Tonight is going to be the 2nd night we are going to be on our own without the daddy.Yes,its Daddy 4th day of reservist.

Well normally our bedtime routine is in such a way that by 9pm,Ayden will be latch on and Daddy will pat him in another room to sleep while I will give some lessons or play time with Adelle before the clock strikes 10pm whereby Adelle will get ready for bedtime after milk.And Ayden will be given bottle feed when Adelle gets into our Master bedroom and sleep.Thats when  I will accompany her to sleep while Daddy will do the feeding for Ayden,pat him and he will sleep too.This process takes about 20mins+-

But still he is on reservist I gonna do everything on my own.Gd thing for Adelle which I had told her before hand that she needs to lie down on her own which after I had finish feeding n pating Ayden,I will join her.Yes she listened.

In the mid of the night,I leave the grumpy son in his playpen while I rushed to make his milk.Last night was the very first time I had bottle feed him in the mid of the night as I had normally latched him.

Good thing I bottle feed him.He sleeps longer till this morning.I shall see if I can manage to do the same tonight,if not it shall be when the Daddy gets back home.

Ayden loves to give Adelle a hug each time I asked him to.And he goes hugging Adelle and pat gently at the back of her body.That’s him!

Adelle on the other hand loves to welcome that gentle hug and did the same as well!

The pic above shows it all when I get Ayden to give Adelle a little hug.Its interesting by looking at them.

Right,Im feeling the satisfaction when I see my children being able to achieve certain thing.

Like for Ayden,when I see how he will follow closely to what others did after observation.Yes!This morning when he sees how Adelle hold a small 2R size photo and put it on the photo frame,Ayden went over to take it away and “play” with it.So I went carrying him to the other side of the hall and guess what,the next thing he does was to crawl over to the TV console,hold on to the Tv console and walk towards the photo frame and placed this 2R photo on it!!!Yes he is observe but on the other hand Ayden is a hot tempered boy.Anything which he dont like or not happy with,he will fall back and lie down on the floor and cries for the longest time!
Perhaps not long from now Im going to introduce him with Time out.

Adelle,who is still as caring as ever.Thats the diff between a boy and a girl.Anything that was needed,she will be the one “running up and down” the whole house and get it for me.And she observe what others do and follow.For this,both kids share the same thing.

And my job is not only to cook for the family,do lesson with them,take care of them but also to teach them values!Thats my aim.

Our Art and Craft together!

I had always love to put them together and do Art and Craft together.

Seeing them work together is cute,is interesting,is a feeling that I cant describe at all.

Nevertheless,some time back,I gotten them to do free coloring using crayons.

Free coloring is good in a way that helps fine motor skill which they grip the crayon using their fingers.

Next I get them to do straw painting.Dip the colored paint with straw and color around the paper.Its an activity that interest them very much.Of course,I too had fun while getting them to do it.

We had shape tracing as well.Give them the shape of various animals and gotten them(Only for Adelle )to try tracing the shape out n color them.

Overall I had fun getting them to do these works together and created great bonding time too!

Domestic play fun!

image

What’s that?

image

We share our toys together.

image

Time to play at the domestic corner.

image

We share our toys together.

Loves to see the children at play,but sometimes it gets really annoying when Adelle shouted refusing to let Ayden to touch what she is doing.On the other hand,Ayden simply love disturbing Adelle on whats she is doing.
Thats kids isnt it?

Again,its pretty interesting seeing them playing together.It seems like Ayden understands Adelle so well that he points to her a certain thing or even pass her a toy and once Adelle holds it,he claps his hands.

I just love to see them standing together side by side at the kitchen cabinet,having to play together.It seems that they are preparing a dish together.

For this,I must capture a picture and show it to them when they are much older!:)

This is another dish of vegetarian as well.Stir fry onion with capsicums and eggs.

image

Steam fish with tomatoes,carrots,Asparagus with seasoning of lemon,shao xing wine,water(for soupy),light soy sauce.

image

image

I like this dish alot!Button mushroom with shitake mushroom added with a handful of spinach.

image

somehow,lady fingers go along with this chili sauce from Putien tasted great!

Fried tau kwa with tomato sauce.*yummy!*

I love these dishes!Sometimes I do repeat what I had cook previously and thats the reason why I seldom update new dishes.

Morever,if you were to realize,most of my dishes are on vegetarian.Thats because there are 3days on a weekdays we will be on full vegetarian.So what happen to Adelle when we take vegetarian?I will steam a small fish for her to go along with whatever veggie we had for that day.For Ayden,its even more easier,he will have his porridge as usual.

So stay tune for more updates on my cooking yea.:)

Their growing stages!

The sweeties of ours.

Our darlings!

Clap your hands!

Ayden follows Adelle in clapping his hands.

Time for fun!

Seriously,I had so many updates of my children that I would wan to blog about.They are way too cute!!

For Adelle
Right there are so many fantastic things about her and the way she speaks really made me had a great laugh.

Yesterday when daddy came home with a haircut,guess what did Adelle says?
Adelle:”Daddy,why cut hair until like that???!!!”(in a very adult tone!)
Both dear and myself was kinda surprised with how Adelle speaks.

Scenerio 2:
When I brought Adelle back from school two days back,upon stepping into the house,she smells food.
Adelle:Mummy cook what?
Mummy:Mummy cooks broccoli,mushroom;fish,for Adelle.
Adelle:很香

Senerio 3:
When Im busy feeding Ayden with his lunch,Adelle saw that the tissues box is empty on the coffee table,she will go to the storeroom and get a brand new box and replace the one in the hall.As such,each time we finish our meals,Adelle will get a piece of tissue paper for me,dear and lastly for herself.I swear I had never teach her this!

Scenerio 4:
Adelle had an Aunty actions.She loves to help me clean the Tv console,the sofa or any part of the house which is dirty.In fact,the way she carries her bag to sch was cute!She loves to show me that “wait” sign when she is coming out of the classroom when I fetch her.At times,when she has her soup to drink,she really drinks like an aunty.Spoon facing downward,hold the bowl and drink.

As for Ayden
The boy who can be quite timid yet bad tempered.For once,anything which he dont like,he will use his hand to hit the ground,or even lie back on the playmat.At such young age,he already know how to show his dislike??!!

At times,he is such a cutie!He will point to us anything that interest him.Of course,he is so playful that he loves to play with his sister pacifier.Crawl slowly to the pacifier,turn and look at Adelle before he holds it and put the pacifier into his mouth!

He loves to play catching with us.He knows when we are “chasing” after him,he will crawl and turn back looking at us to see if we are running after him.

I love the way he points us things and make that “hmm..aei…” sound.He is getting our attention this way.At such,he will try to hold on the item he wants and turn to point to us making that sweet sound.

My children growing stages!

Thats when Adelle starts baking cookies.Its high time Adelle gets to hands on with baking perhaps?

Yes,I love doing baking,art and craft when I teach my students last time and often finds that it does help the students to learn through play.So now I have my own children,I wanna them to go thru such teaching as well.As Adelle understands her surrounding very well from now,it can be such a waste without doing more n more hands on.

Nevertheless,she has so much fun baking with me the other day.She loves it.I had promised her that we shall bake again someday or make popcorns too.The smile on her is enough to make me feel that the busy day was worth while.
