Luca: 8 months and 1 week
Solid food: spinach, green peas, green beans, carrots + apple, potatoes, oat meals, rice, butternut squash, pumpkin, turkey (dislike), fish (hate! ), tomatoes, red peppers. You can eat a lot of food now!
Yesterday was your papa’s birthday. I wanted to treat him in many ways so I took you guys to Amandine Cafe for breakfast, the Side Car for yummy donuts (and just ok coffee), and Sonoritas Prime Taco for lunch. Your papa wanted to go out for dinner also but we just couldn’t find a place where we wanted to eat so we stayed home. We reached to the age that we don’t want any materials because we have enough. We only care for experiences, new experiences so then we keep expanding our world (most likely it’s me though. Lol). Small or big, it doesn’t matter. Experience is experience. 😊
Papa and I are trying to expand your world too. We took you to another swing at the another park close by the Side Car, AND took you to the Santa Monica Beach! I know it was cold but it was such a fine weather. Your papa said “let’s go to the beach!”spontaneously. I was super excited and surprised because he doesn’t say “let’s do this”, “let’s do that” much. So I had to take this opportunity!
The air was crisp and fresh, and the sun light was warm. The smell of the ocean brings me back to the memory of my childhood. The city I grew up is called Kamakura aka Little Kyoto and it is a big beach town as well as historical. I love the sound of wave, love the smell of salty ocean, love to feel the fresh air.
Anyway, your Papa wanted you to touch and feel the water for the first time. As a result… Too cold and you cried. Of course. Next time when we come back to the beach, we will make sure it will be a warmer weather. 😄
