Before October...

So before we bade farewell to September, I need to recall the snippets of events that we have encountered in just a span of 3 days over the long weekend.

Celebrations, celebrations and more happy celebrations to rejoice.

Bosco baby shower

Firstly, it was the arrival of lil Bosco - Chloe's younger brother. I love the smell of infants! They have a distinctive scent that makes you want to sniff at them like a maniac. Melts my heart when I saw Bosco falling into deep slumber after a satisfied milk feed. Reminds me Jayden used to be that tiny as well. :)

For Bosco's shower gift, I got carried away this time, thinking that I should put my rusty arty-farty skills back to use. And so.... ....

I decided to make my own diaper cake!

Ingredients: -
Receiving blanket
Burp cloth
A pair of baby shoes
And lots & lots of ribbons & tape
And I must say that it was not easy at all! I can wrap a square, rectangle shape box anytime. But to wrap something circular is even tougher than changing diapers for my son! Sorry Dewi for being my guinea pig. Hope you didn't have a tough time removing the double sided tapes. :P

It was a pleasant surprise to see Lleyton there as well! The kids had a whale of time in Chloe's playroom.

It was a pity that we had to leave earlier as I wanted Jayden to take his nap before attending another birthday party in the evening.

Deon's 6th Birthday

It was Jayden's cousin's 6th birthday at Loyang Aloha. I must say, this has got to be the most extensive celebration we've ever been to! There were magic show, balloon sculptures, lots of toys to play with, face painting and alot of scrumptious yummy BBQ food. This is the reason why I often find my diet plans outside the window. ^_^

Oct babies 2nd Birthday Bash

From being in pregnancy, to delivering, to sharing baby woes, to celebrating their 1st year of milestone, this will be the 2nd year we're celebrating the birthdays for all the October 07 babies who are now toddlers.

How did we ever get this far?

Kudos to the bash committee for making this possible. And of course, the mummies whom we have shared our joys, poured our woes and all kept in the secrecy of our forum. kekekekek...

This year, we opt for an animal theme. We picked an Elephant balloon that was bigger than the son. I think it was me who wanted the Elephant, because Jayden couldn't stop calling it Monkey.

Happy Birthday to all October kiddos!

Next month, October. It is going to be another roller-coaster ride.

P/S: Thanks to Jessie for introducing this wonderful photo-editing software!

mrs tan,

I think I've uploaded the photos in FB. If not, can send it to you. Lleyton was very co-operative! that's why the photos were well taken. keke.
