Bed Time Woes (part 2)

Lil B @ 1 year 9 months 2 weeks 1 day

Cont here.

Darren is one energetic moo moo. 1 hour of bedtime stories and nursery rhymes failed to satisfy his bedtime crave. He kept asking me to SIT next to him and sing him ‘Wheel on the bus’ again and again and again, with full hand gestures.

He’s definitely not easily pleased. I reprimanded him for being unreasonable and he showed me this…


He was upset and shed tears pitifully. He simply refused to budge despite my apologetic efforts. So stubborn and he’s only 1 year old. Early signs of Terrible 2? Maybe and I foresee more headaches to come for sure. Anyway he fell asleep after staying in that position for 10 mins.


Bed Time Woos

Lil B @ 1 year 8 months 3 weeks 3 days

This 20 month old toddler is not one bit shaken despite scaring him with lizard threats. Instead, he was giving umpteen excuses not to sleep. First he was looking for his car then he wanted story time (again). *cheeky cheeky* ☺☺


He was squinting his eyes at the beginning of the video because mommy switched on the lights for recording. Sorry baby.

Edit to add: Part 2 here


Security Blacket

Lil B @ 1 year 8 months 2 weeks 4 days

Just like his kor kor, lil B has his security blanket too. He used to favor his hanky a lot but for the past one week or so, I noticed a sense of attachment lil B showed towards his blue blankie. Even my helper notices that. We caught him nipping and stroking the sides of the blankie a few times during milk , nap and sleep time. We’ll see if this will be his ultimate favorite..

Ryan’s Yucky “Green”

Ryan’s two other ‘must have’ ..”Blue” and “Fluffy Cute” (we bought the elephant from FantaSea, Phuket and Ryan named it Mr Fluffy Cute)

And finally Darren’s little ‘Blankie’..

The beginning of an addiction? 

Edit to add…

Screenshot of a video I took of lil B on 13Oct, 12.07am. I wonder if he dreamt of Blankie. 




Security Blanket

@ 1 year 3 months 2 weeks

Lil B simply loves to fiddle with his hanky. I remember when lil B was a baby, his hanky kept him calm especially during bed time. After awhile, he seemed to have forgotten that favor. It was until last week, I noticed his interest to carry the handky around and fiddles with it from time to time. A few times when he fusses during sleep (nightmare maybe?), I passed him the handky and he actually calmed down. :D


Favors watching his baby show on the floor. Gosh.. my baby has double chin.
