ZY turning one!

ZY called me mama on Tuesday night! :)

I didn't pay much attention. Only heard him crying out from the baby monitor but when I got out of my door, it hit me that he was calling for ME!

I remember that with ZK, for quite a while, it wasn't clear whether he was calling me or just going mamamamamama. But on Tuesday night, it was very clear - he called out "Mama! Mama! Mama!" when he woke at 9.45 pm.

Me happy :)

ZY could say three other words before this: uh-oh, 哥哥 and nen nen. For uh-oh, it's more like making the sound without making an O with his lips but it's very clear cos he says that about things on the floor :) And similarly, he looks at ZK when he makes 哥哥 sounds. I used "nen nen" with ZK for a while but not with ZY so I think he was trying to say 奶奶 - and this is every morning and night for his first and last bottle!

And he's not even one! ZK only spoke a bit later but guess having him talk all the time helps introduce more speech to ZY.

So ZY turns one this Saturday! But we had an early celebration on Sunday as we will be in Malacca this weekend.

We started with presents, then shoe wearing, then picking a job (career? :p), before heading out for lunch at Swatow...

Papa, the shoes are on the wrong side!

Don't worry, GuGu will right it for you!

Now let's walk!

But I want to take a closer look! You call them shoes?

The dinosaur is ZY's present but think ZK is the one playing with it mostly, with ZY looking at it longingly by the side..

I introduced the items to him before letting him loose. And he chose....

Ball! Ok, do we have a tennis national team?

He picked up the pen next, touched the abacus, threw the rulers and pick up the stethoscope.

I'm Dr ZY...

With Mama on the way to lunch

Happy birthday, ZY! :)

Come, 哥哥 will cut the cake with you..

The cake was a white chocolate carrot cake from Delcie's.. Wanted to get the yogurt cake like for ZK's first birthday but the outlet near us closed. Finally found a cake with no added sugar, i.e. ZY could have it too. But it was just too healthy. The carrot cake part was too dry. The cinnamon taste was very strong. I couldn't taste the chocolate at all. And it was super ex - 500g for $55! Never again!

I've packed new clothes for him to wear on his birthday. Trips are always bad for sleep but I hope he'll get enough somehow and spend his birthday happily! :)

I love you, ZY! :)

My first white hair?

As I was removing the fallen hair from my hair brush just now, I spotted a strand of 70% white!

At almost 35 years and a half, I'm starting to show the most definite sign of ageing...

But that is not my first white hair. I used to have this short and thick strand of white hair at one sideburn area either very near or just inside the edge of the ear. I noticed it some time in secondary or JC, and I plucked it out!

Now I'm wishing for a mob of stark white hair when I'm old :)

It's happening...

ZY crawled to the door last night, crying for me. He'll be in our room before we know it! *.*

And because I've been very busy, I haven't been sorting out photos :( But I have accumulated a lot of little ZY stories so I'll write them down now... The pictures can come later..

20 March

He poo-ed into my hand! Ok, I had a wet wipe between the poo and my bare hands but I could feel the warmth! I was wiping his poopy diaper five minutes prematurely...

More recently, however, he tends to be constipated. Poor thing..

19 April

ZY can now clap on cue. If he wants to entertain us, that is.

25 April

I thought ZY said "mama"! Perhaps I was biased... But he really sounded like he said "no no" when gesturing at all the no-no items...

And this weekend, he's finally crawling, albeit with his butt still touching the floor. And now? He's speed-crawling!

On Vesak Day on 1 June, I learnt that I might have crawled like that when I was a baby *.*

7 May

After flipping comes sitting up. ZY could pull himself up into a sitting position. I remain sleep deprived..

12 May

At bedtime, he spotted his shadow cast by the nightlight. He seemed to be playing with his shadow by swaying left and right! I couldn't be sure then but now I'm sure - he plays with his shadow! Now ZK did not do that so you could imagine my surprise! ZK also didn't crawl all over the room at bedtime, or knock on the cabinets in the dark. Sito thinks it's because ZY is smarter.. And he began to think of that commercial...

28 May

I felt his first pearly whites! Luckily I stopped breastfeeding already! :p

30 May

He finally had rice at lunch! But haven't tried since then as he was feverish last week..

6 June

Last weekend, I found that he could put his pacifier back into his mouth. Perhaps he could do that for a while but his usual attitude towards his pacifier is to throw it far far away...

In other news...

We're looking for a new helper now. Need someone who is able to take over my night duty until ZY can walk over on his own, like ZY. Um, together with ZK? *.* Our bed is not big enough!!!

I smell my babies

ZY is at the perfect size where he can sit with his legs around my waist and look up at me, just inches away from my face. So I hugged him like that just now, his head in the crook of my right arm. I kissed him; he smiled. I sniffed loudly at his baby skin; he tried to sniff too and gave me his piggy face, which I first saw yesterday morning. My baby is so cute! Even though he was scentless as his last bath was in school, I smelled him some more :)

When it was time to pack ZK off to bed, he let me carry him in a cradle hold, his head on his pillow in the crook of my right arm. I kissed and smelled him - he smelled so nice from his shower! I sayang-ed his baby cheeks. And he said, "Can I come down, please?" My baby is so cute! So I laid him down on the bed. This time, he didn't ask to be showered with kisses. He just rolled over and slept. I kissed him anyway :) And I'll smell him again pretty soon when he comes over in the dead of the night!

Six on a Wednesday

Yup, it was also a Wednesday this day six years ago :)

It just so happened that I was at ROM last Thursday for work, and it occurred to me then that the last time I was there, it was today six years ago. In fact, I almost chose to go last Friday, and last Friday six years ago was when we got to ROM early in the morning to verify documents and make some statutory declaration.

Despite having had two kids already, glad that sometimes we still feel like two kids who just started dating - on the second day of LNY in February when Sito was out with the guys, he recorded himself singing a song for me; last month, it was my turn to sing for him on stage at Rocku Yakiniku :)

Happy sixth, my dear!
