Priceless Moments

It is very hard to capture the priceless moments on video because every time I turn it on the girls stop doing what they were doing. This morning I was in the kitchen making myself some breakfast while the girls were on the floor in the family room playing. All of a sudden I hear both LM and SE laughing like crazy. I went and peeked over the couch and saw that they were laughing at eachother. It was the cutest thing. I snuck up on them with the video camera and captured at few seconds of the interaction. It will only get better... I can't wait. Already best friends!

7 Months Old!!!



The girls are 7 months old today. Can't believe they are past the half way point to 1 year. What am I going to do!?

At 7 months their favorite food is sweet potatoes, Madeline has 2 teeth, Emma doesn't have any. Both girls are sitting on their own, rolling in all directions and scooting themselves around. No crawling yet. Emma can't get enough of Papi. They both have incredible giggles when you get them going. The past few months have been so much fun. Can't wait to see what the next few months bring us.

One Year




One year down and many more to go. Today is our one year wedding anniversary. As crazy as this first year of marriage has been, it sure has been amazing.
Kendra watched the girls for us and we went up to La Conner, WA for the night. We stayed at a great place on the water and had enjoyed the time away.

Happy Valentine's Day

I tried to get creative and artsy but it is hard with a bad camera. One of these days we will have a nice one and maybe an Ultimate Light Box system to help with the horrible shadows.

The Orange Monster

This week's new food is sweet potatoes. Emma is diggin' the solid food thing and LM is still a little hesitant but doing better.

I think SE has more sweet potatoe on her than in her belly.


LM much rather have her milk.

Gig Harbor



On Monday the girls and I went down to Gig Harbor to spend the night with the cousins. Kiersten went to Florida and Joe had to work, thank goodness Nana was around to help. Three infants aren't easy.

So far the score is 2-0

This morning we discovered tooth number two in LM's mouth. Her bottom right broke through sometime in the middle of the night. There was nothing when she went to bed, and a tooth when she woke up. She has been pretty uncomfortable all day, constantly playing with them with her tonge. Overall, for the teething thing I would say she is doing well though. She is sleeping a lot. Poor SE still has none, zip, ZERO. But I really don't think it will be long.

"I'll show you my tonge, but you can't see my teeth"

"This teething thing isn't very fun."
Looks like LM may become a computer nerd just like her mommy.


"Look at me, my sister may have teeth but I'm swimming in the kitchen sink"

First Day of School

Yesterday, Monday, February 4th was the girls' first day of school. The girls and I are going to a co-op preschool program put on by Bellevue Comm. College at the Kidquest Children's Museum. It is a lot of fun. We sing songs, play games, and have snack time where the girls get to try new foods.

Superbowl Sunday...What a BIG day it is

Well, not only are our favorite Patriots playing in the superbowl today, but LM got her first tooth! That's right a TOOTH! Her front lower left tooth was discovered this morning when she decided to stick my finger in her mouth to chew on. I was quite surprised. She hasn't shown many signs of teething, not fussy and not nearly a drool machine like Emma. I thought for sure SE would get the first tooth. She has been drooling and chewing on anything and everything for months. I am sure it won't be long.


While daddy is in Phoenix experiencing this great day with friends, the girls and I are in Gig Harbor ready to cheer for the Pats at Nana and Papa's. We miss daddy but know that he is having an amazing time with friends at Superbowl XLII getting ready to watch his favorite football team make history. GO PATS!!!!
