We went for a session in driving range again, and this time Dhana and Qika joined us. As usual, I chased Noe all over the place while the father is practicing golf. Later I managed to hit 50 yards using a PW for about ten balls in a row while Indi was taking a break. We had chicken porridge and cheese crepes for breakfast, with bottles of Teh Botol.

My Birthday

It's my birthday! don't have to say how old i am, ever since I became older than 24 year old, I started to become anxious about my age.

Of course, Indi was preparing a nice surprise for me: coffee cake at midnight. But too bad, I was wide awake until midnight and I managed to intercept Indi's preparation for the mission. Nevertheless, we were having a really great time.

Noe and Toilet

Something surprising happened to us this morning. Noe walked by himself to the bathroom/toilet and pee on its floor.

(For background info, these past two weeks we let Noe diaperless and barebottomed where possible, in order to study his elimination needs. We got 50% success rate so far of carrying him to the bathroom to encourage him to do it. The other 50% were accidents on the living room floor)

First Birthday

It's Noe's first birthday. We made a small celebration with neighbours and relatives.

This is Noe's birthday cake. Rani had to decorate it because we ordered the cake without allowing time to create custom decoration. So Rani rushed to National Library and borrowed book about cake decoration, and then dashed to Cold Storage to buy materials for royal icing. She made the blue royal icing and lay it on top of the cake, being inexperienced with cake decoration and all. And to complicate matters, the cake that Indi bought was a mango cake with jelly topping, which caused the royal icing to melt. So we had to blow the candle rapidly. Here's the picture (Photos courtesy of Judhi Prasetyo):

First Clap

Just now, Noe deliberately clapped his hands, for the first time.

He has tried to clap his hands for the longest time, but somehow either the hands just clasped to one another, or the hands do not meet.

Worst flu

This week I was down with my worst flu ever since I left Indonesia (2001 that is). I started to have a sore throat on Monday early evening, then I had a sudden onset of a really bad fever later at night. WARNING!!! Don't continue to read this entry if you're easily disgusted because I'm gonna be quite graphic in describing what happened.

Happy Birthday, Andika John!

Andika is one year old already. Time goes by so fast! I recalled that it felt just like yesterday when Natasha and I both realised that we're pregnant. And then the babies were born. And then the first birthdays.Since we really enjoy making music, we would like to share our joy for music with Andika too. We got him a set of drum, maracas, tambourine, and castanets. Andika immediately had fun with the drums. Good, now we can form a baby band.

Noe itu ...

Kalau dilarang, malah dilakukan
Kalau disuruh dan dipaksa, malah tidak dilakukan
Kalau disembunyikan, akan dicari terus

Kalau dibiarkan, akan dilakukan sampai bosan
Kalau diperlihatkan, akan dimainkan sampai bosan

First Tooth

Finally, Noe's tooth starts to grow! At last! Well, he's quite a late teether.. I (Rani) could feel a bony-hard thing on top of his gum. Unfortunately no picture can be taken just yet, because the tooth is not visible by human eye...
