Happy Second and Six Month Birthdays, Mayumi and Emiko!!!

Here is a short clip taken at Mayumi's Second Birthday Bash. Thank you to all who came and especially to Mayumi's Grandma Mimi and Aunti Audrey who brought raw tortillas all the way from El Pasa, TX for us to cook on the spot and serve with our sweet pulled pork tacos.

Yesterday (one day early if you follow the Americn Pediatric Association recommendations) was a big day for Emiko; not ONLY did she get her first taste of rice cereal, but we weaned her from the Kiddapotomas (swaddling blanket) AND started sleep training (she used to be a great nighttime sleeper but has gotten in the habit of waking every four hours). The cereal was a success, she didn't seem to miss the Kiddapotomas at all, and she only cried for 35 minutes in the middle of the night before falling back to sleep--making it a 7 hr stretch total without a feeding.

WE LOVE YOU GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH! Emi's face is just priceless with that first taste of cereal. Yumi's birthday looks like it was fun. I wish I could have been there, too. I love those sweet girls.
