He can walk.. A bit unstable but certainly can walk all the way without scratching his knees.
Has 8 teeth.
He can say mama.. but sometimes it goes mamamamama.. So I am not sure whether he knows what mama means yet.
He is not scared of cats. Some of my mum's cats would run away from him.
Loves to eat cod liver oil.. Oh my.. That tastes T_______T .. But then, good boy!
Looking at this picture made me realize how big he is now. Some of his shirts can't fit him nicely anymore. Time for mummy to shop then.
This one lawak.. I sent this to my mum.. This pic was taken at Tesco's Jitra food court.
My mum made a caption "Bila makanan nak sampai. Nak balik SP".
*Sg.Petani is where my parents live.
Another thing which I never fail to remind myself is to keep a saving for my little boy. When he was in my tummy, I took the Prudential insurance, to protect both of us. I just couldn't bare if he comes out with any sickness and it would be a nightmare if I can't afford to pay the bills.
You get what I mean? Or did I think too much? That's what mother does best right?
I never knew being a mother is really a tough work. *roll sleeves..
I even had an Excel worksheet to put all my expenses, budget, his saving etc. Change to a new car is definitely not an option at all. I wonder during his time, will PTPTN still exists and will the cost of tertiary education increase by the time. Oh my.. I really need to slow down.
I had opened a Tabung Haji account for him just right after I finished my confinement. Yes.. I was that super excited, couldn't wait for any delay. All angpaos will definitely go into that account. I read that you are suppose to spread your money (not that I have too much), so last week, I opened an ASB account for him. Just like mummy. Now we have both account. Baru geng.
It was such an experiment searching for food that your baby would like or prefer. He might just throw it out, which could mean he hates it or it could be just because it tastes new to him.
My little boy food regime is simple. We make porridge/pasta for him with chicken/meat/fish and vegetables for his main meal. He has 8 teeth (up until today) but we still need to blend his porridge, otherwise he would choke and worst case so far, he would just threw it out. So don't you dare come to me and ask to feed my baby with rice and soup.
We do give him biscuits for breakfast and during our meal time (lunch/dinner) since he would be sitting with us at the dining table. One of his favourites is Graduates Puff.
I find it is quite hard to purchase Graduates Puffs at Cold Storage since they are always out of stock. So, I had to googled and found that few baby shops and online shops sell Graduates Puffs. FYI, I purchased them from Applecrumby & Fish. Service was good. I ordered on Tuesday evening and received them today (Thursday) via Nationwide. I did once buy them from Babyland at SS2. Both of their prices are the same.
Each bottle costs me RM21.. You better eat them.
Btw, today is my little boy 2nd day at Taska. I picked him up at 3pm. So, that means 3/4 day for him today. Overall it was good. He didn't cry. Played well. Hopefully, he stays good in upcoming days.
Lama tinggal blog .. Ever since I do not have a lappy-internet-connection at home my internet saviour was only my phone.
So, today.. 04.02.2015, Wednesday, is my lil boy 1st day at Taska..
He didn't cry when my mum and I dropped him at Taska, but he looked puzzled. I didn't get to 'bye-bye' him since I made my way out so quick because tears were coming down....
Hisshh.. so drama. Mum and I were both with tears and the lil boy was not. I do hope he is ok.
What did I tell my boy? Do not hit anyone ok my dear.. Be nice.. Behave nicely.
What did I tell the teacher? If you lost your patience, just give me a call..
But that's ok. I am going to pick him up at 2pm today.. Bahaha.. Slowly transition from half day to full day. InsyaAllah..
After a year of fully breastfeeding my baby only I started feeding him with formula milk. *No judgement please.. I am just glad that my mum was staying with us, so that I can go back home whenever I like. I tried Anmum Infacare and thank goodness so far so good. Nothing bad *touchwood* happened yet. But the thing is, Anmum Infacare is quite pricey, well at least to me. I know there are lots of other brand which are cheaper, but I would love to try my best to give whatever the best I think for my lil boy.
*waving bye-bye to new shoes and handbags
From Mr. Google & one aunty at Tesco, I found that, Anmum is sold cheaper at 99 Speedmart and Kedai Ubat Cina.. Please take note, I only survey for Anmum, so I have no idea about other brands. So, I went to Seksyen 14, Petaling Jaya, where both of the shops mentioned are located. I always compare prices, but then Infacare was not available at the moment at Speedmart so I bought at Pusat Ubat-Ubatan dan Kedai Serbaneka (pic). It is RM51.80 for 650g. If I am not mistaken, Tesco sells at RM59 and I never see them on sale. Okla.. Murah few RM and it is near to my place.
The shop. Located nearby Maybank, Digital Mall.. opposite of Wah Chan.
It could be anything.. I always feel that as long as your husband/partner is not a drug addict or abuser (kaki pukul), he is still a good husband. Still acceptable to remain by your side or in the house. And we should be grateful that he is not in the 2 categories. But what about womanizer? Main kayu tiga behind your back? Or perhaps the husband who never pays nafkah to the wife presumably that he can't afford to give or the wife is fine with that situation.
I am not here to judge. My marriage is far from perfect. I am just here to express my feelings. And I am not trying to be an expert in marriage thingy.
I do have single lady friends who are happy with their single life. Certain yes.. Certain not. No, they are not lesbians. Being single doesn't mean you are alone.
Recently, my friend (female friend) told me how his husband cheats on her. Being secretive just because the husband worried that the wife would get upset and furious. It was not the 1st time that, she had to tolerate with such behaviour. This may sound silly or petty problem to you but you know what.. I always believe, there shouldn't be any secrets between husbands and wives. Be it minor or major. Kecil-kecil itu ok la.. Macam pergi makan nasi ayam tengah hari tak bagitau, ok je kot. Kot tetiba tak bgtau pasal lunch nasi ayam lepas dia tu dia tau dan kena marah, tak tau lah.. mungkin dia pun ngidam nak makan nasi ayam jugak.
So, back to my friend. Her husband has a habit of borrowing money from friends. Mind you, first thing in mind you would think that's ridiculous BECAUSE his paycheck is huge than us average employed, drives an expensive car (at least to me since the monthly installment is triple from my car) and as for their baby, the wife has been forking out her own money for the baby's expenses and the household items. They don't even own a house yet. When he was asked what did he do with the money, he had no words. He just said he had no idea. Owh.. By the way, he did give nafkah to the wife. The wife has been managing his debt payment ever since REMINDER LETTERS arrived their place. Turned out that he had few personal loans and credit card up to RM80K in total. And no.. not even a single gift for the wife (for giving birth to a baby boy.. at least). *sigh.
What the wife did? She took out her savings to settle all the late payment. But then I guess, that's what all wives would do. We do our best for the husband even we do expect not a small appreciation would be given by the husband. And yes.. It's a fact. Because he did it again. She was thinking of having a divorce before it becomes worst like probably later on bila dah tak da kawan nak bagi pinjam duit, the husband pergi pinjam kat along pulak. Who knows. *touch wood.
But then, she has a baby to think of. Hmm.. You know what..
The worst part is..
I can only listen.
It may be different situation to you out there.. Have some faith.. Allah S.W.T is always with you. Keep telling yourself that. I know it's not nice to share your marriage problem, but I'd prefer listening to my friends problem rather than leaving them alone. Kita tak nak tetiba, satu hari, terbaca pasal kawan kita dah bunuh diri dalam surat khabar. Lepas tu menyesal sebab, we're not there when she needs us the most.
This is just my thoughts.. How I feel.. and how you feel about this issue might be different.
I have just received a Skip Hop Pronto! Changing Station today. I was supposed to receive my lil boy new stroller too but somehow that particular seller didn't reply my WA this afternoon. Apparently she was like a reseller. Well that's what I thought since the supplier was the one delivering the item. Never mind. Let's just hope I shall receive the item tomorrow. FYI, it has been almost 2 weeks delay.
I just think I have to had this Pronto changing station since I don't like to bring my school-bag-like diaper bag when I go out. My husband should have acknowledged the existence of Storksak or Skip Hop before buying the bag. As for the time being, my diaper bag a.k.a my office bag is Longchamp medium size.
So, let see..
The size when it is folded is 7.7" x 12" x 1". It has zipper compartment outside to put your small items and also a transparent case for your wipe.
I tell u. She is one of the best seller I have ever met. I always like online seller who has very good discipline/attitude throughout the buying process. I normally 'malas' to ask questions like 'When are you going to deliver the item' or 'Have you delivered the item since I have not received it yet' or 'Could you kindly provide me with the details of the delivery'. I do not want to sound like a fussy/annoying buyer.
And yes.. I do understand how hard it is for working-at-home-mum to reply our text a.s.a.p. But still if it has been delayed for weeks and the item is not cheap (I make prompt payment as always) and you didn't make any effort to update your FB page/ Instagram etc, I think any customer would turn into annoying buyer.
Back to the Skip Hop Pronto Changing Station.
How big it is?
I think my lil boy's bump can fit onto it since it is quite huge.
FYI, she is a WAHM and currently 7 months pregnant. So have some patient if she does not reply your message after 5 minutes. Based on my own experience dealing with her, it was never disappointing yet. So, if you are looking for any items from Storksak, Ergo carrier or Cosatto etc brands, kindly proceed to her page.
p/s - As usual, this is my own personal review and the item is bought with my own money.
