Hospital update

Grace is still in the hospital.....with daddy to accompany her for the night....3rd night now and she'd become used to me leaving for the night and visiting her again in the morning with her favourite breakfast....

On the first night (Friday)....she cried badly when I wanna leave...makes my heart ache so much.....then later during midnight....she cried again, because she was sleeping soundly when the nurse woke her up for the gas inhaling session....other than that....she'd been very good and brave...

Her fever is still on and off, and this afternoon she still had a slight fever....I'm hopeful that the doctor will allow her to be discharged tomorrow afternoon....I really miss her....

Miss Elise is still going healthy...and I pray that she will remain healthy....but she's a little tired with all the trips to the hospital...she enjoyed the playground time there though....

Here's some photos of my brave little girl during her gas inhaling session and antibiotic injection session...(err....don't get shocked...it was just a simple session of less than 5 minutes...)





And here's both girls enjoying Hi-5 in the hospital room...

Catching up....

Phew....was really busy recently..and I've not blogged for like 2 weeks?!? Well, let's catch up with what the girls had been doing for the past 2 weeks or so....

On Elise's 1-year-old check up, we noted that Elise was not gaining enough weight...she's like 6.36kg only...for her height, she should be at least 7kg..and so doctor suggested that we start formula on her....actually I've got the same plan too and so, on the same day I bought a bottle and a tin of Pediasure (recommended by doctor)....so, the next morning, both girls had their milk time....(to date, Elise is still not able to finish her trial 60ml milk..not because she hates it, she kinda like it but she's too active and busybody to finish that 60ml of milk...sigh)


We did get some time to visit the playground as a family...

Grace and I had some crafting time...
...Here's what we made...(it's gonna be in some one's new room)
The girls did some "swimming" on our balcony...

and since they love it so much, I bring them real swimming..

Then mommy and daddy celebrated their 9th Wedding Anniversary with a bouquet of flower...

Elise got this real cool car from our dear church brothers and sisters for her first birthday and the sisters had a blast fighting for it...hehehee

Look at the "This is my car"...eyes...


Then we got the keys to our new home. Grace and Elise were super excited with their room.....and mommy is gonna be extra busy with renovation and moving (later)...
Then on Friday (yesterday) evening, Grace got admitted to the hospital for having 4 days of high fever....and she's now at the hospital with daddy...pity her....but look who's more excited about the hospital bed...

A certain someone is 1 today!!!!

Here's the birthday girl....with her presents....


Well...we celebrated Elise's birthday a little earlier as Grandpa and Grandma will be making their way to the United States on the 6th and they have lots of things to pack...and Sunday is just a better day to have a party....

We had a simple birthday party for her with family and close friends from church...the adults had great time with the food, while the little ones, including the birthday girl, had fun with toys in our room.....

The crafty mummy made a banner out of patterned papers from Studio Calico June's kit and some alphabets...love the effect...

Enough of words....here's the photos....

Banner that mummy made....
Pretty birthday cake...front and back

The foodThe kids enjoying their playtime...
The blur birthday girl
Birthday girl terrified by the candle and guests singing her birthday song...
Of course her big sister needs to blow the candle for her...
At least she's not afraid of cutting the cake
