About 1.5 weeks ago, Stephen came home from work and said: I’m going to bake. Usually, the 1st thought in my mind is: I’m going to wash dishes. I was also thinking: You have to be at school in 1 hr…really? But, I didn’t complain because Stephen is the World’s Greatest Chef and I was looking forward to some Raspberry Upside-Down Cake. It was delicious. He was not (that) late to school. Oh, and the dishes you see in the background? We split them. That’s love!
OMG, I just realized that I have SO much more to say!
We went to see The Phantom of the Opera for the 1st time on Saturday! Yeah! I didn’t take my camera (NO!) which really sucks because the venue was so nice (Orange County Performing Arts Center). We were about 15 minutes late (traffic at 1300 on a saturday afternoon was worse than we thought). I enjoyed it SO much. I think it’s the best musical I have ever seen. Stephen…not so much.
SFP: I didn’t understand what they were saying.
DP: Which part?
SFP: All of it.
DP: It’s just like the movie!
SFP: I didn’t understand the movie, either.
My husband, I love him. We went through a list of all the musicals we have seen. Here they go, from most favorite to least favorite:
The Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King, Wicked, Mamma Mia, Fame, Beauty and the Beast, Cats, The Color Purple.
His fav: The Color Purple.
What’s your fav??
Lara’s 18 month Check-Up
I was busy with Jury Duty so, Stephen took time off from work to take her. I missed it! Here go her stats:
Length: 34″ (97%)
Weight: 23lbs 8.5oz (50%)
Head Circumference: 47cm (70%)
She’s right on track with words (40+) and is growing at a normal rate. She didn’t get any shots. I’m so glad that we have avoided her getting the “controversial” MMR, so far. The Dr was all out of them this time so, she’ll be getting it when she turns 2. 😦 Dr. Yim suggested we start letting go a little bit and allowing her to go up and down stairs on her own. OMG, scary. So, we’ve been letting go of her hand and she hasn’t fallen on her head yet. I feel like such a first time parent sometimes; I try to protect her too much. Gaby, you’ll see. 🙂
Last, but not least, a video of Lara and Julia (co-staring w/ a few church kids) playing ring-around the rosies (whatever that means). Lara’s not into the “we all fall down part”. I don’t think I would be, either. LOL. Please use your mute button, my voice ruins the video.
See you tomorrow!
