Food status: nothing new. She is still eating our homemade bread. I am thinking I should talk to her pediatrician and perhaps sneak in some vitamins in powder form (hopefully some kind of no-taste thingy) into the bread. We will see. We were on the road for two weeks out of the past month so while on the road, Yaya subsisted on circle toast (cinnamon raisin english muffins), green chips (Lay’s Sour Cream n Onion potato chips) and milk. Some mornings she ate bagels. Sometimes she ate pizza. But she ate so much circle toast that she did confess to missing Mama’s bread at home. 🙂

Reading status: same as last month. Still progressing. However, my friend Amy posted this article that made me feel much better. Yaya cannot sit still for any length of time, without wiggling and adjusting. Basically the only time I’ve ever seen her sit still while awake is when she is working on her artwork. So we aren’t pushing her and our teaching method is mostly Socratic at this point in time.

Let’s get to the pictures. I have excluded our vacation pictures as there will be an entry just for that. Here are some of my favorites of Yaya and Adik together:

And yes, there was snow in the month of March. A lot of it. Far too much for this tropical girl.
