The Inevitable has come.

img_20160927_093340LAst weekend, we took JH for an eye check, as soon as we noticed that he constantly blink his eyes when watching the TV. When ask about his condition at school, teacher told me that there are instances when he would go in front of the white board during mini lectures.

So after an excruciating pain of 4 hours waiting queue from registration to payment, not mentioning the discomfort of getting JH to dilate his eyes, we were told that our little guy needs glasses. It’s not like we didn’t see it coming (since hubbs & I have very weak eyes), it’s just that we had been hoping for that miracle that perhaps he might skip that gene.

We can give him the world, except for perfect eyesight and it just kills me. 😥

This is just a typical rendition of the day where everything went smoothly, according to plan and schedule. Most of the time, life with a baby and a 4 year old is always chaotic and topsy-turvy. Sometimes, I slept pass 12am and sometimes I woke up realised that its close to 8am! When you have kids, your life is never in your hands, really. 😛

It’s been awhile…

img_20160922_084543Off late, my firm had been swarmed with proposals…both big & small job. It’s been awhile since we’re asked to submit proposals & presentations. Times were bad and design consultancies were surely impacted. Anyways I’m just glad to be involved in design again.

Freebies.

How does he bamboozle his way? I have no idea.

These were all accumulated in less than a week!

3 months with Junna.

img_20160914_091203Our baby girl turns 3 month old yesterday! She’s grown quite a bit (no longer a wee little pea!). She is indeed a sweet little pea. After turning 1 month shortly, she has started to sleep through the night. She’s so quiet sometimes that I would forgot that she’s there. She hardly cries, her tears are mostly for legitimate reasons e.g. hungry, wet nappy and when she needs a cuddle to sleep.

Before her arrival, I have doubts whether I will be able to love her as much as I love JH. 3 months passes by and I’m marveled how much I love this little pea of mine! I love her toothless smile, her cooing sound and how she likes to snug her head onto my chest when she wants to sleep. Everything about her is just perfect!

Happy 3 months old baby girl, I feel so blessed to be your mommy.
