5 foot Santa Rina Paid Us A Visit

It’s been a weekend of sweet gathering! And lots and lots of naps!

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 5.18.11 amAurora loves it when grandpa carries her over his shoulders. She falls asleep really fast this way. Plus it helps her with her burping, which is good because she tends to spit out a lot.

As usual, Da Yi came with lots and lots of gifts!!

Da Yi Zhang and uncle Meka bought us this! Apparently my sister sent them out for groceries one day and they came back with food alright, but they were all inedible! haha After they got them, there was an article about how these cutesies were called back because of safety reasons. But there’s no reason not to use them to teach Aurora all about vegetables and eating healthy! We’ll just keep them out of reach from her. 🙂Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 5.19.22 am

Godma Sim bought us gifts again! A tummy time mat, a puppy that teaches Aurora all things from numbers to alphabets (she really likes this) and an owl towel. I forgot to take a picture of it >.< Godma Sim is spoiling Aurora haha!

We had our belated Father’s day dinner when sis was over. Now there are 3 fathers at the table. Hubby, my dad, and my godpa. 🙂 What a dinner it was. I’d rather prefer a sit at home dinner with mom’s home cooked food. All the warmth and togetherness. Nothing beats this homely feeling. Of course dinners outside is also definitely a treat! haha I rather enjoyed the dinner hubby brought me to when I was pregnant. Thank you for always being so thoughtful. 🙂

We brought Aurora back to Ah Ma’s place too and of course we didn’t forget about our furkid! We are one big family afterall. 🙂 These days when we travel he sits in front with hubby while Aurora sits in the back with me in her car seat. She loves herself some car ride. She’d be crying all the way to the car but the moment hubby starts driving she falls instantly to sleep. haha I guess most kids like car rides. My sis and I did too when we were kids. Sometimes, mom says, it was the only way to put us to bed. haha How naughty we were.

It was nice having sis around, even if it were only for a few days. She stayed up watching football with dad, went shopping with mom (well, mom sent shopping with her, since she was the one doing all the buying haha), and for the first time, we ate at our dining table! Can you imagine, all the times she’s come to visit us, we never sat down at the dining table together for a meal? We were out every night! haha! This time though, we did. 🙂 It’s nice to have the family together again. 🙂

Baby update:

Doc says baby is overweight so we had to stretch her feeding time. I had no idea I was over feeding her! Poor baby, look at those chubby hands! Despite all her spitting, she still managed to put on so much weight! Doc said maybe she has a need to suck on something. She told us to try the pacifier as it is better than over feeding, even though she herself isn’t a fan of it. At the start Aurora really loves the pacifier. But one day she just topped liking it altogether. She’d just keep spitting it out. Thankfully hubby found another way to coax her.

I think she can smell the milk on me so it takes me very long to put her to sleep. But once hubby takes over, Aurora falls asleep very quickly! Perhaps she feels safe in those huge arms. 🙂


Lately the cold winter in Melbourne caused Issy bear to have a fever. I hope she gets well soon 😦 poor momma is so worried about you.

Also the pet dog of a good friend of mine has gotten womb infection and just went for surgery. Because of her age her chances of survival is very slim.

The pain of watching the ones you love suffer while you stand there, helpless, is just a torture. I pray she pulls through. After all, she has yet to have her meet up with our furkid. 🙂 Hang in there, Tifa.
