Keren @ 5.5 months

Keren still loves her fingers and definitely very comfortable being on the tummy, raising her head higher to look around. At about 4+ month, we witnessed her flipping from her tummy to her back but it was occasional and these days she simply doesn't do it and rather just lie down when she got too tired. She's not flipping yet though we see her rolling onto her sides.
 She's holding her two little feet and playing around with them a lot more. Most times, she will be pulling off her socks. She enjoys sitting up. Guess there's more to look at with a different perspective when upright. We still need to support her as she can't sit on her own yet.
The bumbo worked wonder to make sitting up safer for her.
She's now very good with grabbing toys under the playmat, reaching out and getting her hands on what she wants. That means pulling anything within her reach. She can pass toys from one hand to the other and chew on it and even reach for a toy nearby while on tummy to grab.
OOoooooo…she's just so cute when she plays with her tongue…little sharp pointy one…

She loves to play peek-a-boo. Always putting on the nappy to cover her face.
Life had been real busy since school started so tracking her development closely and simulating further have been challenging. Nonetheless, watching her smile each day and making more babbles while she plays almost amaze me and brighten the day. Posting on the blog is definitely slow with so many other things to manage. Staying home with 3 kids is no joke but looking at them grow and talking about their school day and most importantly. seeing them smile and sticking to you simply means millions. Guess it's learning to work within our means and savor the moment while it lasts.

CNY @ Zoo

As always, we always enjoyed our family time together after a day of visitation at no other place than the school. The kids just love this place. Welcoming the year of the Dragon!
 The kids were fascinated with the new exhibit - the mole rats! They were really tiny...

Chinese New Year

The night before we had the usual reunion dinner…loads of food and loads of people
We ushered in the Chinese New Year with new pajamas and the kids received their 压岁钱。
Even Keren knows what it means to receive an and bao!

It's Chinese New Year visitation with the cousins having great fun!
 Our little sweetie pie was enjoying the day too! Just loved her smile..
 Never missing the family pictures…We are getting too big to be all in one picture.

Keziah's lost her first tooth

Yes, it's early. She's not even 6 yet and she's lost her first tooth today!

Abel's 4!

Abel turned 4 today! We brought a cake to celebrate his birthday with his classmates. Such a coincidence that his birthday is the same day as his sister's friend, Di'der.
 In full McQueen gear. So obvious that McQueen is his favorite craze at the moment.
 Being there for his birthday sure makes a difference. It's always so heartwarming to see their brilliant smiles.

Back to School

All cheery to be back at school….

Welcoming 2012

It was a quiet start for the year. We stayed home and just enjoyed time together. The kids busied themselves with painting. This time a sun catcher photo frame. Look at the concentration at the piece.
The end product.
Then it was Lego time where, together with Daddy, they put the sets that they had gotten during Christmas together.
 The whole troop that we have...
