This is such an overdue post!!! I’ve been kept busy these two months with me being back at work, Naomi starting a new daycare centre with Dylan and Dylan being sick on & off! Life is crazy hectic almost everyday but always fulfilling at the end of the day.
We celebrated Dylan’s FIRST birthday last month! Can’t believe he’s ONE already!! It still feels like yesterday that I just had my newborn baby. And really, it feels like my second baby’s growing up sooooo fast compared to my first one!
We had friends and family and Dylan’s Godparents come celebrate his special day with us. We enjoyed everyone’s company so much and I’m glad that everyone went home with a full belly that day, hahaha!
Prepping for a party is so. much. work. though! I’m glad I don’t have to plan for one anytime soon 😂
DIY-ed their party hats with materials from Spotlight!
Didi enjoying his birthday cupcake! I baked them especially for him (egg-free recipe) ‘cos of his egg allergy.
Dylan, you’re growing up way too fast and way too soon! Mummy pray that you’ll grow to be healthier and stronger 💪🏻 for you fall sick way too often! We love you so, so very much!!! Please don’t be so small gas and fake cry everytime your sister touches you, lol! And keep smiling and laughing for you bring so much joy into our lives 😍😘
Now, time for me to look back at his baby pics from a year ago to this day! 😢
Dylan is 2 months old today!!!! 🎉🎉And man, dare I say, it's easier to put him to bed at night these days! I had been struggling with his sleeping pattern before this because he's a very light sleeper and he will wake up every hour at night for a feed. Not forgetting to mention, the whining and crying within 5 minutes of me putting him back to his cot after a feed. So, I basically have to repeat this for numerous times until he finally settles down for a "deeper" sleep, which only lasts for an hour 😭😭 On nights when I really can't take it anymore, he gets to lie down on papa's chest and sleep 🙊 And he lovesssss it! Sleep issues aside, he is slowly getting more interactive these days!! LOVE, love, love his cooing whenever he's awake and alert and sees our familiar faces… 😘 Oh, oh and his rolls!!! 🥐😍I must show them off come the warmer months hahahaha!!
Oh heyyyyy! Look who turns 3 months old today? 🎊 This tough one is outgrowing his clothes pretty quickly, haha! He's such a happy and chirpy bub – looooves cooing and talking to people! All grins and smiles and even the bonus chuckles when we talk to him hehehehehe… 😂 Please stay this happy my little sunshine!!! 💓
Happy 4 months old, didi!!! Mama is very happy that you’re growing well so! But mama’s not so happy about the sleep regression and fussiness and mama’s cold 😭🤧 Mummy’s very sorry that I become very impatient at times. I’ll try to be better, I promise! Please continue to love me like you do now; flashing me that smile of yours whenever I look your way 🙂 Daddy and I love you very, very much!! 😘
Happy 5 months old, my sweetheart!!! You’re my little happy pill ‘cos you’re always smiling when someone smiles at you! Thank you for being so patient with me when you need me (‘cos I can’t always tend to your needs immediately but mummy’s trying my best). The only way to get you to nap/sleep now is if I hold you in my arms. I may complain about it now but there will come a day when I’d do anything to get one of these days back. I love you so much, my son! 💋 Fun fact: Jiejie had her 5 mths old photo shoot taken on this armchair too!
Dearest didi is half-year old today!!! 🎉 Oh, my sweetheart, you’re growing up too fast!! You’re such a happy bub and you’re always so generous with your kisses when I carry you in my arms. 😚 As of today, you still don’t really fancy the apple purée that I made you, hahaha! Mummy’s gonna give you something new to try soon okay? Love you so, so very much my little manja! 😘😘
Happy 7 months old my darling Dylan!!! 🎉7️⃣🈷️🍼My sweet boy has 2 cutesy teeth now and is still chewing every thing he can get his hands on like crazy!! Loves his food and drinking water from a spoon! He is also more aware of unfamiliar faces around him now and constantly seeks out for me or daddy when someone else is carrying him, haha! Separation anxiety is real too these days I find myself lugging him with me everywhere I go or he’ll scream his head off. Other than that, he’s a really happy and chilled out baby! Please stay this way, my sweet, sweet child!! I feel a tug in my heart these days when I think about how much closer you are to you turning one… Nevertheless, you are forever close to mama’s heart ❤️
Happy 8 months old my 宝贝!! 8️⃣🈷️🎈🎊 I look at you each day and feel so glad that you’re still a baby now. I love your baby limbs, baby scent, baby voice, baby hair, baby giggles, baby teeth, baby breath and etc. I’m holding on to every inch of baby-ness about you because very soon, you’re not gonna be so “baby” anymore. Please don’t grow up so fast baby and let me love you a little more each day… 💙
Happy 9 months old my darling boy!!! 🎉 Look at how much you’ve grown! You were inside mummy’s belly for 9 months just 9 months ago.🤰🏻How time flies… You’ve got FOUR little teeth now, which is awfully cute! But I’m not sure if I like the biting that comes with them! 😩 My poor shoulder 🤧 You’re such a curious little monkey right now and gosh, do you crawl. I’m certain that at this pace, you’ll be standing up by yourself without any support very soon! Wishing you would stay a baby for a little longer. For I’m going to miss this stage of you very much! And that baby scent of yoursssss… 😍😍 #exceptionpostonlentseason #becausemysonis9monthsoldtoday #andbecauseitsmybirthday #backtofastingtata

Our sweetest boy turns 11 months old today! 🎈🎊 Can’t believe we’re counting down days until he turns 1!! On one hand, I feel like I haven’t spent enough time with this little one ‘cos he’s growing up too fast right in front of my eyes. On the other hand, some nights feel like a lifetime of dreadfulness for me because of his bedtime tantrums and whatnot. 😪 I’ll remind myself to be kinder to you and to myself. And most of all, to savour this last bit of baby-ness of you before you turn 1 and enter into the toddler phase. We love you, Dylan! 😘
Our darling boy turns 1️⃣ today!!! 🎉🎂🎈🍭🍪🍦🍰🍫🍿🍧🍡🍩🍼🥟🍗🍓🍇🍊🍑🍎🥝🧀 Oh how time flies… One year ago this day, I received God’s gift of life for the second time by giving birth to our dear son, Dylan. I still remember his soft cry as he came out of me; his weight on my chest as they placed him on me immediately after. Dearest Dylan, we wish for you to grow up to be happy, healthy, loved and to always walk with Jesus. You can do all things, for in Him, nothing is impossible! Happy birthday, sweetheart! We love you so much! ❤️ . . . . . . #dylansoong
