more on the li' bugger~



We were on our way to the hospital to visit jinsiewJinny, who had just given birth. While in the car, Aidan requested for the window sun shade so I handed it over to him. He then unfolded it, twisted it abit, placed it over his head, turned to me and squealed "Mummy, see! Hat!"

Li' bo peep~


I hope I haven't been making Aidan seem like a brat. He really isn't. He is a sweet and good-natured boy and he's usually quite well-behaved. Even as a newborne, he was such a easy baby to care for, sleeping through the night at 2 months old..Hm, actually, he slept alot when he was a baby..hence i didn't have that much to do as a sahm, which was probably why I blogged alot then. He's always been a sociable kid, doesn't have much problems with strangers (which can be worrying at times 'coz he'll adopt you if you offer him sweets), very independent and isn't very clingy at all..That's why many people had said that he takes after me more than hubby. God is fair. He may look like hubby but he has my personality :D~!

We never have any problems with him in the car, even when he was a baby. He doesn't mind sitting in his child car-seat and in fact, he usually scampers into it enthusiastically and will demand that we buckle him up prompto. Today, while we were in my in-law's car, he sat behind with me as we didn't install the baby carseat. And he still demanded to be buckled up. Actually, he first pointed to my seat-belt and instructed me to belt up first! Wah..fierce man!

He'd actually gwai gwai sat buckled up throughout the journey :)Hmm..he has grown quite a bit now. Guess it's about time he graduates to a booster seat :)

And since young, he's been such a great eater. He wallops up his milk like there's no tomorrow and I had no problem introducing solids to him too! Most parents are worried that their kid isn't eating enough. I worry that he eats too much! And he still isn't slowing down at this age..But thankfully, he's such an active boy and I guess his metabolic rate is quite high so he doesn't put on much weight.

Aidan having his dinner this evening..

Guess how many spring rolls he had on top of his bowl of rice...

and they weren't teeny-weeny spring rolls hor!


His speech & understanding of words has improved too. I have to give credit to dad-in-law, who's been giving him 'writing test' and reading him his favourite books every afternoon. He's able to identify all the alphabets & numbers now..Dad teaches him in an interesting way..by making him read out the number plates of cars at our carpark and the signages when he brings Aidan out for walks.

Yeah..got rapped by alisonraeJean for lamenting that Aidan's rather slow in his speech development. I know I shouldn't have harped on it that much before..and I must not compare him with other kids. He is developing well at his own pace & time and I have to learn to just let him enjoy his childhood and not be such a worry-mommy! Gotta constantly remind myself!
*********************************************

And here's the new baby on LJ :) Kristen looks like Gabriel when he was a baby, doesn't she? Congratulations jinsiewJinny!!


Lotsa entries in the last few days as I was on leave. Today's my last day so I'm going back to work tomorrow! Had been able to rest and spend more time with the li' one, which was good. Oh well, back to the grind i guess...

aha...why isn't Aidan in a booster seat?

I bet you Aidan is definitely eating alot MORE than me!
angeliatay
Aug. 31st, 2005 04:28 pm (UTC)
heh..coz we havent bought one for him. It just occurred to us we should get him one now that he's grown so much.

Erm..Aidan eats more than many adults i know..esp the ladies. That's why mom always says that bringing Aidan to a buffet v 'wuhua' :P

haha... Ethan also likes to play with the window sun shade. He will do like what Aidan did, making a hat. He also shows me how he 'make' butterfly.

Well, that's why in your previous entry I commented your Aidan is really an easy child. You are so lucky!

oh so sweet huh...I hope I can see baby Kris soon...

The things kids do eh..really brings a smile to our faces and it makes parenting more fun :) This was the first time he did the hat thingy! Mebbe i should teach him to do the butterfly :)

You're probably see Kristen soon since u guys go out so often..and it's the Octobabes birthdays soon too hor! Man...our boys are gonna be 3 year old soon!

from the picture it looks like the seat belt fitted Aidan just right - so he must be quite tall now. Must get a comfortable booster seat. Most look very hard and stiff.

it does cut into his neck a li'..so he definitely needs the booster seat. Agree with u that most look quite hard. Am going shopping for it this weekend!

He eats more than me, and that is double of Nana's portion! U've been really blessed to have such an easy going child. And you have a wonderful dad-in-law too!

yeah..he has such a great appetite (tho it's usually for chinese food)...
and you're right..my in-laws are great. Mom-in-law too. She always comes by after work to be with him and bring him for walks. That's why he's so close to them.

I can't believe that such an easy child as Aidan exists! Baby Karu is the exact opposite! The worst is that he hates his car seat and I am always stressed out driving. My blood pressure increases every time I have to go out as it means non stop crying and I have to stop ever so often at petrol stations, car parks etc to calm him down! by the way, does that sun shade thingy that Aidan made into a hat good to get the sun out of his eyes? was thinking of getting one.

It does help to shield the sun-rays for sure. Just make sure you get a nice big one :)

Hmm..not all kids take to the baby carseat..i guess they find it restrictive but i think it's still quite impt to strap your baby up..even if you arent driving. Hope he'll get used to it after a while..

You are indeed blessed to have such an easy kid, such an envy to many mothers, me included.
angeliatay
Sep. 1st, 2005 03:26 pm (UTC)
nah..grass is greener always im sure. i always am in awe with the other kids' devt and then i realise there are other parts of my own kid which i should b proud of instead. same for other moms i guess..but yeah, i should be grateful :)

Aidan has never come across as a brat. I am always amazed at his appetite and envious of his love for food. You have a great child there.
angeliatay
Sep. 1st, 2005 03:24 pm (UTC)
yeah i know..and i should constantly remind myself instead of finding faults :P
