When Morbidly Obese Angry Cats Attack…with Urine. (And Vacation Photos!)

It’s 3 a.m. and I am awake googling the words, “How to remove cat urine odor from a bounce house.” Based on the results, or lack there of, I am fairly certain I may be one of the sole unlucky humans to ever google this phrase. In case you’re wondering, you can power wash a bouncy house. I know, because I did it using soap designed to clean mildew off of siding. In case you are also wondering, while pressure washing...

Ada’s Big Birthday Surprise!

I realized that I never posted the pictures and video of Ada’s big birthday trip! Her birthday was in April. I’m a little late. My parents took us to Newport Aquarium because they have a program where you can pay extra to meet the penguins up close. Ever since Ada was tiny she has loved penguins! It actually started when she was less than a year old and we went to the same aquarium with my parents. Ada saw a stuffed...

Hiking Pictures!

Man, I guess we have germs. Last week Henry randomly got watery diarrhea. I thought he drank some of the soapy water from the water table they were playing in the day before. He had wanted bubbles in it so I added dish soap. I told him not to drink it, but there was a few minutes where he was alone with it and you know how toddlers (especially boys) can be. But yesterday, 7 days since Henry was sick, Ada...

Ada Turns Six!

I can’t believe my squishy baby is now six years old. It’s crazy, how did this go by so fast? I remember when I spent so many hours cuddling her, nursing her, and kissing her huge chipmunk cheeks. This was the first time Ada and Rosie met each other! And on her sixth birthday… She’s so big now. She’s spunky, and goofy, and really smart. Here’s a vlog of her birthday, ending with opening gifts and blowing out the candles on...

Ballet Vlog!

  Here’s a vlog from Ada’s dance class last Thursday. Ada *really* wanted me to video her practicing for the recital coming up in May. After ballet we went to Chick-Fil-A, which is also in the vlog. This Thursday’s ballet class on Ada’s birthday. She’s so excited to tell her ballet teacher!

Slo Mo Trampoline FUN!

Ok, so my voice in slo mo when jumping on the trampoline equals hilarity. I sound completely drunk and wasted. “Dooooo youuuuur magic moooooves…!” Can’t stop laughing. In the second half of this vlog Ada graphically loses her top front tooth. Huge milestone!  

Magic Kingdom Disney Surprise 0

More Disney!

We went to Epcot for one of our days at the Disney parks. Traditionally Epcot has been my favorite of all the parks, but this was the first time I’ve ever tried to go with little kids. Let’s just say it was not nearly as fun to visit all the countries with little ones in tow… And at one point Henry accidentally peed on his shirt in the bathroom, which meant I had to take his shirt off. As luck would...

We’re Home! (Disney Videos!)

We made it back from Orlando yesterday afternoon. Henry was wild on the flight home. I think he was just exhausted from the entire week. He was also upset to leave my parents. :( We had a great week! The kids loved Disney World. The first day (Sunday) we went to Magic Kingdom. It was so crowded. Oh my gosh. We could barely even walk!! I thought this was supposed to be the off season! I expected it to be more...

New Glasses!

I have a lot to write, but I’m dead tired at the moment. But I wanted to go ahead and post this– Rosie got new glasses AND she got two teeth pulled yesterday! Before I fall asleep I also wanted to add a huge thank you for everyone who contributed to Vladik’s hosting fees (previous entry). I’ll post an updated grid soon. I’m working on uploading our vlog from today. We had a big surprise this afternoon! I’ll post it tomorrow....

DonutFace Vlog!

I’ve been thinking a lot about Vladik and Igor lately. We haven’t talked to Igor since he got back to Ukraine. He can use his roommate’s phone to Skype with us, but he hasn’t. I know better than to take it personally. Life is just unfair. I love that kid. Despite everything, I love him and I will never stop. I’ll never forget the way the top of his head smells, just like one of my own children. I still haven’t...
