We had a lovely hanami play date in a perfect weather. Sakura, we'll miss you, see you next year!
Nina loves chicken and tomatoes. She has some yogurt with fruits as a dessert, as well.
Chicken n tofu meatball:
Ground chicken, silk tofu, shiitake mushroom, dill, onion, egg, potato starch, grated garlic, a hint of miso
Nina has been difficult when she's fed by spoon. She tries to steal a spoon and self- feed or bang the spoon, make a mess, and drop them all. So, I decided to make a finger food that's more like a meal. I started off with turkey and tofu mini humburg. To give some flavor, I added chopped onion, grated ginger & garlic, and aonori flakes. She ate like 7-8 small pieces! She first mushed the humburg into smaller pieces, then ate and played. Now that the tip of her bottom-front 2 teeth are out, she can kind of cut up some food. I'd say it's a great start.
Nina's first instrument, "Yuki" the ukulele has arrived yesterday. She was already familiar with the sound since her papa played for her sometimes. This is the video of her first contact with her own ukulele.
Nina loves her sippy cup with a straw. She now likes to do things by herself. When we go out, I take her sippy cup and give it to her when she gets loud, instead of her toy. With a toy, she tosses it when she gets bored, but with a sippy cup, she holds on to it. I put water in it, so she gets hydrated with no mess. That's nice.
