Nina and Miko checked out the Brooklyn Children's Museum. We only had a couple hours left when we got there, and spent most of time at the area that are for older kids. But at the end, we found the area that are for infants and young toddlers. It's probably a great place to go when the weather is not good. We'll be back sometime.

Nina had another Springy outdoor play date with double Akira (Girl Akira and Boy Akira) at Pier 6 of Brooklyn Bridge park. Because it was still a little chilly and windy, the sandbox was nearly empty, so we had a fantastic time in a private playground. It was very interesting to watch how they interact each other. They appeared to be old enough to recognize each other and were very touchy, as well. After a while, we got hungry so we moved to a cafe nearby. Luckily the cafe wasn't crowded either, and we were able to sit down with two high chairs and three strollers parked next to our seat. It was some adventure to have a sit-down lunch with three kids. We each fed the kids to keep them occupied while we ate. They made some noise, but they were good over all.
We visited Jonah n Alyse in Fort Green, Brooklyn. Nina got a little shy when we first got there. But soon she got warmed up, and loved hanging out with the most kid-friendly couple. We took a stroll to the sculpture park inside Pratt Institute and had some picnic. We had a lovely Saturday afternoon. Thanks, J&A.
It was a beautiful spring day here in NYC. We took a ride to Prospect Park and had a picnic with Mahiro and Nami. Though the sun was intense at times, the lawn was brown and wet. We brought a lunch and strolled afterward. Nina is liking her new stroller, too. We hope to be back soon.
Nina signed up for her first swimming lesson starting the end of this month. For that occasion, I got her a lemon colored swimsuit. The swimsuit is for 18 months so it looks too big for a 8 months-old. But I'm hoping that she'll grow in by this summer.
Meantime, she's busy with developing her motor skill. She gets up and down hundreds of times a day, crawls to one room to the other. And finally she tried to get up to the handle of a walker, which we've been trying to introduce her to. She's a little scared about the fact that it moves forward as she gets up. But it's a big step toward walking by herself.
