Last week we re-started the life of two: Sofia and me. It went quite well. She’s in a stage that is so easy to be with, mostly reasonable, plays alone well and just enjoys having my company.
I had a dentist appt on Tuesday which surprised me with headphone for music & sunglass for the light during the procedure. So considerate! 🙂
but the after pain was unavoidable and lasted for almost a week 😦 bummer!
This week we started the “tradition” of taking Sofia’s outfit first thing in the morning and she is very collaborative 🙂
she likes to snack during the ride and I’ve been giving her pine nuts. They’re great source of healthy fat and probably one of the few nuts/seeds safe for toddler to eat by themselves. She loves it!
I had Friday off and enjoyed every minute of it! I did manicure at home with these new summer colors
a massage with my favorite massage therapist that happened to be an old asian man
a lot of reading before I passed out and took a long and rejuverating nap
when I went to pick Sofia in the afternoon, I found a lovely gift for Star as father’s day present
an even bigger surprise: Sofia started to walk normal again. Since the cast of taken away, she has been walking as if the cast was still on, on her tippie toe. But that day, the teachers practiced with her how to walk with the feet and she started to do it when someone holds her hand. Wooooo!!!!!!!! And by Monday, she’s fully recoverd! Soooo happy!!!!
We went for a short ride once we arrived home
On Saturday we dressed up and went to the market
She insists to put her shoes on by herself
we had fun at the market and later at WF and Tj’s and bought a lot of food
we spent the afternoon at home, I did some computer work while Sofia snacked the rice cake with me
after a long nap (2.5 hrs) for both of us, she played at her desk while I continued with the reading
and then just before the sunset we went to the play ground
on Sunday we went to the church
I think Sofia started to get used to the sunday routine
after church, she took a catnap on the ride
to carters. She eagerly wanted to try that sunglass
we had lunch
and another long nap! What a life changing experience is that she takes >2 hrs nap nowadays.
once when was up, we went to a friend’s house for BBQ and some playtime
she was not friendly at all with Chumei, she didn’t like that I was holding another baby.
overall we had an easy, relax and fun weekend. I love having Star here but I must say I also enjoy having “girls” time alone with Sofia. She’s just a joy!
breakfast has been: homemade black & soy bean milk + panini with cheeese and egg/turkey
loving the melted cheese
took lunch to work a couple of times: a salad of lettuce, golden beets, tomato, grilled chicken, roasted zucchini, brown/black rice with honey dijon dressing
dinners: stir-fry rice with assorted veggies and eggs
topped with avocado and milk salsa (I’m obsessed with it!)
salad made with lettuce, artichoke, tomato, avocado, black bean and salsa
with chips (didn’t like these much!)
sauteed bell pepper, onion, celery and mushroom with basil + brown/black rice
a weekend meal: black bean, avocado and hummus quesadilla + salad
snack that I liked a lot: these fig bars that the church had. I need to buy some, they’re really good. Sofia ate the whole bar while we were at the service. I was so intrigued that I grabbed one afterwards, and finished it in 5 seconds. 😉
Q: what’s your favorite summer color? salad dressing?
