Life lately

Since Lizzy is still so little, we can’t do much activities outside the house. We did take her out a couple of times, but I notice that she doesn’t get good rest while on the road. So we try to minimize that. When we go out, either my mom stays with Lizzy, or Tony stays with her.

Sofia has been an incredible sister. Although we’ve given a lot of attention to Lizzy, she never showed jealousy. She’s always been very understandable. Every time that I tell her that mommy can’t play with her at that moment because I had to feed Lizzy, she never complained. She’s also very eager to help. She’d bring the nursing pillow whenever I nurse Lizzy. If we’re downstairs and Lizzy cries while sleeping, Sofia wants to check on her for all of us. She also loves giving a lot of kisses and hugs to Lizzy, and insists every night that Lizzy watches her eat dinner.

I am aware that I might be diverted some attention away from Sofia, so I’m making extra effort to make quality time with her whenever I can.

I took her to a ballet class with her best friend one day and she enjoyed so much.

She’s so cute in the tutu. I signed up classes for her already starting in July, I’m sure she will enjoy it. This girl loves dancing. Whenever we put music, she wants to dance.

the first thing she did when arriving home was to show her face to Lizzy

We had her friend Laura over for dinner one day. These two girls know how to entertain themselves alone.

Almost every weekend, my mom will take Sofia to the mall for some window shopping

I’m so grateful to have my mom here who can devote 100% of her attention to Sofia.

Sofia started to really like dolls. She’d grab my nursing pillow and her doll and pretend that she’s feeding her baby.

She loves to imitate everything that mommy does. 🙂

She started to really like posing for pictures. She has almost a daily photo session with grandma at the backyard.

We had a dentist appointment. It was the third time and she almost didn’t cry! YAY!!! I love that the place is set up for kids, all kind of distractions for them to cooperate.

she loves going to playgrounds. She’s tiny but fearless. She’d try any equipment, even not age appropriate.

Summer is her and we’ve been having weekly BBQs, the quickest and easiest meal ever.

To celebrate Lizzy’s one month, we went to Yayla bistro, a mediterranean turkish restaurant.

I feel blessed to have such beautiful family. Two lovely girls, one loving husband and the best mom in the world, all with me everyday!!!

The food was delicious! It started with a turkish bread with olive spread.

we ordered an assorted appetizers. My favorite was dolma.

as main dish, we also ordered an assorted meat (beef, chicken, lamb and grounded beef). It came with rice and grilled vegetables. The best was the beef but the chicken was really tender and juicy too.

and the flatbread as side.

We got a free dessert to share: a turkish rice pudding. Really sweet but tasty. Sofia had almost half of it.

So… that’s what we’ve been doing other than admiring this face
