To my sweet monkey boy

To my sweet monkey boy

I can remember looking at you as a tiny new person in this world thinking, “what will you become … how will you change my life”
It’s only going to be three years and nothing has been the same since I first saw you. Everyday Dad and I say, “he’s so funny and has so much personality” and its true. You make this family complete and my heart is whole.
This last year we have had so many great memories and lots of hardship. You’ve changed so much and have become such a big boy!
This is your year in review …

  • We celebrated you turning 2 with a Dinosaur party that was really awesome! Carlos Bday 2 041
  • Your favorite Dinosaur is a T -Rex & you pretend your a baby T-Rex
  • Favorite cartoons are – Dinosaur Train, Cat In The Hat & Daniel Tiger
  • You also love to pretend your a puppy but more than that you like to pretend you are a monkey and hang on things “hoo hoo ha ha”
  • You & sister love to play “hide out” and make tents in the room

  • You love tablet time with your tablet or watching shows with sister
  • For the first time this year you called Emery by her name! You also called her Ava and sis but you mostly stick with the name you gave her “wee wee” & that’s what mom and dad call her too (because its special).
  • Disneyland is your favorite place ever & you ask to go everyday.
  • You told mommy your favorite ride at Disneyland was the “whale ride” (Story Land). It was mommy’s first time going on it; hard to believe because I’ve been to Disneyland so many times, and even though its by far not one of my favorite rides its special to me because I went on it the first time with my two babies.

  • You love the Disney characters at the park! Your shyness goes away and hug everyone and take photos. It amazes me to see you so happy and out of your shell.

  • You are so sincere. You care & when you do bad you will come back to say you are sorry for your mistake. I really like that about you, it shows you care and it impacted you.
  • If I ask you, “are you okay?” you wont just say “yes” you tell the truth and always say, “no” haha.
  • You get upset a lot
    DSCN2176
  • You make the funniest mad face ever
  • You have the best expressions

    Vampire Pirate

    “Let me see your eye Pirate” – Uncovers his eye hiding from the patch haha

  • Loud noises bother you
  • You went to the snow for the first time at Sequoia National Park
    YTClip1
  • You haven’t figured out how to use “I” in sentences. Everything is “me want to” “me no like” but our  favorite is “me do me do!”
  • This year you got potty trained!  & pretty fast  🙂
  • Mommy finally weaned you off of ninny. It was bitter sweet and I think we both miss it still.
  •  You and Dad call our bed the monkey nest
  • You like to wet your hair and slick it back. I think you look like Dad when he was a kid.
  • You have a red tricycle that you are very good at riding. You ride it in the house every day and park it out side the room you go to. It’s really cute.
  • You hate water in your face but you are brave enough to lay on your back in the tub
    20150627_212217 (1)
  • Favorite cereal – Lucky Charms

    20160111_082006

    Mondays … Am I right?

  • For some reason you think I want all of your boogers … I don’t. Stop giving them to me.
  • “oh. Yeah, silly me”
  • You love vegetables. It’s the first thing you will eat on a plate. Broccoli is your fave.
  • Favorite fruits – strawberries. green apples, tomatoes & oranges
  • “what’s cooking homie”
  • At the check out – “Thank you homie” 😐
  • Monkey hands
    (mittens we bought specifically because you needed more “monkey hands”)
    20160116_223722
  • & Monkey feet

    20160116_223642

    Mittens on the feet to look like monkey feet is genius! & Hilarious

  • You love going over to Grandma Yvette’s house & Great Grandma & Papa’s house but you don’t like saying hi but love to say bye.
  • “Lion King your head” is either your insult or a joke.
  • You love the beach but it took you awhile to get into the water. You said you were scared because the whales and sharks lived in the water. Very smart for a 2 year old to recognize!

Emery you’re 5!

Emery you’re 5!

Emery’s actual birthday was a small get together keeping with her Frozen theme.
Before Emery had arrived Victor and I decided we would get her ears pierced on her 5th birthday if she wanted, but not before. We wanted to make it a right of passage for her into becoming a big girl and having her ears done right before school started. Also we didn’t want her earrings hurting her head when she laid down or her messing around with them and getting her ears agitated as a baby.
Before her big day we asked if getting her ears done was something she would want to do and it was. Her aunt who was a few years older had hers done and her best friend Lauryn had earrings. The afternoon of her birthday we took her to get her ears pierced and while I kept telling her it will hurt it was obvious she didn’t understand.

She cried and screamed but after a few short minutes they pain subsided and we were walking out of the mall with a new stuffed animal and some frozen yogurt.

Those new earrings :) Fancy!

The day was hers and she knew it, we did all things Emery wanted: earrings, yogurt, Figaros for lunch, pizza for dinner with rainbow cupcakes with chocolate frosting.

Carlos was pretty excited about the cupcakes

Ending your first day of being 5 on a sweet note

Thank you to all who showed up to make our little one and her little party a little extra special.

Great Grandma and Great Papa handed down cousin Yvette’s favorite movie, Charlotte’s Web to Emery.

20150611_210718Every birthday I always want a picture of me and the kids but for some reason it never happens. Again, this is the best I could get but at least I got one this time! We love our little Princess.

HIGHLIGHTS OF EMERY BEING 4!!

Early in the year she came up with the idea of having a, “No rules, anything goes” birthday. However she failed to mention this was her new motto for life after she turned 5. Apparently I agreed that rules don’t apply to her anymore.

Emery is well on to becoming a Starbucks gold card member with her ordering skills: “Can I have a chocolate milk with whip cream on the top and chocolate on the bottom” even spelling your name out for the lady so she gets it right.

In your ripe age you have discovered the finer things in life. No longer are you addicted to the simple Kraft Mac N Cheese, you now only exclusively eat Panera’s Macaroni and cheese. Grandma Yvette made the mistake of asking Emery if she wanted macaroni and cheese and Em was excited until she saw the food in front of her and didn’t eat it,  “It’s not Panera’s” in her valley girl voice she some times does (& is a running joke with grandma Yvette and I)

Basically I’m saying I created a monster

Em got her first comic book with Dad, My Little Pony

In her words, “I just want to be popular” & I am sure you will be because you are funny and sweet. Stay that way, no one likes a mean girl with a bad attitude.

Your vocabulary has grown so much! You impress us everyday

You are a ranch maniac

No shame in your game
