New York 2014

Ava's first flight was a success!

We got invited to our niece's Bat Mitzvah in New York, and we jumped at the opportunity to see family and visit NYC. I have to admit though, pre-kids I would have been so excited and planned our activities and booked reservations at restaurants weeks in advance. This time around, I was a little anxious at the thought of traveling with two kids for the first time. Matt and I made tentative morning and afternoon plans for each day, but did not set anything in stone depending on what family activities might be occurring that day.  Overall, we had such a great time. Leah was so happy to play with her big cousins, and Ava happily let everyone hold her!

Ava: 6 Months!

Ava is 6 months! She is the happiest baby ever! I love seeing her gigantic smile and hearing her little giggles. Here are some updates:
  • Height: 26 inches, Weight: 14 lbs 6.9 ounces {she's a string bean like her sister}
  • Rolls all over the place now
  • Loves to grab anything in front of her
  • Starting to be able to sit for a couple seconds on her own
  • Has become a thumb sucker! 
  • Took her first flight to New York and did great! 
Ava: My sweet baby girl! I can't believe it's already been half a year, and I feel like you've really grown a lot this month. You are so alert and aware of your surroundings, and I can see your eyes taking it all in. I love to cuddle and snuggle with you, and I soak up every time you rest your head on my shoulder.  You love your big sister so much, and you light up whenever she attempts to play with you. I look forward to seeing what the next month brings! Happy 6 months! xoxo

Turning 33!

Whoa! It's been a month since I've updated! Time flies at lightening speed with two kids. I thought I'd have a lot more time to blog once Leah started preschool, but I found that any little free time I had, I spent running errands, doing chores, or trying to get a little rest. I'm going to try to get all caught up soon!

I turned 33 on the 17th, and celebrated with friends and family. On the 13th, some of my mommy friends took me out to breakfast at The Commissary. It's a beautiful space in Koreatown at the Line Hotel that's bright and airy - a perfect spot to wake you up in the morning. The food was like updated versions of some of my breakfast comfort foods. It was so relaxing to be able to sit with other moms and enjoy a meal without having to worry about feeding our kids at the same time! After breakfast, we also got pedicures. It was the perfect morning.

On the 17th, I was greeted in the morning by Leah singing "Happy Birthday" to me, birthday cards, and flowers. I just love hearing that little voice sing! For dinner, a big group of us went out to dinner at Totoraku. I've been dying to go here for awhile now, and was so excited to be able to go on my birthday! It's a tiny restaurant specializing in meat. About a third of the meat courses are raw and the rest you grill. The company and meal were incredible.

I've had an amazing year with some major milestones. I'm so thankful for this wonderful life that has been given to me. Looking forward to seeing what 33 will bring!
