Poor Ee Shuen's thumb is swollen

Last night at about 9pm, Baby Ee Shuen pointed to the bed room, indicating she wanted to go to sleep, such a good girl, so daddy prepared her milk, mummy changed her into pyjamas and diapers.

after she finished her milk, we put her into her baby cot, but somehow after a while she keep getting up. we thought she wanted a little hug before sleeping, so we pick her up and try hugging her to sleep, however she just couldn't fall asleep. Daddy noticed one thing very strange, she wasn't sucking her thumb but her mouth was alway moving, like she is muching or sucking something. (on a side note, we have never given her pacifier, it has always been the thumb). Observing her a little more, we noticed whenever she puts her left thumb into her mouth, she will quickly take it out. Looks like she has sucked her thumb till its all red and a little swollen, it is now painful. Poor Ee Shuen........

We tried to give her a pacifier, but apparently this baby doesn't know how to suck the pacifier anymore. She just play with it.

In the end ah mah and ah kong took her into their room, let her roll around until about 11pm++, when she was too tired and she just fall asleep without sucking her thumb. One other thing, she will throw her lion pillow away, her thumb sucking pillow :).

climb up the staircase

What Ee Shuen did last Thursday in Gong gong & Popo's house?
She climbed up the staircase for 6-7 times in a day.

She reached 1st floor on her own. When she's climbing up, somebody have to follow her at the back.
That night, she slept through the whole night till the next morning 7am. I think she's too tired climbing up the staricase during daytime!

Sayang, sayang...

Aunty Machere presented this soft toy to Ee Shuen last week. We only unwrapped the present during christmas eve.
Just now, Mummy asked her to "sayang" the little dog. She picked up the dog and sayang the dog. She's a big girl now!

Merry Christmas..... Happy Birthday to Baby Jesus!!

Merry Christmas.... and God bless From us....

After dinner we have a little dance party......

The children xchanging and opening their christmas gifts after the long dinner, mini carolling with Michael Wong playing the guitar and dancing. Many many gifts from family and relatives :). Christine got 2 blanket, 2 dress and a doll this year.

AZ gathering & Yiyi 's birthday

Last Thursday, we went back Ipoh as there's long holiday. ( 20th Dec, Thursday was Hari Raya Haji & 25th is Christmas ). Thursday night, we went to aunty Machere's house for AZ ( ex Ipoh & current Ipoh staff ) gathering, with some of Machere's friends also. As usual, " pertanian" session all the night for all the guys.

As "Tang yuan" festival was on 22nd Dec ( Saturday ), Popo prepared the praying session one day earlier so that we can eat the " tang yuan" before back to Penang.

This time, Mummy bought a different cake for Su Wei aunty. Mummy bought it from Left Shore Cafe. It's a strawberry cheese with sponge cake. Very tasty, not too sweet.

While waiting for cake cutting, Yiyi and Popo show Ee Shuen how to make a triangle their fingers. Ee Shuen is trying to figure out how to do it!

The next moment, she showed the same thing like what Yiyi & Popo did!

Finally, we took our usual family photo! Happy Birthday, Yiyi! May all your birthday wishes come through!

Being a Catholic.......

if you are a reader and subscriber of malaysiakini, you will come across this article. in summary,

The word ‘Allah’ can only be used in the context of Islam and not any other religion, said Deputy Internal Security Minister Johari Baharum.

Asked why a new condition will be imposed on Catholic weekly newspaper Herald when its annual publishing permit is next renewed, the deputy minister said this is to prevent confusion.

“Only Muslims can use ‘Allah’. It’s a Muslim word, you see. It’s from (the Arabic (language). We cannot let other religions use it because it will confuse people,” he said when contacted today.

I wonder if Mr Johari is going to get wikepedia and britannica re-written. I suggest Mr. Johari to be a more glocal Malaysian that is bringing his case to the world, rather than just talking about it in Malaysia.

You can also read the meaning of it at newadvent site.

At 11 months

Ee Shuen has start to recognise things in the book, like butterfly, bird, pig, apple fish, bicycle.

When we laughed, Ee Shuen also follow, " Ha ha! "

She'll crawl to the door, and waved to Mummy, sometimes like saying " Bye!"

She loves to go to the playground.

She will stand without any support sometimes.

adding on (by daddy on 25th of December)

She no longer poo poo into her diapers. She will only do her big one in the red 'tam pui' (hokkien), while reading her books. And while she is doing it she will ask daddy to get another book if she has finished the one she is reading.

Sometime after she wakes up from her afternoon nap, we will find her diapers all dry, and she will do her small one in tam pui when we asked her to. We hope she will be diapers free soon. Diapers are not cheap anyway, costing ~rm1 each, mamy poko XL

Christine Ong's Baptism..... Finally

On 9th of December 2007, after much delay, we have finally got Ee Shuen baptist, she is now officially a Christian, Christine Ong Ee Shuen.

It was a long road to baptism, first of all we had to find a date where everyone is free. Mommy and daddy is always busy, there is always something coming up on the baptism saturday, then we have find a date where po po and e e from ipoh could come and witness Ee Shuen's baptism and finally of course we have a hard time looking for a Christian name for ee shuen, even with baby z's daddy Christian name book, we just could find one that we like. After much time spent thinking and looking we finally settle down with Christine, and we like the meaning of the name as well, Christ's follower :).

After days, weeks and months of looking for a suitable day, we finally found a date where everyone could make it, that is Dec 9th at Church of the Holy Name of Jesus at balik pulau.

Father Henry praying over Christine, looks like Christine is more interested is in the book Father Henry is holding. Christine's God Mother on the left....

Christine Ong.... I baptist you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Everyone in white.......

Family photo after the ceremony ended, looks like the children found something interesting on the right.....

popular words

These two days, Ee Shuen always says," Pa pa", " Ma " ( for Ah Mah, but sometimes when she call for mummy she also say this ), " Ma ma" ( for Mummy ). When Mummy response her back, she'll repeated the same word again and again and she'll laugh at the same time! ( maybe she's thinking how come Mummy is so long winded ).
She will also come to you and kiss you now!
