The growing children!I almost missed every part of their growing milestones.Missed both Adelle and Ayden “baby moment”,they look so much alike.

Both their eyes are so alike that they both have big double eyelids.
Eyes are so important in a person features.I’m so much happy that both of them have great eyes!

Beside so,both of my children had different characteristics.Adelle being the elder sister loves her pacifier so much that she can’t go without them.Ayden simply refused any pacifiers of various brands from the moment he was born till now approaching 3mths old.

Well,had decided not to give Ayden any pacifier since he had decided not to have any.It really save the time and effort from weaning him of any.

So lately,I had decided to wean Adelle off pacifier,seeing how she “throw”away her pacifier when it brokes.Therefore I told her to throw the pacifier into the dustbin for she sees it for herself.

When it’s her nap time.When she asked for it,I had told her that she threw it away just now.There she goes,keeping quiet without asking for it again.
During the night,it’s worst.When she was sleeping,she tends to cry with her eyes.Seeing this makes my heart ache.But this is the only way to wean her off pacifier.Frankly speaking,Adelle is consider a well behaved girl.When I say throw away the pacifier,she really threw it away without really asking except feeling uncomfortable.Had heard that some other kids will cry and cry for it even if they know the pacifier is gone.
Seriously,Adelle is consider a good girl no doubt getting more mischevious than before.

As for Ayden,I’m still having problem with him not taking milk bottle.I had tried almost all brands of teats,get others to feed him,but he just refused.Really at my wit’s end.

With this,I’m not sure if I can go back to work force comes next Feb.Hopefully by then when he turns 6mths old,he will be able to understand and takes it milk bottle.

On 26th Oct,off we go to the MASS GATHERING organized by the forum August mummies.We did not use forum to post all our comments but using Facebook secret group which is better that allows only members to view instead to open for the public.

Well for this gathering,there was a total of at least 100mummies.Thats why we call it the mass gathering.All of them were Aug 2011 mummies thou.

A pity I didn’t manage to catch up with the mummies that I’m more familiar with in the group.Was raining heavily that feels hot after it and Adelle was feeling pretty tired by noon since she wake up quite early.So we left the place after the lunch n after chatting with some mummies.

Off we go,taking the Circle line from Buona Visita towards Serangoon.It was damn fast!!Only about7/8 stops and we landed at Nex.Seriously with the newly open stations of Circle line,I can go as far as the West or even to my “old home area” at Holland V.I missed the nice yummy food there.

Adelle was pretty tired and doze off after we boarded the train from Queenstown MRT with her comfy stroller of cushioning.So we let her had the beauty sleep before we decided to go down to Punggol Waterway and have a look after it’s official opening.

Well from the photos,we can see how pretty it was even though the other part of it was still developing.

We managed to walk around with daddy bjorn-ing Ayden while he pushes the stroller and I holded Adelle hand and walk together.

It’s another weekends evening hangout for the family instead of the busy shopping malls.

Bonding among my two babies is important.Seeing them growing healthly and happily together makes me feel thankful.

Seen too much unhealthly cases of little children lately which made me feels sad and my heart goes to them.

Very often,I asked myself why such sad cases happens to young children?Could it be their parents sins were too much that such thing happens to their children or even unborn babies?Or could it be that the karma which each child brings into this world is enormous?

Whatever it is,I am always thankful to Buddha,pray before and after I gotten pregnant.Most importantly is to pray every week with my kids for good health and children to grow up well and behave.

I’m glad I did all these all along and God given me Adelle who is easy to care for since infants till now in her toddler stage.Now with Ayden who is all right to take care except the problem of bottle feed.

2 babies of mine are Buddha children that was given to us.I will always bear this in mind for my master always emphasis in this.He said”Buddha children are always the best”

I remembered each time I bring Adelle to our master place and each time he chant and sprinkle with holy water,Adelle will not scream or cry whenever the water landed on her body or face.Same thing goes to Ayden,he will be keeping still,not giving a single move.Our master said,those children not from his home temple will be fussing around and he had seen cases like this.

Encourage the child and make him or her pray since young will do this child good.Believe or not,the child will behave very well once we introduce praying to the child ad early as possible.Now looking at Adelle,we had seen it!Reason was,we bring her to master place once every weekly ever since she was a newborn,so now it’s Ayden’s turn for this.

So for now,I must tell myself this,to train and teach my two children right from the start of being good with well behaviour anywhere they go.That’s what we call parenting.

Sherryl is contented with 2 kids.

“Contented with two children”This is the phrase that best describe all my thoughts now.

Thinking back,which is two days ago at 4yrs back,I had a surgery.Had never failed to “not recalling” about this incident each time Oct comes.

I’m sure that by taking vegetarian yearly once in the lunar 9mth(normally in Oct),doea help in clearing some of the sins for myself and the “lost one”

I don’t know much each time I think about this,it seems so fated.Reason being was that,I lost my “first unborn”in Oct 07,yet I conceived Adelle in Oct 08 and straight after eating vegetarian for that whole month!!Normally it gets difficult to conceive if not on balance diet,but then it seems not true for me.Basically more towards being sincere and the promises made to God.

I always believe that Adelle and Ayden are sent healthly to us by our Buddha.Each and every incident that had happen made us know that it’s somehow being linked to all our praying.

I remembered the word our master had said.”Pray to Buddha,our features/children features will look great!!”

For now,I began to understand and believe it’s real.He always advise us that being pregnant and pray always will make the unborn looks good and clear some of the sins this baby gonna bring over.Yes,this I believe once again.

There are so many teachings that I can’t list down all here.Just wanna share a little here with my friends that I find it interesting and amazing at least for my case.

Having Adelle and Ayden made me feels contented with joy no doubt the failed pregnancy 4yrs back.But for sure,Buddha had give me his blessing.That was to give me a girl and a boy(no doubt I’m unaware of what gender was the failed one)

I’m always felt thankful each time I look at Buddha.Sometimes,I will be feeling that bit of thoughts of how bad things was and tear.

It was never easy that year,I know I had pull through and kept my promises to Buddha by having vegetarian for a whole month at lunar calender 9mth.And I must be sure that I can do it before I give such promises.Yes I know I can take vegetarian for the sake of myself and children.Knowing that taking vegetarian made me “cleaner”,clear my sins bits by bits.In fact I felt good doing so.It’s not long from finishing this whole month of vegetarian.

Beside so,seeing how my children grow,and being healthy made everything worthwhile.

I have so much to blog about my children.Shall start off with Adelle!!

Now as I’m giving her the daily lesson at night with daddy pat Ayden to sleep in the dark room normally at 9pm.It had been a routine till two days ago when the daddy finishes pating Ayden to sleep,he saw how Adelle had been studying and decided to print the alphabets for her to trace.This is a good start to prepare her for Pre-Nursery next Jan.And yes,dear was right,its good to start Adelle with this because I remember lots of my ex Pre-N children had difficuilties writing this and only able to master it when they are approaching Nursery level.

Next,the lego sets which we had recently added in more for her made her more interested in.playing.She can spend the whole afternoon fixing it and wanna me to take a photo of what she had done.Here’s her work.

Adelle loves to do “housework”..Again its a good start for her to help me around with.She just love to keep the area clean just like myself.

Each time I vacuum and mop the floor,she will be in front or behind me walking up and down.When the daddy gets her to keep the dry clothes,she will be there to do so.When she saw a pool of water on the table,there she goes using the tissue paper and clean it away.
Today I saw her doing something.She folds the clothes for us!!Gosh,my little girl just love helping

The salmon patty cum egg was prepared by daddy for Adelle.Dear had always want to prepare breakfast for Adelle.Now he gotten his wish!!:)

Next comes to Ayden.Well in another 3mths+,he will be starting solid,so this book comes handy on how to prepare puree.No doubt Im already quite hands on with it,but I need more ideas

Im quite excited to start Ayden on solid.From organic cereal to making of vegetables purees,porridge and also finger food.

All these shall update when he starts solid at 6mths of age.

Finally Ayden gets to meet up with Gareth!!
Now how are we related.Here’s my cousin and her son.We shared the same surname(Jeow),meaning to say our fathers are brothers.

The cutest part was that we didn’t know that we wanna try for a baby bunny.Therefore by the time I reveal to her was when I’m pregnant with Ayden for 2mths with my cousin being pregnant with Gareth for 4mths.

Now the time we meet,Gareth turns 4mths with Ayden being 2mths old and we both having a baby boy.

We were childhood mates,perhaps now it’s our son turn soon.

Still remember the years we all started to get married with lots of topic on wedding planning and now on the topic of babies.

I got married in Jun 2007 while this cousin of mine got married in Dec 2008.

Now her 1st born and my 2nd born came on the same year just two mths in diff thou.Both our babies were delivered by Doc Douglas Ong!!

Beside the two babies,we had another two cousins who gave birth to two baby girls(one in Mar another in Sept)as well.So during Lunar New Year that comes in a few months time,there will be a total of 2 bunnies girl and 2 bunnies boy!!How fun!

*So much more about Adelle and Ayden*

I blog and I post all about my darlings!!As I read every past entries which I had written,I’m glad for keeping a blog.Taking photos of my kids is important as well,I can use them for good usage(eg scrapbooking)

Now Adelle at 27mths of age is weighing at 11.8kg with 83cm.As for Ayden,he jolly well weighs 5.9kg and had double his birth weight.

Well the sister only gotten this weight when she was about 4-6mths old.There’s this saying by old folks that boys tend to be heavier than girls.It’s so true.

Seriously,Ayden will seems to be taller than Adelle next time.Still remember the ultrascan by Doc Ong last time.He said Ayden had toothpicks legs.(long n skinny)Better in a way because Ayden is a boy!

The thing about both of them was,they sleep at the same posture and opened their legs wide during the scan at 15 weeks old and confirm their gender.That seems to be a little alike part of them.

Ayden loves looking at Adelle and never keep his eyes away for once whenever Adelle is near to him.That expression and look given was simply too cute and heartwarming.

Adelle on the other hand will try to play with Ayden,coaxing him whenever he cries.Just like last evening when I needed to prepare Adelle dinner,I had told Adelle to take care of Ayden while I left them behind for a while to scoope her rice for dinner.When I’m doing it,I peek a sneak on them.Guess what,Adelle listens and was pressing the music from the.hanging mobile and kept pating him as though to stop him from.crying.

It had seems that she really understand and cares for her brother.It really made my day happier at the end of the day.On top of that,all these training and telling since Aug till now,a good two months made everything worthwhile.No wonder many with two kids of 2yrs age gap was telling me that it takes a while for #1 to accept the new family member.How true!!
I believed as they get older,more amazing scenes will happen.Great having two children now!!

Updates in Coris

We had actually made the wrong choice in choosing our sofa 4years back.Chosen a material that collects dust and is not “kid friendly”

So for the sake of the young ones,we had decided to change the layout(skin)of the sofa.

Just 1week+ ago,the person in charge came over to collect the sofa and there it goes making Coris looking pretty empty by the look of the picture above.

The differences are there from our current sofa to the “old new sofa”..
Were pretty glad for the job done and most importantly gonna make cleaning easier with just a towel to clean it up!

Of course when Adelle saw how to sofa was being shifted away from home,she kept saying the word “fa”.We had told her that uncle needs to make us a new sofa and will be back soon.She looks puzzled.

So when the sofa came back last night,she was so excited and was climbing up and down the sofa feeling so happy to see her sofa back.

Saw this microfiber slippers dear had gotten?It does makes cleaning easier by wearing it and walk around the house to pick up dust.We had wet it with water and detetgent to go around the house.

Next over the weekends,we are going to get the microfiber bath mat.Supposedly to dry our feet well after bath.
Yes,I’m so in love with all these and loves making the house “clean and shine”

My lovely daughter who turns 27mths

Adelle turns 27months old today.I’m so glad seeing her through all these while,how she had changed from a newborn to infant till now a toddler.

Count my blessing to have such a easy to care yet cute daughter.I used to think that my children might inherit my “stupidness” of not wanting to study,hate studying and having a “lousy brain”..But then after seeing Adelle through all these while,I’m wrong.Adelle inherited the daddy “cleverness”,loves to study.Each time she wanted some(eg,her elmo stickers book),and when we refused to let her have it,we will use the word,”study time!!”..

There she goes,running to the chair and gotten herself ready.It had been since she was 13months old till now at 27months,it had been a daily routine for her.

Looks like I didn’t stress her by introducing early learning but she just love to study.

Again,since she turns 24mths,she tends to get a little naughtier and that was what many meant by “the terrible 2″.

For Adelle,unless need to be we will try to talk sense to her rather than beating of her.I admit beating her a few times when she was being naughty and refused to listen,but most of the time I talk to her nicely.She just wanna listen to good words.Each time I said I’m sad and show her a sad face,she will be there to stop her naughtiness and uses her hand and pat my back and said hug hug to me.That’s my ever lovely daughter.

Compared when she was 24mths and now at 27mths,she understand much better.When she saw her brother who cries while lying down,she will press the music of the hanging mobile,pat her brother as though she was talking and comfort her brother.The time when Ayden just arrive,she was only 25mths old and could not do any of these,not even to share her brother with us.

Thankfully,Adelle had grown up and understanding better of having a brother now.

My daily routine seems so much better with Adelle being able to be indepent while I’m dealing with Ayden.

Looking forward to Adelle turning 3yrs and Ayden turning 1yr next year!!

I love to blog,blogging all about my children mostly.Could remember those days from courtship to preparation of reno/wedding,our lives living together till now we have two children,it’s mostly about them.

Keeping a blog and to post entries about them makes me pretty looking forward to each time.It meant to say what are the stuff I had done with them each day.Beside so,as I read back,I feel kind of achievement.

Caring of them at the same time is not easy.In order not to let Adelle feeling too jealousy,I gonna include her in as well.For eg,each time we come home,be sure to hear us telling Ayden this”we are home Ayden”,next Adelle will say her name as well.Which means she wants us to say “we are home Adelle”..

A simple sentence like this makes her happier as we do include her in as well.

As for Ayden,it seems that he is having the growth spurt.Now going to turn 3months in a few weeks time,there are various things which will have a slight change.His sleeping style is one of them.
He is trying to change the way of sleep.Seriously,I hope he does take in bottle feed soon.I can’t imagine when comes Jan/Feb whereby I needed to work.

So much changes,so much to adapt,life is getting more lively as the day goes by!!
