Creativity in a purpose driven life

Is this the one to post?

Trying again if this works

His first ride

Finally we found the bicycle for Seth. He has been hopping onto bikes after bikes but none to our liking in terms of design, suitability and price. Ed bought the bicycle yesterday and it brings big smile to Seth and he is so excited about it. He was so tired last night after we got home from my in-laws. Nonetheless, he was all perky when he sees his new "girlfriend". Gonna bring him to the park soon for some rides.

She can stand

It's a big milestone for Grace. I was folding the clothes and she's ok the floor playing and then she goes all hands free and tried to stand up without supporting. She did it!! I am so happy! Cheering her all the way. She was so excited that she kept on doing the standing up by herself. It's such a memorable moment.

It probably is…..

I never seems to get out of this situation. Overtiredness, lethargic, forgetfulness, impulsive and worry wart. It never came across my mind till I read about the near symptoms of this illness by her. I realize that adults can get into such an illness and it's really amazing how we struggle to keep ourselves sane in this crazy world. Maybe I think too much about it but whatever is shared on Corinne's blog about this illness, I can identify with them. So many parts of it are what I am today. Will I lose it all? It's scary enough to think about it. Time and time again, I never seems to be accomplishing much at work and always such a last minute sort of person with no sense of urgency anymore. I am branding myself, irresponsible, time clueless POS. =( It's Him who is holding on to me and not letting me slip myself away. I feel that without His presence, Him putting sisters in Christ and a wonderful family around me, I would have been in an asylum already. This is all it takes to keep my life from not falling apart. Thank you , Lord for your saving Grace. No matter how much trials in life I have faced and going to face, let me constantly focus on You and your Mercy & Grace.

Just another shot

She's such a darling and I love her sooooo much. Our strong and pretty princess.

September is here

Time past so fast that we never take notice of the things we have accomplished during this fast pace life. This month with happenings, like Grace's first birthday, her hernia surgery, Jesse's family visit to SG. very eventful and precious moments shared.

Our Sentosa Trip Photos and update

These are some of the photos taken when we were on vacation at Sentosa. It was quite a fun time for both Seth and Grace. Though we didn't manage to get both of them in the pool, but we manage to get them into the bath-tub and swim together. 🙂

Nothing like spending quality time with your kid.
Learning to play the Rubik's Cube


Grace's Cheeky Look.

First for Grace in her Swimsuit. Getting a bit small to fit on her though. hahahaha!

Will post more of the trip photos to my Flickr account.

I need to be really discipline to update the milestones of the kids. Otherwise they will surely be forgotten when the time passes by.

Grace started to wave bye-bye when she's almost 8 months. The adorable part of it is, when she waves, she will then clap her hands, as if praising herself that she waves bye-bye.
Indeed when you have repetition actions, words with your babies, they will learn really fast.
She started off learning how to clap her hands when I was singing to her, clap, clap clap your hands when we are traveling in the car. That was when she's 7 months old and after a few session, she grasped the action and I am amazed she managed to clap without missing the hands.
Grace begins to call ma-ma when she's about 7 months old too. She's one fierce gal when she cries. Seeing all
her tears rolling, screaming and also quivering lower lips, really breaks the heart. Geez,

Seth, the singer at home. Day in and out, he sings and talks and talks. Now, he is able to also play with his animals and do imaginary talk with them. Sometimes, it's so comical to see him talk to his animals in an adult manner.
I've started to do painting with him. He enjoys the session and hope that he'll pick up the interest and come to love to draw. Though he is still unable to really write well, he loves to do scribbling here and there. His pincher grip is good and able to hold the pencil quite well. I always enjoy seeing him in full concentration when he writes on the paper.

Ok, time to get ready, A long day at work. 🙁 This week onwards there will be loads of things to be settled.I am so looking forward to June. 🙂

Medical House

filled the kitchen top. Various medication to feed Seth and Grace. Sometimes, we can get a bit confuse and in a fluster, we nearly feed the wrong medication to the kids. HIAZ! That's really bad.

Grace have been having the coughs almost every time she's asleep. I am so concern about her not having enough rest. Just last night, I was on guard waiting for her to wake up from the cough and give her a session of nebulizer. But then she slept till 4am, I did not dare to wake her seeing that sleep is so precious for her. When she cried herself from her sleep, her temperature was 38.8 deg C! Gosh! Immediately, I fed her iBrufen to bring down her temperature. Poor gal.

Seth's getting ok. He is just having the phlegmy cough and also the phlegm that flowed back to his ear that needing him to take antibiotics to prevent any infections.

Tomorrow will be work day and gonna be busy as our helper will be flying in from Philippines, so will pick her up from the airport tomorrow evening.
So many things will change. Having a helper is always a very last resort of ours but guess we have to get one for mom regardless the discomfort of having to stay with a stranger, having another liability to take care of.

Alrighty, better sleep now as tomorrow will be work day. I can imagine who will chase after me. My mail box is at 356 counts of unread emails since Friday! Crazy!


It has always been on my mind to create a photobook for both Seth & Grace. I was even more inspired by Ali's, Brenda's, Danielle's.

So I went googled around and found these offers, both locally in SG and overseas. Enjoy and have your memories captured into timeless treasure in these photobooks. 🙂
