When it comes to food, these two make good partners in crime. They are always asking for food, demanding snacks, using each other as leverage ("koko has & I also want!"), and these days, J3 has been teaching her which are the best snacks & how to get them ("J4, you can open the fridge, it's inside!", but he quietly keeps clear, so he wouldn't get into trouble while his sister tries to raid the fridge). Never a dull moment with these two around, that's for sure!

I was busy in the kitchen this morning, when I suddenly realized the kids were really quiet. Went to check on them & found them all huddled together on the sofa, flipping through a photobook on our Germany stint a few years back. ❀️ I've been having a rather rough time the past few days, so the sight of them together like this really brought a smile to my face! (J4 only started crying at the end, because she wanted to flip the pages of the book herself but her brothers didn't let her as they were afraid she might spoil the book. πŸ˜…swipe to see the before... )

Is it just me, or is the two to four year old stage one of the cutest ever, but also one of the most exhausting & needy stages too? These two have been running us ragged over the long festive weekend, but I think I will miss this stage when it passes (not the tantrums though!).

At a friend's home yesterday. ❀️ I realize this photo more or less captures the kids' personalities/interests: J1 is day-dreaming, J2 is fiddling (this round he was unfolding all the drink cartons), J3 is eating/drinking πŸ˜†, & J4 is swinging. I love how God made them all unique & special!

The best we could do for a we-fie on 初二! One kid wasn't very happy because he wanted to go off and tie knots using some leaves, but at least everyone is looking at the camera!
.
I think the younger ones are really enjoying CNY, especially the part where they get to stuff their faces with goodies (J3 is having the time of his life!), while the older boys are just ok to tag along without complaining. Whatever the case, I love this season where there is so much joy & festiveness in the air!

Celebrating Lunar New Year always reminds me of how very loved we all are. 😊

Just popping in to wish everyone a blessed Lunar New Year! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

No family photo for CNY yet, as the hubs was on call yesterday, & was away the whole of yesterday & only reached home an hour ago. Today, I am thankful for those who have had to work yesterday and will be working across this festive season to ensure the safety & comfort of everyone. It seems like last week when we had to call our gynae on CNY eve, because J4 decided she wanted to be a CNY baby!

[Loving this photo by @confettipeektures so much! J4 & I are in our new year outfits, while the boys are wearing last year's shirts so that they can twin with Papa. πŸ˜‰]

I am still not ready for Lunar New Year (the spring cleaning fever only hit me today 😬), but at least everyone's New Year clothes are ready!
.
I couldn't find non-cutesy dog prints, so I decided to go with foxes this round (close enough right?), & got MIL's tailor to sew matchy dresses for J4 (hers has darling little pearl buttons & a sash) and me. The boys have shirts in the same mint fox fabric, save for the hubs who opted out upon seeing the colour. 😬 J4 & I also have another matching set (swipe to see) in a navy fox print, & I am so happy because the tailor managed to follow my design to sew the cheongsam top with nursing access! πŸ˜‰
.
Here's wishing everyone a blessed time, gathering with family tonight over your reunion dinners!
.
[PS: I think next year we'll have to do lace or pandas, because I don't think there are any non-cutesy pig prints are there? πŸ€”]

A reminder to myself today: God's work in my family is never limited by my limitations. However, my limitations are necessary, because they are the very thing that draw me to Him. After all, would I be burdened enough to seek Him, if I was rocking parenting, if I could do it all, & accomplish all that I want to do?
.
My limitations of not enough time, of not enough patience, of not enough wisdom, of all those feelings like I am groping in the dark, they are reminders that I am but human. That I need to be content with those limitations & let God be God.
.
Social media has the dangerous effect of glossing over our limitations, & we are left thinking we always need to be more. Do more, get more me time, be more efficient, juggle more, strive more. But perhaps the answer to our stress & exhaustion isn't more, but less?

Brothers. ❀️
.
These two sometimes seem to enjoy getting on each other's nerves, & they can get into all out physical fights. πŸ˜… But as they grow older, I'm noticing the bond between them is a deeper, yet sweeter one. J2 looks up to his brother & would fight to protect him, while J1 is starting to recognize how he can have a positive influence on his brother & has been trying to help him. Just today, I discovered he had set up a reward points system for J2 to encourage him to finish his daily activities. Things like finishing his meals quickly & brushing his teeth are usually a constant battle, but with J1's chart, he's been happy to get them done (I hope it lasts though!). The irony is that J2 is a better navigator, so he's always the one bringing his older brother to Sunday School, since he has a better sense of direction. πŸ˜†
.
I think one of the most amazing things is seeing how God causes these bonds of brotherhood to grow & deepen, & I am so thankful we get to be a part of it. 😊
