在一般情况下我礼拜天早晨会带睿妍去远足，不过这个礼拜天跟一般的有一点不同 – 因为今天我们在台北！今天早上我们起来的时候妈妈爸爸想做一些运动， 但是因为需要照顾睿妍没办法去健身房。所以我们只好在房间里做。睿妍还当了我们的健身教练，确保我们的姿势是标准，监督，提点还有帮我们看时间。
吃午饭我们又去了逛街。本来我们 只打算帮睿妍买一双Royal Elastics因为香港没买。我们喜欢这个牌子因为不需要绑鞋带，我们觉得很方便还有很适合睿妍。后来到了百货店发现了两个问题：一是鞋子太大双了，二是爸爸妈妈也想买新鞋子但是旧的还没坏掉！
From when Adelaide was born, we speak Cantonese, English and Mandarin to her amongst different family members. Ever since, we all wondered what language would she say her first word in. She did say dada, baba and mama every now and then but I think they are more international baby babbles so I disregarded them as her first word.
And yesterday, she finally uttered her first word! It was in….. Mandarin! She said 嘎..嘎嘎 which means quack quack in Mandarin (or could be she is trying to hint she wants to listen to some Lady Gaga!). But if my presumption is correct, she learnt the word from the Chicken and Duck song that Ms Jessie sings at the playgroup. She has been saying 嘎..嘎嘎 a lot today!
Uncle Heng comes over for dinner every Monday night. We have a good meal, and then watch some TV together. It’s something wonderful to look forward to on Monday’s and helps beat Monday-itis.
Adelaide also gets to spend more time with Heng…
Recently we’ve switched Adelaide’s sleeping time from 7pm till 8pm. It lets us have a bit more sleep in the morning, but also lets me spend some more time with her in the evenings. An unexpected bonus from this is that she also gets to spend more time with uncle Heng on Monday nights.
This evening uncle Heng took Adelaide for a quick spin on the dance floor, and read her a bedtime story before we put her to bed this evening. She absolutely loved it!
Thanks Uncle Heng!
前天给昨天的天气预告评论是大致多云 ，有几阵骤雨 。所以昨天早上我们都很担心会下雨，我们就去不了了。
So today is Mid-Autumn Festival, Daddy Wei spontaneously decided to take a day off to enjoy the full experience of this festival with us! Adelaide and I were both very excited that daddy get to join Adelaide’s new playgroup class for the first time. There were special actives on top of the regular class routine today. Adelaide made her first lantern with daddy, we took group pictures and during snack time we even shared some biscuits made with whole grain and cereal with rest of the class. They all loved it!
After class, we went to one of our favorite cafe, Hazel & Hershey for a coffee and enjoy our last packet of healthy yet tasty biscuits with it. Wei got at cold brew bottled like a beer and I had a flat white and started writing this blog while Adelaide had fun cruising around.
Just when I wrote up to this point, I spotted a very eye catching teal pour over kettle, wondering if I should acquire it to our kitchen collection but Whoo it cost way over I am willing to pay so I ended up taking pictures of the kettle and add into my album collection instead!
Actives didn’t end from there, after having lunch, we went for an afternoon swim at Thomas and Maria’s place, then we had dinner with mom, dad and por por. To match with the theme, mom specially prepared 盤菜 for dinner and of coz we have to eat some mooncakes!
