My dear baby Nana, today you turn 4!

Watching you grow from day one since you was a tiny newborn baby until now, you had now grown into a sensible little girl.

This year, you’re finally start schooling. You learn to socialise among your peers, learn to share, and to tolerance among each other. You learn new languages at school, craft, follow the rules and have fun with children same age as you. You became more and more independent. At home, you can do most of the things by yourself. If you are not tall enough to reach, you get a stool. You basically trying to solve your own problem before asking for help. Slowly, but surely.

Sometimes you are smart enough to even helped me up with my housework. When I bake, you pass me the mixer and spatula. When I make fruit juice, you pass me your plastic straw cup. When I accidentally wet the kitchen floor, you pass me my mop, without anyone to remind you or asked you for help. When me and daddy was away for two weeks, you even teach your popo (grandma) how to make your favourite Mac and cheese! Haha!

Even though most of the time you are still making a mess, but your offer on helping up is priceless to me. And the fact that you being more independent now makes me feel that you are no longer a baby.

This literally sums up what happen everyday at home. Daddy is always tired while mummy having crazy time dealing with the energizer bunny. Haha!

They play, laugh, fight, cry and grow up together.

But no matter how much you grow, you will always be my baby.

Being your mother is still the hardest task I ever done but I wouldn’t trade in the world for you. Four years now but we are still learning and growing together. 💪🏻 I can’t buy you the world but I will promise to provide you a beautiful childhood so you have something to reminisce when you grow older. And no matter what happen, we will have each other to lean on.

Laugh and be happy every single day! Stay fantastic!

1, 2, 3! Who turns 3?

My dear baby Nana,

Today you turns 3!

1233 years ago you came into our lives and touched our hearts. You are overly active, strong-willed, talkative and very mischevious. By the age of 3, you still fancy bus over soft cuddly toys. Your favorite food is eggs, all kind of noodles, ice cream, cheese and chocolate cakes. As much as I wish you grow bigger and taller, there are times I wish you are still a tiny baby that stick with me all the time. You talk so much now that sometimes I wish you are still a baby where you only giggle and laugh when I talked to you. You run so fast now that sometimes I am out of breath chasing after you. I want you to know that no matter how big you are, you are and always will be my baby.

On a good day, you will ‘request’ to help up (or mess up) with some household chores now. You helped up to hang the clothes, to mop the floor, to wash your own bowl after snack, to help washing the vegetables, to help baking cakes or cookies, to help to throw rubbish into the dustbin, and many other small little things in daily life when we asked you to do. Even if most of the time I will still need to clean up after you, but I want to let you know that mummy is proud of you.

I’m very grateful to be your main caretaker as I can be there to witness all your growth. Sometimes you are smart, sometimes you are cute, you like to sing when you are doing something; creating your very own lyrics, you like to dance and dance and dance and dance, you are a social butterfly that never seems to go out of energy. People always notice you when you are around, coz you are either very noisy talking about everything in a very sharp loud voice, or you are crying out loud over a small matter. Though sometimes I do feel embarrassed, I will keep reminding myself that it’s alright to be as loud as you want to be for now. Just go ahead and be what a 3-year-old should be.

By the time you turn two, you start testing my limit every single day. Sometimes you make me so mad that my fire is burning. But behind all the hurricane, occasionally you will tell me “I love you very much” and kiss me on my cheek. Some days soon you will not kiss me as often or hug me or even ask me to play with you; but no matter what happens, I’m always there for you like I did in the past 3 years.

You are my weakness and my strength. I love you with all my heart.
