Out and About with Baby Monty

We have wasted no time and getting Monty out to see the sights and sounds of Hong Kong. Here are a few snaps during his first few weeks of life.

Brunch at Tivo in Kennedy Town

Out and about in Stanley.

We set to the open sea on a yacht to celebrate Teddy's bday!

Running around Central with Mimi.

Dinner at Pizzeria Italia (best pizza in Hong Kong!)

Full belly for a growing boy!

Mary arrives to Hong Kong and doesn't put baby down for a second!

Back to Stanley when a Typhoon changes our plans for a trip to Lamma Island.

Picking up some lunch at Cafe O.

One last photo before Mary heads to the airport.

Trip to Maverick's with Baby Monty and Mimi

During the HK Holiday, we headed out to Lantau Island to check out Mavericks beach bar.  Mom was with us but I don't have any pics with her! Ah! Typically what happens to whoever is taking all the pictures. Since it was during a public holiday, there were no taxis anywhere when we got to the island. We took the buses and arrived without any issues. 

Getting ready to go on the ferry.

Passing IFC on the boat.

 Monty is ready to go.

Water buffalo of the island.

Everyone was out collecting mussels that day on the beach.

We arrive at Mavericks!

My long awaited margarita! We also tried the nachos and the burgers. Two thumbs up!

Monty still sleeping through it all.

Mom and I took a walk on the beach before heading back and spotted this snake. We thought it was dead until he flared his head out. Turns out Hong Kong has cobras! Yikes! All we could figure is that a bird must have dropped him from its mouth. Not sure why else he would be so close to the water. And yes, we were standing all 2 feet away from this guy. Eek!

More muddy water buffalos on our way out.

My boys worn out by a day in the heat!

Journey Through My Pregnancy

This has certainly been the year of babies in the Year of the Horse. On my side of the family with cousins and my sister, we will have 6 new babies to the family (3 boys, 3 girls) and from Matt's side, his cousins contribute 3 girls and 2 boys. Total for the year of 2014, I have 16 friends that have had babies or will have a baby before the year is over.  A mini baby boom!

The end of my pregnancy is near. Here is a quick look of my journey over the last 9 months.
