Has it been a year! Whoa!
Time is passing way way way tooooooo fast… where is the little crying bundle?
This 1 year I’ve discovered another side of me… never I knew that my body is able to adjust to those terrible sleep hours but for the sake of you, I was able to. I never knew that i could cook but because of you, I’ve learnt to cook babymeals!
I’ve also learnt to be more responsible more moneywise and more patient. Beinh a mother now, I’ve learnt to take better care of my own body cos I know I can not longer afford to fall sick as you need me more than anyone elses in this world (at this moment lah).
Thank you for the joys, laughters, fun, love, tears and many more emotions that you have brought to the family and thank you for coming into Mama and Papa lives.
We love you so much!
Happy 1yo Birthday Baby Rachelle!
A very very negative post but i have to pen this down.
No matter how many certificates you have, it doesn’t give you the right to laugh at others! You are just worth this much (—-) i think!
I am not highly educated but i know that i shouldn’t go around saying nasty stuff to others. Even if that person is fat after post natal, i wouldn’t say things like “hey why you still so fat?”
I also wouldn’t say stuff like these: why your hair so dry? / Aiyo, you know i saw who and who, her baby bump still sticks to her! / They should be thankful they f**t so that they can fit into better looking clothes / i think the mirrors in their houses are those illusion ones which is why they don’t realise they are so fat!
The worse is that when i told them off on why they so evil, i was questioned if i wanna join those people that they are lauging at!
So no matter how highly educated you are, you are just worth that much!
Had this random thought about how fast a man’s* heart can change after listening to a friend pour about how her hub has cheated upon her. My heart goes out as her baby is same age as Rachelle.
I think that it is really scary when one can forget completely about the marriage vows that they had taken upon their wonderful wedding day. How can one be so heartless to walk away from someone that his/her heart once ache so much for? How could someone be so heartless to walk away from own flesh and blood?
Emotional is SCARY!
*Man referring to both sexes
I am kinda guilty in leaving Rachelle at nanny cos recently my nanny has been parking Rachelle in her pram way before I go at fetch her. Her reason being that Rachelle starts to get cranky at 6 plus so she calms down when she sits in pram…. really ¥×÷_=_£×¥×£$^!!!!!! I find it hard rmto accept… just let time passes fast and Rachelle gets accepted into CC!
Jocelyn (Mrs Giraffe) introduced me to be part of this Blog Train through whatsapp about 2 weeks ago. I’ve gotten to know her through my LJ blogging days but we have never met before. Very glad to have known her as during my 1st few weeks of being a mummy, I’ve faced quite a few issues as I was having slight post natal blue and she had answered to my weird questions. Thank you for being there :)
Part of this blog train, I will need to answer the following:
What am i working on? – I am a FTWM. Works at a local bank and has been working for the past 12 years (different industry but always customer service). Once time reaches 6pm, I will be rushing off work to pick up Rachelle from Nanny and then proceed with the family bonding with Hubby and dearest Noona :) My blog used to be a collection of my makeup and skincare products reviews before Rachelle was born and after that mostly baby updates. I must say I am total guilty that I have kinda stop writting. Now i will spend my free time catching up on my sleep. I hope to start writing real soon: More on recording my life as a mother :) As for my job wise, I am not suppose to be blogging about it and it is nothing interesting anyway.
How does my work differ from others in its genre? - I used to love to buy skincare and makeup thus I was thinking that it will be nice to write on what I am using so that I can use it as a reference in future. Of course I do also write on some happenings and ranting on my life which is very very dry to read up on. Now being a mother, I do want start to write more on Rachelle’s milestone… maybe I should start recording my daily happening as she never fails to amuse me! Stepping into motherhood also makes me realise that all parenting is different and the expectation that we set for our child is different so I guess I am different in a way that inwould very much prefer Rachelle to have a fun childhood rather than to have memories of going to lotsa enrichment classes every weekend in future. I believe in learning through play during their first few years.
Why Do I Write What I Do? – As mentioned, I would want to have read up in future as referene. Who knows? I might chnage my mind of my 1childpolicy which I think I did change a little tiny bit!
How Does My Writting Process Works? – I usually start when I have the strong feel to write and I will follow on with scrolling through the photos and start writting accordingly to my feelings… very boring but I feel this is the more real me. Blog post last time are more of a plan as I do start from using a particular product then proceed into doing my own review :)
Pris Seet I started following Pris’ blog way back in 2008 and the deepest impression she left on me is always her handsome boy! Love her reviews on mask and recently love reading her updates on P progression….
Mummy Pris Our history is way back to 1990 when I first met XH at CHIJ Punggol! In between we did had some small misunderstandings but am glad to have found this friend back after so many years… love her recent updates on the school holiday past time with her #1….
I am a super lousy cook but am super glad that Rachelle ate whatever porridge I whipped up daily…
I am super anal when it comes to Rachelle’s food thus I make it a point to cook myself daily even though Nanny did offer to cook but I kindly rejected :)
I started out with 2 grains – Millet and Short Grain Rice which I will slow cook daily with the puree that I prep once a week and freeze.
I added Red Lentils into her porridge base as she hits 8mo. I would try to feed less rice and focus more on grains as I feel and also learn that the nutrients value are much better :)
Soup base are usually a huge teaspoon of ikan billis powder and kunbu soup base.
I do also add in Flax Oil when the porridge is cool to a lower temperature for the Omega boost!! About 2 ton3 times a week :)
Latest order from iHerb and I will be starting Pearl Barley and Quinoa into her porridge meals. Of course I will alternate the grains but I will make it a point to have at least 3min grains per meal. The Chia Seed I hope to introduce soon as it is a superfood!!! Will also be starting VCO to boost her immunity.
Am trying my best to just give natural food source instead of starting vitamins as I’ve read that it is best to start after 2yo.
Here are some of my creations:
Carrot and Spinach Porridge
Carrot and Endives Porridge
Pumpkin and Peas porridge
Beet Root Porridge
The Greens Porridge which she hates… lol!!
Pumpkin and Parsnip Porridge
Spinach, Carrots and Zucchini Porridge
As she is hitting her 9mo soon I hope to be introducing more solids to her. Porridge are usually fed to her during lunch and she eats cereal for dinner as I have no time to cook additional portions. During weekends I will add fruit puree to her cereal.
Rachelle, hope you love my porridge.
