My Mummy's Day Pt Deux..

People's been saying that Mother's Day is getting overly commercialised and thus the day seems less meaningful and more of a day for flower and chocolate shops to make heaps of moolah..Well, this year is my first Mother's Day and what the heck, commercialised or not, I was happy to be a mommy and that I had people celebrating it for me. I know pple say that everyday should be a Mother's Day andI one needs not wait till this very day to show appreciation to moms. But, I'm definitely glad for this day coz it gives my hubby a reason to be exceptionally good to the mother of his son. It's not that he usually isn't caring as a hubby/father but more that in terms of distribution of son-caring labour on weekends and holidays, it's kinda unequal still. So, when there is an opportunity to take advantage of such a day where your status as a mother is recognised and valued more than other days, why not!!

So..thank you dear hubby for the wonderful dinner last night and for letting me sleep through the morning and helping to feed/care for Aidan yesterday night and this morning.. , without coming to me when he pooped/peed or stuck his fingers down his throat which caused him to gurgle & choke. I know it meant that you had less zz time and lesser aliens to annihilate but I'm sure you had a great bonding session with Aidan hehe..

Slept the whole morning [alone] and part of the early afternoon with Aidan..I guess all those late nights reading LJ has caught up with me finally and I'm aching like crazy and having headaches.

We realised that Aidan's always an angel whenever we bring him out. When he took the taxi with me [to meet hubby at the hair-salon where he was gettin a trim], he was so gwai sitting on my lap, looking at the scenery and making cute li' cooing sounds. The only time he sorta growled was when the traffic light took a while to turn green coz he was probably bored with the same scenery..when the taxi driver moved on, he was happy again. He.flirted with Gigi, hubby's hairstylist at the salon, sat quietly wiith us while we sipped on iced chocolate n latte at a coffee joint, promptly slept in the carseat when the car moved on..and remained sleeping durin the start of our dinner so that we could tuck in our gruel and woke up on cue during his feed time...Can't help loving this li' bugger so much [now, if only he was always that gwai at home hehe..but I guess I shouldn't ask too much of him].

Mommy & Baby

The Lee family at (of all places to take a pix hehe) Supercuts!

That's Gigi, hubby's hairstylist who's this really cool chick..
Gigi has been cutting hubby's hair since he was in JC. Shesaid she'd practically seen him grew up..from a skinny li' boy to the bwee daddy that he is today :)

Havin coffee..The prince got to sit on a chair all by himself ....
Finally, smiling for the camera while his drool continued to flow..

A not-too happy Aidan coz he had to share the seat with me ..

The 3 mummies at the restaurant..That's Jess, my sis-in-law with her son, Chern Ern, my mom-in-law carrying Aidan
We went to Kublai Khan, this mongolian restaurant..we chose quantity over quality [dad-in-law picked the restaurant] since it was a buffet style place serving run of the mill food..

Re: WAhhhhh....
I used to bring him out with me when I go window shopping at the malls..that was before the Sars scare and after that, I try not to bring him out alone with me too often..
May resume that soon [will tell hubby walking's good for losing weight hehe]..

Yeah..KK is the one at parkmall..the food there was so-so only. Guess there were jus too many pple so the good food like the sashimi/tempura were snapped up immediately so had to wait a while for it to be refilled..

Man, my HTB is growing up to be a regular lady killer. Sigh. Looks like I'll have to start warding off all the unwanted female attention soon.
May. 11th, 2003 10:19 am (UTC)
And how are u planning to do that, may I enquire :D~

basket *kbish*

Yeah..he is still very tiny..that's what I always tell people. He looks bigger in my arms coz I'm small sized too but next to my hubby, he's miniscule~

did u shave Aidan? all the pix sooooooooooooooooooo nice! u look fabulous!
May. 11th, 2003 10:24 am (UTC)
nope..don't need to shave Aidan so far..he is naturally botak..in fact, his front hair is actually growing..it used to be balder..but I think he did drop a li' of his back hair tho I haven't seen much of it. Even after I bath him, I can hardly find any of his hair in the tub.

Heh..mummy definitely wanna look good on Mummy's Day :D..
May. 11th, 2003 10:32 am (UTC)
He's such a darling! I'm sure you're very proud to be a mother. :)

Noticed that he always clenches his fist.. Do all babies do that?
May. 11th, 2003 10:44 am (UTC)
yeah..now that u mentioned it, he does clench his fists pretty often..tho I'm not sure whether all babies do that..

I guess I dun notice it coz he's always grabbing my hair, sucking his fingers and throwing away the hanky which I'd stuffed into his shirt collar..

Ryan clenches his fists a lot too - esp when he's feeding, he sits up & clench both fists & juz suck, suck, suck ... like very hungry & deprived ... until he's half-way through his bottle, then he seems to relax ... Grabbing my hair, sucking fingers, clenching his fists, pulling out whatever that's around his neck ... sama sama baby things they do lah ...

Hey, juz wanna comment that Aidan look so "ta-ren" in the 5th pix where he's sitting alone in that sofa ... so much like a toddler - so Aidan has really grown ...

How's the feeding of solid coming along?
His poo shld be more solid & no more watery. Ryan loves
his cereal, & his poo is like plasticine - not sure good or bad, will check with PD.

Re: Sama sama
Feedin of solid is no problem..Aidan like Ryan loves to eat/drink..so it's always a breeze , especially since he loves to have things in his mouth :P..

His poo is still a li' watery but the good thing is the frequency has lessened. Now, at most, he poops twice a day *phew*..
I think it's normal for a baby's poo to become harder, esp with a change in diet to solids. Sometimes, baby's may get constipation becuz of it too so u just have to monitor Ryan..

Aidan is so adorable..
and your mother-in-law looks young hor.
May. 11th, 2003 09:27 pm (UTC)
Yeah..mom-in-law's really looks after herself well. She's been watching what she eats and goes for facial/manicure regulary.
She's 60 this year u know :)
I hope I can look as good as her at 60!
May. 11th, 2003 09:40 pm (UTC)
you will lah!
May. 11th, 2003 08:10 pm (UTC)
eh... your Aidan dress like that looks like a real big boy... really cute man!
May. 11th, 2003 09:28 pm (UTC)
Actually, I dressed him that way yesterday so both our outfits will be a li' alike..
ya..he does like like a li' adult :)
May. 11th, 2003 09:37 pm (UTC)
i realise that you only tilt your head that way in pictures coz of your hair.
May. 11th, 2003 11:14 pm (UTC)
Yeah lor..that's what I told Nic & Ash..
Coz my fringe too heavy so mus tilt that way to let it outta my face :P~
U hv long fringe too so u should know, tho i guess u usually tie up ur hair *grin*
