Thankful Today: 1 to 12 Dec

The past two weeks was hectic.
  • We welcomed Burger Boy's paternal AND maternal cousins with lots of helping out both sides.
  • Work seems to be picking up instead of tapering off. Who says year end is a lull period! 
  • And, i was rushing out Christmas orders for UrbanNook. Lots to do, but I would say extremely fulfilling.
On that note, I am  joining Mummy J on her "Thankful Today" photo linky, albeit a little late. Better than never I guess.

While we countdown to Christmas, it is always nice to count the little blessings in our lives...and I know I have many to be thankful for. So here's (some of) the pics:

1Dec - Beginning
Today, my niece Baby I is born,  about a month early. So on this day, I am grateful that Baby I is healthy and well, and am looking forward to the endless playtime Burger boy will have with her.

2 Dec - Clean 
My favourite sanitizer.... lavender smelling. Helps keeps the germs at bay!

3 Dec -Read
My early attempts at introducing reading to Burger boy. Not much of a success here....but it will be soon that he can start reading.

5 Dec - Smile
The smile that brings a smile to my face after each long day at work.

9 Dec - Family
Always thankful for my mum, always loving me and the boy. Always being there. Nothing like my own family.

12 Dec - Growth
Burger boy has come a long way to be such a big boy. Recalling how he was close to being non-existent to today a 6 month old weighing like a one year old. I am thankful for Jonas becoming part of my life after many tries and growing to be the healthy, happy and extremely cheeky baby he is today.

With another 2 weeks to go before we bid 2012 farewell, let's not forget to give thanks to all who have made some difference in our lives, no matter big or small.

Yilan for kids - Taiwan Travelogue

Our recent trip to Taiwan brought us to Yilan. Although we initially worried that it will be boring for the boy as it is more of a "back to nature" part of Taiwan, we enjoyed ourselves very much, and wished we spent more time there. Surprisingly, Yilan packs more fun for the kid than expected.

Here's some places you can check out if you are going down that way and I will let the pictures do the talking! 

My thoughts on the Glenn Doman Learning Method

When I was invited to attend a baby learning seminar about the Glenn Doman Learning Method , I wasn't prepared to feel what I did after that.

There were fleeting thoughts in that 3 hours for me to leave my job to be at home with J.

I also had my heart swell with pride despite not having been the most conscientious mum in helping my son to learn. Yet the time he spent in school has helped him reach all his developmental and learning milestones.  

Fun for kids in the West of Singapore- Part 1

My family moved to the western part of Singapore when I was 3 years old. For as long as I can remember , I have lived here, and will likely continue to for an even longer time.

At different points, people have asked me what's there to do here in the west as it seems so far away. The common comments I hear from friends while in school were "you live in tuas ah....the industrial area? " Or... "which kampong is that?".
