Flashback Friday #40

18 October 2011: It was an afternoon spent at Changi Airport again! As with the last trip to the airport, Blake and I went to all three terminals, and we played till Sean joined us after work to have dinner together. Before heading home, we spent some time at the playground in terminal 3!

Crawling around cos that's still the fastest way to move for him!
During this time, Blake has yet to walk in multiple steps yet.

P.S. The next Flashback Friday is a surprise that I got from Blake when we were having some fun at terminal 3! It was a very, very pleasant surprise, so be sure to check back next Friday! J

Flashback Friday #39

13 October 2011: I brought Blake to the beach again. This time round, we spent time playing with sand! Hehe.

Initially, I didn't intend to let Blake go onto the sand. I solely planned to just let him sit on the plastic sheet I had brought along and just enjoy the sea breeze + view. But Blake slowly ventured out of the plastic sheet on his own, and there was no stopping him!

He enjoyed himself quite a bit, but I think he had a hard time moving around. During this period, he was still unable to walk unassisted, and crawling on the sand was painful for him, with all the sand and tiny stones.

Spent the afternoon there, before proceeding to the swimming club (mad love the club's location! Hehe.) to wash up and have dinner with Sean, who joined us after work.

First, a meal at McDonald's and playing at the playground!

Twenty Questions

I know, I know... It's Sunday today, but I'm working on something that's part of Tuesday's Thoughts... But after reading a couple of other mommies' answers to these 20 questions, I want to join in too!!!

1. Was your pregnancy planned, and how old were you?

For Blake, I came home from work one day and told Sean, "LET'S HAVE A BABY!" Haha. I was 23.

For Nakayla, I turned to him and said, "Let's try for baby number two!" :P I was 25.

2. What were your reaction?

Both times, I was grinning from ear to ear. Haha!

3. How did you find out you were pregnant?

For Blake, I was patiently waiting for the day to arrive for me to test myself. Already had the test kits bought and on standby!

For Nakayla, I couldn't wait to test. I tested (and wasted) with so many pregnancy test kits. Always testing earlier than I was supposed to. After 3 months passed and nothing positive came up, I gave up. Then next thing I know, I was late and it was positive!

4. Who did you tell first?


5. Did you find out the sex?

Yup. I wanted to know, both times. Haha.

6. Did you have morning sickness?

For Blake, no.

For Nakayla, I only felt a little nauseousness and loss of appetite. No actual vomiting.

7. What did you crave?

For Blake, Chocolate ice cream, fast food

For Nakayla, Chinese food - especially Bak Chor Mee (Minced meat noodles)

But neither cravings were so bad that I had to have it.

8. Who / What irritated you the most?

People who push and shove me, even when I was heavily pregnant. And those who snatch seats from me on public transport! Haha.

9. Did you wish you had a different gender from what you obtained?

For Blake, no.

For Nakayla, I was half-hoping for a boy. But my original plan (like can plan like that, haha!) was elder brother, younger sister. And I got what I originally wanted. And I must say, having another girl in the family is really good! Haha.

10. How many kilos did you gain during the entire pregnancy?

For Blake, I gained about 15kg.

For Nakayla, I gained about 10kg.

11. Where did you think the baby was conceived?

At home, for sure. Hahahaha!

12. Did you have any complications during the pregnancy?

Nothing major.

For Blake, I had spotting in the first trimester.

For Nakayla, I had low lying placenta.

13. Where did you give birth?

Gleneagles! :D

14. How many hours were you in labour?

I honestly have no idea when it started...

15. Who watched you give birth?

Both times - Sean, my gynae and the nurses

16. Was it natural, or C-Sect?

For Blake, Natural with Epidural

For Nakayla, Natural with only laughing gas (nearly died when I couldn't have epidural!)

17. Did you take medication to ease the pain?

For Blake, after giving birth, I took painkillers (tablets) and had a further injection when the epidural wore off in the middle of the night and it hurt like mad!

For Nakayla, after giving birth, I only took painkillers (tablets).

18. When was your child born?

Blake, 9 September 2010

Nakalay, 21 November 2012

19. What is his / her name?

Blake Maximus Wang Rui Xiong 王睿雄

Nakayla Rose Wang Rui Xuan 王睿璇

20. How old is he / she today?

Blake will be 2 years 7 months old in two days time!

Nakayla will be 5 months old come 21st!

Saturday Morning Snapshots #5

It rained, and Blake wants to head out to play. After last week's hospitalization, NO WAY. Instead, we took out the out DDR mat we had bought when we got our Wii console, and got Blake grooving to the rhythms! Haha. He had so much fun, he was so tired, and preferred to just sit and lie on the mat after a few songs!

Flashback Friday #38

5 October 2011: Blake started to explore more during feeding time, and he ventured into pulling both his legs up from his baby chair, and setting them on the table. He only knows how to bring it up though. He had no idea how to put them back down, and it gets him a little frustrated when he's done with his feet on the table. Haha. It's a funny look for sure!
