After a low-key weekend, our schedule got packed up again last weekend. Well… life of two kids just got interesting. First few recap of past few weeks
Sofia had a birthday party at her school on her actual birthday (9/26).
we sing a song, all her classmates gave her either a hug/kiss/good luck, and we had chocolate cake.
but then the teacher told me she lost the pics of that day so we had another party last week… the teachers brought cupcakes for the kids
this girl had two chocolate cupcakes with frosting and all.
Lizzy is loving mama’s milk. She’s taking 6-7 oz. twice a day while I’m at work and could probably take another one if we let her. To save her appetite for when I’m back home, grandma gives her 4-5 oz. instead.
she’s so happy these days… smiling at us all the time as long as her tummy is full
oh… she loves exploring with her mouth
I took Sofia to have dinner with a friend one Friday as “girls’ night out”, she loved it!
had adult-like meal and finished it all
she had shrimp with grits and I had sea scallop with corn, mushrooms and spinach. Delicious both of them.
she behaved really well during dinner time while I chat with my friend
post running fuel lately: toasts + eggs + goat cheese.
want to eat this face too!
I took a Friday off to relax after the weekend of Sofia’s birthday party which left me exhausted. So Tony took Sofia to daycare by taking the metro. Sofia really liked the experience and asked for more.
Last week’s lunch at work: quinoa + cauliflower/eggplant/zucchini/tofu cooked in tahini/miso/ginger sauce. YUM~
Saturday: Tony and I went to IIF to see my advisor giving a talk. It was really interesting. And meeting with my advisor was even better! I missed her and it was really nice to reconnect. We might visit her in Boston this coming Thanksgiving.
Then I took Sofia to ballet class. After lunch and nap, we were ready to go to a colleague’s birthday party with my girl
again she got her face painted in butterflies.
Sunday started with 10 miles run for me and a swimming class for Sofia. After that, we went to do groceries with grandparents. Lunch, nap, and had friends over to make and eat wonton together.
Monday started with a BIG EVENT, starting solid for Lizzy.
we introduced kabocha mixed with breast milk.
she DID great! making funny face and finished 1/4 cup worth of food.
then we went to apple picking
first time carrying her and she didn’t complain
unfortunately the kind of apple we liked (cameo) was out… so we didn’t buy any but we did have a lot of fun. Sofia had fun eating apples on the spot and feeding animals
My friend Susan also took her family, so it was a nice family trip.
Loving the pumpkin season!!!
