This past weekend we went for our first swim of the summer. First, daddy tested out the waters and then he came and got us so we could join in the fun! It was pretty cold at first, but we got used to it quickly (especially since we were having so much fun!).

Daddy’s note: it’s going to be SO nice to get our first FULL summer of swimming out of our new pool - we’re very excited! :)

Mike, Courtney, and Zane also came over and Mommy and Daddy played pictionary and taboo with Mike and Courtney - we don’t know what those games are, but if the amount of screaming and laughing going on was any indication, it sounded like lots of fun!

2008_04_18_308.jpg This past Friday, we all went to see our long-time family friend Shaun get married to his girlfriend of 3+ years Erika. It was a beautiful and fun wedding complete with choreographed entrance walks, a singer, a swing dance by the bride and groom, breakdancers, and a scripted dance by the wedding party (among all the usual wedding hoopla)!

2008_04_18_360.jpg Fun times were had by all and we were happy to finally meet Shaun’s east-coast family and friends. Towards the end of the festivities, Mimi (and Yaya this time, too!) came out to dance again. After seeing the breakdancers, the girls appeared to be trying to duplicate their moves by running and skipping around the dance floor and kicking their legs up higher than usual. Mimi even did a body wave and Yaya did a superman (or girl, as it were) pose! (Sorry for the video quality below, but it was taken with Nana’s camera - watch all the way through to see Mimi’s body wave move!)

Also, we’re completely up to date on photos AND videos AND posts for the first time in recent memory - ENJOY!

The makeover from the old pink layout to the new and improved pink (oh wait, the girls have notified us it’s fushia - did I spell that right?) layout is almost done. Post formats are set in stone and we’ve got the new flash header with the cool transitioning pictures and the picture viewer on the side. Now we just have to finish getting caught up with adding pictures and a video gallery to the site - stay tuned!

P.S. The link under “Pages” on the sidebar titled “February 2004” is a preview of what our new photo galleries are going to look like.

Update 11:30PM: While Courtney and Mommy were watching Enchanted, we now have our video gallery finally posted! Click on “Videos” under “Pages” on the sidebar on the right –>…or click here. :)

Yet more pictures added!

Happy Halloween 2007!
Now we’re caught up through the end of 10/07. You’ll be able to see the finished product, in terms of our pool project and some of the fun we had with it once it was finally done. You’ll also get to see Mommy’s birthday cake and the girls’ Halloween costumes. You might notice that they wore them A LOT during the month of October - and with good reason - Nana spent hours open hours sewing all those beads and sequins on to them. :)

We’re almost caught up!

P.S. I’ve setup a reminder for myself to make sure we update more regularly. ;)

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…

Today we’re 10 months old! Only two more months ’til out 1 year birthday! We’re so excited we could scream! Speaking of scream - we hope there’s lots of ice cream at our party that day - we love that stuff!

One highlight from this month is that Yaya now likes to play peek-a-boo - she’ll play with objects by ducking below them or by bringing cloth things over her head and then pulling them down. Mimi is starting to stand by herself without holding onto anything.

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.
