2013 in Review

by - Tuesday, December 31, 2013

On the last day of 2013, it's time to reflect on how the year has passed.

2013 has been a lot for us.

I was pregnant during the year. The pregnancy journey wasn't very smooth during the first trimester and it got us so worried. However it was a great relief that everything turned out fine and I had a smooth delivery.

The biggest change for us is the addition of Small J to our family. It was so wonderful to be a Mom again. I have to get used to breastfeeding, handling of baby and the sleepless nights. He's 6 months old now and during this short period, we witnessed many of his firsts. First cries, first smile, first laughter, first flip, first babble, first try to sit, first swim, first solid food and many many more.

Big J is also trying very hard to getting used to having a brother. Although he was a bit reluctant that there is someone else to share his attention and love, he slowly accepted his brother and learnt how to love him too. We also tried to spend as much time as possible with him so that he will not feel rejected.

Another big change for Big J is that he has started school. In the beginning, he couldn't get used to a schooling environment. I was getting complains almost everyday when I picked him up from school. But I'm glad that he is slowly changing his behaviour. On the positive side, he is really learning a lot from school. He can speaks better and loves to sing songs. On the negative side, he got sick within a few days after starting school and also contracted HFMD. I hope that he will be more healthy in the coming year.

That's our 2013 and we are looking forward to a wonderful 2014.
