Evan. One of the reasons I write this blog is for you to read when you get older. I want you to see someday why i love you so incredibly much. You are an amazing child full of love, patience, and caring. I love you with all my heart and hope that your life will […]

“They say he’s nearly eight feet tall” (The Scarlet Pimpernel)

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Max had his four month check up this week. He is doing great. Had a couple of shots, but in true Max fashion, only cried for about 10 seconds. He finally seemed to catch the cold that Evan and Sophie had earlier in the week, but seems to very mild one so far. Max is […]

“Oh what a circus” (Evita)

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

Daily life in our house is still crazy at this point. Max sleeps through the night once in a while, but most often wakes up at some  point for another bottle.  Evan and Sophie are still struggling with their sleep habits – mostly at bedtime. Dad’s still haven’t had a great nights sleep since October.  […]

“There’s nothing like packing a suitcase…” (Anything Goes)

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

We headed back to Kauai this year for another week at Kiahuna Plantation. We went the same week that we went in 2009, and got lucky with 9 amazing days of warmth and sunshine. A few things were different this year. We had one more child with us, so we were very happy to have […]

“The Pajama Game”

Monday, January 25th, 2010

It has been a very interesting few days. It was about Thursday, Jan 21, that it all started. It happened to be Matthew’s 21st birthday, but that comes in a little later. We noticed that in the morning, Evan would climb into Sophie’s crib, and they would play there until 7 O’clock when it was […]

I’m just a Broadway Baby

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Okay, Max isn’t really a Broadway baby just yet…Wednesday was Max’s 3-month birthday. He’s really come a long way. He’s big and heavy, and is still just a perfect baby. Not much crying, just sleeping & eating, and a lot more awake time. I’ve been trying to get him to smile really big for the […]

“Dat’s a rainy day” (Showboat)

MLK Day was a VERY rainy day. Daddy’a had the day off and spent a great day at home with Matthew and kids.

“Trouble, oh we got trouble” (Music man)

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

Evan and Sophie are great kids, and they love each other  – but – I have to post this video here only so that I can show it to them years from now! The funny part of the video is that you can see neither one of them cares that much about the toy! Afternoon […]

“May your days be merry and bright” (White Christmas

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

Christmas came and went as fast as it could.  Evan seemed to understand what was going on – he knew Santa was coming, knew Santa brought presents, and kept a look out for Christmas trees in every house we went by. Sophie seemed to go along for the ride. Her language skills are progressing quickly […]
