hot pot and "nature" walk

Last week we met some friends at a favorite little restaurant to enjoy a Hot Pot meal. Its good to do on cooler nights because you are basically sitting around an open flame :o) We ordered the spicy broth and it was delicious!

I love living in Hong Kong, the weather, the food, the people, the opportunities... all great. What I don't really love though is the fact that we are living in a city where we have limited outdoor places to play and explore. I'm noticing this more as Jack gets older... Even the parks (which there are many!) don't really have natural play areas... they're all cement and landscaping. Right outside our estate is a large canal for flood control, around it there is a bike path. This is our main playground at the moment. Here are pictures from our walk today.
Throwing leaves down the drain.

Putting seed pods in the ditch.

Driving a car on a tree.
Playing in the ditch right outside our estate. All the other mothers/maids look at me like I'm crazy when I let him get in, but it's just a little dirt and water :o)

In six months...

Our life is going to totally change! Baby Thompson #2 is expected to be arriving mid-Sept! We are SO excited for the addition to our family. Sometimes I already feel huge, but other times it seems I hardly look pregnant. Like these two pictures... looks totally different...?

Went in for my first appointment last week at 12 weeks, and everything looks great. Heres the first picture of our new little one.

boys at play

We spent the morning over at my friend Jamila's this morning. They boys had a blast playing
outside in the cool air. The weather today is perfect! Cool, sunny and not humid!

This is the first good picture of the three of them that we have gotten in months! Josiah (22 mths), Jack (18), Malcolm (20).

And... picture time is over!

Rubik Cube Genius?

Bryan and I found Jack playing with the Rubik cube a couple of days ago. He was so serious, it was great! He likes to turn the sides... if only he could actually solve it :o)

not too many pictures...

I realized earlier this week when I went to update our blog, that I haven't really taken any photos since last week. So, I took a few and now can share :o) We had a play time over at our place yesterday and Jack and Malcolm had a really fun time playing together. Things got a little crazy when Josiah showed up, not because of him, but we thought because "three's a crowd". :o)

I took Jack in for his 18 month drs. check yesterday. He weighs between 24-25 lbs, and is 32.5 inches tall. Both are between the 50-75th percentile for his age... pretty good. He also stacked blocks like a champ for the nurse. She asked me tons of questions about him and his development and the whole time he kept trying to open her drawers and grab her stamp pad... not sure how impressed she was :o) We think hes pretty great though!
