Henry lost his first upper tooth today. This isn't his first baby tooth that has left his mouth, it is actually the third. But this one is special to me. It changes the way he looks. It changes him from a little kid to more of a big kid. And he has always had a HUGE gap between his front two teeth. Kind of like Alfred E. Newman, only better looking. And now that gap is huge since the baby tooth is gone. It will be really funny if that other front top tooth falls out so he has an even BIGGER gap until the adult teeth make their way in.
Henry is so proud. As he should be. This is a milestone. I am a proud momma bear. Smile for me gorgeous.
It's not roasting hot in Los Angeles, but hot enough for the kids to want to be in the water having fun. So yesterday we went over to my brother's place and Henry and Lily went for a dip. Lily was very excited to be in the water. She splashed and splashed. Even when she'd get water on her face or in her eyes, she kept going. It was fun to watch. Henry had fun doing squirt toys with his cousins. I wish we had a pool but maybe in our next home.
Not the greatest picture but the food was excellent. From V'con cookbook we have chickpea cutlets and lemon roasted potatoes. You can never go wrong with the cutlets! They are great. I like mine super crusty as you can see. Then we have steamed asparagus and golden gravy from the new farm cookbook which everyone just calls the farm cookbook. Henry loves that gravy. He loves it with pasta too. That is really good actually. We all like that now because of Henry.
This is Pasta Della California. It is from the cookbook Veganomicon. You need to make this dish. It is fantastic! Avocado, linguine, arugula, broccoli, garlic, chili flakes, lime zest and juice! There is barely any leftover of this. I kept going back for more and more.
Yesterday, Lily decided it was time to start crawling! Henry was busy playing Twister with our friends, Allan and Mary Jane, and Lily moved towards them. It was great. She did two movements towards them and then collapsed. The world is now hers for the grabbing! This is an exciting time we are entering. I love this part. Even though it can make you crazy having to make sure everything is out of their reach, I love how happy they get when they grab something they wanted.
Henry and Lily went to the park together. Henry showed Lily how to dig and play in the sand. He did a great job because she LOVED the sandbox. Always a good time with these two. She loves her big brother.
