Ethan turns 4 in 2010 and he never fails to surprise us. This was a year when Ethan tried and see many new things as well. He took on the role as a page boy for one of our cousin’s wedding and we were pretty worried initially as we were afraid that he might have stage fright. Surprisingly, he enjoyed every moment of it.
As Ethan turns 4, I organized 3 birthday parties for him at RWS, Auntie’s place and in school. Like I mentioned previously, Ethan had been celebrating his birthday in school for 3 years, but this is the first year that I’m celebrating it in school with him. I do hope to do this more often.
At the learning level, Ethan surprised us when he was able to write his own name during his developmental check up. As he grow, we were able to get into several pretty interesting conversations too. These conversations will either make you love him or hate him. If you are a parent yourself, you will know what I’m talking about. The year ended with an excellent performance put up by Ethan. In 2011, Ethan will start embarking on a different learning journey and I hope he will be able to cope it well.
Ethan had the opportunity to visit my places too. For example, the NDP Preview and the SYOG rehearsals. He also had the chance to meet several of his favourite cartoon characters like Elmo, Big Bird, Buzz Lightyear and Woody!
Unlike Ethan, Ezanne is not an easy girl to handle. She doesn’t smile in front of the camera easily and is quite fussy with how things are done. She gave us the opportunity to do our first birthday celebration during Chinese New Year, I’ve never attended or did one before. Ezanne started blabbering when she was 1 and walking when she was 15 months.
As she was relatively younger, the places she visits are also pretty limited but we still try to bring her around like the zoo and Sesame Street show. But as she grows older, I’m sure we will bring her to more places. Now, she has slowly grown to become more independent. She will want to volunteer to help us and we observed that her favourite food is BREAD!
Ezanne will be going to school next year after the birth of Evan. I’m eager to find out how things will turn out.
As we approach the year end, we will welcome the arrival of Evan too.
In 2010, I’ve also created a Facebook fanpage for the children. This is where I document their day to day lives and sharing it with everyone. If you like them, go to their fan page and LIKE the page, not LIKE this post.
