Hello my fabulous friends, today I am going to share with you one of my most requested recipes, Toddler Friendly Quinoa Recipe. As parents, we always try to change up recipes so our babies aren’t bored with the food we put on the table yet they have to be nutritious and yummy. One of the “superfood” that everyone (yes, everyone) should try is Quinoa! Even though quinoa has an unique taste, my twin boys really enjoy it and they have to have it almost everyday. They have been eating quinoa since 7 months old so it tastes perfectly normal to them. For more health benefits information, you can click here.

My Sleep Training Tips & Tricks for Singleton and Twins
Hello my wonderful friends, I finally put together the tips and tricks that I learned from sleeping training my twins. (You can read my whole experience here). Even though it wasn’t easy at the beginning, the end results is well worth it. Not only do my twins have an awesome stretch of sleep (12 to 13 hours) but also our family can have some down time so we can spend some quality time with my older daughter without the twins.
Our Twins’ Sleep Training Story
If I can use one phrase to sum up sleep training it would be “Short term pain, long term gain”. Honestly, sleep training the twins is the best decision my husband and I have ever made. You can call us selfish by sleep training our twins but sleep is such an important part of a baby’s life that we wouldn’t want to mess with. According to the National Sleep Foundation, lack of sleep for children can directly impact mental and physical development. From newborn to 3 months, babies can sleep up to 18 hours; for babies that are 3 to 11 months, they can sleep up to 16 hours a day; for toddlers 1 to 3 years old, they can sleep up to 14 hours at night. However, I wouldn’t recommend sleep training your babies too early (before 6 months) because at that time, they wouldn’t have developed a sleeping pattern for you to train them.
New Year’s Eve Dinner + GlitterTwins 2014
Hi my awesome internet readers, here’s what we had for our New Year’s Eve! This year it was nice and cozy, it’s only the 5 of us and it was really relaxing. Since we didn’t have any beef during Christmas, we decided to make Prime Rib Roast. It only took me 15 minutes to prep and once the roast is in the oven, I can put my feet up and chill for an hour before dinner is served. Here’s what I have done:
Merry Christmas Everyone!
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
