hi! my name is caitlyn!

Last night, Caitlyn was messing with her dad who was busy solving Sudoku puzzles. His ballpen cap suddenly fell off. Caitlyn picked it up, insert her index finger in it and said in her tiny voice: "Hi! My name is Caitlyn!" Haha! She surely knew how to get his dad's attention!

It was surprising as no one has actually taught her how to do it neither has she seen anyone doing that. I have a tiny hint that my baby is a genius! For a kid who has just turned 2 4wks ago, she has a very creative mind, sharp memory, already knew how to count from 1 to 15, chooses her own dvd and knows how to operate the player, chooses what shoes to wear, recognizes the primary colors, knows her ABC, participates in the mass, knows her night prayer and initiates kissing mom and dad goodnight before she sleeps.

Oh Caitlyn, she's really driving us crazy! Making me just want to stay with her whole day! :)

What Kind of Intelligence Do I Have?

This is pretty accurate..

Your Dominant Intelligence is Logical-Mathematical Intelligence

You are great at finding patterns and relationships between things.
Always curious about how things work, you love to set up experiments.
You need for the world to make sense - and are good at making sense of it.
You have a head for numbers and math ... and you can solve almost any logic puzzle.

You would make a great scientist, engineer, computer programmer, researcher, accountant, or mathematician.

I've been a SAHM since last Monday and will be for another week. No, I did not quit work (not yet!). SAHM: Sick At Home Mom!

The day after Caitlyn's birthday, I had myself admitted at the hospital for an operation the following day. Yup, mylove was right. I, too, had gall stones. That's what causing the tummy pains.

Thankfully, my operation went ok. I was released from the hospital last Thursday and am currently at home healing my wounds. I have 4 small holes on my tummy.

I love being at home because I get to spend more time with Caitlyn. However, with my wounds still fresh, I can't carry her or even sleep with her because she might accidentally hit my tummy. Sometimes I wonder if Caitlyn gets upset because we don't allow her to cling with me the way she used to. There were times when she asked me to carry her and would have to explain to her that I can't because I have "boo-boo". I'd ask her if it's alright if I'd just hold her hand. Good thing, God gave us a very smart little girl as she would say "yes" or "ok" and would not persist on being carried anymore :)

But really, I'm enjoying being just a mom at home, taking care of Caitlyn and my love. I enjoyed planning dinner (even if I don't get to cook yet) and making sure it's ready before my love arrives from work.

This is life for me.. and this is my ultimate goal. To become an SAHM (STAY at home mom). Hopefully soon..

Caitlyn is 2!

We celebrated Caitlyn's birthday at Icebergs Harbour Square last week, March 25th. It was very well attended. I didn't expect it to turn out that way. Friends and relatives who didn't show up last year were there so our actual guests exceeded our estimates. We only reserved for 100 adults and 40 kids, 130 adult and 46 kids showed up. I was glad everyone had a great time even if the place actually became too crowded for everyone. Our magician host, Wanlu, was really good. Everyone, kids and adults, enjoyed the party.

Caitlyn enjoyed her party as well. She got really tired and fell asleep on our way home. We thought we'd never have the chance to open her presents but she woke up at around 10pm and so we opened her gifts.

Thanks everyone for coming to Caitlyn's 2nd birthday party and for the presents! Hope to see you again on her 7th (or next!?) birthday! We're not planning any party for Caitlyn next year as we're planning to have a Disneyland celebration for Caitlyn. We'll see...
