JAMES TAN JOO CHIAT

Loving and faithful husband, father, and ah kong.

Born: 24 July 1945
Called Home to be with the Lord: 27 January 2013

May his soul rest in peace. Amen.

Justin at 42 Months

Justin turned 42 months old on 25 January 2013.

Often during bedtime, he would sadly ask, "Why did Poh Poh pass away?" or say "I don't want Poh Poh to pass away." In our prayers, he would often remember to keep track of how long ago Poh Poh had passed away saying, "We pray for Poh Poh who passed away n weeks ago, may she rest in peace."

In the last month, he had been nursing a persistent cough and the occasional fever.

Jianna at 9 Months

Jianna turned 9 months old on 30 December 2012. Here are her updates:
  • She started clapping her hands on 17 December 2012.
  • Her first two teeth appeared this month.
  • She likes gnawing on a big piece of apple, consuming quite a bit in the process.
  • She can now stand unaided for about 1-2 seconds from a squatting position. We first saw her do this on 26 December 2012.

Julian at 67 Months

Julian turned 67 months old on 28 December 2012. We recently learned from his babysitter that he has developed a taste (an expensive one! *sweats*) for cod fish.

Christmas 2012

We had a quiet Christmas this year due to a number of factors:
  • Mummy (Angie's mother) passed away just over 3 weeks earlier.
  • Papa is still in hospital (he was admitted the day Mummy passed away).
  • Christmas this year was on a weekday (Tuesday).
The only things Christmas-y that we did was to attend the God Speaking musical at the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit on the night of 22 December 2012 (even then we could only manage 45 minutes before the boys said they were sleepy and wanted to go home), bought some presents, and attend Christmas morning mass.

Justin at 41 Months

Justin turned 41 months old on 25 December 2012. Due to his surprising weight drop the previous month, he was asked to drop by the clinic again this month, which we complied on 11 December 2012. Thankfully, he registered a healthy 15kg. Last month's weight drop was attributed to the use of a different weighing scale.

Overall, we noticed that he seemed to have suddenly grown a bit more mature.
