Haaappi 34 months!
To qinzhi, this is a month of shopping, lights, skirts n elmo.
It is also a month where qinzhi warmed up to daddy remarkably and became good friends, becoz of a smart investment tool, this below that costs $129
Playing with the cooking set became a sacred activity shared by qinzhi n daddy, n mummy would be devouring the lovely白菜汤／毛瓜汤 cooked by qinzhi 🙂
n with that, daddy ventured a bit further, after a night’s work,he would visit qinzhi in the morning n bring qinzhi to pasir ris park n bond
on another occasion, daddy brought qinzhi to the park again
n qinzhi had some real climbing to do~
we also made an effort to bring qinzhi outdoors, on sundays, we would walk to the alexandra park connector,then walk to zion road food centre, have breakfast then walk to great world city for qinzhi’s dose of xiaomaomi (soyabean)
one time, we discovered dew, so pretty!
n qinzhi had a first time encounter, playing with the dew on the waxed leaf
we always went to cold storage for some grocery shopping n for qinzhi to identify some fruits n…tomatoes
this day we went to the fresh food counter
one day,qinzhi was awarded a little cup of popcorn, it was the first time she tasted popcorn n she loved it
the next time we were there, we egged her on, we hoped it would b a little lesson of mustering enough courage to go fight for what she wanted.
December was truly the month of gai gai-ing n more gai gai
whether it sunned or rained, if qinzhi wanted, daddy would oblige even if it were storming
mummy would cringe to go out in the rain, but as long as qinzhi wanted, daddy would go along, this was how much qinzhi mattered to daddy
it was a good time to introduce to qinzhi xmas n related items, such as the xmas tree, we saw different variations of xmas trees at different places
n of course, there was the snowball
n christmas stocking
there was lots of shopping to do and qinzhi would run around the counters and play
n mummy saw a toy i fondly played with when i was young…fishing!
n qinzhi finally did climb on to a toy car to play
It was truly a sight when qinzhi who is v image conscious v shyly turned around in front of a mirror
Watching n smiling to herself in action
with outings come food, qinzhi was game to try everything,
apart from the usual cakes
at man fu yuan, she drank sharks cartillage soup n ate delicacies like fish maw! n she loved the jellied softness
a true connoisseur she is!
at home, qinzhi is v easy on food, she is v encouraging by eating whatever i cook for her,
n she absolutely loves seaweed, she eats from the container , with her fingers
of course, there was the usual, ice cream. 🙂
at Happy Train, qinzhi learned more skills, esp those with her fingers,
such as tearing n sticking
n this time,daddy accompanied qinzhi to class! it was a show of how they bonded!
i was so proud to c her hang ornaments on the little xmas tree, n we went to daiso to buy her more so she could practice at home
n she did
all by herself
she could also cut n weld a scissors
when i saw her trace numbers n strokes of chinese characters,my pride swelled
it was prouder than all the achievements i had in my life
over at kindermusik, it was already teacher diane li’s last lesson before she went to shanghai with her family, ah mei yiyi brought qinzhi n there,she got her certificate!
after class, qinzhi went shopping with yiyi n popo
at home, qinzhi did not have many toys, but she invented what she wanted to play
like stacking colored hair bands n blowing them!
such as attaching clothes pegs to her dress n turning in circles so the dress could twirl!
at home, qinzhi played with stickers to design a bag n …our clothes
it was also when vivienne visited n qinzhi had some fun, learning to play with her peers n sharing hugs
n when it was time to c elmo, qinzhi asked for vivienne to go watch with her. it seemed vivienne was her only fren….
on another day, daddy brought qinzhi to hi five ‘s performance in singapore, one which shocked amei yiyi so much when she saw the little ones sing n act to the cue of the performers
dec was also for skirts, qinzhi found her passion in them after we bought her a yellow dress fr gap
n since there was a sale, there was more nice dresses for qinzhi!
it was truly a sight to c the little darling walking around and choosing her clothes, saying no/yes to my picks
and this is her fave
i finally got qinzhi to agree to tie up her hair. she loved turning her head fr side to side n feeling the hair beating the wind.
for myself, it was a truly warm feeling, tying qinzhi’s hair.
i savored e-v-e-r-y moment tying my daughter’s hair. its amazing how she has grown from in my tummy to what she is now.
being mummy to qinzhi is the best that has happened to me in my life.
n there is no other than the deepest of gratitude to have her to thank for, in my life.
qinzhi is truly godsend.
this day, she listened to amei yiyi’s earphones bcoz it was playing Super Junior’s Simple Simple. Qinzhi could already utter those lyrics!
what’s more amazing is that qinzhi could sing some hokkien songs.
she could recognize the super junior cast n say, zhizhi likes kyu hyun, amei yiyi likes eunhyuk!
我：不是。mummy做工的时候也在想沁芝，想沁芝有没有吃饭？早餐吃什么？有没有nngg nngg？有没有叫婆婆？有没有pong pong？⋯⋯⋯⋯
沁芝：有没有玩smack smack（她模仿high five里打网球的样子）
我：有没有吃yoghurt？有没有看今天几号⋯⋯⋯⋯有没有or pi sai
她知道爸爸不在家，就是去工作，然后说：“我想，mummy不要做工，和沁芝在pasir ris and redhill”
然后唱：“off we go!”
沁芝最近喜欢squeal in delight,一点点小事就高声squeal ，好可爱！
看到selly从香港买回来的minnie mouse水壶和hello kitty发夹，她自动说：“thank u，selly姐姐。”
she is simply lovely.
so lovely i wish i could write down all these lovely moments.
but more so, i thought i was truly blessed to have been part of the experience of listening n being with qinzhi, n to b enthralled n enlightened by this pure soul.
dearie, happi 34 months.
and may u b well n happy, may u inspire n light up lives all around u.
