This funny girl was lying down on the floor relaxing. She must be very bored coz Mummy seldom bring her out shopping since Daddy was not around. Later in the day, I purposely put my t-shirt on her head and guess what she was happily balancing the t-shirt on her head like wearing a hat...hehe..Poor girl finding new ways to amuse me and herself.

Today we went to One Utama with sister. Gwen behaved quite well at the mall except for one minor tantrum while pushing the stroller. She was enjoying pushing the stroller and suddenly burst into a loud cry because her hands slipped from the handle..(unbelievable). We managed to calm her down by putting her hands back into position..hahah...Later I put her into the stroller but she was resisting to be put into the stroller. Me and sister have to use force to strap her down. After sister pushed her around the mall, this naughty girl was all cheers again. At least we managed to re-train her to sit in her stroller again coz everytime Daddy put her in the stroller she will sure put up a fight. Here are some pictures taken today.
Enjoy this video of Gwen dancing to the beat when we passed the stage with loud music at One Utama. So funny...
