Prams Provided At Changi Airport

I mentioned before in one of my blog posts that Changi Airport is a child friendly place. The restaurants are spacious, there are plenty of nursing rooms. Great for outing with a baby.

Today my wife discovered another plus point. The airport actually provides prams for toddlers.

Just ask for it at the information counter. A round of applause for Changi Airport.

Teaching Yining Simple Tasks

Yining learnt something new a couple of days back. She picked up a cereal snack and stuck it into her mouth. This might seem a simple task, but for a toddler, she simply didn't have that fine control to pinch the small bit of snack with 2 fingers. This very simple action took her more than 2 weeks to master. And even so, she's still not very nimble with her fingers, on and off she will still miss the snack or have trouble putting the snack into her mouth.

The cereal snack from Gerber.

After trying to teach Yining certain simple actions and task, I realize how difficult it is to teach a toddler even the simplest things like feeding herself. Patience is the key.

Yining's Getting Ready For X'Mas

Yining's getting ready for her first X'Mas party on X'Mas eve! This is Yining's first X'Mas and she has already received a few gifts well ahead of X'Mas. It's so nice to be a kid. :)

Early in the morning, barely 7am. I was checking something and she took over. :)
I need a new Macbook Pro. :P

Morning Walk With Yining

Not sure if it's pure coincidence, every time I mention anything about bringing Yining to the beach, it's bound to rain heavily.

Yesterday was a lucky day. It was bright and sunny. Mummy and me quickly packed our stuff and headed to East Coast Park.

It was Yining's first time seeing the beach, the sea and touching sand. She was apprehensive when she set foot on the sand. I wished I captured her reaction when she saw the wave rushing towards her feet. Just too bad I was carrying her and Mummy didn't anticipate her reactions so we didn't get the camera ready.

As usual after the initial apprehension, Yining quickly warmed up and was happily getting her feet wet. We let her play for a short while and quickly got her into the shade because the sun was getting stronger.

It was a short trip to the beach but the little girl was already tired. Partly because her nap time is approaching. It was a great experience for Yining. She definitely liked it so we will be making our way to the beach more often to let her experience nature.
