Happy 44 mths old to baby Si and happy 22 mths old to baby Skye!!!
(previous month's post <~ if u missed it!)

Here's our monthly family tradition of taking Polaroid pics.

Hopefully baby Si n baby skye pics will cheer up ur day!!!
It did cheer us up when snapping these pics... :)

Milestones reached:

Skyler~
.ditched his high chair (it's been a few months now but this mommy forgot to jot down). Now the high chair is sitting in the corner collecting dust turning into a white elephant...Time to bless it away!!!
Baby Skye insists to sit on my lap during meal times n sometimes will eat my spicy sauce, chili sauce, curry, etc! He does love spicy stuff just like his mommy... his tolerance to spiciness is higher than his jie jie...

.finally broke the 10kg mark... he's at 10.4kg now ... this momma is a happy momma...

.he's a gentleman!!! Knows to make sure he pulls down my shirt after he's done with his mummy's (.)(.) milk

.2 more teeth sprouting out (making it a total of 12!!!)

Sienna~
.able to fix up her first jigsaw puzzle on her own (the puzzle being her fav FROZEN princess Anna n Elsa did helped) !!! She surprised us one day as she went into the room n asked daddy to opened up one of her unopened gifts...n then continued to fix it on her own... it was her first puzzle she has ever played!!!

.able to recognize numbers in Chinese characters!!! Wowwww... this mummy got a shocked when I so happened to peep into her playgroup and saw her yelling out the numbers in Chinese as the teacher flashes the cards (and mind you, as I paid closer attention, it wasn't even in sequence!!!) she was the only one who could do it...***proud momma moment*** I wonder what else is she learning in school that I am not aware of*** sienna would have to teach her "banana" mummy how to speak, read n soon write Mandarin!!!

Skye n Si ~
.able to do yoga? Downward dog pose! Something that this momma can never be able to master... #downwarddogpose ... not sure where #siennaskyler got this gene from!!! Not from daddy @karthik_naga either 

.met lots of famous local celebrities especially from their favourite shows such as tanglin and lion moms!!! Bloggers such as xiaxue and qiuqiu!!! And Alaric from the noose...


.met Mickey, Minnie, Donald duck, Alvin n the chipmunks for the first time... baby Skye still has a phobia of big size things, statues, etc!

.went to their first circus... not the normal kiddy kind of circus but the extraordinaire TOTEM cirque du soleil!!! How fortunate are they...n they thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it...they sat on their seats the ENTIRE TIME ... over time, I have noticed that my kids super love any kind of show performances!!!

---> Baby Si was POTTY TRAINED by then!!! Gessshhh, baby Skye is no where near ready as he can't verbally communicate nor indicate that he needs to do his business!!! ***sweats*** 
But this time it's different, we are in no hurry!!! Last time we had to do it as we were prepping for the arrival of baby KarMie no2 = baby Skye... to make things easier...

Vinotha

2 years ago, I introduced you to our "4 babies"!!!

Here's an update on our "2nd eldest baby"...Written by Mr. Hubby on his facebook post (this was the reason why Mr. Hubby couldn't join us on our trip to Busan, S.Korea
Apart from attending his cousin's wedding of course)

******************************************
"At the end of 2005 I met Jamie, and in 2006 we decided to sponsor together a 4 year old girl in a very remote village in India, our first meaningful "project" together as a couple. For the past 10 years we exchanged letters and photos and she told us how what she bought/did with our monthly payments.

Today I was able to meet Vinotha, now a 14 year old exceptionally warm and pleasant teen, thats doing well in school and an excellent drawing artist and a guitar player to-be. So blessed to be able to see her home and talk to her and just be in her presence.

Definitely something i would love for @jamiechaw to experience, even though it's challenging to get there.

Thanks to Compassion for this opportunity, they are honestly doing great works globally, I can personally vouch for that now!"

******************************************
Am glad Mr. Hubby got this opportunity to meet Vinotha and her family and witness the "fruits of our labour" + God's amazing hand on her family!

We can all play a small part in transforming lives... just say YES today and make it happen!!! Their future is literally in our hands...(We have witness it 1st hand)

Here's a short clip of Mr. Hubby's first hand experience seeing a toilet built for Vinotha's family (shall we complain about our "thrones" that we sit at home???): https://youtu.be/wb50m4QGIfk

.said his 1st word "na na" for both bananas n Sienna!!! Mummy went out on a mother-son date with aunty Elly, n when we came back, baby Skye shouted "na na" loud n clear n pointed to jie jie!
.said his 2nd word "mama" n points to his momma...  on the same day as his 1st word!!! ***yipee!!! This momma is on cloud 9*** took him much longer than most babies especially compared to his jie jie (who's already talking in full sentences at his age), but sooner or later, he will be talking non stop that this momma has to shushhh him up!

Sienna~
.1st time losing her beloved items - toy phone n her princess Elsa n Anna sling bag that she brings along everywhere!!!
She Left her bag + toy phone at the toy coin machine... N it was gone just right after we left.
She cried n begged mummy to find it. So we went back twice to the toy machines n to the information counter to report lost n found... ***oh well, it taught her a lesson***
.starting to skip her naps every now n then. ***This mummy surrender #pickmybattleswisely!!!*** as long as she doesn't disturb di di Skyler nap!

.first time "cooking" with mummy where she assisted mummy in baking her 1st brownies! I still remember as a kid, my fav part was to lick all the yummy leftover cake mix in the bowl, cutlery, mixer, etc..so bring her first time, I had her lick once n this mummy locked the rest "secretly" in hiding!
***note Baby Skye is holding his fav "phone" (lost now)***
.doing the "duck face" when posing for the camera! America/Malaysia/Singapore next baby model perhaps???

I want to be part of #NUFFNANGBLOGCON at Hotel Jen Tanglin

Dear NuffNang,

I started this blog when my 1st child was born to share the joys and stories to both sets of her grandparents who are not in Singapore. Then my 2nd child was born. Because I love my kids so much, I started joting down every single thing on my blog, snapping every single pictures of them, cooking n baking all sorts of kid friendly meals, attended many many kids activities and events, etc... all because of them! I am learning from them every single day about my parenthood  journey as well as learning about blogging. Along the way, I have made lots of friends all in the name of my kids n blogging!!!
I never knew I would enjoy all the kids events as well, but I get to relive my childhood memories through them. Seeing them smile just makes me a HAPPY momma!!!

I would love to attend this amazing 1st ever nuffnang blogger conference because.... who am I kidding? I'm just a stay at home mom who started this blog with zero knowledge but slowly and gradually have learnt the ropes through my own experiences n mistakes! Would love to attend this so I can learn from the EXPERTS themselves and what more, its being organized by the most amazing n best blogger company NUFFNANG!!!

Xoxo,
From an eager learner,
Stay-at-home-mom-of-2-babies blogger!
