Follow the big brother

I’m very glad the cousins are starting to play together. Although they are less than 2 months apart and roughly the same size, somehow they know among themselves that Samuel is the big brother and Sophia is the little sister. Samuel would hold Sophia’s hand and bring her towards toys. He would also hold her hand and bring her on a long walk, until he spotted a playground, that is, at which point he tried for half a second to drag her along as he dashed towards the playground but sensing that she is moving towards the playground with much less enthusiasm and speed, let go of the little sister and made a beeline for the playground himself.

Don’t you just love watching kids and their innocent and oh-so-adorable acts?




Cousin Samuel

The past 2 weekends Sophia has been going to her elder cousin, Samuel‘s place to play. Curious enough, the first week she caught the flu from Samuel’s dad and the following week she passed it back to Samuel.

Sophia seems to really look up to her big brother who’s the dare devil dashing around. In front of him she’s all meek and mild and has none of of the bossiness that she displays at home. The only time she get back to her bossy self is when we put her in the room to sleep and she runs towards the door repeating over and over “ma-co ni” (it took me a long time to figure out she meant balcony).

Everybody loves Grandpa


Pushing cousin samuel along – very fun as long as Samuel doesn’t suddenly push the car backwards into Sophia


Samuel’s teacher called Sophia “didi” (younger brother) when she was introduced as his cousin.
