Big brother Aden is turning 4 years old this coming May.
Many commented he looks quite big for his age. Yea, he is kinda tall compared to other kids at the same age. I guess he probably inherits his daddy's genes in terms of height ;)
Sometimes being a mother makes me kinda dilemma... I want him to expose to outside world, try all sorts of food, but at the same time, I am worry about him becoming chubby/fall sick easily =_=
Aden is unlike other kids, I just can feel it when I see my friends' kids. He is those super stubborn and naughty type. The more you ask him don't do, the more he'll do. He just won't listen. Seriously he is testing my patience every single day!
People around me sayang him and hardly beat him. But for me and hubby, we just cannot control it. I am not a patient type of person (even with 2 kids). After once or twice of warning and if he is still behaving bad, I will beat (Then feeling guilty afterwards :p)
People say he will behave better as he grows up and after he goes to school. I hope so.
Things will be so much better and easier if he can helps look after his little brother for me.
Speaking of little brother, he will be ONE next month! :o
As for Toby, I actually don't control him too much compared to Aden at the same age.
I let him experienced different food, even adult food (just a little bit of course). I let him crawl on the carpet/in the bathroom,
play with electrical sockets. (Of course with supervision la)
He is one glutton boy, and I mean it. Whenever he sees us eating, he starts making noise and requesting for it. When he can't get enough, he bangs his hands on the table, or simply, shout.
He masters the art of drinking from straw within minutes. May be that's the power of breast milk? xD
I feel that he is smarter than his kor kor~
By the way, I am still breastfeeding Toby. And I am in dilemma whether to wean him off when he turns one. Actually my initial plan is to breastfeed him til 6 months old but don't know why the plan fails :p
Breastfeeding offers a lot of benefits, I do love the bonding with him, and it is so much easier. But at the same time, it's more tiring, physically and mentally. It does has its inconvenience too. Like, I cannot go out without him for more than 4 hours (I don't pump anymore since fullmoon).
The reason I thought of weaning him off is that he now eats a variety of food already. And who knows I might go on trips with hubby this year? :p
But really no idea how to do it...
Breastfeed baby tends to be very clingy to mummy and it's very true
He wants just me. Cannot let him see me, else he will sure want to me carry. I think I have to wear a mask from now on :p
I admit I feel loved and proud knowing that both kids are clingy to me. But at the same time, it's super tiring. Imagine both want your attention all the time. You really cannot go pangsai unless there's someone who helps you look after them.
I realize I long for a break even more frequent. Even just an hour of ME time is like a heaven to me.
Moreover, Toby is at the stage of climbing high and low now. Really must pay attention to him all the time.
Sometimes I feel bored doing the same things everyday. BUT I won't want anything else to replace it. Parenthood is hard. But it's rewarding at the same time. As long as both of them grow up healthily and happily, I have nothing else to ask for ;)
