Brother Love

ALthough its a well known that Lucas gets jealous whenever mummy carries Giselle, we have observed that he can be quite caring too. Check out the photos below

A pleesant surprise to end the year 2009

The last blog for 2009 is a happy. Mummy promised to write this blog no matter how tired she is at the end of the day.

This morning, on our way to the Childcare Centre, Lucas behaved very well. Once we left the house, Lucas carried his own bag all the way to the doorstep of the Childcare Centre.

As the car turned into Serangoon North Ave 5, there were no whining and crying from him. When we got out of the car, Lucas continued carrying his little blue bag. When we reached the doorstep of the Childcare Centre, both Mummy and Daddy half expected Lucas to start his usual Serial Drama style crying. But nope, Lucas remained super calm and sat down for the Teacher to measure his temperature and took his dose of Cod Liver Oil.

When Teacher Siew Kee brought him into the Childcare Center, he turned back and wave goodbye to us. Most amazing part is, throughout the entire episode, Lucas did not shed a tear ! Well Done Son, we are very very proud of you!!!

Now the only challenging part about today was that there will be a long weekend due to New Year Holidays. We sure hope that come next Monday, Lucas will still behave like an angel.

Follwing Week at Child Care Part 2

Tuesday - Today as we send Lucas to Cherie Hearts, he reacted in a calmer manner. Although it was still hard for him when the time came for us to part, he still held his hands out for Teacher Jennifer to carry him.

According to Teacher Huang, Lucas is starting to enjoy his meals. He manage to feed himself with 3 bowls of cereals.

Teacher Marina observed that Lucas joined in the fun with the rest of the boys during Assembly Time. This was impressive considering that Lucas used to hate Assembly Time and would always cry.

Teacher Mae told us that they tried to wean him of his pacifier after his afternoon nap. And what surprised her was that he did not even asked for his pacifier after his nap.

We are glad that things had turned out well for Lucas at Cherie Hearts. We surely did not regret the decision to enrol him at such a tender age because he will defintely leatn lots of things at Cherie Hearts.

The following week @ ChildCare Centre

It was a Monday of the following week. We noticed that Lucas was happy today and did not seem too bothered about going to school. He did not whine a bit at home. We gave him his bread and soya milk while he watched his favourite Barney video.

As we drove him to school, he was chirpy as usual and seemed relaxed. As we reached the doorstep of Cherie Hearts, he started to cry a bit. When we passed him over to Teacher Joyceline, they went down to the Sheng Siong Supermart for a walk while we conveniently disappear.

Later that day, Teacher Joyceline told us that while at Sheng Siong, he asked to be brought to see the fishes. Lucas even managed to point out and pronounce correctly some items i.e. Bear, Mickey Mouse. The teachers also reported that he is behaving slightly better and playing along with the othter kids. The teachers mentioned that Lucas loves music and story-telling. Teacher Jennifer pointed out that he would listen attentively to her during story-telling.

We can see that Lucas is slowly accepting reality and gradually adapting to his new environment. Slowly but surely he is getting there... Well done son, Daddy & Mummy are very proud of you !

Potty Training for Lucas

Whenever he calls us to check his diapers, we being "smart" parents start to bring Lucas to the toilet bowl and made him sit there to play the waiting game. So far we have not succeed. Let's hope we can speed up this process and get him trained soon.

There comes a time when Lucas starts to tell us " Mama, Poo Poo !! Check !!" beckoning for us to check his diapers to see if they are soiled.

Something about Lucas & Giselle

These are just a few of the things that we observed about Lucas and Giselle.

One time, at Granny's house, while Daddy was cutting fruits in the kitchen, Lucas was having a tug-of-war with Aunty Evelyn in the living room. He was trying to wrestle Giselle's bouncer from Aunty Evelyn's hands. In a bid to talk Lucas out of the wrestling match, Aunty Evelyn mentioned that Daddy is coming out soon.

At that very moment Daddy stepped into the living room. From the corner of his eyes, Lucas could see that "TROUBLE" was coming. The next thing that he did simply shocked both Daddy and Aunty Evelyn. In that split second that he saw Daddy coming, Lucas immediately dropped the bouncer and picked up a nearby story book, proclaiming " Book! Book!" - meaning that he wants to read the book. And when Daddy picked him up asking what had happened just now, he cried immediately.

We gathered that Lucas probably felt guilty that he did something wrong, hence the crying. We found it unbelievable that a child so small, could display such awareness of his surroundings and quick reflexes in a bid to divert attention and avoid potential trouble.

Another time, Mummy was trying to pacify a crying Giselle with a bottle of milk. As Giselle was creating a racket with her cries, Mummy put the bottle on the table to free her hands. Sensing that his baby sister is not comfortable and probably hungry, Lucas reached out, picked up the bottle and passed it to Mummy, willing her to feed Giselle with it. Mummy and Daddy were both impressed at the actions of Lucas as he exemplified awareness and sensitivity.

As for Giselle, it seems that she takes after her mummy for being a light sleeper. We noticed that she would wake up easily whenever we shift her from her cot. She is definitely growing at an exponential rate, having outgrown most of her clothings now. We are going to put the two into a child care centre soon. We hope they can get used to the place soon enough. After all, both Mummy and Daddy had to work, and both our parents are unable to take care of the kids. Let's hope for the best

Feeling guilty

Dunno why Daddy feels this way, but it seems we were pretty lop-sided in providing updates in this blog. So here's some updates on our little princess Giselle :

a. Giselle is now taken care of by Daddy's Aunt.
b. She keeps wanting to sit up up... very strong tummy muscles indeed
c. She is starting to make lots of noise... just like Lucas
d. She craves constant attention and companion. She will launch her crying weapon
when she doesn't see anyone

Sunday at Vivo

Today was a very hot day. So Daddy, Mummy along with Da Sao (Rachel) & Gu Gu (Evelyn) brought Lucas and Giselle to Vivo City. We bought a pair of sandals coz his current pair broke.

Next was the water play which Lucas loves best. He ran all over the place trying to catch the streams of water.

After that we went for a tea break. Lucas kept wanting to eat the cheesecake we bought so much so that he was prepared to say Xie Xie and PLEASE several times.

Lucas goes to the beach

We have been wanting to bring Lucas to the beach, but it never happened. So when we finally brought him there, we were as happy as Lucas.

First stop Burger King - We had some nice breakfast over there. A kind little girl gave Lucas her balloon because our little fella kept staring at her balloon.

Second stop Bicycle Ride - Lucas was exhilarated because it was his virgin ride. He kept exclaiming along the way. On the ride back, Daddy notice that Lucas was strangely quiet. It turned out that he had dozed off while sitting on the bicycle. Afraid that he might doze off and knock his front teeth off, we hurried back to the bicycle kiosk.

third stop Playing sand - What can I say? It was fun fun fun though the beach could be cleaner!
