A Day In The Life of A Working Mom

I've been thinking for a while to make something like "A Week in The Life", but I'm not sure whether I can do it. It does seem like a lot of work, and at the moment I feel like I'm really BUSY enough.

So well, today as I'm surfing the net, I read some entries about A Day In The Life of A Working Mom, and it's kinda inspire me a bit! So here it goes.. My day on a normal Tuesday. No photos, though. I haven't taken any photos today!


7:50 am
Pi woke up first (at 7:30am) and took a shower. When he's done, he woke me up for my shower. Kinda surprised that Caitlyn is still sound asleep at this point. She would normally wake up at 7:30am. Maybe she's very tired as she slept quite late last night (close to 11 pm!!) and we just returned from a short trip to Jakarta yesterday.

8:05 am
I finished my shower, and as I opened the bathroom door, Caitlyn was awake! (We really need to do something about that door. It is very noisy when we open or close it!) As usual, Caitlyn is the happiest just after she wakes up from her night sleep. She looked at me happily and smiled soooo sweetly. However when I'm away from her for a few more centimetres (I need to comb my hair and put on some moisturizers etc), she cried and looked at me anxiously, afraid that I will leave her. Luckily Daddy come to the rescue! He played with her while I'm finishing my morning beauty regimen.

8:15 am
I had my breakfast. Today's breakfast menu was chicken steak, it was quite nice. Meanwhile, Vio has just finished his shower and getting ready to go to school. Today is his first school day after a one month holiday. He refused to put on his socks, but after sometime, he's finally ready and go to school with Nai2. I kissed him before he went off. Today he brought "Spiku" cake that we brought from Jakarta as his snacks to eat at school. His school actually provided some snacks for the students, but the teacher mentioned that sometimes Vio refused to eat and will just sit there while other kids are eating.

8:30 am
Time to go to work! I waved and kissed bye-bye to Caitlyn, and surprisingly she didn't cry at all, and even didn't ask me to carry her! (She would normally do that every time I wave bye bye). Apparently she's going for a shower, and yes she loves bath time very much, so that explains why she didn't want me to carry her. I took MRT to Caldecott MRT (changing at Buona Vista), and checked my emails along the way. I'm really wondering why didn't I get smart phone sooner?? To think that I'm getting it only recently! Yeah I'm always one step behind when it comes to technology.. LOL..

9:30 am
Reach office! I switched on my laptop, washed my water bottle and took some warm water. There's nothing much for me to do in office, so I spent the whole morning surfing net and downloading digital scrapbook files.

12:00 pm
It's lunch time! I went to the Market, planning to eat my favorite sliced fish soup with ee mee. But today the queue was very long, so I ended up eating Mini Pot Noodle, which was also not bad. After that we had Belgian Waffle with Rum 'n Raisin ice cream in Creamery. It was deeeeellliiiicciiiiooussss... I think that they have the best belgian waffle in town! After ice cream, we went to a nearby mama shop to buy some baskets. I'm in the midst of organizing my ever-growing scrapbook supplies that are VERY messy now. I'm really hoping that I have a bigger space to store my items and to do my crafts! All I have is this small table (which top is already half-occupied by my papers), a small cupboard under the table that contains our photo albums, as well as scrapbook albums, etc, and a drawer to contain all my other stuffs. Now I also hang my items on the wall so that it's easier for me to get things that I'm looking for. When horizontal is not possible, go vertical! LOL!

1:30 pm
Back to the office again, and still surfing net and chat with a friend. This is the time when I read the entries about "A Day in The Life of A Working Mom", and I'm kinda inspired to write about today! So here I am now, typing all these at 4:50 pm.

7:00 pm
Reached home, and greeted with the sweetest smile of Caitlyn and hopeful face of Vio, saying "Something?" He always hopes that I bring him a little something from office, and if I did, he would be sooooooo happy. But on this particular day, I didn't get him anything. The two kiddos were having dinner (in front of TV), so I took a bath, then play with them for a while, then have dinner with pi. And followed by playing with them again until around 9 pm

9:20 pm
The 2 of them slept fairly fast today! Since both of them has slept, I'm free to do my hobby! Lately I'm into organizing my supplies and coloring stamped images, so I did just that.

10:15 pm
Pi and I watched How I Met Your Mother (Season 7). It's our favorite show of the moment! We watched 2 episodes. I think it's wishful thinking if we plan to watch only 1 episodes. It's confirmed that we will watch at least 2 episodes. The serial is just so funny and fun to watch. And it's only 20 mins each!

11:00 pm
We're feeling rather tired today (maybe coz it's the first day of work), so we went to bed early.

Scrapbook Layouts for My Niece and Nephew ^^

It's been a looooooooong while since I posted my scrapbook layouts here... Well, partly because nowadays I do more of digital scrapbooking, and when I'm doing paper scrapbook, normally I would be too lazy to take photo of it.. Haha..

Anyway, these are 2 layouts.. 1 for my niece and 1 for my nephew.. Specially ordered by my sister, who wants a layout that she only need to paste the photos on, and framed it.

I cut the names using Silhouette machine, and I quite like how the overall layouts looks ;)  Forgive the dark and unprofessional photo.. These are taken and cropped using my handphone.. :p

In Love with Coloring (Prismacolor and Sansodor)

I'm simply in love with coloring (and stamps) right now!

I recently bought a set of prismacolor pencils (after my previous Luna watercolor pencils set being completely destroyed and thrown around by my 2 angels). I had read that this seems to be the best color pencil around. They're not cheap, though. But I don't regret this purchase for even a little bit now!

The first time I'm coloring (and blending with sansodor and paper stumps), somehow the result didn't turn out to be nice. I had some difficulty on the blending part. Though I had made sure that the stumps are wet with sansodor, the color didn't seem to blend nicely. What have I done wrong? Or did the ebay seller I bought the pencil from sell the fake prismacolor? :p

Hours of reading online tutorial later, I went home and try coloring with the new "knowledge" that I've gained from the online tutorials. And voila! I can color it nicely! Well, at least I think that it looks nice (with gradient colors and all).

Not too bad for a beginner ya? I quite like the "shades" of the bear. I used 3 different shades of the pencil.

And here's one more:

I kinda think that the cat is such a cutie (after I color it)... Ooooooo.. I'm just soooooooo happy now that I can color (quite) nicely.. Haha...

Some tips for successful coloring:
  1. Color one area first and blend with sansodor. Once done, add a darker shade, and blend again with sansodor. And after that, add yet another darker shade and blend again (in circular motion, pushing towards the center). It is recommended to use 3 shades for each color
  2. While blending, do it at an angle. So you're blending with the sides of the stumps instead of the pointy tip of the stumps. This was my previous mistake! I thought that I should use the tip of the stumps! Once I use the sides of the stumps, the blending works like magic!

Vrooom.. Present-Shaped Card

Another card made for Vio's ex-class mates in Apple Tree, whose birthday is today! (Vio is invited to his house. Seems like lately Vio likes to go to his house to play).

Please pardon the blurry photos. It was taken using my handphone in the wee hours of the night, when all are asleep!

The card is made with my beloved Silhouette machine. And of course.... washi tapes! Haha.. Do you see the cars tape used? I'm in love love love with it!

A card for sweet baby boy

Just to share a card recently made for sweet baby Collin that just arrives at the world! We went to visit him over the weekend.

The card was made using my Silhouette machine (which I still love very much, but still wishing that it's a cameo instead. It will be perfect if it can cut 12" paper so that I don't need to trim all the papers down to fit! I feel that all the trimmed papers are kinda "wasted"..)

Anyway... the card was supposed to be a moon-shaped card... Does it look like a moon?? Haha I surely hope so! I got the inspiration from my new book: "Card Sketches for Paper Crafters" (that I got at Paper Market at 50% off! Yippyyy!) and I just love love love that book! I won't be running out of idea soon! ;)  And of course, the card is covered with washi-tapes. With recent "craziness" of washi tapes (which resulted in rolls and rolls and rolls of tapes I have now), I better find a way to use them!

Project Life: June 2012 (Week 2)

Some pages for week 2 of June 2012

This week, we went to Gymboree Harbour Front (again), for a free class that we got from Ben's birthday party. Vio was suuuuuuuper excited about it, and the teacher mentioned that he was really good (as in really happy in the class). Caitlyn was quite alright (she doesn't understand much yet), but she really enjoyed the bubbles and parachute part.

This week is also SUPER HOT week... And one fine day, it was raining, and just so happen that Savio & Caitlyn had a looooong afternoon nap. So soon after they woke up from their nap, we brought them for a walk in Jurong Lake Park (just a stroll). They enjoyed it a lot, especially since we let them picked up the things from the grounds (fallen leaves, etc). And they just looked soooo cute when they hold hands together!

I have a few of these cute headbands (for phototaking purposes, of course). Don't know why, I just LOVE these kind of things.. haha.. And seems like Caitlyn quite like them too (especially the turtle, she asked me to put it on her again and again and again..)  But of course, they only lasted a few seconds on her head.. :p

Project Life: June 2012 (First Week)

First week of June is here!

The hot favorite at home now is the ball tent. But unfortunately, they play it the unconventional way..

The just LOVE to turn it outside down, sit and JUMP on top of it. Sigh.... The ball tent's days are numbered.. Now it can't stand straight anymore... When it stands, it will be slanted to one side.. wahaha.. Well, at least it's better than it being a white elephant ya? ;)

20 questions by Savio (3.5 years old)

Yesterday I came across an interesting project done by someone: to ask your child the same 20 questions each year on their birthday (starting from 3 years old), and make an album out of it. It would be real fun to see how the answers changes through the years. Isn't it such a brilliant idea?? Why didn't I think of it sooner??

And now Vio is already 3 years and 5 months... Well, better late than never yeah? So I decided to ask the questions that I've compiled to a 3.5 years Vio, and I will ask him again on his 4th, 5th, etc birthday. And yes the answers are fun! Here are his answers to the questions last night:

1. What is your favorite color? purple (quite surprising.. I thought he'd say blue)
2. What is your favorite toy? cars
3. What is your favorite fruit? orange
4. What is your favorite tv show? racing cars
5. What is your favorite movie? cars
6. Who is your favorite (cartoon) character? black car (true enough, he's not really idolizing any of the cartoon character. He only love cars)
7. What is your favorite thing to wear? pajamas (yeah, right! pajamas is the one thing he HATE the most)
8. What is your favorite animal? dinosaur (hm that's interesting.. he never mentioned he likes dinosaurs before)
9. What is your favorite song? twinkle twinkle
10. What is your favorite book? racing car
11. Who is your favorite person? mommy and daddy (awwwwww...)
12. Who is your best friend? Neyla (she is his bestfriend in Apple Tree)
13. What is your favorite food? cheese and tofu
14. What is your favorite snack? chocolate and pudding
15. What is your favorite drink? milo and orange juice
16. What is your favorite game? dinosaur and racing car (amazingly dinosaur is being mentioned again here!)
17. What is your favorite thing to do? play
18. What is your favorite thing to play outside? racing car
19. What do you sleep with at night? hippo
20. What do you want to be when you grow up? Daddy! (awww.. so sweet!)

Now I'm hunting for an album to record this, and I think I just found the perfect one! It's Simple Stories 6x8 mix and match album! I hope I can get my hand to 2 of those (1 for Vio, and 1 for Caitlyn)...

Project Life: May 2012

It's been a while since I last uploaded my Project Life pages! Yes I've done the pages for all the photos until today! Yay! It feels really good to be NOT behind.. hahaa..

Here are the pages for the month of May... Some highlights:
  1. We went to Gymboree for Ben's 3rd Birthday Party, and the 2 kids JUST LOVE IT A LOT
  2. We bought Ball Pit and its Tunnel for Vio and Caitlyn. So yes, our house is getting kinda smaller and smaller!
  3. We went to Chinese Garden on 1 weekend
  4. Well, the other photos are mostly some snapshots of our daily lives ;)

Parent Teacher Meeting

I'm just back from my first parent-teacher meeting for Savio!

So when we reach there, we took queue no.. My queue no was 6. I had to wait for quite a while as the teacher (Mrs Ravin) took quite a while to talk to each parent.

And as expected, her feedback was: Savio was so shy and soft-spoken.. He hardly talk, and even if he answers, it will be very soft. Soooo different from Savio at home. She was so surprised when I told her that Savio was jumping and climbing around, and always screaming at home.

She also mentioned that Savio likes to play. So when they ask him to do coloring, he'll do it quick quick so he can quickly finish and go back to play. And that he often fall down while doing activities in the school..... Also he need to practise more on writing...

And when someone snatched toys from him, he will just keep quiet and sit down, doesn't report it to teacher and he doesn't know how to say no... Sigh... I'm thinking how to encourage him to not feel shy and dare to speak up (just like what he always do at home)...

MMRV Vaccine and Legs Problem?

My poor little Caitlyn is now sick! :(

We brought her to have her MMRV and Pneumococcal injections last last Saturday... and last Friday, she had a slight fever (38 degrees), so I gave her Paracetamol before she sleeps. Luckily, the next day she was alright and as cheerful as usual, though a little bit low appetite. So we still brought her to a birthday party (I will tell you about this in another post)

Anyway, yesterday (Monday), in the morning she was quite alright, still low apetite but she can walk around, jump jump jump, etc like normal. Suddenly after waking up from her afternoon nap, she started limping, and afterwards, started crying whenever she wanted to use her right legs! It's like it's very very painful for her :(  So in the end we carry her around as she didn't wanna walk or move much....

I called the PD and asked whether it's related to the MMRV that she took a week earlier, but he said no... Though some from the internet had exactly same problem after their babies took MMRV vaccine..

And though she had a nap for quite long, she still went to bed early yesterday (whereas normally, it would be a more than 1 hour battle to bring her to sleep at night). And the poor little girl normally loves to sleep sideways, and she CAN'T lift her legs to change position to sideways! So she cried the whole night (maybe every 30 mins or so) coz she can't move her legs.. sigh.........

We were thinking to bring her to PD today, but miraculously after she woke up from her night sleep, she walks normally again! And can even walk fast like normal. Hmmmmm... I hope the problem won't come again..

Handmade Cards

I think I'm now kinda overloaded with creative juice. Blame it to Made With Love (my LSS here). They're having this moving out sale, and I just wanna see how it was. And I saw the Scrapbooks magazines were on sale for only $5 each (originally is $10++ each). Now I've never bought a scrapbook magazines before, so I thought it would be nice to have one.

... Unfortunately I can't choose ONLY one, but FOUR.. Haha! They're all so nice, how can I choose? :p  Anyway they're heavily discounted so I'm quite happy with my purchase.

So.. The scrapbook magazines have LOADS of real nice cards... And when I saw the cards, I really feel like making one!! So here's the result:

This one is for a boy who's having a 3rd birthday party tomorrow:

And this one is... well, I dunno what is it for yet, actually.. So I printed a general message on the front of the card, so it can be used for any occassion. Isn't this card cute? It can rotate to reveal a hidden message! I got the idea from the "Scrapbooks, etc" magazine of course... Gosh, it's apparently so nice to have a magazine on hand, why didn't I have it earlier? Haha..

My Photobooks are Here!

Finally! The moment I've been waiting for! My first-ever photobook (that was meant for me) are here! - actually make it two as they arrived almost at the same time.. Only 1 day different!

I ordered them from Artscow, and I must really say that though the price is really cheap, the quality is good! I LOVE THEM!!

The first one is for Caitlyn's First Birthday Party & Celebration.. It's an 8"x8". I think I paid only about $15 SGD for it? Here it is:

Not bad ya? Well, at least I'm quite satisfied with it! The above photobook was designed by me (each and every page of it!

And here's the other one.. it's a 6"x6" photobook, which I only paid about $8 - $10 SGD? So cheap! This is for our last year's "holiday" to Sentosa! Haha.. It's a project that I've been delaying and delaying since I don't have time to do it! I have planned to make a mini album for it, and I have even bought the papers, embellishments and all that. Then I figured that making photobooks would be much easier and MUCH faster. And well, they look pretty nice too :D For this one, I finished it in 1 day (coz I'm using the ready-made template provided by ArtsCow). Wow, can you believe it? 1 day to complete the whole album! If I were to make the traditional scrapbook, it might take me 1 month to complete :p

Recipes: Cakes

Sometimes, I'm reaaaaallly wondering if something is actually wrong with me.. I should be busy enough, but yet, I feel like I'm constantly looking for things to make me even BUSIER! :p  The newest one is: I decided to compile all the recipes that I have into 4x6 recipe cards and arrange them in an albums! So that everytime I wanna look for recipe, I don't need to search in google again, or trying to find "where's that old recipe.."  And of course, I love things that look pretty!

It's not like I often cook, or bake cakes.. But well, I think I'm just an organization-freak! Haha!

Some of these recipes would be in Indonesian language as they're hand-me-downs. But if you're really interested, please let me know and I'll try to translate it for you! :)

To start things off, here's my mom's cupcake recipes.. Have I told you that my mom bakes veeeeeeery nice cake? :D  Ok these are not the regular cupcakes (with fancy topping and all that).. These are more of the soft cupcakes (not hard type). It doesn't look as pretty as the cupcakes nowadays, but trust me, these tastes nicer.

And here's my favorite Strawberry Jellyhearts recipe that I post about sometime back. Enjoy! :)

14 May 2012

We Love Jellyhearts!

Over the weekend, I suddenly felt like making something. Sooo... I decided to make Strawberry Jellyhearts again! (This is the second time I'm making it). It's reaaaaaaaaaalllyyyyy nice and easy to make! Everyone loved it to bits (especially Vio who can't seem to stop eating it)..

Ok if you wanna make one, this is the recipe that I found on the internet (and slightly modified)


110g digestive biscuits(about 8 pieces), chopped into fine crumbs
40g melted butter

250g cream cheese, soften at room temperature
50g icing sugar
1 tablespoon gelatin powder
1/2 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

1 box Jelly crystal (strawberry flavour) - I used Tortilla
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water

Some strawberries, cut into heart shapes

1. Mix biscuit crumbs & melted butter together and press firmly with the help of a spoon onto the base of a 18cm cake tin. Chill for 30 minutes.

2. Place gelatin powder and boiling water in a bowl. Heat a pot filled with some water until just simmering and place the bowl inside the pot. Dissolve gelatin and boiling water in the bowl. Keep warm.

3. With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese , icing sugar until smooth & creamy. Blend in gelatin solution and vanilla essence and mix well.

4. Using a fork, prick holes all over the biscuit base. Pour the cheese mixture into the cake tin. Layer the strawberries on the cheese mixture. Chill for at least 3 to 4 hours.

5. Dissolve the jelly crystal in the cup of boiling water, followed by the cold water. Pour the jelly on the cheese mixture, just enough to cover the strawberries. Put in fridge. Let it set before removing from the cake tin.

Project Life - April & May 2012

Yayyy... I'm finally NOT behind!! I have completed all the photos until present day.. Here they are! 1 page for the last week of April, and the rest are for May...

Oh wow.. It's only the first week of May and I already have 3 pages! Hoho..
It would be 1+ more month before I start to send these images to print as a photobook! (For this year, I plan to have 2 photobooks: 1 for first half, and 1 for second half of 2012)... Good plan, huh? Hope all will go well according to the plan! :)

10 May 2012

My First Photobook!

A few days back I received a nice surprise..

It was my first ever photobook! Ok it's not actually for me.. I printed it to give to a friend of mine who has just given birth to a sweet baby boy. Well, the plan is for her to paste her baby's photos (month by month), and some notes about that month. So I designed the digital pages and print it as a photobook. I hope it would work out well!

Back to the photobook.. It was NICE.. I'm so happy to see my work gets printed and binded. It feels like... well, it feels like I've been published! LOL..I got it printed at http://www.artscow.com/. I'm sooooo happy that I found this website by chance. They offer free photobooks (and other photo items) for new members, we only need to pay for the shipping. At first I was skeptical about the quality, but once I received the photobook, I must say I'm 100% happy! Heeeee...

Can you imagine when I first sign up with this ArtsCow, I went all crazy with the freebies that they're offering! I felt like I want to order ALL of them! But luckily, my senses stop me. What would I DO with SO many things that I don't actually need?? Haha.. But of course I still order few items from them. So far, what I've ordered from them are:
  • Photobook for a friend who's just given birth
  • Photobook for Caitlyn's 1st Birthday
  • Photobook for our Sentosa Staycation last year
  • A watch (with self-designed face)
  • 2 cosmetic bags (1 for me, and 1 as a birthday present for another friend)
  • 3 scrapbook layouts for display
Oh my, that's quite a long list for a short period of time, yeah?? Well, so far I've only received the first item. I can't wait to see the other items!! I hope they would look nice too.

I will upload photos of my 1st ever photobook later, as it's in my handphone ;)

Ok here it is!

Project Life

I'm sorry for not updating the blog regularly for sooooo long.. Truth is, I'm kinda busy lately! Well yeah, I'm full time working mom, and I spend most of my time after work to play with my two beautiful kids, I also run an etsy shop (after all the kids are sleeping), AND I also do scrapbooking in my other free time (provided there are any). Well, that sounds pretty busy of me, huh?

As if that's not enough for me to handle, recently I also decided to do Project Life! Well, ok at the beginning it wasn't really "Project Life". I just decided to do the photos digitally and print them into photobooks, instead of printing it manually in the good ol' way, and slipping them to premade photo album. And why did I make this decision at the first place?
  1. Digital pages can have more than 1 photo at one page, and I admit I have TONS of photo to do! So having some photos done at 1 go would be nice
  2. I start to have problems keeping the bulky photo album, they're really taking much space! Photobooks would be much thinner
  3. I must admit, I'm REALLY lazy to do up the dates. Normally I would select and print the photos, sort them to be in sequence, slip them to photo album, and write the dates for the photo. Now that's tedious and I don't really enjoy the last part.
  4. The photos look kinda boring. Ok I admit I love fancy stuff and I just love decorating the photos. So just printing it plainly and slip it just like that in the photo album looks kinda boring to me
  5. I found this groupon about photobook from Photobook Singapore, and that's when the idea of doing the photos digitally came to me.
And yes, I have done the photos from January 2012 until present. (though I'm still about 2 weeks behind!). At the first place I'm doing them more like digital scrapbooks.

Sometime back, while I'm busy downloading tons of digital scrapbook freebies across the net, I found this term "Project Life", and hey! I love how that sound! Now when I read more about this "Project Life", I'm totally hooked. Oh my, how can I not know about this sooner??

Project Life is a very smart approach to scrapbooking, founded by Becky Higgins. I must say that it's really smart! One scrapbook page is smartly divided into few sections for photos, journals, etc. Now I find it really good as I can record my daily life, have many photos at one page, and all still looks pretty and organized.

Well, of course I modified the Project Life a little bit. Instead of doing it week-by-week (having a spread for 1 week), I decided not to limit myself. So I will just scrap my photos in the Project Life way, but not according to weeks. So for me, 1 week can have more than 1 spread, or no page at all. So it all depends on whether something worth recording happen that week or not. And so far, I just loved it!! And not all of my page would follow Project Life templates. Some special ones would have a scrapbook page by their own.

Here's the page that I've done for April 2012 so far (1 more page pending, and then I'm done with April!). Mostly in Project Life templates (that I made myself, following the real Project Life template. But anyway, they look the same, don't you think?)

Caitlyn Month 12

Our little baby is now 1 year old!!!

At 1 year old, Caitlyn:

  • has 6 teeth (4 on top, and 2 at the bottom)
  • love to smile and play peek-a-boo
  • can walk! (she started walking at 11 1/2 months)
  • is not afraid of new people
  • especially loves dog and duck (she'll say "wfff wfff" when she see a dog, and "duck duck" when she see a duck)
  • can start "fighting" with Vio. If Vio wants to snatch something from her, she'll try to protect it and say "noooooo!!"  so cute yeah? ;)
  • still loves to EAT!

05 April 2012

Caitlyn Month 11

Ok I'm feeling veeeeeeeery guilty now.. I haven't updated this blog for sooo long! haha! Caitlyn is almost 1 year old now, and I only posted her 11 months milestones now :">

At 11 months, Caitlyn can pull herself up to stand all by herself (without holding on to anything)! Wow!! I'm super amazed.... When Vio can do this, he straight away walk... While Caitlyn can pull herself up to stand first before she actually walk.. hahaha..

She's also getting more active and playful. She especially like to play peek-a-boo, and can ask us to play peek-a-boo with her, for example, she can look for our face from another angle and say "caaaaaaaa..." hahaha... so cuteee..

Photo would be uploaded another day yeah? I haven't uploaded the photo to my laptop yet! ;)

Ok finally! Here it goes..

20 February 2012

Caitlyn 10 Months

At 10 months old, Caitlyn can stand on her 2 feet without support! And she can also sit down from standing position. It's really amazing to see those 2 chubby legs can stand on her own!

She has yet to start cruising, though. But cruising started right after she's 10 months old.

She's also getting more active, and smarter too. When we ask her where's the lamp, she can look up at the lamp. And she also knows her name, by now.

Her fave soft toy is "Julia" which is given by Auntie Allie. Everynight before she goes to bed, she'll hug and kiss Julia first (amongst all other soft toys she has). It's just soooo cute! Just that after she sleeps, she will throw Julia away.. LOL..

And she still LOVES to eat. Even right after she has finished her meal, if she sees someone with a plate, she'll quickly come and say "mamam.. mamam.. mamam..." such a small tummy yet can eat so many things!

02 February 2012

Caitlyn 9 months

9 months old Caitlyn can crawl very well! She also likes to pull herself up to standing position and let go of 1 of her hand.

She can also understand simple instruction like "clap your hand" and "lie down". Her teeth still not growing (only 2 so far) but of course she eats Like big babies! Surprisingly her gum can chew pretty well.

Oh have I mentioned what her first word is? It's "mamam".. lol.. which means eating :p and here's the words that she can say so far
1. Mamam
2. Ma ma (supposedly calling me!)
3. Dah (which means udah)
