We put the Christmas tree in a new area in preparation for a new start in 2012.  We are blessed to have a great year in 2011.  Mama took the time off and has been taking Adrian to go skating almost everyday during the holiday.

Hoping for a great year again in 2012 and Adrian remains healthy and happy as always!

What a surprise to learn that one of the QMH doctors called our family in HK on Adrian’s progress, we then replied by sending an email to his doctors there to update them on how Adrian has been doing in the past 2.5 years. Looking back on how fast Adrian was diagnosed and received treatments back then, we are truly thankful for their professionalism. We appreciate their thoughts for reaching out to us and hope we’d continue to bring them good news on Adrian.

It's the second year we received complimentary tickets to the Nutcracker Dress Rehearsal. Adrian being a year older, he seemed to be more interested in the show and understands the plot better.  What a festive way to start the holiday season.

It’s the regular 6  months check up day for Adrian at Sick Kids.  Papa took him to the ultrasound and then met with Dr Baruchel.  Everything went well and he’s scheduled to come back in May 2012.

We had the first parent teacher interview this evening with Adrian’s class teachers. We were ecstatic to hear from the teacher that Adrian did exceptionally well at school. He’s progressing well on his Readers, will soon be introduced to rhyming words etc. The teacher also had him started writing story book (i.e. a page where Adrian will draw a picture on top and write a sentence or two at the bottom) and it’s not the first time we heard others’ comments (from both his class & Art class teachers) that Adrian is very creative and imaginative. In terms of Maths, Adrian has done all the basics and skip counting and is now moving onto the stamp game where addition will be introduced. Overall, the teacher is very pleased with Adrian’s progress at school. And we are glad to know his social circle has broadened – apart from hanging onto his best friend in class all the time, he’s having a bigger social circle and is making a few other new friends at school in this new school year.
