She calls me Mama!

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 30, 2007

After a few days of observation, I confirm now that my baby knows how to call me. She calls me “Ma Ma”. Starting from few days back, I already heard she called me ” Ma Ma”. However, I just want to make sure is she really refer to me. So… I just wait for a few days and observed carefully.

Now I am happily announcing it to all of you that when she said ” Ma Ma” , she does mean mummy. How would I know? Once she saw me come out from the bedroom every morning, usually she will straight away hop into my arms since last 2 months I think. But now, before she can reach me, she will call out loud “Ma Ma” first.

Also, every time when she prepared to walk to me, she will call “Ma Ma” too. Then, if she knock on something and feel hurts, she will also cried out loud with the word “Ma Ma” almost immediately. At the same time, she will look for me, or walk to me straight away if I am around.

Actually, it’s rather obvious that every time when she wants me to carry, she will call “Ma Ma” too. Now, almost all day long I can hear her keep calling “Ma Ma”. It’s like “Ma Ma” this, “Ma Ma” that… non stop.

Oh! Dear… Finally… I got your word. I am “Ma Ma”. In fact, she is practicing “Pa Pa” now. But, since daddy always not around, sometimes she just forget. Daddy… don’t get upset, all right? Your time will come. 😉

Anyway, there is a problem here. Just because we also teach her to call her maternal grandma (my mother) “Ma Ma” ( means grandma in Hokkien) since her younger age, it seems she calling my mum “Ma Ma” too. So how am I going to correct it now? There is 2 “Ma Ma” in the house now. I guess I will just have to wait until she manage to call me “Mummy” one day. 😥


Do we really need the rod?

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 29, 2007

I guess caning kids had never been the culture of my family. Even as early as my grandfather, he never cane my mum. And, of course, my mum never cane me as well. However, we still have cane in the house. But, that doesn’t mean we have to really cane our kids. In fact, the cane is mostly used to frighten the dog.

I will give you a good example why we shouldn’t cane our children. My hubby has been cane by her mum when he was a boy. And, he practically tell me every now and then that he will never do that to his girl. And, as for me, I feel proud of my mum every time when people told me they’ve been cane by their parents during their young days.

Just ask yourself a simple question before you use the cane, if you believe canning can solve the problem.

” Do you like people to cane you?”

“If your answer is no. Then, do you still expect your kids to forgive you for canning them?”

I believe there are so many other ways to discipline our kids. It is not necessary to use cane. I still strongly believe that our kids will appreciate it so much as they grow up, if you never cane them. At least, I did.

I guess that’s it. That’s what I want to share here. Thanks to Judy Chow and shoppingmum.

I like my Baby sunglass

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 28, 2007

Oh, yeah! Look at this girl in pink! This is exactly my chicky baby. 😛

As you can see, she enjoyed walking around to showcase her sunglass. This is quite a good sunglass that I only get it for RM5 in the night market near my house. Its plastic is kind of soft and flexible. Hardly break. In fact, it should be considered unbreakable as it’s still fine when it got twisted. Perfect for kids use. And, it’s really tiny. Thus, fit’s my girls face well. 😛

Actually, I bought it quite some time ago. At first, we adults are the one who get excited with this sunglass. Always wanted to put it on for her. And, she will took it off immediately. She prefer to let us wear it. She really just enjoy take it off from us at that moment. But, as we praise her when we put it on her. She finally likes it. And now, she understands that’s hers. Whenever she asked for my sunglass, I will give her hers. She can accept that, but sometimes she just want to play with both. LOL! Naughty Elizabethl! :roll:


Spaghetti for her

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 27, 2007


See what I’ve got here. I am going to cook spaghetti with traditional tomato source for my girl. This is just a simple baby food recipe that I created myself. And, it’s really easy to get it serve as most of the ingredients are readymade.


1) Organic Spinach Spaghetti

2) Prego traditional Spaghetti source

3) Broccoli

How to cook:

1) cook the spaghetti ( about 5 sticks) with a 1/4 teaspoon of salt in boil water for about 20 to 30 minutes.( I want it to be really soft as it would be easy for my baby to consume. )

2) Add the broccoli into the boiling water 10 minutes before you take out the spaghetti.     ( Make sure it’s still green so that it’s still nutritious.)

3) Once it’s done, take them all out. Cut only the broccoli flowers out and leave the hard stem aside. (That’s what I always did for my girl.)

4) Add only 1 or 2 teaspoons of the readymade tomato source.

5) Cut the spaghetti into very small pieces. And , serve it.

It’s delicious. She loves it. 😛

However,  I am still learning through some cookbooks and family recipes online. Hopefully I can make my own source soon. So that my little Lizzy can enjoy a healthier meal. :)


She asked for it

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 27, 2007

This is Elizabeth’s new toy phone that daddy just bought for her this Sunday. She already learn how to talk on a phone about a month ago. Thus, she likes phone. Most importantly, she will ask for something whenever we bring her to a shop. If she has nothing in her hands while when we walk out from the shop, she will start crying. OMG! She might just be another future shopping queen! :roll:

I think by now she can understand perfectly that we buy things from shops and bring them home. So, this is what her father get for her at the mart inside Caltex petrol station, when we stop for fill up. It’s about RM5. Girls are girls. This phone with pearl string seems please her. However, It’s better to cut this pearl string out of the phone, just in case she might swallow the beads if the string accidentally break. 😛

I guess we just have to get ready that once our baby reach certainly level of understanding, they will start being demanding in terms of material wants. And, I guess at this 11th month stage, it’s just the beginning. 😆


For Her 1st Birthday

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 26, 2007

White is always my favorite color for clothing. And, look what I’ve chose for my girl — a beautiful white princess dress for her 1st birthday. I think she will certainly looks gorgeous in this dress.  And, it’s best if she likes hair band. However, I am sure she will take it off as soon as I put it on her head, just like what she did to her hat. :roll:

Thus, I am still looking for the right accessory for her to go with this beautiful dress. As I search around, I had fell in love with a beautiful silver jewellery online. It’s kind of dainty. This child’s’ silver bracelet with single coin pearl has showed its simplicity at its best. I think this fantastic designer jewellery will match her dress well. I wonder if she likes it too?


My First Tag

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 25, 2007

Looks like Elizabeth got her first tag here now. This is sweet as she just get her first award for this blog about a week ago. Really thanks to this vain mummy who has sent this first tag to mummy. However, mummy thinks it’s more appropriate to do it here rather than in her personal blog cause it’s about “The age that I wish my child will stay to be “.

Oh! I just can’t wait anymore. Can we start now? Yippie! 😉

It’s really hard for mummy to decide as I am still so young. However, I think she would prefer me to grow up faster and stay in the age of 3 or 4. This is because through her experience of teaching in Kindy before, she still feels children in the age of 3 to 4 is really cute and lovely.

This is the time most of them will talk fluently. They start to communicate well. They are still clingy. But, they can be independent in certain ways such as having their own ideas. They learn up things real fast in this age. Thus, they will always surprise us with their unique thoughts and impressive deeds. Also, they are still busy exploring and just won’t easily give in to rules yet. They are still cute cute baby, but just much more intelligent one. 😛

But, Dear Elizabeth, just take your time to grow cause mummy enjoy every moment of your growing time. In fact, no matter how old are you, you are always my little girl. :)

And, I would like to pass this on to:

1) Lian

2) Chinnee

3) Kiasumum

Remember to check this out when you’ve grown up, my girl! This is your first time on kiddie rides. Yeah… you have your kiddie rides on your 11 months. Right after you manage to walk! 😛

Toy of the day

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 15, 2007

Mummy is getting busy with other matters nowadays. She don’t blog much for the past 2 weeks. But I guess she just need some good rest. Then… here she is again! She better did as I don’t want her to miss out all my moments. These magical moments of mine being a baby would be something worth keeping records of. That’s what my dad said. He is the one who only left with one piece of baby photo for his early childhood. Poor thing, aye?

So… what am I doing today that worth noting down? Mum thinks should be this one below.

I just play with this soft and sticky ball for the whole afternoon while listening to classical musics together with mum and grandma. I think those are great songs. Thus, I even clap for them.

This ball with smiley faces was bought long ago. That time I am just about 4 months.I don’t appreciate it at all at that time. Mummy asked dad to get it for me when someone sell it in a restaurant, thinking of I might love to see the multicolors light blinking. But, mum told me I don’t even look at it when I first got it.

However, I start to fall in love with it since 1 or 2 months back until now. I enjoy swing it like “yoyo”. And, it’s an interesting toy cause once I hit it in the ground, there are lights in it start blinking. Blue… Red… Purple and green. Nice colors. 😛

Anyway, I am wearing one of my new shirt which mom just bought it for me last Saturday in Parkson, Gurney Plaza. Singlet is always the best for me as I am always hot! 😛

I think mum is going to show you more of my new clothings. Yeah… she bought many of them last weekend.


I walk and walk and walk

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 10, 2007

Oh! I seldom crawl on the floor anymore cause that hurts my knee. I prefer to walk now, especial in the house. In fact, I am kind of excited every time I walk on my own. Feel so amazing! It’s unbelievable. Finally, I walk. Thus, I am always smiling as I walk. Just like this.

Faster! Faster! Faster! If I can run now, I can enjoy playing hide and seek with daddy. That would be so much fun! Hooray! 😛

Since my one and only fever experience, mum getting worried about me getting cold sometimes. So, she keep searching for baby jacket. She saw many. But, she still think it’s not something for me. (Yeah… she is always very particular when choosing my clothes.) Thus… she just keep looking for the right one.

And… taadaa…

Here it is. my 2 in 1 baby jacket. Yes! This is a jacket which I can wear both sides. So, instead of one, I got two jackets now! Sometimes just plain pink; Sometimes pink in stripes. Fun, aye? Nice?

It’s from Mothercare. Mum’s favorite. Many of my shirts, socks and tights are from Mothercare. Mum says, they are lovely, durable and stretchable. 😛

I clap

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 2, 2007

I used to afraid of the sounds of people’s clap when I was a baby until about 6 months old. Strange aye? I really don’t know why… it’s too loud may be; or too sudden most of the time, a bit unprepared. :sad:

Anyway, I started to get used with it a few months back. Then, I began to enjoy when others clap for me as I understand this is a way to praise me for my funny tricks or clever deeds. 😛

Thus, I must learn how to clap too. It’s fun! Finally, I made it since last week. And, I keep showing my new talent to everyone who requested it. Sometimes, I just did it myself. Just for fun!

I know there are so much more to learn. I am working hard on it. :)
