My dearest Emma
I hope you enjoyed the little 'party' we organised for you on Sunday. Your papa and I were slaving in the kitchen for what felt like eternity, preparing the food for all your guests - nasi lemak, curry puff, satay, prawn crackers, pappadums, bubur hitam... and i forgot to take a photo of all that after we were done!
So anyway I think you had fun running around with the other kids and I hope you liked your birthday gifts.
At 3 yrs old, you certainly test our patience at times! You somehow have learned to cry at the littlest thing, even if kor kor accidentally brushes against you, you'll come to me complaining and crying about how he's hit you. Your incessant whinging about anything and everything is also something that I hope to see less of as you grow older...
You seem to like 'girlier' things now and I'm heaving a sigh of relief, cos for a while you were so into trains and cars like your brother! So i'm rather happy to be indulging you in princesses and fairies and dora toys now :)
You speak fluently in Mandarin, but I still have a little trouble understanding you when you speak English. Obviously, it's just a matter of time before you speak English as fluently as kor kor so nothing that i'm worried about here.
You still drive me nuts at nite when you refuse to go to bed quietly. It takes at least an hour before you will stay in your bed and really go to sleep!!! I am patiently waiting for the day that you will be able to sleep right after i give you a cuddle and goodnite kiss. Of course, i shouldnt be complaining at all because i still remember the days that you woke up every hour when u were a baby!!
There's so much to share that I can't possibly jot it all down in one post. All I wanna say is that I love you so much baby girl, even though you sometimes drive me up the wall with your ridiculous tantrums :P
Happy 3rd Birthday, Emma!
