Sea World

We were able to take a short vacation to San Diego this past weekend. We really wanted to take the boys, but especially Caden to Sea World. It was so fun to experience all the shows and exhibits through his eyes. He loved the shows and he still chants, “Go Shamu!” at home.














Easter 2012

This was the 2nd year we went to Tustin Sports Park for their annual Easter Egg hunt.  Last year Caden was only a year and a half so we had to help him get his eggs and goodies.  Wow, what a difference a year makes!  This year he was running around and filling his Easter basket without any help from us.  This was Colin’s first Easter egg hunt but too bad he was sleeping the entire time.  🙂






We pray that in the years to come our boys will understand the true meaning behind Easter Sunday, that it is actually Resurrection Sunday, the day our Lord resurrected from the dead, conquering sin and securing our salvation.  May they see what a truly glorious day it is. 


Colin’s 6 Months and Caden’s almost 2.5 years old!

I’m a little behind but Colin turned 6 months not too long ago. Here are his stats…
Weight: 17.2 oz (43%)
Height: 26.25 in (33%)
HC: 17 in (46%)

Some new developments for Colin are:
-He’s the King of rolling! He just rolls and rolls and rolls! One day he was just laying there and the next day he was in a totally different spot than where I put him! So fun.
-He’s eating all kinds of solids now! He’s had avocado, pears, squash, green beans, carrots, sweet potato, spinach, and so far he likes it all!
-We finally set up the crib for him and he’s been getting some good independent time in there.
-His 4th tooth is coming in!
-People keep saying he looks like a girl. It must be his fair skin and long locks. 🙂
-He is blowing raspberries like no other. He makes the funniest faces and noises and I love it. It is so cute and hilarious.

Caden is almost 2 1/2 years old and I am amazed at how much he can say and do. He is talking up a storm now and surprising us all the time with what he knows. Some things I want to remember about him at this age…

  • He loves doing puzzles! He has two wooden puzzles that he takes apart and puts together pretty much every day, sometimes 5-6 a day. He’ll pretty much try any puzzle I give him and he’s good at them too!
  • He transitioned himself to the toddler bed a few weeks ago. One day he told Daddy that he wanted to sleep in the big boy bed or as he called it “Mommy’s bed” (since I used to fall asleep there when he was waking up a lot in the middle of the night). We thought it was going to be hard to transition him but he just did it by himself. Woohoo!
  • He’s getting more scared easily. He keeps telling us about things that are “scary.” Random pictures of animals and certain characters from his favorite T.V. show have been scaring him. I didn’t take him too seriously until he came running to me, screaming and shaking in fear one day.
  • He’s been saying “thank-you” whenever we give him something or do something for him. It’s so sweet.
  • He LOVES the small world ride from Disneyland right now. He sings the song and talks about the ride all day long. DP recorded us on the ride and Caden wants to watch it EVERYDAY.
