Hmmmm....this might be something different from my normal people bashing or whatnots log.
Im blaming it on the hormones...nothing else to blame. Why not? Im still being controlled by the up and downs of it. And one of the reason of my claiming so was when now and then Im finding myself very preoccupied with my little baby, unlike my previous one...
Well, not wanting to feel 'mom's-guilt' or whatever, it was probably, it was different during the previous birth, where I was busy running business and trying to cope and 'make-beleive' being a 'modern day' mom by bringging  my baby to the office whenever I'm free from any meetings. Another reason for that was my not trusting a maid or baby sitter besides close my family members.

Anyway, since Im a house mom, and got all the time just to entertain my baby and watched her every second, Im experiencing a very new feeling of being a mom to a newborn.

I have the following article sucscribed from a website, and I just feel like sharing it here.
It made me lauged especially reading the  last checklist, and picturing her rounded face and eyes eyeing for our food whenever she sees us eating.

How will I know when my baby's ready?

Your baby will give you clear signs when he's ready to move beyond liquid-only nourishment. Cues to look for include:

•Head control. Your baby needs to be able to keep his head in a steady, upright position.

•Losing the "extrusion reflex." To keep solid food in his mouth and then swallow it, your baby needs to stop using his tongue to push food out of his mouth.

•Sitting well when supported. Even if he's not quite ready for a highchair, your baby needs to be able to sit upright to swallow well.

•Chewing motions. Your baby's mouth and tongue develop in sync with his digestive system. To start solids, he should be able to move food to the back of his mouth and swallow. As he learns to swallow efficiently, you may notice less drooling – though if your baby's teething, you might still see a lot of drool.

•Significant weight gain. Most babies are ready to eat solids when they've doubled their birth weight (or weigh about 15 pounds) and are at least 4 months old.

•Growing appetite. He seems hungry – even with eight to ten feedings of breast milk or formula a day.

•Curiosity about what you're eating. Your baby may begin eyeing your bowl of rice or reaching for a forkful of fettuccine as it travels from your plate to your mouth.

9/11 -- A decade ago

Must be the most memorable and most used numbers.

Time must have cheated on me.
I felt ancient.
I felt I must do something before I realised another decade gone just like that.
It seems too fast.
I felt it was just a couple of years ago that I was seated on my tv room chair in my office watching CNN from morning and continue till I reached home and it goes on for the next week or so.
The conversation during that time was bombing and  WTC and militants.

Well, in order for me to commemorate the D-day, I prefer not touch on anything about the bombings or those who perished including those jihad-crazy people.
I'm doing it on a smaller scale.
On myself.
I want to reflect back on the past ten years ago of my life.
A lot had taken place.
Achievements, happiness, sadness, joy and solemness.

Gosh.....a lot.

I wonder whether the next 10 years, US will still give respect and visit the ground Zero -- I reckon they've got a new name for the area already.

We shall see....

Pity the Pets

PETALING JAYA: About 20 pet owners filed police reports on Tuesday against Petknode Online Petstore accusing it of alleged cheating and breach of trust.

They filed the reports at the Police Headquarters here Tuesday evening.

This comes two days after about 300 cats were rescued after they were allegedly starved in a locked “pet hotel” where their owners had left them to be cared for over the Hari Raya holidays.

A friend involved in the rescue mentioned about the filthy and badly congested house where cats and kittens were put on stacks and being left without attention.
The two guy responsible for the abuse should be kept behind bars for their deed and shouldn't be allowed to operate the pet hotel anymore.
