Lucas Goes Botak

Lucas was born with heaps of hair (compared to Xavier which had close to none). Over the four months his hair grew to a very untidy state. I often joked that he looked abit like Chairman Mao.

And so, we decided to shave him botak (bald) so that his hair would be even when it grew again. We went to Junior League and he was very well behaved surprisingly, no crying no fussing.

And he became an instant auntie magnet with his cute level maxed out.

Even Xavier couldn't help but love Lucas even more.

I usually recommend parents to bring their kids to Junior League to have their hair cut at least for the first time. Yes its expensive but the staff there are very friendly and experience and the TV playing Barney or Thomas The Train often distracts the kids from the taunting hair-cutting experience. Then when they become comfortable with hair cuts, you are switch them to the cheaper barbers.

Lucas the Superbaby

I saw this swimming costume for babies at one of those pushcart stalls and couldn't resist buying it for Lucas.
It look so cute, even comes with a cape and a swimming cap. No red underwear outside though.

Lucas must be wondering what's all this fuss about with the suit. Xavier tried to guess what superhero Lucas is dressed as.

"Don't lean over, I'm falling off!"

So what does Lucas think of the superboy suit I got him?

Xavier and Lucas

So far Xavier have been a very good brother I must say. He don't exhibit jealousy in a violent manner and we feel he do love and care for Lucas.

This evening, we asked Xavier if he wanted to carry and hug Lucas and he became very excited. Time to take our my camera.

You can see how exited he is in the video.

Lucas Flips!

Lucas can now flip from his back to his tummy via his left very well. Way to go boy!

Looks like we gonna be very busy now as we can't leave him alone at a spot and assume he is still at the same spot the next minute. He has been trying to flip at every chance, even as you are giving him a bath on his back or when you are trying to change his diaper. Seems like the fun has just began.

The Chairman Legacy

If you are a parent of a young child and you haven't heard of Bumbo chair, you are missing a great invention. This is a chair made for babies. As long as the baby can support his own head, the chair can help the baby sit up. It comes in handy especially when you want to play with your child while he is in a sitting position or when you want him seated while she wean semi-solid food.

But it doesn't come cheap and in the case of Xavier and now Lucas, they do not get alot of mileage from it as they are big-boned by nature and tend to outgrow the chair fairly fast. The chair quickly becomes too tight for them at their thunder thighs area.

So what we do it we borrow from friends who own one. The other tip is to get second hand as these chairs are fairly durable and lasting and easy to maintain. So the condition of 2nd hand Bumbo are fairly ok. We manage to borrow one from Lilian's friend Christy for Lucas to sit.

He seems fairly comfortable in it but it wasn't long before he started to make noise as he prefer one of us to carry him. And to be frank, I'm getting aching lower back from prolong period of carrying Lucas. I posted a similar photo on Facebook and commented that we have a new chairman in the house. But Johnson replied that nobody can replace The Chairman. He nickname Xavier The Chairman as he has the big boss look.

Do you agree with Johnson?
