Time flies.. Steffi is 35 months old and going to be 3 years old next month! She is still going to Tots House in the morning and I am still working. πŸ™‚

Some updates about Steffi:-

She is now more “girlie” than ever. Loves to wear dress, loves to put on bracelets and necklaces (Beads type. Some are DIY by me or given by friends) and yes, loves manicure and pedicure too! But then, we don’t allow her to put nail polish on her nails so she has to pretend! She loves to play pretend games, like pretending that she is mama or princess or her favorite “aeroplane che che”.

She is also “toilet trained” for night time too which we are very pleased about. But then, sometimes she would still want to be like baby and wear pampers to sleep. She talks a lot and according to the teachers at school, she is the most talkative in class. πŸ™‚

She has also grown much bigger physically; 97cm and 13.5kg now. Some of her recent pics..

This is her first Christmas tree. She helped to decorate it. πŸ™‚

(see her ‘long pants’.. this is one ofΒ her baby pants. She has grown vertically but not horizontally… )

Saw the “My little princess” advertisement on the Disneyland website before we went to Hong Kong and decided that I would want to let Steffi be a little princess. I asked Steffi if she would like to be a little princess and her reply was a “Yes!”. Here are my little princess’ photos! πŸ™‚

waiting… waiting… waiting… we were there at 845am and the store opens at 9..

making up…

My little Princess! πŸ™‚

We went to Bintan for a short weekend getaway last week. We stayed at Bintan Lagoon Resort and we loved the place! The room is very clean and cosy. Steffi loved it too and said that she wanted to stay there for a few more nights and even wanted to bring the whole family there.

Here are some of the pics that we took. πŸ™‚

Yup, it’s been a long long while since I last posted. Yes, we went Hong Kong in between these 2 posts. We went on 21 Apr and came back on 26 Apr. This is the first time I brought Steffi overseas alone (to and fro). The last time was bringing her back from Shanghai. Thank God, journey was easy. Steffi slept for about 1 hour or so on both flights and she was very excited because she just loves looking at “Aeroplane Jie Jie” – Air Stewardess! and she said she’s a “Baby Aeroplane Jie Jie”. When I asked her why she loves looking at them, she simply says “because I like them! they are pretty!” haha.. πŸ˜›

We were there from Wednesday till Monday. I brought Steffi out on Thursday and Friday alone as Tommy had to work on weekdays. It was challenging but fun. We went Ocean Park on Thursday and Causeway bay shopping on Fri. Steffi enjoyed Ocean Park very much especially the dolphin show, the jellyfish display and the big aquarium. No photos on these 2 days cause I didn’t bring the camera out (no confidence that I can handle a toddler, a bag with her stuff and a pram.. )

But did take a picture of the dolphin balloon that I bought for her at Ocean Park. It’s a pity that we didn’t manage to bring the balloon back cause it wasn’t deflated by the time tommy left on 8 May..

Here are some pics to share..

See video! Her school has been making them (yes, the 2 and 3 years old) “sing” the national anthem and “recite” the pledge every morning. And they even get to hear the chinese version of the pledge twice weekly. hee.. start from young, i guess.. πŸ™‚

* been trying to get her to sing the national anthem but she refused to cooperate.. so stay tune for her version of the national anthem! πŸ™‚

This post is a little outdated.. Steffi’s birthday is on 15 Feb and this year’s 15 feb is 初二.Β Here are some pics of her on her birthday with her cake and present.Β Didn’t manage to fulfill her wish of a green cake though. Β πŸ™‚
