Definitely not a pretty sight. She looks like she has cramps on her face!
It was raining heavily, so we checked out the stuff animals at the shop while waiting for the rain to stop. MX was particularly intrigued by Ah Meng (",)
MX looking curiously at the Probosis monkey - dunno what to make of it. This was the second animal that she saw upon entry to the zoo. The first animal she saw was the parrots (",)
Having a little chat with Ah Meng's bronze statue at the Garden with a View.
The funniest part of this zoo trip:
MX has a thing for giraffes and finally got to see real giraffes. Despite being able to repeat words that we say, she always insist on calling giraffes, 'Wor-wus'. She was minding her own business and happily munching on her biscuit when we approached the giraffes enclosure.
Her jaw dropped and she stopped munching when she saw those giants grazing in the distance. She froze for awhile before she spoke.
When she finally spoke, her voice cracked and she sounded like how I would sound if I saw a dinosaur - 'Wwwoor - wus!'
MX's highlight of the trip: Carousel ride.
She loves kiddy rides, so it was a must for her to get up there.
Check out both her tubby baby fingers pointing at the carousel in front of her.
Fast asleep as we made a little purchase on MX's behalf before heading home.
On days when I can't think of what to entertain the baby with, I'll get her to name things. Sometimes, it could be the pictures that are tagged on the walls at home, or what we come across during our daily walks. When I realised that MX picks up words at the snap of a finger, I went out and got her some flashcards to make it easier to find objects for naming.
MX @ 16 months
I especially love the way she says 'birdt', 'Kow' and 'BAbbit'
MX managed to scale the steps and as she crossed the bridge, she stopped & started to look strange. She rolled her eyes and almost toppled backwards. I thought it was heatstroke and that she was gonna faint!
Well, she was actually concentrating hard as she pooped. Off she goes again after she was done.
MX started walking soon after her birthday in March. A month later, she started climbing the stairs.
MX loves listening to the Cadbury Eyebrow commercial on the telly. She'll stop whatever she's doing and concentrate on the music.
So one night, i looked up the commercial on Youtube and played it outside her room while she was doing her baby-thing in the room. Once again, she dropped everything and remained very still. Soon, she started dancing to the music.
I've since been on a mission to capture her funniest jiggle, wriggle and bounce whenever she hears this song.
