There are plenty of new pictures up today. Look at Yasmine’s Gallery to see our first captured pic of one of the babies smiling (and then look at the range of emotions that follows!). Head on over to Mia’s Gallery to see her in a bunny suit.

Update: We’ve run out of space on our main account so the thumbnails aren’t showing up for the new pictures. You can still click the empty box and they will show up, though. We’re working on the issue. Thanks for your patience!

Our First Smiles!

Today on daddy’s way out the door, Mia and Yasmine both gave him a few smiles to think about while he is out of town for the next few days. Giving them kisses and saying, “YAY!” works pretty well for getting the grins to come out.

Unfortunately, it seems to be an if-they’re-in-the-mood type of thing so we don’t have any smiling pictures yet, but we’ll post them as soon as we get some!

Happy Anniversary Mom And Dad!!

Today marks the 4th wedding anniversary of Anthony and Noelia. This year has certainly been the most eventful for us with the high point obviously being the birth of Mia and Yasmine. It’s absolutely amazing how fast time flies (especially when you’re having fun) - it seems to have gone even faster in recent weeks… ;) While 4 years is by no means an eternity, it does feel like quite some time ago that we were saying our vows in the park. We’ve since lived at 4 different addresses, had 5 different jobs and 5 different cars between the two of us, and (most importantly) made 2 beautiful baby girls. It’s definitely been a full 4 years!

Not to get mushy on anybody, but we really are some of the luckiest people I know. We have a wonderful marriage, two wonderful little girls, a wonderful dog, a great house, and great jobs. I know I speak for the whole family when I say that we wouldn’t trade a bit of it for anything in the world. And somehow, amazingly enough, it still manages to get better and better year in and year out. Feels like a dream…

P.S. Lots of new pics today!!

The girls (and Mom and Dad!) took their first step down the long hard road to intellectual enlightenment today when Mom and Dad opened up college savings accounts for them at the credit union. Maybe, just maybe, with a few more deposits, they won’t have to panhandle for tuition by the time they get there! ;)

Mia and Yasmine are now 1 month old. They have met over 50 friends and family (including their Great Grandfather) and are an international hit in Mexico. They are called the “Dos Gringas” due to their complexion. They recently had their 1 month check up at the doctor and are doing great. Mia weighed in at 7.4 lbs and 21 inches while Yasmine weighed 7.2 lbs and 20.5 inches. During their examination Yasmine decided to release some stress by relieving herself on Dr. Khan (TWICE!). Mom has already begun to instill the shopping bug into the girls. They have visited quite a few stores and are stopped quite frequently thanks to gushing spectators. We have also discovered they like to be read to in times of panic. It can be anything from a children’s book to a phone bill, as long as you continue to communicate they are amused. We have updated our website with a few pictures from our adventure in the park last Sunday please take a peek.
