Merry Christmas

To loved ones, friends and family, near and far.

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas

Hey! You should have seen the other ones! :)

She’s 16!

Monkey is 16! Well I guess since she’s 16 I could stop calling her Monkey, right? (or at least in public and online) :)  Well ok….. *clearing throat*  I’d like to introduce you to Terry, our oldest daughter, who just turned 16!!! Unbelievable right!

It’s a very exciting time for her. And we’re also excited for her and about her future.

But I do have to admit that we do feel a little like our buddy Cleveland here……

Raising teenage daughters is scary!

I’m just sayin’  :)

Anyways, Happy Birthday Terry! We love you!

Baby J is 1!!!

Baby J is 1!!! I know people say this all the time, but…. OMG! Time flies. I can’t belive she’s already 1! She woke up bouncing in the crib as if she knew it was her special day. She has become quite a character, and we are so lucky that she’s ours.

Look how sweet she looks, as she patiently waits for me to take her picture before digging into her cupcake.

She was off to a slow start…..

but it didn’t take long.

Happy Anniversary

Yes, que the Tony Toni Tone, because “It’s our Anniversary”!

Thank you, Antonio for yet another wonderful year together. Hope this makes you smile.

(I made this Stop Motion film to tell our story) Enjoy.

Summer’s gone

Posted on

I’ve been postponing writing this post. But…. yes, summer is gone! (At least for us here). The kids went back to school a couple of weeks ago,  for some reason (thankfully) it’s been a lot cooler than usual and now Labor Day is right around the corner. So there’s no denying that our beloved summer has come to an end. It always seems to fly by but that’s a good thing right?

Anyways, here’s a few pics of our summer.

Hope you’ve had a great summer.

First day of school

Posted on

Monkey and Turtle D started school two weeks ago. Surprisingly, they haven’t gotten tired of school yet! You know how it usually goes, in the summertime you hear, “I’m so bored! I’m ready for school to start!” Then school starts and all you hear is”class is sooooooo boring!”

On the big day they woke up pretty excited. I mean they had been planning their hair, accessories and outfit all week. (Awwww, yes. The life of parents of 4 girls). Somehow in the midst of the excitement their little sister woke up at around 5:30 with them. Yes 5:30 AM.

 And she hung with them as they got ready for their big day.

 Yes, when it was time for pics…. she was front and center for every one. :) I mean, look how happy she looks here.

I knew it wasn’t going to end well. She should have caught on when she still had on her beloved Dora Pjs and no shoes. But there was no stopping her from trying to walk out the door to the bus stop.

She even ran and got her Dora bookbag :(It was cute and pitiful all at the same time.

Your time will come Little One, your time will come. In the meantime, here’s to a great school year for her big sisters.

11Months Old!

Posted on

The countdown has now began. Baby J just turned 11 months yesterday. Which means that we are very rapidly approaching her first birthday! Whoa! It’s almost too much to bear…….. Ok, that’s a bit dramatic, but I think you know what I mean.

You know the routine, here’s what she’s up to now:

  • has four front teeth, with a fifth coming in
  • says several words (Momma, Dadda, yeah, bye)
  • follows simple directions
  • feeds herself using hands
  • throws everything (and she has great aim!)
  • drinks from a sippy cup
  • stacks blocks
  • climbs up onto and down from couch (bed)
  • plays independently, as well as with her big sisters
  • starting to run (she frequently attempts a grab & go, but she’s still  too slow not to get caught)

She’s quite a character and isn’t afraid to let you know what she wants, or when she wants it, or how she…….. (well you get it) :)  But she really is “sugar and spice and every thing nice”.
