Phone Conversation

@ 29 months 4 weeks 1 day

A short clip of Ryan’s phone conversation with Daddy earlier.  I was about to tuck Ryan in bed when the call was made. I try to cultivate a habit for Ryan to wish everyone goodnight including Daddy even if he’s not home yet. Tonight was no exception. It’s always hilarious seeing his gestures when speaks on the phone. But tonight he was able to hold a conversation longer than I expected and it was so funny seeing him swapping phone from ear to ear as if he had spoken hours on the phone. He was telling his Daddy about the missing illuminated moon on the wall, daddy’s at work, that he must big hug kakak before bedtime (he usually hugs everyone goodnight, if Daddy is at home Daddy will even get an extra kiss, as for mommy, needless to elaborate. Heehee…), etc….. Only regret is I wasn’t able to capture the moment on a proper videocam/digicam. My phone was the most convenient recorder I could grab hold of at that spur of time. So hate the annoying buzzing sound in the background. Maybe it’s time for a new phone.. :P

Enjoy the clip … “Phone Conversation

He Picks, He Plays

@ 16 months 4 weeks 1 day

Yes.. he picks his DVD, he plays his DVD…. :P He even knows which button on the remote to switch on the telly nowadays. Actually wasn’t that difficult. I taught him the ‘red button’. Now he knows…

** Ryan even crawled back to Daddy after his ‘achievement’. Aaah.. actually have not seen him crawled for awhile. Miss those dayss…

Separately, if you’re feeling a little down today, check out the clip below.. Hope this will bring a little smile on your face.
* Clip of Ryan laughing hysterically here while watching an animated Mr Bean show…


Before he could feed himself, he decided to feed others. This evening during mealtime, the poor duck became his victim. :P

Sat his duck nicely on the baby chair

Making sure poor duckie eats its food (squeezing its mouth there). Err.. in case anyone is wondering, NO NO NO, I did not do this to Ryan. Don’t know where he learnt that cruel act :P


Random thoughts…

** Daddy is away for a 3D2N conference in Phuket. Will only be back Sunday. Just mommy and baby ….. lonely lonely nightsss….

** Every evening I will bring Ryan to the park. After spending some time there he will lead me to the pool. When we walk near the pool, he’ll pull his shirt indicating he wants to change into his swim wear and go for a swim

** Ryan will bring me the key when I can’t open his can of raisin (yea.. my fault.. he saw me doing it once)

** Every morning, after bidding goodbye to daddy, he will signal to Daddy (pointing to Daddy’s shoes) reminding Daddy to wear his shoes and then say ‘close’ so that Daddy will not forget to close the door. Funny baby I have here heh…

** French Toast for breakfast, Pumpkin cereal for lunch and Salmon Carrot Porridge for dinner

Pictures Galore

Some updates about my little kulingchingkwai. Enjoy~

~~Good Night Baby~~
The sweet little face that that promised me sweet dreams every night… and times of nap. It’s actually quite easy to get Ryan to bed if he’s ready for one. A bottle of milk will do the trick. However, when he’s not sleepy, it takes a little bit more effort – ranging from lullabies, bed time stories, etc. When all good efforts failed.. I have to use the last resort –> LIZARD. Yes.. the creepy lizard. Not in real though.. :D What I’ll do is to say these words out… Ryan, help mommy spot the lizard please. Any lizards? Ooh.. is the lizard coming out… Usually it works. Ryan would be seen staring up the ceiling, focusing his ‘search’ for lizard and dozes off in no time.

Pic taken during his morning nap

~~Good Morning Baby~~
My ‘gai ching’ (chicken essence) that gives me a boost of energy every morning. Being the face that greets me good morning everyday.

One of my friend commented Ryan has this ‘lum sei lui’ smile (aka the ‘half’ smile that melts a girl’s heart). True ar? Hmm.. my opinion… mmm..not sure but I think he has Jackie Chan’s nose la.. :D

~~Shower Time~~
Nothing could get Ryan more excited than ‘pom-pom’ time cos that also mean he could play with the shower head. The first time I showered him back in KL, he was soooo upset when we signalled timeout that he screamed and wailed his lungs out. I’ve never seen him so upset. Eversince then I tried to avoid showering him until now we’re in SG, the shower area is simply too small for a tub nor to fit two people inside. So for the past one week plus I’ve been showering him inside the bath tub instead. Well, I guess practise makes perfect. He’s no pulling faces, no longer upset when I turn off the water. Why? I discovered another trick lor. After we’re done, I’ll just have to tell him (scare him to be precise.. I’m such evil), Ryan…see got creases/lines on your fingers already. Hurry up before it spreads all over your body and face. I’m not sure if he understands the whole thing but Terra.. he’ll be out, wrapped in towel in no time; all with no single fuss. :D Blehhh…

~~ Boredom Casted on His Face~~
Poor baby. So ‘moon’. Pic taken just before we left the house for our new apt whereby a new toy awaits him. I cant wait to move in soon so Ryan could be reunited with all his other toys.

Like father like son?

New toy from Ikea. Hmm.. still doesn’t looked too pleased there heh… (more toyssss pls)

~~ Fussy baby~~
The 16th month old start making his decision. Yes.. that’s what Ryan does lately. Generally Ryan is quite cincai when it comes to most things such as food, clothes, toys etc but these few days he tested the water on my patience when he leant he could actually decide for himself. For a start, nowadays he decides – No. 1) The CDs he want to watch on the telly and No.2) The shoe he wants to wear.

Pic above shown 3 of his most fav CDs. Ryan would pick the CD based on the pic he saw on the CD label. If you decide to put another one, he’ll shove the one he picked right to us until we run it on the player. Aah.. last few days I ended up watching Brainy Baby again and again and again until I think I could remember everything about it.

Ryan has about 4 pairs of shoes but this white one is by far his all time fav. I have at least two pairs of Ryan’s shoes in my car. In the car, I’ll ask him to pick a pair he wants to wear. Speaking of coincidence or what but it’s always the white pair that he chooses. Even if he picks the other pair, he’ll be seen attempting to pull the shoes off after awhile. Really ‘yim chim’ (fussy).

~~ I don’t need a maid~~
Such a great helper I have here.. who said this mommy needs a maid…

As seen on clip, Linda was teasing Ryan there to wipe clean the table. Ryan took a look at the hanky and said ‘mei you’ suggesting it’s not dirty. Probably thinking why this silly Linda asked me to clean the table when it’s not dirty.. :P Ps: Ryan likes to use his left hand alot.. indication of him being a lefty?

Our Trip to Langkawi

@ 14 months 2 weeks 2 days

Langkawi Trip: 28th June – 1 July 2007

3 nights at the secluded Andaman resort was a good breakaway from the bustling city. Infact this is the real trip we had in the last two years (yeah.. I was full of excuses speaking of vacation during my pregnancy and after Ryan’s arrival, my excuse was that Ryan was then too small to travel). Now that he’s 14 months, no more excuse.

Ryan behaved really well throughout our stay in Langkawi. The one hour flight was a breeze as well. Ryan slept through the hour long flight journey and only woke up when the plane landed. Phew~~ but as usual the little fella was acting polymath all the time, busy looking around and exploring his surroundings as soon as we touched down.

We checked into the resort around 2pm and after a quick lunch in our room, all three of us dozed off like in nanoseconds. We woke up 3 hours later and zoomed down the beach area to watch the sunset. Ryan had his first taste of walking on the beach. He acted chary at first but after awhile he was alright. But I wasn’t too comfortable and was pestering hubs to leave upon seeing many crab nests on the sand. Don’t ask me why. I tak tahan (cannot accept) the round shape sands the craps made; simply eerily scary. Geli! So off we go to the wading pool. Ryan warmed up instantly at the pool; as if he has been to the pool many many times when in fact it was his virgin dip into a pool. He certainly had good time kicking water here and there. Glad he enjoyed.

The next few days were mostly spent in the resort itself, in the pool and wandering around. We also brought Ryan to the Kids Club twice as we felt he would have missed his toys, balloons, soft balls etc. Sure enough. He had a good time running around the play area, throwing the softballs and messing up the place.

We brought Ryan to the real pool (slightly deeper la) on the 3rd day. As soon as we put Ryan on the floater, he got tensed up. He was struggling for release. He actually bit me because he was just too afraid when his feet were off the ground. See the love bite I got from the little fella (below pic…) We tried all methods. Hugged, stayed close to Ryan, distracted him by showing him the rest of the babies with floaters etc etc. Luckily Ryan’s fear was a short lived one and he was soon able to relaxed and chilled with the little airbag around him.

The only regret we had was not able to visit the spa. Have heard so much about it but with a baby, we both decided to give it a miss although the resort does offer baby sitting facility. Nah… how could I leave my baby with a stranger?

Overall, it was a FUN, FUN, FUN trip. Service was good at the resort. The staff greeted us by name and were quite attentive on our requests. Just a little let down in terms of cleanliness (u know, the usual under bed area). On the other hand, Ryan proved to be much well behaved than I have anticipated. Very cooperative and was at his bestest behaviour most of the time; what more to ask for from a 14 month old baby. Oh…except that he still can’t stay occupied throughout our meals *slap head*

Little Drummer in the Making

@ 1 year 2 months 1 week 5 days

Ryan develops this special interest in balloons, basket balls, footballs, guli, anything round in fact. He just loves playing with them. Imagine the very first word he would say the moment he wake up will be – “ball”; the second word also “ball” and he’ll go ball ball ball….. until we give him the balloons/balls in his cot.

When it comes to malling, the word that never leaves his mouth is – “ball.. ball.. ball..ball.. balllllllll” and he’ll point to us the balloons, balls, and whatever whatever round shape figures he spotted in the mall. Thank goodness nowadays he longer gets cranky when his wishes/desires for one were not met. Pretty manageable now. Probably knowing he has tons of them at home.

Frankly I must salute my son. His eyes can be really sharp that he could spot the most hidden ball or balloon which we adult would have easily missed. I must say eversince I became a mom, I’ve changed so much just for the sake of keeping Ryan happy. Example, I never thought this would happen to me before but nowadays if I see another baby holding on to a balloon, I’ll actually peer my eyes attempting to spot logo printed on the balloon in hope to figure out who actually gives them out (for free) so I’ll know where to source in case my son fuss for it. *slap head*

When I say Ryan really loves his balloon.. I meant it. Check out what stunt he’ll perform with his two balloons. A clip of a little drummer in the making.
