Molar Surfaced

@ 11 months 3 weeks 3 days

Ryan’s molar has finally surfaced. They say some babies may experience exquisite pain and swelling during molar teething. I am not sure if I have witnessed that on Ryan but the myth on ear pulling was evident though as he was seen scratching his right ear on several occassion. Anyways, it was during the ride to 1U yesterday morning that I saw Ryan’s pearly molar (right) on his gum and this evening while cleaning his mouth, I saw another tiny white dot on his left gum (likely the left molar is also cutting out). No wonder so cranky these days.

I do not know whether it was my imagination or what.. somehow I find my boy has grown so much over the last few weeks. He is now able to walk independently, he is now able to play by himself for a long time and amazingly able to play with his toys the way they should be played. He also loves his playing balls so much that he will walk with his two hands occupied by them.. at time he will show you a little trick by bouncing the ball on to the ground, pick it up and bounce it again and again. His sleeping habit has also improved. On a few occassion, he even slept on his own without any stimulation (patting/lullabies) from mummy. Ooh… I do miss his baby-hood days (Sasha.. I couldn’t agree with you more)
Lately I realised Ryan somehow learnt to enjoy his car seat ride, he is now able to entertain himself by looking out the window watching and pointing the passing trees, buildings, cars what not.. then he’ll start ‘Eh, Eh, Eh’ expecting you to look to the direction and respond. In addition, he is also more willing to sit patiently while enjoying his drink (usually Ribena). And at times he simply just stare blank outside the window in deep thoughts (I assume happily day dreaming there.. :P) … as shown below.. Heehee…

Cheeky boy can’t get enough of one of his sleep mates.

Uninvited *invader* in my dessert

@ 11 months 3 weeks 2 days

We went to Spring Garden in Mid Valley for dinner Saturday evening. The restaurant was unusually packed due to the current food promotion they’re running and you can see the workers were stressed out due to the increased patrons to their outlet.

The promo of RM10.80 per dish was no big deal. The portion was very small, sufficient for two pax probably and the waiting period for the food to be served was simply intolerateable. Towards the end, while enjoying my dessert, suddenly I saw this…….

Yes… that was Prince ‘Siu Keong’ (little cockroach) in my bowl of dessert. Arrghh!!!! When I summoned the captain over, she apologised (though no apologetic look on her face) and volunteered to change to another bowl. Siao!! I think it will be a while before I revisit them for meal….
