A documentation of Am’s faces

She loves drawing sad faces.
Don’t ask me why. I’m trying to figure that out too.
Anyway, here’s a series of documentation over the past 2 months.

Now at 31 months, my little girl is really an opinionated little someone.

The other day, we had a parent-teacher’s meeting,
the teacher described her as “interesting” as Am would only comply with the school’s activities on days when she felt like it.
On days when she didn’t felt like it, no one could force her.
And they realized that she loves ATTENTION.
While the rest of the children sits on the floor,
the teacher mentioned that Am would choose to “stand out” from the rest by sitting on a chair.

Her report card had a particularly comment that tickled me.
“In the process of things, Amelia would suddenly stop everything she is doing, take a walk around and look at her friends.”

Anyway, lesser words from me and I let the pictures do the talking as I document Am’s growth.


Learning alphabets through art.


Getting all mudded up but enjoying the mess.



This inspirational quote that I’ve just design in HelloAm, sums up EVERYTHING.
