new MOM in japan

Comforts and food

the Flu has infiltrated!! but we didn’t realize it till it got daddy! so that is the real reason we have all had these “colds” recently. but you know what that means… comfort-food!!!


gotta love hot chicken soup. now in the states i like the egg noodles, but my Japanese version has rice. which tastes just as good. this time i also added ginger and sweet potatoes, YUM!

other then that we just rested and relaxed at home. EG helped her bro brush his teeth and we also destroyed (or ate) our gingerbread house!! even more YUM!

well, till next time…cheers



fevers and plans

EG had her first official fever!!! this morning she was her usual self, but by noon she was crying something crazy and her forehead was steaming!! but with her only being 5 months old the only thing I could do is breastfeed and try to make her as comfortable as possible so she can sleep.

then there is big brother who always has energy to spare. he’s been in the habit of watching his favorite monster truck video right when he gets home from school. so I decided to give him a little something to distract him for a while. my plan is for this to become a habit when he gets home rather then watching something on tv. i’ll let you know how it goes!643e6440-05ed-413f-a91f-729cec05b283

prayers for EG!  until next time…
