My Favorites of 2013

2013 has been a challenging year, nonetheless. There are lots of ups and downs, happy times and bad times.....but still, I am blessed to have a loving family and most of all blessed to be a mom. Abby showed me everyday what it takes to be a good mom and what patience is all about whenever she drives me up the wall. I am still learning though, to be a good mom to not one but two child of mine. I am so excited for the arrival of our baby no.2 and 2014 is going to be a great year for our family! xoxo

Blessed Christmas 2013

As much as I would like to update all my backdated post, it just won't make any sense if I keep missing the current ones. Knowing that she's turning two in the coming January, I don't want to miss documenting our everyday lives so I've decided to backdated my post up until Abby's first birthday.

And when I have the time, I will share some of the memorable moments of her first year but what matter most is NOW. Hope to share more of her milestones and the little things that she says or does. I know I will thank myself when I read this blog 10 years or 20 years later.

Sending warmest greetings and Merry Christmas! xoxo

Presents, Presents and More Presents

01/26/2013 - These were taken a day after her 1st birthday party and we let her opened up all the birthday present that she's received from family and friends. Well, she was not that fascinated with the presents but instead showed more interest in the wrapping paper...lol.

 I love love this picture of us!

Abby's First Birthday

01/25/2013 - Abby turned 1st on 30th Jan but we held her party earlier at a local cafe called Small Potato. As you can see the theme was Minnie Mouse because I think that was the only cartoon character that Abby knew at that time. We had a buffet spread (by Small Potato) and a dessert table (done by me with the help of my friend, Yee Lin and my SIL, Ann). It was a fun night filled with laughter and our birthday girl enjoyed herself so much!

We specially ordered the minnie mouse cake for her and it weighed more than 2kg.

First Photoshoot

10/17/2012 - We had a photo shoot at a friend's house when Abby was 9 months old. We are blessed that she loves the camera and know just when to smile. But at this age, she can no longer sit quietly so my friend had to be quick in snapping, one after another. Our job was to make sure that she doesn't fall down from the sofa but unfortunately we couldn't prevent it and Abby had a minor fall. She cried a bit, I comforted her and she's back to her normal self in no time. She's definitely a trooper! 

Our first official photo shoot :)

I love this the most...it was candid yet beautiful! Abby fell on her left face and cried a bit, so I comforted her and gave her a kiss. Thanks to my friend who was quick in capturing this precious moment of us!

Week 29

8/19/2012 - And just like that......Abby is seven months old. She's learning to crawl and we have to keep a watchful eyes on her all the time.

Her hair is starting to grow...slow but surely
Starts crawling and can sit on her own
She loves to bite especially her car seat strap, stroller strap, rocker strap.....
She loves rice porridge
She still loves to smile and always so happy
She learning to wave good bye
She is talkative and very loud
She is very active and energetic
She is not afraid of strangers at all

That's my baby at seven months
