Where's Skyler?

Our little angel baby has turned into a screaming, whining, tantrum-throwing little 'monster' almost overnight. Esmond and I woke up one morning and wondered, "where did our Skyler go?"

Our once, sociable and easy-going baby is now a still sociable, but more clingy and fussy toddler. She decided 2 weeks ago that she didn't want to eat anything except soup and biscuits. And, NOTHING could make her eat what she didn't want to eat - she shakes head and says "No need!". Sigh.

I've now become Mrs "NO" with my daily vocabulary comprising of the following:
"Stop it!"
"Take your hands away!"
"Don't touch!"
"Pick it up!"
"Put it back. Now!"
"If you do it again, you're going to have to face the wall...again!"

Es and I thought that we were prepared for the "terrible twos" but we didn't think it'd happen this soon :(

Someone P-L-E-A-S-E tell us that this is just a phase!

Er, Hello Auntie?

You know that you're well on your way to 'Auntie-dom' when buying a brand new MOP makes you very, very happy. Sigh.

I absolutely HATE traditional mops. I find them dirty and disgusting especially when they're hanging upside down to dry...eeks! The thought of a wet mop makes me cringe, which is why I was overjoyed when I spied myself the Scotch-Brite Super Mop. It offers "high efficiency cleaning!" with its microfiber mop cloth. My type of mop; not only does it clean like a regular mop but it can also be used for dry moping, much like the way you would use a magic clean wipe. Efficient, clean and multi-functional. Yay.

I know I shouldn't say this, but it was the highlight of my day. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a floor to mop.

Wee Wish You A Merry Christmas!

We've been sooo busy with a whole slew of projects that left us scrambling to get our pressies ready (and we're still not at the very last minute.

While I've completely failed at getting the house Christmassy this year, I'm pleased to report that I did manage to make a costume for Skyler to wear to a "Be A Christmas Tree" party that we were invited to!

Skyler's wearing a green tutu with a felt Christmas tree on her onesie. And no tree is complete without a star on top. Ta da!

You can't tell here but Esmond's supposed to be the tree trunk and Skyler, the tree.

I made a felt tree for Esmond's shirt (he wanted 'manly' decorations so I gave him black sequins and beads. Hyak hyak!) As for me, I stuck a felt tree on my hairband and went to the party as a Christmas tree skirt.

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone! Or according to Skyler, "MEH-ME MISSMASS"!

Cat & Mouse

Having been away on a mission trip for most of last week, Esmond had precious time alone with little Miss Wee. So what did father and daughter get up to? I think they had a ball of a time and neither of them are telling. But from the evidence I've gathered, they painted the town red - together - of course.

Well, when the cat's away, the mice will play right? Right.

The Energizer Bunny

For someone like Skyler who's petite, the amount of energy she has can be comparable to the amount that an ant can carry on top of its own body weight. The only way I know how to describe her energy levels is 'supernatural'.

From the time she wakes up to the time she takes her naps, Skyler is one busy bee...buzzing from one toy to another, from one corner to another, from one secret hiding place to another.

To give you a better idea of how our 'Little Miss Active' works, picture this: an inflatable pool - nowhere to go except round and round right?

Put Skyler in said pool and she'll find ways to do something (well, many things in fact) out of nothing! I sat in the pool with her one hot afternoon and she buzzed around me non-stop for half an hour at least. I just sat and watched and it got me very, very tired.

Anyway, here's a rare video of Skyler falling asleep while we were on our way home after a day out. She expanded ALL of her energy and fell asleep while eating a biscuit - notice that she continued eating her biscuit even after.

She's our little sweetheart and we love her just as she is.

We're back!

I know, I excuse can validate our l-o-n-g absence from this blog. What can I say, we're TARDY, TARDY Wees. What with a crashed hard-drive, death of 2 computer batteries, job changes, growth spurts, hunger strikes, coupled with the characteristic Wee habit of being late, this poor little blog has taken a backseat and gone from 'Almost Home' to 'Almost Forgotten'.

In the time that we've been gone, our littlest Wee has grown in leaps and bounds. She's now a walking, talking, super active little being. We'll be updating this blog with her daily antics soon!

For those who have been kind enough to still check this blog from time-to-time, thank you for your faith in us! Haha. Here's a welcome home treat from us, to you :)

Much love,
The Wees (Esmond, Sue & Skyler)
