who's afraid of the big red man?


A typical family pic..(the two unsmiling fellas and only me grinning away)
..and yeah, Aidan was still in a daze at this point.

the pic 'santarina' took of us was so blur..fortunately, the polariod came out clearer..</small>


Brought Aidan down to town to meet 'Santa' this evening @the Marriot Hotel. It was supposed to be this charity drive where proceeds from the photo-taking sessions will go to the Children Cancer Foundation..

Aidan was totally freaked out by 'Santa'!! When we sat down next to him to have the picture taken, he stared unblinkingly at him and was about to burst into tears when I swiftly plonked him on hubby's lap instead so he won't be that close to the big red man. And even then, he continued to stare at him uneasily. That was why Santa's helper had to take the pic of us from the side instead of the typical 'frontal' shot..coz Aidan's eyes were fixated on Santa and we couldn't get him to move his head frontwards at all..Okay..now I should think twice about having a Santa over on his birthday party. Won't be a very happy birthday if the li' one starts cowering in a corner becuz of his fear for dear Santa. Hmm..

We then had our own picture taking sessions ..next to the huge X'mas tree in the hotel lobby :) We'd initially wanted to go around town to take more pics but the weather didn't look good so we ditched the plan and had dinner at a Thai Restaurant at Coronation Road.No regrets coz the food was fab *slurp*~~

Aidan with mummy..and with daddy..

Bibi & li' Renee, Aidan & Daddy..

=================

Yesterday evening, as I sat across Aidan when Bibiana was feeding him his banana dessert, I suddenly dawned upon me how much Aidan's looks has changed..He no longer looks baby-ish anymore..but more like a li' adult ,especially now that his hair has grown out nicely although his baby fats is still there. When I was in the cab with him yesterday, the cabby commented that his hairdo is so cute coz it reminds his own do....and the cabby has a receding hairline *coff* ~

And today, while buying durians, this couple with a baby about the same age as Aidan started chatting with us..by enquiring Aidan's age first. They were 'marvelling' at how much hair he had as they looked woefully at their baby's bald head. Felt good actually to have people commenting that Aidan had lotsa hair coz for the longest time, they were saying that he was botak..yeah, i'm so easy to please eh :)

Am wondering whether I should bring him to Fantastic Sam for his first free haircut so that he'll look neater on his birthday :)


mmm..mummummum..

=================

Don't know why but I don't seem to have the inclination to update LJ that regularly..I guess part of the reason is that I feel so tired easily now. Imagine, if i start working, I'm probably 'neglect' writing on LJ more..

I know the 2 weeks of no carbs had helped ..my shorts/pants feel looser and I can fit better into some of my clothes though I reckon I'm still a size L. It's the tummy and flabby thighs I need to work on and I suspect no amount of diet programs gonna help that much unless I start working out regularly. So, my next plan is to at least try to do some jogging on the threadmills at my gym downstairs or I should just go buy a skipping rope so that I skip at the comfort of my own home.

Now having said all that, I must get into action and not be a nato~

erhm, go easy on the knees...skipping is high impact.

the thing about kids and pictures is that..well...you never know how they're going to turn out. so look on it as a good thing aidan's didn't cry =)

i was sorta wondering how it looked like from the parent's perspective when their kids grow up though..

(that being said, whats the name of the thai restaurant? sounds good..)

heh no worries. not aimin to break any world record. Just wanna skip leisurely and well, at least sweat a little..

I realise Aidan always end up lookin kinda 'stoned' in group pics but when it's me takin him alone, he has more expressions.

Actually, it's a mixed feelin when u see ur kid growing..U feel a li' nostalgic coz u remember the times when he was such a wee li' thing and how dependent he is on u..but when u see him growing so fine, and becoming more agile and 'talkative', you can't help but feel proud of ur child. It's really a wondrous feeling to see ur baby growing up before ur eyes.

Hmm..I think the restaurant's name is Thai Noodle House (am not really that sure tho)..It's a really small restaurant but it was jam packed!

heh..dun just rely on pictures..they sometimes dun tell the whole story and it only reflects the mood of that moment :)

But seriously, it's great to have a family ..I am the last person pple would expect to be a sahm and to be able to cope with a child on my own and i did it..it's a great feeling..and the support is so necessary..be it a husband or family....

U are still young anyway..enjoy life as it is first~~

ya ya Aidan really had more hair compared to a few months back... It don't look messy. Unless you are adventurous / bold enough for the hair-cut, else Aidan look ok. Next week is his BIG day, sure to take lots of photos, so you know lah...

When I was trying to slim down for my wedding, I did the holaho (not sure the spelling is correct or not, the one that you can get from Watson), then I will just do that at home while watching TV, so can do for one whole hour, rest during commerial. It really help to tone my thighs. Hmmm.. Maybe I should start doing that again.

Hey, I was at Orchard Road this evening... read my LJ....

Dec. 13th, 2003 07:11 pm (UTC)

What's a holaho *grin*? Hey..we could have met up in orchard yesterday eh!

Yo, you definitely look slimmer! The diet thingy is paying off eh? And yeah, Aidan's looking more and more like a "little man" and less a baby.

I remember my younger sis used to be terrified of Santa too when we were kids. She'd run away whenever she spotted him in department stores and hotels. It was only later when she realised Santa = presents that she kinda warmed up to him. Hahaha!
angeliatay
Dec. 14th, 2003 05:23 am (UTC)
even when Santa gave Aidan a gingerbread man, the li' one still remained terrified :P..

Hmm..i thought usually, kids will be frightened of clowns instead of Santas...

bbqstingray's boss went for pilates for 5 months after her childbirth, and she's weighing less than before she was pregnant now, so maybe you could give that a try? Much less impact than skipping or running too...
angeliatay
Dec. 14th, 2003 05:24 am (UTC)
the thing is..i really dun think i have the time to go for stuff like pilates or boxercise regularly coz someone would need to take care of Aidan if i sign up for the classes and for it to be effective, it needs to be frequent. At least for skipping or using my gym downstairs, its at my own convenience..

Hey! Congratulations on the weight n inches lost....keep it up!

It takes a lot of determination to exercise regularly (at least for me). I have 2 treadmmills, stationary bicycle & Power rider at home but I never got to using them at all (too lazy lah)

Good luck...& see ya at Aidan's party!

Jess
*looking forward to the party*

San coming soon @ very.kanasai.com
lol, think there r quite alot of babies who will be/ are afraid of things/ people in costumes. its also good, then strangers cannot take aidan away! our close family friend's oldest daughter would go with ANY1 who gave her sweets when she was a baby/ toddler, luckily its safer in singapore... *gosh*

u live in a condo, if u can swim, go swimming, its low impact, relaxing and can help u lose weight :) as for other forms of exercise eg. yoga/ pilates, i am sure ur mum or mil will be more than happy to look after aidan while u go?
angeliatay

Re: San coming soon @ very.kanasai.com
actually, Aidan is usually not v scared of strangers and we've ever commented that if any one offers him sweets/food, he'll just follow the person coz he's such a greedy pig. I guess Santa's the only exception hehe..

Hmm..the thing is..it means that I have to ask my mil to be here regularly just so that i can go for the exercise..quite paiseh. I think I'll just try to use my gym at the condo..especially since we have the facilities here :)
