Today - 16 months 2 weeks 1 day



Music class today. I kind of not looking forward as much as before because I prefer the previous teacher. The current one is more theoretical while the previous one focus more on how music helps the infant/toddler's mental and motor development. Anyway, Oli is moving on to the playgroup class soon and hopefully it's not the same music teacher. Need to find out. 

I hasn't been sleeping well since last week. Oli hasn't been able to sleep through and this is not because she needed milk. She didn't want to sleep in her own cot bed. Either she outgrown the cot bed or she didn't want to be alone in her own bedroom. She falls asleep almost immediately when she was brought in to our bed. Hence, having very bad headache today and I popped 2 panadol. I wonder when will this last, 

We went botannical again today but to another area and met up with serene and joash. Oli fed the turtles and fishes and learnt how to tear the bread into smaller pieces to drop them to the pond. I guess the running/walking up and down the slopes made Oli super tired and she asked to sleep by 8plus! I hope we can do this often, not everyday though! Mummy can be tired also.

Today - 16 months 2 weeks

Oli woke up at 520am and hubby brought her in to our bed. I made milk for her but she refused to allow me to feed her. She handed the bottle to daddy. Second time in 2 days. The first bottle of the day must be from daddy. It's so cute. I didn't know toddlers have a preference to whom gives them milk. 

Hence Oli woke up almost 9am thereafter and all plans were so-called foiled. We were supposed to up early and send daddy to work and then make way to ICA for her passport collection. So poor daddy had to take a train to work at 8am because he has a training to give. Before leaving for work, daddy even packed ready the diaper bag and got the documents ready for the passport collection. So nice. My hubby is really a super hubby and super daddy. There's so much little little things he does for the both of us.

It was crazy at ICA. The carpark was full and crazily packed with cars waiting for lots. Oli was making so much whining and I made her milk and got down to feed her. We were late as well. By the time we got to ICA, it was so crowded. Then I got very paranoid because lots of people were coughing and sneezing away. Oli got bored and wanted to stand on the chair. I stopped her and she cried so loudly that we excused ourselves. She refused to walk or even stand and I carried her with my handbag and a diaper bag for the next 30mins. Collect a passport only but seemed like so much work. 

We basically nua the afternoon away with playing and some reading. Oli was bored and her eyes went "ding! ding! ding!" when I said let's go out! She quickly grabbed her shoes and mine at the door. She was pacing up and down while waiting for the lift.



She's napping at this hour - OMG. I reckon she will slp very late and if she can't go back to sleep later, we will go and fetch daddy from his dinner talk later.

Today - 16 months 1 week 5 days 


Our Olivia knocked out in car by 745pm. We had a long day outside. Luckily she didn't have any meltdowns.

Morning is usually mad busy for me because I have to prepare her breakfast by 830am and set lunch to cook by 845am. Prior preparation, put her down for potty for her big business and bathe her. With single nap, luckily I do not need to put her down to sleep at 10am and early lunch means no milk at 10am as well. In between, I give her a piece of biscuits.

With a busy morning, I could hardly breathe, we left home before 12. Prior that, my helper and hubby spent almost an hour to get her fed before we headed out. I usually don't ask my helper to feed her but Oli asked for her today because she thought she was going out. Oli's strike is back! Sigh big time. 

It was Rachel's first birthday celebration. Nice roomy function room at SICC and Oli got to walk around and mingle with Rachel. Rachel took her first independent 3 steps today! I can't wait to see both gals play together. So far we haven got them to play and we should do one soon. Hubby and myself were so impressed by Rachel. She didn't fuss during lunch and finished a whole jar of porridge. I can't rem or I don't think Oli never fuss before? 

We came home and Oli refused to nap after an hour. Both of us were dying to nap. After preparing her dinner, I went ahead to take a cat nap with hubby while Oli was fooling around on our bed. Oli tme as so bored that she woke us up by patting us. I brought her out to play and I went to get ready for evening's outing. 



Janelle celebrates her baby shower and it was by the pool. So Oli can't wait to take a plunge. Then was the chairs. She was so obsessed with them that she started arranging them!?!? Needless to say about dinner. Tough under such situation but managed to get her eat still. 

So that sums up the long day we have. I hope Oli sleeps through because she hasn't been doing so for the whole of last week!

Today - 16 months 1 week 4 days 

Got a magazine for myself today and I can't wait to read. Oli is slpg right now on my bed. Bad move. I should have just left her on her cot bed when we got home earlier. I am now lying beside her typing this, hopefully after this I can switch on my MacBook and to make an appointment with ICA to collect her passport on Monday. 

Met up with Ash and Adrian for lunch and both treated me poulet and Starbucks. Was a short less than 2 hrs meet up and they needed to be back to work. I walked around with Oli to get some stuff before heading home. Man, she was crying the restaurant down for a while and slept shortly after till now. 

Oli has begun her food strike this week but she still managed to eat because we gave in to her rubbish on her food tray. At least it wasn't so bad today, she wanted to flip her story books which I thought at least she wants to read. 

Her lunch today:

Millet ramen with minced pork and spinach

Oli took her hep B vaccination today. Her route of vaccination is different from all kids and planned for till she is K1 and not 18m. So we will wait patiently till then, as long as she gets vaccinated. We have to trust what our pd had planned for Oli. 

So now she's finally beyond 10kg, grew 6cm since May and standing at 82cm. Head circumference grew as well at approximately 46cm. How long have we waited for this?  I don't need a chubby Oli but a growing Oli in a healthy way. I used to miss the chubby fats of Oli which were long gone with those milk strike/dehydrating days. Not anymore now. 

The long battling of viruses that inhibits her growth is somewhat making Oli a stronger kid now. She survived 2 major flu outbreak in infant care and 2 episodes of HFMD safe and sound. Not getting complacent and will continue to do my best to build her immunity well. Supplements help and her better diet from my meal plan more importantly helps. After wondering a million times if I am a lousy mum, I finally think I am doing well now. Haha. I said before right, happiness is simple as Oli finishes her meals and her bottle of milk.

Just done with baking choc chips banana pound cake for tmr breakfast. Hopefully it turns out well. 

So poor Oli got bitten by Iver today. Not once, but twice. It's swollen and a little bump on the bitten area. It's pretty common that kids fight and I don't blame anyone for this incident. Afterall they are only toddlers of less than 18m. When I picked Oli, I asked her who had bitten her and she pointed Iver. Iver was looking away trying to escape. It's so cute, they understand it's wrong to bite already I guess. 

Oli was taught by my helper to say "banana". After offering her a bite, she stops shouting banana and refuse to say banana. The following day she saw us eating banana, she shouted "bananana" and we were pestered by her to let her have a bite. When she learns new words or do anything new/funny/cute, it always send us laughing! 


Christine has an extra little tike coupe and gave us one. So nice. The other time, she gave us vtech walker when she has an extra one as well. Not forgetting, those presents she gave Oli during Christmas and birthday. They are all well loved by Oli. 




Oli pushed her coupe to our room last night and parked her coupe in our room.

Daddy left his iPhone in the toilet and I got Oli to pass to her daddy. After passing, she did this "hurray" pose. Whenever I sing "if you are happy and you know you shout hurray", she raises both arms up in the air. Not sure where she learnt it from because the school ask us as well. My gal.. Sometimes I am so amazed by what she does. 

Yesterday, while dressing Oli, I told her to stop rolling and be good and we will be going cycling later. When she's done, she got down the bed and headed straight to her trike and shouted for my attention. You know... Never lie to your kids, they know! Anyway, I meant it because we were done with dinner and bath early so we headed downstairs to wait for daddy. 

After dropping Oli off this morning, I went to the market and have breakfast. I thought to myself that life is such a pleasure even though I was just seated in a hot hawker centre having a bowl of fishball noodles that's only 3 dollars. Then I went to q for soya bean milk which cost 80cents only!?!? Happy. Then I went to buy cod fish for Oli after decided to introduce to her again after so many months. 
Today - 16 months 6 days

Weekends over! No need to work but still feel upset because weekends mean happy time for a family of three - complete. 


We went sentosa yesterday. Almost cancelled the outing because it rained way early in the morning and the sky was so gloomy. Just when we almost turned into our alternatives, the sun appeared and we resumed plan A. So we all made way to the beach and Oli was having a cat nap. When she woke up we immediately brought her to the sand and water and she was having so much fun splashing the water. Post fun times, we had pinic and left shortly. We bet to be back again! 



Today Oli added 2 vocabs - "milk?" "Nose". When she woke up at 8 by our side, she tapped her father to wake up and then she looked at me and said "milk?" for a total of 3 times. It was so cute because her milk comes with a "?". After her milk she then point to her nose and said "nose" like she was chanting. Hahah
