Life & Eats: week 6/9


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! ๐Ÿ™‚

but the after pain was unavoidable and lasted for almost a week ๐Ÿ˜ฆ bummer!

This week we started the “tradition” of taking Sofia’s outfit first thing in the morning and she is very collaborative ๐Ÿ™‚

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 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

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

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!

Food:

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

IMG_1424

dinners: stir-fry rice with assorted veggies and eggs

IMG_1457

topped with avocado and milk salsa (I’m obsessed with it!)

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.ย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰
