Our unexpected summer stay-cation

24 October 2016 by rathy | Leave a comment

This past June, a unit two floors up ended up flooding all the floors beneath it and unfortunately we were one of those units. Luckily, we were home at the time and managed to protect our personal property from further water damage. But our luck ended there, because we had to move all of our stuff out in order for the contractors to dehumidify our home, and fix all of the hardwood flooring and walls. While they finished the work, we stayed at a nearby hotel during the summer. Free breakfast, an indoor pool, and housekeeping whenever we need it. Maddie didn’t mind our temporary home. She had plenty of space to play within our 1 bedroom, 1 bath suite.

Thank you Uncle Tristan for the special toy from the Rijksmuseum Shop in Amsterdam, Netherlands. ‘The Milkmaid’ by Playmobil. Her favorite piece was the milk jug.

Madeline’s First Birthday Party #2

15 May 2016 by rathy | Leave a comment

We also had a second 1st birthday party for Maddie to celebrate with more family and friends who lived closer to my parent’s home. I was happy that a lot of my childhood friends were able to come. Maddie was definitely excited by all the attention.

Madeline’s First Birthday Party #1

30 April 2016 by rathy | Leave a comment

It was a little over six months ago that we celebrated Maddie’s first birthday. And I’ve only just got around to posting pictures! For party #1 which was mainly to celebrate with our family and Seattle friends, we decided to do a Super Mario Bros. themed birthday. My brother-in-law Eugene and sister-in-law Chika graciously hosted Maddie’s party since our space wouldn’t have accommodated everyone.

I did a lot of paper crafting for the party, from the banner, to cupcake toppers, to party favor boxes, and even the crowns that Maddie and I wore. To go along with the theme, we dressed up for it which made it super cute. We also hired a paper cut artist to have paper cuts made of each of our guests as a party favor to take home with them. The food was Italian inspired and I even found my old Nintendo and Super Nintendo systems to play with. Despite the rainy day, I think everyone had a great time. Thanks to our family and friends who made it out to the party. And a huge thanks to Eugene and Chika for hosting, as well as helping make a majority of the food.

Madeline at 6 months

16 April 2015 by rathy | Leave a comment

Our daughter turned six months old on April 1. No joke! Time has flown, and she’s already got her own personality. Generally, Maddie is quite a chill and relaxed baby. She doesn’t really fuss much, and does well on outings. She’s learned to roll over, sit up unsupported, laughs and babbles a lot, and likes to grab at anything you’re holding whether it’s a piece of paper or an iPhone. She’s still a tiny baby compared to others, but that’s ok. She’s growing at a steady pace. And as long as she’s healthy, I’m happy.

As for myself, six months postpartum, I’ve come to terms with how my body has changed after my pregnancy. I’ve since lost the baby weight that I gained, but it’s definitely a different body. Life after the birth of Maddie has also changed, and has taken some time to get used to. Every moment, we feel so busy and rushed. I just need to remember to breathe once in a while, and realize that every moment is also fleeting. The moments with Maddie, and the moments that my husband and I have together.

I’m hoping now that every chance I get, I can capture our life with Madeline to remember every bit of how much we love her.
