They love their little red table. I use it mostly for breakfast or lunch, and then we eat dinner at the main table. They also like to color and create beautiful masterpieces on their little red table. Sometimes I overhear them saying things like, "So, how was your day?" to each other...at breakfast!
Yesterday was a very cold morning. It had snowed and freezing rain was falling as the girls woke up and wanted breakfast. I had started a fire and Hazel requested that they eat fireside. They bundled themselves up in blankies and I made them some warm vanilla milk (milk, vanilla, a little sugar) and they enjoyed a warm cozy breakfast together. It was a beautiful morning with my beautiful little ladies. I am treasuring these moments with just them!

Jade had a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese the other day. There were four people in attendance. Mom. Dad. Hazel. Jade. Her birthday flew under the radar for the most part. Loved ones called, txtd, and messaged us and wished her a happy bday so that is all that counts! It was as if we rented out the whole Chuck E. Cheese, just for us, mostly because it was on a weekday. The most important thing of all was that we had fun....a lot of fun! We had a blast to be exact and Jade felt so super special with her cake, her present, and most of all with her family!

Akachan-red baby (Japanese)
Jade was very red when she was born. Her skin tone was so very different than that of her sisters. She continued to shock us as we got to know her. We were stunned because she really didn't cry upon being born. She whimpered, and we knew she was healthy but she came into the world in a very peaceful way. I remember seeing her face and her double chin as they laid her on my stomach. She was very sweet and needed constant attention! She slept that first night, pretty much the entire night. As we have seen her grow the last three years, we thank God so much for her presence in our family. She is a little fireball of emotion, strong in her opinions, a tad bit gruff at times, but the sweetest little cuddle bug you will ever meet.
Happy birthday akachan...We love you so very much!
