What’s going on for the last month

More than a month passed since Bruce the II was born. The very little one now engage with his sole food supplier all the time. I am tightening the relationship with Abbie. Now it is time to wrap up.

For the past month, I am the full time baby sitter, from morning till bed. Playing In different places each day with Abbie, take afternoon snap and story time as well as the bed time. It is much better than staying with the new born bomber. Another benefit of staying with the kid is I always feel that I did not give enough time for her and it is time to fill the gap. I would not regret when imam getting older for not share enough time with the family.

With 2 extra little member in the family, your life will be much different and sadly there is no other way to rollback. On the very bright side is the little ones bring lots of energy and make u feel young. Their day to day innocent does bring many good times before sleep and make me sleep better.

Abbie likes her little brother a lot, not sure for what purpose. the younger one received many many kisses from his elder sister every day, this is the moment that we think girl is much acknowledged than boy as she know how to take care and please others earlier. Anyway we will see and not surprise that they will have serious fight in a few years.

Not much to say about the little one since he with mum all the time. Since his mum did not complain about the lack of sleep everyday, I am assume he is slightly better than when Abbie was born. He grows in the normal pace, both input and output functionality works very well. Allister looks very similar to Abbie when compare their  picture side by side. As the date the post was written he is around 4.5kg which gained 1.7kg in 6 weeks.

Other news, daddy had his birthday and we have a few visitors, thanks for all your kindness and wishes. This is the first week for me to back to work, after a long break, I am not in working mode and it may take some time to switch back on. Another thing to mention, I miss DouDou very much while I am working.

I was also consider a whole new web site for the little boy, however, i decide to put all update under the same doudou domain. As she is the big sister of the family therefore should receive some privileges. However the pinky theme may not suitable for little boy which will be changes when daddy had some spare time.

Of course a lot of pictures were taken. For the memory of the family.

A Good Easter Break

So much rain since beginning of 2012, seems from memory the no more than 20 sunny days for the past quarter. Many place get flooded, luckily not affect where we live.

Also busy season for work since the company facing one of the two major release per year in April and I am manage to meet the target.  For Abbie, everyday is holiday still, and for us just the opposite way. She can logically interpret most of the questions, and creatively answer some very difficult ones, although she cannot go to toilet totally by herself, but she can tell you whenever she needs to. Physical condition, 92cm and 15kg, the weight does not changed but the height keep increasing.  She caught a cold and was sicked for the whole week, when she recovered, the other family member start to catch the virus from where she left.

The first 4 months always passed by in a heart beat, Easter is the first check point towards the end of the year, Abbie is too young to enjoy this event, maybe from next year, she might be more and more excited whenever the big event approaches. She need story time now, her favourite story is three little pigs, when I tell the story, I made one of the characters to be her, the name is Pig DouDou. Family events still growing, some big dinners in recent few weeks. Her 2nd semester swimming class just finished before Easter, as expected Abbie cannot swim by her self along, all she can do is tight with a floater and hold some body then splash. Also she can do a pretty good monkey walk too :) .  She learned a few new songs remember a few new words. every 2 or 3 days, she give us a happy surprise by make up some new words by her self.

Is the year of dragon, it will be year of unstable, things always changing, challenge everywhere so does the opportunity. Hopefully all the people we love and love us can enjoy and have a great time.

2011 ~ 2012 Before Chinese New Year

Almost 2 month since last post. clock is ticking as usual. now it is 2012, according to the movie, everyone need to jump into the boat to escape the end of the world. :)

Looking back 2011, for our family it is not too bad: almost every new year resolution we made at the beginning of 2011 was fulfilled (should be set the target a bit higher :D ), the only one left behind is one day one word for daddy. hopefully I will pickup from this year. now it is time to make the 2012 resolution:

  • 1. All families healthy & happy
  • 2. Get fit: drop weight and keep looking nice.
  • 3. Enjoy life as well as work: have good time with family, have good time @work
  • 4. Keep updated: this is must have for now.
  • 5. $$$$: not top wish, but good to have :)
  • 6. Construction project going well.
  • 7. All trouble go away.
  • 8. Find good investment.
  • 9. Overseas Trip/Holiday:
  • 10. Secret Wish … :)

Here is a few summary of what’s going on for the past two month with Abbie. most of the friends cross the 2 years barrier, we had a few birthday party to join and of course one of the part is Abbie’s. We also had a wonderful X-mas vacation with other two families @ empire bay, 3 days 2 nights trip seems too short for 3 little ones.  They see the crocodile, feed the turtles, touch the snakes, nothing more exciting than that, for adults, they either too happy to describe or too drunk to remember :D

Physical condition is good, 14kg and 88cm. eat well sleep well, however she just getting a little naughty and sometime behave not so good. Brain developing well, she can remember more than 100 words that from a large block of paragraph in the poem but she is not so interested with it. Her best progress is in singing and dancing.

Making a few new little ones, doudou mum really like to communicate with other mums to exchange the knowledge they had with their kids. This circle will growing and growing until we all get old.

There is not much changed for mum & dad life. similar working situation. Everything seems pretty good. I did not take extra leave rather the normal public holiday however I feel that this years xmas is better than any one during the past.

We went to the NanTian Temple at the beginning of 2012 to see the Buddha and seek for the inner peace. I remember the last time we went there when Abbie cannot crawl, this time she with us, now u see the little one grow really fast.
