I changed. Or at least, I think I've changed.

Birthdays used to be a big thing for me. I love celebrating my birthday. I love celebrating my partner's birthday. As superficial as it sounds, I love being pampered.

When I first started dating Skai, we celebrated every single birthday. Celebrations could range from an extravagant day out to a comfortable and relaxing staycation to a very indulgent meal.

A typical celebration would be a staycation or a good buffet/steak dinner. Sometimes we go for holidays but it's pretty hard to do so for my birthday as it's always close to CNY or Valentine's day i.e. overpriced air tickets.

Last year, we celebrated with a home cooked meal by Skai as I was heavily pregnant. It wasn't the easiest pregnancy by then so I tried to stay home as much as possible.

This year, Skai asked what I wanted to do.

Instead of celebrating me, I wanted to celebrate Aidan. I requested a shoot for Aidan on my birthday. I think Skai was pretty surprised by my request but he agreed.

And so we did! Hello family tees! And a grumpy and chubby Aidan back then.

Though we did enjoy some couple time when Aidan was asleep heh.

But the best time was when he was awake.

I guess, I didn't need any birthday celebrations because Aidan is the best birthday present ever.

But of course, beef comes a close second. Heh. ūüėČ

Time passed by way too fast! Aidan is now 15 months going 16 months old! His milestones has not differed much but here's a brief recap!

  • He is extremely curious! He loves touching every single item and also walking around to look at things. He also points at things and looks at us!
  • He hasn't learn much words however he likes to babble a lot. It is so adorable when he does so!
  • He still loves to walk! It's tough babywearing or carrying him now as he wants to explore things.
  • He is much stronger than me when it comes to injections. He has his chicken pox vaccination and didn't make a single sound when they jabbed him.
  • He is very helpful now! Sometimes we will point at things and ask him to take it to us and he does!
  • He is now very clingy and loves to cuddle me out of the blue!
  • When we tell him to find papa/mama, he really does so!
  • He still loves to ransack things like digging out things from boxes and throwing them around.
  • He still loves to latch! Although I tried introducing fresh milk to him recently, he rather latch than drink it. I believe it's a comfort thing haha.
  • He is extremely friendly and loves making friends from kiddos to adults.

Honestly I love this stage with him. It is so fun interacting with him and i love how manja he is! He is especially very clingy to me rather than Skai at this stage. I know that most kids take turns being close to one parent, so I'm just enjoying this stage! hehehehehe.

As some of you guys may know, I pretty much live breathe Jujube! And with every Jujube Tokidoki launch, I go gaga.

The recent Sea Punk collection was no exception! I have decided to do a series where I will share about each and every Jujube style.

For today's post, I will be sharing about the BFF which is one of Jujube's hottest item: The Jujube Sea Punk BFF.

The BFF is a very versatile bag from Jujube. It could be worn backpack style or messenger style. Here's how I pack the Jujube BFF for a day out!

I usually use a variety of items to pack my bag. Here I use the large Be Organised set, a Be Quick, two small Set pieces and a medium Set piece.

  • For my Space Place medium set piece, I usually pack with toys to keep Aidan occupied. I have a rattle, a toy trumpet and a lil car for him.
  • In the Quick, I pack stuff for his meals e.g. Cutleries from BBox, a Space Place Be Neat and a change of clothes incase things get messy.
  • In the Large Be Organised, I pack diapers and wet wipes from Nateen.
  • For the Ukk2 small set piece, I pack puffs and snacks in a small container for him.
  • For the Out to Sea small set piece, I pack stuff for me, like tissue paper, lip balm etc.
  • I also bring along a water bottle which I use the BFF bottle pockets to store.

The BFF is big enough for a day out. I usually bring bigger backpacks like the BFF and BRB for longer days while I would use a Hobobe or Be Sporty for shorter days out.

Here are some pics of the Jujube Sea Punk BFF!
