me and baby nicolas!



my pool rats






Tae Kwon Do even comes in handy at the pool.

one month old today!



Now that he's such a big guy...

He stays a wake for longer periods of time.

He likes to watch his brother and sister act like clowns to get his attention

He likes it when my dad holds him and walks him around.

He loves to listen to music...his favorites John Mayer, Jack Johnson, and Pink. : )

He likes to be rocked a lot... and I mean a lot! : /

He likes his glowing seahorse toy.

He LOVES the outdoors. He likes to watch the leaves on the trees move in the wind.

my little shopper


She loves to use the "baby shopping cart" at Harris Teeter. She's such a good helper too. She follows me closely and carries the groceries. She even hands the cashier my credit card and takes the receipt.

She loved this shopping experience so much that she's been checking the refrigerator to see if we need to go shopping again.

Aiden's new threads from Uncle Dullah. Thank you!

berry blast to the sky



Aiden and Sky make their favorite smoothie - "berry blast to the sky" . Try it yourself!

- 5 large strawberries
- 1/2 cup blue berries
- 1/4 cup raspberries
- 1 small to medium banana
- 4 oz or pineapple juice
- 4 large spoons of plain or vanilla yogurt

Freeze your strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries the night before then add the banana, pineapple juice, and yogurt to a Magic Bullet blender and blend to taste.

sky earns her white belt - yahooo!!!!


It's a lot of fun to watch Sky at Tae Kwon Do practice. She takes herself very very seriously. She's watched her brother practice for the past six months so she knows many of the moves already. She's a good listener, and she has good coordination and balance. To my surprise, she even knows some of the Korean terminology too. Most importantly, she enjoys every minute of practice and when it's all over, she's glowing with pride.
