Baby first time flying with airplane

On 23rd March 2010 was the big day for Timmy as we headed to the Senai Airport to take our flight back to Kuala Lumpur. It's always difficult to travel with kids under 2 years in the airplane. They don't know yet how to react when you get the pressure in the ears.

The best tips when you fly the first time with your baby
  • Take a pacifier with you and put it in the mouth of your baby when the airplane starts to take off (and lands) and look that your baby is sucking it until you don't feel anymore pressure in your own ears
  • Give your baby something to eat, so that it chews during the take off and landing
  • Take a bottle with fluids (water, fruit juice, milk) and feed your baby, so that it always sucks the fluids during the time when the airplane takes off or lands
We tried both methods and only the last one worked for some minutes. After we landed in Kuala Lumpur, Timmy hit with his hands on his heads. This meant for us that it wasn't completely successful and he might have been dizzy or got a headache. For luck he didn't have any other severe symptoms because after one day with a lot of sleeping he felt already better and didn't show anymore signs of hitting with his hands on his head.

MM: Merton - Chatroulette Piano 2nd Sensation

In case you haven't seen already the first video of Merton, who plays a song to the randomly chosen Chatroulette members, you should have a look at his second improvisation video. For me it's slightly better than the first one. The first video had to be edited after it had been already a big viral success and you'll see now some pixel-faces.It's really worth more than one laugh when he surprises the other Chat members :)

Timmy loves the flash cards again!

I have stopped showing flash cards to Timmy for a while.

Recently i start showing him the flash cards again.

He seems to be very excited to look at the flash cards.

After i have shown one group of cards, he wants to see more.

Afterwards, i show two cards in front of him,

and request him to pick up a card.

Yeah! He picks up the right one.

Then i request him to pick up another one,

he does pick up the correct one as well.

This does not really surprise me,

because normally Timmy picks up the correct card when he is in good mood.

For sure, we clap our hands loudly and give him a hug and kiss.

And say he is doing great :-)

I am happy that Timmy loves the flash cards again.

There was a period Timmy did not like at all.

And now the hard time was away :-)

Learn to be independent

Lately, Timmy always wants to learn to feed himself. I let him "play" his food. Look at him, how messy it was!

There are still many trial and errors to go. Timmy, we hope that you will know the technique to feed yourself soon :-)

WW: Timmy - 1 year old!

First Birthday Timmy, birthday cake, family photo

What an interesting day for Timmy!

Today we went to make the passports for me (Lupin) and Timmy. Like you can imagine from a government office, the process of getting things done there can take time. Especially when some things are missing as we didn't know that they want instead of the Identity card his birth certificate (which meant we had to drive home again to collect it) as a proof of his existence. After we left the first time at 8:30 am we took a quick break at home around 10:30 am and left again short after 11 am. Usually the sleeping time for Timmy.
Luckily i wore the comfortable baby sling, otherwise Timmy would be already very fussy. Back in the government office we still had to wait until 12:30 pm (we took the number already at 10 am) to submit the two forms for the passport. Luckily they split the submission for passports in two groups - one group is for any adult and our group was for parents with kids and retired persons (age older than 55 or 60).

This was a very good experience for Timmy as he has seldom contact with other babies/kids in his age. As soon as he saw other kids running around or being on the arms of their parents, he looked at them. Observed them at first what they are doing and what their reactions are and was in the mood to socialize with them. His first step is now usually that he waved his hands (which probably means hi or goodbye). If he was in reach of the babies, he tried to touch their arms, hands or bodies, most of the time they shacked hands ;)

We felt that he enjoyed being around these kids as for now we don't have the opportunity in Kuala Lumpur to find a group with the similar age.

After the submission of the documents we had to wait again because they made their lunch break from 1 - 2 pm. Another 1 1/2 hour went by until we could leave the -with hot and stuffy air filled - immigration office.

The 2-years-passports cost RM100 for each person. Martin said it's quite expensive compared to a German passport which would be valid for 10 years (for adults, babies a few years less).

After we took our lunch, Timmy had his first hair cut. Surprisingly, Timmy was very "obedient", he even did not move his head and body when the hairdresser cut his hair. Usually when you touch his head with your hand or put something on his head, he would immediately try to grab your hand or the item on his head. Or when we feed him in the high chair, he looses often his patience after a few minutes and tries to stand up and turns around in the high chair. That's why we thought Timmy would get impatient, scared or even cry at the hair dresser (like the kid on the picture *lol). We guess now it was because the hair dresser used the electric hair cutter instead of the scissor that gave him a new experience & feeling on his head (when it's vibrating). Timmy really gave us lots of surprises in the last few days!

Timmy, we love you! We love all the surprises that you gave us. "muacks.."

Asthma: BPA and Folate could be the reason!

Asthma in America - a serious diseaseA new study shows that mice who are pregnant and have been exposed to BPA -a common controversial chemical which hides in plastic bottles and aluminium lining of food and beverage cans- are more likely to let their babies develop Asthma in their future life!

A second study suggests that the intake of Folate during pregnancy might lead to Asthma from the age of 3 in case you took too much. As Folate is usually important during pregnancy because it can prevent neural tube defects it seems that it's the same with every vitamin supplement - Taking more doesn't necessarily mean it's better for the health!
