That's Jen, my sis-in-law on my right and me with my big-tummied Aidan

Hmm..recently, several people had commented that Aidan's pretty big sized..for his age that is..The best so far was terminalcase42's confinement nanny...When she saw Aidan, she asked me in mandarin whether he was 1 year old (ok, she said it in a way that i didn't understand - dui shuay or somethin..) I foolishly nodded my head without comprehending what she said until later, I had to clarify that Aidan was only 6 months old, not 1 year old..to which she exclaimed in Mandarin "Wah, very big and tall for a 6 months old baby. Can pass off for a 1 year old actually!"..

Weird....when I look at him, I don't figure him to be that 'big-sized'.. chubby yes but physically wise, I thought it was that of a 6/7 month-er...only thing that seemed to have gotten bigger was his rounded tummy (which his granddad insist, is a Lee Tradition)..I know for a fact from my aching arms that he has gotten heavier. Funny, I thought babies usually lose weight when they are sick. This fella gains pounds instead.

MIL with a blur looking Aidan who had just woken up from his nap in the car...
Sadly, this was the only pic taken at the zoo..after I snapped this, the red light blinked and battery was completely sapped..

We went to the zoo on Sunday morning ..with our parent in-law and brother in-law + family..Unfortunately, I left the switch on my cam on so when we reached the zoo, the battery had died so no pics *sob*.. Brought the video camcorder tho..The weather was great in the morning..really cooling so the walk ard the zoo was pretty nice..Aidan was of coz too young to be enamoured by the animals..he stayed in his stroller and lip-locked his cookie monster most of the time.

*sigh*..I still can't figure out how to transfer video images from the digicamcorder to the computer. I've got a panasonic digicamcorder and the software which they provided with it was a DV studio and a SD Viewer..read all manuals and faq many times but all they mentioned were the transfer of still pics instead of moving pictures *headache*..am I reading it wrongly or do I have the wrong software?? And yeah, any good recommendation where I can get a domain for storing video images too?

Token pics of Aidan :D..

A serious lookin Aidan..A goofy lookin Aidan ...
When Aidan smiles, his eyes becomes all slitty and small..

At play...

I have difficulty understanding the confinement lady as well. She's from Malaysia, and uses certain phrases which are not commonly heard locally. But yes, we found Aidan to be quite big for his age. Something in mother's milk?

The thing is..Aidan's actually only in the medium percentile..based on the paed's charts. Thats' why i never figured him to be big. So, there are actually other larger-sized, bigger tummied 6/7 month-er babies ard :D..

Heh..u will be surprised how many total breastfed babies come out really big, strong n healthy (Aidan is only partially bfed)..happyqile & chayhm's kids are just two such babies I know of..on the other hand, I also know of some formula fed babies who remain small & scrawny..so, when pple say bfeedin aint gd/enough for babies, you know it aint true..

Nice Pics
Hi Angelia,

The last 2 pictures look great. I don't know if you can remember me, I ask you about Live Journal over AP group, and you had sent me a reply via a personal email. I had just signed up Live Journal, but got problems posting, may I know what software you use to edit Journal, where did you put your pics... can advise me on this? Your help will be greatly appreciated!!!

hee.. im one of those who gain lots of weight when im sick too.. cos i eat alot more that usual when im sick.. hee.. but babies are always cuter when they're fat and chubby?right?!hee...
Jul. 14th, 2003 01:58 am (UTC)
Just wonderin, why is that ur name shows as anoymous on my comments page when u have an LJ? weird..

hee..well, I guess it depends what 'sickness' it is then..if it's somethin like stomach flu, eatin makes u sicker but if it's jus a simple cold, I tend to eat more too. Yeah chubby babies are cute but not 'obese' ones..I just wanna make sure Aidan doesnt get too fat :P

This is dh. Aidan looks so cute with his 'big' tummy, and also the last photo of his smiling. :) I find his eyes quite magical, it's like they can talk to you. When he is not smiling, he is like Anselm, pretty serious. I think babies exhibit similar behaviours.

As for capturing video from your digi-cam to PC, you need a capture card of some sort where you can plug in the cables from the cam into the PC. I think you should have that, right? If you connection is right, when you use the DV studio software, u shld be able to RECORD the video when you press the PLAY button at the digi-cam. U press STOP where u want to and shld be able to save the file as an .avi file or something. With that, u can upload the file for downloading in a website. I do not know of any site that could host video files for free, let me know too if you found one. I guess it will be difficult for them to offer such services for free, because the video file sizes are very big. That 15 sec video clip of Anselm 'swimming' is already 4.5 MB. Anyway, hope I have been of some help to u.

I think Aidan's eyes looks expressive becuz they are quite wet/teary most of the time (his tear ducts are not well developed yet)..Yeah, most of our babies exhibit similar behaviors and development wise, some are of coz slower or faster but sooner or later, they'll reach that milestone..I find Anselm pretty well developed for his age..He can sit up straight fairly early and he's really tall and toned for an almost 7 month-er..

Hmm..I actually realised that is a hardware (Pinnacle DV studio) that I've yet to install in my computer and that is probably what will help me transfer the video images into my computer (blur me)..the DV studio which I downloaded from disc is probably just for still images. Thanks anyway!!! Will test n try..

Just wondeirn, where did u upload ur video..even if it's that short. I'm am thinkin of gettin a paid domain actually since I probably will upload afair bit of videos..

if yours uses Firewire, then you can just transfer and use Adobe Premiere to do the vid stuff. wow tech savvy mom. hahah!

btw. doesn't breast milk contain vitamins, antibodies from the mom which pass immunity to the baby..etcetc...so its supposedly better than formula?
Jul. 14th, 2003 11:51 pm (UTC)
Yup yup yup, BM is the BEST!!
