Russell at 18 months boogeying to Hi 5 and his little brush.

It is hilarious to watch as he wiggles his tush vigorously and his accompanying hand actions.

Cord Blood and Stem Cell Therapy

I was just reading about this kid Shai who went through so much as an infant suffering from cancer and what the mother went through to get her the best treatment. There is a post also from the bone marrow donor for the daughter.

She has set up a site now that talks about cord blood banking and reviews.

It is encouraging to see the advances in stem cell therapy and I am firm believer in cord blood banking and its future applications.

More news and resources on what is umbilical cord blood banking

Video of Russell's First Swim at 5.5 months

Russell's first swim! It was taken in late May 2005 when he was about 5.5 months old. Actually this was his second time in the pool. First time, he peed 3 times on me and wasn't sure of himself. Now on his second visit, he is pretty comfortable and already enjoying the water.
We only bought him the waterproof underwear and put a T Shirt on him. He seems pretty happy to be in the water and quite naturally does the breastroke kick (frog kick).
He loves the fountain in the pool and keeps wanting to get near it. Swallowed a few gulps of water but quickly learned to spit out after a few times in the pool.

Video of Russell Crawling at 7 months

Here we go... after months of doing the stationary rocking on all fours, Russell is now in motion! This was taken in July 2005

We have been told it is important to have the baby learn to crawl and use their hands and feet. The act of crawling actually helps them learn coordination and heightens their experience of touching and feeling. We had a mother who shared one of her kids skipped crawling and went to walking and she believes that it actually impacted the kid's learning in his early years esp in the area of motor skills. Just some trivia.

The One book you must read

We have scoured the bookshops and online for guide on raising baby and asked friends. The one book that consistently comes up is this
What to Expect When You Are Expecting. They have now an online version too
Just click on the "What to Expect When You Are Expecting" graphic at the bottom of this page to check it out.
It is well worth the investment.

We bought the new version too on What to Expect In the First Year and going to buy the next one in the series.
This has been Lina's bible and now they have it online , it's is also more personalized.
