rooster 吱吱喳喳

Wishing all my friends and family the year of Rooster is filled with good health, prosperity and happiness.



my bag

I couldn't resist a black and white version of the last post as I am a bit obsessed with it at the moment. Marceau was so chuffed with his new bag that he kept saying 'My bag" and refused to let go of it for rest of the afternoon.


successful day

This young man did very well on his first day of school at the start of this year. There were no tears when we said goodbye and he already stole the hearts of the teachers in the few hours he was there.

milou's first day

This was taken a week before Milou turned two and she was all dressed and ready for school for the very first time. 



Both were dressed and ready for school for the first day of this term. Marceau is very lucky to have big sister there for him. Milou had been saying that she would hug lil brother when he missed mummy. 



Two little gentle giants at play. 


This little guy is two and he has never had a haircut like his big sister. My husband has been nagging to get it cut. Look at those curls, I just don't have the heart to do it!



Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all for these two! 



I love listening to their little chats. Marceau may only have limited vocabulary now but they have the special sibling connections and always have a good giggle from their conversations. The topic of discussion of this picture was about Milou's turning four and there would be a lot of balloons for her party.


Poor lil Marceau, he trusted us and had no idea what was coming his way.


milou is four

twinkle, twinkle little star
do you know how loved you are

Happy fourth birthday, 寶貝!xo


third birthday

It's worth all the effort to bake just to see that smile on her face.

second birthday

Milou learnt to cheer hip hip hooray after the birthday song at her second birthday. This girl loves parties!


first birthday

My baby girl had a blast at her first birthday party.

It finally sunk in that I was a mummy when my kisses and hugs had magical healing powers.


eat . sleep. snuggle

eat . sleep . snuggle

That was pretty much on repeat for the first six months. 

first breath

The memory of this picture is still very vivid even though it was taken nearly four years ago. Milou was only a few hours old and she had just eaten her dinner. They both looked so content and I am glad this special moment was recorded so it will never be forgotten. 

Baby girl, your first breath took ours away!


count down

Milou has been waiting for her fourth birthday for a very long time now and we have been reminded daily that her birthday is on the fifteen ever since the first day of January. Seven more sleeps...


papa's love

Absolutely, positively, unmistakably smitten with his children



A ready made friend for life


Some serenity on Christmas morning. Moments like this make me forget about the chaos.

morning read

These two bookworms were busy with their books on Christmas morning and totally forgot about their presents by the Christmas tree that they had been dying to rip open the wrapping.

Daddy's little angel forever more


new year

I read somewhere that the new year means nothing if you are still in love with your comfort zone. Here's what I have come up with so far:

be patient
arrive 10 minutes early
forgive more easily
visit a new place
don't sweat the small stuff
be less negative
make time for my hobby

There are many exciting things ahead so let's have a super wild and awesome 2017! xo
