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.

You've probably read and seen my previous posts with Ashley Low Photography. After a great experience with them, they were my top choice when I was looking to do another photoshoot.

Needless to say, I wanted to celebrate the special moment of Aidan turning 1! I love the whole concept of a Cake Smash Photoshoot thus I really wanted to do one!
I discussed this with Ashley on the concept and she suggested a blue theme! Which was perfect cos that was one of our favourite colours! Well, mine.

I also requested for something simpler like buntings or poms and Ashley totally nailed it with the background prepared! She also prepared the cutest cake ever!

Unfortunately the star of the show was feeling a bit cranky that day and refused to touch the cake. Really gotta love how patient the photographer was and Aidan soon warmed up!

My little boy is no longer a baby anymore! He is now 13 months old (actually this entry is extremely tardy!). No longer a baby, a toddler now!

Here are Aidan's milestones:

Untitled

  • Untitled
    • He is extremely inquisitive! He loves looking and examining items!

Untitled

    • It's really cute how he would 'ask questions' by pointing at things and going 'eh?'

Untitled

    • He is extremely great at walking. At 12 months, he started to walk with support, now he is great at walking.

Untitled

    • Due to his new achievement at walking, he prefers to walk unassisted. When we try holding his hands when walking, sometimes he would shrug us off! :'(

Untitled

    • His first word is Papa. His second word is Ball. He hasn't said Mama yet. SOBSSSSSS.

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

    • He LOVES balloons! Whenever he sees balloons or anything ball shaped, he'll point at say 'Ball ball!' over and over again.

Untitled

Untitled

    • He is still breastfeed. He still tends to comfort latch.

Untitled

    • Due to him being overly active and walking quite a lot, he has lost some of his baby fats. Mama is VERY VERY SAD.
    • He is unafraid of strangers. He would walk up to strangers and disturb them.

Untitled

Untitled

    • He is also not afraid of animals. We tested it with Fidel's doggy and Miu Miu.

Untitled

    • He has learnt how to bang. He has started banging our doors, especially when we are in the washroom.

Untitled<

    • He will imitate us e.g. like opening doors, closing doors etc.

Untitled

  • He greets us with the cutest smiles whenever he sees us.

We are so blessed to have him. While it is tiring honestly, he cheers us up most of the time. There are tough times I don't deny, but his smiles makes it worthwhile.

Aidan is now 11 months old! Soon he'll be 1 year old. o.O WAY TOO FAST!

Untitled

As per my usual tradition, here are some of his milestones!

  • He is able to move around with support. He stands while holding onto tables, chairs, humans. HAHHAHA. He also started to push things around.
  • Untitled

  • He claps enthusiastically now. Previous months he started doing the 'twinkle twinkle little star' motion and then pointing.
  • He has started saying mum mum, tata, baba. We're still waiting to hear him say papa and mama heh.
  • Untitled

  • He is still very vocal. He would point at things and say "EH!". He has started gesturing to things that he has queries on or things that he wants/drops. E.g. he would point at Skai walking away and go "EH!" as if to ask where is Daddy going?
  • Untitled

    Untitled

  • He is super hyper. He loves standing when he is not supposed to e.g. in baby chairs, supermarket trolleys.
  • Untitled

    Untitled

    Untitled

  • He is sleeping better at night. While he still sleeps really late, he now sleeps very deeply and does not wake up as frequently as last time.
  • Untitled

  • He has stopped sucking his pacifier to sleep. Instead he latches on me. Comfort latching. Before that, he'll bite on his teething toys.
  • Untitled

  • He is still breastfed. Looks like I'll be able to breastfeed till he is at least 1 year old! YAY!
  • Untitled

    Untitled

  • He has started giving things to people. Recently he fed me his biscuits.
  • Untitled

  • He is not afraid of dogs. Fidel brought her dog recently and Aidan was pretty indifferent to Ollie.
  • He loves touching the iRobot. However when the iRobot is switched on, he would be scared. HAHHAAH.
  • Untitled

  • He is still a very happy and cheery baby 🙂

Happy 11 months old my precious baby. He's growing up way too fast! We'll be planning for Aidan's 1 year birthday celebration soon. Do feel free to share tips and vendor recommendations! And if you'll like to collaborate, do contact me here!

So, my first Chinese New Year as a parent has passed. (Last year not counted, was preggers lah, but not a full fledged mother, ya know?)

Here's the difference between before having a kid and after.

Buying clothes.

Before having Aidan:

Simply just buying clothes and 'trying' to not clash with the hubby. E.g. If he wears green, I'll try not to wear red. We don't want to look like Christmas together.

After having Aidan:

MATCH EVERY FREAKING THING! Priority was Aidan. Finding clothes for him etc. I chose a red plaid shirt with jeans for him. After that, I chose an outfit to match him. DID NOT INTEND TO HAVE A FAMILY THEMED OUTFIT.

But the hubby felt left out and went to go buy a red plaid top. JIN KAYPOH SIA.

Getting ready.

Before having Aidan:

It used to take an hour max for us to get ready. One hops into the shower first, the other snoozes. After that, all rush to get ready and we can leave immediately.

After having Aidan:

Everything that can go wrong, WILL go wrong. Alarm set to go off at least two hours before we're supposed to leave the place.

Unfortunately when the alarm goes off, Aidan decided to latch. for a long time. After latching, tried to go bathe him, he cried. Have to pacify him. Play with him again. Finally can bathe him.

Dressed him up, bow tie too tight. Remove bowtie. Put aside watch for him to wear.

Took turns to shower while ensuring Aidan is in a good mood. Packed diaper bags and double check, triple check that nothing is left out.

About to head out, Aidan decides to latch again. Delayed. Aidan latches while mama cradles him. Daddy looks annoyed.

Finally after Aidan is done, we rush to the door. After locking the gate, we smelled something funny. Went back in. Poonami. Changed diaper.

Rushed out. Forgot the damn watch. Reached in-laws place an hour late.

Visiting.

Before having Aidan:

Relatives hinting/nagging about having kids.

After having Aidan:

Relatives loving Aidan and keeps carrying him, playing with him, smiling with him.

Small talk.

Before having Aidan:

Awkward conversation, small mundane talk. Stares at tidbits when there's nothing much to say.

After having Aidan:

Uses baby to make conversation. Uses baby to distract.

Angbaos

Before having Aidan:

Gives all the angbaos to all the kids, unmarried people etc

After having Aidan:

Collects some angbaos back. FINALLY! Relatives laugh when Aidan picks up the angbaos himself. I DID NOT TEACH HIM THAT!

Overall, this year Chinese New Year was extremely pleasant. Maybe because of the fact that we have Aidan, he was quite well-behaved.

But I know things will change. More questions will be posed to us in future years and Aidan will be running around like the monkey he is.

How was your Chinese New Year? Here are some pics we took this New Year!
