I promise.....

I will start being better about the updates! I took both of these lil' monsters to the doctor yesterday. Harper for her 9 month well-baby check up and Aiden for an eye infection. Harper weighs 15 pounds and The Boss is at a whopping 25 pounds. Besides both being mad at me, Harper for the shots and Aiden for the eye drops, they are perfectly healthy.

Jeff and I had our 3 year anniversary yesterday (yay!!!!!!!!) and will be heading to Monterey this weekend to celebrate. "Ma-Ga (grandma) and Pa-Ga (grandpa)" are kind enough to watch the kiddies for us. Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

What are they doing now?


LOVES to eat. There is not a jar of baby food she hasn’t liked yet, and Cheerios can keep her busy for an hour or so.

She can stand all by herself for close to a minute at a time.

She adores her big brother.

Likes to give kisses.

Can clap her hands.

Still loves to scream when she is happy.

Likes to pull stuff out of any drawer.

Takes 2-3 naps per day and sleeps for about 11-12 hours at night.

Is SO chubby compared to Aiden when he was her age. They wear the same size diaper right now.

Enjoys stroller rides in the double with Aiden.

Rides in the Powerwheels with The Boss.

Is always on the move.

Already is obsessed with cell phones and the remote – just like Aiden at that age.


The Boss is a talker now and it’s so cute. Here are some of his faves:

“oh COOL!”

“what you doing?”

“see you later dude” or “see you soon!”

“yourrrrr cuuuute” (referring to his sister)

“Hopper NO! NO, NO Hopper!” (Hopper = Harper)

“I want to go in NAIR” (nair = there)

"Hang loose dude" and "rock it!"

“Daddy where are you?”

“Wake up! Wake up!”

"Thank you very much!"

When he wants to get out of his bed it’s always “Help! Help!”

When I change his diaper and it is only wet he always let’s me know “No dookie mom.” - potty training is in our very near future.

Other things:

He loves to brush his teeth.

Likes to spray the hairspray and play with lotion.

Loves to push any thing “Aiden pushhh it!” (radio, doorbells, lights, phones, the buttons on the microwave, buttons on the remote control, flushing the toilet)

Loves “rides” from daddy.

Going anywhere in “dad’s truck”

Still has to watch The Fresh Beat Band at least 10 times a day.

Has started to dance.

Likes to do tricks on our snowboards and his new skateboard (wheels are not attached)

Good Eater

If some of you remember, Jeff and I had struggled for a long time to get Aiden to eat - anything. Well I am happy to say that this is no longer an issue. He has all of a sudden decided that eating is fun (and necessary). Here he is eating one of his favorite things : Chicken Nuggets.
This makes mama very happy.

Crazy Girl

I wish that I was able to turn this video, but I cannot figure it out. She is getting to be such a big girl.

Checking in.....

As some have noticed, I haven't exactly been keeping up as I should with the blog. I do appreciate the calls, texts and emails to check on us. Sometimes in life, you just need to take a "time out". Please rest assured that all is OK, and I will be back to updating shortly. The babies are growing at a rapid pace and I cannot wait to post many new pictures. Love to all. ; )

NYE 2011

I'm pretty bummed that so many of these came out blurry. Miss Harpie is MIA as it was way past her bedtime. But here is what we have from that night. We were busy doing fireworks, playing with glowsticks, riding the Power Wheels and spraying silly string. I cannot wait to experience the positive things that are coming this year. Happy New Year!!

 I think little miss Kenleigh likes the Power Wheels.

 Aiden and his best buddy Casey.

 Aiden's trying to sweet talk Diane into letting him play with her phone.

The Princess gets a bath

Uncle Nick

Aiden is completely attached to his hip and Harper doesn't think he's such a bad guy either.

The BIG un-wrap

This year was especially fun to watch Aiden, because he finally is starting to "get" the whole Christmas thing. There certainly was no shortage of presents for the kids to unwrap. Aiden did most of the unwrapping but I think Harper had just as much fun watching. Thank you to all of our family and friends for the wonderful gifts. We are so blessed to have so many of you that showered the kids with presents. The amount of love that was shared by all is worth so much more than the gifts, but they were all much appreciated.
