scanned my lil boy recently and he's up to 831 grams.. i'm in my 5 1/2 month now.. and generally the puking has entered 1st gear (except for today, sighs... torture!) he's a boisterous lil thing cos he seems to find great pleasure in kicking and punching me all hours of the day. ;-) ah well.. i suppose it's to be expected, him being a fiesty boy and all.
doc gave me a 4D video of him which is so adorable.. he covers his face with his arms then removes them to show his face... Lanner is one cute baby even if i say so myself! too bad i can't seem to figure out how to put it here cos it's saved under a very different file. anyway, suffice to say doc checked and he's the right size and weight for his age and all seems to be going by the book. doc even said he'll be giving me some jabs closer to my 30 something week to make sure the baby stays inside at least till 35 weeks..
i spend a lot of time sleeping these days... i swear every time i wake up my belly protrudes more.. as can be expected.. so these days i feel like a beached whale! i think i'm the size i was when i was carrying besra at 7 months. lol.. ah well... cant wait for this one to pop out. ;-) i think two children in this day and age is more than enough. would proclaim myself quite mental if i purposely got pregnant with a third. lol. ;-) more updates after my next scan on the 7th of march. ;-)

Look into my eyes, i can do no wrong!
Bes doing a bit of modelling in a straw hat for daddy.. ;-) dunno where she gets her vanity from! LOL!
Bes is such a fortunate lil girl.. she's already modelling at the ripe old age of 2! hehe.. the studio where we took the christmas shoot used her pics for their digital album and now bes's pic hangs on their wall to attract customers.. the digital album costs RM600 to produce but they gave it to us at cost so they can use their copy as a sample for others. hehe.. very proud of her..
hey all... more updates on the house.. it's coming along, taking its time but coming along nontheless.. almost have a roof now... looking at it, it's actually quite huge.. i suppose a 52x48ft structure would be considered huge these days... can't believe its ours. ;-) one day we'll be living in it on a daily basis and we wont know any different.. right now we live in a tiny apartment.. and the nanny lives in an apartment opposite so baby thinks its perfectly normal to walk across the corridor to get to mommy's n daddy's home... ;-)
as you can see there's lots of space for parking the cars under the house.. nice n shaded... one day we might brick in some rooms for storage or what not.. the two rooms downstairs are on the right, martin's 20x20 tackle den and on the left is a studio for our future help.. hehe.. may get a live in couple to work the land n maintain the living areas, then i'll really be mistress of the house! martin n i will be visiting the house again today.. the grass has just been cut so i'm sure it will look lovely.

Well today is the last day of CNY.. and as usual we have a family dinner planned for tonight. coincidentally it's also my bro in law scott's birthday so it will be a double celebration and if i can find the ingredient.. i'll bake him a cake. ;-)
these pics below were taken on the night of the reunion dinner (traditionally held every chinese new year's eve).. we all gathered at my mom and dad's place.. food was aplenty and we even played a few rounds of gin rummy using tiles that look like mahjong ones. ;-) i dont care what the devil says but small time gambling is great!Baby Besra (2 yrs 3 mths), Baby Cousin Alicia (2 yrs 8 mths) and Uncle Steeve... lookin good!
