Ninth Encounter

Angie and I presented our ninth Engaged Encounter Weekend. The 69th Catholic Engaged Encounter Weekend was held from 4-6 April 2008 at the College General, Penang. 22 couples attended the weekend. We were on the presenting team with Fr. Ambrose Vaz, and Jacob and Padma from the Singapore Engaged Encounter Community.

Baby in a Boat

We finally got Julian a boat so we don't have to perpetually hold him in the pool. Although the maiden voyage had to be delayed for a few days due to bad weather, the captain has now taken control of the vessel and set sail :-)

Julian at 10 Months

Julian went for his regular bimonthly visit to Aunty Nurse on Wednesday (2 April 2008). He weighed in at 8kg. Not as much as we would have liked, but we've become somewhat accustomed to his slow weight gain. His fourth tooth is now clearly visible.

Recently, on more than one ocassion, we have noticed him beginning to let go of his support when standing. At the moment, he's able to remain standing without support for only a split second.

In terms of communication, we don't think he has actually begun talking, but he's been calling "mama" quite often especially when he's upset and wants mummy to carry him, or when we fail to decipher his request for milk on time. When he objects to being carried, he would voice his displeasure and twist his body (sometimes up to 360 degrees) in an effort to get down.

He's still being 'difficult' when it comes to sitting in the car seat, but we have so far succeeded in putting him in at the most important times - when only one of us is with him. Sometimes when we're together we let him 'win' (it can be quite tiring 'fighting' with him) and carry him for the journey.

Baby at the Beach

Julian went to the beach for the first time two weeks ago (18 March 2008) in Batu Feringghi. He seemed to be curious about the waves.

Julian saw many new things: there were lots of people, fishing boats, jet skis, horses and miles and miles of sand.
