He had a few attempts at it but was not able to pedal hard enough to move the tricycle forward. He probably needs a few more training sessions to get the hang of it.
Meanwhile, Leanne was enjoying the scenery and the breeze in the garden for about an hour, while Lleyton gor-gor continued to "work out" in the fitness corner.
Look at how comfortable she is in her car seat and rocking high-chair.

Here's the list:
2) Sesame oil
3) Soy Sauce
11) Fresh milk
12) Bread and cereals
Noticed that most of these ingredients are mainly to accomodate Lleyton's diet. Recently, he prefers to having rice with soup rather than his usual porridge. Hope the family can find some time on Sunday to make a trip out to get all the groceries to last for the next whole week.
Today, Mummy already had in mind what to cook for lunch and dinner - Japanese Curry Rice. While carrying Leanne in her arms, she verbally told the domestic helper to prepare the ingredients and the step-by-step instructions on how to cook. Both had a simple version of that for lunch and will whip up more side dishes for Daddy's dinner later in the day.
Mummy will also get her day off to meet up with her girlfriends for dinner. Yay! She will be bringing Lleyton along while Daddy has kindly agreed to babysit Leanne for the evening. Great for Father-and-daughter's bonding.

Ok.. the first day of "freedom" was disastrous! Without Grandma around to help, Mummy suddenly felt so lost, no knowing when she should take her shower and her meals. Of course, the timing should revolve around Leanne but she was so unpredictable!
Needing a solution, Mummy decided to put the MIM sling to good use as it could at least freed up her hands to do some simple stuff. After great efforts trying to put Leanne to sleep, this girl finally took a nap in the sling. That was when Mummy managed to take a quick shower and her lunch.
For the rest of the afternoon, Leanne just refused to nap, either requesting to be latched on or be carried. Mummy thought it may be a good idea to stroll to the nearby mall to buy some stuff and also dinner for all. Leanne was probably not used to the spacious stroller that was used for the first time. Upon reaching the mall, she started wailing loudly at the payment counter. A "kind" auntie attempted to touch her. Upon seeing her intention to pacify Leanne, Mummy responded that it was ok and she could handle. This auntie suddenly turned "crazy" and started using vulgarities to scold Mummy, claiming that she should thank her. As the auntie was making a nuisance of herself at the mall, Mummy quickly apologise and "thank her" and make her way out of the shop before things turned unpleasant. After giving Leanne a comfort feed at the nearest nursing room, Leanne was happy and awake when they made their way home. It was indeed a demoralising first attempt for Mummy to bring baby out by herself.
Daddy and Lleyton reached home at around 5.30pm. Mummy quickly took her dinner with them (and Leanne in sling) and settled down for the evening as Daddy left for his class.
On the actual day, Daddy, Mummy and Leanne went around a few locations to distribute the first month cakes to colleagues and friends.
Here's baby Leanne on her first month!

As she is approaching one month old, she started to develop more distinctive "girly" features and characteristics. Some proofs as captured here:
