This is a quick update…. our baby arrived early! I had an emergency C-section last Thursday. So we welcomed our son Yul Theodore to the world. Because he is so early he is in the NICU for a little while.
We update most days on social media, especially Instagram, so please follow on there if you’d like to know more. The blog and YouTube channel is likely to be quiet for a little while. Once he can come home and we are settled we’ll talk more about our experiences and introduce our son properly.
Big thank you to everyone who has been sending lovely messages and supportive comments.
All sorts of spicy food challenges have been popular in Korea in recent years. Seriously, why do people do this to themselves? Well, here is a new one.
Thukpa is a noodle soup originally from Tibet and the Northern part of Nepal. The Nepalese version is spicier as it has chili powder and masala in it. The restaurant ‘Yeti’ in Seoul is somewhere that Hugh hangs out a lot and this is kind of a secret menu item but now they have decided to make it a challenge. For those brave enough to try it. No exaggerated reactions here, it really is that spicy!
This was right after Hugh had done his big transformation so he ate this after only eating vegetables, chicken breast and sweet potatoes for a few weeks. I’m surprised he didn’t burn a hole in his stomach. Poor Joel has already ruined his stomach from the challenges Josh and Ollie from the Korean Englishman channel have made him do. Alex was the one that did the best on this challenge. Even Gambhir, the owner, bailed before Alex did!
We are curious to see if anyone can win this challenge as it’s not only a lot to eat, but it’s just so spicy. Everyone attempts the Korean spicy noodles challenge but this is a whole other level. Let us know if you try it!
Our baby has been moving around a lot these days. While it’s so exciting earlier on in the pregnancy, and it’s still amazing now, some nights I do wish he would settle down a bit. Apparently he will soon as he gets too big to move around as much and moves downwards ready for birth.
Hugh will put his face up to my belly and get him to kick his face, a trick that hopefully the baby won’t do later!
This is what it can actually look like when the baby is moving:
