Back to Blogging

I OOB (Out of Blogging) longer than expected. I scheduled to be OOB only on June 2th, which is Yifan’s birthday, but later, I missed the following few days. Don’t worry since it is not because of the sensitive day we just passed in China.

Xiaowei of came, and we spent the time together with other friends late at night. Then I was on the trip to Dishuihu, stayed there for one night, and just got back yesterday, and now, you see, I am back. I missed blogging on some important things and I will make it up later.

Happy 2 Year Birthday to Yifan

This entry was made up on June 7th, and dated back to June 2.

These are some photos of Yifan at his 2 year old birthday.

His mom tried to bake a birthday cake for him, but failed in the afternoon. Well. The cake tastes great, just strong in shape. Yifan didn’t seem to mind the shape, as long as it tasted good.

How Yifan Talks

Yifan was very quick to understand most things, but slower to talk. Now, he mastered many of the necessary words in daily conversation. The first English word he mastered two months ago was “Car”, since the pronunciation is much easier than the Chinese word “Che”. Well. We didn’t intentionally teach him English, and he just found out the easiest way to pronounce things. Like most of the word he mastered – he picked the easiest word to pronounce out of the whole words.

For example,

Like – Xi Huan – he don’t like to pronounce Xi, and just use Huan.

Happy – Gao Xing – he only say Xing

Cake – Dan Gao – and he says it as Gao…

To translate it into English, it is just like he don’t like to pronounce Happy, and only say: “Pay” to tell the same thing.

Yifan is so lovely! Why all the father on this planet thinks his own son is the best in this world?

Happy Children’s Day

Happy Children’s Day. We don’t prepare too much for Yifan on Children’s Day, because, Yifan is turning two years old tomorrow!

I will be OOB (Out of Blogging) tomorrow for the whole day (and out of office, and out of computer, and out of anything that I felt important most of my time), and stay with Yifan for the whole day. I believe he will be happy to have enough of his dad’s attention, which he recently demands a lot.

Happy birthday to Yifan.
