This post was in my draft box for days because I could not have the time to sit down and finish it. It was just meant to post photos of the boys that I took but did not have the chance to edit and put them up in my Smugmug account.
Anyway, it’s February. But it does not hurt to post photos from January.
Warning: Photos Overload.
January 14. Shower time and getting ready for bedtime.
O took one side of the crib down to convert it to a toddler bed. Peanut loves having the access to get in and out of bed on his own. One small step to independence!
This crib/toddler bed will be our family heirloom. I am not going to throw it away. Never!
January 16 — a typical day for a stay-home-mom with two boys!
While I was in the kitchen, they laid around the kitchen floor, just beyond the closed gate, sipping sweet roasted barley and ginger tea. That day I spent most of my afternoon making chả lụa chay. Once I finished my work, they were happy because I could hang out with them. Look at them working hard as CF models for my final products!
Play time — Dancing, singing, chasing around playing “big bad wolf and two little pigs.”
I gave Peanut yogurt for snack and look at where the yogurt ended up — his face and head. I just let it dried up. He looked cute that way, anyway.
Runway model, possibly?
I love his fashion sense — a onesie on (the one with three little snap buttons at the bottom), gym pants, a nice tuxedo vest, and a fall/winter vest on the outside. All are hand-me-down from PP and his cousins.
…and then, onto Crazy Dancing Time (CDT)!
Give PP some beats and rhythms, and he will turn into a hip-hop boy, or in this photo, he looked like a ballerina. Nevertheless, this is our normal daily routine for physical activities.
January 18 — from my kitchen window.
It was a relatively warm and O was home so the three of them decided to play with the snow. They stayed out in the snow-covered backyard for more than an hour, all dressing in snow pants, boots, and heavy winter jacket.
I stood at the kitchen window looking out and snapping this photo.
January 22 — Before the haircut.
O gave Peanut a shower and then playfully tied Peanut’s hair into two tiny pony tails that reminded me of a Dr. Seuss story, Gertrude McFuzz. Peanut ran out from his room asking me to look at his funny hair and to take pictures, “picture, Mẹ, picture Mẹ.” How could I not bring out the camera?
Then I took them to the Kids’ Hair place for their new haircuts!
That is a wrap. 😀
