Became kinda emo recently.I had always thought that there will be no choice for me to become pregnant again after the misscarriage in year 2007 till I met our master,till I prayed sincerely to Buddha.

And I know by praying sincerely,I will get what I prayed for and the children given will be a good one.I strongly believed no doubt out of 10 friends of mine,only 1-2 don’t believe this story of mine.Still to me,both my children don’t come by easy unlike many others who can get it real fast.

I still choose to believe that the children that was God send which we prayed for will be healthy,easy to take care,have fate with others(which people loves looking at)..

Looking at my two children,I know they are given by God and long term praying is good for us.

Last week upon visiting and praying,our master had told us that when we keep praying,Buddha will give us blessing not only for the family but also the children.The more we pray,the more healthier and pretty our children can get.Yes,looking at Adelle,I believed.Now is to pray sincerely for Ayden.

On top of that,each time we are facing any dificulities(when I discharge fr hospital),the problem will normally goes off by itself.Buddha is helping us all.

With Adelle and Ayden,I strive to give them the best,if not the 2nd best.Had been telling myself,after the lost,Buddha is kind to me by granting 2 kids to me,a cute,beautiful and clever ones:)

As I had posted in my bloggie before that my mum will come over to help me around 10am and leave my place by 2pm while my mother in law will come over to help at 4-7pm.

But today,I’m on my own!!Yes to try out and see if I can handle both kids while preparing for our lunch as well as to bathe the two of them.

Yes,half a day is gone and I did the normal routine,that was to bathe Adelle and Ayden before 10am.They were all ready by this time.

Now I had woke up around 7am and prepared the veggies needed to prepare for lunch.In this way I don’t have to worry not having enough time when both children are awake.I gonna plan my time well and fast.Knowing the style of Ayden that he will get cranky when we don’t attend to his needs after lying down on the rocker for a long time.

So far so good.I settled them both by 10am and play with Adelle while latching Ayden till he finishes his milk.By 11am,Ayden gets a little cranky and I had hold on to him and walk around holding him upright(he loves this way)so that he can fall asleep faster while Adelle plays happily on her own.Very soon,Ayden fall asleep fr 1130am till now at 2pm,he is still sleeping.This makes it easier for me to prepare the lunch for Adelle and myself,Adelle to feed herself on her lunch,watch the Tv program with her and by 1pm to leave her in the room to nap on her own while I peep at her on and off together as peeping at Ayden as well.Very soon,Adelle fell asleep with Ayden still napping and had missed one milk feed.

This is what I call it as a routine.With a routine like this makes it easier for me to handle two children of different age group together.I believe with more practise,I can even step out of the house on a weekdays.

Routines are important and is our saviour when needed.:)

I love my children!!Being able to see them grow is more than I can ask for.

Wanted the best for them within our abilities.I know it’s hard if daddy is the only one working.Therefore I must go back to work no matter what in order to help daddy to provide a good life for our two children.

Many will ask since I had taken care of Adelle till two years and above,why not do the same for Ayden.Well,he is a boy and should be more independent than a girl.Seriously,I’m not superwoman who can take care of two young children at the same time.Plus I still wanna buy more things for my children,so its still a good choice that I help the daddy out by working no doubt my drawn salary might not help a lot and is still ideal that I stay home taking care of them.But at least let me go out and have a breather,it will be better.

Things seem to get better now.In no time,I will be able to handle the two children alone by myself at home without any help.Give me time,I’ll be able to do so.

Starting from next week,I’ll try a day staying home with both kids,prepare the lunch and see how thing goes without my mum and mother in law coming over to help.I hope I can survive at the end of the day.

For the sake of my children,I must and can do it!!!:)

Every day is a new challenge to me.I woke up to get the two children ready before my mum comes over to help out in the noon till 2pm.

Therefore,I will normally batheĀ  both Adelle and Ayden just before 930am un order to get them ready before mum’s comes over.All was well,no doubt Ayden tends to get a little more cranky when I am trying to bathe Adelle.Therefore I always make sure Ayden is taken care of like be sure that he had already finish his milk before I start bathing Adelle.

I had been doing so for the past few weeks and was glad that everything is all right.I’m able to bathe them before the start of any activities.Same thing goes for evening bath.I will be sure to clean up the floor first before bathing Adelle and lastly to clean up Ayden after which to feed both of them.

Now it’s getting better for very soon,my mum and mother in law will not need to come everyday.In fact,I had already get mother in law not to come over everyday in the evening.So once I settle Adelle afternoon nap,my mum wont have to come everyday in the morning as well.

Now,I have a friend to give thanks to.She had gave me a suggestion on how to let Adelle nap on her own in the afternoon.So after trying like for two days.She did it on her own today!!Was kinda glad that my effort did paid off by training her now.

Very soon,my mum wont need to come over so often to help out since I am all right to be on my own taking care of two which the only problem is that as Adelle cant sleep on her own in the afternoon and expect me to accompany her,this make things hard if I dont have extra pairs of hands to entertain her while caring for Ayden.But now slowly to train Adelle,I should be able to be on my own very soon.

These few nights,Ayden had been so tired and slept for quite a long hours at night for at least 3hrs straight and often misses the feeding time.

Reason being was that he don’t sleep much during the day.And often sleep more at night.Good in a way so that both dear and myself had more time for night sleep.Plus I had given him formula during his night feed(once) and he sleep longer for at least 3hrs in a row.

So normally I gonna pump the express breast milk out during his last feed in order not to feel engorment when there is no latch on during the night feed.

As for Adelle,she naps for as long as nearly 3hrs in the afternoon and even for night time she is too sleepy and start to sleep by 11pm.

It seems that she gets tired easily as well. Since she wakes up at 4pm and only goes to bed by 11pm,which was 7hrs later.She is too tired by then.

Things go round and round everyday.It goes like a cycle,repeating the same thing.

I am also trying hard to repeat the same thing,to prepare them,to look after them.

Sometimes I dread weekdays where I have to face all these.Was thankful that my mum comes over to help everyday till afternoon comes and I will be on my own again.

Hopefully the day comes where I can be alone with two children everyday soon without any help.

The growing journey of Adelle and Ayden

Alot of people told me that Ayden looks so much like Adelle.Seriously at certain angles,they do look alike,especially when they close their eyes and sleep!!

Growing together with them is a joy and blessing for God had given them to us.I know for now Adelle is able to be caring to her brother.She tends to look for her brother early in the morning upon waking up,tends to kiss and hug him out of a sudden,helps to rock him when Ayden was lying down on the rocker,use a blanket and pillow and placed on him,places his pacifier for him and also name everyone of us in the family inclusive of Ayden.She goes,bad bad(daddy),ma mer(mummy),ah ber(Adelle),A den(Ayden)

Seriously,I am so glad that it took Adelle less than two mths to get adapt with the new comer,Ayden.It was not easy initially but now all was well,we are more or less settled and feel not as stressful as the initial stagr where we and problem handling two at a time.

Now my aim was to train Ayden to sleep in the stroller,Adelle to walk more instead of asking the daddy to carry her.As for home activities,its getting better as we can plan the time better,who to take care of the kids and takes turn.Like daddy eats first while I handle the two,or daddy handles Ayden and pat him to sleep while I handle Adelle doing her normal routine.Or the other way round.

For night feed either 10+/11+pm,I had given Ayden the formula(just for one feed per day),so dear will do the feeding while I pump(normally Adelle already sleep by 11pm,or we will see who needs the night feed and put to sleep first)Therefore after pumping and washing I get to sleep for the next 3hrs since Ayden is on formula.After 3hrs,I did latching every 2hourly and this boy is super accurate in his timing!!!

Well since everything gets much better,I’m feeling so relieve and know that this growing phrase will be over very soon.In fact another few months time when both my kids are older,things will be much easier to handle.
Looking forward to!!:)

Some weeks ago,Adelle was given a set of puzzle to play around with.A puzzle(eg:a cat)with 7/8 pieces to fix.Well,since its her very first time trying on so many pieces of puzzle,she had a little problem doing it.But the amazing part was,it didn’t take her long to do it.In fact,she managed to do so on the 3rd day of trying.Perhaps,she had been playing around with this puzzle fixing on one of the iphone app.

This whole box of puzzle comes with 8pieces of different animals(cat,rabbit,goose,duck,etc)and each animals has 7/8pieces to fix.This took her about 3days to be able to finish mastering how to fix all these animals.I’m pretty amaze of how a 2yr old toddler can do it as I rememered that during thosr days when I teach,the 3yrs old can’t fix a two pieces puzzle well.

2days ago,I was on Facebook chat with this teacher from Happy Train,Adelle Right Brain Training teacher.Guess what,she was telling me,for age 2 toddlers,they are supppse to fix a 12pcs puzzle for this term in sch.I’m pretty shock though I know toddlers sure will be able to do so,but didn’t expect to be that fast!!Therefore,I should feel thankful that Adelle is able to fix a 7/8pieces of puzzle at least.
So I shall give Adelle this challenge to find her a 12-16pieces puzzle to try on.Here it’s another activity that is learning through play.They play while learning and also to stimilate their Brain cells.

Seriously,looking at the rate of the things Adelle had learned,I’m kinda worried that she might lose interest in learning things that gonna be repeated(those I had already taught her)in sch next Jan.So hopefully I hope that the class teacher will create an interesting learning experience in class to make her learning ongoing.

Next about Ayden.Well,same as Adelle,we will be bringing him for Right Brain Training when he turns 5mths old comes Jan.Had already chat with the teachers at Happy Train about this.They are looking forward to it.

Ayden gonna get the same thing (even start flashing flashcards at 2mths old next month)as Adelle when come to training.Plus I can see the effect on Adelle for going to sch at young age,home coaching that all these learning starts training when young to make their interest in learning ongoing and build up their foundation.

It’s not stressing the child by studying using old method that was to write all day long.Here we are talking about learning through play activities during lesson time for young age.It’s an happy experience when they get to play while learning.

At least this is something I can do for my children.To start them young and not live to regret if I didn’t start them earlier.I gonna do my very best for them.

Like yesterday when I visited our master,he was telling us that we will have a good life next time when our children grow up(not sure how he sees it,but I know he had such abilities of telling).It also means we pray once weekly in the past n also for now.No doubt the traveling,we still make our way there.

Or perhaps,we had started training them while young,so that they will love to learn when comes to school.Thats what master means by having good life in future?
Whatever it is,do hope that both my children grow up healthy and this is the most impt part.

Master jokingly say this to us.We are carrying a child on our arms.I’m carrying Ayden while dear carry Adelle.Unlike in the past,we have only one child to carry,now we have two!!
It also means whateve we pray for it comes true!!

I just love my two kids,the feeling is getting stronger each day.Having such feeling that they will stay at this stage,another part of me wishes that they grow up faster.

Seriously,what am I thinking about?But one thing for sure,no doubt with all the post natal blues,I had never regretted having any kids.In fact,Im glad to have Adelle n Ayden as my children.Felt very blessed to have them.

It’s pretty difficult at the early stage,but knowing that I’m overcoming it very soon.At least for now,my feelings are not as bad as during the confinement period.At least I feel better n not lousy anymore.
Plus I’m setting a routine for them both hoping by doing so,it will makes thing easier for my mum who will be taking care of them comes after Jan.

I’ll try to blog as much as I can when I have the spare time just like now.

In fact I managed to make Adelle n Ayden sleeps while I do my own things yesterday.It’s a little achievement for me at least for now.Hope to keep it ongoing till I get better hands on with.

Ayden is finally 5weeks old with Adelle approaching 26mths old in a few days time.

Their age difference is exactly two yrs old.Sometimes while looking at the photos seem to be like their age difference is huge.

Adelle had been sweet,she will help me to take care of Ayden when needed.At time,when he cries,be sure to see Adelle going to Ayden and kept calling his name,trying to pat or rock him to comfort him down.Her actions made me feel glad for her.

Staying home with them everyday,time passes very fast.In just a spin,weekends is approaching.

Just yesterday,I gave Adelle the express breast milk.(the milk I had pump out)Had pumped out extra and this gave Adelle the privilege to have breastmilk again.

Could remember Adelle had her last breastmilk at 8mths old.Had thought that she might reject breastmilk,BUT she didn’t and happily drank it till the very last drop!!Was shock to see she stil could remember how breastmilk tasted like.If I have extra left,be sure to give some to her everyday.:)

Ayden turns 5weeks old tomorrow.It seems that I had just given birth to him yesterday.Without knowing,time flies that fast.

As many of my friends had told me it gonna be very fast when the child grows up.I know how true it was after seeing Adelle and now Ayden time.
Imagine that I will be going with him to take his 1st 6-in-1 vaccination next Fri.

Things are more or less settled down.At the very least,I know that Adelle is finally being “adjusted to”having a brother at home.She could accept her brother with helping me to open up his diaper and uses a wipes to clean him,prepare his stuff for bath,help me shake the rocker while I’m preparing water for his bath,helps to cover his blanket n pillow while he is lying down.These are the simple tasks which Adelle had been doing lately and from here I know that she is adapting to this new member in the family.

Starting all over again is not easy especially everything is in hands for the 1st born till now at toddler stage while having a 2nd child.But then,each time I see Ayden and know that God had given me a cutie child is more than I can ask for.

Just that now is the time that things need to get better with Ayden to pass his 3months growing spurt for everything to be place neatly again.I believe that by 5/6months of age,Ayden should be better.That was what happen to most infants.Another 4/5months to go.

I’m going to introduce Ayden one feed of formula,to introduce him with feeding bottle as well.To prepare him for the future thou.

Another few more months to endure before setting Ayden to a routine since its pretty hard to do so and makes him fall into routine,but then no harm trying.
