One morning when Liam and I wanted to go out for breakfast, we discovered a Scandinavian restaurant, Broder, that’s 3 blocks away from our house. He loves their Aebleskiver (pancakes shaped into balls), so much so that he remembered the restaurant’s name. We went there again with Desi on New Year’s Eve. They were very accommodating to our vegan lady company. :) It was a great find and I can’t wait to dine there again with my sister (Vanessa) and her Danish husband (Kim) in March when they come visit.
I can’t believe it’s already the middle of January!
Since having Liam, January has been about a first-half recovering from the holidays and a second-half preparing for Liam’s birthday. There really isn’t much to prepare, but I like to plan in advance. We had thought of many ideas as early as November. We only have 1 kid, so I have this self-imposed guilt/pressure to give him the best that we could in all aspects. Believe me when I say that I’m not planning an O.T.T. party.
He’s now in the age that he recognizes birthday parties as fun times spent with friends outside of school. I was disappointed that we couldn’t make it to the party of one of his close friends in December because of our visit to grandpa, but that was soon followed by a joint celebration of another friend and his brother.
His little birthday party is looking more solid now. I’m not giving any details yet but it will involve pizzas, cake, and ice.
