Sparky and Kate Diptych

Yesterday the kids went to Cal Elite in Rancho for Shelby’s birthday party. Sparky was awash in a sea of blue, while atop the mat at the gym and Kate was flying high like she always does when she’s on the trampoline.

Playball – yesterday

Kate has found a weekly sports activity group called Playball, literally 300 yards up the road from Tony & Moira’s house. (And this program is incredible for kids). All day yesterday morning all she could ask is:  “When are we going to Playball?” (not til 3). She took a nap and we could barely wake …

Selection of Images from Kate’s 4th Birthday Party

Catching up on the blog post from this past weekend’s mega Princess and Heroes birthday party in honor of Kate’s 4th. We had the cupcakes and champagne and, of course, the bounce house, but more importantly, we were surrounded by friends and my sister Mary and her husband Scott (near the end of their visit). …

Sparky

Second child syndrome?  Trying to avoid that.  Here’s a couple of images from yesterday of Sparky.  His second tooth popped out — about 10 days shy of the four month mark.  He finally slept through the night (well from 7 pm to 5:15 a.m.) last night, so I actually have a wife walking around the …

Side by Side

This image was made the day after Christmas with Sparky on the bed and Kate on the bed, too.  He’s not even four months old and it seems like he’s almost halfway as big as Kate.  On the first exam with Dr. Ball, our pediatrician, he estimated that Sparky would grow to be about 6 …

Busy Halloween Day

We had a fantastic Halloween weekend. Kate dressed up as Cinderella, wearing a dress hand-made by Granny Moira in S. Africa. But after Nicki bought a witch hat as a last-minute costume for the party hosted by Jason and Jodi, Kate had to get a miniature witch hat, too.  She of course wore it as …

Baby Matthew at Home

A few images of the baby at home yesterday — 10 days old!!  He’s also been getting much attention from his big sis Kate, and may have picked up a little cold from her.  So much different than the experience of child birth and the first ten days were with Kate.

Kate Meets Sparky/Matthew | 9 • 15 • 09

Kate couldn’t wait to meet her new little brother, even though she was a bit disappointed that Sparky wasn’t the little baby girl she had hoped for.  You’d never know it for the minute she saw him, she couldn’t wait to hold him. My Mom who is visiting us and helping us for a month …
