Finger counting

Leng Leng,
.
You've learned finger counting in school and you can count up to 5 with fingers now. Everyday, you'll practice it. It's good cause sometimes your brain and fingers do not coordinating so well, you need help from other hand to show the correct finger sign.
.
This is 'one'.
.
.
'TWO'
.
.
'THREE'
.
.
'FOUR'
.
.
'FIVE'
.
.
Both hands up, sign to go toilet in school.
.
.
This is when your brain and finger doesnt coordinates so well :)

Genting Highland again

Cayden boy and Leng Leng,
.
We were at Genting Highland again, this time is to celebrate grandpa's birthday there. As usual, check in to the room first.
.
Monkey 1 who pretend busy to chat over the phone.
.
.
Monkey No.2 who pretend hardworking to do writing
.
.
Put you into the baby cot is the most scariest thing to you.
.
.
Nevermind, JieJie will take care of you and feed you vitagen eventhough you cant walk around.
.
.
We headed for some durian @ Genting in the cold breezy air. You both did not enjoy durian so much, but able to entertained yourselves and find some fun.
,.
.
Hmm...look at you, hide under the table, just because you don want to let me snap photo....you squat, mummy can squat too :p
,
.
Hahahahahaha...Gotcha!!!!
.
.
Basically, you dont like to be 'quarantine', you prefer to walk around freely, touch everything you wish to touch.
.
.
Instead, Jie Jie prefer to sit on stroller more than you...
.
.
Ya, this is so much better....Exploring around.
.
.
But you have to sit on stroller, too many things distract your attentions, a 5 minutes walk could take up to 1 hour if let you walk freely.
.
.
It's dinner time, the hungry monkeys are waiting for the food to be served. While waiting, lets have some play time...
.
.
After the dinner, we headed back to hotel as it's time to bed for that 2 monkeys.
.
******************************************************
.
* weather is not as cold as the last visit.
** we didnt got upgraded to Maxims room like what grandpa got for last year, so we didnt manage to see the motion-censor dustbin and also the fruits served every 2-3 hours :(

Reading time

.
Dont get bluff from this photo, you prefer flipping book than reading a book. Each time, only read for 1-2 sentences, you start to look around, play with your clothes, play with your fingers, knock the table, do all sort of things except concentrating on your book.
.
.
Getting you to VY is like something...uhhh....something that you dont know what will happen next. Sometimes, you will just go in without tears, but most of the time, you'll refuse to go in and want me to sit side by side.
.
.
You're getting smarter, you told me yesterday when we were on the way to VY, you said : mummy dont go shh shh ya, okie? Mummy dont go parking ya, okie? Mummy go in with Leng Leng ya, okie?? Just to make sure I wouldnt slip away for that 1 hour.
.
,.
I didnt managed to slip away for the 1 hour. You hold my hand for the whole reading session, yet, you didnt pay attention and read well, making mummy crazy~~~
.
.
Duck

This is Duck.
Duck can swim.
Duck can run.
Duck can run up like this.
Duck can run down like this.
.
You took half an hour to finish the above. *sweat*
.
.
PS. Dont get bluff by your angel smiley faces too...when u become devil, can really drive mummy up to the wall :(

Risk of Down Syndrome

It's the worst news I've ever received in my life. I did a triple test when I was in 15 weeks pregnant. The result wasnt good, stating I'm having increased risk of down syndrome, risk : 1 in 123, which the normal range should greater than 1 in 250. When my gnae showed me about this report, my mind is blank. I never ever expect this could happen on me? why me? what had happend? How it happens? What should I do?
.

Doctor suggested me to proceed with the amniotic fluid test which carry certain risk of miscarriage. And this triple test report accuracy rate is only 60%+, we are in deep dilemma, seriously. We need second opinion. So we headed to PCMC for another consultation, bringing the report with us, the doctor was also saying the only way to get a accurate diagnostic is thru amniotic fluid test. Aiks....However, the person in charge was in holiday and will not be back so soon. My condition's not allowing us to further delay. So, we were refered to UMSC.

.

I was at UMSC for my first consultation on 12 August 2009, which i'm 16 weeks pregnant. The doctor I was referred to was Prof PC Tan. He explained in details to me, from mathematic perspective and also from medical perspective. His advice to us at that moment was to go for a detail 4D scan, he was confident that if there is any abnormalities, it should be able to detect thru 4D scan. We decided to go for it. The details scan was very detail, we were showed more than 100 screen, different part of body of the baby, and the doctor explained in very detail way too. The conclusion was no adnormalities seen on ultrasound, risk probably halved to 1:246. Amnio carries 1:200 miscarriage risk. As the parent, we need to decide what we should do for the next.

.

We came for 2nd details scan when I was 20 weeks pregnant, on 05 September 2009. It's as detail as the first one. And doctor confirmed that I'm having a XY (baby boy). Conclusion was the same, no abnormality detected, but couldnt exclude the DS risk by US, risk is halved to 1: 246. As a very profesional doctor, he didnt make any decision for us, he gave us all the possibilities and suggestions. After a very careful consideration, we chose to continue with the pregnancy without going thru any amniotic fluid test, believe me, it's not an easy decision yet we gave in a very very deep thought. 1: 246 vs 1:200, no way.
.

My second half of pregnancy was very pleasant, the DS risk no longer bothering us after we've made up our mind. After 4 months+, he is here, my healthy and strong boy. Now, he's turning 1. As what we promised to ourselves, we brought something to Prof PC Tan at UMSC as a gesture of thankful. Without him, a very good doctor, i think my destiny will change, my big boy's destiny could be different too.
.


.
We should learn to cherish and appreciate what we are having, and should not take anything for granted. Life is like that, health is like that, happiness is like that. If given me a choice again, I want nobody but my naughty Cayden boy as my son, eventhough naughty but healthy boy.

Paiseh la...Mr and Miss next table, spoilt your romantic dating with your loved one :)

It's Valentine's day

.
My dear hubby,
.
As the time goes by, I stop and think about all the memories we've made, good times, bad times, good tears, bad tears, love between us keep growing. When I think of all that has happened and how it has made me happy, this is too good to be true. You are the blessing from above, one I do not want to take for granted. I thank you for all the things you've done for me and the kids. Not only are you a wonderful hubby, you're a loving father, provider and caregiver. You give so freely to all those you know in such a loving way. I love you, more than words, more than life. I'm forever grateful for your love and proud to be your wife.
..
Love always,
Lao Po

Botak boy

Cayden boy has never trimmed his hair since birth. This is the length @ 13 months, messy and unorganized.
.
.
Ready for a hair cut.
,
.
Crying badly, afraid of the shaver or perhaps cried for his beloved hair which has been on his top for the last 1 year.
..
.
Botak in progress....
.
.
DONE!!! Neat and handsome!!! :)
.
