The "S" pose

Mama really likes Kristen's "S" pose, which she described as "very lady-like" ... hmm ...

Happy 2 years old, Louis!

Our dearest Louis,

Happy birthday! You are two years old!

We praise God every day for giving us the privilege to raise you as our beloved son, and to witness your growth every day. In the past 2 years, there were so much joy in seeing you grow and learn. Undoubtedly, there were frustrating and tiring times, especially you seem to have quite a strong personality and opinion. When seeing you rolling on the floor & screening to try to get what you want, we do feel sad and frustrated. We pray continuously for patience, and a lovely heart to teach you to be become a man of God in future.

To celebrate your birthday, we had 3 separate cake-cutting occasions this year (cakes from different uncles and aunties, Papa & Mama). You were more interested in cutting the cakes, but ate none of them! Anyway, it was good to show you how we share our joy and things (cakes) with our friends and families. Mama particularly had strong feeling that she has entered a new stage of her life, with the need to prepare your b-day mini cupcakes and goodies bag for your friends in school ...

You are a big boy now, especially you now also need to help take good care of your Mui Mui Kristen. You have done very well so far. You love kissing and hugging your sister. When she cries, you always run to her crib to see how she's doing. We can tell that you exercise your self-control to be extra gentle to Kristen. We appreciate it very much.

Very soon, you will be starting full-time school life at kindergarten. We hope that you will continue to enjoy learning and meeting new friends there.

May our God continue to bless you and watch over you, our beloved son!

Papa & Mama

Papa & Mama brought Louis and Kristen to visit the Lin's new & big apartment. Louis was so excited to explore around the place (and so did Papa & Mama!). Louis & Kristen received a lot of red pockets too!

Learning about CNY festival @ school

Today all students and their parents were invited to the school to celebrate the Chinese New Year together. All the classrooms were nicely decorated and there were games and refreshment related to the festival. Louis had fun hopping among different classrooms and learned about the festival. Learning through games is definitely fun!

Run Run Run

Louis loves to run. It gives him lots of joy. Papa and Mama enjoy embracing Louis when he sprints into their arms. It's almost like in a movie when 2 loved ones run towards each other, hug and spin in the air, full of passions and loves. :)

Late night talk with Papa

Time allocation is a challenge after having 2 kids. Every night after Papa put Louis to sleep, Papa will go into Kristen's room to have some father-daughter private time. Papa treasures the moments of cuddling, massaging, and talking to Kristen ... no matter how late night it is and how tired he is ... :)

Last day at My Gym

Louis has been going to the gym class for 6 months already. The teachers there are all lovely, and the class is practical and fun at the same time. Louis learned to take on new challenges and play in group. Louis has enjoyed the class a lot, and so did Papa & Mama.
Papa & Mama plans to bring Kristen to the gym when she's old enough!
