Our journey

Luckily, there is internet connection at my grandma's house, so that we can update our blogs during our trip.

Well...this is not really a happy journey for me as i do not like the way my mother treated me in front of people as a mother. However, i do not want to talk much or argue anything as they are not a breastfeeding supporter. But, what i do not understand is why my mom always wants to make me feel bad in front of others! This made me sad and angry.......well..perhaps i should really get used to it as she was already like this when i was small. But, i am still upset :-(

Fortunately, my grandmas are not like her. They are more on my side :-) I am happy to see them and hopefully one of my grandma will be staying together with my family in JB from next year on :-)

Timmy was happy to see his grate grandmas too ;-) Here is a photo together with one of my grandma :-)

We will keep updating our blogs if the time is allowed ;-)

MM: Trisha Yearwood - How do i live

Hmm... what shall i say about Trisha Yearwood's "How do i live" - Love song -. I just can say it's true, it's the way i feel about my wife (and she doesn't know yet that i wrote this, she will be surprised after the holidays when she looks up the baby blog :)).

Another surprise will it be as there is one of her favorite actors in this video - NICOLAS CAGE. The movie is called "Conair" and shall be excellent, too.

Guess i have to look the movie together with her after she will see this video here and we'll do it :)

Hope you enjoy this week's Music Monday!

Visiting our relatives

Hello visitors and readers of All about babies and kids,

like you may know already we are already in holidays (join our Holiday-Contest to win prizes worth over 200$ + 25.000+ EC, good luck).

We are visiting the relatives in Penang and Kedah in Malaysia. It's our first visit together with our baby boy Timmy!!

My grandma and my aunties are longing to see Timmy since we've mailed them the pictures of our cute Timmy XD. Well, i do hope they don't focus too much on the Timmy's hands and nine fingers. I know they'll do and give us several advises :( But what ever, I don't know how they will react when they see him the first time as they don't know yet, how it really looks like.

I look forward visiting them and i hope there won't be too much critics on me as mother. You have to know, Chinese are sometimes very superstitious, especially in cases when your kid isn't developed "normal".
They might blame me on causing this appearance to Timmy, for example by using a scissor and cutting things during pregnancy (as if this would cut his finger in womb??) *LOL*
Frankly, i do hate to hear these kind of talking! But i know, it will happen... again like on the first day of his birth :( ARGH!!

However, i think it will still be a happy journey because nevertheless Timmy is really cute and yeah... clever ... XD

Ok, hopefully we can update the blog if there is an internet connection in my grandma's house.

Photo update*

Baby milestone : 7 & 8 months

When Timmy was 7-month-old, he could stand while holding on something, and now, he likes to stand up but he still needs to hold something to support himself up ;-) He also started cruising, his physical development amazed us!

He also liked to play pee-ka-poo with us, he always smiled or laughed happily when we played this games together. Oh ya, he also would give you five if you would play the game of "give me five"...haha......he is really such an adorable baby!!!

So far, Timmy does not experience stranger anxiety. What he does is always observe first, and then he will give the strangers his sweet smile if they play with him.

For the age of 8 months, Timmy already started showing us his wants by crying!! If we take away his "toy", then he will cry or perhaps he is complaining about we interrupt him...hahaa.... Ok, sometimes we made this purposely, just only wanted to see his cute reaction XD.

We look forward to hear "mama" or "papa" from him, so far, i only can hear "mama" from him when he is crying...but my hubby said i think too much....XD...... However, at this age, he does very well during our flash card session. He always shows me the correct answers....hehe...i know i should not test him...but there is always temptation to test :-(

Oh ya, he also tries to pick up my hair which i dropped on the bed with thumb-finger pincer grasp. However, he still needs a lot of practices.

WW: Start of Carnival season in Germany

These are some of the members of a Carnival group. They walk with several thousand different persons in the streets during the Carnival season.

It starts every year on 11th November at 11:11 am. Usually on this day it's just a meeting of the group members in their club house and some pictures for the media.

The real season starts in January and lasts usually until February on the day when the Christian start their fasting period.

Gymboree Play & Learn Review (Tropicana)

Today i would like to make a review about the Gymboree trial class that we sent Timmy to. It's already about a month ago, but i could not find a time to make the review.

We were disappointed when we were told Timmy was the only baby in this level (Play and learn - Level II, 6 - 10 month young babies). One of our purpose was hoping that Timmy could interact with other babies. Well...the advantage of being the only baby in this class is that the teacher would pay more attention on Timmy ;-)

Basically, Timmy enjoyed the activities, he showed his curiosity all the time. And frankly, he was doing very well. The teacher said so, too :-) In my eyes, some of the activities seems difficult for Timmy to complete, but i was surprised that he could actually complete them (except one, crawling down a slide) for his first time!

The activities are finished within 45 minutes, it's really a rush!!! Once Timmy had completed one, he were asked to complete another activity immediately! It's always rushing here and there (can't imagine what it will be like in the other groups with several kids). Tired for us too ;-) haha...... From my observation, i believe Timmy wanted more time for himself to explore all the used equipments.

Basically, we were quite ok with the class since Timmy enjoyed the activities and interacted well with the teacher.

I hope there will be some more babies signing up for this class. I really hope Timmy can make some new friends soon ;-)
