Little holiday.

The hubby finally found time to bring us out for an overseas trip. Thought it's not too far away but it's still overseas.. :D

Blue Sky, Green Sea..

 
Mama and Winnie. :D

On the moving ferry~~

 On an almost empty ferry. :D

Where's dada? I want him to carry~~

Sleepy pie.. 

Outfit of the day. :P

Mama and Winnie smile smile.. :D


Mama, why are you taking photos of me again?


Many first times for this trip.

First time staying in a villa.
First time on a ferry (that I can remember)
First overseas trip with my cutie pie.
First time the 3 of us sleeping on a tiny bed.
First time going thru immigrations carrying my cutie pie.
Winnie's first time eating mashed potatoes.
Winnie's first overseas trip with parents and grandparents + cousin.
Winnie's first swim in a public swimming pool with her parents. :D
First time I slept and ate non-stop on a trip. I'm like either looking for food or sleeping the whole trip.. It's madness. :(
First time doing nothing in a overseas trip.
First time spending nothing in a overseas trip for me.

No Shopping, No walking around. Only 1 20mins buffet >.< and 1 short swim at the swimming pool in the morning.. For 2days 2nights it's really kinda wasted. -.-' Well, it's an experience, so we know what to do when we go to my choice of destination the next trip minus the grandparents and cousin. :D Am so glad to be back in SG with clean water, our own beds and shopping anytime I wanna go.. Wee~

Oh well. Apparently after the short trip, I carried on the eat and sleep routine for the rest of the week. I'm actually feeling some sort of dejavu feeling.. cause the last time I experienced sleeping all the time was about a year ago... Guess looking after cutie pie plus handling a blogshop for a few months did tire me out.. Mega huge thanks to my hubby for taking leave to help me look after Winnie while I slept the week away.. :P

So today he is back to work and I'm here going to start my work again.. Too much work piled up during this holiday and I don't know when can I clear them.. :( More photos of the trip as soon as I get the photos from hubby's camera.. I didn't bring my camera out this time. :D

Okay. Back to work. tadah~

Little Milestone update. 17th May 2013

Winnie's 5months and 2weeks old right now.
Just came back from her checkup + jab today.

An update since I've not blogged much till now. :P

- Today's weigh-in, 8.08kg. I was telling the nurse that Winnie's not drinking much milk and she say it's okay cause her weight gain is healthy and being 8kg at 5months is considered okay weight. The baby next to us is 6months old and she's about the same weight..

- She is able to sit >10secs now, so doctor gave the OK sign to start weaning her (starting soilds!)

- She still have not flip fully, choosing to occasionally turning to her sides. If she wants something, she would kick me, claw me or scream.. >.< Though if you put her on her tummy she will try to crawl..

- We bought a bumbo (baby seat) with table for her today and she likes it. :D But her thighs are a little tight. :( Wonder how much longer can she stay on it..

- 2 weeks ago, we tried baby spa and we like the result. We're going for it every week now. :) I was skeptical about the benefits of the spa but since it gives us a reason to bring her out for some activity, why not? I am really pleased that it's doing a lot of good for her. :D She have pooing issues for many many months and after 1 session, she started pooing a little more regularly.

- I'm one of the not so lucky ones who doesn't have enough milk for her kid. Super envious of other mums who have a huge stash of frozen milk even after all the feeds. :( Had to keep topping up with formula after her ebm feeds. She's drinking abt 50% ebm and 50% formula right now.

- After "consulting" some mums and with my own experiment. This is what I am going to try to get the milk to increase.. well at least last till end of the year? :D
1. Power pumping (pumping more often, it's painful but it will tell the body to produce more).
2. Drink more fluid. (I have a bad habit of not drinking enough water.)
3. More rest. (Have not been able to sleep well.)

I guess this is it for now. :D
Will try to update again soon. :)

Nice cupcakes. :D

  For Winnie's full month celebration I ordered some awesome cupcakes.

 
 
They are really nice imo, not too sweet. :D

There were quite a number of raves from friends and relatives, so last week for Mother's Day celebration, we order some.

Decide to try another flavour and ordered strawberry and chocolate chip.
So glad that this time they remember to wrap them individually for me. :D



 The Strawberry flavour ones has a gummy on top.

But my favourite flavour till now is still Chocolate Overload. Yummeh.. heh.
 For those interested to know where I ordered these lovely cupcakes from, it's from http://www.etasweets.com/. There are other shops selling cheaper cupcakes but those cupcakes are too sweet for my liking..

Do you have a favourite cupcake shop/flavour? Do share with me. :)
