August Reflecctions - Let it Go

The past couple of months have some what been a trying and difficult time for me and I guess Hb and Kimi too. I'm sad and ashamed to say I've not been the best mother & wife. Kimi's erratic feeding and refusal to nap in the day has almost driven me nuts! I was totally exhausted and unmotivated.

However, I saw some light at the end of the tunnel after a brief conversation with Aunty Pat. She made me realise how I really must learn to let go. To me, I felt I've already 'LET GO' alot, but it seems that wasn't enough.

What really woke me up was when she said that a baby's growth is not measured by the grams he puts on or the centimetres he grows but how well he is overall developing in his motorskills and adjusting socially. But most importantly, he must be a happy baby.

She also shared how she had a hard time too with Leonard but came to realise it's really not worth forcing everything and making the baby and yourself unhappy.

So, I've taken her dear advice, log, cart & barrel. Yes, to a certain extent, feeding times are more relaxed and better now. But, Kimi being a fussy eater like myself will never change... I can only say, I will try my best to Let Go.

I pray and hope that this is only a passing phase and it will get better!

I've got 2 Teeth!!

It's official - Kimi's right central incisor (bottom right tooth) is coming out! He's confirmed no more a 'Bo-gay' (toothless in Hokkien) baby not that both are coming out. Saw the slit yesterday and today I can feel the sharp ends.

Yippee!! Can't describe the happiness both hb & I felt!

Baby - Scrambled Eggs

Kimi is getting bored of eating cereal and more cereal or puree again.

Since he's oso passed 7 months, I've decided to make something different for brekkie today - Baby Scrambled Eggs (yolks only, no whites to bb under 1 yr).

Not too bad, he ate all of it! (left pix looks a tad dry, but it's actually not..guess am not such a good photographer! But better be safe than sorry as yolk must be cooked well).

Baby Scrambled Eggs
- 1 egg yolk
- 30 to 60 ml of formula milk/breast milk
- 1/4 slice of Cheddar cheese
- a little butter or Canola/Olive oil

- Separate yolk fom white and beat yolk lightly till even.
- Heat non-stick pan lightly with a littlt butter or oil.
- Break cheese slice into smaller pieces and put into yolk.
- Add milk into yolk mixture.
- Once pan is a little hot, reduce fire to small and add in egg mixture.
- Use a fork or spatula to continuously turn or stir mixture so that it doesn't become an omelette.
- Stir till yolk is well-cooked.
- Remove and serve immediately. ENJOY!

Kimi's First Tooth

After months & months of pain & anticipation, we finally could feel Kimi's first cutting of his left lower central incisor.

I discovered it at Jen's place today when she exclaimed excitedly that Kimi has jus cut a tooth. Don't know why but I was so happy & excited. Bet he'll look v cute with 2 lower teeth!

Too bad, I can't take a pix as it's almost impossible to snap one while trying to pry open his mouth and tongue. Next time dudes!

Water Baby!

The girls came over for a swim today so I brought Kimi to join them. What a ball of a time he had!!! He's such a water baby - simply loves water and was kicking furiously and almost like a pro! Catch the video clip for a sneak! (Sorry, excuse my excitement and enthusiasm in the background -yes, I do find it irritating too.. but I don't know how to mute it! So you have to live with it! Muhahah!!)
