Good-Bye 2008

Papa & Mama tried to keep Louis awake to count down to 2009 together. What's better than hanging out in the downstairs mall crowded with people to keep Louis awake?! Louis finally fell asleep at 11-ish, leaving Papa & Mama to enjoy the midnight fireworks by themselves.

Year 2008 has been a wonderful and memorable year as Louis joined our family. This little angel has brought us lots of fun and joy (and housework!) and we look forward to the coming of Year 2009 to witness the continual growth of baby Louis.

Best present to Papa

After 2 weeks of first saying "Mama", Louis finally called out "Ba Ba" on Boxing Day. It's surely the best present to Papa!

Fresh air

Louis has been suffering from running nose the last couple days and missed the Christmas/New Year Eve party organized by Papa/Mama's friends. Instead Papa took us to the park to get some fresh air which is good for Louis' health.

Colorful Playground 2 (bigger version)

Drop & Watch

Mama is giving Louis special permission to drop things at will at this stage; when Louis gets a bit older, he will be responsible to pick things up and clean up his own mess.

Tunnel time

Louis enjoys crawling through small spaces. Either the tunnel in the playground or the dinning chair at home can fascinate him.

Boxing day

Louis received a full stroller of Christmas gifts from many people. He's rather happy.
Mama received a Christmas gift from Papa, and said it's the perfect gift! With this wonderful Octopus watch, she can travel with Louis hassle-free without groping her purse.

"Silent night" before Christmas

Our little angel Louis got his first fever on the day he turned to 10 months old (23 Dec). Louis spent his first Christmas eve resting at home and thanks God that the sickness was quickly healed.

What would be better than dancing to celebrate Christmas?! May I now proudly present to you the Christmas dance 2008 led by baby Louis. Enjoy!

Balance development

Everything pushable in the house becomes Louis' great walking aide. The toy car with music is his favorite which he can push across the floor.

Capturing the non-stop Louis

Taking video is always easier than picture as Louis is moving non-stop these days. But the lovely pictures below are surely worth the effort.

"Papa" or "Mama"?

This ends the competition about "who Louis would call out first" ...

Wednesday, December 10, 2008


Papa and Mama like to use carrier to hold Louis. It feels very intimate and close to Louis, and also allows Papa and Mama to "feel" what attracts and excites Louis.

Happy crawling

Papa and Mama think it's necessary to put on record how fast Louis can crawl, as he will sooner or later stop crawling and just walk. Baby grows so fast, and we should capture all special moments in different stages as much as possible!

Well thirsty

A cup of water with a straw can quickly quench the thirst.

Cruising in the park

Water fountain works well as a motivator to make Louis keep cruising. Papa and Mama are impressed!

Keep exploring

"Am I in a dream? How come I can't see Papa & Mama clearly?"
"No, Louis, it's just the humidifier."

Louis is at exploratory stage. It really brings lots of fun to Papa and Mama when seeing him being stimulated by new things.

Give me the beat

Enjoying finger food

Louis has acquired a new skill again. Actions seem to be repetitive and boring during practice. But Mama is very delighted to be part of it.

First Sunday School Class

Amazing 9 months

Today is Louis' 9 months old! Our angel can now hold to stand by himself!

The past 9 months have been truly an amazing experience for Papa and Mama; though tiring, but full of joy. Witnessing the growth of Louis in past 9 months has been a true privilege and blessing from our God.

Family dining table

Papa, Mama and Louis all sit around the dining table, eating our meals, and sharing with each other the stories of our day.

"Papa's fruit platter and Mama's recipe congee are very tasty. Pumpkin is one of my favorites!" - Louis

Autumn getaway

Autumn is best for picnic. Louis had a good time playing ball with baby Kei Kei. Mosquitoes loved Papa and Auntie Yan Yan.

First pair of shoes

Mama took Louis to the park where he could get used to his first pair of shoes.

"Free Fall" - baby version

Mama loves excitement; "Free fall" is her favorite ride in the amusement parks.
Louis seems to have the same craving for excitement in his genes; "Transparent elevator" in shopping malls currently achieves the same purpose.

Uncle Piano

Mama started playing piano at age 6.
Louis started at month 8, with the same piano.
Hope Louis is at least as talented in music as Mama.

Take care of Mother Nature

Louis likes the nature. Our generation surely needs to take care of the nature, so that the next generation can continue to enjoy it.

New car

Louis boarded on his first car. Excited, he kept honking like a Mainland China taxi driver.

Brushing teeth

Louis likes brushing his teeth... though he only has two teeth now.

Panda in the house

Beware! This panda seizes and destroys anything in sight!
