Big boy now :) And looking ever so serious!
What? I'm still a baby! And I cheeew! (With my leg up like a little beng beng, no less!)
That day, he had quite a bit of "outside food" - I gave him my tofu, rice and the inside of my teriyaki salmon. Gotta time the feeds properly such that he finished his bowl after we were done so that we could up and leave should he get cranky when he realised there was none left! But thankfully, he was alright..
He is super efficient at his lizard crawl now - check this out:
Doesn't that just remind you of Sadako in The Ring?! :p
He's not terribly good at climbing yet, still burying his head a lot. But using my hand as a support, he could prop up his little butt and land his feet on the floor, even moving his feet forward to get into a standing position eventually!
He can also climb from the floor to his bed now, often with or in search of his pacifier! Or my iPhone *.*
Since two weekends ago, I've been doing some serious mopping so that I can let him crawl around. Sometimes he would have crawled to the door when I get to him! The first time he did that was last Monday just before Sito left at 5 am - I didn't know and hit his head with the knob behind the door :(
My first reaction was shock. I held my hands to my mouth before I reached in to shuffle him sideways so that I could get the door open to get to him. Almost cried with him but he stopped pretty soon!
And in the morning, usually, I'll let him play in the room while I prepare stuff. Sometimes, he would crawl out happily :) But he has not gone too far from his room yet...
Another video of him crawling, this time at IFC:
Just that morning, I was thinking how nice it was to have all those toys in IFC; he would never get all of those if I were to take care of him myself! And that very evening, I saw how he enjoyed himself :) And the carer told me he was standing in the playpen and trying to move around the perimeter by holding on to the rim!
We went out quite a bit in the past few weeks - we were all healthy! Now let's stay that way...
The one day that Sito wasn't feeling too well, I cooked porridge for all of us - beef, spinach and pumpkin!
Alright, it looks pretty gross *.* But it was yummy! I added a sweet corn into the rice cooker too - it was so expensive ok, $2.40!
ZK is now taking two steady meals a day, each almost completely replacing milk. I said almost, because he seems to be eating more cereals at home and more porridge in school, and when he doesn't take enough, we give him milk shortly after.. I wonder why.. My porridge is so nice! And we use the same cereals!
Some time early last week, I stopped nursing on my left - he had not taken very well to that factory for a while by then. So now, it's just my right. Talk about dua suey liap... O_o
We were having dinner at Menya Musashi - there was absolutely nothing there that I could give him but he'd had milk so it was alright. But check out that little mouth!
This is not snot, Mama. This is my cookie. I just don't know how it got there...
I usually give him a cookie after his cereals so that I can clean up. Except last last Saturday - I got the timing wrong and his eyes were shutting as I fed him water after every few mouthfuls of cereals! It was pretty hilarious actually, that is, until he started whining cos he was too sleepy!
Oh, have I mentioned before? That day, 23 March, I was cooking porridge for him to bring to IFC as I had to work that Saturday. I delayed picking him up from his little seat and he went "mamamamamamama"! :) Whatever that means! :)
Anyway, with all these solids, he's pooping seriously gross stuff now. He must have had a stomachache on April's Fool day - instead of crawling or whining to be picked up, he lay on his belly on the floor, softly whining :( He kept whining softly as I massaged his belly on the changing table. Then it happened. Can't remember if it was then but there was once he pooped a little extra after I put on diaper cream! Thank goodness it was not projectile poop! And so I decided that that night, he would graduate - no more shit pad on his bed!
We've been going to baby spa more regularly too. He fits better into this now:
My little towkay :)
And last Saturday, we went to Plaza Sing instead of Harbourfront - they had containers with punched holes that totally mesmerised him!
We finally used the voucher from the baby spa when we signed up for a year - got a free framed photo:
It doesn't come in soft copy so I took the above using my phone hence the colour.. But the two below are nice! Cos we paid $30 for each, ouch!
Aiyoh, why so poor thing?!
We find this super classic. Many of us must have a photo sitting on some rattan chair!
