Happy Lunar New Year to all who’s celebrating!!! 🏮
This year, I’m celebrating the new year with a new member in the family – my gorgeous baby boy, Dylan!!
My heart is so full ❤️
Our family portrait on the second day of Chinese New Year. It actually felt more like the first day of CNY ‘cos it was a Saturday and Mr S didn’t have to work so we could dress up and go visiting, hehehehe…
Love, love, love this qipao my aunt bought her from Hong Kong. She wore it for CNY as well last year but it fits her much better this year.
She went to a dental appointment with me in the morning and my dentist was so nice to do a quick general check up for her on the spot right after I was done! My brave little girl wasn’t scared of the dentist at all. Hooray for nailing her first dental check up!
Second day of CNY visiting! Also had a couple of friends over for CNY tidbits and cakes. So glad that the late night bakings are finally over! 💆🏻♀️
Brought the kids to watch a lion dance performance at St Thomas More this morning. It was Naomi’s second but I doubt she remembered the first at all ‘cos she was only 2 months old then and was fast asleep in the pram hahahahaha! She really enjoyed it this time. She even got to ‘feed’ the lion a red packet, hehehehe…
I’ve been trying to get her to speak Mandarin, teaching her simpler words such as animal names but I don’t think she has any clue at all, lol! Her pronunciation’s really funny and she really sounds like an angmoh trying to speak Mandarin!
Update on my Invisalign progress!!
This is me after five sets of aligners!! (Note: Filtered photo. Sadly, I look nothing like this in real life HAHA!)
Real, unfiltered photos (Day 1 vs. Week 6). I can really see the difference when I place the photos side by side!! Can you? I also think I lost a bit of weight. Maybe it’s just the flash though. 🤷🏻♀️
Dylan’s Sleeping Routine…
Praise and thank you Lord! Dylan’s sleeping pattern is much, MUCH better now! I was just reading my last post just then and realized how depressed I was just a month ago over his bedtime crankiness and unsettled behavior.
I was just trying my luck every night. Trying different things and routines to see if it would help him settle himself to sleep better and I guess I finally hit the jackpot and we’ve finally found out what works for us! He’s still not sleeping through the night but I’m just so, so glad that there are no more crazy tantrums before bedtime and that he can now sleep for 3-4 hours straight as compared to the past 1 hour intervals. 🙂
Because of this, I now have my newfound freedom every night after he goes to bed. After bathing and cleaning the dirty dishes and tidying up the kitchen and play area, I get at least an hour or two ALL TO MYSELF!!!
I’ve been keeping myself busy with Sims 4, even finishing Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan (GASPS!). I’m currently the last on the reservation queue for China Rich Girlfriend.
By the way, is it just me or does time passes super quickly when you’re spending time by yourself?! It’s bizarre!!!
