2 years and counting

Come tomorrow, it'd be 2 years since we signed the papers. 2 years of journey as husband and wife, 2 years of commitment and everything else.

It's not an easy one certainly. We had our own fair share of bumps, hiccups, disagreement along the way. Arguments, quarrels kicked in every now and then.

How true when they say it takes two hands to clap. When you put 2 individuals together, the key to a healthy relationship is to communicate, compromise and accommodate. It's easier said than done of course, cos i'm up til now still learning how to become a good wife.

But i know i'm getting there...

My Lunch Buddy

Quick shot taken this afternoon during our department's monthly lil' fun time. It's supposed to encourage and cheer everyone for the hardwork put in for work. I don't know, but it kinda stressed me up. The merrier or the more food they provide, the more pressure i'll be getting.

Anyway, below is my dearie lunch buddy, Mulan, feeding me strawberry. Yumz! Days pass better with her at work :D

Wakey wakey, it's Friday!

This morning as I tried to wake hubby up, i realized Chloe imitated my action too by touching and patting on him. I thought she was just playing along. But when i tried to ask, "Chloe, wake Papa up!" She would repeat them on my cue! I got all excited and quickly grabbed my camera to memorize this moment down :)

Camera set. I said, "Chloe, go wake Papa up!"

Chloe: "Help! Papa doesn't seem to hear me!"

Chloe shook hard...

Chloe blurred...

Chloe: "Haha..Papa pretend one....."

Too happy by the kiss, hence she lost balance...

Chloe: "Mama i give up, next time i don't want to wake Papa up already."

Daddy's Lil' Girl

Love this photo taken by Alice during the gathering at Hard Rock. Both my loved ones are looking great here. Thanks babe!

Same angle, same pose, same look...

Before and After

This is the comparison of Chloe before sick and after recovery.
Do you see a difference?

*Photo taken 4 days apart.

A Mother's Heart

Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on. Chewed on. Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know the bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.

*Another big thanks to Jessie for sharing the poem with me :)

Oct Babies Meet Up on Vesak Day

This was the Oct 07 babies gala gathering taken place at Hard Rock Cafe, 19.05.2008 :)

A family portrait to kick start the photo session,
but Chloe was too engrossed with the table cloth! :(

Chloe and Mama!

Chloe and Emily

Babies Sean, Chloe, Ziqian and Adrienne.
Now everybody were engrossed with the table cloth!

But it seems Chloe had her longest share.... What's so nice about it baby?

Baby Lleyton came into the picture..

"Chloe please sit down just like others..."

"Now that's good girl.."
Oh, Aralyn approaching too..

Chloe touching two potential boyfriends' legs.

And asked everyone to look at the patterns of the cloth, again....

Yeah, a close up with Lleyton

But Lleyton was into his own fist, his own world, sorry Chloe...

More babies joined in the fun, there were Kelly and Jae
Chloe insisted to stand up again..

"Ok lah, you win lah.."

More and more babies, Aralyn came back to join the gang.
There was Anders too at the front.

But Chloe remained the tallest! Hiaks!

Chloe smiling at the camera.. :)

Keep on smiling for Papa who was busy behind the camera...

Exhausted liao,.. then we headed home....

*All thanks to Jessie for bringing everyone together :)

Valencia's mummy brought gymboree bubbles and demonstrated it for us too. It cheered up Chloe a lot, and me too. Thanks Val! Love the bubbles :D
