Little Chubster

My new nickname for Z: he's eating quite well, and sporting the chins to prove it...

Show Me the Dimples!

Caught a shot of Z showing off his dimples...

He's loving it. All relaxed in his first real bath.

New Carpets for Mom

A shot of the new carpets at my mom's house, the final touch in all her recent remodeling. Hmm... looks familiar. ;-)

Kids Play With the Darndest Things...

With all her toys, and some new ones lying around, Aria gets the most pleasure out of playing with the largest Amazon box she can find (which contained our new double Sit 'N Stand stroller)...

More Thumb Sucking

This time, Z does thumb sucking a little more properly. :-)

Catching Some Zs

For both of us: caught on film by daddy. :-P

Artist Aria

A very proud Aria in front of her row of pumpkins that she drew (all by herself).

Twin Dragons

This was a cute shot of Z with his new stuffed dragon (thanks Mike & Suporn!).

What's Got You Down?

It's probably just her way of winding down after all the excitement over the past week and a half. Here is Aria planking it out over some furniture cubes...

The Original Thumb-Sucker

Now that she's older, it's a bit of a bad habit (and it's the cause of the scratching of her nose). :-( Here is Aria still sucking her thumb (when she's nervous, anxious, hungry, sleepy...)

Where Is Sock Monkey?

Playing one of her new birthday games with daddy: Where is Sock Monkey?

Thursday, July 19, 2012


No indications of jaundice in Z, but a few rays of sunshine and vitamin D never hurts. Here he is sunbathing in our game room this afternoon.

Thumb Snagged

Just like his sister before him, Z is a thumbsucker. Here he is with a fortuitous snag of the thumb (it was short-lived of course)...

So Small

He's still so small! All swaddled up and resting in his crib wedge...

More Visitors for Z

We were all lucky enough to have the Penders visit their new nephew/cousin today. Here he is with his almost birthday buddy, Savannah.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Even though I was pretty exhausted, I was very lucky to enjoy celebrating my 35th year today with my family and friends. I had some sushi (long awaited since my pregnancy) and a yummy black forest cake. And I got one of the best gifts of all: my babies with me!

Too Loud!

We brought baby Z home today and Aria seemed to handle it pretty well. She brought over the rocker chair as soon as we arrived "for the baby", but as soon as he started crying, this was her reaction...

Visitors Galore

Lucky Z got a bunch of visitors at the hospital today. Here is a shot with Auntie Cindy and Auntie Steph...

Welcome Baby Zyler

Welcome Zyler! Just moments after his birth: bonding with mommy.

Play Doh Fun

Aria gets an early present "from the baby" tonight and is way excited about her new Sesame Street play-doh set...

Park Run

Brian and Aria running around the new park at Lake Elizabeth in the sweltering heat.

Dinner Date

Our last dinner date with just Brian and I before the baby arrives at Nijo Castle (both of our first visits if you can believe that :-P )...

Damsel in Distress

Someone save Aria! The train is headed right to her!

Welcome Baby Nicholas

Visiting Supak, James, and new baby Nicholas at the hospital this afternoon.

Ms. Scratchy

Aria has a bad habit (same as mine) of scratching where it doesn't need to be scratched. We managed to get a bandaid on her this afternoon to help her stop scratching her nose.

Future Trojan

Rocking the USC tee (even if it was a hand-me-down from cousin Savannah. We're making good use of the original purchase...)

Happy 4th of July!

Jib playing with sparklers this Independence Day.

Tuesday, July 3, 2012


She rarely lets me take photos, so I had to post this one, even if it was not so exciting. With Aria and my mom at lunch today at BJ's.

Tucked In Tight

A rare sight: staying underneath the cover.

Any Day Now

Supak and me, both more than ready for the deliveries...
