And then there were five

Surprise!!! We’re expecting Baby #3 in July 2017. A girl! ❤

Our baby boys will be kuyas (big brothers) and we are over the moon.

I have so much to catch up on here on the blog. Over a YEAR’S worth! We celebrated five years of marriage, we traveled to DC and Hawaii, the boys turned 3, they started PRESCHOOL (what?!), I really picked up speed with teaching calligraphy, and life is just flying by. Can’t wait to share more!

Big boys now

Hello there! Just a quick note to show you how big our boys are now!

As you can imagine, our hands have been very full these past few months. They’ve been potty training (going well!), seeing new places, and basically taking charge of our house. Most of the time, it’s loud, it’s messy, and it’s crazy, but these boys are so hilarious and sweet that we just love life right now.

Hoping to share an update each weekend starting with today. See you next time!

Halloween 2015: Two little cows

deleon twins halloween 2015

What does the cow say? Moooooooooooo!

The boys were the cutest cows ever for Halloween this year. They did an amazing job trick-or-treating! After the first house, they totally got into the groove.

Adrian even banged on a door that was slightly cracked open saying, “Open! Open!”

And after we would finish getting candy, Adrian would say, “Again! Again!”

One of the best parts was watching the boys each carry their own buckets while holding our hands and walking down the sidewalks. They must have been really fascinated with going out at night when it is so dark.

Lots of fun in my parent’s neighborhood for Halloween this year. But sorry, boys. No candy until you’re TEN. (You think I’m joking).

Where did our babies go? A quick update before they turn TWO.

Well, hello! It’s been way too long since I’ve posted here. Is anyone still out there?

With literally thousands of photos and videos between me and Jing, there is no way I could update this blog with everything we’ve been up to in the past several weeks. Here are a few of the boys at the park recently.

The boys are growing like weeds. They talk, sing, dance, laugh, play, run, and eat so much! It’s heartbreaking knowing we cannot possibly take a photo or video of every hilarious, witty, smart, and sweet thing they do. But we are living life and enjoying every minute of it.

I’ve said it a thousand times and I’ll say it before: The days are long, but the years are short. Many days can feel like an upward battle. The morning rush to get the boys ready, fed, and changed for day care. The commute to work. The long 9 hours at our office cubicles. The dash to daycare and back home, dinner-baths-playtime-bedtime. Whew! Things are never dull around our household.

I’ll be sure to put out a two-year update next week. I NEED to put out a two-year update next week.

Can you believe it? They’re turning two.

Our little babies have made it around the sun twice. It’s incredible.

Married life, four years later

Hooray for another year! Today marks our four year wedding anniversary. Four years of marriage and two kiddos later… we couldn’t be more blessed, happy… or exhausted!

Just wanted to share some memories of our special day because we can’t help but love to relive it as much as possible. It’s been a crazy ride since and I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

What’s better than a handwritten note? A handmade card!

I just finished my largest order ever, a set of 25 greeting cards! The cards were written with pointed pen, specifically a Zebra G nib and Sumi ink. The cards were white smooth A2 cards & envelopes.

Here’s a close up of each card!

I love these motivational quotes.
