Happy 4th Month Birthday, Jordy!


D talks about lack of irony in Singapore. Well, the irony of posing in front of the Ben & Jerry's Chunk Fest is not lost on me here. Yet another rare mother and baby shot. The festival sucked by the way, but the photo opp was great.

Four months on, it's amazing how Jordy has changed our lives:

1. Going out got a lot heavier - more accessories to tote along, a heavier bag, and of course, his lordship himself, all 8+kg worth!

2. Christmas just got better - it's ten times more excitement now that we have our little friend to share it with! I mean, this kid has never met Santa yet, or even tried a gingerbread man! What delights await him?

3. We've both gotten err, broader. Jordy's not the only one who has gained in girth. Sigh... I'm giving myself a year to return to pre-Jordy size! D's getting back to his regular running routine!

4. The ordinary just got extraordinary: believe the hype. And forgive your parent friends if they can't stop gushing or dwelling on what their children do. I used to sit squarely on the other side of this fence, rolling my eyes and yawning internally if someone I knew droned on about the wonders of their child. But now, it's karma back to bite me in the bum! In a big way! The thing is, it feels like a privilege to be able to witness this gradual awakening to consciousness that Jordy is experiencing, and to see the sort of human being he will become. And having taken a year out to care for him, though exhausting at times, is rewarding almost all the time. So I'm not apologising that this blog has turned into a bit of a Jordy shrine, but your kid is only a baby once, and this supernova phase of learning and discovery needs to be documented!

5. D and I are now PARENTS! We still look at each other in wonderment and wonder how we ever got here. Oh and then of course we look at Jordy and wonder how come we waited so long!

Isn't it an amazing time, watching these little bubs grow into little people! No less amazing the third time around, Lily is now sitting and I'm sure she's saying "Mum";)And then there's the big sisters who are so excited about Christmas they quiver when talking about it! Best wishes for the festive season and your first Christmas as a family of three. Sarah and family.

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to type of just dish out in days of yore staring at it as a formality of catharsis. In a route, it helps me with meditation, to mitigate stress and decent assume in the air nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in preference to of dolls and cars I've always collected more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, dulcet boxes etc. So I was most pleased when I found the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Spry Manifest Laser Crown Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com protection the Toys section. It's like a musical thump, a spinning better, and a radiance verify all rolled into one. Which is spectacular amusement! The gyroscope will whirl representing about a minute. The laser light pretension with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a pretty unique toy that my friends get also been most amused with.

My dogs are also pretty outr?nearly the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They evermore occupy oneself with the gyroscope as it spins, although at first they kept barking at the laser insight show, and also because it produces music. But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but due watch over following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused alongside it. Occasionally it's good to possess diverting toys around the house so that you can desert the toy on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you go get up foodstuffs or get changed. The gyroscope is a particular such trinket with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a intent plot on it, and produces a gegenschein indicate with red, blue, and unskilled colours. Nick a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser luminosity show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that enormous but good plenty to entertain any supplementary customer to the house. The gyroscope is red and jet-black, making it look extraordinarily cold, and somewhat masculine with that dragon imprint.

The music flare plain gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also used this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy terror of decorating the pension latitude with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as well so that the laser torchlight clarify produces a fresh effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the sunrise effects created a sort of dreamt-up atmosphere. She loved it, past the custom, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my default shopping locality suitable all gifts and ideas in compensation fancied occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser lamp playing gyroscope can perhaps be a superb Christmas favour seeking the toddler or even the favoured! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a gracious totalling to the ordinary Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it just about the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests succeed in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my business yet again!
