Can you believe it? Baby girl is half way to being one! We love having this little one around. She is just such a content little baby. You hardly ever hear her cry. T went to her 6 month appointment and the doctor said she is nice and healthy at 18.3 lbs and 69 cm. In other words she is big!
At 6 months she is now sitting up well in her booster chair. She is still trying to get the hang of solids but I think and hope she’ll love food as much as her big sisters. T can still only roll to the left but the other day we saw her roll to the left twice and then off the rug and onto the floor. Oops. She doesn’t have any teeth yet but the doctor said it’ll be soon. T loves to grab her toys and play with them. It still amazes me how just a few months ago she didn’t even know what to do with the toys but now she grabs them herself. We are looking forward to seeing more developments in the next few months. In the meantime we are trying to hold onto our little chubby infant for as long as we can before she becomes a toddler.
This year we went all out and bought a real tree! I haven’t had a real tree in my house since college probably. Yes, it is very messy but it looks so pretty and smells so yummy and the girls absolutely love it! We patiently waited for its arrival and it did not disappoint! The tree is perfect! We actually made a lot of the decorations and it was so much fun trimming the tree.
Everyone had a lot of fun!

Baby started solids last week. I’m not sure what she thinks of it so far. Some days are better than others. Overall I think she is enjoying not just drinking her milk and I think she loves the fact that she is sitting in her high chair and eating like the rest of us!
Big sister helping out!
I think she liked peas the least!
So happy sitting in her chair like a big girl!
Sienna had her first school field trip and I was able to accompany them to the HK park. I haven’t been there since we first moved here but I think we should go more often. The park is great. It has an aviary, a greenhouse and a good number of monkeys. And the best park is that it’s right in the middle of the city! The highlight of the trip for Sienna was riding in the big school bus with her classmates!
I really like her teachers this year. They are all very personable and caring and the most important thing is that Sienna loves them as well.
It’s crazy but her class has almost 40 kids with 3 teachers! The ratio is kind of scary but it works. For some reason, they are able to control all these kids and they are pretty well behaved. Aren’t they so cute?
Photos from our villa. We loved where we stayed – great apartment and excellent service. It was also very spacious so perfect for our large family!
We loved beach hopping. Unfortunately we didn’t get to take any photos with my cousin Stephanie, but I do have one of her at the beach (proof that she was actually there with us). I think Trinity enjoyed the nice breeze at the beach too.
Before we left for Phuket, Cadence pulled her front tooth out herself! It was SO loose that it got difficult for her to eat so I told her either she had to pull it herself or I would. I guess she trusted herself more. Anyway that was almost two weeks ago now and the tooth fairy forgot to show up! Oops. I need someone to remind to remind the “tooth fairy” to pay a visit. This little girl has been waiting patiently for her $30 HKD.
Last week we left Hong Kong for a week of fun, sun and the beach in Phuket, Thailand. It was my first trip since this spring. The two older girls had so much fun swimming in the pool and the beach. My cousin, Stephanie, is in HK studying abroad this semester so she joined us for part of our trip. It was so nice getting to spend some time with her. I love it when family come visit us! Anyway, the week went by way too fast and now we’re back to the grind. Thankfully it’s Thursday already!
I have more photos on my iPhone that i still need to upload so I will post more later. Trinity took her first flight and she did great! I think she enjoyed herself as well bumming around the beach and the pool. What’s not to like right?
