Warming up ... on V-day.

The weather is finally warming up. And we are all feeling better, thanks to everyone for their concern and advice. Hopefully that will be the end of it for this season...we all know how winter tends to drag on til March or April here.

Our little Kay has grown so much, she's hardly little any more. Holding her, laughing together, smelling her hair, playing tickle, giving hugs, high-fives and kisses ... makes me want Kay to stay little. But that is not going to happen i guess. She is quite a TV addict now, mostly my fault and I'm not particularly proud of myself. But she is also learning lots from the tele...and she is very focused when she is that helps with concentration ? Can't be all that bad, right? Anyway, it was nice that she made her first Valentine's Day card for us. Her babysitter aunty Dorin, make the kids do little heart shaped cards with their hand-prints on it. Very sweet.

Happy V-day for mama and dada indeed.

flu season number 3

It's increasingly hard to keep this blog updated. Doesn't help that my head feels like it's weighed down onto the floor. It's been almost a week now, and I'm still feeling terrible from the sinus cold and cough. I think I have just witnessed the inevitable that just happened... 3 coughs from Kay. She might have caught it...and that is just not good. We just keep passing it back and forth ...wonder when it's going to end. Really looking forward to some warmer weather now.

Chinese New Year went in a flash. Dinner with friends and lots of food. Then Superbowl sunday last week...again lots of food. That's when I start having the cold.

Anyway, Kay has been a great help nowadays, or at least she tries to be. She is eager to run an errand or pick stuff up from the floor and throw it into the garbage or point out to me where it's dirty .... yes, the house isn't spic and span ... and my baby is telling me to clean up.

Cheeyuen met up with his cousin Lawrence here last week ... one of the first few family visiting us. He is here on an exchange program in the university of Waterloo. Hopefully we'll see him again before he leaves.
