When fathers dress the little ones and are you walking somewhere baby?

*notice the bears are behind and not in front where it’s supposed to be.

My little sunshine is taking his first few steps as he slowly stabilizes himself. Alhamdulilah.

11 months of pure joy

15 May

Dearest sunshine,

 You make me so happy to be your mother. It has been 11 months full of blessings, trials, wonderful moments, lots of laughter and great happiness – alhamdulilah. 

You are slowly inching towards the 1 year mark and you’ve grown so fast. You’re crawling so fast, you’re pulling yourself to stand and even jumping on the spot when you want someone to carry out of the cot. You will cry if ummi places you in your cot and walk away. Anyone else does that, its fine. But of late, you’ve been able to play independently in your cot. If you’re on the floor, you want anything else but your toys – my little explorer so curious about anything you can get your little chubby fingers on. 

You are always waiting to pounce on your ummi. If I walk towards you, you will jump forward – not checking to see if it is safe like if you are at the edge of the bed. You are slowly beginning to learn to turn around and climb down the bed on your own but I must always remind you to turn around and slowly guide you to turn before jumping off the bed. You are clearly showing your preference now towards me and that makes me thrilled.

As for meals – we have started introducing more fruits and finger food as well as rice for lunch. You are now having 3 meals with some snacks in between. You really like your bear biscuits but healthy times biscuits are expensive. We still have the Heinz biscuits and you like that too. Ummi is looking for number and animal shapes biscuits which you’ve tried and really like. You seem to prefer using your left hand to eat. I hope you are not left handed like your uncle. I’ll love you no less if you are – just be whoever you are. 

You like to walk when we hold your hands and guide you along. You really love to push anna Muks little walker truck and walk really fast. You can even push it with anna Muks sitting on it.

I look forward to many more wonderful moments with you, my lil’ cutie pie.

With lots of love, tight hugs and sloppy kisses,

Your ummi

This was a little more picturesque to me. On the way there we saw gorgeous rows and rows of cherry blossoms.

Everland themepark, Seoul

12 May

It was tulip festival and oh so gorgeous! The flowers was the highlight of our trip to Everland. The themepark had everything from animal safaris to kiddy rides to gorgeous gardens but we didn’t have time for much since we went there on a Saturday and the place was packed to the brim and the queue to the roller coaster and merry go round was way too long. The husband and I were coming down with a cold so we couldn’t enjoy much.

I kind of enjoyed this part of the trip more than other parts.

I like the countryside.
I like the cool air.
I like the weather.
I like the sheeps.
I like the cheese making.
I like the farm.
I like the ski resort.

The next sheep to be sheared. The farmer threw some food and while all the sheeps were scurrying for food, he grabbed one by the hind leg abd dragged him out.
