April Fool’s Day with a 4.5 and 6 year old is awesome. Sooo awesome. Although, after a while, I have to admit, I got a little tired finding toys in my beverages. Heh.
I really can hardly stand their cuteness. It’s just overwhelming.
The dog trick–Ollie’s turn.
And they had other tricks not captured by film/Iphone:
Ollie thought it was absolutely hilarious to place different objects in front of Joe’s office door. He didn’t even wait for Joe to come out, just the act of doing it was enough to entertain him. Seriously, he almost peed his pants laughing at his 4-year-old cleverness.
Noah thought he was pretty brilliant by switching things from my Joe’s night stand to mine and vice versa. He also did the same with our closets. Heh. Very cute.
I love my life so very, very much.
(Sorry for the late posting of this very important news—everything goes on Facebook these days!)
We’re so happy to welcome Simon Lewis Cheng into our family! He was born on June 8, 2010, weighing in at a healthy 8 lbs, 7 oz.
Ten fingers, ten toes, and everything else appears to be in working order as well!
Noah and Ollie are doing great with their new baby brother, especially Ollie, who takes his new role of “big brother” very seriously.
We’re so thankful to God for blessing us with another amazing little person to take care of. Simon has already brought so much joy into our home!
A few months ago, Ollie discovered the Voice Memos app on Amy’s iPhone. Since then he’s recorded dozens of clips, but this was the best.
Listen: Noah Sings the Kipper Song
(Compare to the actual Kipper theme song.)
Ollie is so helpful in the kitchen…
Although…I suppose a bit wasteful. It’s okay, his cuteness makes up for it. heh.
So, I don’t really have a story here. I just think these are adorable. I love my little guys so much! Even when they’re upset, they are cute! hehehe.
This one of Ollie just sends me over the edge. He was so annoyed at me cause I kept taking so many pictures. But I got this awesome expression from him, which makes the crying afterwards TOTALLY worth it! haha. Sorry bud, but your Mom is crazy…and you are CUTE!
Just showing off Noah’s sweet Chinese skills. Thanks to his Amah & Yeh Yeh.
The other day, a stranger asked me if Noah knew any Chinese. I told him he could count to ten…then Noah proceeded to count to thirty! I must say I was a very proud, and shocked, mommy. And the man was very jealous that Noah had such awesome Grandparents that teach him so well.
Ollie is CRAZY about Otter Pops. He wants them ALL the time. I recorded this cause I just LOVE the way he says popsicle. hehehe.
In case you are wondering….he eventually won. I know, I know…but look how cute he is when he EATS the popsicle.
I know this is slightly late. heh. But here it is anyway…
I thought the Easter Bunny did a pretty awesome job this year. Actually…I didn’t even try to pretend. When Noah said “Thanks Mommy”, I just said “You’re welcome.” Honestly…the Easter bunny kinda creeps me out.
Noah got his first pair of ‘safety scissors’ and wow, was Ollie jealous. Told Ollie he’d get a pair next year and that didn’t go over so well. So, they get equal scissors time now, and to Ollie’s credit, he handles them QUITE well. I was impressed.
This was the ONE piece of candy in their Easter baskets. I know…I’m so cruel. Sorry….but most of that Easter chocolate is NOT fair trade, and since I am Miss ANTI-slavery, that’s just how it goes kids.
I, thankfully, did not have to hide eggs, since the kids were invited to a joint birthday party the day before Easter for their friends Meadow & Max. They both have extremely talented moms. Here’s just a sample of the decor…
Noah, sadly, now POSES for pictures. Ugh.
Waiting patiently…for ONCE!

Joe’s mom (the boys call her Amah) sent this story to us after they babysat the boys this week. I love it.
“While in Vancouver, I saw this cute pastry shaped like a banana, and it has big lettering: BANANA on it. I bought a box of two for Noah and Ollie.
To let Noah practice his alphabet, I said, "Noah, what does it say?"
Noah ran his pointer through the letters, and read without hesitation, "not a hot dog".
(Joe took this picture by the way. Pretty great, huh?)
