In Taiwan – Part 1 November 23, 2008

Filed under: Family,Layla — babytan @ 7:56 pm

Cindy and Layla arrived safely in Taiwan and according to her, Layla was very well behaved on the plane and was a darling…. the flight attendant even held Layla for like 15mins in the kicthen area while they chatted.

Here are some photos of Layla in Taiwan. (since Cindy didn’t have space to carry our camera there, she had to use her mom’s).



Grandma, Great Grandpa and Layla. That’s a red packet from Great Grandpa!!! THANK YOU!!!!




 Grand Auntie( Grandma’s older Sister ) and Layla

 Lazing at home with Grandma and her boyfriend.



 Hmmm…. Layla doesn’t seem to like him . That’s the Boyfriends son and his first attempt at carrying a baby. (keep trying though .. you’ll eventually get it)




 Cindy’s long time friend, Huey Ying( i think that’s how it spelt) came over to visit!!


Now’s we’re just missing a picture of Cindy’s sister with Layla…..


My last day with Layla November 18, 2008

Filed under: Layla — babytan @ 4:42 am

Sigh.. Today was Layla and Cindy’s last day in NY as they headed off to Taiwan tonight for a LONG 2 1/2 – 3 Months!!! I was just telling some of my friends about how I was begginning to get a sense of FATHER, DAUGHTER relationship building. Layla has finally begun to respond to our voices by laughing and smiling more. She also shys away and turns her head bashfully into the chest of whoever is holding her.

I know I will miss both Cindy and Layla alot.. So hopefully Cindy sends me photos to update me with what ever they are up to over there!

First off, my friend Melody and her husband Randall from S’pore came over for a visit!!  Layla was thrilled with their visit and was smiling so much with them!! (ofcourse they were also great baby handlers)




Here’s Me with a pleasant morning wake up!




Ansd yes … she likes my facial hair.





Layla was so busy…she even managed to squeeze a visit to Eric Christopher Downs today!! He was a Darling and was so nice and Mellow!!






Layla on a bumbo November 16, 2008

Lately while we have our dinner, we put Layla into the Bumbo right next to the Food on our Table…. That way she’s more calm and just watches us eat. Thanks again Ally for this suggestion.


Here’s a wind up for a sneeze


and….. there it goes!!

Been lazy lately about posting stuff.. so here’s some candid pics of Layla.



It’s been a while since she has slept on my shoulders so I asked Cindy to take one for the record. And Yes I am growing a Beard for a contest at my work place. Check it out here



Another one of her .. sigh… wished I could be like her and sleep without any worries.



Layla sitting on a Bumbo seat that our dear friends the Bruno’s got for her.



Lately I have been carrying her in differnt ways so i could use my other arm… this one is called “The Chinese Acrobat”



While Mommy just stepped away while changing her diapers halfway to take out the laundry, Layla had turned herself over from the back position to the tummy position… all on her Own!!
