Andrea has started potty training. She doesn’t like the small potty that you can buy at toy stores and baby stores so we just got her to sit on the toilet with the seater. She likes this more and so we started. She still goes on the diaper and then after she’s done, she’ll say she wants to go the washroom. Big improvement from not even wanting to sit on the toilet to letting me know she wants to go!
Josh and Andrea are both sick right now. I am slowly starting to get the morning sickness vibe going and so we’re just at home most of the time. Playing with our toys (reading books for me and toys for them).
Sometimes Josh will get really really bored and that’s when the iPad comes in handy.
Andrea has been loving the big trucks lately. I guess she’s finding her toys boring and her brother’s toys fascinating. Tomorrow is Friday!!!!! Hopefully, I can go somewhere with the kids tomorrow.
Morning sickness hasn’t been super bad compared to when I had Andrea. However, I do feel a bit nauseous in the morning and when I haven’t eaten for more than 3 hours. I have to have a cracker or bread every 3 hours. After a meal, I get really sleepy and in the afternoon it starts to get worse. It’s not too bad right now so I’m hoping I can start to take the kids somewhere tomorrow or on the weekend with Kaden.
We made it through Monday!! Yay!!! I thought that by now I would have started my morning sickness but I’m totally fine. I feel a bit uncomfortable in the stomach right after I wake up but other than that, I’m fine.
Josh and Andrea were pretty bored yesterday. We didn’t do much and they did get a chance to go out for a bit with Kaden last night but I guess that wasn’t enough. They’ve been wanting to go outside for a while now but I’ve been having some cramp-like lower abdominal pain since yesterday morning so I’m trying to take it easy.
Therefore, everything and anything to keep the kids busy is a must!
They had their Lego session, coloring session and then a full on window marker session this morning.
So…!!! It’s been just a couple of days since we found out we are having another child. What a great blessing. I always wanted to have three kids and God has blessed us with three!!!!
I haven’t started my morning sickness yet (fingers crossed that it won’t be as bad as the last two pregnancies) and I also hadn’t decided on which clinic to go to. But then I remembered when I had Andrea. I had searched and searched on google for a good doctor and I couldn’t find any reviews or doctors that attracted me (I don’t mean attracted me with looks or anything I was simply just reading reviews of doctors so don’t take it the wrong way).
Then I remembered going through a list of reviews on the Korean cafe community Mom’sHolic on Naver.com. I stumbled across one mother-to-be’s review about a female doctor that made sure she felt comfortable and relaxed through her full 9 months. She ended up giving birth in Korea due to personal reasons but she said that Dr Wendy had helped her feel great through her first pregnancy.
At that time Dr Wendy was at Ang Mo Kio’s AMK as Thomson Medical Women’s Clinic. I went to her for my first Ultra Sound and confirmation of pregnancy screening. I remember her being super down to earth, very calm and soft spoken. But very on the dot and good with explaining details I couldn’t remember of my first pregnancy. So I decided to go to her again!
Sunday morning. The kids wanted to start the day with some painting on the balcony. The HAZE PSI level was a bit high on Friday and Saturday so I was a bit worried but it down quite a bit so they were able to paint.
Josh hates getting dirty or getting pain on him. On the other hand, Andrea, she doesn’t care.
After washing up, and after Kaden had finished some work at the office, we headed to Orchard Road for lunch. The kids fell asleep so we bought some sandwiches for the kids and headed to Botanical Gardens. It’s only 4 minutes away from out house but I don’t know why we don’t go there as much. Actually I do know why. Kaden doesn’t like it when its hot and humid and so we don’t go as much.
Josh hasn’t been feeling too well lately with his fever going up and down and coughing. We thought it was just a minor thing but I guess we were wrong. His face kept swelling up a bit after naps and dark circles were appearing so I tried to keep him inside the house and kept him away from hard physical activities. So on Wednesday, we took out all the trains and played together, indoors.
So last time I did a quick video and post on what make up products I use for my MOMMY Make Up.
Some of you asked for a detailed video if possible so here it is!!
Ok, so the whole point in this “Korean style makeup” is to make your makeup look like it’s very natural and thin. By thin, I mean you should look like you barely have any foundation on. Notice there is no foundation in my list of makeup products? That’s why I mix BB cream and concealer before applying it on my face.
If you want more coverage, then apply a bit more of concealer on the areas that are needed.
Remember, the more silky smooth skin you have the better, the more even toned skin you have, the BEST!
Our sea horse pool was ruined the other day because of a couple of lizards… They poked holes into our pool with their claws and I had no idea. Until this morning. So while Josh was at kindergarten, Andrea and I went to Toys R Us and bout this pool for $13 SGD.
Josh said he likes this one better than the other one. I guess the roof on the other one was uncomfortable for him.
Lately, the kids have been totally hooked on this DUTCH LADY chocolate milk. It’s individually packed so they drink it up like it’s a small piece of candy or something. They finished 8 packs in 2 days.
Josh and Andrea love it more because of the Disney’s Frozen characters that are on it. I guess the packaging really does matter to kids.
Josh has been in this “I’m not going to eat proper food but just junk food” kind of state for the past few days. I was finally able to crack him out of it with some rib eye steak today. But as you can see in this picture. He’s eating fruit loops and half an apple.
I decided to take out my Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF6 to film the kids while we are in Singapore. Now that we’re only going to be here for a few more months. I thought it’d be nice to film them playing and just keep a few video files so that we can take a trip down memory lane when ever we want to.
