December has to be my favourite month in the year. Somehow there’s a holiday mood in the air, Christmas tunes playing in the malls, sales everywhere in the shops and online and not forgetting the decor!
Booked ourselves a staycation during the Christmas week and we can’t wait! We are going to Rasa Sentosa, Shangri-La for one night. Hopefully my daughter enjoys her first time at a beach, and Ryan’s first time in a hotel room. Keeping fingers crossed both the hubby and I will remain sane by the end of the stay.
In the meantime, here are some Christmas-y photos.
One gadget I got after having Elise was the Beaba Babycook, but I didn’t use it until Ryan was born. Blame it on the variety of ready-to-eat purees out in the market.
Well, after Ryan was born and started showing an interest in food when he was nearing 6 months, I decided to get down to it and cook something for him to enjoy. I bought the recipe book earlier, but I found the recipes unfriendly when it comes to everyday cooking in an Asian country. The ingredients aren’t what you can find easily at NTUC Fairprice or Cold Storage. So i started browsing online, and one of the recipe I found on Beaba Singapore’s facebook page looked and sounded interesting – Pink Soup.
Here’s the recipe, its suitable for babies aged 6 months and up.
PS: The courgette is a zucchini, I had to google for it.
Oh my god, its been what..15 months since my last post. Why did I stop posting? Because I am busy with two kids. Yes TWO kids. I gave birth to a handsome baby boy, Ryan, in May this year.
Motherhood ain’t easy man. Elise is almost 20 months and with her 6 months old baby brother, they are enough to drive any sane person up the wall. But I still love them a lot.
Especially loving the little moments when they interact with each other.
The journey to motherhood sure wasn’t an easy one. Throughout the pregnancy, I had horrible morning sickness, seriously, who named it MORNING sickness(?), it comes at all times of the day!
It’s been so long since a blog entry came up that I really have no idea where to begin!
The last few months have been tiring/fulfilling/tiring/touching/tiring… Was on bed rest for the last 1.5 months of my pregnancy due to threatened premature labour. It was SO BORING. All I do is lie in bed with my iPad, watch dramas, play hidden objects games etc, you get it.
In the end, I had to have a C-Sect to get the little girl out, but she is such a little darling. Whenever you feel tired, just a smile from her makes everything seem alright.
Can’t wait to knock off work to see her everyday.
