So how are we?

It’s been almost two years since our last posting (we’ve updated with some photos here and there between then and now, but no real info). So, what have we been up to?

Heh – well, that’s a pretty long conversation, but here’s an attempt at a quick-ish version:

Mimi and Yaya are doing great. As you can see from the newly added pictures, they are as beautiful as ever – maybe moreso, if that’s possible… 🙂 Obviously, they’re walking and talking and currently going through the terrible 2’s (although, in our opinion, they could easily be a LOT worse than they are, so we’re not really complaining :)).

They’re very smart. They know their numbers 1-10 (plus a bit farther) in spanish and english, their abc’s in english, and TONS of other words in both spanish and english. They can speak in long sentences of 12-15 words or more (which is supposedly about 2-3x the normal amount for their age). They love books and various forms of video entertainment (tv, movies, video games – although they still need some help from Daddy with this). They’re very good at the movie theater and will sit quietly through an entire children’s movie – so they’re pretty well-behaved.

They love all kinds of toys with their favorites being cars, animals, dinosaurs, legos and, of course, books. Daddy’s working very hard to get them interested in football and it seems to be paying off as they can often be heard yelling “Go Cardinals!!” on football Sundays. They’re both very big helpers around the house – they’ll clean windows and tables with Nana and Mommy and help Daddy pick the toys up off of the floor. They are just wonderful to have around and we’re very lucky to have them! 🙂

Mommy is doing well. She is working in the design center for a local homebuilder and enjoys the job because it leverages her creative talents around the house. She also runs her own small business out of her own craft room in our house – it’s called Elements – check it out.

Daddy has struggled with health problems as of late (namely a torn left acl and two degenerate discs in his lower back), but other than that is doing well, too. He continues to work as a computer programmer for a local video game company.

And of course, Mayble is still alive and kicking. She’s almost 7 years old now, but you wouldn’t know it watching her run around chasing things that you throw for her. 🙂 (Although, sometimes we wonder because she does bark at things that don’t seem to be there…senility? Maybe? Hehe. :P)
