Babies Galore

Wow. Everyone's having or have had babies recently. They're all adorable and squishy and sweet and sometimes I miss having a newborn around. But then my 2 boys start wailing and whaling on each other or on something else equally breakable and then I remember why I'm not pregnant right now. I started having kids earlier than a lot of you and now you're all passing me by. Mighty, you haven't left the non-pregers club yet, right? If anyone can tell me how to guarantee the next one's a girl I'd be more than willing to jump on the baby bandwagon. Plus, I just really want to know what a daughter of ours would look like. With the older brothers she'd be following, she'd have to be adorable.

Here's a pic of the boys and their cousin Keilani at the Chicago Zoo.

more pammy

don't mind me, i had just woken up. this was before we left for the airport this morning. those flowers behind us were also from pammy and the tie dye we are all wearing. she left a lot of bright things behind to help remind us of her.

Thank You Pammy!

we just had to say our goodbyes to pammy. she was a perfect helper/doula/mom/friend/grammy/babysitter/chef. we totally appreciated every minute of having her here and all of her help. we miss her so much already. just to make sure we would miss her, this morning before she left she washed the sheets and towels, washed out the tie-dye she dyed for us, made us breakfast, babysat bo so i could sleep in and all while getting her stuff packed up. i hope she has a safe flight back and we are counting the days until we see her again. hopefully soon!

Just the 3 of us

I have 2 weeks to go before my due date. In the meantime Chris is out of school and I finished teaching, so we're enjoying each others company (and the amazing weather) as much as possible.
My sweet friend Gail took some family pictures of us yesterday at natural bridges. She's an aspiring photographer and would appreciate any comments or suggestions you might have. She put up more pictures of us on her blog. Please visit her blog so you can leave her a comment. She would really appreciate it.

So far I know that she came fast and 8lbs 2oz, reminds me Tenney (weight not labor). I can't wait to see more pic.

Utah's cool (even if they do have those wooden stars on their doors). We spent time with Ezra and Ada on Friday. They are independent cross country travelers. We all dipped out heads in the cold cold water below Bridal Veil Falls. Yesterday we drove out to Springville. The old house looks pretty good except for the white scalloped doors. Sienna and I gathered apples from under a tree in the park across from their house and we made a pie to take to Polllei's on Sunday. We sat out in back and looked at the mountains and clouds while we ate. At Louw's we sat in the backyard even though it was raining. Polleis and Louws are tons of fun. Also I feel like I'm on vacation but don't tell the kids at school. I sent a pack of essays to Mariko (which I read Saturday) so it hasn't been all fun and games. Sienna has had a few random pressure waves today and right now she's bouncing on her birthing ball. She looks like a snowman on the ball. The other picture is their living room in their cute house.

Enzo has been pure joy lately. He's very excited about his baby sister being born and whenever I complain that my belly is big he says "you're big and cute"

he hasn't called me mom for a while now, maybe a month or two. I miss it. He only calls me leao lion and Christian Monstro de Cobra, monster snake. For the last couple days he's been calling me minha querida, my dear.

This morning he ran up to me gave me a big hug and said "my dear you are so big and so cute"

Slip n slide fun

sorry this is a little late. minami's party was a lot of fun and I just wanted to show you how much fun it was!

Monday, August 17, 2009

It's almost 2:00am and I can't sleep because Christian is gone. He and Enzo are in Sacramento enjoying Jesse and Bekah and the girls before they travel to the other side of the country. I had to stay behind and work (yuck!).

I did get to enjoy them for 2 full days.
It's easy to enjoy M and G.
Have fun in Maine!
