Can you believe it? Your favorite blogger’s kid (ahem) is all of 4 as of a week ago? That’s close to 4 years of reading about this random child that you do not know of on my blog and that’s 4 years of me putting up with her, haha. Man, that’s 4 years worth of poop cleaning come to think of it! The last week of her threes were indeed horrendous as she was acting up as though to say hey, it’s the very last week of my Terrible Threes so I’m going to make the most of it before I move to to my Fabulous Four stage. Or do they call it Frightening Four???
I somehow think its the latter.
*Que some sort of horror music*
Anyhos, birthday gifts -we all love em aye? What more a child! So here’s some photos of the lil munckins opening up her presents and boy was she well behaved that day.
On to-do list after breakfast on my birthday: why, open them presents of course!
Yes! Bunny pants, coz I love bunnies and all things cuddly and fluffyyy.
Lego set from Sairah’s buddy Krisha.
The smirk says it all because she requested this gift from grandma.
And as they say, a grandma will climb and move mountains if she could just to go find the damn golf set. In this case, it was Toys R Us where she had to look it up herself despite the SA telling her they didn’t have such toy. Malaysian customer service at its best
Ish, not too sure who’s more excited to get the golf set. That’s how sexy the husband looks in the mornings by the way, hah.
A stroller, just because.
She also received some gifts via post…
Mr.Postman brought me these?? Now I understand why mom loves getting parcels…coz it IS exciting!
I guess the expression says it all…
Frozen dolls all thanks to her Aunty.
Peppa pig jammies from the husband’s cousin…
And every four year old needs a ceramic cup and bowl to eat and drink from. Like an adult! After all, turning 4 means saying goodbye to the milk bottle *fingers crossed soon*!
And a parcel from good ol UK thanks to Aunty Wylane.
Last but not least, Sairah received the best kind of gift which was grandma’s presence in Australia. Since these two were missing each other terribly, Sairah’s mommy and Aunty decided to fly grandma here (spoken like as though we own a private jet yo, haha) for this very special mission to spend time with the birthday girl. What can I say except, her expression when she saw her grandma at the airport was absolutely priceless and how we wish grandpa was around for the occasion as well.
We wanted to do something simple and low key so when the birthday girl requested to go to the beach for her birthday we immediately thought of Geelong.
Stopped by the Cheesecake Shop to pick up a cake before the trip. And how many of you swear this set up looks familiar? That’s because this franchise was actually opened back in Malaysia MANY years ago and I have strong memories walking into the shop one too many times with mom back in Taman Desa for their delicious cheesecakes. That’s how I got fat back in the day. True story Wait, I”m still fat because of damn cakes!
Walked into cheesecake shop and came out with a mud cake, coz we’re rebels like that.
The journey to Geelong was absolutely a scenic one with these yellow flowers out in bloom so can you imagine seeing these beauties a good 15km of the journey? Breath-takingly beautiful.
Went to a friend’s house first so we decided to cut her cake there. Friend was kind enough to get some balloons for Sairah to make it a lil festive.
Let’s cut and eat this sucker up now!
Then it was off to lunch.
And again, cannot praise my love for Geelong.
We were lucky the weather was just about right…with sun out in the sky with some cool winds which made it the perfect day to be out and about at the beach.
4 years of doing, as what Sairah calls it the ‘up and down’ as a workout for her old man. Check out this video I took some 2 years ago when that form of exercise seemed easier then, hahaha.
Nothing like a good catch the ball when at the beach I reckon.
And goes without saying, nothing makes this child happier than to be at the beach and it was definitely a good way to spend her fourth birthday.
If we could only live nearby the beach…
I shall end this post with a short video of a 4 year old Sairah reading a story. Yup, it’s definitely going to be an interesting year ahead for all of us!
