I just love these photos. (tho they are a little sloppy since her t-shirt is unbuttoned at the top and she's not wearing any pants). It somehow gives me this warm fuzzy feeling deep inside. My favourite is the last photo cos she looks so cheeky!!

"Let me try the innocent look"
"Nope, mummy's still not pleased. Time for my fool-proof weapon"
"Big smile for mummy....."
"Yup, that worked !!! Mummy's smiling now. Phew."

One thing I noticed during the trip was that DSLRs seem to be the "in" thing. Saw at least 7 groups/pairs shooting here and there, during our short trip. Alas... I couldn't join in as hubby left mine at home. (aarghhhh!!!) I don't like having a post without a photo, so here's one taken with his handphone. I like the old-style high chair here-

When we first brought out the walker about a month ago, it was too "advanced" for Elyssa. Her little legs couldn't catch up to the speed of the walker when it's being pushed. (the wheels go quite fast)
We gave it another try last week.. This time, she could keep up! It was so funny to see the first few attempts. Her eyebrows were all furrowed up with concentration. This was accompanied by the "ahhh ahhh ahhhh" sound effect as she made it back and forth the room. That night, we had to keep "rescuing" her i.e. when she reached the end of the room, we had to turn the walker for her.
The next morning, I let her play with the walker again. I was really surprised that this time she could manoeuvre herself better. Just before she reached the end of the room, she stopped, move the walker backwards a little, turned the walker to one side, then off she went again. She went round and round the living room 5 times! Funny thing is that she can avoid furniture/wall quite well, but when it's a person blocking her, she expects the person to give way.
Hubby managed to capture a video of her using his handphone. (need to turn off sound since the background noise is quite bad)
