|Your Mind is 27% Cluttered|
Your mind is very free. You've liberated yourself from most worries and problems.
And even if something does start to clutter your mind, you're easily able to let it go.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can't change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
And though, I didn't get all what I want, I have lots of choices now for my summer wardrobe.
|Your Love is Represented by a Purple Rose|
For you, love is all about chemistry and attraction. You totally believe in love at first sight.
If a relationship is right, you know it from the start.
You're often sure of your feelings. And you're not afraid to express them.
I did this for fun and out of curiousity but the result isn't entirely true and doesnt really speak for myself. I don't believe in love at first, slightly or kind of. But still fun!

This sleeping position prompted me to put pillows on his sides so he can't roll-over though putting pillows on baby's bed are not recommended. And it doesn't stop him from moving away from them and rolled-over.
Our BIG Guy is not a fussy eater, I'm proud to say that. I just hope he will stay the same until he's a tot and with vege on his diet. Though, you can see a sour-face when he doesnt like what he's eating yet he'll swallow it.
At this stage, it is ironic that sometimes I want destruction while he's eating so he won't concentrate on holding the spoon rather on the things around him. We've tried feeding him outdoor so he can see the birds and colorful plants - diverting his attention away from eating and I can have the total control of the spoon and food. All these to prevent him from screaming the house down because he wanted to hold the spoon himself.
(i didn't use bibs if he'll have a bath after feed but i found out that pear juice leaves stain on his clothes so i eventually use one every time he eats)
Sometimes, he's not really interested on his food but on the spoon itself - to chew something hard to soothe his aching gums. Good thing we bought a not point-ended spoon so he won't hurt himself.
But more often, he can down his cereals in just minutes - the bowl swept and clean - and wanting more.
And he now knows that it's his feeding bowl, because when I'm mixing his cereal and show it to him, he would give me a smile. I've also started to make his cereal wee lumpy so he can't blow raspberry, it ending on his face and mine.
He's movements are more coordinated now and his dexterity is quite developed. I usually read book or magazine when feeding him and he would stop eating and reach for the reading material - sometimes just holding it and flipping pages but more often straight to his mouth. He can also grab his teether littered on the bed and hold it while sucking for longer time.
Oh he loves sitting on your legs while you rock him so a rocking horse is on the christmas shopping list. Plus a new baby car seat. He's growing out of the baby capsule. The baby capsule that we hired is due for return early next year but you can extend it for another month if the baby is still small and fits well on it. But Jens feels too bit on it already.
I can go on and on and on.. but that's it for now. LOL. His ears might be burning now.
By the way, I end up calling our Big Guy, Jens and not Ian. I had a change of mind and heart as to his name. :)
Using both hands, stroke top of baby's head in a circular motion. Using flat fingers, massage from brow to templates. With fingertips, massage around jaw in small circles. With flat fingers stroke chest/tummy in a heart shape.
Milk the arms one at a time, from shoulder down then gently massage hands and fingers. Massage tummy in clockwise circles. Milk legs, then massage soles of feet with your thumb. Gently rub toes. Lay baby on tummy across your thighs. Support buttocks with one hand while stroking from shoulders to bottom. Comb his back with fingertips. To finish, enjoy a cuddle.

And speaking of gifts, MCJ one afternoon was making a mental list and I fall on the category of naughty. Hummmm, I wonder what will he give me. I really didn't want any, but it came to my mind to have an ipod especially when I see a sale one on the catalogue. But I don't really need one. Have to re-think on what I really want.

Eight things I have learned this past year:
One warm afternoon, went out the backyard to have a breath of fresh air.
The little boy doesn't want to feel little so Mummy placed his "bumbo" on a delapidated backyard chair.
Then it started to drizzle, "hurry up inside for my beanie Mum".
"Birds are twitting, wanting their food. I look up the sky, and there they are perch on the electric cable. "
"Careful Bub that Magpie won't pluck your eyes."
Mum said, I'm too adorable that paparazzi swarmed in.
