It was Max's first time to the zoo and he was excited! Not only does he gets to see the animals in real life, he also got to spend the day with lots of gege and chieh chieh, like Michael, Eric, Mia, Luke, Bethany, Isabella...etc. A total of 5 families went together and there were about 11 kids. The firs photo is from "Breakfast with the Animals" - where we ate breakfast at one of the restaurants and a little friend stopped by for a show-and-tell session. We also got to take photos up close! The photo turned out pretty good! What a fun day it was for the kids, but very tiring for mommies and daddies because it was very H.O.T! Max took a nice nap in the middle of the day and slept for quite a while. The most fun part for him had to be sitting on the bandwagon with Michael and Eric. Michael gege is very good with Max, always taking good care of him!
Uncle Tommy and Isabella stayed with us for about 10 days in Dec. They arrived in mid-Dec and spent Xmas with us. We loved having them around. The house was always very busy and fun. We did watch a lot of cartoons too. Max watched Finding Nemo, the Lion King, and Alladin for the first time. And then he watched it for about 10 times later. Uncle Tommy is great with kids. He was very nice and took Mommy and Max out to lunch at the restaurant inside the Botanical Garden.
Max found the corner of the living room, behind the curtain, a great place to play peek-a-boo with mommy. It is good, clean fun until Max turned peek-a-boo time turned into pooping time. It must be really hard to joggle playing with doing business. Towards the end, it is obvious that he really wants to continue playing but it was time to get down to business.
Wow 2010 went by very quickly. And we really meant to post more photos before, but there was a problem with blogspot, the files were too big, so we waited until now to post photos from Grandma Annie's visit. When mommy and daddy went away for a trip, Grandma Annie flew all the way from Vancouver to babysit. Max didn't really miss mom and dad at all. Grandma played with Max all day, fed him, bathe him, and even rock him to sleep every night. Max didn't have to cry cry to go to sleep. It was paradise. But good times go by quickly. After 2 weeks, grandma has to go home. Max misses grandma a lot but we know it won't be long when they meet again. There's a video from a seafood restaurant we went to, and Max got so excited when he saw all the fishes, crabs, lobster, he couldn't stop talking. But then he ended up having bad dreams that night wake up crying. Perhaps he was dreaming about lobster chasing him.
