my 3 year old

micah turned 3 today, he's such a big boy. i'm so proud of my boy!

he woke up in a great mood. then went to school and we met him there later to bring pizza & cupcakes for his class.

we celebrated with our families for dinner. i tried my best to make him a garbage truck cake. making cakes is not for me. i'll stick to cookies. at least he was happy with the cake.

before he went to bed, i asked him what his favorite part of his birthday was. i was sure he was going to say it was when he got one of his cool new toys. but he said it was the cake i made! i love love love him!

more school pics

lia came home with her school picture today. every year when she comes home with her school pictures, i just stare at them and can't believe how much she has grown up already. (even though she has worn this dress in one of her preschool pictures. her look has changed, but her size is a different story.) she wanted her hair curled for this one. and i was very surprised when she didn't want her usual bling necklace on. she makes me smile.

preschool pics

preschools nowadays seem to take pictures 3-4 times a year. it's kinda nice since they grow so fast and their faces change so much within a couple of years. these are my favorite so far. my little man in a tux. he told me he was going to marry me. cute, but i don't even want to think about him getting married, i'll start to cry. anyways, his BFF right now is adrian. last year it was diego. but they're all his friends. micah said adrian likes garbage trucks too.

then comes baby in the baby carriage

malia comes home yesterday and tells me she learned a new song at school. "but it's kinda bad," she said. i asked her what she meant. she said, "you say a boy and a girl's name, and then you spell the word kissing." she told me she thought the song was funny at first, until they used her name in it. then she realized it was considered teasing. even though i knew the song (everybody does), i asked her if she could sing it to me so i would know what she was talking about. she was embarrassed to sing it, and it was funny because she used herself and micah for the song. "it's just an example," she said, "but i won't sing the song to tease anyone." at least i know i taught her something right.

grandparents day at micah's school

last friday, micah's school celebrated grandparent's day. i'm glad roel's parents were able to go to see him at school and have breakfast with him. he really enjoyed it. it was the first thing he told me when i picked him up. "grandma and grandpa came to my school," he said as he was running toward me. they really made his day.

it's been a while

i like to post at least once a week because my memory is just horrible, but life has been chaotic the past couple of weeks. my dad went to the hospital on 8/31 for a subdural hematoma, which is bleeding in the brain area. he was in the ICU, but thank God it wasn't as serious as it could have been. he went home after 3 days and no surgery was needed. he will just be monitored. he just has a headache that won't go away because of the pressure in his head. hopefully it will resolve on its own. he does plan to go back to work and resume his normal activities as tolerated. we will just continue to pray for him and help him out in any way we can.
