Spring is in the Air!

Spring in HK is like summer in Toronto. The weather is nice and warm without being too hot and humid! We took advantage of the lovely weather a couple of weeks ago and spent some time at the park.

Natalie looks like such a lady with her lovely sun hat and beautiful dress (and don't forget those shades!)

Lauren was out too enjoying the sun...

and here's a lovely picture of the beautiful Wang ladies

KCS Aerobics Day

Every year, Natalie's school (local section) puts on an "Aerobics Day" show where parents are welcome to attend and watch the students perform a dance. This year, I once again joined the paparazzi frenzy in the parents' mosh pit and came away with the below photos and videos.

See Video 349 of the start of Natalie's show where she and her classmates march to the front of the "dancing area" together. It's clear the students have been told they must stand with their feet on either side of the blue line and so many of them are looking at the floor and carefully placing their shoes on either side of the blue line.

Also see Video 350 of the actual performance. Natalie gives me a little smile and overall seems a bit uninterested in doing physical activity, but dutifully follows along with her classmates through the dance.

Natalie seated with her class as they patiently wait for their turn to perform. Natalie and her friend Summer give me little smiles.
Natalie's friend Elsa also gives a cute smile.

Nice smile from Natalie.

Lauren's First Solids

About 2 weeks ago, Lauren turned 6 months old and hit an important milestone... she began eating solids! Our first meal of choice was oatmeal. See Video 348 of Lauren's first few bites.

Lauren in the bumbo-sitter, happy and ready for food.
Food! Food! Food!

Our girls

It's been great to see our two girls growing up together. It can be hard to get a good photo of them both because getting them to smile and look at the camera at the same time takes a lot of patience and luck.

Me and the girls. I love this photo! We're all smiling :)

Big smile from Natalie. Little smile with Lauren.
Natalie loves to turn on this automatic rocker for Lauren. Although, it's always set on the fastest setting for some reason. Thanks to the Chen Den for lending this rocker to us!

Star of the Week

Can you guess who was the "Star of the Week" for her KG1PM class?

It's Natalie! She was selected as the star this week for using initiative when joining in with the group activity of making fruit salad. We're so proud of her!

Porpor in Hong Kong

Porpor was in Hong Kong again for one month. It was so great to see her again and she had a lot of opportunity to spend time with her 6 grandchildren here, including Natalie and Lauren. We didn't get many photos though, but we'll be together again in the Summer soon!
Below are a couple pics of Porpor with Lauren and her cute pigtails.

Happy 6 Months, Lauren!

Lauren turned 6 months old just yesterday. Time flies! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, baby!

Lauren looking grown up with her hair done up and sitting propped up on the sofa.
She's also got her first tooth. If you look really really really carefully and use a bit of your imagination, you can see it coming up on the bottom right (Lauren's right).
