Soupy Experience

Can see this little babe drinking? She’s enjoying her soup! My Mom took her time and stew her some soup every week. She really enjoys it. She loves experimenting new flavours besides Momma’s milk.

She really loves soup! Just like us! Even Hubby is affected by me! He loves my Mom’s soup! My Mom told me drinking soup will improves one’s skin condition. Baby’s skin is fair and has rosy cheeks just like me!

This entry is posted and I hope to let Lynnie know about this very important person in my life…my 阿嬷.

We went to 光明山 early on sunday morning to pay our respects to both my 阿公 and 阿嬷. It has been 10 years and 9 years since they left us respectively. How I missed them!

Every year, I would have lots to ‘say’ to my 阿嬷 whenever I pray to her. However, this year, I said NOTHING! Not because I do not have anything to say to her, but because I have so much to tell her, by the time I finish, it would have been the next morning! Therefore, I kept everything in my heart and hope she understands my thoughts.

Anne, my second sis was with me when I went to the ash tower and pray (others had prayed and waited outside beacause my babe needs her milk, therefore, I went in later). Anne was looking at me when I prayed as I was the only one who crys evens after so many years without her.

The misses I had for her were non-replaceable by words. Whenever I miss her, I would take a pen and a piece of paper, sit down in a corner of our study room, pen my thoughts down quietly. After writing, I would fold the piece of paper and keep them in my drawer. Today, I shall write down my thoughts here.

“阿嬷, 清明节又到了. Today, I am a wife to my Hubby and a Mommy to my baby girl.

I still regret not going down and see you for the last time the night before you pass away! I hate myself for that! Still, I do nag at you failing to fulfil your promises to me at times.

You promised to live and see me get married, have kids before leaving me. Why didn’t you do so? Why leave me just like that? I can still remember your stories, your love and your everything! I love you more than I love my Mom and Dad. My love for you is no lesser than any of your sons and daughters. I know you love me just as much, if not, you won’t call me at 8+ in the night to ask me down and accompany you! How silly I am not to understand your words!

I know you will be so happy to see my baby if you are around. She is a very active baby, loves listening to music, watching news and shopping. I believe you will love her the same!

阿嬷, do you know I miss you alot! I hope to see you more in my dreams!

Chinese New year has past, on every Chinese New Year’s Eve, I would think of the very last CNY eve that I spent with you! Just the two of us!

It was our first new year without 阿公 and all others has left home to pray for the oncoming year. You were left alone and I was the only one to stay and accompany you. I remember you telling me despite having so many children, the one who can accompany was me, your grand-daughter. We cried together. The misses we had for 阿公 and the loneliness you felt. Nonetheless, you left us in that year. Leaving me to grief over your demise.

Everyone knows that we were very attached to each other. They will always check on me during your wake. I would weep silently during the chanting sessions and whenever I am alone. You left me. Leaving me to face the world alone. Leaving without a word. 阿嬷, I miss you! I miss you so much! I told myself umpteen times that time will wash away my grief, I was wrong! I still grief over your demise till today.

Can you see me from above? Bless all of us can?

Good health for all, good luck for all, good results for those studying (Kiong Kiong, Desmond, Dennis, Ah girl, Terese, Madeline, Edison, Xiuying, Shiying, Jia Jun, Jia Ming, Cheng Cheng, Mei mei, Ernest, Erwin, Marcus and many other little ones).

Does this picture looks like Winnie the Pooh? When Hubby first saw this shot, he exclaims in excitement “This looks like Pooh bear right?”

I leave the jurisdiction to you folks. You will be the judge and tell me whether does this picture looks like Pooh Bear or not!

Isn’t this cute? This was her very first trolley experience! We took her to Sheng Siong at Ten Mile Junction on Friday night and my Dad suggested putting her on the trolley. She loves it!

See, she will scan the environment around her, see our reactions and she’s a happy baby on the trolley! Smart of her to hold the handle at the trolley as well! She’s so cautious!

This uncle is my 大伯公. He wanted to take a picture with me for remembrance. He told my Mommy that he used to carry her when she was a baby, and now, he’s carrying me!

Time really waits for no one!

Near Drowning

Sweetie was nearly drowned on saturday! Who’s the culprit? Unfortunately. it’s me.

I have been bathing her for about 2 months and should be quite expert in bathing for her. I started letting her sit still in the bath tub and wash her hair, pouring water down from her head (don’t worry, most baby shampoo don’t sting their eyes), washing her face by splattering water on her face…blah…blah…blah…

Do not think that I am trying to display any new stunts while bathing for her (I have no guts). Lynnie was squirming around while I was trying to bathe her on that very ‘fateful’ day.

The usual bathing regime happens and on that saturday, she was trying to roll-over while I was soaping her petite body. Of course with the soap and water, her delicate body became so slippery. I had to hold her tighter as not to let her drown. While I was trying to clean her left arm, she turn over and “Whosh” she nearly drowned! My heart stopped for the split second and looked at my poor girl “OH! Baby, see la, Mommy ask you to keep still, see….aiyo…” I quickly bathe her as I expected her to snivel. “Hmm…she didn’t cry wor, neither is she shocked by what happened just now” I thought to myself. Lynnie was happily kicking the water and ‘beating’ the water with her hand and smiling as though nothing has happened!

Hubby was with me, I recited to him about the incident and told him I was freaked out by the incident, but why wasn’t she? Guess it’s time for her to go for her swimming classes!

After bathing her, Hubby and I scrutinize our little babe trying to see whether is she hurt in anyway from the scary incident. Thank goodness! She’s still fine and well and in one piece! Phew!

Up till now, there is still this trepidation about bathing her while she’s squirming. I should try to overcome this fear since my baby still enjoys it while I bathe her!

Mei, a lazy Mommy friend of mine, was asking about whether is Lynnie beginning to identify and recognise me aka her Mommy.

To clarify, Mei and I had no feud, the reason I say that she’s lazy is because she refuses to start a blog for her lovely Francesca and Frances (hope I got it right!). She is a SAHM and is expecting her Frances in July.

Let’s get back to the topic. Mei was telling me about the bond Francesca has for her as compared to the love for Daddy Loy. Francesca would prefer Mommy to put her to sleep instead of Daddy, feed her instead of Daddy, even singing, reading, dancing and every little thing, she would prefer Mommy to do it with her rather than Daddy. Reason? Simple! Mei is the pillar of her life!

Mei was sharing Francesca would always tell people “I love mommy more!” and when asked about Daddy, she would reply “I love Mommy more than Daddy!” How sweet of her!

My Lynnie has yet to talk sense, all she knows was “ah”, “mm”, “ang-gee”, “aiya” and all the baby language. I do see a bond building up between us! She loves me singing, kissing, bathing her, nursing her (of course it’s me, who else??!!), change her, dress her up and YES, I’m not kidding!

Whenever I say “Come, Mommy kiss!” she would turn to her right and after I smooch her, she would turn to her left, offering me the other cheek! She does this for me exclusively! Not even Daddy has this priviledge. She is slowly learning to let Daddy kiss her, but she still displays some reluctance at times!

If she wants to kiss the person carrying her, she would open her mouth and lean towards you. Just present your cheek and she will give you a peck! For me, she would just lean over and kiss me on my lips! How sweet!

“Bi, how come she always cry when I try to change for her? But when you change for her she doesn’t cry??” Hubby would always lament whenever baby cries while he’s trying to put on her clothes. Well, I have no idea as well! Haha! Guess it’s a way baby shows her affection for me! That is why, Hubby hates changing for her! But I have no choice, I can’t bend too much, if not my back will be so strained and I can’t even stand straight after that!

When the night creeps in, she would want NO ONE, but me to carry her and nurse her to sleep! Even when she doesn’t need her milk, she would still need me to hug her to sleep. Daddy would always say “Why? Daddy got spikes huh? Why you cry when Daddy carries you?” Hubby would get exasperated whenever she wailed in his arms.

So, is there a bond between Lynnie and myself? I guess so ba! Mommy love you so muchie…Baby!
