January Fun

A look back at the little moments that made January 2019 fun. First, some photos:

 And a video. Nyan made a sort of airplane out of a delivery box:

More pictures:

Doing some homework:

The shopping mall down the street has replaced an empty storefront with a little play area, featuring a swing. A bit odd, but fun:

And finally: Nyan (and Daddy!) trying to breakdance. Failing, but trying.

December Fun and Games

Random shots and video from the final month of 2018:

One afternoon, down by the pool, we ran into the little two-year-old girl who lives across the hall. She was on her way to the playground, so Nyan decided to play Big Brother and play with her a bit. It was a nice blast from the past, returning to the playground where he used to play every single night.

Still more photos:

And finally, a trio of videos showing our boy at his happy-footed best.

A Month of Summer

July was an awesome month, filled with travels and day camps, but it was also filled with lots of smaller moments. There wasn’t a lot of stress – it was summertime, remember? – but there was a lot of fun. Here’s some of it.

One Sunday evening, we went to the Singapore Botanic Gardens for a free concert by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. There was a picnic, there was cotton candy, there was music. Nice.

Another evening, we went to our neighborhood trattoria, where they know and love Nyan. The pizza chef invited him back to make his own pizza!

Some random pics:

When Nyan was in utero, and when he was a baby, Daddy would read him the Dr Seuss book, “Oh Baby the Places You’ll Go” nearly every night. (It was a pre-birth gift from his cousin Mia.) Now that he’s a big boy, he reads it himself.

More photos:

Telling a story in the midst of doing abacus homework:

And more photos:

One day, Nyan decided he would draw up some instructions to remind Mommy how to play. We’re not entirely sure what he means here, but the sentiment is nice.


Robotic rattlesnake in progress:

The same snake a week later, with a little technical issue too (plus a display of one of Nyan’s most annoying habits, to be frank – always blaming other people for problems that sometimes aren’t anyone’s fault.)

One last batch of photos:

Goofball showing us what he was calling the “fart dance.” Have we mentioned that Nyan is a seven year old boy?

Yup, it was a good month.

It Was a Very Good Month

We had a lot of fun in June 2018, as we’ve seen. Here are some more moments:

On the last day of school, classes let out at midday. In the afternoon, Mommy volunteered to take Nyan and Jayden to the Natural History Museum. Predictably, they had a blast.







Some random photos from the month:







Nyan, running around a play area at the airport while waiting for Mommy to land:

And still more pictures:

February Fun

February might be the shortest month, but we sure did pack a lot of fun into those 28 days! Here’s a look back at some of the smaller (and goofier) moments of the month, through both pictures and videos.

Nyan Thomas, engineer: During the spring tide in early February, the sea water (we’re a good three-quarters of a mile inland) backed up the drainage canals and caused minor flooding along the road behind our place. Climate change and rising sea levels are real. In any case, it made an impression on Nyan, as I think this monologue is him devising ways to deal with climate change-related flooding.

Here’s Nyan and Jayden, hiding under the covers and giggling. Caution: this video contains lots of young-boy shrieks.

They tore down the sprawling garden shop across the street from us and are throwing up some high-rise condos. We have a front-row seat to watch (and hear) the pile driving, which we do pretty much every morning.

Presenting…. the Merlion!

Wondering what books to order for his school’s Book Week, and also wondering what books Jayden will order.

Just being silly:

His latest creation at Lego Robotics: an electric guitar:

And finally: dancing to the credits of a movie:

Hot Fun in the Summertime

What a month August turned out to be. New school, a great beach trip, Monster Jam… But of course there were lots of smaller moments too. Let’s take a look.

First, though, let’s look at some art work from the month of August. He’s getting ever more detailed with his drawings. And he decided he wanted to “make his own book” which means copying the pictures and words from one of his books (“The Snail and the Whale”). Did a pretty good job too!

Let’s see some other random fun:

We found an Italian restaurant with a huge play area outside. Including this trampoline:

More pictures:

Bouncing and babbling on the elevator:

And one last batch of photos. What a month, indeed!

Sweet Home Singapore

After a month of traveling, we got back to Singapore in late June. There was some jetlag that had Nyan and Daddy up at 3am several nights in a row, but we made the most of it, including a 90-minute stroll around the quiet neighborhood one night.

Nyan continues to be quite creative, whether he’s drawing or building things with Legos or just laying out his toys in creative ways:

Finally, some random photos from in and around Singapore in the month of June. Massages from Mommy, hugs from classmates and more!

And being a little silly outside our condo one evening.
