berry berry turnovers brownies
最近常常很想吃甜品,試過致電老公要他在回家時買蛋糕給我,真的非常奇怪.為免每天都要等老公買才可以吃,所以決定自己整,健康又經濟. 星期一首先試整了berry berry turnovers,我負責洗切材料,老公就負責餘下的所有步驟.由於只有8件,兩天就被我們全部吃掉(真恐佈吃了這麼多).
dinners in the last few weeks
maine lobster is so good
After feeding the baby, Eric and I went for lunch and did the shopping for the week. I got the recipe from mom and hopefully can find some time next week to make the brownie. While I picking out the vegetables, Eric saw some live lobsters and asked if I would like some. I wasn't really planning on a fancy dinner but I would never turn one down. There was an expert to help customers pick the lobster. We were just looking at first but ended up with 2. He was so nice and taught us how to cook it.We finished up our shopping quickly and went straight home.
As soon as we got home, we started to cook the lobsters. It didn't take long and we decided to steam some aspargus to go with it. Oh God, they are ridiculously delicious. They were just the perfect size about 1 lb each and it filled my stomach all the way. Very satisfied.
My little sweet heart
Alexis gave me a few surprises in the last week. First, she slept through the night since last Friday (for 8 hours, thanks God). She even slept for 9 hours the night before. As I read the information from the Pediatrician, breastfed baby may only sleep for 4-7 hours until 6 months old. I already prepared to wake up every 4 hours until her 1 year old birthday (if I am lucky to have 4 hours every night). Still can't believe she really slept through the night. Anyway, I still wake up every 4 hours to check on her and change her diaper. I keep reminding myself and know for fact that is normal for her need to eat in the middle of the night once a while, but I am crossing my finger that won't happen too often, none will be even better.
Secondly, she rolled over and rolled back up from her tummy all in one day within like 15 minutes. I was so excited when I saw it yesterday. I wasn't expected it at all and couldn't believe what I just saw. Eric called from work and I told him what just happened. He came home and Alexis did him a favor to rolled back up from tummy, but she refused to show off the roll-over skill. haha.
Thirdly, after her almost 9 hours sleep last night, she found her toes and touched it twice this morning while I changed her diaper. This is two days in a row she gave me surprises when I was not expected.
It is so amazing a little baby grow so fast and bring so much joy that you can't even describe it. I am so grateful to have such a wonderful family and able to be a full time housewife and mother. I can't imagine if I miss any of these moments I experienced and look forward to having some more.
