What is this?

That is Missy's first sentence at 16mo!!! Wheeeeeeeeeeee.. Happy that she is growing well. She will also take our hands and pull to whatever she couldn't do such as opening the cabinet for her. Mmm..somehow the sentence sounds so wrong as if our hands are detachable. Haha, no. Missy knows how to call for our help. She will guide us to whatever help she needs from us.

She has been asking us "watsdissssssss, wastsdis" and point to the object. We couldn't believe it at first but somehow figure that our Missy has really grown. She is learning to communicate and talk. But then, she still refuse to call me "mommy". Hmmph. Still, I love her to bits.

Muaksss, darling Missy.

Glad when she sleeps..

It is so hard to get her to sleep even at 16mo. Yes, Missy still can't settle herself to sleep on her own. We are at her side at all times we want her to sleep and when she awakes. She will cry if she doesn't see any of us next to her. Only once she occupied herself to ipad when she woke up but it only works once.
Poses for my missy's memory.. we are not exaggerating when we say that her legs could be on our face, her head butting our underarm, chest, head... wherever, turning 360 degree all over the four corners of the bed! Well Missy, we still love to cuddle you just as much as you do.

If we are at our position, her legs would be on hubby's chest
and head will be butting me

Or, rolled close to us.. The pillow is where I sleep
Human bolster. Nothing beats the warmth..

and heartbeat!
Can you see what she's hugging?
it's my leg!

Conked out hugging the pillow

My missy! Hugs
Was feeding her some snacks cos we missed her feeding time..
Only to noticed she is falling asleep!

Super HOT!

Have you heard of old wives' myth of bathing your newborn with stout to rid off the heatiness from the body? Lil' missy is born with slightly sensitive and dry skin. So, it is easy for her to have red patches on her especially on the hot weather. And now, with Chinese New Year around the corner, the weather is exceptionally hot! Why, oh why?

Pictures taken on my HOT missy!

Almost undress herself..

Can you see the pool of sweat next to her?
Yes, she sweats that much almost every night!

Upclose of her.. so that missy will know next time,
why mommy insists on short hair for her.. hehe
We bought half a watermelon to quench our thirst and to cool our body a little. For 2 adults, that's a lot! Not sure if this works, but I was told to use watermelon rind to bathe her. To me, it is like putting cucumber on our face like we did for facial. I thought, why not? Let's go natural! Just make sure to remove the flesh entirely or else, ants may be attracted to it! So, did it work? I don't know but lil' missy sure smells nice.

Not so clean watermelon rind for missy's 'spa'.
Read here for more old wives' tales. It's interesting. And no, I didn't bathe lil' missy with stout when she was an infant. Bitter gourd vine, yes. That I must say works.
