What's been going on?

February has come and gone, and now it's March. I can hardly believe it!

Here are some random/not-in-order tidbits of what we've been up to the past couple of weeks...

I feel like this picture very accurately depicts Penny's personality right now. She was literally stomping her feet being grumpy and mad right before, and I said "Turn around and show me your flower for Ms. Ngo" and she made this face. She is quite the performer. 

Jonas got really sick last week, and it was so so sad. He missed a couple of days of school and we were quarantined, but he didn't seem to mind too much. Especially because he loves ginger ale and saltines and watching a lot of TV.

When we went back to school after being sick, we learned that Jonas won the title of "Top Kindergarten Fundraiser" for his school's read-a-thon! Woohoo! Thank you friends and family who donated. He raised more than $200!! His prize was a gift certificate to the school Book Fair. :)

After a rough couple of days at the end of last week, Emma FINALLY decided that she would drink from the bottle. Seriously. I thought that weaning Penny was rough. Jeff and I both thought there's NO WAY that weaning Emma could be worse than it was with Penny. HA. Way to be wrong and underestimate your daughter's willpower, Jeff and Kathy. 

One thing we realized is that Emma would do much better if I wasn't around. She was just too accustomed to me being the source of food for her. So, Penny and I got a girl's afternoon/night out and attended a wedding of a dear friend together. It was fun to get dressed up and get some quality time with my middle child. She's a hoot! 

Yesterday was the first full day of good, regular bottle feedings for Emma and I think it made her very happy. And, I stuck a bow on her head for good measure. 

March is full of birthdays (Alice, Eemo/Karen, Nora, Papa, Aunty Janice, Aunty Connie, Me...) and also one very special birthday-- Grace Alameda's one-year anniversary! We're looking forward to a busy month of celebrations!
