Here is a video capturing what Jade loves to say, ELLA! Ella is one of her older friends from church. We never tried to teach her but she just started saying it. She must really love her because she will say her name over saying dada. Also, you will see in the video her first cut. She fell at a party this weekend. It was the first time that she drew blood. A couple of weeks ago that eye was stuck shut and now it's black. Poor little girl.

The main reason for the whole family to visit was for Stevie's baptism. It was such a great day.
We are so proud of you Stevie!
Then we all hit the beach.

Chandler, Sheridan, Jordan


It was great to have everyone here. Jade already misses everyone.....but now today her two aunties Em, and Nen are coming!!!


We could not get her to take her eyes off of the ride!

The FAM!

Jade had her first of many trips to Disneyland! She LOVED it!! We arrived when the park opened at 8:30 and stayed until 10:00pm! This was her first day of being gone all day with no chance of napping in her crib. She did great. She took three shorter naps in her stroller and was a happy girl. We went with my entire family. It was the first time in awhile that we have all been together. I was a little nervous of trying to please this many people(especially girls) at a theme park, but it went SO well. No tears!! We all even stuck together 90% of the day. The longest line was maybe 10 min and we got to ride all of our favorites multiple times! I was still sick and had no voice. Rides are less fun when you can't SCREAM!!

Jade loved the rides. On the scary ones like Pirates, and the Haunted Mansion, she would just hold on to us real tight while still wanting to see everything. We also saw OCTOMOM in the huanted mansion. She looked a little too good for having 8 babies in her tummy. Jade of course loved It's a Small World. By the end of the day she started signing "more" after the ride finished. It was her first time doing the sign. It was so cute.

It really was one of the best days ever!

Can't wait to go again tomorrow!!

Dan rides the bus to work and most days I go pick him up. Yesterday, I wasn't able to get him so he rode the bus home too. I decided to go meet him at the bus stop with Jade and this is what I saw coming off the bus.

I thought it was a joke at first and that he just wrapped a shirt over his head. He looked like he had just had plastic surgery! I couldn't believe that he had just rode the bus like that! Dan manages the Neurophysiology lab at UCLA hospital and they needed to test out some equipment and of course he wanted to try it out. Under the wrappings he has little sensors glued all over his head to measure his brain waves.

After I picked him up we went to the store...I saw a lot of people doing double takes. I wonder what his brain waves will look like??

Keep in mind this was the start of the Pirate eye. We couldn't get any good pics. Aren't they cute in their matching outfits?
Some friends at an Easter Party!


Now that she knows this sign she does it ALL the time! This girls loves to eat!

Pirate eye

Yesterday Jade woke up with one of her eyes stuck shut. Not a good way to start Easter. Poor little girl. Dan has been sick for almost 2 weeks now and finally went to the doctor. He has been coughing his guts up and has had a sore throat with red goopy eyes. The doc said it was just a virus and now I'm sure Jade has caught it. I have been sanitizing all week to try and prevent this but just yesterday I looked over and Dan was touching her tongue!!! Now we just need to get better before the whole fam comes out again in a week!!!
