How the Babies Have Blossomed

@ 17 months 1 week

I have known MalaikaMommy for 10 years. We were uni mates, flat mates, we went diving together and coincidentally we even shared the same pregnancy due date which was 24th April 2006. We actually joked that we would likely be giving birth next to each other and could hear the screaming across the labour room :P . Anyways, “mo kum kiu keh….”(no such coincidence), I gave birth to Ryan 8 days earlier and Malaika came to the world on 22nd April.

Time has not been always on our side since the arrival of our babies. So we probably only met up 4 times (exclude the time we bumped into each other at Mid Valley) since the last 17 months. The most recent being last Tuesday when I visited her and she came over my place following Thursday so the two Ariens could rekindle their little friendship. Time really flies.. The last time the met was back in Feb07 during the CNY and check out the pics. They have blossomed from chubby babies to slimmy healthy toddlers now…. (as much as i enjoy being with a more interactive Ryan now, I do miss his innocent baby days)

Taken in Feb2007

Taken 18 Sept 2007

Taken 20 Sept 2007. Both their eyes glued to the TV (think it was Barney show)

Speaking of Barney, we bought lil Ryan a Barney toy. He has not always been a fan of soft toys but this little purple dinasour is indeed special. This is how much he adores the lil dinasour…

Little kiss from Ryan to the purple dinasour


Other sembang sembang….

I am one happy SAHM since last Friday? Why? Because in laws were here and they brought along Linda. Yes yes.. my maid from KL and she will stay with us until Raya which by then my new maid will be here. Yoohoo~~~

I hurt my back last Friday and it got so bad that I was limping and could barely move around. I’m much better today and I hope nothing serious happened to my back. Whatever it is… now I could sit in front of my laptop, TV and seriously enjoy some meme time.

  16. < ![CDATA[As they grow older.. you can see.. the parents have to shove them close to each other to take pix woh.. :P


    The 18th Sept pix like both just had a fight like that.

    You didn’t mention if they get along well.. but at this age, I think it’s hard to tell, when they are 3.. it’ll be better.]]>

    PJ: Oh.. I bought the Barney for S39.90. I think KL cheaper.

    ZM: They got along okay.. more parallel play now tho. But one thing for sure, my son was very keen to shower Malaika his affections. As soon as we got to MM’s place.. he was fast to grab her, cant wait to hug her, kiss her.. (and this is not the first time… the last time they met in KL also the same) *slap head*]]>
