Dalia Meets Salmon

The Horowitz family had a lovely Shabbat, thank you very much! On the menu? A delicious and vibrant piece of wild sockeye salmon. And this was not just for the mommy and daddy :)

We decided it was time for Dalia to taste something very different from her usuals (mango, banana, apple, grape, blueberry, cherry, egg yolk, brown rice, oatmeal, flax seed, wheat germ, asparagus, broccoli, and acorn squash--the list goes on and on). We cut up her little piece of salmon and placed in on her tray. Within seconds her little exploring hands were maneuvering the pieces with serious determination. SUCCESS! She looked at us with a huge smile as she placed several of her fingers (and the small piece of fish) in her mouth.

She really enjoys feeding herself these days and it is great to see her learning this very important skill.

Now what could top off a meal of amazing fish?

Well #1: prunes (boy Dal has been having poo issues) and #2: a piece of North Shore Kosher Bakery's challah:

Talk about a great night!

Goodies from our Philly Trip

This is love :) This is us as we near entering our fourth year of marriage.

Weddings make me realize how much I love you and how lucky we are to have one another.

Whrilwind Weekend

Well we are finally home after what can only be described as a truly momentous time making lasting memories with friends and family. One of my best girls, Katie, finally walked down the aisle. The moment I saw her tears appeared and it was difficult to keep my eyes clean during the night. She was an amazingly gorgeous and truly picturesque bride.
See for yourself:

And the next best part of the evening was spending time with great college friends. No matter how much time passes by, things just click again when you see each other. Steve and I have had just about NO breaks since little Dalia was born (think 7 months people) so the evening was also a time for us to reconnect and spend some hours snuggling up amidst the backdrop of a romantic wedding (thanks again to grandma--how lucky are we?!). Everyone loves a good wedding, especially ones with delicious drinks and a sushi station!

So congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Bechtold, a rather stunning couple, don't you agree?

So so so so sweet :)
