His photo entry. Isn’t he such a happy kid?

I have a lot of friends bugging me to enter Zayden in a baby contest and I’m just not that kind of parent. This seem like a pretty easy contest and I’ve entered him. So it would be greatly appreciated if everyone who sees this can vote and spread the word! (Well, just vote. I don’t think any would spread the word though! *lol*) If he doesn’t win I’m not going to enter him anymore :? (Yeah, once bitten, twice shy.)

Also, thank you everyone for your birthday greetings!

Now, go vote/”like” and spread the word!

ETA: Elisia has kindly created an event to make it easier to spread the word (and, get the correct link!) so it would be awesome if you could help too (by inviting and rallying everyone to vote)

(Please inform me if either links are not working for you.)

Oh, wow. It’s June already?

I’m not sure what this month can bring. After all, I have always quite liked June since I was young. The long holidays must have something to do with it. Or maybe it’s my birthday. Anyway, June is awesome!

Now that Zayden Asher is growing up, I sort of miss him when he was a newborn. All small and snuggly, not struggling to get out of my embrace, not-so-smelly poop (minus the watery parts and staining his clothes half the time), really tiny hands and feet…

It makes me feel like wanting a newborn all over again But that’s definitely not going to happen any time soon! Those who have met me over the past few months would know that Zayden just tires me out and I’m always complaining about not having time to do my stuff. (Not that I’m complaining about him. He’s such a dear.)

Anyway, I saw this on an e-newsletter and I am sooo tempted to get something for him!

I wonder if they have this in my size

(Pause for a bit. I’m very distracted by an old re-run of a local drama serial (The New Adventures of Wisely). Casting great, old stars like Li Nanxing, Zoe Tay (I love her!), Phyllis Quek, Yvonne Lim (I love her, too!) and Hong Kong actors Michael Tao and Patrick Tse. ZOMG! They are actually playing Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” in this scene?! :? )

Anyway, ever since I was pregnant, I have some deep fascination with baby feet. They’re so tiny and cute and very, very smooth. When Zayden was born, his feet was smoother than his skin!

Siiigh. Cuteness overload ♥

(Another distraction. Has anyone seen the new commercial for GATSBY’s facial wash? It’s so funny even Zayden laughed at it. Oh, Adventures of Wisely is back on again. I wish there was English subtitles on these midnight re-runs. I still can’t understand what they’re saying half the time )

I’m hoping for many good moments this month Wishing you a great June and summer/winter!

I feel like I managed to accomplish certain things today. Perhaps it’s because Zayden Asher is recovering and he’s not as cranky as before I managed to do a layout for Scrap that Baby! and two journal pages (have yet to upload those though). I also managed to upload some stuff into my Flickr

(If I didn’t mention, I’m taking an art journal class at the moment and it’s awesome! :D)

Zayden laughed when I opened this photo to edit.

My sister returned this whole stack of DVDs I’d lent her the other day and as they were sitting around the floor (totally not back on the shelf yet), I decided to watch them. Yesteday, it was Toy Story. But he got bored after the opening scene (I actually quoted every line out loud!) Guess what today’s Pixar movie was?

My poor cover…

Just a note: I love getting (relevant) comments everywhere

Over the weekend, Zayden Asher was having a high fever but when we brought him to the doctor’s on Monday night, he couldn’t pinpoint what exactly caused the fever. But when rashes broke out yesterday, my mom said it could be false measles. False measles (roseola) affects kids between 6 to 24 months and can’t be diagnosed until the rashes appear (which does after the fever breaks).

The funny part was that Zayden didn’t seem really sick. Aside from the high temperature on Sunday and Monday, he was still very active and happy. Well, he was crankier than usual and his appetite wasn’t that good but if you didn’t know he was burning up, he look like any other healthy baby :?

Anyway, he’s 8 months old today (it usually slips my mind whenever the clock strikes 12 on the 13th but I’m always reminded because my mom always text me to congratulate on the X number of months I’ve been breastfeeding)

The poor, spotty baby
