Brief recap of 2011

Tentatively sticking my toes back into the pool of blogging...

Life has gotten away from me this year. Well, pretty much since Little Ping marched out onto the stage. The "baby" isn't much of a baby anymore: he's a toddling (at 14 months), loves-to-play-peek-a-boo, laughing...and SO easygoing...little boy. He's a bundle of sweetness who smells like oranges. And who naps and sleeps through the night. Alone in his crib. Who knew that I could have a child like other normal women?
Of course, he continued the tradition of Happy Vomiting, my cross to bear apparently, but after a long 8 months of puking up the contents of his stomach 30 times a day (not kidding), he has emerged on the other side, relatively unscathed.
He doesn't have very many words at the moment (sometimes says DaDDY (with emphasis on the -DDY), hi, and bye), but I figure he will get it down eventually. The Pinglet was similar and didn't really start talking until she was 2 1/2. All in English, just in time for her to go to Japanese kindy.
The Pinglet is now a 107cm (3'6") bundle of energy, who makes us laugh when she isn't driving us up a wall (ha). She had a lot of firsts this year, just like her brother: went to summer camp in the U.S., went swimming, started playing piano and doing gymnastics at school. She loves drawing and crafts, and still loves her PreCure, but has branched out into princesses and fairies as well.

The Pinglet has had a few health hiccups since the summer, which ensured that Ping and I were able to put all the doctors' children through college, but I think we're finally getting somewhere.
Wishing you all the best for a very happy 2012!
