The girl who loves elmo so much!

Every week we make it a point to bring Adelle and Ayden to my mum place at least one week day.So that they will get used to the place and not feel strange to her house.Of course the daddy helps me to bring the two of them.

We left home early morning and by the time we reached home is around 8+ in the evening.

On weekdays,my mum does come and help out a few days in a week.As Adelle is not in the childcare so its kinda difficult for me to handle two of them at the same time.

Unless she is in cc,I dont need extra help while handling with just Ayden.

Time really flies and in a few says time,Ayden will be in his 8mths and I can prepare congee for him.

And thats going to make things easier as for lunch, I can prepare porridge for myself,Adelle and Ayden when my mum is not here.Im actually looking forward to the day where Ayden starts porridge.

To do matching game on the right item
(for Adelle n Ayden)

The multi vitamins which Adelle is taking.

The preparation doesnt come by easy.There is a lot of hard work in terms of researching for the info of teaching aids.

Althou its difficult,but Im very into doing so just because I enjoyed Early Childhood teaching!

So that was why my children enjoyed lesson time with me having these teaching aids!

Hopping that I can do more of these in the long run!

The spending on children.

image

Love to dress my sweeties up when there is any function coming up.

image

Adelle can”t get enough of ELMO.Im doing the right thing by giving her Elmo theme for her Birthday cake.

image

Ayden is so happy that he can have the full set of toys to himself while Adelle sleeps.

image

The package which Im waiting for and finally its here.Excited mummy and excited Adelle.She thought that its a present for her!

I have a question.How many will actually spend on your children?For me if I know Im able to,I will.

Why?Thats because when Im much younger,I dont get all these “benefits” in terms of good food,clothing,enrichment classes.Therefore very often,if our finance is fine,I will want to spend on my children.I know we are half way there because Adelle and Ayden gets to spend their infants and Adelle toddler years in the enrichment classes.Which I know will be very good in the long run.

I will give them new clothes to wear,no hand me down clothing.(the thing is,there is no one to pass down any clothes for them)Im willing to spend $$$ for their clothes and dress them up.Of course,now that Im not working,dear is very supportive for me to buy clothes for them.

Buying of good educational toys and teaching aids are very important.I dont believe in lousy toys as its not too lasting.

Seriously,I know that both children actually get some of the luxury which I dont in the past.

I hope it will stay this way and hopefully things will be even better when I go back to work again!

Adelle n Ayden Chew

So many pictures of them both!
Our lives are surrounded with just Adelle and Ayden.

They are our little pretty and little handsome.They are our proud in the family.

Im so thankful that God gaves us Adelle and now given Ayden to us.The more I look at them,the more I felt in love with.Not because they are my children thats why I said so.I do love my ex children when I teach and wish they are mine.Its the same feeling towards my own children.

Again Adelle is stepping into the stage where she wanna gain attention,made noise if she cant get what she wants.Im trying to talk senses into her.No doubt she dont understand now but Im sure she will in the long run.

As for Ayden,he is getting very cheeky lately.He screamed to anyone which he wants to “call”

He learned it from his cousin who was 2mths older than him by looking at how his cousin screamed the other day and the next time Ayden sees his cousin,he screamed at him.This happen not once but twice.

Like yesterday he screamed to Adelle a few times just to get her attention.This boy is really far too smart in it.

Daddy and Ayden(overdue pic)

We attended my cousin wedding on Sun,25th Mar.And these are 2 pics which we had taken over the dinner.More pics coming up in the next blog.

By the way,I had set my bloggie to privacy.So for friends who are able to read my blog will be those who are invited.Sorry,I gonna do this as I dont wanna “share” my life of what I had been doing to the public or even to friends which I dont feel like sharing.I know its bad,but its my life,so…

Anyway,I should be updating my journal as much as I can since its so much easier with uploading blog with handset.But then,I need to find time for bloging when both of them have their naps or when they sleep at night.I’ll try.*smile*

Growing up with the 2 kids

image

We are out to town with daddy n mummy

image

This look artistic!!On the day where we stay home on a weekends,we decided to bring them for a snack(is Adelle only),Ayden can now sit in the high chair while Adelle on the normal chair while we eat out.

image

Hello everyone!!

image

Adelle loves the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with her fave app,draw n color.

image

Ayden just loves to lift up his leg while sitting down on the high chair.

image

I suck and I drink!

image

Still trying to figure it out.

image

Looking at me??

image

Is nice!!

image

Im a happy boy!

image

Happy Adelle!

image

Looking at something I like?

image

If u are happy and u know it clap your hands!

image

Adelle loves to pose.

image

Another shot of her posing!

image

The way she eats while in deep thought!

Happy Adelle and happy Ayden!!Everyday,every moment with lots of happy photos going around home.

Now doubt lots of hard work going on daily but at the end of the day,the joy and happiness are there!

I cook,I teach and do housework,thats the reason for home stay.I am getting the hang out of it.But again,it wont be long eventually when they get older.

Especially when I start to see the bonding in them at times,I will feel that every hard work is worthwhile.
Im sure many will agree with what I say.

Is never easy taking care of two kids of 2yrs age gap at the same time for the whole day.I should have send Adelle to the childcare earlier but I didnt because I cant accept childcare yet if Im still able to take care of her myself.No doubt if I did,taking care of Ayden alone by myself will be so much easier.But,I still will take care of both myself till they are much older and in the care of my mum again.

Sneak preview for Ayden 1st Party

image

This was how the family had the meal when we are outside.

Sneak preview of one of the decoration for Ayden 1st Birthday Party.

In less than 4mths time,We will be celebrating Ayden’s 1st Birthday.Can you imagine that Ayden is with us for more than 7mths??Last year I had been waiting for him to turn 1yr old and now its just a few months when the occasion comes.

Last week when Im doing window shopping,I saw this wall deco and I told myself this that I shall get this as it blends in well for the color theme of the party!Pastel green and blue.

Im so excited because this year I will be designing the birthday theme for a boy instead of a girl which I had done 2yrs back.
I had more or less finalise what I had wanted and bingo it turns out pretty nice for pastel green and blue color theme which initially I had wanna choose pastel blue and white,but it doesnt seems to fit my Peter Rabbit theme,therefore I gave it a miss.Good thing I go for green and blue,it blended in so well after seeing my party deco and balloons and the rough idea of the birthday cake.Im more or less there!!

Sneak Preview of the Party:
Birthday cake-Peter Rabbit theme(choose this theme because Ayden is a baby bunny 2011)

Color theme-Pastel green and blue

Party deco-Cupcakes deco in pastel green and blue,balloons,Birthday Banner,table cloth

Goodies bags-Something special that need to customise.

Scapbooking-From newborn till 12mths

Venue-Changi/Jurong

1st year photoshoot-confirmed(8th Jul 2012)

Dress code:Smart casual in either blue or green.

Im more or less done up with the order and finalise everything.

Lesson planning for Adelle

image

image

image

image

image

Lately,I had been trying to teach Adelle based on themes.Yes,thats to introduce her say a theme on apple.

Well how can I do such theme?Let me share what I had done here.

Music:I sang her a song of “An apple a day”.It goes(an apple a day keeps the doctor awayX3,APPLE,apple!)

Art and Craft:Draw her two apples,gotten her to tear and paste(is a skill to learn how to tear)the red paper.

Game:Play the music of the apple song,gets the few of us(daddy,mummy and Adelle) to pass an apple around,once the music stop and whoever is holding the apple will need to pretend eating the apple,talk about the apple etc.

Activity:Do apple sorting.Meaning among the fruits that are mix together,get Adelle to find all the red apples and place it into the basket.

Story time:The story on apple.

Well,this is what I mean by theme for anything.Children learn faster when theme is introduce.Like for Apple theme,Adelle learns not only the color of an apple blindly but she learns how to play along by doing craft work,sing the apple song and even listen to the story and game.

This can be a week theme since I can spread the craft work say five types of crafts dealing with applw theme.To repeat the music and story everyday so as to reinforce what she had learn on Mon.

I just love to do all these with my children.So now cracking my head for more such activities.

No bumbo/bouncer soon?

Son smile wholeheartedly!At 7mths+,he is way too smiley.But this is the stage which I believed he will do so.

He plays,grab things very fast.He had a playing peer at home,Adelle.This is something good abt being a 2nd child.He has “full interaction”with another child which does help in a way.

Ayden sits longer when only there are any activities for him.And it must be only on the high chair!

He started to reject the bouncer and bumbo by trying to lift himself up.Totally different from Adelle whom she can lie down on the bouncer for long till she was 2yrs.(this allows me to leave her to watch the bb prog)

Perhaps I have to think of a way to make him lie down while I do my work then.
It’s going to be very challenging!!

Capturing every part of their growing milestone makes me feel the joy.

My babies are no longer a baby,they had grown taller and older months after months.

In fact I started to miss their early stage as a newborn.Now I can only try my very best to coach them into someone useful in life,always have a gentle heart to others.

Adelle and Ayden can be easy to educate.I can tell that,they belong to almost the same time of characteristic.

Still need to see how both of them goes come the near future.As parent,I would want the best for my children,to provide them the best if I can.That’s parenthood.
