Our little ducky

Phoebe was a duck for Halloween. She LOVED wearing the costume and was begging to wear it all day. No wonder - it's like a big fluffy pillow engulfing her!A girls dorm on campus at Biola puts on "Candy Land" each year for Halloween and opens it to the public. Last year Phoebe played this game of throwing ping-pong balls into a baby pool and she loved it again this year!

Phoebe's best friends are Penny and Lena. They go to preschool together and I am great friends with their mamas.

Peas Please

Max and Phoebe "enjoying" their greens! I think Phoebe was about the same age as Max here. She might be a little older.

Happy Max

Max is such a happy, easy-going kid. He's always smiling and it's very easy to get giggles out of him! He's getting so big and is such a joy.


Wow, what can i say?

Max and Phoebe

Ahh, these two are cute. It's fun seeing Phoebe be a good big sister to Max now. And I can't wait to see the two of them grow bigger and interact more in the future!

It's been a while...

It's been a while since we've posted here. I wish there were a simpler way to post pictures to blogger from iPhoto, but sadly there isn't. Anyway, we are alive and doing well. Sarah and I are both feeling the summer drawing to a close and anticipating school starting in about two weeks. We will actually have two people starting school this fall. I, Levi, will continue at Rosemead; and Phoebe will be doing preschool once a week! Max is getting bigger and bigger, as you can see. I would say that he is probably a month and a half to two months away from crawling. He is a very active kid. Anyway, we will try to keep you posted more frequently.

Good quote about children

"One of the most important needs [children have] is the need to be
[and feel] significant. [When your child feels insignificant,
unimportant, unlovable, or not all right, then misbehavior] is the
quickest way to find significance."

The Results are In!

So Sarah and I decided to settle our dispute over lemons and blueberries by having a poll for people to answer on whether or not lemons and blueberries go together in baking and whatnot. Well, 60% of the people voted that they do go together, so I guess that says that I win. haha. just kidding. Sarah wins this time, but that's only because not enough guys answered the poll, I'm sure.

Sarah must have taken this photo, because I do not recall taking it. Regardless, the more I look at it, the more I am mesmerized by it. I can't explain what it is exactly. There is just something about Phoebe's expression, a rare maturity and depth in her eyes perhaps, that just captivates me. Something in her eyes tells a silent, fascinating, but mysterious story. The longer I look at her, the more deeply I am drawn into her expression. Such mystery. It is truly mesmerizing.

Camera woman

Phoebe loves little gadgets. Recently she has taken a liking to cameras. Budding photographer perhaps?

And here's a freeby of Max chillin' in his bouncy seat.

Max is getting as cute as ever.

Same with Phoebe.

And Sarah!

Phoebe decided one morning that she wanted to try using her cereal bowl as a hat - while the cereal and milk was still in it! She cracks us up almost everyday. :)

Phoebe and her jumping

We knew Phoebe was a strong, active, athletic girl, but we didn't realize the extent of it until we spent 45 minutes watching Phoebe jump off of things into a soft cushion of blankets.
