Packing the kids luggage

We'll be traveling to Penang by road on this coming weekend to attend a wedding function, and also visiting the island.

This would also be my 1st time traveling with both kids and I'm a bit excited. I have already prepared a checklist so that I won't miss out anything when packing the kids luggage. For Dillon it is much easier as he no longer takes milk and is diaper-free during day time. Anyway, these are the thing I've listed down:

- Sufficient outfits & diapers for 3 days 2 nights
- Shoes, socks & hats
- Baby wipes & diaper changing mat
- Baby bath & lotion
- Inflatable travel bathtub (for Kaith)
- Potty seat (for Dillon)
- Towels, handkerchiefs & bibs
- Milk powder, milk bottles, thermos flask, water bottle, cereals, feeding bowl & spoon (for Kaith)
- Water tumbler (for Dillon)
- Snacks, some small toys & books
- Sunscreen lotion
- Swim wear, swim ring, beach ball & beach toy play sets
- Antiseptic cream for mosquito bites & nappy cream (in case)
- The light weight umbrella stroller

Did I miss out anything essential?

Rocking Horse

I've been thinking to buy a rocking horse for Dillon since long time ago. But those that I've seen are either too small, too "plastic" or too expensive. And then recently I found this one made of Rattan ("rotan"), which I think is more practical and worth the money, although it doesn't look as fancy as those I've seen in Toys'r'us and Ikea. It is big and 2 kids can ride on it at one time, it is so durable that even I can ride on it.

Dillon is turning 2.5 y/o soon

It's been a while since I blog about my kids (mummy only busy blogging about her KK trip la, Bangkok trip la so selfish :P), so after the previous post about Kaith, now I should write something about Dillon too. :)

He is going to be 2.5 years old in 2 weeks time, getting more and more active & mischievous too. He enjoy going to the outdoor playground to play the swing, slides and basically running wild and his another favourite would be going to the pool.

He is not very good in talking yet but is learning at a steady pace. He speaks Mandarin most of the time (coz my maid speaks that) but he understands when I speak English to him too. He is also speaking a bit of Hakka dialect since my in laws speak the language to him.

Is he getting along well with meimei? It's pretty well I'd say, he always show his care & love to Kaith where he will hug & kiss her forehead, pick up toys for her and play with her, wipe her face when she sweats, and when we bring him out, he will "ask" meimei to come along too....... so I think he is doing a good job as gorgor. :)

Kaith at 10.5 months

I almost don't believe it, Kaith is already 10.5 months now and in less than 2 months time, she will be entering toddler hood.

Kaith weighs a healthy 8.7kg, and she has grow taller and look less chubby now, however her thighs still look "fleshy" though, hahaha LOL. Her hair has also grown a lot more and hence look more girlish (agree?). And she still likes sucking her 2 favourite fingers...... :P

She can't walk yet, but can stand alone very firm and is often cruising around the house. Her favourite game is Peekaboo and Dillon gor gor will always play with her; it's one of my greatest joy when seeing them both playing & laughing happily.

She is fully on formula milk Enfapro A+ now since I quit breastfeeding few weeks back. She will have milk in the morning, mashed food/cereal for lunch, milk again in late afternoon, porridge for dinner and last milk before bedtime. She has totally weaned off mid night feed 2 days after I quit breastfeeding, without much fuss, I guess maybe she "know" that she is no longer getting me to breastfeed her so she also "decided" to quit mid night feed? haha, anyway it's good to me also that she sleeps through the night now. :)

Mother's Day dinner

It's a big family gathering tonight with my sister & husband and their 3 kids (Kah Hoe, Kah Lok & Wai Ying), my brother & wife and their kid (Zheng Yang), myself & hubby plus Dillon & Kaith and of course the "main character" of the day, our dear mummy. Well to be exact, there are 4 mummies at the dinner table. :)

Me, my mum, elder sister & brother, we don't resemble each other eh? My sister look alike my dad, while my brother look alike my mum, as for me, I don't know who I resemble....??

I'm very grateful that I can still celebrate this meaningful day with my mum, who gave birth to me at age 42 and is now 71 years old. I nearly lost her 2 years ago when she was attacked by stroke. I pray for good health & happiness to my mum for many many more years to come.....

"Dear Mum, Happy Mother's Day to you and I love you". I also hope that Dillon & Kaith will love me as much as I love my mum now.

Happy Mother's Day to my MIL, sister - Angie, sister-in-law - Veronica & Airine, and all the blogger mums out there.

It's surely a happy dinner to my mum with all her children & grandchildren (Kaith isn't in this picture as she was sleeping)

My Mother's Day Fantasies

Thanks Ruth for passing me this tag, it's been ages since my last tag, haha. But since Mother's day is around the corner, this tag is quite fun! :)

On Mother's Day, hubby will treat me like princess, just like when we first started dating, he will also treat me to spa, manicure & pedicure, then accompany me shopping without being impatient (of course he will pay on what I spent, by default, haha :P); at night hubby will prepare dinner for me..... :)

I would love to know what are the fantasies of these beautiful mummies:
