the young and the restless~


Male Bonding~


Brought Aidan to another session of Little Gym in the morning....The regulars of Little Gym which comprised of Lilyhappyqile,Clare chayhm, June bbhome and Gwynnekoalababy and their babies were there so I was with good company. I do prefer LG compared to Gymboree ..have made up my mind to sign up for it and hopefully, the other mummies are intending to sign on another session..

Went shopping abt town after that when ashleyneo joined us..I have to say I'm amazed by the stamina of June & Gwynne, who were slinging their 9kg babies in their sarong slings as we walked from Forum Galleria to Paragon..Both I and Ashley took the easy way out by bringing our strollers along..Aidan was poofed after the workout at Little Gym so he slept a fair bit while we shopped..

We had quite a fun time at the Takashimaya Baby Changing/Nursing Room..where we let our babies sit by themselves on the changing cubicles while us mummies looked on and started snapping pics of them as they play and interacted with each other..June's Ryan was the most hyper - jumping about and attempting to stand, grinning and wanting to make friends with all the babies..Ashley's Tiffany was the only gal amongst the 3 boys so she was the centre of attraction..and Gwynne's Evan was rather solemn most of the time..tho he did hugged Aidan a couple of times :)

Oblivious Aidan as Ryan makes his move on Tiffany...

Girls are so fickle..*sigh*


More pics here ( together with those taken at Little Gym ) and at bbhome's LJ..


Had my golf session in the evening and when I'm back home and I was aching a little when I was practising my strokes..Probably overdid it a li' during the morning LG..
-----------------------------------------------


Everything about this year feels special to me...and we seem to celebrate li' occasions even more..and I have to say the main reason is because of the inclusion of the wee one..

The last few years as DINK were fun but I have to admit, our way of life didn't change drastically after we got married as we were already staying together for a while before we got hitched so we were used to each other's chaoquan-ess..It was really no different from the days before we were married..

But with the arrival of Aidan, our lives have changed...and for once, I feel really truly married because of this li' one whom we brought to this world..As I'd said before (yeah it's a clique), he makes us feel complete..

Birthdays are seriously not a big deal for both of us..we do give presents and all but I guess it's usually sorta a routine thingy. But this year..it's different and to a certain extent more meaningful (like how I felt abt Mother's Day/Father's Day/Valentine's Day )..And I'm so looking foward to his birthday, Aidan's birthday & Christmas Day :) It's all because it's our first year together as a family :) ♥

Gah..I should stop being so mushy!! It's just not me!

It's kinda interesting to observe that even at such a young age, babies already start to exhibiting their individual character traits. Aidan seems to be the cool, calm and collected type ... although his questionable hand activity with little Tiffany in the last pic might earn him an earful if he were older. Hahaha!

Erm, I think I was more like Ryan as a baby. Can't tell right? LOL!

I felt the same way too after charlene was born. The li'l one completes the family.

I totally agreed with you on the li' one completing the definition of a family. Mine is quite simliar to yours, my hubby and I dated for quite a while (abt 6 years), before getting married, we're also very used to one another liao. Li' one lets us see the new direction as a family, rather than couple. Since this is your first li' one, everything is even more so special.

Looking at all the fun the littles one had with one another, I am so envy all of you. Poor Caleb, just had to play with BS. BTW, when are you all going again? Can I join in for once?? You know.. male bonding ;)

Yeah..I really wonder how it would be like if I have no. 2 tho..whether this feelin is just coz it's a novelty..Hope not :D..

Heh..the regulars I mentioned are usually at LG every Saturday..I think they were there that Thursday becuz the missed their session the Sat before. Am not sure when I'm going down again, most prob after my holiday but I'm sure u can arrange to join the other mummies. Am sure Caleb would be happy playing with the other li' ones :)

wonder what the babies are saying....
Indeed to spend special times with special people around you is irreplacable...something that money can't buy.

Jul. 24th, 2003 09:07 pm (UTC)
Yeah..at times I really wonder whether they understand each other coz it does look as if they do..
I agree..but the finding that special someone is sometimes the difficult part..I hope u will one day.

Aidan looks good in that outfit...what do they do in LG ?
angeliatay
Jul. 25th, 2003 12:27 am (UTC)
heh..can u believe..I bought him the same outfits..just that it's a larger size. Can help it lah..cant find much black baby stuff ard :D..

Basically, during these gym session, kids will be encouraged to enjoy motor development and rhythmic activities, group games, tumbling, movement, exploration, songs, ball play etc etc..according to their age..So like now, Aidan's starting to crawl...the activities will be catered towards that though some in his class are already raring to walk already coz the age group is from 6-12 months :)

but it's much more tiring for the mummies coz we usually support them while they do the activities

heehee, the last pic looks like Aidan is measuring Tiffany with his hands..."hmmm that's size 2 for jumper"

I have lotsa frens who still like being DINK, most are afraid of the committement from the child. My cousin commented that she can't even take care of herself well, let alone a child. My response is that child bearing to taking care comes naturally for mothers so anyway, prob their maternity instinct has not surface.
How did you decide to finally pop the baby?

hiaks..I thought the last pic looks as if he was 'molestin' poor Tiff :P..

I agree with you..caring for babies seem to come naturally to us women..I mean, I was a total klutz and someone u wont associate motherhood with but after having Aidan, I was astonished at how strong my maternal instincts were..Honestly, the part abt afraid of commitment from child is just an excuse for all who doesnt wanna have kids yet..

Erm..the baby was unexpected tho we were happy that he came anyway :)
