Happy Birthday, my baby Zayden! :)

Happy Birthday to you, too, Zefeng! :D

This is why Zayden is so cute

Over the past couple of weeks, the poor kid has been bitten by mosquitoes. So much so that he has serveral weird bumps on his skin. One such bump was on his hand.

This morning, his Ah Ma asked him, “Did mosquito bite you last night?”

He pointed to the bump on his hand.

Yes, he knows what a mosquito bite is :lol:

Zayden Asher’s 2-Day Partay!

Last weekend was spent celebrating Zayden Asher’s first birthday :) It was a two-day affair since there were many people we wanted to invite. Saturday was at home with his relatives and friends while Sunday was at my old home with my relatives and friends.

It was pretty easy to entertain people on Saturday since there was a wide screen TV and a home theater system. All we needed to do was pop a DVD in and hey presto!—people are entertained.

Totally into Avatar

Since Guan had to entertain his friends and his parents, their relatives, I just made sure that there are enough chairs, that people have taken their food from the buffet and making sure that everyone has a drink (or two). Inititally, when some relatives and friends came early, Zayden was pretty cheerful and socialized. But as the night went on and more people came, the crowd became a little too overwhelming for him and he clung onto me every now and then.

(While going through my photos, I realized that I am missing photos from my sister’s camera so there are a lot of photos that I can’t add to this post. I guess there will be another post on this event.)

Really yummy cake! :P

Lighting the candle

As the birthday song was sung, he got all happy and clapped along.

A few days prior to this celebration, Guan’s father tried to teach Zayden how to blow out his birthday candle. It wasn’t successful so on that day, we coaxed him to attempt to blow. As we were encouraging him, “Go on, Zayden. Blow the candle. Remember how to blow?” He suddenly stuck out a finger and extinguished the flame! :o

Everyone was so shocked! I quickly checked his finger but it seemed fine. In fact, he looked like he was about to cry with everyone’s outburst :lol:

Yup, he loves cake :)

On Sunday, Guan, Zayden and I went over to my old home at noon to help decorate the house. I have to say I was rather surprised because I did not expect my parents to actually decorate! On my first birthday I remember not having any balloons nor streamers/banners hung up around the house. Grandparents really spoil their grandchildren, eh? ;)

(After the party, my mom insisted that I should take a few photos of the decorations. It wasn’t much. But, still.)

Zayden was actually rather cranky because he didn’t nap. So when most of the guests arrived, he was napping away :?

At the end of the day, Zayden had a lot of presents.

We decided to let him open one :)

“Ooh, I wonder what’s the biggest gift like?” :D

“Thanks for helping me Daddy!”

“It’s a Winnie the Pooh airplane!”

“Awesome!”

Due to the size of the gift, Guan and I initially thought it was a car. But since Guan’s in the airforce, my cousin got him the airplane. Sweet, ain’t it? :)

Did I forget to mention that Zayden started walking? ;)

Looking at cute little girl items from this Etsy store just makes me wish for a girl sooner than I’d like! Though I wouldn’t dress her up in pink or over frilly dresses and such, the images from the store just makes me want to stare and dream :)

The weekend was an exhausting one since there was a double celebration for Zayden Asher’s first birthday :D Here’s a sneak:

Contest Cancelled

ETA: Wow. Apparently there was an ugly drama going on. I don’t want to comment much since this is the internet, after all…

So the voting contest on Facebook got cancelled :( Here’s what the organizers posted:

ANNOUNCEMENT OF EVENT CANCELLATION

Due to continuous reported complaints of spamming and flaming of participants in this event to us and Facebook, we regret to announce that this event will be cancelled with immediate effect. We understand many of you have taken the time to commit to this event and we deeply appreciate your efforts. We wish to let you know that cancelling this event was a difficult decision to make and the final resort we had to take.

We thank all for supporting this event and we hope most of you have made new friends and had a fun time looking at everyone’s photos. This page will still remain as a platform for all to share their baby photos with each other and to befriend more friends.

Thank you once again for supporting us and do continue to tune in to “Precious Babes” currently airing Monday – Friday at 9pm on Channel 8.

Take care :)

I know I should probably be angry with them (like how a lot of parents are at the moment, as they express it freely on the event page, and the organizers keep deleting those complaints. Actually, it’s quite hilarious.) But I don’t know why I find the whole thing rather funny :lol:

I personally feel that the whole thing wasn’t really well organized nor thought through. I mean, they didn’t even state what the prizes were! (And it didn’t occur to me until my friends asked what Zayden Asher would win.) There wasn’t a set of proper guidelines nor rules, thus, the spamming and flaming flooded the comments. (I wouldn’t really say flame but the spamming was just advertising, right? After all, they didn’t state that it wasn’t allowed.)

Anyway, I personally feel like I jinxed it by entering Zayden. It always happens to me :?

Ah well, it’s a nice tickle to a long day :)
