Toddler Games #1 - Catching the Ball!

Hello everyone. What's everyone being up to? Hope you guys were having a great weekend. Well, start from today i'm going to add a new post about Toddler Games twice a week. I'm going to help you and your toddler to have lots of fun while playing and help their development too. So the first games i want to tell you is "Catch the Ball!". The concept is to toss your toddler a ball and she catches it. Seems pretty simple, but actually it took a lot of work for your little one. At first, she may have tried to understanding the game, but her reaction was probably delayed and she missed the ball. After a few practice trial, she’ll likely succeed at take and hugging the ball to her chest as it approaches. Then as she becomes more habitual at seeing the game rules, she'll start to catch the ball with her hands and not her body and start to throwing back the ball to you. Remember, practice makes perfect. You can do it every morning to make your little ones getting more confidence on catching and throwing the ball. Well, It might seems boring to us, but its really fun for building their arm muscle strength and hand-eye coordination. So why don't you start looking for the most cutest ball in toy store and toss it to your little ones? :)

Morning-walk around the house today, she showed me her natural curiosity about the living world. I'm trying to talk about what's happening outdoors each day by notice the sunshine, light raindrops, the sounds of thunder, the awesome sky, the trees, the grass, the rocks and everything around her. For me, as she spend more time outdoors, she will become a better observers of the natural world :)


Hello everyone!
Thanks for all the likes and warm comments on Instagram lately. How is your day?
By the way, i've received lots of question about how did i teach my baby to brush her teeth on her latest brushing-teeth instavideo a few months ago, and i am really sorry that i just had time to answered your question now because of my crazy routines. Well, you might be curious about why brushing teeth is really important for a toddler?

For me, i want to ensure that Naaya's teeth are strong and will resist decay both now and in the future. I want brushing teeth to be a part of her daily routine so she can be more discipline in the future.

Now you guys might wondering how did i teach my baby to brush her teeth?
Hmm, mother happens to be the first teacher of every child. A child will adopts everything and will starts imitating and behaves the same as their mother.  So, i always let my baby get into the bathroom every night to see what am i doing before i go to sleep. Since then she was starting to clean her hands and ask for a toothbrush and i let her hold her own toothbrush. It worked so good, i don't have to deal with any "mouth-closed" drama. When i'm about to brush her teeth i'll say "Woop woop, the brush is coming!" This totally cracks her up and I can brush really well with short burts as I say, "Tikitik, kitik, kitik!!" (Tickling sounds) and then i'll let her have the toothbrush AFTER i'm done so she can do it by herself. But remember not to force your baby, they will do things when they were ready. As soon as they're willing and able, it's a good idea to let your child try to brush her own teeth, even though they probably won't be able to do a good job but its perfectly fine. So mommies, you better get ready to pick some toothbrush for your little one and start teaching them a real good thing in life ;)

Hello guys!
I'm really really sorry for the lack of post these few days, mommy got a real hard time renovating Naaya's baby room into a toddler area. I need to making her (small) 3x3m space into such a lovely area because now she's all grown up, and her toys is getting a lot more and more each and everyday, and she needs a bigger closet for all of her clothes and shoes (YES, her stuff is already compete with MINE! Argh) I also got so many projects to handle these few months, so i hope you guys will keep an eye for any update from us :p Promise, i will post more stuff when i got free-time just to make you guys happy x) See ya!

A mess. She needs a bigger closet for her stuff. A bigger storage for her toys. And more money is needed and it was enough to kill your parents, honey.
