little bubblelooz...

that's right, you're at the blog that my papa set up for me. mama's the one who's uploading the pics and stuff onto the blog. here's more info about me: my name's not bubblelooz.. (papa and mama just like to call me that...) my name is actually kienan foo zi en. i was supposed to be born on 18 jan 2007. but as God would have it, i only came out on 20 jan 2007. and this was after mama had to check-in to the hospital to induce labour so that i could come out. even then, it took one and a half days before mama started having contractions! after much pain, pushing and prayers, i was finally introduced to this big big world at 4.30pm on saturday, 20 jan 2007. my height/length - 52cm my weight - 3.49kg! okies, enough about me... but you do realise that this blog is all about me. so you can continue browsing through this blog and track my growth and development! :)

back home after the fireworks

ok... i'm typing this just before i go to bed. it's been a great weekend. kev finished his reservist just before national day, and kienan's gong gong and grandma (my parents!) booked a room for us to view the fireworks.. it was really nice to be able to see the fireworks up close!
and, it was great fun to have some relatives over to enjoy the national day parade. it was a good way to feel patriotic. after all, not every day is national day.
stay tuned for pics that were taken over the weekend.. they are all in other ppl's cameras right now! will post as soon as i've got them! :)

the milk battle...

as you can tell from the ticker-tape thingy at the top of the blog, kienan's been breastfed ever since he was born. while i'm proud that i've been able to breastfeed kienan for such a long time, i feel that it's time for me to weane him.

i've learnt quite a bit about kienan's character from this - that this little guy's really persistent! he refuses to take the bottle when i'm feeding it to him. and his favourite words at night when he sees me at home after coming back from nai nai's place... "drink milk.. drink milk.. pls drink milk"!

the milk battle, or rather, the whole weaning battle will have to commence soon.. probably sometime in september, when i can afford to take leave from the office. keep both of us in prayer pls, that kienan will understand that it's time for him to stop nursing at mommy's breast, and that i will be patient through this whole episode!

one thing's for sure though... i don't regret having breastfed him for this long a period of time. the feeling of closeness when kienan is nursing is amazing, indescribable!
but he IS 18.5mths old now.. and it's high time he's weaned...

hope that i'll have good news to report in time to come!

marvel-lous comics?

i was really impressed with kevin (kienan's papa) for doing up this comic strip thingy...
and it's so nice to have something done by kevin put up on the blog.
these pics were taken during our melbourne/sydney trip last June (2007) when we were there for the hillsong conference.

you can see how much kienan has grown since then...
i can already see how i'll miss his baby-ness as he grows older...

kienan was really happy to see his papa home today, and spent some time making funny drum sounds... he loves looking at himself in the camera too. so you'll see him walking towards the camera now and then to try and see what's going on. he's such a cutie!!!
(pardon the formatting... i dunno how to rotate the clip!)

finally, a new post!

ok... i (meaning "mommy") have been reading a few friend's blogs set up specially for their tots, and realised that it's been yonks since i've last posted anything on kienan... even my sis has more stuff about kienan on her facebook profile compared to me!
so.. it's time to get back to work and do some updating on the blog that we set up more than 18mths ago to track kienan's development.. :)

look out for more posts in time to come.. yeah!

playdate with zach!

xiuling was bringing zach over to the playground downstairs and asked if i wanted to bring kienan down so that the two boys could try and "play together". of course i said, "yes!"
i think it's great that kienan has someone to try and learn to play with.. :)
here's a pic of them on the ever-popular yellow bus at the playground.. albeit not that great a photograph cause it's tough to get both boys to look at the camera at the same time!

i also managed to snap a few other pics of kienan on the rocking-thingy at the playground.. check out how much he's perspiring!
