I love you

I’m so happy! I’m waiting at the bus stop for the bus to take me into the city for a night out with my best friend πŸ˜ƒ. I haven’t had a night’s out for ages, we will be having dinner and going for a concert woohoo πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ.

It was a bit of a scramble to get the kids ready for my night out, cooked dinner early, bathed the kids, got myself ready, but I should make it in time. R offered to drive me into the city, but I wanted to check out the bus route because I’ll need to take the bus to work on Monday.

But the night out is not the reason why I’m so happy. As I headed out of the door, Saitaoha said goodbye to me merrily and then she said ‘I love you!!’ It sounded like I luh you… but I was so shocked and happy. Just to make sure, I gave her a hug and said ‘I love you!’ and she replied ‘ I luh you… I luh you!!!’ Even when I closed the door I could hear her shouting I love you from behind the door.

β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️ so happy. I love you Saitaoha and Saitaomei.

Chilling with Gung Gung

I think Saitaomei’s favourite person is Gung Gung! Her solemn face always breaks into a sweet smile when Gung Gung chats to her, she always shakes her leg when Gung Gung is carrying her, and she loves Gung Gung’s music.

Gung Gung, are you going to share some of that?

Just a lick ok

Hehehe, hor chiak.

Hey Gung Gung, how about some of that yummy looking tong sui too?

Chilling on the couch with Gung Gung. Having a London bus for a snack.

Yippee! I love hanging out with my Gung Gung!

Saitaomei is 7 months old

Err actually Saitaomei was 7 months old yesterday, but I forgot to take her milestone picture πŸ˜…. Better late than never right? #secondchildsyndrome

She’s 8.5 kgs, almost a sack of rice I told her yee yee. Starting to roll, blow raspberries, grab at things and putting everything in her mouth. She loves music and especially likes listening to her gung gung play the guitar. She also likes her jeje a lot and is always happy when jeje plays with her which is quite rare. She’s eating solids pretty well too, her favourite is still avocado banana which was a hit with her jeje as well.

I am going to miss this sweetheart a lot when I return to work.

Sigh, love kissing those chubby cheeks.

Most angelic when asleep.

Gosh, the first couple of months were tough, but the rest of the months sped past. Wish my baby would stay a baby for a little while more.

Chef Saitaoha

Ah ma made this yummy som tam today, it was so appetising and delicious, I’m salivating just thinking of it. I made pineapple fried rice and green chicken curry to go with our Thai themed dinner, so good .

Good knife skills Saitaoha! Why were we playing masak masak in the bedroom? I was trying to keep her occupied so her father could build her kitchen diner set in peace.

Demanding customer! I love it that the other side of the kitchen has two diner seats complete with menu. I’m going to move this set to ah ma’s place during the school holidays, the kids will have so much fun.

Such a good buy from Aldi. The down side is the kid is having so much fun that she refuses to go to bed πŸ˜….

Avocado killer

I feel guilty for snapping at Saitaoha during our last weekend together before I return to work. But she was being so whiny and naughty this morning. The last straw was when she decided to adopt an avocado as a pet and threw a tanty when I blended up said pet for her sister’s breakfast!

I felt so terrible and cringed every time I hit the blender because the soft hearted one was crying ‘aaaaawwwoooCADOoooo’ in wobbly tones and pointing her finger at me. This is why you don’t have kids my friends. Because you will be made to feel like an avocado murderer by your child. πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

Sigh I really need to go to Watertown to grab some new clothes and bras (woes of breastfeeding) for work. But the thought of heading out with my terrific two is very underwhelming, I might wait till I return to work and go out during my lunch break instead. Sigh. I know I keep complaining about my babies, but I’m actually sad that I have to leave them and go back to work. I am also very worried for my parents, I don’t want them to age faster! They will have all four kids with them during school holidays too, really mah mah daycare man.

Toys toys toys

Saitaoha must be teething because she woke up at 4am and didn’t sleep for the next few hours. I was zombified for the rest of the day, even though we didn’t do much, I still felt tired and cranky all day.

Her smiles melt my heart though. I am going to miss her babyhood so much, she’s such a sweetie at this age.

They seem to be getting closer, Saitaoha seems to have accepted that mei mei is part of the family now. She has been delighting us with her expanding vocabulary and sentences, it’s too cute for words. She’s also very dramatic and funny, today we brought her to Toys R us to check out their closing down sale. She saw a box of kitchen toys and said ‘I like this!’ When I told her to put it back, she looked sad and said ‘Awwww’ with this face πŸ˜”. But she was very good, put the box down and walked away. She hardly ever insists on buying toys or sweets, she will point them out or touch them but if I say no, she doesn’t protest and will walk away.

This good behaviour totally works on me, I ended up buying her a box of duplo and kitchen stuff for her new diner set πŸ˜…. My justification is that I never buy her toys so it’s ok to indulge now and then😬.

Ah ma must have noticed my eye bags because she’s taking Saitaomei for the night. Again I can’t help but thank heaven that we live so close together. I have the best parents everπŸ’•.

Dr papa

Yesterday was a baking day, baked a honeycomb cake and a lemon butter cake. I thought the lemon butter cake could do with more lemon.

Snacking on nuts while watching World Cup. Guess who wants to eat nuts too?

Why are you surprised that I’m a glutton, I am your daughter after all!

I have been contemplating whether to get the Aldi kitchen set for Saitaoha especially since she loves baking so much. This set has diner seats at the back, so fun for playing masak masak, can pretend to have customers and all. There was only one set left when we went to Aldi tonight, I took that as a sign and bought it! Saitaoha was so happy, she said ‘yeah!!bake cake!’

Doggie has a tear and is ‘sick sick’.

Can you fix it Dr Papa?

Can you also fix polar bear while you’re at it?

And also white xiuxiu and pink xiuxiu?

Dr papa is very busy!

Doggie is cured! Check out Saitaomei photo bombing at the back πŸ˜†.
