It’s a belated post.
It’s our second time to the Jacob Ballas Children Garden. This time round we dated our KKH fellow “comrades” and celebrated Fathers’ Day together.
Coincidentally the last time we met up was also last year’s Father’s Day!
The boys have grown a lot since then. They both have some uncanny resemblances as well.
That’s Hao Hao:
That’s the younger one, Xi En:
And the men have aged (just a little lah). Haaa….
We had a good time catching up.
Sometimes getting together even without words give a sense of comfort– only the “comrades” understood the struggle we went through pregnancy and bringing up preemies.
But it’s also great comfort these 2 boys are now healthy and ermm….. haughty! Well… that’s boys for you right?
The extra cheeky one proves to be……:
Yes, my boy.
Hao was all gentlemanly playing with sand tools and Xi En was all restlessly bouncing here and there.
Both boys love the water play too! Xi En has come a long way from disliking these water play areas.
It’s time to buy some proper swim clothes!
Once again, Happy Fathers’ Day to these 2 wonderful, resilient and loving Daddies!
Special thanks to Kim for being the pillar of support for us all these while!
It is Kim’s 1st official Father’s Day last Sunday. He is just so proud to be a Daddy.
We went out for a late simple breakfast, bought Kim a nice present and ended off the night with a hotpot at Mum’s house; complete with a cake.
Kim’s Big Hearty Breakfast Burger from Carl’s J:
Mine – 1st time trying out KFC breakfast. Nice but not value for $ though. Mac’D still rocks! haaa.. :
To keep Xi En quiet while we have our breakfast, he gets the trusty old giraffe! He loves chewing at the toy giraffe’s legs as they fit nicely into his mouth! No choice, if we don’t give him something to chew on, he will be screaming the roof down…
Lastly, Kim holding his pride and joy; with the good old ‘cake-cutting picture”:
This 1st Father’s Day is significant to Kim because exactly one year ago, it was uncertain if the above photos could be taken. While I was confined to bed-rest in the hospital for 3 months, Kim tirelessly travel to and from work-hospital-home everyday to spend time with me and our then-unborn Xi En. His everyday life for 3 whole months was to wake up at 5am, drive to JB to work, drive to hospital to spend time with us and then go home about 10pm every night. And the whole cycle repeats itself everyday. I was quite concerned then if he might just break down and give up. But of course, knowing Kim – he held on, sacrificially; spending all his available time with us and persevered till the day Xi En was born. Even after I was discharged, his “hospital-journey” did not stop. As Xi En was still in N-ICU then, Kim repeated his work-hospital-home journey for the next 2 months before Xi En was finally discharged.
What more can I say. Kim is a GREAT hubby, SACRIFICIAL daddy and above all he loves us with all his heart! THANK YOU, Kim for being there for us and loving us! HAPPY DADDY’S DAY!
