twinkle twinkle little star

Posted by twin on December 23rd, 2005

During the weekends or holidays when they kids doesn’t have to go to the nursery, the first thing they do when they go downstairs is to switch on the TV. This morning Princess decides that she wanted to watch a nursery rhyme cd. Since Darien doesn’t know how to talk very well yet, so I left the choosing to Denisha. While watching the twinkle twinkle little star song, Princess was singing along and acting out twinkle twinkle with her thumbs and fingers. I went over to have a look at them and I saw. Darien singing along (in a babyish language) and acting out the twinkle twinkle gestures with his thumbs and fingers. And from then on when I asked him how do you do “twinkle twinkle little star”. He’ll hold up his fingers and thumbs and start closing, opening, closing, opening .. on and on and on. Endless. When he was about 10 months old, the babysitter had told me that he’s already known how to do that. And there I was thinking she’s exaggerating. Hehe … bad mommy!

i’m a little jailbird!

Posted by twin on December 21st, 2005

Chubby boy with bulging belly getting ready for bed. This PJ suit (for 12-18mths) belongs to Denisha. This was the first time Boy’s wearing it. I remember Denisha could wear that until she’s about 16 months. Its a bit tight on him now. He’s growing way too fast.

Doesn’t he look very much like a jailbird??!

From the previous posting of Alone with Kids Episode II, to reward Daddy for his hard work those couple of weeks, we went to have a nice Japanese dinner buffet with Tok Family at the Marriot Hotel Putrajaya.

naughty naughty

Posted by twin on November 25th, 2005

While I was in the kitchen last night, I peeped out through the door to look at the kids. To my shock, Darien was on top of the sofa-bed. Gosh .. being panicky (afraid that he would fall down), I quickly rushed over to him and scolded him …. “Boy you’d better get down now. If not Mommy is going to punish you”. Then he gave me a cheeky smile and quickly got down from the sofa. I told him .. “That’s a clever boy”. And within minutes, he tried to do that again. And it goes on and on and on.

And again this morning while I was brushing my teeth, Boy walked in. Knowing that he’ll lift open the toilet seat-cover, I put my leg on top of it. And guess what he did. He lifted my leg off the toilet bowl and lifted up the seat-cover (toilet is clean). Really a cheeky cheeky Boy.

“ter” “ter”

Posted by twin on November 8th, 2005

Nowadays, Lil Darien is learning how to talk .. making out something that sound like a ‘word’. The other day, I was feeding him milk. After finishing it. He said “Ater”. And I thought I was hearing things and I hold up the bottle to him again and ask. “What is this Boyboy?” He said again “Ater”. I tried another time. And he said it again. Clever Boy! I was so excited. I shouted for Daddy to come into the room but as soon as Daddy came in, I asked him .. he doesn’t want to say it anymore. He must be thinking .. “Silly Mommy .. ask me so many times for what. I’ve been telling her so many times its water”. Hahahha.

He had been calling me ‘Mama’ since he was 6 months old. Whenever he cries and called for me .. my heart really goes all out for him. The funny thing … he still doesn’t know how to call Daddy yet. :)

1st Birthday

Posted by twin on October 24th, 2005

23rd October 2005:
Mommy and Daddy had a small birthday gathering for Boyboy at home. We invited Aunties, Uncles and cousins over. Everyone were having so much fun playing and screaming … like a children’s playground. Boyboy was walking and running after everyone there. He was so excited. After everything was over about 4 plus, Mommy prepared porridge for dinner. While eating, poor Boyboy was half asleep and Daddy had to gently wake him up to finish. Poor Boy! Right after the last spoonful, he fell asleep! Must be so tired from all the playing. Our Boy … 1 year old. How time flies. Now, he’s babbling a lot. Sometimes, it sounded like a word but maybe I was imagining it. Hmm .. dunno … :)

I’m walking … I’m walking

Posted by twin on October 10th, 2005

Lil Darien is walking more without much fall today. Whenever he walks, he’ll have that laugh on his face. Its cute when babies learn how to walk .. their stubby legs and bum swaying left and right. Eee …. soo soo cute. Its especially cute when you praise him. He’ ll have the happiest smile on earth .. like he’s seen a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Now that he’d almost mastered walking … he’s climbing on all kinds of things … gosh! boys are rascals. Don’t you all agree.
