Bible Verse of the Day

June 2010

We live in a condo, so it’s impossible to keep a pet.  But we do harbor hopes of owning a pet one fine day.

Recently Ethan started role-playing as an animal doctor.  He would tell us all that he has changed his name to become “Animal Doctor” and that he would tell all his friends in school he has changed his name too.  He would use his Ben 10 watch (with light feature) to check our mouths and ears, and declare us “Healthy!”

We figured it might be because he wanted to have a pet of his own.  So this conversation ensued.

Daddy: Ethan, would you like to have a pet?
Ethan: Yes!
Daddy: What pet would you like?
Ethan (without hesitation): A GIRAFFE!


Hannah’s favorite word (besides “Mommy”) has got to be “Bar-beee!”  She is definitely NOT referring to the doll of a similar sounding name, that’s for sure. 

When she opens a book, she will point at the pictures and say, “Bar-beee!   Bar-beee!” 

When she hears a dog barking, she’ll laugh and say, “Bar-bee!”

When she sees a bird flying, she’ll point and scream, “Bar-bee!!”

She even points at our photographs at home and goes, “Bar-beeee! Bar-beeee!!!”

All the soft toys and animals are “Bar-beee!” to her.

I know she will soon outgrow this phase when she adds more words to her vocabulary, but right now sometimes it is just so amusing to hear her go, “Bar-beee!” and he brother *correcting* her, “Not Bar-beeee, Hannah…that’s an apple!” LOL

Last weekend we took a drive down to KL.  It was a 3-day weekend, so we got to spend 2 nights in KL.

For a long time now, when Hannah rides in the car, she has been turning her head to see what’s in front.  Hannah was still in the infant car seat which was rear-facing, and seeing that she is so curious about “what’s in front” (plus the fact that she LOVES being in a forward-facing stroller), we figured it was high time she was *upgraded* to her front-facing car seat.

Both Ethan and Hannah looked SO adorable in their matching car seats.  Here they are, all buckled up and ready to go! 🙂


And yes, they both have matching CHEEKY grins too.  I guess it’s hereditary.. 😛



It was a rather relaxing trip, and we didn’t really want to rush around everywhere.  But we did manage to stop by 1-Utama for lunch and a quick walkaround.  We rented a stroller for Hannah, and Ethan wanted something to ride in too, so in the end, he got to ride in on of the kiddie firetrucks.  I tell you, that firetruck was a BIG HIT with both his cousins, Collin and Jonathan! 🙂


On the day we were to leave for Penang, we decided to go for a short dip in the swimming pool in Pauline KorKor’s condo.  Believe it or not, it was Hannah’s first time ever in a swimming pool, and boy, was she excited!  Ethan was of course, the eager beaver, and he slid into the pool all by himself!


For someone who was having a first-time experience in the pool, Hannah really enjoyed herself, and she didn’t show a single sign of fear.



Ethan was even strong enough to climb OUT of the pool on his own!


We really had an awesome time in the pool.  I did two laps, and Pete did one (shortened by the fact that he hurt his forehead on the wall of the pool…OUCH). 

Ethan told me later, “Mommy, I had a great time in the swimming pool.  Did you have a good time, too?”

Of course I did, baby.  🙂
