Between 9.9-10.1kilos now…. she finally breached the 10 kilo mark!  Yay for Emma!
She will eagerly go to the weighing scale and ask to be weighed.


Not measured.


I just counted her teeth and can confirm that she has her full set of 20 milk teeth now. :)

Developmental Milestones

  • Emma can carry on a good conversation now.  She is finally saying “Please” and “Thank you”, and sometimes even asks us to say “Please Emma”. hahaha
  • She will tell us “I don’t want….” this or that.
  • She can string longer sentences together now. eg. “Snoopy’s not scary anymore, Mommy.  Snoopy’s a cute dog!”
  • Emma is asserting confidence and wants to be all grown-up.  When she sees something she wants to do, she will say, “Let me try!” or “Let Emma try!”
  • Asks questions: “What’s that?” “Where’s Hannah?” “Where’s Daddy?” “Where’s Ethan?”
  • Gives responses: “Hannah’s in school.” “Daddy’s in the office.” “Ethan is in the playroom.”
  • Sometimes mixes up “pee pee” and “poo poo”, so we have to gauge what she means when she says it.

Food and Feeding

Emma loves a good bowl of homecooked soup and even better if it is served with steamed rice.  I’m trying different soup combinations:  Apple with pork ribs soup, ABC soup (Carrot, tomatoes, potatoes, onion), mushroom soup, etc.

She also loves orange juice and Vitagen (orange flavor).  She also loves fresh fruits (watermelon currently her favorite, with kiwi and apple following in a close second).  She doesn’t really fancy ice cream though… funnily enough, she tried Baskin Robbins’ ice cream and she was okay, but when she tried some unidentified ice cream from the restaurant, she had rashes around her lips.

I’m also trying some fresh milk with her, she currently drinks just a little.  No adverse reactions so far.

She is still consuming Izumio and Super Lutein as health supplements for her general wellbeing and also to tackle her eczema issues.  She will know how to ask for her “mio” when she needs it and constantly requests for her “capsules” too.  Maybe what we hear about kids knowing what’s good for them is true after all.


Yesterday evening, while we were out on one of our Christmas shopping trips, I asked Hannah if she was all ready to get her ears pierced.  She had been requesting to get her ears pierced for a couple of months now, but we just could not find the time yet.

I had never made it compulsory for her to pierce her ears.  When she had asked me years before if all girls had to do it, I reassured her that it was entirely up to her.  And I told her it didn’t matter if she did it now, or 10 years later or even not do it at all…

However, she recently told me she wanted to get her ears pierced and since we were at the mall where my friend told me she took her girls to get their ears pierced, we decided to go for it, since Hannah confidently said, “Of course I’m ready Mommy!  Let’s go!”

Some ear-piercing stalls do the piercing for both ears together, but since the lady was solely manning her stall, she did it one ear at a time.

First Hannah was asked to choose a pair of stainless steel earrings to be worn after the piercing.  She chose a pair of earrings with a green emerald-like stone.


Next, the lady piercer marked 2 dots on her ear lobes so that she will know where to place the piercing.  I had to ask her to change the positioning a couple of times…until I was absolutely satisfied.

Before the actual piercing, some numbing spray was applied to the ear lobes, to lessen the pain.  Then the ears were pierced.



After the first piercing, Hannah said, “It’s painful!  Feels like she stapled my ear!!”

But she was ok to go through the second one and I told her it was just going to be a few seconds….

After the procedure, I asked her if she regretted doing it and she said no. :)



She’s very very happy and loves her earrings.  In fact, she has been telling me that she would like to wear my other earrings and that we can share earrings too!  Haha…
