hm..still the same KL face..

Realised I haven't been updating for a while.. My sorethroat came back on Monday and I started coughing a li' too. Probably talked/ate/enjoyed myself too much on Sunday during the QE/Apprentice marathon cum mahjong session. Am okay now after resting and drinking loads of liquids..Feelin bad though coz I might have passed my cough/flu to my mil and e_rambler...

Aidan still has runny nose but since Sunday, he started getting quite grouchy and has been throwing tantrums. I doubt he's not feeling well because he only behaves like a diva when he doesn't get his way. Maybe he's angry with me for leaving him with his grandparents for almost the whole day on Sunday..

A few days back, Aidan discovered how he could get hold of stuff not within his reach. He would carry stools/boxes or bulky toys and place them near the dining table and step on them, elevating himself higher and start grabbing the items on the table. He has also learnt how to manually turn on the VCD player in the bedroom as he's able to reach the buttons on the player from the edge of the bed.. And for that, I had to scold & smack him each time he attempts to do it because I fear he may end up grabbing the vcd player or tv somehow and bring them crashing down. I guess I may have to remove the electronic items soon ..*sigh* The perils of having a growing child..

reading just before his bedtime tonite..he looks more lankier now eh..

Aidan's still not talking much at 16+ months. I admit, I'm green with envy and in awe when the other moms list down their kids' vocal abilities in their lj. Yeah I know..shouldn't compare *argh*

He babbles alot though...most of the time, he goes tatatatatatata like a machine gun. Of coz he does say some common words like papa, mama, mummum and can identify stuff like fish (ish), bear, ball..and that's only when he feels like it..

I'm not really worried..just having the normal kiasu mommy mentality i guess.. Oh well..

Starting from tomorrow,I will be taking some pills prescribed by the doctor in my attempt to lose weight. One's an appetite suppressant and another's a milder form of 'xenical' called chitosan- that targets the absorption of fats in the body.

I am fully aware that there may be side effects with these pills but I've also spoken to others who had taken similar pills and friends in the medical/pharma line. I've also scoured the net for information. Most had indicated that as long as I do not overdose on the meds, it should be fine.

I guess I probably am desperate in a way..hate having such a flabby tummy and not being able to fit in so many of my clothes..bah! I know i'm taking a shortcut way here but ..I guess i simply don't have the discipline to diet or workout. Me bad..

On a lighter note..can u believe this was Janice Dickinson (the 'evil' judge in American Next Top Model) during her modellling days?

May. 4th, 2004 09:15 am (UTC)
yeah i guess..

lotsa pple seems to be falling ill..the weather's to blame. U take care too!

try talking to him like an adult? for some reason, the conversation about kids talking came up during lunch one day and my colleagues said that you'd be amazed at what kids grasp at this age. so even if he doesn't fully understand what you mean, he learns the language faster, etc etc.

and if you're lucky, by age 5, he'd be asking you what f.u.c.k. means! :P
May. 4th, 2004 09:14 am (UTC)
actually, we don't 'baby-talk' to him that much..I know he's very aware of us and our dialogues and sometimes, i can see he does understand what we're saying. And I know kids absorb and learn alot at this age..

For sore-throat, I drink 'saltish lime' water. It works for me. I bought it from Penang though I've seen it being sold here too but of different brand.

Aidan is still as cute n handsome as ever! :-)
May. 5th, 2004 03:05 am (UTC)
saltish lime water..hmm..never heard of it before *grin* can buy from supermarkets? Any idea what brand? I'm better now but i can try it the next time i kena :P

Dun worry unduly about him not talking yet, there will come a time when you will need to ask him to STOP talking *LOL*

As for you sore throat, rinse mouth with salt water and drinks lots of 'liang teh'/barley water/water melon or star fruit juice. Hope that helps.
May. 4th, 2004 10:02 am (UTC)
thanks..my throat is actually better after restin and drinkin heaps of water yesterday..

Oh i've been meaning to tell u..I didn't recognise u at the Robinson sale. When we looked at each other, i was like..darn..i know u..but i can't remember ur name and from where. That's why i was so blur for a while..And it was only after u left that I was like "Oh! That's Nicole's Mom!"..*arghh*..then i smsed June for ur no. but she emailed it to me instead *kuakua* hehe..
May. 4th, 2004 09:58 am (UTC)
don't worry...no rush ya? Afterall, they're growing up too fast as it is hahaha.
Well, you could plan to enroll him in some drama class...maybe it'll help make him more daring and more expressive.
May. 4th, 2004 08:31 pm (UTC)
I don't think they have drama classes catered for kids at such a young age..Probably from 3 yrs old onwards. But they do have enrichment classes which focus on music enjoyment or arts n craft which could be a form of expression for the kids. And yeah..i should prob sign him in one of such classes soon..

i must say that the flash on your camera is damn power! power aidan looks like he's some reindeer illuminated by the highbeam of an SUV...
May. 4th, 2004 08:33 pm (UTC)
actually, most of the time, Aidan has that 'blur' or TL look..flash or w/out flash...He's actually q immune to my camera flash liao esp since i take so many pics of him :D

Hey Angie,
I had the same problem with my weight, but I just started eating less and cutting back on the saod, and I've lost 8 poulnds these last 3 weeks...

Aidan may be like me when I was a little girl..I didn't speak till I was 5. Yes Five! :) Now my parents say, I cannot stop talking :)They want me to shut up sometimes :)
May. 5th, 2004 02:53 am (UTC)
wow 8 pounds in 3 weeks. That's very good! The problem is..I really don't have the discipline! I tell myself dun eat so much and to control my diet but my hunger & greed always get the better of me :P..
May. 4th, 2004 05:25 pm (UTC)
Aidan will talk when he's good and ready. He's probably too busy now discovering what's around him. :)

As for losing weight, I lost 4 pounds in just 2 weeks just by not eating snacks! You want me to get Break and Burn for you too?
May. 5th, 2004 02:54 am (UTC)
wait..so u lost 4 pounds coz of non-snacking or the B&B? U actually look slimmer too in the pics u'd posted. Mong says that she feels that her clothes r much looser now after a few weeks on B&B...

how much is B&B ah? Cant remember liao. Will try these pills for one month first to see whether it works hehe

Dayne is also doing that! he climbed up stools to get him to the table when no one's watching. Consider yourself good,only scolded Aidan, I spanked him!
Janice Dickson - I always thought she was a transexual leh! She looks so plastic!!!
May. 5th, 2004 02:57 am (UTC)
I smack aidan's bottom when he mess with the vcd player though..coz that's what i really want him NOT to do..

heh u are right. Janice Dick does look q like a transexual now..
May. 4th, 2004 06:53 pm (UTC)
Dominic also didn't really start talking in proper words and sentences until after 2 years. But now, I keep having to tell him "You are very noisy, darling!"

Enjoy the quieter days!
May. 5th, 2004 02:59 am (UTC)
heh i know. That's what everyone tells me.
Well, even if he doesn't talk..he is still q noisy with his incessant blabbering..I was hoping that I could understand him better i guess but prob in the future, i may wish that i dun comprehend him at all :P

Can't wait to see your li' one's pic soon! When is the ddate?

Ahhh, boys. They just slow, man. Stephen has just started talking more in his 20th month! More into boogie dancing, this kid of ours.

Hope the weight loss stuff works out for you so that you don't have to take the pills for too long. :P
May. 5th, 2004 03:00 am (UTC)
Yeah..I don't intend to take it for long. It's meant to be short term anyway. Doc said at most 3 months.

May. 4th, 2004 08:13 pm (UTC)
You know what.. Macy and Aidan are a perfect match! She is also babbling nonsense and her limited few words are: fish, book, mum mum, bird and wow wow.. But she is keenly aware of what is going on... and yes, her fixation with the DVD/VCD player to play her fav Hi5!

I am having a sore throat too.... bleah..
May. 5th, 2004 03:12 am (UTC)
wah..seriously jing tong yi nu :D.. Sekali like u n ur hubby like that..both blabber v well hehe..

eh u take care too man. Everyone's fallin ill. HK weather worse than singapore somemore..
May. 4th, 2004 09:42 pm (UTC)
Janice Dickinson looked great in her hey days! When she was jiggling her boobs in one of the episodes, I was grossed out! Come on! She knew, they knew, we all knew that she had many rounds of plastic surgery!

Boys take longer to talk. *pat pat

Take care!
May. 5th, 2004 03:21 am (UTC)
plastic surgery is such common practice in US..esp in the modelling and entertainment industry. But u know..i like her in ANTM..she's bitchy..I like! And her fave was Elyse in season 1.

<And for that, I had to scold & smack him each time he attempts to do it because I fear he may end up grabbing the vcd player or tv somehow and bring them crashing down.>

Our 3CD disk player also broke down eventually when Ethan (at abt 18mths) kept pushing the buttons and stuffing in 5 CDs at once!! It's only when it's totally spoilt & we took it away & he can't watch his cartoons then he understood.

<Aidan's still not talking much at 16+ months>

Kekeke.....when he starts talking real, u'd probably sometimes wish that the ground will open up and eat u alive!! Anyway, boys tend to start talking slightly later.

Hmm...besides taking pills, about trying Biotherm Abdo Choc? Heard it's quite effective for tummy.
May. 5th, 2004 03:24 am (UTC)
haha..oh man. At least Aidan hasn't gotten to the stage where he starts putting the vcds into the player.

Biotherm Abdo Choc? Does it have good reviews? will check the web but in the meantime, will try this pills for a month or so..hopefully, it'll work.
May. 5th, 2004 12:34 am (UTC)
guess that is just part of growing up process, kids tend to be curious abt everything thus they get pretty excited when they are able to reach things and see how they work...

so you are taking medication to shed some weight? Share with me on the results... i am also trying to slim down for quite some time but not much results for me leh.
May. 5th, 2004 03:28 am (UTC)
yeah i know kids are q inquisitive..that's there nature but gotta let aidan know firmly that certain things shouldnt be played with.

Heh..will let u know soon. I only started today so I cant tell u anytime soon..prob after 1 month.
