I have been experimenting with all sorts of different foods to give Kobi lately. It just occurred to me that Easter is coming up and of course we will be dying Easter eggs so why not see if Kobi likes hard boiled eggs?? Here's the outcome...Lunchtime mama! Whats on the menu?What's this...am I suppose to shove the whole thing in my mouth?Like this!?Aww...gross!
At least that's finished now where's the real food?
***I'm guessing that eggs are not Kobi's favorite***
It was such a nice spring day that mama and daddy took me out of the house to get some fresh air!1st I started to cry and refused to sit in my stroller. So then daddy carried me...That's Dr Eric. (He's a daddy in training and loves to take lots of pictures!)...I had so much fun standing on the rocks...Then before I knew it Mrs Lisa had to go to the bathroom and daddies arms hurt, so we had to go but I loved playing outside...cant you tell?I know, I know. I'm a ladies man. (Very soon Mrs Lisa will have her own baby to do this to!)...I was so tired from my hike that I slept the whole way home.A NOTE FROM SHERRY: Its not easy getting Kobi to smile in every picture. Almost all of them are cropped! This picture shows the "real" reason why Kobi has such a huge smile...he's hitting daddy in the face with his right arm. Doesn't the 1st picture look so innocent?
One month ago I had Kobi's pictures taken professionally by Julie Lutz Hipkins. She is a wonderful photographer in Maryland and I will definitely use her again. She was great with Kobi and took some beautiful black and white shots right here at home. Of course Kobi would not stay put thru out the entire shoot but she did get some great pictures of "True Kobi". I love all of his silly facial expressions and sure enough she captured a lot of them. So here are just a few...ENJOY!!
Hard to believe that my not-so-little guy was born 10 months ago today! As of lately he says dad-da constantly, he loves to eat everything in sight & his new buddy is Arctika (our youngest and now only husky). I catch him pounding on her like a drum but yet she does nothing...what a good dog! He is also working on many different facial expressions (I love this picture it's cheesy and shows all his teeth)as well as playing the new game of "drop down". In this game he stands up and plops down as quickly as possible. He's a pro at it:) Now if I can only teach him that you shouldn't try this on concrete. (I'm working on that one.) He is still an excellent sleeper (a full 12 hours plus 2 naps during the day) and I feel honored and blessed that he is mine! Its like God knew I don't do well in the mornings and gave me this perfect child that takes right after me. Thank you lord! Everyday he gets a little more cuddly, a little more clingy. Its hard to believe that he has only been in our family 3 months. I remember how each day of waiting for "The Call" dragged and dragged but now that he is here all that anxiety, all those teary nights are just a memory.
***To all you waiting families Kobi and I hope your babies come home soon. That you to can experience all those cheesy smiles, the game of drop-down & hopefully restful nights just as we do. We are thinking of you guys and hang in there because hopefully real soon you will have your babies:)
I made this video for Kobi. Its not our "Gotcha Day" video (as that is still in the works) but I thought I would share this with all of you. It is a 9 minute video with lots of pictures taken by me in Taiwan. (This is a very amature video) It was the first movie I attempted so please be kind:) I wanted to make Kobi a short video that showed only footage of Taiwan and its countryside. I can only imagine as he gets older he will wonder what Taiwan was like and so I made this for him. I wish that I had more then a week to travel around the beautiful island, to see more of "true" Taiwan but unfortunately I did not and so this video/ pictures were mainly taken in Taipei. Its quite long but I did add music so I hope you all enjoy:)
JULY 1997- MARCH 2007My poor baby Glacier past away last night. He was 9 years old. I considered him my 1st baby and had him since he was 6 months old. Matthew was going to walk him and discovered he had departed. It seems he past while he was asleep of natural causes. I have never had a dog past away on his own before and certainly not under my roof so last night was quite difficult...we will love and miss our dear Glacier.
