You, Evan, turn 15 months old today. Such a big boy.
Mummy has so many thoughts as you turn 15 months old. Is it time to introduce formula milk to you? Are you ready for it? What brand shall I give you? Sigh.. our little baby is growing so quickly.

First stop: photo studio. We finally have an appointment to pick the pictures that were taken quite a while back. The people there were NOT efficient. Our pictures were not ready. In fact, we had to wait a while to be served. And when we were finally served the lady could not find the file with your pictures. By then we were getting angry as we had to go to Adventist Hospital after that. So when they finally found the pictures, we did a quick one and ended up with 10 extra pictures along with the free 8R photograph. Daddy paid and we rushed to Adventist Hospital.
How? You are wondering? Of course the timing of you waking up is "wonderful".. sigh.. at 6.50am this morning. But you grinned when you woke up and then...
You gave mummy a big, loud kiss on my forehead. And when mummy looked at you, you gave me several more kisses. Aaawww... you're so sweet. And of course, your mummy is NOT selfish, so I asked you to give daddy a big kiss too.
And of course, you did. But before that, you gave him a big smack on his face! Haha.. wake him up to ensure daddy knows that you give him a big kiss right?
It has been a long week for mummy and daddy, and any amount of kisses, be it real or flying kisses, coming from you really make our day! *Muakksss to you, sweetie*

We had poh piah for dinner again. So while daddy was eating, mummy and Seh Ku (Alex) entertained you and fed you the moi moi that Grampy had cooked for you earlier. You were a good boy and sat (and stood) on the sofa throughout the whole meal. And you finished all the moi moi that was cooked for you. Clever boy!
On Sunday we left Penang only around 2pm. Daddy had an early morning golf game. You also woke up when he woke up. Sigh.. so you napped that morning before daddy came back. We had lunch with Ah Ma and Ah Kong in mummy's favourite place, Queensbay Mall before heading to BM. We were due for a family photo shoot.
When we arrived at the studio, of course you decided to be mummy's superglue and so I had to carry you. You wouldn't even let daddy carry you when the photographer asked us to let someone else carry you! Sigh..
We went home and since you didn't want to take a nap, we had more photographs taken: (camerawoman was ee-ee and ah ku) Posing with Ah Ku
With Nanna and Ee-ee
We went home to Penang shortly after that. You were tired and Ee-ee had already gone home too. She needed to sleep as she stars work early everyday.
Phew.. what a long and busy weekend.

-My superglue: I think ever since you got sick, you've been stuck to me like glue. But only when you see me. Just like this morning, when mummy wanted to go to work, you made a lot of noise when I passed you to daddy. But after a while you calmed down (and had probably forgotten about mummy already!)
-You wake up in a good mood most of the time: Mummy got out of the bathroom this morning and was greeted with the biggest, sweetest grin from you. To top it off, you gave me a big juicy kiss when I asked for it. And when I asked you to kiss daddy, you gave his a whack on his head.. hahaha... you must be trying to wake up your sleepy head daddy.
-You are the first person we love to see when we reach home after a long, tiring day at work: Ah Ma or Kakak will bring you to the top of stairs and we will always get to see your smiling face. Of course, Furbie stands in front you you to greet us too.. with his toy.
-Our little angel: Angel mostly when you are asleep. When you are awake, you can be very demanding, telling us where you would like to go (in the house) and which toy you would like to play with. But we all love playing with you, exhausting as it may be...
-Yes or No: You can tell us what you want. When people want to carry you, you will tell him no by shaking your head. Last week, when daddy's golf "kaki" asked you to give him a "high-5" you told him no! Haha.. And if you want something, you will nod your head.. along with your whole body shaking in agreement too.
-You need more milk for your feeds: Yup, Ah Ma said your appetite is back, and you are wanting more. Now mummy has to prepare 6oz feeds. Sigh.. I guess it's almost time to reduce my breastfeeding and introduce formula milk, as I don't think I can cope with the demands. Boy, would I miss those times we spend together when you are feeding.
- Harass poor Furbie: You're lucky that Furbie is nice to you and lets you get away with harassing him, such as kicking him and stepping on him. In fact you sometimes yell at him when he's too noisy too. But we worry that one day Furbie might bite you back. Sigh.. But I better warn you to stay away from Nanna's (crazy) dog, Chelsea. She's not as nice as Furbie!
You do so many cute and funny things that make us go crazy, but we love you loads and wouldn't want you to change. Our dear little Evan, you are perfect just the way you are..

Last week Jing Ee's mummy told us about a bridal shop doing promotional photography for babies/children. So the following day, Ching Ern's mummy came with the advertisement (it was in Chinese) and she gathered several friends to sign up for the free 8R picture that came with the photo shoot. So during lunch time, a few of us went to sign up for ourselves and the rest who could not make it. Later in the afternoon, they called up asking us to go in for the photo shoot at 5pm! Of course we could not make it, and so we had to reschedule and picked today.
Mummy was on half day leave today as you were actually having diarrhea and so mummy and Ah Ma took you to Adventist Hospital to see Dr Mary. She said that you were fine. Initially when Dr Mary looked at you, she thought that you were very sick, as you did not move and just gave her an empty look. But when you went in to see her, she said you seem fine. So she gave us some medication "in case" and we were off. You seemed perfectly fine after that. You flashed the pharmacist your sweetest grin, earning you a nice yellow measuring spoon, and later a measuring cup when we went to pick up your medication. After that mummy went to make an appointment with the gynea and you even let Lina (the nurse in the OBGYN clinic) carry you!
Before going home, Ah Ma wanted to stop at Giant. So since we didn't bring the stroller, we let you sit in the shopping trolley. You seemed game to sit contently.. or so we thought. After 5 minutes, you got bored and decided it was more fun to sit with the groceries! So after a quick purchase, we left. Needed to get you home to rest before your photo session.
Perhaps you knew that something was up, and so after your bath, you refused to take a nap. Instead you played until it was time to go to the studio. Daddy and Ah Kong both left work early to watch you during the photo shoot. We arrived on time, but you were asleep by then. Luckily the photographer was late and so you got to nap a bit more. Soon, you were up and we got you dressed.
It was the longest 1/2 hour ever. We had to try to make you smile and also keep you in the middle so that the photographer could take your pictures. Sadly the photographer lacked the skill to photograph children/babies, as he never got any of the moments that you were smiling. He had brought out a BIG teddy bear that you loved at sight, and smiled and hugged it, but I doubt that he managed to get any good pictures. We ended the shoot with some of you smiling. Guess how... mummy, daddy and Ah Ma had to sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"! Anyway, we'll see how it goes after we view the pictures.
After that we left for dinner and went home. What a long day.

We decided to bring you to see the doctor today as your flu didn't seem to be getting better. To make us feel better, we braved ourselves to go to the hospital on a Sunday, knowing that it would be VERY crowded. Mummy and daddy planned to go as early as possible, but instead you decided to wake up early before 6 and went back to sleep again until almost 9am! By the time we were all ready, it was almost 10am. So we went to Adventist to register you at the paediatric clinic and since it was a long wait, we decided to go have breakfast. We had to go to several places before finding a suitable place to eat. The first shop had a write up in the newspaper that day so EVERYONE went there to try daddy's favourite char koay teow. Too bad, then we went to another large food court, but we were too early, so there wasn't much choices and we left.
Finally we went to our usual haunt and had breakfast while you had some biscuits. We headed back to the hospital but we'd missed your turn. So we waited a while and it was out turn. Dr Mary said you had no phlegm in your lungs (phew!) and just a blocked nose. So she prescribed polaramine and Iliadin. I think these medications must be the most prescribed medication. Several of mummy's friends have had these medication prescribed to their children too. Flu season? I guess so...
On our way home, you fell asleep so daddy took our stuff and we were on our way to BM to see Nanna and Grampy. We stopped to buy Sarawak Laksa along the way for lunch. We lazed around the house with Nanna and Grampy until it was dinnertime. And again, you fell asleep on the way to the restaurant. And you continued sleeping until we finished our dinner. So in the end, we decided to bring you home for dinner. But you decided that you were VERY hungry when we were almost home and made a lot of noise, making sure that we knew you were hungry.
So we fed you and started our journey home. Mummy forgot to inform my friends that we could not make it for the playgroup (again) this week. So excited to go to BM, that it slipped my mind. Anyhow, you still have the flu. Better not share your germs!!

No.. not another blog complaining about the lack of sleep mummy is having. In fact, with the long weekend that just passed, mummy had enough sleep to make up for the lack of it over the week. Imagine you were such a good boy, that you slept until 8.45 on Saturday morning, while on Sunday morning you slept till close to 8am. We had less sleep yesterday. You woke up at 7.15am. Sigh.. it felt to mummy like I'd just gone to sleep, after having breakfast with daddy. He was up very early yesterday morning as he had a golf game in Kulim. Yup, he was up at 5.30am! Sheesh.. who wakes up at such a time?!
New sleeping position?

From the video, you are walking more steadily now.
