Semalam dah upload entry Ryan's new ride, hari ni kisah Abg Adam plak. *mujur anak 2, kalau 3,4 harus kena buat jadual gilir2 buat blog post.Aduhss!!* Nanti tak adil plak bila besar2 diorang baca kan.Tapi kisah basikal baru Adam ni dah lama, biasalah mommy asyik tangguh, plus alkisah gmbr yg asyik kena delete, dek kerana memory card asyik lupa amik dr lappy, last week kut baru sempat amik gambar Adam berbasikal.
Mr Hubby lah yang bersungguh sangat nak suruh Adam belajar bawak basikal. Nak harapkan basikal kat rumah yg kecik tu, dia malas nak kayuh. Time raya haritu, bila hubby tgk cuzen Adam yg younger than him pun dah pandai bawak basikal, dah risau plak dia takut nanti Adam tak reti bawal basikal. Bukan ape, rumah apartment macam kami, manalah ada space nak pusing2.
Since Mr Hubby so excited nak belikan, siap survey merata, I agreed aje. We found the suitable bicycle for Adam during his 3rd birthday. So kira hadiah harijadi Adam from his papa lah. Dah dapat basikal, rajin lah kami on wekend pergi taman kat Shah Alam tu, kadang pergi Morib bila balik Banting. Dapatlah Adam berkayuh sakan sikit. Kalau tak pun, balik keje hubby bawak Adam pergi playground. Time my parents around, Okki pun kena buli ngan Adam suruh ikut dia main basikal kat taman n parking area.
So far, Adam still using the training wheels. So happy to see he is so excited everytime he got chance to ride his bicycle. *ala masa kita kecik2 dulu pun, asyik kayuh basikal je siang malam kan!!* So, its worth to buy lah, walaupun at the end, makin sempit corridor rumah kami dgn stroller and bicycle park kat situ!
ps: Tu papa's treat. Tengok nanti mommy's treat petang ni, pasti Adam drop jaw habis.hikhikhik!!! *purplicious mood activated!!*
Time Adam dulu, memang tk de walker ni. I was so religiously follow what the expert said!*Read here!!* Further, boleh gilir2 dgn hubby tengokkan Adam and mostly dia duduk dalam cot. Different with Ryan, since he started to turn himself, meniarap tak boleh lama. Pantang lari aje dia menangis nak suruh orang angkat. Mommy tak boleh buat keje hokkey!! Dah lah balik keje, banyaknye benda nk kena settle, bukan dia nak tidur pun, suka sgt duk tengok Abg Adam.End up I have to think on something that can make him rely on himself. At first, I memang survey play platform,tapi dah nasib, kalau kat mothercare sale aritu dah cantik, stock tak tahu bila masuk lagik. Kat spuloh kali I call semua mothercare branches, tkde jgak!!*marah nye,dah buat sale, tapi stock takde,logik ke??!!* Brand lain platform ade, kualiti tak seberapa mane, mahal tak usah nak cakap. Geram betul!! Nak tak nak,terpaksa lah beli walker jgak. Yang best walker ni dia ada slower kat bawak, memang tak boleh speed okey. Skarang ni pun, 10-15 min boleh lah, pastu nak suruh angkat jgak.At least ok lah, kejap2 je duduk, pastu kena exercise ye Ryan!!
Adryan dah nak masuk 8 bulan, baru nk upload cite pasal weaning ke mommynadia ??!!! *org puteh kata better late than never hokeyyy!!! Ahaks*
Yeap Adryan already 7 mos and 2 weeks. Meaning that, my lil apam..opppss bam bam boy has started weaning for 1.5 mos. Overall I can say, Ryan is a good eater. Not choosy and well behaved time makan.=) Seriously, feeding Ryan was super easy. Takde babbling while eating, semua bagi ngap telan..nganga for next. Lambat or mommy lalai sket, karang sudu ditarik sendiri! Risau plak takut overweight karang.
Adryan 1st solid introduction...
* To check whether the baby ready to weaning check here!!!*
Kalau time Adam dulu, bila masuk 6bln, excited nk weaning bagai nak rak. Few weeks before 6mos, harus melawat mothercare atau seangkatan dengannya nk carik pinggan mangkuk sesuai. Happy benor, tapi nak suap makan ape takde plak dipikir time tu. Alih sudah, bagi makan Heinz food from jar tu. Tapi Adam telan aje. Memang sodap pun!!Mommy and papa dia ler yg botak. Sehari 1-2 botol, kalau dah 1 week, kali plak sebulan. *Ate kire ler sendiri, kalau sebotoi dah RM4, rege bila ada discount kat Giant tu!!* Lama jgak Adam on Heinz, smp 8-9 bulan before we started on cereal. Lepas tu mommy kena panah kilat * enlightened* terus buat bubur bekal g nursery smp 18mos - 2yrs!
Different with Adryan I'm not so eager to buy those equipment since spoon percuma Avent pun belambak, pakai aje with VIA cup Avent. I'm more excited on finding good recipes for him. Buying various fruits and veggies, experimenting few recipes from books and internet. InsyaAllah, will try as much to prepare him natural homemade food!!
First stage of solid introduction is more on to introduce the baby with various taste and flavor. In fact at this stage, we need to see if the baby got any reaction or allergy with the new food he ate. The best things to feed them with very small amount around 2-3 spoon, and need to be remembered, at this stage breastmilk is still the main source of food for them.
* You can download the table for solid food introduction chart here!!*
As of now, Ryan eat once or sometimes bila mommy dia rajin dapat ler makan twice. *malas kan mak Ryan neh!!!InsyaAllah starting this week,will prepare utk 2 times feeding!!Go mommy go mommy!!* And he still consumed my tulus mulus milk at 18oz at nursery and banyak-banyak kali waktu malam. * Ya Ampun lah bdak bam bam nihh!!* His 1st month weaning, I prepared more cooked purees of fruits , and slowly started with veggies lepas tu. Kenapa kena masak buah2 and veggies tu, read here!!
So far I have tried many types of my self recipes. Mix and match various type fruits and so far it turned walla u know!!*Sebab I makan skali, kn rs jgakkan!!* I chose fiji apple, strawberries, nectarine/peach, plum, banana, apricot, pears and latest is avocado. *mix with kurma jgak!!*
This combination so far is the best!!!
Plum, peach, strawberries and nectarine.
Blend until u get a fine texture..
and tadaa...ready stocks for nursery!
While for the veggies, I started to intro sweet/Japanese potatoes, carrots, broccoli and future pumpkins and celery. *Nape dah 2 kali pi Giant and tesco tak jumpe pumpkins, marah betuiii ler..dulu selalu beli kat Jusco, senang ade semua!!*
Carrots and sweet potatoes!!
Cube fruits and veggies, ready to be blend every morning..
Preparation for veggies ni little bit tedious, specially for carrots and sweet potatoes, nak kena masak lama. Kalau tak nanti tak lembut. Kena plak pakai blender old scool I tu, mak aiiii pagi2 riuh rendah rumah duk blend makanan Ryan. Sampai panggil hubby sebab, susah benor nak dpt texture yg sesuai. Awal2 dulu I prepared frozen foods earlier and as usual I just steam waktu pagi for nursery. Tapi textures carrot and potatoes tu kurang cantik bila steam. Terpaksalah bgn subuh2 hari duk blend makanan Ryan. Tapi rupanya, tektik I salah. Shud thaw the food first, letak fridge bawah, then rendam air panas baru steam!! Mak aii...tension aje sebelum ni!!!I made stocks normally for 2-3 days feeding *2 times daily feeding this week!!*
Avocado ni, kalau bagi makan macam tu je..Ryan tak nak..
Kena mix with some veggies and fruits too..
So far, I'm still enjoying prepared food for lil Ryan. *As well as Adam jgak, tapi Adam dah beso, tak leceh sgt!!* Will start on cereal and rice soon. *Looking for brown rice cereal, mane boleh dpt ek??Kat organic store ada ke??*Alhamdulillah, rasenye lepas ni keje masak-memasak boleh diringankan sikit. Tak perlu kena masak atas dapur sayur and buah tu, abis khasiat dia nanti.
The day Adam's caregiver passed me those pictures, I was laughed out loud. I was so excited to see Adam in kinddy's outfit. But at the same time, I almost crying. *Tiba-tiba rase sayu sgt* I just cannot admit that Adam is already grown up and will start preschooling soon, walaupun me n Mr Hubby still not decided whether to enroll at different kinddy or not!!Many things need to be considered. ;(
This photo session is actually for the kinddy student's graduations. So the teachers decided to take pictures for those below 4 years too. And kebetulan ada extra outfit, diorang pakaikan Adam and amik picture ramai2. These pictures special uploaded for Omma & Okki and to my readers too..*Sila jgn gelak..sb until now, I keep on smiling everytime I looked at the pictures!!*
*Muka masam ni samada kena paksa amik gmbr, or takut kat photographer tu!!*
Adam keep on telling me his experience during the picture taking...so sweet!!
With his friends..
*Sebelah Adam tu, bdak yg selalu buli Adam...we called him samseng kg dusun, sb selalu gigit Adam!! The cute girl at the first row in the middle is Alisha, anak Pn Fairoze Salwana!! =)*
I was blessed that I’ve been given chance to fully breastfed my eldest son, Adam Mikael with the most perfectly design food on earth, the breast milk. Adam was exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months and continued up until 2 years old and 9 mos.
My successful breastfeeding product!
Being a parent, I believed all the parents would be very demanding specially in choosing foods for our little kids as we know the importance of a healthy balanced diet will provide the kids with all vitamins and nutrients that they need to support growth and development. Fruits and vegetables are from the group which is very critical in our kids’ daily intake as this promoting towards good health and protect from the bad diseases. In fact, fruits and veggies should be the foundation of a healthy diet.

Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, pumpkins, green beans and leafy as well as most types of fruits are all low in calories and high in fiber, vitamins and minerals which is very good for the children’s health and helps to avoid constipations among them. Healthy children’s physically will enhance to the excellent in brain development at early stage of the children growth. Thus, we need to ensure to introduce the best foods for the kids as early as their weaning stage and avoid all the junk foods in their daily routine meals.
Introducing solids is the most enjoyable stage for all mommies when we are given an official green light to feed our little ones. During Adam weaning stage *as well as Adryan*, I chose to feed them with cooked purees or well-mashed fruits and veggies and gradually changed to bubur at 9 - 10 months. I tried as much to ensure he took a balanced diet suitable for him at that time. I was so happy when he enjoyed all the foods I served. *siap tak cukup, sebab mommy catu takut overweight :’(* Every time I cooked bubur especially, I will tried to mix and match various types of fruits and veggies in his diets as well as the other groups of carbo and proteins, and giving chance for him to explore various of taste. *Dah kata kecik lagikan, semua mommy bagi telan aje* I tried my best to avoid processed foods for my kids especially at his early weaning stage, thus I was being busy with routine to cook their meals on weekend. Here are some for my entries during Adam’s weaning stage:
1st weaning food: Fruits purees contain of strawberries, plum, apricot and apple.
Adam is already 3 years old and I’m happy that he still enjoys having healthy foods.*Seriously, Adam tak pandai makan sweets and cekedis pun* I have no problem to give him any types of fruits and shopping for fruits were something enjoyable things to do as he will helps me to choose the fruits he wants. And he still a big fan of banana and strawberries too!*Jangan buat lupa lock fridge tu, licin karang dia sapu* What make me worried now is when he started to refuse some of the veggies specially all the green leafy one. Every time we fed him, he will try to sort out all the unwanted veggies. *Dah siap sembunyi celah2 pun dia boleh find out!!* He just eats whatever he wants and most only his favourites.
Adam helping me to choose the good pears..
Besides his daily food intake, Adam enjoyed fresh and UHT milk more than formula milk. The cost for his monthly fresh & UHT milk are very expensive *weekly shopping milk macam nak bukak kedai runcit woo!!* and what make me more worried he will not getting as much nutrients for his development mentally and physically. Seriously, I was buntu! I have once stood in front of 2 meter racks of formula milks at Speedmart99 looking for the good milk for my son, end up I walked from the shop with empty handed. They were so many choices. I have no idea what should I focus in order to get the best milk for him. Me and Mr Hubby also started to get few samples and bought of small packs for trial, end up with “Mommy, no no.. Adam tak nak this milk”. Pointing to his UHT milk from the fridge. Grrrrrrr!!!!
The searching will soon come to the end. My last visit to the nearest hypermarket has lead me to the rack where I found a new range of formulated milk from Dumex Dugro which contain what I wanted the most and I’m very happy to give a try.

Wonder how Adam will react with this time choice??
Syukur!!Finally Adam accepted formula milk. We still can’t believed that Adam will drink that full glass of milk within a minute.*Time beli pun Mr Hubby still like 50-50 whether Adam nak minum ke tak!!* So mommy gave a try too, just to confirm the different taste of this milk from others. Mmmmm.. No wonder lah..It tastes like the fruity yogurts!!!And Adam is a big fan of yogurts!!
