Chad's Blessing Day.

This past Sunday, John along with family and friends blessed our son. It was great to have all of our family traveling such long distance to support us on a very special day.
Chad is 2 months is just so darn cute!! He really is such a good baby. All he needs is lots of milk and a clean diaper, and all is well. He sleeps pretty much through the night. I think it's because he's got three sisters who fight to hold him during the day time so he doesn't really get to nap peacefully. So night time he takes advantage of sleeping without interruption.

He's beginning to smile and make super cute baby noises when we baby talk to him. He's just growing along accordingly, with cute baby chubs and all. I still cannot believe that I have a son. I am really enjoying him each and everyday. I love that Buffy, Chloe and Piper just adore him. I walked in on all three of them trying to change his poopy diaper. Poor little guy, he's going to have all these little mothers smoothering him.

Chloe: "Mom, do you know why snails are so slow?"

Jackie: "No, why are they so slow baby girl?"

Chloe: "Because they don't have a brain."

Jackie: "How do you know they don't have a brain?"

Chloe: "Because I smashed them and I did not see a brain."

What a great summer!

I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by, school has started and our family have had a great and busy summer. Between swimming lessons, birthday parties, beach parties and family get together that it hardly felt like we had time off at all. My kids spend 3/4 of the summer in the pool and the other 1/4 of the time at the beach. The girls are very happy to be back at school. Since Buffy and Chloe are both in schools, I now have 2 kids at home. Buffy loves being at school and if it was up to Chloe, I would be with her in school all day.

We celebrated Chad turning a month by going to Disneyland. We all had a great time, Chad slept the entire time we were there.

"We are DEVO!"

English Beat

Lead Singer of English Beat

John and I had a chance to go see 2 great bands this summer. Devo, one of John's favorite bands and English Beat, one of my favorites. The Devo concert was great, but as soon as John and Curtis starting moshing, I got claustrophobic and left the sea of people. The English Beat were fantastic! I am so glad to have had a chance to see them in concert, they are one of the best ska bands, next to the Specials. I am so stuck in the 80's when it comes to music. I love the music from the that era.
