It’s Been A Long Time

Yes it’s been a long time since I posted. Along of milestones have been crossed so I think there’s a lot of catch up to do.

Some throwback here. This appeared as memories on my iPhone. And oh boy...memories. I miss this stage dearly.

Throwback - Birthday in 2011. She probably didn’t really understand what birthday was, but the blowing of candle is ritual and fun. Didn’t really know how to blow, so in the end I had to blow it out when she got too near. She looked bewildered when the flame went off. Lol!

Milestone - Cycling On 2 Wheels

Another milestone reached - Cycling on a 2 wheels. Took a few sessions to get her to this stage.

Yining's previous bicycle was a 12'' which she has out-grown due to her height. We had a hard time choosing this current new bike for her actually. She was a little too tall for 14'' and will probably out-grow the bicycle soon but she's a little too short for the 16''. In the end we decided on the 16''. 

Another reason why we chose this bike is because of the weight. It weighs only 9.6kg, compared to the common ones which will weight 12 - 14kg. Considering 6 year olds' body weight of between 20 - 22kg, a 12kg bike is about 60% of their own weight. That 10% less weight is quite significant for them. We got this at Decathlon Singapore for SGD $149, not too pricy, so we went with this.

Now the next thing is to get her to be more stable and teach her more on safety. Once she's done, we can go cycling together for more adventures. :)

You Know You Are Old When This Happens

This is Yining...going after my white hair. She's determined to get that strand out and she's so focused that she didn't know I'm taking a video. :P

I think this can qualify as some sort of parent-child bonding, right?

So, I'm getting older, so is Yining. People have always told me that daughters are more 贴心, more thoughtful. I guess they are right.
