Alba, here I come again!

What a surprise! Aye. We are going home to Scotland with wee man next week. Scott's work sending him over to Aberdeen to help out with a training and we will be tagging along. =) He was informed last Thursday that he might need to go for the training right before he left for Moscow. Ever since, we have been praying and hoping that he will be chosen to go as we can tag along as well. The final decision wasn't made until yesterday by his boss and we have been busy looking for tickets since we got the green light.

We are thrill about the fact that we get to bring wee man back to Scotland when he is still a wee baby. He went home with me to Malaysia when he was 3-month-old and it was great to introduce him to my family. My parents were over the moon when they saw their grandson! =) I hope we can make a trip back next year to visit my family again in Malaysia. As wee man grows so fast and I am sure my parents will like to see him more often. What a lucky baby! At the age of 8-month-old and he already get to see so much of the world and start accumulating air miles already. Haha! Not bad at all! :P

From now on, we will be quite busy getting ready for the trip as there is only one week left before we leave for Scotland. I better come up with a list for things that we need to pack for wee man. At the mean time, his granny has already started thinking about getting him a baby cot, highchair, diapers that he can use while we are there. What a thoughtful granny, wee man is the most lucky baby in the world having so many people loves him! =)

Wee man and his Tonka Dump Truck


Mummy bought wee man a Tonka truck today and he seems to be very happy with his new toy. He loves to be pushed around in his brand new toy and I am hoping this truck will keep him entertain for a while even beyond his infant year. =) I remember my own little brother grew up with tons of toy cars in various shape and size. I guess that explains why he likes to mess with his truck so much now!

Flowers from my wee garden/patio






When Scott's mum and granny were here, we spent quite some time doing gardening work and my job is to keep all the plants alive after they left. It has been almost a month since they went home and we have been watering the plants religiously on a daily basis. Here are the results and I am quite proud of what we had done so far for our wee garden/patio. I guess the secret of having a green thumb is not that complicated after all. You just need to remember to water and feed your plants! =)

First time on a slide


We went to the neighbourhood dog park to meet up with a couple of our friends from my old work this afternoon. While we were waiting for them, we went to the playground beside the dog park and mummy brought wee man sliding down on a slide and daddy caught this moment with his iphone. =)

I think it is an ergonomic slide and therefore, it's not as slippery compared to those metal slides that we used to have while I was a kid. Those modern ergonomic slides that's built for safety reasons definitely won't let you slide down as fast as those old metal slides, I think those old slides are way more fun! I missed my childhood quite a lot ever since I became a mum!

Splash Park again?


Aye! Aye! We brought wee man back to the splash park again and it was quite crowdedcompare to yesterday and I guess that's because a lot of people were off work due to Memorial long weekend. Kids were running around and wee man wasn't too comfortable especially when kids were screaming their heads off. But oh well.... it was still a good experience for him and I am sure he will get use to it eventually.

At the Splash Park


The playgroup went to the Splash Park today and Eunice tagged along with us. Most of the kids love it although wee man is not too crazy about the idea yet. But I think he enjoyed being on the swing and hang out with his aunt. It's a pleasant day and hopefully tomorrow is not going to be hot as we going to bring wee man there again before Scott goes to Moscow this Saturday.

Happy Mother's day!

A gift from Wee man for my first Mother's day and it makes my cup of tea taste much better! =)

I love my new mug. Apparently Wee man managed to call his dad on Thursday afternoon and asked him to swing by Starbucks to pick up the mug for mummy as a Mother's day gift. What else could you ask for when you have a thoughtful son and a helpful hubby? Thank you and I love you both very much!

Who says I am the milkman's son?

Can anybody see the resemblance in Euan and Scott when he was a bairn?

It has been a while...

We have been quite busy when granny and GG came to visit for 10 days. They went home about a week ago and Euan and mummy have not been feeling well for quite a while. It's the cold bug that's bothering us and hopefully we will be getting better soon!

Here are some of the pics I took while Scott was away in the Middle East. I will follow up with a recap of wee man 8-month-old and more pics in a bit. =)

I am still a happy baby while I am teething (the upper right central incisors was coming in). Look at those rosy cheeks!

Wee man loves sucking his tumb, but he decided to stop sucking it last week all of a sudden...

Drooling monster!!

I love my book!

I hope he will grow up loving reading.
