Here’s a recap:
Feburary – Carter did his first photoshoot with Mother & Baby magazine, and I did an interview (as a tech mum) with the same magazine. We had a very quiet Chinese New Year. We celebrated Hunter’s friend Mia’s 2nd birthday!
March – It was Chris’ birthday! Hunter did his magazine photoshoot and also gave us a huge scare this month when he got gastroenteritis. We also did a family photoshoot outdoors, so we ended up with zero smiling shots and 100% scowly faced shots, d’oh!
August – At exactly 2.5 years old, Hunter is potty trained. HUGE milestone for us! Hunter celebrated his first Teachers Day. And Chris and I went on our very first full-day date together since we’ve had 2 kids. We went nuts and did a full-blown DIY Superhero theme for Carter’s 1st birthday party! Carter started walking unassisted 🙂
October – My parents got Chris and I a staycation at the Movenpick hotel in Sentosa for my birthday, as well as a Bottega Veneta bag! Chris and I had a romantic dinner to celebrate, and I had my birthday dinner with friends. We brought the kids to see the Fire Station, the Singapore Flyer, as well as the Science Centre. I smashed my car 🙁 Brunch With My Baby Singapore was launched!
It’s been a very blessed year for myself and my family. I’ve delighted in watching my two babies grown into toddlers, and have both loved and hated being a SAHM. We’ve had so much fun on our playdates, and have been brunching ourselves broke on a daily basis. Many new friendships were formed. Many opportunities opened for me.
As we leap into 2014, I just want to wish you all a fab year ahead, with loads of laughter and love. May we always hold our family and parents close in our hearts, find comfort and laughs with our spouses/partners, and treasure our true friendships.
It’s been blimmin’ fabulous.
