Away from home.........

*mummy's rumblings*

I used to think I meant the whole world to my baby boy.....
And I thought he could not live one night away from me.....
I was totally WRONG!!

The whole jing gang came over to spring us a surprise visit....
Which include, 
1) My third sister-in-law Peggy. her hubby,
 and her 3 kids Joey, Rachel, and Christine
2) My second sister-in-law Linda,
this was like special guest appearance, 
as she came all the way from Ipoh!!
3) Niece Alice, her hubby, and her 3 kids, 
Andrew , Heng Heng, and Thomas....

Hiroshi usually have hell lotsa fun when they visit!!
And, he would also be very disappointed and upset when they leave...

so let's cut the long grandmama story short.....
It was time for them to go.....
A very comical Hiroshi quickly ran to this room 
to get his shirt and pants,
came out and shouted SHIRT!! SHIRT!!
When he realised that no was helping his with his shirt,
He quickly grab his trolley school bag, ran to the gate,
and shouted SHOE!! SHOE!!
No one was helping him with his shoes either.....
We were all busy giggling at him....

I urge my third sister-in law Peggy 
to bring him back to JB with them....
Her 3 daughters were over the moon upon hearing that....
Unfortunately, She did not want to run the risk 
of having a toddler, with inconsolable crying at bedtime 
looking for his mummy!!
So, I shut the gates and wave good bye to them....
Hiroshi turned pouted and refused to say his good byes....
The more they said good bye to him....
The more tears I see swelling up in his eyes!!

Then my second-in-law Linda came back for him.....
You could see the instant change in his mood and reactions....
He changed into his shirt and pant with no complains...
I packed his Elmo trolley bag,
with milk powder, bottles, water bottle, 
diapers, clothes and his security balnkie....
He pulled his trolley bag and shouted SHOE!! SHOE!!
So we helped him with his shoes and OFF he goes....
Saying good byes to ME
and throwing KISSES to ME!!

So I thought to myself, maybe he will fuss 
when he notice that I am not there to put him in bed.

The worried mum constant sms 
to Alice to find out how his little baby was coping?!?
Only to be replied, 

So..... My little baby boy is not such a "baby" after all huh?!?

Oh well.... Maybe kids can really accomplish 
much much more than we expect of them,

so maybe as parents we should put the stigma of,
"nah, he can't do it!"
"He's too young for it"
behind us.
and start BELIEVING and TRUSTING our kids abilities....

Thus, giving them INDEPENDENCE.....

Ang Mo Christmas Dinner @ Sha Villa

*mummy's rumbling*
I couldn't remember when was the last time
I had formal ANG MO sit down dinner.
It is either the the "disease" call FORGETFULNESS
I got from 2 pregnancies,
OR it has really been a LONG LONG TIME!!

Sitting down in the restaurant at Sha Villa,
Only 2 thoughts came to my mind....
1. How beautiful!! This was the place
Kitson and myself were pronounced husband and wife!!
Many great memories flooded in.....
2. Wah!! So many forks, spoons, and knife.....
What is for what liao arr?!?!? *panic*

Nevertheless, dinner went on "romantically"
with two kids beaming BRIGHTLY as
Candle Lights?!? or maybe Light Bulbs.

soup: califlower with spinich

Main: Seabass with Sweet Potato

Main: Turkey Breast

Desert: Can't remember the FANCY NAME!!

Happy 6th Months old Sophia mei mei.....

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Happy 6th months Sophia mei mei....
This day marks a very important day in mummy's life.
she has successfully breastfed mei mei for 6 months.....

*Mummy's Rambling*
Breast milk used to nourish babies all around the world for many centuries,
BUT, with the introduction of formula milk in more developed countries,
we were constantly challenged on our beliefs that Breast is BEST.
With formula milk companies competing with one another
to get as close as breast milk,
adding SA, AA, ARA, DHA, Immunofortis, Choline.....
and the list goes on.....
and on...
and on...
Unfortunately, NONE of them could produce BREAST MILK!!
NOT even anywhere close to it!!

so, what's the biggy about BREAST MILK!!
You might want to read and decide for yourselves:
(click on the following link)

so..... Now that I have convinced you that BREAST is BEST....

These are some very good webbies and forums I frequent:
LLL(La Leche League): This is an amazing forum!!
All these people talk about everyday is practically just BREAST FEEDING!!
SingaporeMotherhood: Another forum....
Mainly A-Z about motherhood...
Breast Feeding buddies that has supported me mentally!!
KellyMom: Great information about Breast Feeding.
Dr Jack Newman: This has to be the BEST pediatrician....
He advocates Breast Feeding!!
And, his videos are so comprehensive!!
Die, die MUST WATCH!!

Journey on Breast Feeding:
1. Eat lotsa papaya when you are pregnant.
(weather it is a scam or not..... I never did find out....
BUT, I had abandance of breast milk even through pregnancy....
so, no harm trying right!!
Anyway, fruits is good for pregant women who always run the risk of constipation
2. Green Papaya Threadfin Soup
soup with a comnination of Green Papaya, Threadfin fish, dried octopus,
ginger, sesame oil, and peanuts.
I have this throughout pregnancy and coinfinement....
Instant milk booster!!
3. Sashimi
oh well, a reason to indulge!!
Great for milk supply and plenty of DHA!!
4. 1st 6 weeks: TOTAL LATCH ON
NO bottles, NO pacifier!!
Latch baby whenever neccssary.
6. Good Eletrical BREAST PUMP
If you are returning to work, a eletrical breast pump might be ideal....
We don't want to be slaves to breast pumps that take forver to pump or assemble!!
Medela Pump in Style is a good investment!
