Lemon sourcream cake

I guess the three weeks holiday made my drive and mood to bake and cook back to its path again. That is so true, when I was away and didn touch any of this baking and cooking utensils really made me long for them. I just wished to come home earlier, so I could cook, and bake some of my fave cakes..and when the holiday over, I already put all my heart and soul back. Told my self, "oh..yeah, today AM GONNA COOK!!!, How I miss it". Well, I may be not a top one chef, not even a master in creating glamour dessert...but, I could proudly say that my cakes rarely fail to please my husband tounge...eeerrrhhmm...i may be saying little lie here..Ok Ok, my baking failed sometimes...but, who cares?? I love baking! and today, am gonna make this LEMON SOURCREAM CAKE...been telling myself to make this longggg before holiday but never materialized..til today!!

The sour cream, made the texture is moist...yeah, that's why I love this cake and give two thumbs up of the taste..

I imagine eating this cake for an elegant afternoon tea break....that'd be perfect!

Zoey turned into 9months today! 4-07-07

Kalau bisa flash back 9 bulan lalu, ketika zoey terlahir dan the hectic schedule began. Aku selalu bertanya-tanya. Kapan ini anak besar? kog kayaknya kecil mulu. Lama banget gedenya. Tapi hari ini kulihat Zoey, dan aku ingat2 9 bulan lalu...aku berkata, wah...time has flown by so fast. Sekarang my baby sudah 9bulan, gak kerasa! (haha...how it oppose to what i said last time...funny!)

Selama 9bulan, Zoey has shown very healthy and rapid development. Kuintip catatan ku, kulihat oret-oretan tanggal yang memperlihatkan perkembangan Zoey yang "pertama kali", seperti pertama kali Zoey travelling naek pesawat untuk ngurus passport, 1.5bulan, pertawa kali ketawa ngakak..umur 2,5bulan..dan stop for quite sometimes...sekali itu kudengar...dan sebulan kemudian baru mulai ngakak lagi.

Tertulis disitu juga, Zoey membalikan badan sendiri..umur 5bulan...hmm.. not bad.

Lagi, Zoey belajar duduk, umur 6bulan.....

Lalu, Zoey belajar merangkak, umur 7bulan...tapi belum sempurna..

Zoey, akhirnya bisa duduk sendiri dari posisi terlentang...7,5bulan..

Merangkak dengan sempurna, 8bulan....Belajar berdiri sendiri, 8bulan 1minggu....

Tumbuh gigi pertama kali juga di 8bulan 1minggu...I remember, many progress in a week time.

8,5bulan, udah mulai keluar suaranya mmmmaammmaa..babbbaabbbaaa.....so cute sounds.

Dan, sekarang mulai merembet2 jalan sambil pegangan tangan...ah...pengen cepet2 liat dia bisa jalan...pasti lucu....arrrghh..time moves so fast, like a blink of eye!
