I wish i can update stuff that we did each day (i reckon it'll get boring), but i don't have the luxury of time to. so i'll narrate with the photos. we did quite a bit of stuff last weekend and this weekend.
last thursday 31st july
went to Taka with my mil to check out the toy fair, buy some clothes for me & Eliza.
we went to Mos for lunch together...there was too many ppl at the food court and no high chair (i dunno..but i assumed) so we settled at somewhere convenient and with a high chair (nowadays it's so essential).
here's mummy letting Eliza touch the cold drink...it's quite fun for babies to play stuff like that. touch things they're not supposed to touch...
after that we walked around, i was looking for PJs for Eliza cos she was outgrowing hers and she's also short of long pants for nighttime sleep. (only 3..the rest are shorts a lot of them and we hardly use them). oh oh oh i bought swim suit for her, finally!! after weeks of searching...its $33 frm OshKosh BGosh and there's no % :( but still i saw it and i bought it...didn't really think and think and think whether to buy. she was sleeping thruout our little shopping (almost 2 hours!). and when she woke up she looked like this, looking at the people at the other table in Mac:
she felt a little feverish when she woke actually and i was worried she would be sick again. sigh!
checked out the toy fair...my mil put this for her to play cos it makes all kinds of sounds and when you turn the page, it has the 'flipping' page sound. it got Eliza all so excited (and good thing is that she didn't attempt to keep eating it), that my mil bought it for her.
my sil came to join us too, to buy toys for her 3 boys (ok..sponsored by my mil) and we got a ride home...thank God. else i would have taken a cab.
last friday 1 aug
went to Parkway cos daddy just wanted a breather and it felt like it was a long time since 3 of us has been out walking aournd. Obviously, how can daddy resist Borders? so we were there...
Eliza & I checked out the books in the children's section. i love their range of children's books and so does Eliza...got excited at every book i put on her lap (ok..she gets excited at every new thing i put on her lap)
and we saw Miffy! Miffy is her bedtime stuffed toy...i'm not sure if she has any attachment to it but sometimes she holds miffy's ears to sleep...other times she will wave it around and throw it away...or chew on miffy's arms and legs. once she was rolling around trying to sleep, and she saw miffy, crawled to it, held on to it's ears and eventually fell asleep.
here's Eliza checking out miffy.
and daddy checks out books while Eliza chew on her butterfly toys...
we went to Coffee Bean for coffee and Eliza for her milk and didn't have anywhere to go. so daddy suggested we walk to East Coast and it wasn't that far...and the walk was nice.
Eliza's also have a relaxing time, propping her legs up on her car and taking the view of the sea.
as we walked on...she started to doze off...being driven around...the sea breeze in your hair..it's just too condusive for a nap.this is her after we tried to lean her back when she dozed off...it woke her up. but she was insistent on wanting to check out her surroundings (i suspect she must be trying to keep her eyes open but sleep overcame her eventually...). we had to 'push her back to lean down to sleep..
this is how she'll drop off to sleep....
which she did eventually....
last saturday 2 aug
apples are fun fruits to play...you can grate them, give them in a slice, or as a whole apple it becomes a toy for your baby...this wasn't a particularly sweet apple and when i grated it Eliza wasn't too keen on eating. but when i gave a slice....she loves it.
this is Eliza with a sliced apple...
and this is Eliza with a whole apple...daddy is trying to clean her hair cos there was porridge stuck on it.
ahhh...i see what lies ahead of me...my mum taking photos of me...
and trying to get her to sleep is really not easy...even her bed is too exciting to sleep in. recently she has been doing this climbing and kneeling at her bedside...especially when she's looking for us. it's time to downgrade her! but because with the playpen aka her bed, once i remove the 2nd level it's very low and i can't reach her to pat her to sleep. so we lifted the mattress a little higher with more mattresses below.
after cgl cell, we went for dinner. we wanted to eat zhi2cha4 at the round market and as we moved towards the table to sit...we smelt kfc. it was so powerful we went there to eat eventually.
Eliza's trying to ask for more food. 'eh!'
(nah...she's just checking out the tissue paper that dropped on the floor)
yesterday thurs 7th aug
my mil & i made a short short trip to the metro sale at expo (with the help of Ww's dad driving us there at 230pm..and eventually driving us back at 430pm) there wasn't much, really. the borders book sale starts the next day..argh...missed it!
it was so boring Eliza fell asleep...
waiting for gong-gong van..Eliza doing her leg stretching activity...trying to get to somewhere else
friday aug 8
Angelia & Amos came to visit...Eliza and Amos saying hi. can't tell how old Amos is from here hor...he's almost a long (or tall) as Eliza! woohoo..he's growing really well! and Eliza was checking out his toes...wondering why it looks so much like hers.
after that Ww's parents and our lil family went to Suntec cos my mil wanted to stock up on coffee powder (but it was sold out!) went to the rooftop garden for a walk and got Eliza really interested in the rock fountain there...(lost all the photos taken here :S )
Eliza checking out her cousin's hair. pulling it and having fun :P this lil cousin of hers loves to hug her...he's really nice to babies...very sweeeet.
