both boys have recovered from HFM
and they can be released!

finally can breathe some fresh air

back to a normal weekend...

on saturday, we went cycling along the west kowloon promenade

for me, it has been over a year since i last cycled due to the baby bump...
so happy to be able to feel the breeze through my hair and face again....

on sunday, we went to the science park with both boys...
this time, it's scooter fun

it rained quite heavily after we finished our lunch there..
but of course, the rain couldn't put out the eagerness in little bb to just run about....

while we wait for the rain to stop, he was running around with his scooter
laughing his silly laugh as he felt the rain falling on him...

we were indeed lucky as the rain, actually quite heavy, did eventually stop.

it's bbb's first time to the science park 
and being his usual curious self
he just couldn't stop looking around

(last night while going through some old photos,
somotu found a picture of little bb wearing the little white hat somotu got him...
the picture was taken at science park around the age of bbb now....
somotu wanted to go today with bbb, wearing the same hat....
and of course, the same stroller...

the hat pictured above, wasn't that same hat...
i took along two hats with us just in case...
and this blue one is from me....)

and here,
little bb showing off his batman socks...
he loves them as....  they come with capes at the back!

now i want to make more for myself and friends *smile*

i find it very odd these days
where everyone in the town seems to know when and what signal of a typhoon will be hoisted...

it seems like everything has to be well managed and announced in advance,
otherwise, certain people will be blamed or receive complaints
even for weather....

as expected, today is a day off for us because T8 was hoisted in the morning...

spent almost the whole day at home with the babies...

very very naughty food
somotu said this is THE food to have on a typhoon day off....

and it has to be very exact,
fried eggs
luncheon meat
choi sum
instant noodles

late afternoon,
the signal was lowered...

when it was also bedtime for the babies,
i went out to meet my girlfriends
and had a great night out at one of the girl's new home....

i do miss these gatherings and laughter over nothing

food sampling

so far bbb has tried
baby cereal
winter squash
winter melon

tomorrow let's try carrots

next month, 
he will be promoted to the next level.....

a meal to replace one milk feeding!

so far,
he is interested in the food (well, except winter squash)

he sits with us during dinner time
when he sees us putting food in our food,
he gave us this eager look
with his little mouth open and close...

the other day,
he almost buried his head into the bowl of tofu

so cute and funny *smile*

big feet small feet cute feet

little bb is still staying at home
waiting for full recovery....

for someone active, 
and who loves going to school,
these few days have been long and boring...

one up side to this is that
i see him making more effort to interact with bbb

holding bbb,
reading together,
playing together with bbb's toys,
feeding bbb,
patting bbb's head and face


the best part
was doing the baby talk

bbb goes "oooooo"
little bb goes "ooo ooo oooo"

bbb goes "aaaaaaaa"
little bb goes "aaa aaa aaa"

with this
it suddenly become very real to me that 
one day,
these two precious babies of mine will be interacting and talking to each other!

i know this is silly... of course they will be talking 
but this never felt as real as the moment i see them doing this baby talk

one day,
the two will be happily chit chatting
then the next minute fighting over toys

one day,
the two will be holding hands
then the next minute arguing over nothing

one day,
the two will be cycling side by side
then the next minute getting upset at one being faster than the other

one day,
the two will be sitting next to each other doing homework
then the next minute arguing over who knows it all

i can really see and feel it coming now

thank you God for these precious little gifts
thank you God for answering my prayers

sometimes i look at myself
and wonder how i could ever be a good parent, providing them the guidance they need

God, please help remind me how blessed i am at times of doubt
please guide me when i feel lost and lack confidence
