Daddy gave the site a quick facelift. :) We turned the site into a regular blog with links to our photo galleries and guestbook (and external favorites!) on the sidebar. Doing this gave us quite a few options for new graphical themes and we chose one that had clean lines and similar colors to our old layout. We also categorized all the blog posts so you can find posts by categories such as holidays, birthdays, events, outings, family updates (usually, these are updates on what the girls are up to or what they’ve accomplished), etc. We still need to update the themes for the photo galleries and guestbook to match the new front page theme, tho. We also want to make the picture at the top a randomly chosen one from a group of images (UPDATE: this is working now - for now, we’ve got 5 images up there - keep refreshing/visiting until you see them all!). Look for these updates soon!

Let us know what you like or don’t like about the new look!

P.S. Don’t forget, the photo galleries are now linked on the top right —>

P.P.S. Photos links are over there —> :)

Update (9:00PM): Photos through the end of 2007 are now up in the galleries! Almost there… :)

No, this isn’t a post about the girls when they don’t get what they want. ;) It’s a little PR for daddy’s new game that was just announced on Valentine’s Day.

Deadly Creatures

Daddy’s been working on this Nintendo Wii-exclusive game for over a year now. He’s mostly been responsible for writing the code for how the wii controller interacts with the game and the code for the combat systems and some of the camera systems. Here are a couple links:http://www.deadlycreaturesgame.com/ - this is the main site where you should always be able to find the latest information

http://wii.ign.com/articles/852/852222p1.html - this is the most in-depth preview that came out on our announcement day, there’s a few exclusive screenshots here that aren’t on the main site

Leave some comments to let us know what you think!

We’re back online (actually, we never really left, but now we’re up to date :)) with a slightly new look and a TON more photos (but minus the movies for now - that’s next). Daddy finally got smart and realized the only way he was going to keep this thing up to date regularly was to use somebody else’s blog and photo gallery code instead of trying to build it himself. Anyway, here are the results…look around and see what you think. The biggest difference is in the breadth of photos that are up there now - before there wasn’t much before the girls were born whereas now the Mom & Dad gallery is populated back almost as long as we’ve been together. Also, we are basically current with photos - all the way up through the end of September of this year. We’ll probably start uploading batches of photos on a monthly basis from here on out (with blog posts possibly being a little more frequent than that). Anyway - enjoy the new photos - there will be a post about what’s going on shortly…

Merry 1st Christmas!!

Our first Christmas was very fun. We got (literally) a wagonload of presents - and those were just from Mommy and Daddy and Santa Claus - Nana and Tata brought even more! Most of the time, we had more fun tearing the paper than playing with our presents, but we still had a good time. :)

Our favorite present is our wagon. Nana uses it to take us outside on walks almost every day - we love to go outside!

Today we’re 8 months old! We’re 2/3 of the way to our 1 year birthday! Pretty sophisticated math for 8 month olds, huh? :)

Happy Birthday Mommy!

Today is Mommy’s birthday! It’s her first birthday with us. Since it’s a Monday, we went out over the weekend. Nana and Tata took us all out to Black Angus. We had a lot of fun and got to try some ice cream that was part of Nana’s dessert. It was very yummy! Unfortunately, Yaya got sick and threw up a little bit (before the ice cream), but, other than that we had a great time!

Tonight we went and had Mommy’s favorite pizza - Peter Piper Pizza! We sat at the table in high chairs with everyone else. While feeding Yaya some pizza sauce, she bit down and we were clued in to the fact that she has sprouted two little teeth in the bottom front of her mouth! Upon further inspection, we also noticed that Mimi has one tooth coming in in the same place!

We also got to ride the teeter-totter ride. Mimi seemed more than a little worried that she was going to “teeter” off of it, but Yaya loved every minute of it. I guess we know who’s going to be Daddy’s ride buddy at six flags someday and who’s going to keep her feet planted firmly on the ground with Mommy! :) There are videos of us on the ride in our galleries - go check them out!

Crawling!

Mommy and Daddy got to witness us crawling along the floor for the first time today! Mommy held a magazine out in front of us and we were so interested in it, we crawled towards it to try and read it for ourselves!

Check out our videos of it in our galleries! Mia. Yasmine.

6 Month Doctor’s Appointment

Today was our 6 month checkup at the doctor. Mia weighed in at 15.5 lbs. and was 25.0 inches long while Yasmine weighed 16.9 lbs. and was 25.5 inches long. Somehow, Yasmine has pulled ahead in the size categories! More shots = yukky! :(

Both girls are now able to stand while holding onto something (i.e. a coffee table, etc.)! This is a pretty big achievement, but Mommy and Daddy are gonna have to start getting some workouts in so we can keep up with them when they start running around!

Happy 1/2 Birthday!

Today is the girls’ 6 month birthday! It’s SO HARD to believe that it’s been 6 months already. My, how the time flies when you’re having a blast! :) Mommy and Daddy are each going to buy the twins a special gift to mark the big day and we’re going to have a little b-day party with cake and ice cream! =D YAY!

We should have a picture update pretty soon…

Also, on the list of coming events - Monday is the girls’ 6-month checkup at the pediatrician so keep out an eye for height/weight updates! :)

FYI, both girls are also doing pretty well at sitting upright on their own - we’re sure it won’t be long before they’re crawling around here and confusing Mommy and Daddy!
