so when it was time for our annual trip to the philippines, i was understandably worried about a similar experience. red is very assertive, especially for my attention. perhaps she feels she needs to compete with her elder sister. what she wants, she wants NOW.
whenever it's just the two of us though, she can be surprisingly zen. she managed to charm the skirts off our seat mates on this flight. they were all cooing about how well-behaved she is, and i had to keep my face straight when i replied with polite 'thank you's.
managed to squeeze in a couple of misadventures, one of which resulted in a day long recovery from a hangover.
tagaytay for lucy's lovely wedding. the little ones enjoyed the space, and i was very thankful lucy's sister had little ones as well -- so the band of shorties were doing their own thing while the grown-ups sorted out last minute details. we struggled to put red to sleep on our first night as she was just so excited by the energy around the house.
