Who’s who? πŸ˜€

I’ve been wanting to do a side-by-side of the boys for so long but the hard drive I saved all the photos of Baby Bear isn’t working. (I have bad luck with hard drives and printers. >_< ) But then I remembered that I blogged the 28 days Baby Bear and I lived at my dad’s while Brandon stayed in NorCal for work… Do we see a pattern here? Ha!

Anyway, Baby Bear was 6 months old so the photos I took are close to the age Baby Love is now, at 7 months! Can you tell who’s who? Haha! I also realized that I have quite a few of Baby Bear’s old outfits so I’m hoping to make more side-by-side shots. Stay tuned! πŸ˜‰

Baby Love’s first time crafting.


Hung up their Valentine’s ornaments on the letterboard.

Baby Bear wrote “You Got This” for the new year, knowing Brandon wouldn’t be around as much. It’s a great reminder every time I walk past it. ❀

I baked cookies with Baby Bear and my sister came over with frosting, sprinkles, and conversation hearts. This is their creation. So. Much. Love. πŸ™‚

And the biggest shout out to Shizuka. She comes over every week to help me with the boys… And to top it off this week, she came over with li xi, Vietnamese candy, and homemade Vietnamese food for Brandon and the boys to celebrate Tet! *tears* So so thoughtful of her.

This boy hit so many milestones this past week. He now sits up for bathtime, claps his hands, and CRAWLS. :’)


This is why I’m happy with our decision to stay near family. This is everything.

My dad may not be the easiest person to get along with but these little moments where he spends positive times with my kids make my heart full. ❀

Lastly, our new mailbox. This was the last design I wanted for the replacement but I’ve gotten over my hate toward it. It’s not THAT bad and it’s done. Our mail lady can put our mail in a standing box instead of leaning over and throwing it in the broken one. *eye roll* πŸ˜‰

Hope this week is a good one! πŸ™‚

Lots of Smiles,
Akiyo
