This 'n that

The pool is finally installed!! We had "issues" with the installers so I am just so happy to see it done. Stephan is working on a deck now so it looks like the yard will be in construction for another couple of weeks. I am so looking forward to having fun in the pool with the kids this summer!

This is my favorite time of the evening ... kiddos are sleeping!!
She was sleeping with her doggie over her face (like usual), that's why it's so red. lol!

Naomi had her 18 month check-up today (tho technically she's 19 months + 4 days). She is now 33 inches tall putting her in the 75th percentile for height! She's not one of those tiny Chinese babies after all!
And here's Francis fast asleep .... ahhhhhh

Friday I received some more bento goodies by mail! One is animal shapers for rice and the other is little flower shaped bowls with matching picks. Can't wait to play with these!! :o)

Bento + Misc

I still haven't received my bento boxes from Japan but I am having fun with the accessories!! Unfourtunately Ichiban Kan doesn't ship to Canada :o(
Naomi loves the little animal picks!

Here is my take on a bento lunch for Francis:
Ham 'n cheese sammi, strawberries and raspberries, a pepper flower, a cheese butterfly, a yogurt tube and some cookies.

And for moi!!
Chinese dumplings, a bunny bun filled with bean paste, edamamme, steamed broccoli, peppers, a cherry tomato and fresh strawberries!

Oh, and for those who are having fun with bento as well, I found these markers that you can use to write on food. They're called Foodwriters and I found them at a kitchen gadget specialty store. Enjoy!

Mother's day

Here are a couple of pictures from mother's day. Naomi looked adorable in her little smocked dress but she was so hyper that it was a real challenge getting a good picture. I really wanted a nice picture of Francis and Naomi together but as you can see below Naomi just wouldn't sit still.

3 Word Sunday


These are Naomi's first pigtails. I have been waiting months for this!!! I think they are adorable. I found some teeny elastics and still had to wrap them around 10 times!! Naomi's hair is getting long (but thin) in the back but still nothing in the front, kinda like mullet (business in the front, party in the back...lol) She didn't seem to mind me yanking at her hair and she didn't try and pull them out so I think I will do them again tomorrow!!
