December 2014...

... the last month of the year
... time for reflection on the past year
... to look forward to a new year

I can't believe 2014 is almost over. It seems like we have just ushered in 2014 and now we are welcoming 2015.

The boys have grown so much over the year. Small J has lost his baby fats and has grown from a baby who can barely crawl to a toddler who is running all over the place. The thing that has not changed is his hair. It's been more than a year and yet it is still so sparse.

Big J has lost his baby fats too. He has grown taller but not fatter. I do hope he will gain more fat. I have no idea where all the food he eats has gone to.

Jan 2014 vs Dec 2014

Because time passes so quickly, I always cherish the moments that we are together. Simple play like chasing, hugging, rolling or just lazing around are always fun and full of laughters. On this day, we propped up the playmat, throw a blanket over and it becomes their little house. The boys keep jumping and rolling in their house. They got a bit too rough and pushed over the playmat. No more house and so they started building a tunnel. 

We also went to Gallop Stable at Punggol for some pony riding. It costs $10 for a 5 minutes ride. Price is quite steep, if you ask me. But for the experience, I say it's totally worth it!  It was Big J's first time riding a pony and I must say that he did very well! He was not scared and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. If you want to go, do prepare mosquito patch and insect repellent. Almost all of us got bitten by the mosquitoes.

As we look forward to 2015, my wish is good health for the family. There are too many instances of us getting sick in 2014. I also hope to be more organised, both in our house and myself.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the supporters of this little blog of mine. Thanks for reading, thanks for sharing and thanks for commenting. If you are new here, here are some of the most popular and my favourite posts for this year. Do take some time to read them ok?

3. Nights of a FTWM

Catch a glimpse of my after work hours. What do I do after I have knock off from my full-time job? Definitely not chill and relax.

4. Love

Very often, we heard people saying that the love between a couple will change after having kids, usually in an unfavourable way. In this post, I talk about the hubby and how our love for each other has changed after we have kids. This is a very heartfelt post for me. I divulged a lot of secrets here. Please read ok?

That's all from me for this year. See you in 2015!
