A 9 month old baby!

Sunday today. We woke up to a beautiful morning with the sun shining bright on the magnificent white! The ground must have accumulated another 2-3 inches of  snow overnight. There were more flurries in the forecast – would be a pretty day, though it would be chilly with temperature in the negative (-5F, i.e., – 20C). It’s been a very snowy December in Chicago.

Micah is nine month old today! After breakfast, we all bundled up and headed out to the 9am service at church. It didn’t take that long for Chun Liang to remove the thick coat of snow that was still fresh, off the car. The alley where our parking space is was in need of a good shovel though so pulling the car out of our parking lot was quite a challenge.

Micah sat quietly in his car seat and watched on intently. Despite the fact that he was missing his morning nap (Sundays are “special”/non-routine days!), Micah seemed to understand that mom and dad were working on a serious task and were not to be disturbed. The snow and the cold were all in all still quite a new experience for little Micah.

As expected, we got to church late – arrived just in time to catch second half of the church service. There were flurries on the way home. Along with the bitterly cold wind, we just knew that we would stay in for the rest of the day!

So we stayed home after lunch. How we love just being cosy and warm and enjoying each other as a family! Here are some pictures of Micah while he played.

The Bean

So as I mentioned in my last post, we had Maureen (Christina’s former landlady) staying with us for a couple of weeks. We decided to take her out to the Millennium Park downtown. It was a pretty cold day so we layered up as much as possible. Micah looked really cute in his stroller, wrapped in a sea of blankets and hats with just his two eyes peeking out.

Surprisingly, there were still lots of people out and about despite the low temperature. The cloud gate sculpture (in the picture below) was pretty crowded, being one of the more interesting attractions at the park.

Micah Sitting Up

It has been a while since we posted anything. Micah has been keeping us pretty busy these last couple of months. He has started to eat solid foods pretty regularly now and enjoys making a mess in the dining room. His mid-morning and afternoon naps are pretty consistent for the most part although he still cries a little every time we put him down to bed. It’s like he doesn’t want to be left alone in his room.

Christina’s friend and former landlady, Maureen came over all the way from Southampton to visit us in November. We enjoyed having her over and we were able to do a little sightseeing around Chicago even though it was a little cold. We got out first major snowfall of the year the day after Maureen left for home, which was a good thing seeing as she doesn’t like snow very much at all. Anyway, we’ll have more pics of that soon.

In the meantime, here’s a couple of shots of Micah sitting up and playing all by himself. Doesn’t he look all grown up?
