For Fajah

I talked to my parents last night, and I promised my dad I'd take more pictures and update my blog. So to keep my promise, here you go daddy'o. Ezekiel is almost 5 months now, he weighs 14lb, and is 24 in. long. He can roll over, coo, smile, and eat mush. I am sad to say I am no longer nursing. It was just too hard to pump at work, but he did get a good 4 months of breast milk, unlike Zion who got 8, but oh well. Speaking of Zion, she is now repeating everything she hears, literally. She's even singing songs. Oh, and finally after 2 years, her hair can fit in a ponytail, miracle! I know a lot of you will find it hard to believe, but I have a hard time dealing with her hair. After I wash it and comb it out (which is always a hassle) it's perfect. But then she wakes up and...what a mess. So trust me when I say that the ponytail achievement is a miracle.

American Idol

So, Tuesday night I was watching, of course, American Idol. Some of the performers auditioned with instruments. Honestly I think it was a bad idea, some were good, like the girl that played the keyboard with the long curly blonde hair. But there one performance that I couldn't get out of my head. A young man sang and played this song on the keyboard. I loved the song so much I replayed his performance over and over again, and then ended up having it in my head all day at work. I just couldn't get it out of my head. So I came home and finally found it. The artist is Mika, and the song is called Grace Kelly. Maybe some of you know it, I hadn't heard it till that night, and I love it. I'd put it on here so you all could hear, but I don't have time right now. But check it out. Lemme know what you think.

Happy Anniversary

Yesterday, February 11th was our 3 year Anniversary. We were planning on going to dinner friday night to celebrate both our anniversary and valentines day. And I worked all weekend so I didn't really have time to get Eric anything, but unbeknownst to me, Eric came home from work with a handful of surprises for me. Balloons, 2 dozen roses, sparkling cyder, a teddy bear, and a 3 lb. chocolate heart. It was so unexpected, I was shocked, and surprised and even cried. I felt bad that I didn't get him anything, but I did order in chinese!

Zion, oh Zion. She talks and sings, and repeats everything she hears. She's a non-stop chatter box. And I'm loving every minute of it. These are a few of my favorites:

  1. "I Yien" - translation - "I'm Zion"
  2. "She-le-le"- translation - "Cereal"
  3. "shome" - translation - "Phone"

Yeah, those are the one's that I can't quite figure out how she got them. I've tried helping her sound them out. For example, cereal. I'll break it down like so, asking her to repeat after me, "Si", "re", "al". And she'll say each syllable exactly how I did, then I'll ask her to repeat "cereal", and she says, "she-le-le"! Same goes for 'phone' and 'Zion'. She can say her Z's, and F's just not when it comes to those words. Go figure? Oh and she sings "Happy birthday to you", but it sounds like, "Eh, birday to you, eh bir-day to-you...". But we try to discourage her from that song, she thinks if she sings it a cake will magically apear.

PrEciOus mOmEnTS

I took a few pictures for my mom a little while ago and snailed mailed them to her, since my computer had been on the mend the past couple months. They're not professsional but, just as cute.

These pictures look the same but the first one Zion is smiling, and the second Ezekiel is smiling. So I put them both.
And this "Kodak" moment of lil' Ez, I'm afraid I can't take credit for. Eric took it without effort. He's such a little man, isn't he!

Look mommy butter

So while I was cutting Steph's hair... our 2 little, so called, angels had some fun at Aunt Haley's. One word, Butter. Yes, these 2 little darlings, got into the fridge, opened the box, unwrapped 3 cubes of butter, and rubbed them all over my sofa! They're little faces, and hands were all greased up with butter, as was my couch. Thank goodness they're mirco-suede. With the wipe of a cloth all was well. The first picture, I took first, they were showing off, the second picture, reality set in. Kids, you never know what they'll do next.

Breckyn's first haircut!

Steph came over with Locke and Breckyn. I cut Steph's hair. Then I had the wonderful opportunity to give lil' Breckyn her first haircut. Can you believe how long her hair is! Before...

I got my hair cut!

before, natural hair color, and always in a ponytail.
After (sorry a little blurry), short, and dark. I risked getting my haircut by someone besides my talented mother. But I had to, I was desperate. I went to 'Regis'. I think they did a pretty good job, it's no 'Hair Max' hair cut, but it'll do.

My little man.

I absolutely LOVE this picture!

Now 4 months old, Our Ezekiel is such a sweet little guy. He smiles, laughs, and sleeps 12+ hrs. a night. And he can roll himself over in his bed. I'll lie him on his tummy at night, and in the morning he's on his back smiling, staring up at the ceiling.

Happy Birthday Zion!

Zion turned 2 years old on January 5th 2008! She opened her presents that morning, but didn't care about any of them after she opened the last one, which was a Hanna Montana doll, that actually sings the theme song.

Zion showing off her new doll, with backstage pass and poster included.

Sho sho (Zion's grandma) brought over a cake later. Yummy, yummy, cake! Ever since she ate her cake she says, "birthday..., cake..., mmmhmm."
She slept with her doll for the first couple of days. And we finally had to put it away for a little while, the song got old real fast.

My lil' thumb sucker.

Oh, how Zion loves her brother, and as you can see, the feeling is mutual!
He can't keep it outta his face. Lil' Ez loves to suck his thumb. It's kinda nice though, I don't have to worry about a pacifier. Isn't he sweet.

Christmas 2007

Zion could actually open her presents on her own this year. In fact she wouldn't even let mommy or daddy help. She got new toys, a new princess comforter for her bed, new clothes, and Hanna Montana accessories, of course.
