Hi Cousin

Posted by Picasa

"Let me show you how this thing works." (Elliot, 17 months to Derek, 7 months)

Happy happy!

It was too hot to go to the park these last few weeks, but here is Dek before the intense summer heat wave enjoying the swing. This is a far cry from when we used to put him in the baby swing as a newborn and he'd scream his head off.

In other Dek related news, he's continuing to pull up and and started cruising (sorta). He likes being supported and walking about. No crawling yet. Also, he's really started to develop an opinion about solid foods. If he doesn't like it - he'll spit it out! Not cool. He still currently favors orange foods still: squash, carrots and sweet potatoes.  Also he's really reactive now, he'll turn his whole body or look up and around if he hears the slightest interesting noise/conversation/vibration.

Minus not really sleeping in long stretches, we're having such a great time.

Visiting Lolo at the Naval Academy

A few weekends ago, we went with Lola (Mike's grandma) and his Tita Susan visit Derek Sr.'s resting place at the Naval Academy. Dek enjoyed his time there (despite the heat). I love that this wonderful baby has really brought both our families together. Though he's almost 9 months, he still let's everyone hold him and loves being life of the party.

Sitting in George Washington's Pew at Church

Dek was here for Baby Yukino's christening. Same church that George Washington, George Mason and Lord Fairfax went to Church. Nifty!

Cheering up great grandma.

Dek hugging with his grannie and giving her moral support. My grandma (96 years old!) had a bowel obstruction that is clearing up. Dek was so patient and just hung out with her so she could get a smile.
Grandma is doing much better now, she thankfully will not need surgery and should be coming home from the hospital soon.

Cousin Reunion!

Mercy tries to get back to sleep while the boys play.

Dek is helping Elliot write a blog (that's what the laptop said).

Hanging out in Laundry Baskets is Cool

Hanging with Grandpa (Ong). For those who didn't know, my dad was involved in an accident where he broke both legs. He's expected to make a full recovery, but its been a long road.

I guess this is waht they did before they had playpens?

Overdue Orlando Update

Last month Dek went to Orlando to visit his favorite Floridian auntie and uncle - Christine and Kyle. Have been digging out very slowly. Too tired to explain. Basically life caught up to me and blogging became not as much of a priority.
