Swiss chards and buckwheat noodles

I realize how mundane my blog must have become for my non-parent friends around the world since Mia's birth. At least for the time being, instead of writing exotic travel tales from Shanghai, mysterious and beautiful photos of Israel and concerts in various parts of Europe, I talk about my daily life at home in Tiana, and which teeth may (or may not!) be coming through for Mia, and what new food she may (or may not) be liking.

So here we go:
Uncle Goel's visit :)
alien food
strange color for facial hair, wouldn't you say?point of no return

celebrating being a girl

I've been so concentrated on being a gender-unbiased parent, exposing Mia to all types of toys (instead of just plush animals and so far, no 'real' dolls), dressing her in a rainbow array of colors (instead of only pink), I was touched by a moment of softness when she was bathed in the gentle sun in the company of her little tiger-hear me rooooaarrrrr!!!!!-friend.

now, Mia in the sea of leaves

first vehicle, upgraded

ok, ok...I know, you'll get your license before your mom...

two more teeth?

We do see them already, M's upper teeth are coming out. I've spent most of the night calming her from screaming out of her sleep, and am expecting much of the same for tonight, too. We forget about growing pains unless a young one is around. Thank God that most of us don't remember what it was like...

sweet girl, I ASSURE you cheekbones will set in soon...

finding Mia

first vehicle

I DO believe that Mia will be able to get her license before me...
Until then, I start training her early...
cool homemade pully cart: laundry basket, mommy's old belt, blanket, cushions and a parent to pull the cart

Diaper Rhetoric

"to whirl or not to whirl?" I ask of you... "slow down and soak, little by little..."
"the ultimate question is...still smelling?"
"is that enough camera time, daddy?"
