My 1st Step

Sunday, April 25, 2010

When I was 11 months old, I finally made my first step!!! I can walk now!! Initially I can only walk for 3 steps, then slowly day by day as I practice more I can walk longer distance now.

 So now most of the evening, mummy will walk together with me to the post box to collect mails.
Oh yeah, I also know how to put coins in my piggy bank now. Can I have more coins to put inside the save please??!

Mummy has been training me to keep my toys back to the toy box since 1 months and I have been doing very well to keep my toys being going to bed or for my nap. Mummy also asked me to keep the toys back after the children church and after finishing Life Group. However, sometimes I am still very reluctant to let go of my toys. Mummy can't I play a little while?

My 1st Birthday

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Yes, I finally turn one!! I am a big girl now :)
I have a series of celebration for my first birthday!!!
A week before my real birthday, we had a small birthday party celebration with all my little friends in mothers group. All of us turn one in the same month!! So the daddies and mommies came together with all of us to have a celebration at Auntie Lenice’s house. Mummy baked some of her cuppies for our celebration. All these faces are all of us who turns one!!! Are they cute??

On my actual birthday (14th April), when I woke up early in the morning, daddy mummy greeted me Happy birthday! I have no idea what’s that mean. Mummy said this is the day I was born last year. Daddy took a day off to celebrate this special day with me too!!
Mummy prepared a special birthday brekkie for me!!! Besides the normal muesli, mummy made me nice star shape toasts with butter spread
IMG_2101 They look so nice that I can’t resist but to eat them!!!
IMG_2109 The rest of the crumbs were for mummy’s brekkie. Thank you mummy for the pretty yummy brekkie.
IMG_2122 I had a very short morning nap on that day because I know it was my birthday. I want to spend the most of the day stay awake!! So I was awake playing while waiting for daddy mummy to get ready for the day out!
IMG_2126 Hello daddy mummy where are we going later?
IMG_2130 IMG_2134
After a while, mummy dress me up with a pretty dress and we head off to a place which was quite far away (cause I felt so bored sitting in the car and started to whin!!). After 45min drive, we finally arrived!!! Daddy brought us a Werribee Open Zoo!!! When we arrived at the destination I was so sleepy because I did not have a good morning nap.  So daddy mummy had to put me down in my pram to sleep. I slept like a baby while they had their lunch in the zoo cafe.

These are daddy mummy’s yummy foccacia and risotto. Daddy said this is also the day to celebrate their achievement as a parent for one year! So when i grown up I have to give them a treat for raising me up instead during my birthday. Oh no!!!

Mummy made a birthday cake + cupcakes for my birthday party. She was very busy with her project at work so only managed to make a simple design cake for me. The figurine on top of the cake is me with my sleep pal, Eeyoer.

Easter day out

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

During the Easter long weekend, mummy was busy with her work and cupcakes order, and daddy was busy with his gardening, so we didn’t go anyway except stay home most of the time. However, on Easter Monday, daddy mummy brought me together with Uncle Derrick, Auntie Suz & Amelie to Williamstown for a day out. We met Auntie Kai and Uncle Clarence there as well.

I enjoyed the car ride to Williamstown with the accompany of Amelie, Uncle Derrick and Auntie Suz.

It was a beautiful sunny day on that day. I enjoyed the fresh air and the crowd around.

This is me and Amelie walking around the park.

See how much I enjoyed myself while the adults were eating their lunch in the park.

 IMG_1904 IMG_1906

We had a great and relaxing afternoon with everyone. However, I cried and whined all the way back because I skipped my afternoon nap and was too tired.

After the Easter Monday, the weather in Melbourne is so cold and cloudy. We miss the sunny day now!!
