On and Off

Sienna has discovered that she can turn lights on and off. This morning I caught her taking her stool to reach the light switch and turning the lights in our bedroom on and off. It was really funny because she was so excited.

California History Museum

Today we spent the day at the California History Museum in LA. They have a butterfly exhibit that is wonderful for the kids and great for photographers. Did you know that the life expectancy of a butterfly is two weeks?! At the exhibit, they bring in new butterflies every two weeks to replenish the ones that have passed away.

Tessa and her shoes

Tessa has a wonderful spirit. She is truly her own person. Today she decided she wanted to wear a pair of shoes that matched. If you look closely, you will see that these two shoes do match in shades but they are different colored shoes.

Pizza celebration

Today we are celebrating Father's Day. You may ask why we are celebrating it 2 days earlier but Andres is shooting a wedding this Sunday and will not be around for Father's Day. So we choose today to honor this every special man in our lives. We made his favorite dish Pizza. Everyone made their own and Andres being a wonderful father and husband cooked them for us. I can not begin to say how bless the girls and I are. We have a wonderful, wonderful man in our lives that is full of passion, love and spirit. He is our hero.

It's a Boy!

Today we went to do our genetic counseling and had an ultrasound. This was not our first ultrasound but it was our first time we had asked what we are having. The doctor did the ultrasound and did his measurements. The baby had its legs crossed so he could not initially see what was going on down there. Suddenly, the baby moved slightly and there in the mist was what seemed to be a penis. "Its a boy", he said, "congratulations." We were really excited and kind of in shock because we both thought it would be a girl. Andres sent me some flowers earlier in the day to say that he loves me and is excited about our new adventure. It is going to be awesome!
