Little Luke "Skywalker"

He's Two!

In case you don't already know, our Little Skywalker turns two today!

Last week, I have spent almost 4-5 days reviewing, rotating, copying and burning all the photos that we've took since Little Skywalker was born. Little did I know that I would end up with five DVDs with a total capacity of over 22GB! And that was only up to May, 2006!

While I was reviewing all the photos one-by-one, I almost re-live the past two years of our lives with Little Skywalker. The day when he turned our lives upside-down two years ago seems like yesterday. I could still remember when the doctor broke the news to me about his chances of survival at the NICU. I could still remember how we shed our tears every time we visited him at the NICU. I could still feel the heartache looking at all the tubes connecting to him as well as all the bruises as a result of all the blood test etc. I still remember praying and saying all the rosaries when I was all alone at home waiting for J and our baby to discharge.

By the way, you can read more about this in the Miracle Baby section located at the side bar...

I still can't believe that it has been two years already! Our tiny little squid (referring to his cone-shaped head when he was born) has already grown up to be a little naughty monkey! He is now almost three times his size when he was born! He is yapping non-stop all day long! He is constantly running around and bumping his head! He climb up the stairs like an adult now! He walks by himself whenever we bring him out! He chooses what he wants to watch on television and DVDs! And yes, he is still breastfeeding! LOL!

Throughout the two years, J and I really enjoyed every little moment with Little Skywalker. Although we would very much like him to remain two years old forever, we know he will eventually grow out of his joyful and innocent childhood. Before we know it, he will be going to school, go through puberty, get his driving license, get a job, have tonnes of girl friends, get hitched and have his own little Little Skywalkers instead!

We are very grateful to have a happy and active child like Little Skywalker. Although he can be a pain in the ass neck at times, but we learn how to adapt to his unpredictable behavior. In the process, we learn to have more patience with the little monkey. I have always believed that little kids are innocent and do not know what they are doing most of the times. As parents, we have to out-smart them and NOT over-power them by force. That is why we try our best to let him explore the world by himself, makes his own mistakes and do everything at his own pace. At the end of the day, we hope that he will grow up to be whoever he wants to be, and not a clone or shadow of either of his parents.

FYI, Little Skywalker got his first birthday present from his auntie Blogie-talkie two days ago...

Happy Birthday son!
