Mummy's Cuzzies from Ozzie

G'day, mate! These are our Uncles & Auntie from Down Under (clockwise from left: Jason, Lawrence & May). They have emigrated to Melbourne since 1999 but return to S'pore occasionally. Recently, they were back upon knowing that Ah Tai was seriously ill despite that their exams were only a week away.

What good-looking uncles and auntie we have!

In the Driver's Seat

As Gor Gor & I are no longer content with our capsule seats, preferring to struggle free and face the front or stand on our seats to watch the world go by, Daddy got us a Maxi Cosi Priori. But as usual, Daddy only got us 1 cos' he said he must observe to see if we will take to it before he gets us another, knowing that we babies are as erratic as the weather. What a smart daddy we have!

Bye Bye, Ah Tai

The person on Por Por's left is our Ah Tai. She was 84. She had 4 children, including our Por Por. Our Ah Tai was well-travelled, having been to Europe, USA, Australia, China and many other exciting places. She enjoyed her food and counted amongst her favourites, fried hor fun, rojak, chilli and pepper crabs, plum potong and the occasional stout (woohoo!). Mummy said that Ah Tai has just gone to a beautiful place called heaven on Friday. Ah Tai was stoic; she had waited for all her children and grand-children - some flew back from overseas - to say their goodbyes before leaving us without suffering any pain after 5 days at the hospital (she had suffered a stroke). Though Mummy is very sad, she knows that Ah Tai would not have this any other way.

Bye bye, Ah Tai. We love you and are glad that we've had the chance to be loved by you. May your spirit rest in peace.

Precious memories of Ah Tai

Sun, sea & sand

Today's not the first time we've been to the beach, but it's my first time taking a dip in the sea and walking on the soft powdery sand. Daddy & Mummy tried coaxing me to smile for the camera but I was simply too tired (it was past my morning nap time) and the sun in my eyes rendered my eye lids close. Nah, not even Daddy's soaking my legs in the water perked me up Where's Shannen Mei Mei? Why, she fell asleep before we even hit the beach.

Grumpy & sleepy Jayden, drenched and hot

Mei Mei rousing from her slumber

It was at BK that we finally came alive for finally, there's air-con and...food! Daddy & Mummy love the breakfast served at BK.

All perky and smiley, in anticipation of yummy morsels

Burger King...not! More like Saliva King for his daily never-ending drool

Yeah, all hail the Queen, my humble subjects!

Contented and happy, yet hot and sweaty

Float Parade

Apparently, this mushroom float in question was the hot topic in the sgmotherhood jan thread today. And acting on a tip-off from Auntie Von Von, Mummy got Daddy to rush down to Kiddy Palace @ Jurong Point to get us these gems of a float. Ain't they cute? We can hardly wait to get to the pool!!
All I need now is a pina colada, yeah!

Trust Daddy to pick this amphibious 'vehicle' for me. See, I can even manoeuvre it on land, with my trusted duckie guiding me!

Elevated to New Heights

Thanks to Daddy's colleague, Auntie Serene, we now have our very own high-chair! What can we say, but the air up here sure smells fresher, which makes our food all the more appetising!

Daddy says that if we prove to be good and stay still in the chair, he will get another one for us so that we need not take turns.

Babies Day Out

After having missed an outing last weekend (Mei Mei was sick), Daddy & Mummy took us out shopping at Suntec City today, yeah! Mei Mei could hardly contain her excitement

Trick or treat? (Toys R Us)

A very tired-looking fireboy

Our pit-stop at Swensens

Up & About

Thanks for all the well-wishes! Shannen Mei Mei & I have recovered and are doing what we do best - messing up the house and making the the adults worry now that we can pull-to-stand and cruise!

Precisely because of our new-found 'mobility', Daddy & Mummy have 'fortified' our play area with lots of cushions and mattresses. and in the process, created more fun for us!

Shannen's Sick

Shannen Mei Mei woke up a cranky baby today. Suspecting that she was feeling feverish, Daddy & Mummy took her temperature to find that it was 38 degrees! Following a quick call to Auntie Gwen (Mummy's ex-classmate who's a doctor), Mummy gave Mei Mei a dose of paracetamol and placed the fever patch on her forehead to bring down the fever with advice to monitor her temperature every 4 hours. Mei Mei had poor appetite; while she drank her milk, she threw up a couple of times, and refused to touch her porridge. Throughout the day, Mei Mei was either sleeping or looking listless. Mummy was very worried and was carrying and 'sayang-ing' Mei Mei the whole day.

Poor Mei Mei, I hope that she will get well soon and play with me....

Dapper Dressers that We Are

It doesn't matter to Mummy that we've more clothes than we could ever wear, at every stage of our growth, that is. Mummy says that she gets an adrenaline rush from buying stuff for us. Some 'cheap & good' buys from recent sgmotherhood forum BPs which Mummy has joined.

Jayden & the Chocolate Cake

Whoever invented chocolate cake must have been a godsend. Ever since Shannen Mei Mei & I were given our first taste of the delectable dessert on Mummy's birthday (Daddy bought Mummy a Temptations Chocolate Etoile), we have been eagerly anticipating the next chocolate rush experience!

Yummy Chocolate Truffle! And ALL mine cos' Shannen Mei Mei's fast asleep! Yeah!

Whoever came up with the theory of diminishing marginal utility sure knew what he was saying *burp*

Gor Gor says that the baby who sleeps less gets the cake. Hmph, fine! But more sleep a happier baby makes. See, I'm still as pleased as punch with my take ONE Baby Bites!
