Aden boy: 1y1m1w

To date, my son is already 1 year 1 month 1 week and 3 days old (Time flies isn't it?)

So I reckon it's time to submit his report card ;)

孩子已经13个月又1个礼拜大咯!是时候来记录下Aden的进展了。

1. In the Chinese beliefs, there's this 'item picking' tradition when the baby turns one year old. Well I am not very superstitious and this is not a must for me, but I find it kinda cute and fun so I prepared some items for Aden to choose.
Shoes, book, ruler, pen, money and a calculator (This is a simplified version, a complete set of this tradition requires even more items) Each item represents different meaning, it symbolized the kid's future career by looking at the sequence of the items he picks.
农历1岁抓周给他准备了一些物品,不过我本人不是很相信这些所以就很随便准备几样罢了(我旨在给Aden玩玩罢了^^)

Here he is! All items are new to him except for the shoes. Guess which item he first picked? ;)

First was the ruler (means he might become a designer or architect in the future) , second was a RM 50 note (means he might be very wealthy in the future!) The rest, not interested >.< And he held the note in his hands quite long... haha xD (So $$ face!)
Well I don't really believe in those things la, just wanna try it for fun~
结果第一个选的是尺,接着是钱,其它的没兴趣!=_=


2. During his 13th months check up, he weighs 10kg, and is 77cm tall. Still wearing L size pant diapers, 2 solid meals per day, snacks a lot in between, and 2 sessions of milk time (about 7oz each session). He is still very glutton and whenever he sees food, he'll say 'mam mam' very precisely. 
Oh he also poo a lot everyday! At least 3 times! Hence his diapers habis (finish) very fast! I wonder is this normal since he's not a breastfeed baby anymore?
13个月时打了prevenar booster针,现在Aden有10kg所以抱他是很不容易了。。
Aden 还是那么贪吃,不过吃得多也放得多!一天最少便便3次 (是正常吗?)所以尿片用得特别快!我都跟他说幸好阿公有能力要不然怎样买你的尿片啊?毕竟一包Mamypoko裤尿片不便宜呢~


3. As he is now learning to walk on his own, he is getting more active! I mean, super active! I got more tired and the most anticipating moment is his nap time. I can either nap with him or do my own stuff. Stay at home mum can be very busy also! Really envious at those mummies who have got a maid/helper at home!
Aden still naps twice a day (most of the time).  
小瓜开始学走路了,自己可以放手走几步。。我在等着他可以自己走向我的那一天!呵呵。。不过还是那句啦,凡事顺其自然。。。让他自己发挥,不急~


4. His favorite sleeping pose lately, and I notice he sleeps longer with this pose, I let him sleep the way he wants although one of his hand might become numb, haha xD 


5. Become very busybody and ransack everything he can! He is also very gwai lan (means super naughty in Hokkien) these days, and is not afraid of anything/anyone in the house!
Aden 很会捣蛋!是一只名副其实的捣蛋虫!总是很爱给我做工作!又很怪兰,pattern多多!很多时候给他气到血压标高!有时喂他吃饭时就在玩口水/食物,把东西都给喷出来!越说不可以他就越爱做!阿。。。。


6. Not growing any molars at the moment, still with 8 front incisors. Able to walk a few steps on his own already. 


7. He used to scare of the toys car in the mall but now not anymore, even refuse to get out of it! 


8. He has strong arms so nothing is too difficult for him to climb these days. I used to worry that he'd fall down but looks like my worry is too much now. 
现在爬高爬低都不是大问题了!天啊,男孩真的 sipek giat!


9. Boys will be boys, Aden loves cars and wheels! 


10. Likes to play peek-ka-boo and this day, he thought I couldn't find him by hiding under my clothes but his leg betrayed him, haha my silly boy! 
那天跟我玩躲猫猫结果还是输了给我,哈哈!xD


11. Brought him for a photo contest the other day at Tesco, not expecting him to win, just wanna snap for fun. Loves his smile here~
He is becoming more talkative but still not able to talk accurately yet. Favorite words are still 'mam mam' and 'nen nen'. Able to recognize a few words and point to the item in the room when I say the names, like fan, books, bathroom, TV and etc.


Looking after an active and naughty toddler is really not easy. I admit I love exercising but this type of exercise seems too much now >.<
But I am thankful that at least he is active and loves exploring everything (means he is a normal child)!

Aden 也越来越爱讲话了。。虽然不知道他在说什么不过听到他在叽叽喳喳觉得很可爱!
现在每天都跟Aden在 boh eng,真的很忙很累。。不过这也是当全职妈妈的‘好处’,因为可以第一时间看到他每天不同的新进展!=)

  4. Very cute boy. We did not play that Chinese item picking with my 2 kids. Not so superstitious. hahaha!

    Soon when he can really walk and run, Aden will lose some chubbiness. As long as he eats and drinks milk and poos daily, he is growing healthily.

  7. 我没有给我佟b抓周,因为。。。我不懂这玩意!!>_<

    男孩真的sibeh giat hor!哈哈!那个躲猫猫的好好笑,发现他的脚。

    10kg了哦!看不出哦,但是妈咪会抱得会很累hor!

    一天三次,可能吃的东西有关系,但是应该ok吧。我的b一天一次,有时吃多了番薯及青菜就会一天两次。

    aden加油哦^^ 很棒了!你一定很感动有没有。
    我的佟b在我出游前就肯好好放手走了好多好多了,还好没有让我错过那一幕!是很感动兴奋的。

    爱讲话也爱唱歌了,哈哈,虽然我们都听不懂,一样咯哈哈。

  21. Glad Aden sits still on the weighing machine. My elder sister during her first child birth witnessed a shocking experience when her baby and weighing pan fell off the weighing machine. The nurse did not place the pan properly. Lucky no damage and the baby is now a healthy adult.

    1. OMG! That's too bad!
      Now that he's sitting, soon he'll be standing on the weighing machine already, hehe...
