Interacting is important.So right now Adelle can interact with Ayden,play with him,makes him laugh,gave him things,but for Ayden he still cant.Therefore he shows his interest to “interact” with Adelle was to smile wholeheartedly,make sound to her,use his hand to grip on the stuff that was given.
This I call it another form of interaction.Is already good enough and heart warming.At least both kids are trying their new growing stage.
Im glad and had been looking forward to this.From pregnancy till Adelle and now Ayden,what Im even more looking forward to is to see them grow up and to take care of each other.
Time will tell,before we know it,they will have grow up!!:)
Ayden is such a darling in my eyes.He is turning 7mths old in just a few days time.
Could still remember the day when Im doing confinement with all the post natal blues,I wish that next Aug will come very soon,now it’s only 5mths + to his 1st Birthday party.
When everything is now set into a routine,somehow I feel so much better than the first few months when Ayden arrived.Now,Im feeling so much better as he grows older.
Talking about his 1st Birthday preparation,its indeed lots of buys and things for booking.There is a need to book his Birthday cake which I had already done so,the party deco which Im looking at something simple,the goodies bags which Im going to do something different from what Adelle had.
I have so many things to prepare as I dont believe in last min work.Therefore I hope to get everything ready by Jul and wait for the date to come.
To learn and match the words for Musical instruments.
To learn the days of the week.
To match capital letters n small letters.
To match the various solar systems together with the correct words.
It’s time for more teaching aids!!No doubt Im working,I still made an effort to do up some teaching aids.I don’t wanna break Adelle interest in learning,therefore making/buying new teaching aids are important.
Yes Adelle loves to learn new things.Each time I give her something different,she will be smiling happily,showing me her excited face.
This made me feel even more achieved.Nevertheless,these teaching aids can often pass down to Ayden when he is old enough to understand,or some of it might be suitable for him to learn now.
I have something in mind,that is to write up a lesson plan once every weekly.Of course with themes.Therefore,its important for me to write in a booklet form or to jot it down via mobile.At the very least,I will be able to trace what I had covered.(Can do the same thing for Ayden)
This was what I had for Ayden,a diaper clutch to store all his diapers(Adelle had seperated set)and the toy strap to hold on to his toys while he is sitting in the stroller.
The snack ball for Adelle and Ayden.The one for Adelle was purchased 2yrs back and recently bought another one for Ayden.
Uses u-like to blend all of Ayden purees and soon to blend juices for them both.
Pumpkin puree for Ayden!
All right,Ayden had taken quite a few different type of purees.Pumpkin was one of them and he loves it to bits.Another was sweet potato puree.Same as Adelle who loves sweet potato even until now.There was a saying that goes “Teochew loves sweet potato”,how true it can be??!!
Used u-like blender to blend these purees and it turned out to be pretty fine.
Somehow Ayden seems to know that
once the nursing pillow comes,its time for milk.He screamed loudly upon seeing it.He knows!!
Gotten the snack ball for Ayden which Adelle already had one.This snack ball shall serve as a snack cum play for both of them no doubt adelle had already outgrown it.But it works well using it to store puffs or melts.
Yesterday,Adelle finally walks on our way back taking train fr United Square to Sengkang with Ayden being a good boy sitting in the stroller without being grumpy for a gd 1hr of train rides.
I always believe that things will get better sooner or later.
Happy to start coloring the bear.
Concentrating in coloring.
Adelle is happy!
Starting to paste after the cut.
Adelle and her teddy bear.
Adelle and her bear take 2!
Her coloring,her work.
Adelle loves story time.
Goldilock and the three bears
The homemade teaching aids that match with the story
She was amazed with the teaching aids.
Somehow this teaching aids and the story gives her better understanding.
Yes,Im into homemade teaching aids again!At least for once,I can make some for Adelle to go along with the story of Goldilock and the three bears.
She loves it all!
Im thinking of writing a lesson plan for Adelle weekly so that I will know what I had/hasnt cover.
Seems like Im able to prepare more teaching aids for Adelle now that Im going to stay home again.
Saw that leap pad?She was so interested that I almost wanna get for her.But again,she had one tablet at home,an iphone,so I try not to spend unecessary.Anyway I can download more applications from the web for her.
Nevertheless,Im looking forward to prepare more teaching aids for Adelle and Ayden!:)
Ayden is now 6mths+,what we call it as half a year old.Yet Im planning his 1st Birthday party that comes in Aug.
All right,I will be doing his 1st party on his exact date,4th Aug 2012,Sat.Again,there will be a list of things to prepare now.
Had already liased with the online baker.(out of so many of bakers,finally chosen this)This baker which I had gotten is different from the previous two bakers which I had ordered for Adelle 1st n 2nd Birthday.
Heard quite a few good feedbacks about this baker,hope its good.
Next will be the venue of the party.For the past few events,had held at SAF resort,perhaps this time round,there should have a change of it.Still pending and waiting for the reply of those venues which I am looking at.
Now comes the decorations.Well,very likely I will be going back to the same store which I had gotten for Adelle 1st party.Had already know what I want,is just the purchasing part that comes maybe in May?
Most likely be getting my sister to do the scapbooking again for Ayden and some partt goodies for children who comes.
Did I missed any other thing?Well,till date I shall update more.:)
Ever since I started work,I couldn’t find the time to blog about the workplace,the working hrs etc
Im currently working at Sungei Kadut at a contracts n interior company.Therefore everyday like 850am,I have to be sure that I have to reach Yew Tee MRT and wait for the company bus.So this bus will send the staff to and fro the MRT n office.Even for lunch time too.
Working life there is all right,during the first few days,was kinda busy.Till date,everything seems much more settled down.
But Im resigning!!
The working environment is all right,just that the only two issues which I am currently encounting now was the pumping and it took up a few hours during my working time which I find it not so right no doubt the person Im reporting to,the HR manager is allright wih me doing so.Again,I find it pretty unfair to get other staff to cover my duty.
Plus the morning travel is too tiring for the two kids.Being so young,waking up as early as 6am to get ready and leave home for Woodlands(my mum place) and the traveling part is too tedious too.We had actually wanted to get a car if say after the confirmation,but then I still feel that I still need to stay home,taking care of the two children till they are much older,or rather wait till Ayden is totally off breastmilk.
So this decision was actually made my dear.He feels that its so tiring for the two children to travel with us like this everyday.Left home early in the morning and reach home late at night.Its not too healthy for growing children.So he decided that I should stay home and he feels better this way.
Seriously,since dear is supportive of me staying home,I should just carry on and put on hold for working .
So after 10th Mar,I will be back to sahm till a few mths later before going back to work again.
Ayden loves his taggy blanket just like Adelle who had been using this for comfort n made her sleep daily.
Adelle loves to color,cut n paste.This is a work of coloring(by herself),cut(with mummy’s help)and pasting(mostly by herself)
Tried to find the right time to do simple bonding time with the two children.Spending time in teaching,bonding is very important in the early years.Once its gone,never to find it back again.
So,I tried to spend at least 15mins every night with Adelle and 15mins with Adelle after bath n dinner.Be it to have a simple songs,lesson or play,its very important.
Its only when the weekends comes,then only do we have a little bit more time with the children.
But starting Mar,everything will be back to normal again.(shall elaborate more in the next entry)
Now Ayden loves this taggy blanket which We had gotten for him many months back.
Just like Adelle who needs to hug it to sleep everyday.
On the other hand,Adelle just loves to color.She was all excited when I show this template of a bear to her.Therefore she goes coloring,cutting and pasting and here comes the bear.Had kept the colored bear in a file,hopefully I can do a portfolio for her soon.
Mum’s Birthday!We celebrated her Birthday by giving her a treat to Paradise Inn located at City Square Mall outlet.
Before that,we had bought her a gift,a jade which she is hoping to have one after she brokes hers quite a while back.
Therefore she managed to find one of her liking and it cost $368 for one which was shared among the 3 sisters.
Im sure she is even more happier for her Birthday this year as Ayden is here to celebrate it with her too.
So we ended the day with the celebration together with my sister and sister in law,my cousin and boyfriend.Of course not fogetting myself,dear,Adelle and Ayden!
The preparation of Shanghai rice cake
The end product of Shanghai Rice cake which will blend in very well with sambal belachan.
Stir fry yong tau foo(sauce:soy bean sauce,oyster sauce)
Stir fry tomato pasta with minced meat
Stir fry veggies with oyster sauce
It’s all about happy call!Normally I used hcp for all the frying at home.It seems that all my pans are all stored in the cupboard,hardly put to use.
This amazing pan really makes “food wonder”..I had great fun preparing the meals with it.Even if my cooking skill is not up to the standard,with hcp,it makes my cooking tasted great!
These are some of the dishes I had prepared using hcp.I’m sure there will be more uploads coming.Stay tune people.:)
