da da da...

over this memorial day weekend micah started babbling da da. which is fair i guess since malia said mama first. but c'mon, i do deserve it =). so everything is da da da, when he's complaining or even when he's happy. i guess i have to be patient, my name will come eventually. maybe he's just giving me a break since malia says mama a hundred times a day.

my joy

every day my kids amaze me. malia is 4 and a half now. it's starting to be more obvious when she wants me to spend one on one time with her. so we sat and watched old disneyland trips. and it's when we watch home videos that i realize just how much she's grown in so little time. she still has that same sweetness about her that i hope she never outgrows. when it was time to go to bed, she asked me to stay for a few minutes, which i didn't mind because i was sleepy myself. so i sat beside her bed and put my head on her pillow with her. and she whispered,"i love you mama." of course i cried but she didn't see. she really is my joy, my malia joy.

daycare mom

so micah is now in daycare. technically malia is in her second year of daycare, but i never thought of her preschool as "daycare". we were blessed to have the grandparents watch the kids for so long, but we knew the day might come when we needed daycare. he's in good hands. he is rolling all over the place and will definitely crawl soon. malia loves picking him up and showing off that she is the big sister. so i'm alright with being a daycare mom, but my wallet isn't.

mama's day at disneyland

what a perfect way to start off a blog by saying we went to disneyland for mother's day! for us, it's a tradition that i started 2 years ago. i'd like to take the kids to disneyland as often as my mom took me and my sister. and i'm sure this tradition won't be one the kids won't object to even when they're older.

malia was so excited because she hadn't been back to disneyland in almost a year. we woke her up early in the morning. she was hesitant at getting up, but as soon as i told her to get dressed because we were going to disneyland, her eyes widened, and she started jumping up and down and screaming with excitement. of course micah didn't know what was going on. but it was so special, because it was his first time. we had breakfast with minnie and friends in the park. micah really liked the characters, especially tigger. he also enjoyed people watching. his first ride was buzz lightyear, it was also malia's first time to ride buzz. it was a bit crowded and of course we move slow with kids, but we had so much fun.
