Happy 19 months

My baby turns 19 months today. 

The little miss curious. She's curious about everything, especially when we are out and about. Stressful when we are instores as she just swipes and pulls stuff. Learning stuff quickly too. And the mammy always "teach" her the weird stuff. "Alamak" with the hand on her head and saying "mak" and yesterday she learnt "aiyoyo" and laughed at how funny the word sounded. We have to be careful of what we say in front of the kids. They learn really fast. 

Same problems as the last and the previous x months. Josie needs to eat more. There are improvements, but not gaining weight, which got the doc worried at her 18mth da. 

Last month she had hives which got us worried as we didn't know what that was. She is still having it on and off especially in this heat. Sometimes they weren't itchy, but some were so itchy that she had such bad scratches from her vigorous scratching. The spots always change location and will disappear then reappear again. Heartache. 

Love you baby. Jiayou!

The Scary Trio

Today's amazing encounter. 

We were on our way down for the usual morning walk. So we were waiting for the lift and standing like 3-4 steps away. Latte was stoning behind me and not doing his usual sniffing around. Then I realise Josie was too near the lift, so i bend forward to take her hand to pull her nearer too me. At the same moment, the lift door open. 

Then the person inside the lift screamed. 不要进来! (don't come in)

I looked up and saw an elderly woman pointing her umbrella at us like we are some robbers. 你们不要进来! 我的心在跳! (You all don't come in! My heart is beating!)

Feeling the anger rising up. I told her 我们没有要进去。你下去。(We are not getting in. Go down. ) and she closed the door and went off. 

Usually we will take the next lift when we see people inside. I didn't even have time to see if there's anyone inside and she was screaming away. And today Latte was such a good boy, not in a chionging mode when the door open. None of us were moving when the door open. At most is me pulling Josie to my side. 

We took the next lift down and upon reaching downstairs, she was complaining about us to someone. I don't know what she told him/her/them, I only heard her say 我的心在跳 (My heart was beating). Sigh. Most probably we were thought of the worst by her listener. 

Annoyed, I took the kids away to the other direction opposite of her. Then after one round. She was still seated at our block's bench. Then she shouted in cantonese which I don't understand what she said. We were outside of the block, next to the road, so we were pretty far away from her. Too far for Latte to do anything to her. I just smiled, ignored and continued with what we need to do. 

Annoyed ttm!! Kenna complained for waiting for a lift. Arrgh. 

Anyway it's not the first time we encountered such exaggerated reactions. Mainly women. 

I am glad Latte has no aggression towards umbrellas. I can't imagine what would had happen. And I hope Josie doesn't understand what had happened. Negative teaching. 

Sighs. Really. What's so scary about this big nose baby?

Happy Mother's Day!

My second mother's day with the little girl. Thankful to be her mom, thankful to be my mom's daughter. 

Dinner out with my mom and my family. As usual, it's the zichar nearby. We managed to get a table, but the wait for the food was...... Waiting and waiting. And it was soooo sweating hot. 

The hubbs drove me to get cakes earlier on before dinner. I had been meaning to eat the cakes from Châteraisé for a long time. They have such pretty and cute cakes! And they are delicious! Soft, fluffy, yummy. 

It's another commercialised day. The hubby bought a gift. A new camera that's waterproof and shock resistant. Good to use around a toddler lol. Love the hubbs who can "read" my mind. I need something like for the little girl's swimming sessions. 

It has a very rugged feel. I guess that's what it needs to give an all rounded protection. 

Happy mother's day to all mothers.
