Adelle is growing up to be more and more understanding. She can wait when told her to. She understand and obey to instructions most of the time.
Unlike the past when she was abt 3yrs old, when I told her to wait, very often she can’t do it. Now at 3.5yrs,she can do it very well.
Sometimes we see anything interesting and will laugh together just like friends.
There are so many nice things I had with Adelle. Except for a few times she might get quite stubborn and wants her way.
Our little Ayden is growing up. He shows me a sad face when get scolded, cries when I scolded him harshly. Son, you are a boy!
Ayden has a little girl character, he tends to cry very gently and softly when scolded. Aww, my little son is so timid and soft.
Boys are boys, always tend to be active than girls. He can climb up the stool and station himself there while waiting for me to come. He just wanna climb.
Looking at Ayden as in compared to other little boys, he seems more timid, soft and gentle, not as rough as I’ve seen in other boys… But then he is still young to judge.
The sisters that can chat anything under the sun.
The famous Bai Mee Fen
Ta dah, here comes the famous beehoon
Spicy kangkong and eggs.
This Nghor hiang is tasty.
Fried Chicken wings.
Yes, it’s my first trial on 白米粉, I’ve felt in love with it!
Just yesterday we have a mini family gathering at my sister place whom she stayed in Yishun. Both kids nap at her place till evening before we proceed to Bai Mi Fen.
While the children nap for nearly two hrs, we eat while chatting.
It had been so long since we have such mini gathering.
Nevertheless, the dishes are yummy. I’m so in love with it till I wish to go back again.
We’ll be back!
Sometimes just looking at the children, I felt that time really passes so fast that I could hardly catch up with their growing milestone.
As they grow older, I forcee more problems kicking in. Lately, both kids can play till they fight with each other. I Google for ideas on how to handle such problem. I’m not a believer in using cane and will never use it no doubt at times I will scold Adelle telling her a cane will comes in soon.
When we use a cane, it’s like we are showing violence to the children. They learn to beat others as well. Just like lately I hit Adelle gently when she hurts Ayden, she did the same thing to Ayden each time he makes her angry. This is one gd example of why I don’t fancy using cane or beat her unless there is not much of a choice.
So now, I’m trying to control not to hit her if she does anything to Ayden and see if this helps.
As for Ayden, he is still young to understand anything except telling him off with a much stern look.
Is another growing milestone.
Because of Adelle and Ayden, I choose being a sahm. The decision is often not easy but still I feel that the first few yrs in a child life is impt.
I want to accompany and educate them myself for these few yrs. I know in the future it gotta be harder for me to return to work force as many might not want to employ me. But will decide till then what I want the next level of my life to be.
For now, I enjoyed staying home, taking care of my children. I feel the achievement doing that.
The children are the reason of me being a sahm. I love them so! 🙂
Xmas celebration this yr is at my parents place . I could still remember that last yr we didn’t go for any gift exchange since Ayden is still quite young and was a bit hard to do so.
But tis year, Ayden is a toddler and he understand better that last yr. I bet he could understand even better next yr!
Nevertheless, we had a great time yesterday! Not forgetting how happy the children are when they received the presents.
They have a gift each from Daddy and all the 2 yiyis…
Is a joyous season!
Merry xmas 2012 to all my dear readers! Hope you will have a great fun in the celebration today.
Time flies and we are coming to the closure of the year 2012.
It seems like we had just celebrated xmas in 2011 when Ayden was barely a 5mths old infant, Adelle is just 29mths old toddler then.
This yr in 2012 when we celebrate xmas, Ayden is now a 16mths+ toddler while Adelle is a 41mths old Pre schooler. Time passes by so quickly that I find it kinda hard to catch up.
Next xmas, Adelle will be a 4.5ys old Pre schooler with Ayden a 2.5yrs Todd, things will be much more easier by then. No doubt I’m looking forward to their growing milestone but I will miss their infant, toddler, pre schooler stages.
But one thing for sure, I won’t be missing any of their growing milestone with myself staying home, growing and learning with them. That’s something which I’m already very glad of.
Merry xmas to all! 🙂
The two sliblings is so cute at times. Their little actions will make me laugh out loud.
But their little actions do make me mad as well.
Adelle and Ayden, both my precious never feel to make my day and am so thankful that I have them.
How would our life be without the children just like a few years back when we just gotten married without any children.
Things are so easy, eat, surf net, shop, or travel as and when we like. Now with children, priority comes to them first.
When comes to buying, will buy for the children before I think of myself. Comes to eating, I will make sure they are full before I eat.
Comes to traveling, I will make sure we will bring the children along and not to leave them behind while we go and enjoy. No doubt it’s gd to create the relationship between dear and myself, but we are creating bonding daily, and traveling with just the two of us can wait. That’s the reason why even if we gotta go for tour, the two children must come along I feel.
The saying that goes once you have your own children, you will think for them, think about them and not ourselves, that’s so true!
Daughter Adelle speaks so much like an adult that at times I can’t catch up with her!!
Well, she sounds like this ‘ Mummy you cannot lie down(tummy down), and see the hand phone.’ I’m speechless.
She says that because I’ve told her previously not to do this and now it’s her turn to ‘lectures’ me.
All right, preschooler follows what adult does very closely. So it’s always gd to set a good example to the kids so that they will follow and create a better habit.
