A very lucky boy indeed.
A few days ago Hannah turned around and said to me a "Mummy hug" her arms outstretched and gave me a big hug.
On our last holiday by the beach Ayden showed some signs of readiness for some structured swimming classes. He wanted to dive, hold his breath underwater, float. So I thought, maybe its a good idea to enroll him in a swimming class.
So I contacted Erika Perez, Whom most of us have heard off by now. she started off with football classes for toddlers and pre-schoolers. Ayden had attended some of her football classes when he was younger. Now she has her swimming classes where she runs them at various locations. she used to do some at The Club at Bandar Utama. Nowadays, most of her swimming classes are at Tropicana Golf and Country Club.
The classes costs rm 500 for 10 lessons where you have to complete them within 12 weeks.
So far Ayden is doing extremely well in his classes. He's had 4 or 5 classes so far and he is able to blow bubbles, kick while holding a "noodle" to almost halfway through the pool, dive and pick up rings from the bottom of the pool and dive into the pool from the side of the pool.
If you have been following my blog, I like introducing activities to Ayden, and I felt swimming, besides it being a great useful skill, is just one of the many things I like him to get exposed to. And to note, I do not have any kind of high achieving expectations out of this. Just purely to have fun and to have varied experiences in life.
And after his classes are would have lunch atthe coffee house. And after that we would go home and take a nap.
Now isn't that a fun weekend?
I realise that i spend too much time sweating the small stuff. There are so many reasons for me to be extremely happy and they go unnoticed.
So am embarking on this 100 happy days project where i will post one photo everyday to reflect what makes me happy.
So here's my first one
The kids are parked at my parent's place. I've got one hour before Iftar. What else can I do!?
Have a luxurious foot massage of course!
Just as we were recovering from our missing flight which disappeared the day before my birthday, another one got shot down last night. This really goes down in aviation history. Never has there been an airline or country that has lost two commercial flights within 6 months. A friend's husband was on the first flight and he was also my husband's childhood friend. Gone too soon. He really was the nicest person I have meet and unimaginable talents in interior design and gardening. Imagine if he did that for a living instead.
My heartfelt condolences to the crew and passengers of this flight. May their family members have strength to pull through this trying times.
The twins turn 2 this September and Aaron is developing and learning very quickly.
He loves his picture books and will bring his favourite to me and we would go through the pictures together. He will ask me to point at a picture and he will say what it is. He is able to recognise most of the typical things around us that picture books normally have eg ball, car, flower, cat, duck etc...
Last night I drew some pictures of his usual favourites feom the picture book on the doodle board, and despite my appalling drawing skills, he is able to identify almost all of them!
Aaron shows a lot of keenness in learning and has patience to sit through an entire story book. While I'm reading he would excitedly point out pictures that he is familiar with.
My happy boy is such a joy, always smiling and always curious. Mummy pray you grow up to be a great person and with lots of love around you.
My first born is almost 4.5 years old now.
I remenisce the time when he was born. We were so excited. So happy. It took us so long to finally have him. zhad an awesome pregnancy. Being completely excited to see him. Excited to buy his things. Sadr an awesome feeling. I remember when we were at the hospital waiting to go in to deliver him. So so happy, such a good feeling.
Now my boy is a pre-schooler. So clingy to me. So very smart and speaks in complete and proper sentences.
I cherish those happy moments as nothing can ever out do that. Forever and ever, that way hands down the but moments of my life.
