I had a nice walk with E and Charlie Bear today, and oh boy that little bear has grown so big and cute. All that waving excitedly, (sometimes with both hands too), lovely adorable cackling smiles and happy little-baby-trying-to-talk noises. He’s such a delicious little muffin!
He loves to wave, smiled (almost) non stop at me for 4 miles and kept making all these cute lil noises. There is something about him that makes me feel so happy every time I spend time with him. He’s just so happy, peaceful and calm. He’s no longer a baby but a (really adorable) bubbling little toddler.
I think he’s so happy all the time because his parents are so much in love with each other and lovely him so dearly. They have such a happy and loving little family, that I think Charlie GLOWS with that love. He’s so trusting with his huge baby eyes and so happy to be bouncing and dishing out smiles to everyone! E is the kind of mother (very hands on, protective but not overly) I want to be, when I have a child myself. She’s so chill and relaxed with him, adores him completely but yet doesn’t stifle him by being too afraid to let him just be a kid.
Oh I’m also happy today for my successful bread making.

Spinach and ricotta cheese rolls that BURST!

Words of Affirmation
Acts of Service
I’m high on words of affirmation, so today I’m grateful that Kris tells me everyday that he loves me. Most days he also tells me how grateful he is: that I’m staying home, taking care of the house, cooking meals and doing whatever I do so (mostly fun things really, hee) that he can focus solely on work. I’m very lucky that he’s always very appreciative and doesn’t take me for granted. I think its very important in any relationship to affirm one another and not just assume that that person knows you’re grateful. I mean everybody likes to be praised and told thank you for their efforts! So remember to affirm your family members today!
Although one must note that, when a yummy breakfast of his choosing has been cooked there is a heightened excitement in his, ‘OH WOW, I LOVE MY WIFE, THAT LOOKS SO YUMMY.’
(FYI, looks so yummy refers to pancakes/omelettes, not the wife :P)
I went over to NJ (Jersey City for the first time on the PATH) yesterday. YAY to new adventures #cheap thrill
I’ve come to know a group of amazing ladies from all over the world, mostly new immigrants to America and also a few woman who have moved from other parts of the United States. Everybody has a different story to tell, diverse backgrounds, a wonderful and genuine group of ladies. I make friends based on my gut feel, (so far it has served me well) and I’m very comfortable with these group of people so thats wonderful 🙂

Today I’m grateful for my kind, loving, patient and very mature hubby! We might squabble and argue a lot about silly things (like marketing logos this morning) but I love him very much. Even when he’s wrong! Wahahahahaa! I need to learn patience from him, because he’s quite a handful! I cultivate his patience too, from time to time. 🙂
I love being his wife, because he has no expectations of my role as a housewife housewife. Which ironically makes me want to execute my oh-so-important-job with great fortitude! Its very interesting, (‘The American Way’ – as I call it) you leave the responsibility/ownership/decision making power to someone else, and he or she might inevitably rise about your expectations.
He called me CCO the other day, which I thought was Chief Cleanliness Officer, but turns out to be Chief Cuteness Officer. YAY! 100 brownie points to my BOT!
He’s very cute yesterday, this is him doing his taxes!
His posture is terrible, but I shall not nag. I shall let his mummy see this and let her nag instead!
Since I have not been talking about how much I love my nephew lately, here’s some pictures of him!
He’s growing like a champion! I love him and miss him very much, can’t wait to cuddle him. I suspect the next time I cuddle him, he’ll be walking and talking. Hopefully he would have learnt to say YIYI!
