All I want for Christmas is...

When I was little (probably 3 or 4), I remember wanting a talking doll for Christmas. Finally, after 30 long years, my wish has been granted. I'm so happy that my doll not only talks but she walks and, more importantly, also allows me to play dress-up!

Here's my very own Chatty Cathy. (And in the grain of going green, I made Skyler a new hairband using one of Esmond's old band t-shirts!)

Thank you, God!

On Hot Summery Days...

With the weather hot, balmy and and all-round bleah...we've tried to hang out in shopping malls and at swimming pools as much as possible!

Mom, these photos are specially for you!

Footloose & Fancy Free

Skyler's favourite thing to do when I'm on the computer trying to work, is to look at pictures and videos of us on iPhoto. We came across this relatively 'old' dance clip taken just after Skyler turned 1.

Since we can remember, Skyler has shown an affinity to music, well, rhythm to be more exact. Her body would jiggle almost automatically at the sound of music - once, she even started swaying to a car alarm that went off!

I love this clip for 2 reasons. One, because it shows how music affects her - the almost uncontrollable, automatic response to sound, no matter how cheesy. And two, because Skyler Erin Wee is decked out in an outfit reminiscent of the funky aerobic outfits from the 80's. Go 80's!

Go Skyler!
