2011.10.15 A Day full of Incidents...

This is Bebe when we left home, his cute face was flawless and got no scratch whatsoever
It was a great day, we hang out with out family friend, and Bebe had a lot of fun too
then...later on he fell on his face on top of the gravel :( he cried so loud and as always, his face turn really red. I can't see any scratch at his face at first (because his face was so red from crying) and after he stop crying, we find out that Bebe got scratches on his nose, forehead and above his lips >,<
but he still looks lovely tho :)
and after we got home, my active Bebe try to climb the rocking chair...he slipped and bumped to the wood arm rest!! His lower lips was bleeding and mommy was freaked out! the bleeding stop soon, and Bebe left with swollen lips...sigh...what a day!
This is the before & after picture...despite all the accident, Bebe is still happy and smiling

2011.10.11 Face Palm

I was uploading Bebe's old pictures all day long, mostly the 0-3 months old pictures, I got so many of makes me miss the little him <3 He was 3,5 months in this picture
I'm going to have my driving test on Thursday, so today my friend come over and take me to drive around the DMV office to practice more. Too bad it turn dark so fast that I couldn't practice longer, also it was raining. It made me nervous. 

Bebe is 16 months now, and he like to imitates whatever I do.
 After I cut his finger nails, he took the nail clipper and try to copy whatever I did earlier
I'll close this post by a hilarious picture of Bebe, he was sleeping with his palm under his cheek earlier,
so he got this hand mark on his cheek as if he got slapped (by his own little hand) really hard! XD

2011.10.10 Columbus Day

Today's is Columbus day and hubby got a day off. It's so great to spend quality time with my family today at home. I was crashed after cooking for so long last night and also it's my time of the month, so I feel exhausted. My braised pork belly that I cooked using slow cooker last night turn out to be so good,
you can find the recipe here
Watching Bebe growing up is truly amazing,
now my 15 months starting to play remote control car!!
He loves affection, hugs & kisses
Bebe is very ticklish, he's so funny...
sometimes I wish that he would stay small & cute for a little bit longer

2011.10.10 Body Shop Tea Tree Line

Product Name: Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner & Tea Tree Blackhead Exfoliating Wash

What it Claim: The Body Shop Tea Tree lines claim to keep the skin clear by helping prevent blemish and blackhead and controlling excess oil. 

I love how this exfoliating wash is different from any other face scrub I used before. It's creamy with little chunk of crushed apricot stones that allows me to move the crushed apricot around and concentrate on some parts of my face that need exfoliation the most. 
After washing my face with this cleanser, my face feels soft & smooth. It doesn't make my skin feel dry and tight, so it's a plus!

The first couple times I used this toner, it stung my skin and it felt hot and my skin turn red. I keep using them for several day after that to see if I can really use it or to return it to the store. 
After a few days, the toner didn't stung my skin anymore. I occasionally still feel the warm (not hot) sensation when using this toner, especially after I use microdermabrasion type of scrub on my skin. 
I have a very oily skin, but sometimes this toner can make my skin feel dry.

Overall Review: While I'm still have problem with blackheads and, I noticed that after using these products for a month, it is a lot easier to clean my blackhead when I use the pore pack. The pore pack now picked a lot more blackhead than before, even if I don't use my special combo product before using the pore pack. 
Now I can just put the pore pack directly after I washed my face and it will do a great job picking my blackhead.
Also, I notice that this month when I'm having my period, I don't have as much hormonal break out as I did last month. I only have 2 small acne this month and I'm quite happy about that.

2011.10.09 4 Hours of Cooking

Today, after went home from Church I start cooking nonstop for 4 hours.
I made pork bone soup, pumpkin pie (first time baking pie...yay!!), mash potato, and braised pork belly.
Hopefully I can post the recipe on my cooking blog by tomorrow :)
Here's my first pumpkin pie, it seems like the recipe was enough to make 2 pie.
I baked the filling leftover on a dish and just ate it with whipped cream...yum!
and this one is the braised pork belly, I pan fried the meat and now it's cooking on the slow cooker for 10 hours so tomorrow I'll wake up to a tender braised pork belly. I also added some hard boiled eggs & mei gan chai (preserved Chinese vegetable) into the pot
btw, this is our picture from today, before we left for Church in the morning <3
and this one is my sweet little guy that like to plays in the kitchen :D

2011.10.08 Pumpkin Patch

Today, we went to the Farm1 at Snohomish, 1 hour from Seattle. 
The place was huge and they have a lot of different activities going on. We were so excited because it was our first time went to the pumpkin patch / real farm. 
Bebe got to sitting on a real tractor and he was so happy and was play there for a while :D

the thing that excite Bebe the most was the farm animals. They have bunnies & baby bunnies, donkey, ducks, pigs, chicken, lambs and some cows

There was also duck race & the pig show. 
The duck race was so hilarious, the ducks were swimming super fast!!

while waiting for the pig show

we were waiting for 20 minutes, because the seat was limited. We sat in the first row...the show itself was cute, it was the story of 4 little pigs (instead of 3 little pigs) and the bad guy wasn't a big bad wolf, but Uncle George (a big fat pig). The show only last for 5 minutes!

After the pig show, we went for the hay ride to the corn maze. It was $6 per person, and it was also the only ticket we purchased. We ended up just stay in the truck and didn't went to the corn maze because we didn't bring stroller, the corn maze is huge and Bebe is really heavy...and he was sleepy too :)
Last but not least, we went to the pumpkin patch to get some pumpkin. It was really exciting because it was my very first time went to the pumpkin patch, and it remind me of Cinderella story book I used to read when I was little. We ended up bringing 2 pumpkin home, they were $2 each. I'm planning to make pumpkin pie with one and pumpkin soup with the other.
Bebe was so funny, he didn't understand that we were going to picked some pumpkin, so he didn't really care about the orange pumpkin. On the other hand, he was so into the green pumpkin, maybe he though that it was his favorite fruit, watermelon! XD

it was a great family outing, the weather was perfect too! I can't wait for taking Bebe for his 1st trick or treat this year :))

2011.10.07 Bebe's First Skinny Jeans & Growing Pains

Bebe surprise me everyday with his new trick. 
This morning, he took out the word card box from under the bed and bring it to my bed,
it was quite heavy for his size!! and after he moved the box, somehow his right arm was out of his
and this sweet little boy still loves to hold me before he went to sleep...
I don't know how much longer would he wants to hold me like this,
but I'll enjoy it for now :)
Today I'm so happy because Bebe's clothes came a week early from the scheduled delivery,
I order him some vest and his very first skinny jeans.
I think skinny jeans is great for rainy weather like now, since it's tighter on the bottom,
the bottom of the pants won't touch the ground and get wet / muddy.
my big boy in his skinny jeans
Today we went to the DMV office to schedule driving test for me next week. The lady that passed on the waiting number always give everyone nasty look...I wonder why -_____-
Anyway, I'm very excited to take my driving test next week, so I would finally got a driver license!!
After making the appointment, we went to eat Pho for dinner.
Bebe enjoying pho... XD
After we got home, I dyed my hair before hubby had to go to his basketball practice.
This time, I'm using 2 bottle of hair color to make sure I have enough product to saturated my hair. 
I haven't dyed my hair with this much product before, the washing hair part was scary, all my bath tub turn dark the water washed it away. 
This is the first time I'm trying this brand, it's quite moisturizing and my hair feel so smooth afterward.
I'll take more picture tomorrow :)
Talking about basketball, last week hubby told me this funny / ironic story. There was this old guy that play basketball with him, and the old guy asked hubby why he haven't show up at bball for a long time.
 Hubby said that he was busy taking care of the baby. 
Then the old guy said "don't spend to much time with your baby! they won't remember it anyway!" He said that he used to carry his son on top his shoulder and walk the son around, now the son is grow up and work as a dentist. The son doesn't remember anything about it and also doesn't want to hang out with the father anymore.

In a way, this story is funny how the old guy became so bitter like that, but it's also ironic at the same time that as parent, we try to cherish every single second of our baby's development. We want to pamper and hug them as long as we can, knowing that they won't remember any single thing we did to them when they were baby. I know for sure that my baby won't remember that I always kiss him everyday, that I say that I love him's sad...but I just want to enjoy all the moment. I want to kiss his chubby cheek everyday, and hug him until he fall asleep.
One day, when he grow up, I'll show him this blog to show him all his pictures since the day he was born, all  his funny stories when he was a little baby, all the precious moments we had together. I hope time won't flies too fast...just a wishful thinking...
