3 Week Makeup-1 of 3

Alright folks. I'm terribly sorry for the massive delay in response time here. It's been just under 3 weeks since our last post and so I'm going to try and cram your inboxes & your readers with a few posts to catch ya'lls up so that it's not one incredibly long post. Here goes...

Things have been good. We've been pretty darn busy keeping up with the little ones, first and foremost. Family is always our primary objective and we've been having a blast forming this one. But going back to work, figuring out some x-mas time traveling, getting my schooling started up again, working around the house, doctor's visits, bike racing, ski patrolling, and well a few other things that we tossed into the mix have surely been keeping us occupied as well.

The little ones!!
--Well, Cyrus ain't that little anymore. This guy has gained more weight than I've seen any baby gain. He weighed in at 6lbs 6oz at birth. Than one week later, hey weighed in at 7lbs 1oz. That means that he didn't loose any baby weight, which most babies do. Then the next we had to go into the doctors again and he weighed in at 7lbs 4oz. He gained 3oz. over night. Needless to say, Cyrus is feeding well and greatly enjoying his boob time (lucky little booger). We couldn't say enough good words about little Cyrus. He's super calm, super mellow, and rather quite. He generally only fusses at night time when mamma's ready to go to bed. Lately he's been acting as a night owl. He likes to get a few good hours of sleep late in the evening and then we everyone else is ready to go to bed, BAAM!, little man is wide-eyed and checking everything out. It's been playing a little havoc on our sleep schedules, but we're getting by. He also hasn't gotten fully used to his bath's yet, hehee...

--And Arianna... She is surely growing up to be the little pistol pete that she's meant to be. We think its a mix of her age, her having a new little brother and being a Puerto Rican female. We all know just how crazy them Puerto Rican woman can be. Well, that's Arianna in a nutshell and at the energetic & ripe age of 1.5. Arianna has surely been keeping us on our toes. In fact, as I am typing this message she just pushed over her rocking chair to the counter tops and is getting into all of the stuff on the counter tops. LOL! Arianna has been rather demanding and clingy lately. But I honestly think it has more to due with her age than any sort of jealousy towards her brother. Either way, I know that she has been a handful for mamma while I am at work. Luckily indoor park is only a few block away and happens 3 days a week. Ari loves playing at indoor park and it's a good event to tire her in the mornings.

Along with KoKo, we try to get her out walking as much as possibly. Especially since the rains are about to come!

Aight, that's the kids. Their awesome, their each their own person and even with the frustrations we're having a blast with them. Here are a few more photos. Click on any of the photos (or the link on the side) to be directed to the web albums of photos. We've added quite a bit to all of them.

Next, onto some other events that have been taking up our time, in the next post...

Sincerely Yours,
