Demi's growing up :)

It has been a long while since the last proper update on Demi's tremendous growth. To date she is about 21 month old. It has been a month since she first started 'school' at the childcare centre. Demi is fast adapting to the new environment. After a week of yelling and heart-tearing goodbyes, she now waves sweetly to us and make herself comfy at the play area. We feel that it is a sign of growing up and inevitably our sign of aging :P Being parents is never an easy task. It takes lots of physical effort and emotional turmoils >_<

We have taken a short video clip of Demi gearing up for school. It was taken from our home to the carpark, with a playground along the way. Demi refused to let anyone help her with the big 'school' bag (containing her change of clothing, diapers & milk powder)and demanded to help mummy carry her books :P But as soon as Demi caught sight of the playground, all stuffs were 'dumped' and off she went to the new found paradise! hehehe...

This video was taken in Demi's yet messy bedroom. The clusters were not stopping her to try out the play slide. Really a playful girl by nature!

This video should be a classic to us. Demi always loves to eat on her own. Spoon-feeding is never her favourite. We suppose self-feeding gives her a sense of freedom :P Demi was caught fishing out those bean sprouts from her bowl of rice :D Best of all, she left those unwanted vegetable on mummy's plate instead. See her shaking head when she found those 'yucky' vege :P Hilarious!

Happy Birthday, Mirabel :)

We were invited to Mirabel's 3rd birthday. Thanks to Auntie Wendy & Uncle Mike! It was great as mummy had not seen the rest of the mummy gang for such a long time :P Though it was a birthday party, Ryan and Demi had received their first x'mas presents of the year from Auntie Elaine! Thanks a Million!!

Daddy used his NEW TOY Canon EOS 1000D for the occasion. Still a new user of DSLR, daddy took every opportunity to practise his skill. And here we have a slideshow of pictures taken during the party...

Birthday parties!!

Mummy's young cousin, Kaitleen is one week older than Ryan. Her party was held at at NTUC pasir ris chalet. Lots of foods, cake, swimming for the kids. No wonder Ryan said, I Love Party! Some pictures to share...

Ryan got his fair share of celebration too :D Mummy got him a 3D F1 cake. Think it was really nice to look at and eat too. But it was a tough job to get it sliced up. Really a big thank you to all friends for their thoughtful presence and presents :D Sincerely hope that we have been a good host, providing nice foods & entertainment :P p.s. So glad that the swimming pool really came in handy. Ryan just could not get enough of the dipping. Even Demi was contemplating to dive in every time she caught a glimpse of the pool. Phew, that was close!

the BIG 5 !!

It has been a long while since the last update :P Nest battle is really not an easy feat. Fortunately we could see the end of tunnel very soon. Yippee!

Last friday was Ryan's 5th birthday. Mummy arranged an ecreative cake to be delivered to the childcare center just before the afternoon tea-break. Everyone in the class was still napping away when mummy reached the center with goodies bags and disposable cutlery. But as soon as they realised a party was about to begin, all jumped from the nap, packed the mattresses and crowded around me with lots of complains (about Ryan) and questions. There was one boy actually called me mummy too :P

It was a Ben-10 cake :P Ryan's favourite :D
But from the class response, it looked like the favourites of many boys too. All went 'WOW.....' when the cake was presented. Think this made Ryan extremely proud and excited. he kept repeating, my mummy got it for me; its Ben-10 cake. What more could I ask for? Just glad he had enjoyed himself on this special day.

It's daddy's Birthday!

Mummy and daddy took leave on this day to 'celebrate' his special day. OK, not really a celebration. At least it was a kids-free day, a day we could have some couple time. We went to The Line at Shangri-la Hotel as our last visit was a very memorable one. Mummy could still remember the dishes I didn't get to try as anything more would burst my stomach! The selection was really wide! And they served very fresh oysters! Mummy 'asked' (ok, forced) daddy to take one. It was his least favourite and yet a very big pity should he miss such delicacy... Daddy took a full 2 mintues before he could overcome his fear and took a gulp :P really funny to see his struggling moment and the after-taste reaction. notti mummy :D

We picked up the precious after the long lunch. Mummy got a simple cake for daddy and celebrated with grandma. This made her really happy!

Thomas & Friends SHOW

The day had arrived!!! Finally, Ryan got to meet his favourite train, Thomas in 'person'. Mummy just glad that Demi could get to watch it too... of course, for FREE... YEAH YEAH

We were one hour early and managed to get Thomas merchandises. Ryan chose a Thomas tray mat for his 'mum-mum' table (aka dining table) at S$5. Mummy added another programe sheet which served as a big poster. It also came with a plastic dinner plate. For both, it was S$15. Daddy said No when we wanted to get a Thomas Light Stik at S$15 each. He thought once purchased, we got to get 2 as Demi would expectedly fight for this new toy :P Sigh... Budget Pte Ltd... we shut our eyes and moved on. Luckily Ryan did not make a fuss... He was too excited to see Thomas and occupied himself by posing with Thomas's poster. Vain Pot! ROFL

Really glad that we had got the seatings at front row. At row B AA2, we were 2nd nearest to the stage. Just before the show started, 3-4 actors came to the front rows to say Hi and give out some balloons. (We managed to grab 2 :P) One of them was the 'driver' of Thomas. He stamped Thomas chop on kids' hands. This was enough to make Ryan extremely happy and thrilled! What more could we ask for? Ryan took a picture with this handsome driver too. Too bad daddy's hands were shaky. Not too clear a shot though :P

The show started at 1.30pm sharp. Ryan knew almost all the songs and could 'sing' along. We were surprised that Demi enjoyed the show too. She could sit still throughout on mummy's lap. On and off she would turn her head side to side so as to get a better view :D Whenever there were parts where children waved and said bye to the trains, Demi would hold up her hands and does her baby waves too. She had so much fun singing 'orh, orh, orh'. Towards the end of the show, the Fat Controller came to interact with the audience at front seats, Demi stood on mummy's lap so excitedly that it hurt! >_<

Alas, the show ended, not without surprise. Burst of confetti went off and the children gone crazy grabbing and sweeping these colourful bits. Yet Ryan said sadly, "Mummy, you have 3 tickets, right? can we see again?" Really didn't want to break his little heart just yet. Mummy soothed him with promises to see more shows next time. Actually mummy was planning to bring the precious to the movie, Wall.E.
Maybe we should go in the coming weekend...just maybe :P

Siblings Love/Rivalry

Mummy is too tired.. ahem! ok, too lazy to update the blog. Really exhausted after a whole day of work and nest battle. Hopefully all will be settled by October.

Think pictures tell a thousand words. Just some pictures taken when these two precious were having a sweet sibling time... for a while before breaking into fight and yell. ROFL ROFL

Daddy was doing his regular check on Ryan's teeth for tooth decay when this new budding tooth was found. We are excited and worried at same time :P Happy that Ryan has a new tooth to replace his weak and tiny pearlies. But also worry that his new teeth may not be straight and neat (and be like us - crooked teeth :P )

Not too sure if we need to go visit the Dentist... Is it to early to tell?
