Mama wants to record what KK can do or say since she is getting forgetful...

People she names: mama, baba, kun kun, por por, yee yee, Elken (her friend at church), cheung (Jaci, this is new, when i showed her B and Jaci's pic couple nights ago), je je, gor gor, and dei dei (ian), ar yee (her babysitter), and her friends at daycare.

She can say her favorite food: nanana (banana), su su (water), bao bao (bread), si si (cheese), apple, nai nai (milk), ben ben (cookie), tze (grapes), si gua (watermelon from violet's toy), etc.
And when she sees a birthday cake, she says "to you", oh and "Yummy"

KK opens her jaw

We: lion
KK: wow (roars)

We: ching wa (frog)
KK: rippit

We: thank you Jesus (at the end of prayer)
KK: men (Amen)

Singing: KK always surprises me of how much songs she actually knows. She can fill in the words when I stop singing, usually the last words of the phrase. Some of the songs she knows:
Pat a cake
Hickery dickery dock
Twinkle twinkle little star
Ants go marching one by one
Litte Indian boy
Row row row your boat
Jesus loves me
Rejoice in the Lord
From Sound of Music (so long farewell; do ri mi)
Chinese songs (a dog song, a piggy song, a fishy song, rabbit and turtle, etc.)

KK loves to read and a lot times she speaks her own language, like on the phone or while she reads.

Ian - 5 months

3/6 at his 4 month well visit

13lb13oz (weight)

24in (length)

16in (head circumference)

Ian is cooing, squealing, laughing out loud. He is no longer fuzzy at 9pm like he used to every night for 2 hrs when he was 2-3 months old, which definitely makes baba very happy.

Thank God that Ian is another happy baby.

Now Ian is 5.5 months. He knows how to roll over, grab toys, and loves to examine his hands and fingers, and looking at the mirror. Mama thinks he is great the he can fall asleep on his own, but Baba still loves to carry him until he falls asleep.

Our stay at Children's Hospital in Central California

Our trip to Fresno 3/28-30
3/28 - Great grandma's funeral. We drove up to Fresno early in the morning. Mama was comforted to see all her family and relatives and to remember por por together.

3/28 - 3/30 Mama and Baba stayed with KK at the hospital
We noticed KK's left eyelid was a little pink and swollen on our ride to Fresno, but it just got worse after the service, so we took her to ER in the afternoon. KK was admitted for antiobiotics with IVs right the way (well, after 5 hrs at ER, which is relatively short). It was 11pm when we finally got to our room. Baba and Mama stayed with KK in the hospital while Ian stayed with grandma and grandpa at 2 Kou Kun's house. We're so fortunate that KK got immediate treatment, Ian was well taken care of, and the hospital is only 10 mins away.

We stayed there for 2 nights and it was a precious experience for all of us. KK remained bubbly except when the nurse refilled her antibiotics every 8 hrs. Baba played with KK at the play room every day while Mama went to see Ian. We also took KK on wagon rides all over the hospital and she would smile and greet people passing by. Meanwhile Ian was very cooperative and entertaining to all the great uncles and aunts. We feel so blessed with this unexpected experience. And thanks the staff at the hospital for their professional and pleasant service.

Great grandma

Our great grandma passed away 3/24... we all miss her. Mama, yee yee's and all the uncles and aunties remember great grandma as a loving, witty, cute, happy lady, devoted her life to her family, she will always be remembered. Ian doesn't have the privilege to meet great grandma but we'll tell him all about her.

My brother Ian was born November 8, 6lb, 18in. Ian was so anxious to come to the world that Mama delivered him within 2 hours of being admitted to the hospital. I was very good with grandma and grandpa at home. Yee yee, yee cheung, auntie violet and uncle Jackie surprised us with another short visit just to see baby ian and us again, that was so nice!

I love to see and touch Ian, he has such big eyes and mouth!

My 1st Birthday

My b-day celebration started off with a car ride. Baba, mama, and Helen yee yee took me to the Sea World in San Diego. We had a fun day and I was very excited to see all the fishes, dolphins, sea lions, penguins, etc. In the evening, we had dinner with kun kun, por por, and uncle Jackson's family, followed by cake cutting at home.

July 2008

At her 9 month well visit, KK weighs 17lb9oz, 28in tall. KK has picked up quite a lot of skills these couple months: sit up really well, push up to sit, pull up to stand, clap, wave, picking up food with her fingers, etc. She is learning to crawl and stand too.

We had a very nice July 4th with family, including yee yee, yee cheung, tai por from SF. Even though KK was a little sick, she was still very playful. We had our 1st BBQ at our backyard, and KK watched the fireworks for the first time.

KK is getting more and more funny... watch her.

Dance? (taken in May 08, 7 months)

Road Trip to SF

June 2008

We went on a road trip (my first one) to San Jose/San Francisco a couple weeks ago. I had a great time, visiting baba's high school in Pebble Beach, meeting a lot of friends and family, and attending a wedding. Though it was a very exhausting trip, I was very good with the long car ride, spent most of the time sleeping and playing.

See Trip Pictures

This is how i fall asleep in the car...

I love tags these days...
