the most wonderful time of the year at the most wonderful winter circus

my little date

took a week off to spend more time with the boys....  

on the first day,
it happened to be little bb's day off from school too.

perfect for a little date

just the two of us....
walking leisurely
silly chatting and jiggling
having a relaxed lunch
followed by chocolate ice cream
(seeing him ordering, paying and running back to me was priceless)

i love love love these little quiet moments with my big baby.

"where have you been? we missed you!"

home after spending three days in the hospital

brownie and sugar surely missed bbb

..... and looks like bbb has lots about his experience to share with them too....

having most of his energy back,
bbb is very curious about the xmas tree....
(and since then, have been having a great time tasting all the ornaments that he can reach out to

thank you our firemen!

making up for last year
i try to sign up for as many parent volunteering as i can this year...

after last week's walk around the neighborhood to understand more about the community we live in,
this round,
it's a visit to the fire station

the kids behaved very well
probably because of all the gadgets being shown,
they were all very engaged and asked lots of questions
and some good questions too!
like, what to do when there is no water....  (@_@|||)

one of the most interesting part was about the pole drop
the kids had their eyes wide open when one of the fire men demonstrated how to descend from them...

"can we try?"
sorry, cannot.

learning more about how our fire men work together to protect and save lifes
(those boots and outer wear are really really suppeerrr heavy, 
imagine wearing all the gear and fighting against every second surrounded by smoke and fire....)
we really owe a big thank you to our fire men!

his toys, mine toys, our toys

the longest weekend

one of the reasons for the late updates here is because of this....

bbb has not been doing great lately... 
after the hand foot mouth disease
he had to be hospitalized....

it started with him having fever since tuesday....
with medication, the fever remained high
so on thursday, we took him to our dr..
said it was virus infection 
took more medication
but the fever didn't come down, 
in fact it stayed high throughout the night 

we were really worried
(we didn't have this experience with little bb when he was at the age of bbb)

friday morning, we went to the hospital 
and was advised to let him stay in the hospital
for his fever didn't come down, started having diarrhea 
he didn't want to eat / drink at all so he was also becoming dehydrated....

shortly after the paperwork was done
he was sent to the treatment room to get his IV and blood test

i wasn't allowed to go in
i could only stand outside
hearing him crying and screaming
it really tore my heart into pieces

then i spent the next two nights in the hospital with him

poor little baby must be traumatized
for he wouldn't sit / sleep by himself
i needed to carry him throughout
even when he was sleeping....

we were sent home on sunday when his fever finally came down
and he was willing to start eating / drinking a little

a really really bad weekend.....
and it felt very long....

the worst part was
seeing his little hand all wrapped up with the IV inserted
i just couldn't bear it.......

the kiss

brownie has a very loving and patient soul
he is always trying to kiss us

this morning, after numerous attempts
he finally got the right angle and position to give his kiss of the day

this little man is trying to stand up!

.... more celebration!

and the birthday celebration continues....

same old spot as last year,
same good old friends,
the best birthday cake by dear kai ma joanna.
(these are the cutest superheroes i have ever seen, thanks a billion kai ma!)

and of course,
we have a new participant this year!
who is quietly sitting by himself,
munching his way away....

mami can't wait to see you up and running with the rest *smile*

and this was a twist...
the kids were daring each other to enter into this "dark spot"

1, 2, 3.... and the rest went in

"i am NOT afraid"
"i am not afraid TOO"
"what's in there?"
"NO, there is something scary!"
"i see......"
"what DID you see?"
"i see .....  cars!"

outbreak of laughters!
oh yes, cars are sometimes quite scary...

"no, i see something else SCARY!"

ooh yeah,
that's indeed very scary!


thanks to all the dear friends for coming over.....

i think i may just have to stop making birthday hats for little bb
since his first birthday celebration, i have been making the little hats to go with the theme...
i still have all of them in the closet

this year, he was really reluctant to put it on...
oh well, something can't be forced...
plus, i got a new target now to satisfy my desire to put my itchy hands into use *smile*

... and the celebration continues

last year,
i wasn't able to participate in little bb's school activities as much as i would like
due to my baby bump...
it included the birthday celebration at school.

seeing his friends' moms bringing birthday cakes to the class throughout the year,
i feel bad for not being able to it for little bb.

i made it one of the must-do things for this year.

the plan was to do this before his birthday and the term break
but it was cancelled due to the hand foot mouth disease which prevented him from going to school.

the class teacher was kind enough to let me reschedule...

it is such a big thing to me (i know i know, it's nothing big... *smile*)
that i took half day off for this special delivery to school.

and of course, the cake has to be special too *smile*

superhero cake by sparks & cakes...

i really love their meringue kisses
and today, i have the perfect excuses to get them again!

and just which superhero is this?!it's one of a kind!superhero A, by mami!
