Life: Nov 2014 -Jan 2015


Although life has been busy and evolving lately… I’m back to the blog world! Let’s first do a quick recap of life through the life of Sofia, who has became a little person who has very clear idea of what she wants, expresses them very clearly with her multi-language skills (Spanish, english, mandarin and shanghainese), deeply obsessed with her mom, naughty and playful with dad and grandma.

She got used to her new class and friends.

Eating has been a pain for me for a long time. Every evening, after a long day of work, I’d spend 1 hour to feed her dinner, playing all kinds of toys and book reading to keep her entertained, which leaves me exhausted and stressed out. So few days ago, I decided it was enough. I needed to stop doing that because dinner time is supposedly to be peaceful, relaxing, and not stressful moment for anyone. So, the new way one is: I provide variety  (a mix of new, old and safe food), and she decides how/what to eat. And no toys. Maybe some TV sometimes. It has been working like wonders. No more stress for me, and she enjoys food time too. Surprisingly, she usually finishes them all and even asks for more :shock:! Hope we continue like this.

she really has great time at school. They role-play every day.. and I caught a little fire-lady the other day. So cute!

My sunshine, I love you so much! Don’t grow so fast, allow me to savor you slowly.
