Thank you beth and steve for sharing that lovely cream with us. We enjoyed it in the homemade icecream and Swedish pancakes, didn’t we? We also enjoyed mounds of pesto pasta, some terrific green curry .. and of course beans and rice.
Recovering Mommas and little babies need quiet houses. So we took all the kiddos out to our favorite Lumpini Park. We especially liked the monitor lizards, as usual. The park was so much fun and the kiddos were still okay, so we went to the mall and played in an indoor playground and then enjoyed street food. Yay for sticky rice and crunchy chicken. And yay for coconut ice-cream in a coconut!
Guess who made her arrival right at perfect time? This little sweet girl. I am so thankful that I was able to be present at her arrival. It was special to have those quiet hours while we waited for her, too. My victory of the night was that I was able to explain to the nurses in Thai on the baby ward why we did not want eye drops, pacifier, formula etc. We wanted ‘rooming in’ and priority given to baby staying with momma. There, now I know that my Thai comes back if it has to!
This is our new neighborhood. It’s like life has started all over again. We were only there for a few hectic days of unpacking. Days filled with the joys of empty cupboards waiting to be filled, looking out a new scenes from large windows, enjoying our own bed and privacy and thinking about new curtains. There was alot of expectation and anticipation . . . because. . . would we make it to Bangkok in time? We flew to bangkok, almost giddy with excitement. One of the treats those first days was an Ethiopian meal with friends, and watching Obed stand.
