Ronin's 8 month picture, we went and got them done since I hadn't had
professional pictures taken of them together since Ronin was a month old.
Enjoy my cuties!
Since I haven't updated in about four months, I thought I should give
everyone the run down.
In Chico news - Chico is still taking his Masters classes and is scheduled to
be finished in March of next year. He will then move on to his PHD work in
Education. He finished his first year at the continuation high school and
he loved it. He feels like he is really making a difference in the lives
of lots of kids who are in tough situations. He is teaching summer school
and still has about three weeks left before he gets his summer break. He
has had a few health scares and illnesses, and even a minor fender bender this
year which has made life a little difficult but we are blessed that he is
In my news - Not much to say except I love being a Mom to my two perfect sons
and I am enjoying being at home with them and watching them grow and change
everyday. Oh yeah, I had a birthday a couple weeks ago and I am now
officially the big 28. Our anniversary is tomorrow. I have been
married to a wonderful, caring man for 8 years. He is the best father and
my best friend and he makes me happier than he will ever know. I love you
In Kai news - He is 3 now! We did have a big birthday party at a local
park yesterday with lots of family and friends. He wanted to have a shark
themed party (he is obsessed with animals, sea life, dinosaurs, etc.) so Mommy
went all out, complete with cake, pinata, food, water balloons, party favors,
and homemade aquariums (blue jello filled with gummy sharks, fish and coral).
Check out the pic of the cake. It was awesome! He has a busy summer
planned with swim lessons and soccer camp coming up. He got a new bike for
his birthday so I know there will be many days spent outside in the hot sun.
In Ronin news - My little baby is a huge boy! He is now six months old,
and he weighs 21 lbs 8 ozs and is 29 1/2 inches long. He is completely off
the charts (like 100th percentile) for his height and weight, and at six months
is already wearing 18 month clothing. He is now rolling over, sitting up,
and eating solid foods. How do these things happen so fast? His
favorites right now are carrots, sweet potato, and pears. He is such a
happy baby and a joy to have. We are getting him tested for allergies
because he has had problems breathing since he was born and always sounds like a
bull dog and wheezy. So there is a possibility he is allergic to our cats
and to pollen, etc. I am new to the whole allergy/asthma thing so we will
see where we go once the results come in from the tests.
I have included some pictures so everyone can see my boys and how big they
are now. Enjoy!
