Good Grampie

Grampie was down at the store to visit shortly after 6pm this evening after making a big delivery to Needs (grocery store), luckily we were still in the store.. we usually leave early.. when jenn comes in early.. but it was busy today .. because it was our store’s 5th Anniversary Sale. Anyhow.. grampie gave chloe $40 towards her walk n’ ride toy. And I made Uncle Richie give us another $6 .. from his bingo winnings .. hahaha!!! Hurray .. chloe is gonna have her toy soon.. perhaps tomorrow… because Chloe was very cranky at the store today.. and it was very busy.. we only left for home at 8pm.. just in time to put Chloe down to bed. I hope to get one that is cheaper than $45.00 .. but i may have to wait a long time.. in order for us to get it at Toy R’ Us.. for a $19.99 ones. Well.. we’ll see.. since we are going to Halifax at the end of August .. and in September for Chloe’s godfather’s wedding in PEI. That reminds me to check if PEI has a Toy R’ Us. Thanks Grampie..!!! Thanks Uncle Richie..!!! for your contribution..!!

Can’t sleep without YOU..??

I went to bed at about 12.30am.. Chloe went to sleep at about 9pm.. but really only got to sleep good after midnite.. she did stirred quite abit before then. Had to pick her up a few times.. and my spouse came to bed at around 2.30am – 3am.. ??? I tried the hardest to sleep.. but never got any shut eye till my spouse came up to bed… !! Suxs!!! Big time..!! And i really cannot comprehend it..??? I never used to have this problem.. before we were together.. I’ve always been able to sleep on my own… so why this now..???!!!?? And I get really mad with myself.. because I know i have to wake up with Chloe at watever time .. she gets up.. and today.. it was at 6.45am.. and usually chloe doesn’t wanna go back to bed immediately.. after her milk..and i end up bringing her downstairs.. change her diapers.. and wait abit more.. till she wants to sleep.. and give her more milk.. and rock her to sleep.. and by that time.. i am wide awake..! SUXS..!! and am hungry.. so i make my breakfast.. clean chloe’s toys… do watever dishes .. or put them away.. or do payroll like this morning.. and remittance. and schedule for the store… and there goes another hour and 30mins.. ok.. i’m gonna try going to bed.. and hopefully chloe doesn’t get up yet.. otherwise.. i will not be able to sleep some more.. plus gotta be at the store by latest 12noon today.. because it’s a friday.. and need to go to Vanguard to do some advertising.. for our new price on game rental. SUXS!!!! @#$%%^^$$%

8 Months Old

My little Chloe will be 8mths old today. For those who wants to see her in picture.. you can visit Chloe’s webpage 8 months .
Chloe has really grown alot.. and i tell you it’s alot.. not only in weight and height.. but also in intelligence.. and mobility.. and physically. From a tiny baby.. who couldn’t even turn herself over or hold her head up.. 8mths is incredible.. !!
She not only makes all sorts of sound… and faces.. and she smiles when you smile at her.. or she does her little shy action.. when she meets someone new.. or she screams when you take away her toys. From a tiny baby.. who only drinks milk.. she eats all sorts of food now.. from cereal.. to cheese and broccoli. From 4 oz of milk per feeding to 6 oz now. From neither being able to sit up on her own.. to crawling.. and standing up .. with the help of anything she can get ahold of to support her.
Thank you, God .. for giving Chloe to us. Thank you so much for giving us so much joy in Chloe. I cannot imagine living one day without her.

Whose baby is she..??

Coming home from Zellers tonite.. my spouse and I were arguing about whose baby is Chloe… kekeke!! I feel that Chloe is more my baby .. because i carried her for 10months… and 2 more weeks.. because she was overdue.. and had a major op.. because of having her.. so she has to be my baby..!! My spouse argued that.. Chloe is his baby.. because.. without his super sperm… i wouldn’t have a baby.. lol! Because of my large fibroid.. my gynae back home told my spouse.. that i may not be able to get pregnant.. that’s is where the super sperm derived..hahah!! Well.. I see it this way.. Chloe is definitely more my baby than my spouse.. but she gets all her crankiness from my spouse.. and my busybodiness from me.. hahahha!!! But since she is 90% of the time.. a happy . and giggly baby.. so i think she is more like me.. than more spouse.. because my spouse rarely smiles.. nor chat .. and my Chloe is definitely a chatterbox.. and a marco polo.. my little explorer. So it’s settled …. she is MY baby..!!

Mosquitoes and Bugs Suxs!@#$%^&@#&*%$$##

I swear I’ve been bitten everywhere possible on my body by some damn mosquitoes or bugs..!!! This year .. it has been particularly bad.. they bite me everywhere.. even my toes.. which is covered all the time by a pair of socks. It’s driving me nuts.. the itch.. and the ugly bites.. from scratching it..!! And now it’s biting my baby chloe too.. just yesterday..!!!! Gonna kill those buggers somehow..!!!! Bugs and Mosquitoes SUXS ..!! BIG TIME..!!!! Only reason why i like winter is because no more Bugs and Mosquitoes.

Overwhelming Love

When I look at my daughter, Chloe when she is sleeping.. i am overcome by this overwhelming feeling of unlimited and unconditional love for her. The feeling is so good.. that i sometimes feel like crying.. and thank God everyday for this precious life .. and the unlimited joy this life has brought along with her. My baby is such a good girl.. and whenever she giggle.. or laugh aloud.. she is so cute.. and she makes the funniest face ever. I just wanna protect my baby forever.. and give her the best I can and teach her well and be there for her always.
Thank you, God for my baby, Chloe.

BBQ at Hectanooga 2004

Well.. day turned out to be raining.. suxs..!!! The turn out was great.. didn’t expect so many relatives. Some who are customers at the store and we didn’t even know that… hahah!! so no need to be nice to them anymore when they come into the store since they are family .. hahah!!! Chloe did pretty well.. and didn’t cry very much.. but she wouldn’t take her nap.. so we had to come home earlier than we planned.. and no fireworks as the weather was really gloomy. Almost everyone we know were at Snare Lake Lodge .. and the food was aplently and great.. i had quite a few things to eat. Unfortunately.. we didn’t have the wine we bought for the BBQ.. Chloe was beginning to get real fussy .. in the end.. so we had to leave. She slept on the way home. As usual.. Lynn and Helena were great hosts. Fernand must have lost some weight.. and so has Bobby. The kids are all grown up.. jeezeee.. i wouldn’t recognise any of them.. if they were at the mall. Bailey.. Megan .. Jake.. Thomas.. just to name a few.. boy have they grown. Too bad this year Brian didn’t come home. Would have made Helena really happy to see him visit too I am sure. Some old folks we didn’t recognise at all. Richard was at the lodge too.. i was surprised to see him. When chloe came home, she was in a good mood.. and she learnt how to put her hand over her mouth.. when she is making noises.. the way her da-da taught her this afternoon at the lodge. Everyone said Chloe was real cute!! But of course .. she is my daughter.

Not much of a summer and not looking forward to winter

We didn’t have much of a summer this year.. and it’s gonna be over too soon.. 🙁
I was telling my spouse.. about wat a long winter we had this year.. and when summer finally came.. we still didn’t have the best weather.. it was either still too cold.. or raining.. or humid or too muggy.. or now.. too hot.. for comfort..!! And no air-con at home.. !!! i hope next summer will be better because Chloe would be walking then.. and she would wanna do lots of things outside. I hope she likes her stroller better next year. And once again today.. the sky looks gloomy.. 🙁
Well.. i guess our yearly summer BBQ at Hectanooga.. is not gonna go well today.. and I thought we are gonna be able to fire up some fireworks tonite.. 🙁
Oh well.. i’m keeping my fingers cross .. for the fireworks.. bbq.. and mosquitoes.. ( i attract them.. like bees to honey.. I’ve had so many this year.. it’s unbelieveable..!! )

Supermarket Obsession

I swear I go to the supermarket everyday.. and it almost seems like we spent .. $ 50 – $100 everyday on buying something….. we’ve got so much food.. and yet sometimes.. i tell my spouse.. that i’ve got nothing to eat..!!! I must be crazy..!! I wow not to go to the supermarket for at least a week.. starting from today.. i am gonna eat everything and anything I can find in my house.. in my fridge and freezer.. by the way.. i have another freezer.. besides the one in the fridge..!! Full of stuff in it..!!! Ok .. Tweety.. no more shopping for food .. for a week now..!!!!! Plus .. we eat out at least once a day.. whether it’s KFC .. or Mac’s .. not Mac’s recently though.. once upon a time.. i used to have Mac’s everyday. At one point .. my spouse told me.. that we spent alot on food.. and i was pretty upset.. because I need to eat right..???!!??? And so does Chloe.. ! But my spouse is good with just hotdog .. while I must have something elaborate.. like my chinese food.. and they don’t come cheaply.. 🙁 But i so crave for my chinese food though.. so i don’t know wat i can do. My poor spouse .. didn’t say another word .. about food.. because i was pretty obsessed for a few days. Anyhow.. i am gonna try .. not go to the supermarket for a week.. and finish up any food i can get ahold of from home.. for a week.. that should give my spouse some relieve.. hah!!

A Real Trooper

Chloe was a real trooper today.. we had to be in the store as early as 12noon because we don’t have enough staffing. And Chloe was very well behaved the whole day.. and ate and slept as scheduled.. although she didn’t eat her solids too much. I put her in her stroller to go get some lunch.. but she didn’t like it alot.. and even protested abit.. but once i started moving the stroller .. she didn’t mind it so much.. 🙂 We count ourselves really lucky.. that Chloe naps half and hour every 3 hrs.. and goes to bed.. at around 9 – 9.30pm.. if her schedule ain’t disturb. Like yesterday … we came home late from the store.. and she took a nap .. while we were driving home.. so that upsetted her schedule..and she didn’t go down to sleep till amost midnite last nite.. and got up at 5am.. and another time at 9am.. usually she sleeps till 10am… thus giving us more sleep.. that we needed .. and was fussy in the morning for her da-da. But towards later in the morning.. she was alright. And her lower teeth are sticking out abit more today. Can’t wait to see them fully out.

Ex-babysitter

Chloe’s ex-babysitter came to visit at the store yesterday.. and Chloe just took to her immediately.. !!! Baffled i am .. because Chloe hasn’t seen her for almost 3 weeks now..!!! I’m happy for Chloe that she can remember her of course.. because I don’t want Chloe to forget her either.. and when Chloe grow older.. i will certainly let Chloe know that she helped babysat her .. when she was an infant. When i told Mr C that she was in and chloe took to her immediately .. Mr C said.. she had her horns filed and hidden well.. hahah!! it was funny..!! Now that made me wonder once again.. but like i said.. i can’t take any chances with my daughter.. and i don’t wanna be one of those mom.. that regrets in the end.. and say.. why didn’t i do this.. or that.. because with Chloe i cannot afford any kinda mistake.. she is too precious .. to me. So yes.. i still stick by my decision.. that looking after Chloe on my own is still the best.

Crying baby

Chloe’s godma came all the way from Toronto to visit .. and as soon as Chloe heard her voice from the kitchen.. she started bawling..???!!!!??? This is so strange.. !! my baby is afraid of new faces.. and refuses to be carried by anyone except Chris and I.. and occassionally .. Jenn our store manager…!! I hope see grows out of it soon.. because even with her grammie.. she does the same.. and i think grammie is heartbroken.. 🙁 Afterall.. grammie spent a good 2 – 3 months with her.. when she was born.
Today was the hottest and most humid day we’ve had so far in Yarmouth, Chloe refuses to nap.. so we had to bring her to the store.. where it was much cooler compared to home.. and when she woke up .. she refuses to let Jenn our store manager carry her.. even for abit.. while i go get her milk… she hung on to me so tightly.. and wouldn’t look at Jenn.. poor Jenn.
