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!

Pre-Easter Fun!

Last weekend was our neighborhood egg hunt. We’ve never lived here at Easter before, so I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. Egg hunts back in Kentucky kind of sucked–all the ones we went to were like frantic egg grabs, parents encouraging their kids to take as many eggs as possible, little kids crying, some kids with no eggs and other kids loaded down. After three years in a row of horrible egg hunt experiences I was leary of taking my...

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...

Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!

I’m still trying to catch up on our vacation pictures and videos! We had such a great time. Did I mention that? On Tuesday of our vacation week we went to Universal Orlando to check out the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. SO EXCITING! I never thought I would be able to go there. Ever. A friend had connections who got us free Universal tickets. How awesome is that? My parents watched Ada and Henry back at the rental house so...

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....

The Facebook Page!

Hey look! We decided to go ahead and make a Facebook page for the blog and YouTube channel. I was afraid no one would like it. ;) The kids are having so much fun making vlogs. Even if not many people ever watch them, we’ll still have tons of cool videos for memories. But I’m really hoping we can use some revenue for hosting costs! Check out our page and like it if you’re on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/halfheardinthestillness Our latest video is...

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...
