Terrific Three!

Noah turned three last weekend. We had a celebration with his friends in school two days before his birthday, and he was so excited to see me in his classroom. I baked a Thomas the Train chocolate cake for him, and both Nathan and Noah requested for a second helping. Made all that hard work worthwhile. :)

He has always liked staying in hotels and has no problems sleeping in unfamiliar places. We decided to go on a staycation to Shangri-la's Rasa Sentosa Resort and we are so glad we did! It was so much fun! Leading up to the staycation, Noah kept asking... "are we going to the hotel now?"... he was really looking forward to it. We spent lots of time swimming at the pool (thanks to the ongoing dry spell) and building sandcastles at the beach. A short two days one night staycation where we took time to slow down a little and fill up all our love tanks.

At the end of our staycation, Noah asked if we could stay for a few more days or come back next week. Just shows how much fun our birthday boy had.

Some random facts about our 3 year old Noah...

1) Enjoys building things out of duplo blocks and magformers and his models are actually pretty impressive!


2) Started school 'proper' this year and settled in really easily. Didn't shed a single tear. So glad that he loves going to school.

3) Falls asleep easily at night and hardly disturbs us till day break.

4) Loves his brother Nathan and it warms my heart when I see them playing together.

5) Favorite songs include:- the wise man built his house, walking with Jesus, 我要向高山举目. I love it when he starts belting out a song (c/w actions) now and then.

6) Getting more comfortable in the swimming pool but still doesn't like putting his head under water.

7) Tends to want to read the same story every single night. The record is probably The Gruffalo, 4 weeks in a row. We have read it so much, he can somewhat remember it by heart.

8) Doesn't like taking photos... We have to bribe him to smile for the camera.

9) Loves eating strawberries and drinking Chinese soups.

10) Full of wise cracks. His witty comments never fail to amuse me.

11) Wants to be Spider-Man, lord business and a policeman when he grows up.

Dear Noah,
You've been such a darling, I am so thankful for you. We pray that you'll continue grow in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and men. Know that you are greatly loved.

That Little Boy of Mine
Two eyes that shine so bright,
Two lips that kids good nite,
Two arms that hold me tight,
That little boy of mine.

No one could ever know how much your coming has meant.
Because I love you so, you're something heaven has sent.

You're all the world to me.
You climb upon my knee.
To me you'll always be.
That little boy of mine.
