We celebrated Destin’s second birthday at home. With a simple celebration, we decor the house and i cooked the vegetarian birthday noodle for him. We order gluten free chocolate cake for him and we took him for dinner together with the uncles and aunties to vmad restaurant. He was pretty excited to blow the candle. So happy to see this year my son is able to blow the candle, request to eat the cake lol, say a simple prayer like “thank you Jesus for everything”. Happy 2nd birthday our little man…may papa and mama be able to raise you as a good boy who is able to be blessing for others. Gbu dear.

The Joy of being Parents

Or should i say the pure joy of being parents. Littleman will be 2 in few days. Can’t believe how fast time flies away…where did those time’s gone? the day when i gave birth, when littleman was just a little newborn and the little baby. Those days when i was so worried about my milk supply, when he was chocked during the breastfeeding moment and the days when he refused to eat, or those days when he got sick and i felt so stressed…those days become yesterdays and when i looked back i wish i could tell the yesterday me to chill out…relax…those days would pass so so fast and everything was gonna be alright. That i should enjoy every moment because this too will pass.

We are so grateful that baby no 2 is a baby girl and doctor said my due date will be around mid of this june. i promise myself to enjoy each day now. To treasure the moment with my kids. Because this too will pass one day…at least when i look back i don’t regret anything. Maybe i’m not a perfect mom for them but at least i’ve tried my very best to raise them.

I am wondering how does it feel to have a baby girl? what will littleman’s reaction when he sees his lil sister? what does it feel to raise 2 kids? me and hubby have no clue at all actually but we believe this new phase can be as challenging and surprising as the first one too.

Thank you God for completing our family. Thank you for trusting us with another baby girl to raise. Thank you God for blessing us more than we deserve ♡

These few months littleman has been a mr.noisy 🙂 he is soo talkative and just can’t stop to talk. He always surprised us to say things we thought he didn’t know. This littleman is like a sponge now. As they said monkeys do what monkeys see, littleman will talk and act like what he heard and saw.  He spoke theochew and english at home and sometimes also speak a bit bahasa and mandarin. We don’t do it on purpose but i’m glad he is a fast learner in talking and understanding language.

He really enjoys playing with his toys…he loves puzzles and some books, especially the stickers books. He can mention and read A-Z and number or 1-20 since he was about 18 or 20 mos. Now he can recognize colors and recently he is so into the shapes.  Listening to songs and singing are his favourite activities too. Now that he can sing a song completely, even sometimes can make up and change the  words the way he wants to,  that we are so entertained by this lil entertainer. Our favourite time is every night when papa is home from the work and play together with him: playing toys together or sometimes read him some books. This can be the happiest moment for 3 of us 🙂

How grateful i am to have a very cooperative and loving caring husband like my hubby. He is a family man that doesn’t want to miss the chance to spend time with his family.

Toilet training is the new issue for him. I just started to let him learn not to use diaper anymore at home. Seems like this is going to take time since he’s type of kid that doesn’t bothered to have his pants wet since he was a little baby. I also take this opportunity to switch from disposble  diaper to cloth diaper. It’s better late than never right? I do feel guilty every time i saw my garbage bin was filled with many dirty diaper, especially since i read an article about how damaging is this disposable diaper for the environment. I just bought some imported and local brands and will try one by one until i found the one i really love to use for littleman and my second baby. Wish me luck 🙂
