"Sticky" 37 months old & "Bravery" 8 months old

It's more easier for mummy to blog milestone of our 2 little ones at the same time as their birth date only 4 days apart. So, basically, as of today...

En En is 37 months and 5 days old


Weight: 15kg (before hospitalized, she was 15.6kg with rosy cheeks!)
Height : Unsure


Basically the same, still refuse to chew on rice! Eat fish porridge the most, sometimes alternate with pork and chicken or 3 together! (Super nutritious...) Normally we just add in variety of vegetables on alternate days except BROCCOLI as it is a banned vegetable for the family.

Lately not sure why she started to refuse milk, she will take in half a bottle, 4-5oz the most then daddy or Ah Mah got to finish for her. Maybe it's time to change new taste?

Potty/toilet Training

She is progressing good as she started to request not to wear disposable diaper at night. We just afraid she won't be able to wake up after sleep and wet the bed. There were times mummy stayed alert till 1 or 2 am just to bring her to sit on potty. Well, that's the time to pee.

It's quite relieved when we hear she scream or talk louder saying :" I want shee shee (pee)..." at least she's not just cry and let you guess what's wrong with her at midnight.

Behaviour Issue

After this incident, En En now stick to Ah Mah like a glue because Ah Mah looked after and accompanied her in the hospital every night. During that period we tolerate her, gave her what she wants and followed exactly how she wants things to be done. Well, it's pampering her as she went through such a heartache and pitiful injections with too many crying and yelling. We just want her to calm down and forget that unhappy moment in the hospital.

She is becoming too much nowadays as she uses screaming and crying as a method to get what she wants now. She is not only scream and cry like normal but her terrible way to express herself made all of us feeling to whack her as much as possible! She doesn't care what's right or wrong and cry like a mad person non-stop plus screaming as if she had been abused by us!

She refused to bath, refused to change clothes, refused to eat, refused to drink milk,... she's doing everything that's oppose to what we said! Lately, she's addicted to Astro PHDC programme and even asked Ah Kong not to switch her channel or else she will start to cry till you get along with her way! She only favour Ah Mah to do everything or anything with/to her which we all think it's ridiculous and too much!

Suddenly En En turns into a little devil in the family... compare to friendly Baby Zheng, she's too "sticky" to handle as she only glue to Ah Mah day and night... However, we still persuade her sleep with mummy, daddy and DiDi at night even there were times that she cried for Ah Mah during midnight.

Mummy wonders whether it's time to let her go to kindy?

New experiences / achievements

1. Brush teeth on her own with toothpaste

2. Take off her shirt with two elbows "slot" in the lower part of the shirt then pull up higher and higher... Mummy taught her this one! So proud~ :)

3. Discovered fun to lock / unlock the door

4. Will say "Sorry" if she accidentally hit on something BUT not SOMEONE!

Zheng Zheng is 8 months and 1 day old


Weight: 8.1kg (after meal, it's 8.2kg!)
Height : Definitely grew taller

No teeth yet!


Baby Z is a "dustbin", LOL! He can't help himself whenever he sees someone is holding a cup, a bowl or chewing. He sure will approach you and make his grumpy noise so that he can get a taste of food/drinks. After that, he won't leave and will even ask for MORE! Never stop with just one time of tasting...

Eat 3/4 bowl full of porridge 2 times per day which alternate with pork or chicken or both. Fish is given separately started a few days ago.

Breakfast sometimes will be Mee Suah, wholemeal bread with warm water/bm, Weetabix (wheat biscuit) mix with baby biscuit in warm water / bm.

Still on breast milk througout the day, feed on demand. Nap and sleep will look for longer suckling. Reject milk bottle totally as he think it's a toy! :) Therefore, we need to spoon feed him EBM, water, soup, or anything liquid.

Basically mummy let him test on new food in small pieces every now and then as he is so interested in food. How mummy wish he has teeth to try all the food. He has breakfast, breast milk in between before lunch, then bm for nap, tea-time (smashed fruits with wheat biscuit, baby biscuit, bread, small pieces of cream crackers dipped in choco-malt that mummy takes,...), bm, dinner, bm and supper before nen-nen again.

Motor Skill

1. He's crawling so well and fast too! Started to crawl at 6 months old, able to switch sides - front to back, left to right by 7 months while sitting.

2. He's learning to stand and able to move the legs in or out from the original location.

3. He's able to squat down from a standing position with one-hand supporting on chair / desk.

4. He's able to climb up staircase without any help with one hand pulling on the grills. He is yet to master how to go down...

5. He's able to grab food with his palm and fingers and send into the mouth.

6. He's able to get out from the walker starting with one leg up to the seat follow by the next leg! He has powerful arms that once he grabs / leans on some surface that's almost the same level of the walker you'll find his upper body already climbing out towards the flat surface... SCARY!!!

7. He's able to claps his hand when we ask him to do and able to close/open his palm as to do Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars.

8. He loves to move his butt front and back when he's happy and along with music! Happy cute baby!

Other developments

1. He can recognised his name whenever we call him.

2. He knows it's time to look up for light when mummy said "Light, light"

3. He will PRETEND to cry when he refuse to sit on highchair after meal by making crying voice with blinking eyes (to see whether we notice him or not) or when he wants to come out from walker.

4. He started to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with En En jie jie and stay "stone"... so young to watch TV...

5. He will turn up and crawl away if he refuse to nen-nen for sleeping very quickly.

6. He knows when it’s time to go kai-kai and will crawl faster towards the door whenever he sees anyone use the key to open the door.

7. He won’t go to sleep if Jie Jie is awake or talking. He loves to be part of Jie jie playmate by snatching whatever toys Jie Jie is having even we gave him other toys.

8. He knows when it’s time to hold on something firmly if he ever feels insecure e.g: mummy’s shirt, mummy’s HAIR (Ough!) when he’s high above on mummy’s shoulder…

9. He's yet to speak but just baby talk... the most we can hear from him is "nen-nen", "mum-mum" and good news is he's starting to follow the sound of a single words that we repeatedly speak to him.

It's great that Bb Z's a "dustbin". Much easier to take care of food lovers. ;) And he's one strong bb.

lovely kids...
my 3 yo didn't scream much when she is awake, but throw tantrum and cry during her sleep which also left me clueless lately...

After i read "the incident", i understand why En En behave that way, she must has been traumatized by the hospital, where you weren't there when she needed u most. I think it's kind of "trust", "security" that she is losing from you...

have u tried having a one on one time with En En? spend time with her and have fun together without Didi?
