My Kids and their Chinese New Year Clothes!

We drove past this temple with all these HUGH joss sticks,
the shorter ones cost round about RM200 - 400,
the taller ones at the back would probably cost RM800-1000??

The Day has finally Arrive!

It's Official!
I've stop breastfeeding Caleb... *sniff**sniff* For the last month it has only been the morning one left, I've wean him off the rest, which was easy, but hard emotionally, easy becoz I am working full time now.
I am really sad about weaning him off his early morning feed a well, but ..sigh.. with Kaitlyn it was a pretty easy decision, once her upper teeth were out, that was it! Mr Bambam has got his upper teeth a few months back, and this little cheeky little man of mine, bites just for the sake of hearing me yelp! He doesn't do it hard, but hard enough to yelp! And at 6 am in the morning, it's not very pleasent! So.. we have decided to stop it all ....
11 months!

2/3 of my Grand Mamas!

This is my "Popo", my mum's adopted mother,
She is now 95 years old! She has been living with us since forever! And she has been drinking Coke ever since she discovered it some 70 years ago, she would never drink anything else! I am not looking forward to the day when she leaves us! Just the thought of it hurts! Here is what my brother had to "blog" about her.

And This is "Ah Mah". My dad's mum, with 6 children and still going strong at 68. She is such a lovely and gentle woman. Neither am I looking forward to the day we have to miss her!

Unfortunetly, none of my grandfathers are still alive.
Sigh.. I don't want them to grow any older, nor do I want myself to grow older! :p

Daddy has a moment... finally!

So it was daddy (me) who first saw Caleb walking properly!

I was dealing with Kaitlyn, trying to calm her down from another of her 'over-hyped tanties', and out of the corner of my eye, I saw a toddler wander past pulling a 'buzzy-bee'. I took at least 2 seconds to register the fact that it was Caleb wandering past as though it was the most natural thing in the world for him to do that! Sheesh, I mean, he just stood up, grabbed the string to pull it with, and walked past me to the other side of the room and sat down. I kinda jumped when I realised! So a frantic call to Dee and broke the news of our son wandering around the house with his toys!

It took him about 4 hours to decide to walk. Wow. It was like someone switched on a light inside him and he just walked, just like that. He must've decided 'bugger this on my knees, they're getting sore, and I can't see much from down here'. So up he got!

1 day, that's all it took in the end, just 1 day. We've been waiting for the little sprog to walk for a month, and then just gets up and gets on with it! No warning, no 'baby steps' (pardon the pun!), just up, walk, and had this nonchalant look on his face!

Hilarious! God, I love my kids...!
