Our little guy will be 5 months in a couple of days. So cliche, but time really flies!

The poor child has the record-breaking least number of pictures taken. This picture wasn’t even taken with a proper camera.
Maybe we’ll just take some of his brothers’ baby photos and pass it off as his. 🙂 They really do look alike. So much so, that currently there is a debate going on about a particular picture that we have on display…none of us (the children included) can agree on who the (baby) picture is of. =) It was a pre-digital camera shot, so I’ll have to go dig up my negatives or photo bundles to see where that picture fits in.

Crazy huh?

And what’s crazier?…Lots being lost…

Losing my hair in copious amounts,
Losing weight, unfortunately not in copious amounts,
Losing sleep, because a certain baby is up many times during the night. But he smiles when he wakes up, so I guess that’s ok.

And here’s the worst…

Losing brain cells, slowly but surely:

I’m SO embarrassed but here’s the confession….

I cannot remember my baby’s first name!!!

I am NOT kidding you. It’s been 3 days now, that I’ve been wrecking my brain. I haven’t asked my children or MS dad because I would REALLY like to figure this out myself. Ironically, the name that sticks in my mind is the one that we eventually decided against. (At least I think we did.)

Goodness, how bad is this? Forgetting your child’s name? In my defence, the children all have 2 English names and a Chinese name. Multiply that by 6 and that’s 18 names I have to remember. So I’m just forgetting 1 out of 18. hahaha.

If you don’t hear from me by next week, put me out of my misery and tell me my child’s first name, ok?


  1. you can put his Aunt in the bad books too….

  2. I cheated and searched for your baby announcement on my email account.
    It was not what I originally thought

  3. I *think* I’ve figured it out….and it’s the name I thought we’d decided NOT to use. oops.. Maybe that’s why we put it as the first name – we liked the meaning.

    My bad.
