Cute pictures from today

Today the family headed over to Baltimore with a mission. To have some much needed "Brady time" (aka a play date with one of Kobi's buddies) and scope out a girlfriends new addition. Yep... as if Brady was not one of the cutest little kiddo's you've ever seen now he's got an equally cute bro that we affectionately call baby Bennett. Baby Bennett was so calm and sweet and felt like air. He is a very healthy baby but after you carry a 33 pounder around an 8 pounder was nothing! LOL! Kobi would glance over as I helded him but seemed virtually unaffected. However I think that was all a front because as soon as we got in the car he screams from the backseat "Mama Hold You"! His English gets a little messed up at times but I think that was code for "that wasn't cool" :)
On another note Kobi is eating EVERYTHING! I can't keep up! For example just the other day I gave him oatmeal and a banana for breakfast (like I do every morning before school) and as soon as I dropped him off he ate again only this time it was 3 more bowls of cereal. The following day at grandma's house he ate 3 plates of dinner (pork chops, macaroni and cheese, green beans, ice cream) all of which he never ever eats then came home an hour later and ate half of a Digiorno pizza with daddy, grapes and crackers all before going to bed! Oh and the other night he ate half of a Gyro all by himself! He hates meat! Hey I'm just happy he's getting the protein. Tonight we went to a Chinese buffet because frankly if he's going to eat like that I can't be cooking every 5 minutes. Oh who am I kidding I don't cook but I would feel bad watching daddy run back and forth between the kitchen. Hehe! Must be a growth spurt? I put some pj's on him tonight which now look like capri's. I swear he's grown at least 2 inches in one week!

Working on a Project

Okay to all you Taiwanese adoptive parents. If this is your child's foster mama from Taichung (see picture above) I am putting together a Shutterfly booklet, etc... to send for Taiwanese New Year! I think she would be very excited to see all her foster bambinos growing so big so if you want in on the action email me at It might be cool to have for all the kiddos too to look back at other adoptive babes who probably slept in the same crib. This is something I've been meaning to do for awhile. Also I am totally up for suggestions so by all means leave comments! I am also up for creating a video to send so if you have video clips or DVDs you want me to edit (nothing fancy) then send them my way. So who's in? :)

And the best remote control ride goes to....

This thing right here. Why you may ask? Well I'll just tell you. It is a blow-up! You heard me right. A blow-up toy that will put no dings in your nice tables, no bruises on your legs and neatly deflates to store away safely in a bin taking up no space whatsoever unlike just about all those toys your kiddo has accumulated since birth! (Click here for where to buy) Grandma bought it for Christmas and I cant tear Kobi away from it!
