Hello April, Goodbye March!

It's April already and Isaac is nearing the 6-month mark! Yay!!! I've always said I don't mind pregnancy and labour but the first 6 months of sleepless nights and lots of crying drives me nuts!
Isaac turned 5 months old in March hitting the 8kg mark in weight - a whole kg more than his brother. This is my meatiest baby. Still not super chubby compared to some babies I know.

 Weight gain was much less last month because he has been very busy and active. Only 5 months and he's up on all 4s trying to crawl.
I'm quite happy to say goodbye to March. It was a super hot and smelly hazy month.

There was one Friday when it was so bad and because I didn't want to bring the babies out when I had to go fetch the older 2, I let them skip school.

Craft for March was felt donuts. Next up I'm thinking of a felt pizza.
I've often told my husband that I need to make something tangible to feel accomplished. Cooking and cleaning just doesn't cut it because all you see thereafter is poo and pee.
We did a photoshoot during the school holidays with stories.my and I'm still waiting for the pictures. It was by far the most stressful and chaotic photoshoot ever. Two adults and 4 kids! Isabel kept wanting to run away and Isaac wasn't too smiley while busy checking out the new surroundings.

In the kitchen...I still don't like cooking but it's something I have to do. Joseph loves chicken/fish nuggets but I refuse to buy those frozen ready-to-cook ones so I have to make my own breaded chicken/fish cutlets. With some help from google and Kentucky flour, he gave me 2 thumbs up! I so hate frying though....so it's limited to once a fortnight.
Other times, it's simple one-pot meals to minimise washing and ensure he eats his veges.

Plus I'm always on the look out for good groupon and livingsocial deals for those times when I'm just too lazy to cook.
Now that it's April....I'm looking forward to Joseph's and Ah Mah's birthday and a friend's beach wedding when Joy will be one of the flower girls.


  1. Isaac so cute... good weight! i like his round botak head..
    My Isabel is 7.57kg at 5 months old.... and she's also up on all fours learning how to crawl at 5 months! so fast our babies..
