Food and Feeding

At home Emma is still eating yummy homecooked porridge, and I’ve noticed that she loves it when I add millet into the porridge.  It’s usually either chicken, pork or fish porridge with some vegetables for good measure.  She is definitely ready for rice too, so she may join us at the dining table soon. Yay!!

She loves her animal biscuits and the “rare and occasional” french fry.

For Ethan’s 9th birthday this year, we decided to have a cozy celebration at home. Hannah suggested having an Amazing Race birthday party, and what is a race without sharing it with friends, eh?  So we said he could invite his best friend.  So I planned the “amazing race” for two teams: Ethan & Hannah in one team and Josha & Elisha in another.

Unfortunately, Elisha was not well on that day, so we bended the rules a little and the two teams were then Ethan, Hannah and Josha in one team, and Peter and Emma in another. LOL!
The food our contestants ate to fuel up before the race was flagged off – homemade lum mee with all the yummy condiments:

She had been waiting anxiously for this moment since her bottom two incisors started wiggling about 2 weeks ago.  And just yesterday while we were out shopping, the inevitable happened.  A milestone for my little snowflake Hannah.

Just 3 weeks shy of her 6th birthday, she excitedly announced that her tooth had fallen out.  I was queueing up to pay for our purchases when it happened, so Daddy gave her some tissues and napkins to clean up and wrap her tooth carefully.

See how tiny it is?

When we got home, Hannah wrote a short note to the Tooth Fairy and at night she placed it under her pillow.

She woke up excitedly today, and showed me the note the Tooth Fairy had left her.  She even took it to school to show her teacher!

She showed Ethan the note too, and when Ethan saw it, he said, “It looks like Mommy’s writing!” 😛

On scorching hot and humid Chinese New Year-like weather days like these, we love staying indoors, just hanging out with each other.

To keep extra cool, we love lying down on the floor …. and looking adorable!
