Baby in Tummy

"Evan, what's in mommy's tummy?"
"Baby!" Evan responded. I was surprised he said that and it turned out to be true! Well, he also said that he has a baby in HIS tummy......nevertheless, there's indeed a baby inside me.... but not the tummy..... the womb. The home pregnancy test kit showed positive when i did the test after my period was late by one day. Now I am 5 weeks into the pregnancy and I've even dug out my old maternity clothes to wash and wear when the time comes. Larry & I have just started trying for our second baby but didn't expect God to answer our prayers so promptly! I've also booked an appointment to see my O & G : Dr. Raman at Fetal Medicine & Gynaecology Center but as usual he is fully booked! So, I will see another lady gynae instead. Been having lots of wind, bloating and nausea...... definitely different from my first pregnancy...... more on this after my medical check-up on 1st Nov.

This is the way Evan brushes his teeth

Evan has so far been co-operative with brushing his pearly whites. Phewwww! sometimes he enjoys brushing so much that he keeps on asking for more toothpaste and wants to brush again and again.... Here he's brushing with his Buzz Lightyear toothbrush in his room. Up till now, he has 14 teeth, another 4 molars expected within a few months. He has congenitally missing 2 lower incisors - just like mommy.... and mommy didnt noticed until kaima commented about his lack of teeth! Evan also loves to brush his teeth with daddy's electric toothbrush.

Puzzled over Puzzles

Evan turns 26 months on 18th Oct. Lately he has been doing some puzzles. I started him off with a Dora The Explorer 8-pc woodboard puzzle. No sweat - and he loves doing the puzzle over and over again. Then we progressed to a Mickey & Minnie Puzzle which i bought from Jigsaw Puzzle World. This time it's 20 pcs in a frame tray. this is one of his favourites. I bought another 2 smaller puzzles : 9pcs and 16pcs - Barney & Dora again. Evan also enjoys doing his Cookie Monster 20pcs frame tray puzzle. This puzzle is the hardest among all. I thought of keeping it till he's 3 years (as written on the puzzle for 3+) but since he's such a pro already why not let him have fun playing with it?

Love is in the Air

First up was a wedding dinner at Parkroyal Hotel. I dressed up Evan in a vest and bow-tie. The short pants that came together as a set was too tight for him so he wore this pair of corduroys instead. Dapper and smart! Before the wedding dinner, we drove to Pavillion nearby to check it out. Well, nothing to shout about but the place was very modern and spacious. Then we attended Dr Poon Joy Kwan & J'nie's wedding celebration.

Next up within the same week was Evan's Kai-Ma's(Godma) wedding dinner on October 7th. I dressed him up again in a black white Mickey vest (bought on ebay malaysia for RM10 - second hand) and a bow-tie (new from Bangsar Village). He also wore new shoes from Treehouse which I had bought a few months back in anticipation of a flurry of formal events like this one. The dinner was the BEST that i've ever attended in the sense that it started not too late, food was good, met up with lots of friends and the gu-zheng music was so entertaining and not jarring to the ears. Alan Tam was the gu-zheng soloist who performed that night. We also had him for our wedding 4 years ago and he could recognize us too! Congratulations Siok Keim and Min Wei!

This is Siok Keim - all decked up in bridal finery! She had her marriage registration done on 9th October followed by the Chinese custom of 'fetching the bride', tea ceremony etc. An eye opener for me because i didnt do any of that during my wedding. There were lots of photos taken but i only have this nice one in my camera..... what to do ...... got to keep an eye on Evan..... who happily jumped on Siok Keim's new bed. Will post the other photos as soon as I get them from Siok Keim. My brother Sau-Wern's wedding is up next......
