Tubby babies

Ryan @ 5 years 2 months 2 days

Lil B: 1 year 4 months 3 weeks 6 days

Eversince lil B was able to stand independently, occasionally I’ll opt to shower him instead of taking the long bath to save time. He never seemed to mind so long he gets to play water (spraying all corners of the shower room with water). He simply loves water. Whenever he sees me coming into the playroom, he will try his luck by pulling me to the toilet in hope he’ll get another dose of water play.

When they don't get to play in the tub...

Nevertheless, on days when I don’t have to rush chauffeuring the older brother for enrichment classes, he is allowed his tub time. Seeing this, often Ryan couldn’t resist but to join in.

Love this set of pictures…

Seeing how much they love playing water together, I went ahead and bought them an inflatable mini pool about 100cm width just nice to fit into the shower room.

In their new 'tub'.. :D

Darren’s favourite time of the day

@ 1 year 3 months 2 weeks

It has to be bath time….

Everytime he sees me getting into the room, he will pull me to the bathroom. He could now get into the bathroom effortlessly (which is a step lower, about 10cm). After entering the bathroom, he will pull me to the baby tub under the sink and point to the shower room. He could do that repeatedly a few times a day. Really cute.

Angry after I told him ‘time’s up’ :P

Cyring pitifully, even after I allowed him extra 10 mins in the tub

Luckily this boy of mine (like his kor kor) is also pretty easily pacified. Phew…

In the evening is the time the boys are allowed to shower together after their evening outdoor activities. Lil B love, love, absolutely love the time he could ‘play’ with his kor kor, including being able to shower together. He also imitates everything the brother does in the shower, eg collecting water and pouring them over the head.

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.

~~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?

Pom-Pom

@ 8 months 1 week 5 days

For the last couple of days I bathed Ryan almost everyday (clear leave) before sending my cutie to auntie’s place in the afternoon. It is also through this day to day bonding, mummy realised my cutie has grown a lot. When my cutie Ryan was younger (not as if very adult now… heehee), mummy used to hold him cradle sytle and bath time would be a breeze, no play time, no water splashing. Today Ryan no longer wants to be hold. When mummy say Pom-Pom, his face lightens up as it signals play time with his little animal friends – duck duck, hippo, octopus etc etc etc…

Check out the pic below, Ryan actually stood up, held on to the railing wanted to get out of the tub. Then when mummy called out his name, he gave this mummy the usual naughty cheeky smile of his. How to not love this cutie leh….:D

Splish Splash

@ 7 months 2 weeks 5 days

Okie la.. enough about those sad sad bye bye car story. Inspired by Sasha’s naked Jayden pics I was very determined to snap some of Ryan’s over the last weekend. I think the last time we managed any bathing photos was during my confinement month when I wasnt the one bathing Ryan… Phew.. time flies. Ryan is now quite a handful during bath time. Super hyper. I wonder if all babies are the same.
