Milestones Update Again

Just a quick update
on Gab's milestones
(I have been getting
lazier, these milestones
are accumulated over
the weeks that I did
not update the blog...
some I can't remember
the dates):

1) Walking - took his first
few steps on 23 June
(wonder if he did not get
the viral fevel, could he be
walking on his birthday,
guess we will never know)

2) Shake head to indicate 'No'

3) Able to sort out shapes using shape sorter

4) Raises both his hands and throw his head
back when we say 'Praise God'

5) First words: Ma ma, Ah (for Thomas), dog, lion, no, kay

6) Favourite food now: spaghetti, rice, tauhu

7) Going really fast on his tricycle

8) Squat

9) Clap hands (this started way back....think more than
1 month ago)

10) Wet kisses for Mummy and sometimes Daddy

11) Hugs for almost everyone

12) Point here and there (can identify some common
things by pointing when we ask him)

13) Fuss to go out every weekend - whenever he
sees mummy and daddy at home, it means he can
go out 'kai kai'

14) Love picture cards - will actually crawl towards
you, sit down and clap his hands when you are about
to flash these cards

15) Can understand simple words - stand, sit, wait,
carry, come here, bathe, sleep, change clothes,
brush teeth, drink, eat, pain, beat, no, knock, hold
(will update when I remember more)

From Baby to Toddler

My Baby is Finally 1

It has really been quite a while since my last post. Let me go about my usual excuses like being very busy at work and tired at home.....hahaha but guess it is not a good excuse since Gab makes his significant transition from a baby to toddler without any updates on his blog. Sorry baby!

2 weeks have passed since Gab 1st birthday (18 June) and to tell you the truth I am still collecting the photos from Thomas and my friend, Jenn.

Yup, a big thank you for Jenn, Roger and Tammy who make time all the way from Singapore to celebrate this joyous event with us. Without whom we will only be left with memories of the party without any digital evidence (we were too busy running around to take photos or videos). We really appreciate their help and company. Love you guys!

So actually I do not have all the photos yet but will load those few that are noteworthy and the remaining you can catch it from our photos link.

Gabriel's 1st Birthday Party (June 17)
10am - Send Gab to babysitter
12pm - Have lunch with Jenn and Roger
2pm - Vacumn (thanks to Roomba), mop, decorate house with balloons and banners
4pm - Collect cake and pick Gab up
6pm - Left babysitter place without Gab as he was still sleeping. Caterers arrived to set up tables and food
7pm - Arrival of first guest (babysitter family, my elder sister and brother-in-law, Renee and *star of the day* - Gab)
8pm - Arrival of more guest, makan and drinking time begin. (We got food to occupy the hungry ones, toys and cartoon to entertain the young ones and booze to intoxicate the older ones)
9pm - Cake cutting and Gab got a taste of real 'food' ;p (a sign of toddlerhood)
10pm - Bedtime for Gab
11pm - Clean up
12am - Bedtime for mummy and daddy

Inclusive children more than 60 people attended the party (think this is the last time I am going to organize this type of party...hahahaha)
