Rico the Builder October 2, 2008

Filed under: Baby — xxtlhxx @ 8:53 pm

Rico’s obsessed with Bob the Builder nowadays and hence, this birthday cake.  We ordered a blackforest cake from Pine Gardens and asked them decorate just the base.   Green for the hills, blue for the sky and white clouds.  They did a pretty good job for it.   I then added the Bob, Wendy, Scoop, Muck and Roley and the banners.  The soil is actually Oreo’s cookies.  The banners are made with MS PowerPoint.  And of course, the birthday boy was more excited about the toys than the cake 🙂

This other cake was Rico’s first birthday cake. The cake is steamed chocolate cake and the frosting is cream cheese.  The cupcakes are also steam chocolate cake. The lego astronaut was borrowed from Joshua.

Quilt August 15, 2007

When I first told my boss AN, that I was pregnant, she was so excited for me and shedsc_2732-cropped.jpg almost in the next breath, promised to make a quilt for the baby. How often is that …that you get your boss to make a quilt for your baby! Guess I am one of those rare lucky one.

More than a year later, boss presented me with this lovely quilt. If you see it yourself, you will not believe that it’s homemade! I can’t even imagine how it’s done nor how she has the patience and I’d say, talent to make a quilt like that. Rico loves it, we all love it.

Thanks, boss for this very lovely quilt.

Rico’s running a temperature today after his prenevar immunisation jab yesterday.  Poor boy, but thankfully, his appetite has not really been affected.  His yaya (nanny) cooked his porridge today and for the first time added a small piece of broccoli, besides the usual meat, carrot and a small piece of

sweet potato. He seems to enjoy it. I hope he grows up to be a healthy eater.

The porridge is actually yummy.
