of mice and eyes~

We didn't actually get him a pet of coz..just a new toy, a stuffed rodent to be exact. I'd bought it from Ikea this afternoon. It was real fugly looking mouse (rat?) and when I left it on my tabletop at work, some of my colleagues actually squealed thinking that it was real. Hiaks..

Gave it to the li' one when I reached home. He was having his apple and the first thing he did was to feed the mousey-one a slice of fruit. A while later, he decided that the rodent could be thirsty and let it have some of his water. Of coz we played along with him :)

It's always so amusing to see the antics of our little ones..:)

Oh, he brought his new pet to sleep with him together with his 2 piggies :)
Here's a Video of Aidan with li' mousey~

One slice for mousey~

One slice for me *yumyum*

Drink up!

I had a few comments that Aidan's eyes seemed to be getting bigger! I don't know, it looks abt the same to me..actually, I thought they'd gotten smaller since he's grown :P

Anyway, I've always considered Aidan's eyes (together with his eyelashes) to be his best features. They are so bright and luminous (I'm biased ;P) His eyes are quite unlike mine or ahbang's..ours aren't that round and big..

Well, I've got something to confess. When I had Aidan and was still in the hospital, my group of pals, including Corrina visited us during X'mas Day (Aidan was born on the 23 of Dec). I had to stay on longer in the hospital coz Aidan had jaundice and needed to be hospitalised. I didn't wanna leave him even though they'd discharged me therefore I'd rented the studio aptment in the hospital so that I could be with him whenever he needed me plus that I was trying to fully breastfeed him then.

Anyway, Aidan@ a few days old naturally looked nothing like what he does now of coz . His eyes were small, squinty and looked like slits even though they were opened. While chatting with Corrina who had then given birth to her Chloe abt 6 months ago, she mentioned that there was a method to make our babies eyes' bigger. I was curious and eager to learn how it was done. She lowered her voice and whispered to me "Lick the eyelids of your baby!" She had to repeat it twice 'coz I wasn't sure I heard it right the first time. I was like "Eeeeeee! So grossss~!!!!" (yeah, typical reaction). She swore that it worked for her (Chloe), and her friend, and her mom's friend friend. And the trick is..that you gotta do it within the first few days after the child is born. "Sure or not" I thought to myself.."Errr..no way am I gonna do that!" I muttered!

That night, I gazed at the li' one sleeping soundly against my bosum after a feed and uttered to myself "Oh what small eyes you have, my baby.." And there and then, I made up my mind. What the heck!? No harm trying right..And the next moment, I was licking away. I actually licked each eyelid twice for insurance and hoped that the bugger won't get sore eyes as a result of my craziness.

Well, old wives tales or not..it worked. Well, maybe he was meant to have big eyes but we'll never know eh. I'd never thought of myself as someone who would act on superstition or old wives tales.. I showered and washed my hair on the very day I had Aidan and didn't take confinement food nor any of those bu stuff. I gave away all the Doms and birds nest pple gave me and snuck out of my house a week after the delivery to have my hair colored and styled. But just coz I wanted Aidan to have bigger eyes, I'd actually listened to the wise words of Corrina.....

So what do you think? Would you do what I did?

This is one of my fave pic of big-eyed Aidan
when he was 7 months old :)

I never know this! I wouldn't do this... I would rather "talk" to my future baby while it's still in the stomach to be healthy and good looking. Ha!
Apr. 25th, 2005 03:15 pm (UTC)
heh..i did talk & sing to Aidan alot when he was in my tummy..I tried to remain cheerful n calm tru out my pregnancy so that he become a happy boy (so they say)..but i didn't drink any birds nest tho hehe..

i've heard before that when you trimmed (? cut?) the eye-lashes of the baby when he's 1 month old, he'll have long and pretty lashes!
Apr. 25th, 2005 04:24 pm (UTC)
yeah..i heard that one too and that seems to work for many. I didn't do that for aidan coz he had very sparse eyelashes initially and it suddenly grew when he was a li' older.

I think it's the same theory for hair too..that the more we cut, the faster(thicker) it will grow. Seems to work for leg (& armpit *coff) hair too unfortunately :P

i think my mum didnt try any of those. she didn't lick or trim my eyelashes. no wonder i've such tiny eyes that disappear when i laughed too hard.

yeah, i love his eyes and his signature pout! makes me wanna kiss him. hahaha

Sounds gross to me! But since it did work for a few people, I think we're gonna have quite a few more eye-lid lickers from now. :p

Your son feeds his mouse, my son feeds his trains! Kekeke.
Apr. 26th, 2005 12:49 pm (UTC)
hah? serious ah? hahaha. Aidan likes trains too but not that much!
Apr. 25th, 2005 05:13 pm (UTC)
Oh you superstitious woman you!

Apr. 26th, 2005 12:50 pm (UTC)

Apr. 25th, 2005 07:41 pm (UTC)

Apr. 26th, 2005 12:55 pm (UTC)
heh but we cant have too many big-eyed pple walking ard right? then everyone will look the same :P
Apr. 25th, 2005 07:44 pm (UTC)
I would do that! *ahahhaaha*

My mum shaved off my brows when I was a baby and I've got really neat brows now... I just started trimming it to make it look more defined. Else I can go without trimming them too!
Apr. 26th, 2005 01:56 am (UTC)
Wow so newborns must trim their eyelashes and get their eyebrows shaved and whatever hair that need to be curly! LOL!!

I love that 7mth pic of Aidan, it's always one of my favs, so chubby and cuddly then hor!

*I'm going to try the licking trick on Trinity :D no harm right?*

My first maid taught me this age-old Indonesian thing that they do - they trim the newborn baby's eyelashes. Apparently, the new growth will be longer and curly.

Ethan was too old for it when she came but I remembered and tried it on Elliot. Maybe I'm really biased but I think Elliot's lashes are definitely the longest and curliest in the family now. I'm waiting for Trinity to open her eyes so that she can give Elliot a run for his money LOL!

Apr. 26th, 2005 11:47 am (UTC)
heh no harm no harm! You gotta see the comments by Corrina at the bottom. Gotta follow a certain style somemore..I'd forgotten abt that.

The trimming of eyelashes is true Ithink. It helps to stimulate hair growth. I didnt do it on aidan coz he had v sparse lashes initially and i 'bu se de' trim but when it grew long n curly, i lagi bu se de :P
Apr. 25th, 2005 11:55 pm (UTC)

Just to clarify, both M&M's eyelids were not licked.
Apr. 26th, 2005 01:25 am (UTC)
your 2 M&Ms eyes are naturally big lah! Coz u n ahbang got beeeg eyes..unlike us :P
Apr. 26th, 2005 12:21 am (UTC)
so Aidan loves Mr Rat. Ryan has named his "Milo" !

Never heard about that story else I'll be licking my son's face !!
Apr. 26th, 2005 11:45 am (UTC)
heh aidan not so creative. When he saw it, he said 'mouse'..so we'll just keep it as mouse!

heh..I think Ryan looks cute as he is lah, even with small eyes coz his lashes are sooooo long!
