Meals

Lily is eating pretty much everything nowadays.

Sometimes it’s just hard trying to figure out what exactly to feed her.

She eats 4 full meals every day.

BREAKFAST. She usually has oatmeal with milk, banana, cinnamon and honey with some fresh fruit (usually grapes) on the side. Sometimes instead of oatmeal, she will have a 1 egg omelet, some toast and fresh fruit.

LUNCH. Noodles with olive oil and parmesan cheese, mac and cheese, grilled cheese, soups, cheese and turkey sandwich, sweet potatoes and other veggies, etc. And then of course, fresh fruit on the side.

AFTERNOON LUNCH/SNACK. Either a waffle with butter and a drizzle of syrup with fruit or yogurt with fruit.

DINNER. Most of the time it’s just like lunch. Noodles, soups, veggies, etc

SNACKS. Raisins, baked apples and fruit.

How many meals do your little ones eat?

What do you usually feed them?

I’m always looking for new ideas. 🙂

My dearest Lily,

Bedtime with you at night has been so wonderful lately.

Already washed up and in your pajamas, you help clean up your toys while we sing “clean up, clean up, everybody everywhere…”

You have dinner.

You kiss pai goodnight.

We go into the bedroom and lie on our bed.

You lean against two big pillows, I lean against the other two big pillows next to you and we read two books.

We read Goodnight moon and The going to bed book.

After we read the books, we turn off the lights and go to the window where we say goodnight to the moon, the trees, the lights and mama.

When I say “goodnight mama”, you give me a kiss.

I then turn on your night music and we hug and slow dance for a bit.

You then point towards your crib and I lay you down.

I stay next to you for a bit until you fall asleep.

It has become so easy and wonderful.

It might change but I hope not.

You are so wonderful.

Love you,

mama

The Sanchez playhouse

Yesterday Lily and I had a visit from aunt Min that spontaneously turned into a visit back at her house.

I love going to the Sanchez residence. It’s like Peewee’s Playhouse!

There are all sorts of fun stuff around.

Super cool furniture, mirrors, toys, art, chickens…

Aunt Min and uncle Oli made a great dinner and we all just hung out and caught up on life and Lily. 😉

It was a great day. (thanks Min, Oli and Lulu!)

This weekend we will start celebrating Will’s birthday which is on monday.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!!
