Say Cheese!

We had friends over for dinner last night and Erny brought the coolest door gift - a Fisher Price tricycle that Jarred has outgrown. Gosh, I sure get excited over different things nowadays! Ethan was just as excited as I was when he saw it, so we cycled around the house this morning and went to the park in the afternoon. Here he is posing for the camera. In fact he learned something new these past few days. I said "Say cheese!" and Ethan actually said "Chee.." and smiled! A second after that he would cock his head to one side and smile even more broadly. We don't know where he learned this from but it sure is cute. He knows we think it's cute cos he's tilting his head more and more until in this picture it's at 90 degrees!

Daddy's Home!

Daddy is back and brought Ethan to the Bt Timah Nature Reserve after dropping mummy off at work. There is a big tiger behind us and Ethan made growling sounds when he saw it. It's the same sound he answers with when we ask him "What sound does lion make?" so cute!

We hope Ethan will be as brave as a lion tonight cos it is mummy's turn to go away, though only for one night. Daddy needs to be brave too with Ethan alone tonight!

Daddy in East Timor

Ethan missed his daddy this week cos he was away in East Timor with a team of 4 people from church. Here are two of us with two other Timorese guys. We had a really rowdy jam session in their home the night before so we were good buddies by this time! Now daddy is on the way home using free WiFi in Bali and can't wait to hug Ethan....and mummy too of course! :)

Handphone Conversations

Ethan just loves to chat on the phone. He sometimes also chats using the remote control or the alarm clock, but he usually gets it right and is on the phone. It's a great way to get him to verbalize all that cute baby-speak, and he even intersperses it with a few SMS's!

Out For A Stroll

Look who is so grown up! Ethan was going out with his favourite Dad and it looks like he could take on the world in those sporty sneakers. But going out has its dangers too. Ethan recently got his first elbow scrape when he fell down on the concrete. A few days later and he scratched the scabs off ... all without any crying. What a toughie is our little son!
