Our first family holiday is coming up!!

I started the ‘discussion’ almost 4 weeks ago And finally, after much ‘talking’, hubby booked a hotel room for a two day stay for thr Raya break. Of course, I had to do all the ‘groundwork’ like asking for hotel suggestions with my much travelled colleagues*, googling and the actual finalisation of the hotel.
We bought a pair of swimming trunk for the lil one last evening.¬†Yup, I am excited for the lil one. ūüėÄ
So, off we go to Port Dickson!! We will be spending two nights there, on the 30th & the 31st of August.
*normally I don’t ask for suggestions. As this is the first holiday holiday with lil N, I have to make sure the hotel and the room is child-friendly.
Photos to follow suit after the holidays.
-To be cross posted¬†in lil N’s blog¬†here.

Update:
Due to a number of bad reviews received for the hotel we booked in earlier, a frantic last minute search was going on. Luckily, we found a decent apartment just in the nick of time.

N’s new words are:
umbrella
kite
eyes
work
kick
And he also said, ‘Appa, *gesturing* work.’ His first ‘sentence’. ūüėÄ
The dining table chairs at my parents’ house are all put away as N is climbing over it within seconds.
N is 1 year 9 months 28 days.

Baby is growing

He almost has all of his baby teeth and I suspect he had growth sprout too!
Some new words of his:
Egg
Flower
Change (ishahsh)
Oh yes, he now accepts toothpaste and last week, I even managed to brush his teeth with my finger. He allowed me to do that. He accepts the water meant for garggling too. Not that he gurgles though. ūüôā
I hope I am not jinxing it by blogging. N is sleeping well at night. So am I. ūüôā
Remember the last couple of posts ago how I said N was not keen on having his meal? Well, I finally made him sit and have fed him without issues. How?
I cornered him on his usual makan spot on the sofa and had a chat with him.¬†Yup, I did exactly that. I told him, if he doesn’t eat his food, he is not going to grow up strong like his Appa and grandma.He has to eat to have strength. And if he finishes his food,¬†I will give him chocolates.
So, no more running around the living room. The boy¬†listens. ūüôā¬†

My Merdeka Post on FB

Enough of being proud of what your forefathers did over there. Come back to the present and think what are you doing here for your future generations to be proud of you. Happy Merdeka!

Am I being controversial? Maybe. As long as I do not behave and sound as stupidly as some Malaysians of Indian origin, I am perfectly fine with it.

Verbalising words

If there’s one thing I have learned in the last few months, then it has to be¬†a child’s ability to grasp¬†everything new. We may not know¬†what they have learned or when they learnt it, or¬†even if they have learnt anything from us at all when we¬†teach them.¬†When you least expect it, BAAAM, they would show/tell it to you. Leaving you gaping with their new found communicative confidence.
Thanks to me, N aped the four letter word after me. Each time I leave the living room windows open, my husband would close it. This happened for about 4-5 times before 2 pm the same day. To open the freaking windows, I have to climb the bloody sofa (no thanks to my height). The last time I climbed up the sofa, my right leg went right in the sofa, you know, the part where the seater meets the back rest.
What do I say, F**k, twice. What do I hear next. N saying F**k. He sounded so cute saying it. Just the way he rhythmatically says ‘duck’.
I quickly sang a nursery ryhme to divert his attention. A week later, I confessed to my husband and my mom (& sisters). I could not bear to keep it a secret-after hearing how well and adorable N looked saying it. Hahaha-yup, I am a weird Amma!
