Savannah Yuki

Savannah is growing up so quickly I need
to record all her little milestones.
But there are some I was not quite
prepared for.
Here is my not so little girl, proudly
wearing a Hannah Montana dress given to her
by her most favorite teacher in the whole wide world.
A few more shoe sizes and a few more inches, we
will be the same size.
Of course that is not saying much when your mommy
is just 5 feet tall. But we keep telling the poor girl
she can't have boyfriends till she is as tall
as Aunt Holly. So reaching mommy's height
will be a big deal because she will
just have another foot to grow.

So here is what I was not quite prepared for.
I was just watching an old friends video on her blog
of the celebration of their daughter's second month.
I remember those days when Savannah loved me whole
heartedly and listened to every thing I said.
But then she learned to talk and formed her own opinions.
Here is what she looked like when I picked her up from school this
afternoon. Can you see it around her lips?
Her father bought her makeup saturday and we told her,
she is not allowed to wear it to school, church, or even out of the house.
Well, when I picked her up, I noticed
some on her face. I asked her if she had lipstick
in her bag and her reply was "Yes mommy,
it was accidentally in my bag." So I suppose
it accidentally hopped out of her bag and landed on those
lips and then was hastily wiped off lips when
Mommy's van appeared. I do not
wear makeup or know anything about makeup
so Aunt Holly and Krista (Lynette says
you are the two to go to),
can you please teach your
niece how to wear it appropriately when she finally becomes of age?
It will really help out my sanity.

On a different topic, but while I am here:
Ms. Ruby bit the tar out of her big brother
Ethan. Can you see it? He was sitting where she wanted to be
so she bit him. On the back! At church!
Some of you may have heard him scream before sacrament
Poor little fellow.
They have since made up, but I cannot believe
I am having to deal with such a thing. The
other 4 never bit.

A Young Man Turns 9

It is so hard to believe that my oldest boy turned 9 on Dec 30th. 9 years! Wow. We began our journey with little Larry at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD. My 17 week ultrasound had shown that I was carrying twins in which 1 twin had died just the week before. It was such devastating news. I remember lying there thinking do such things happen. The poor OB cried along with us. He honestly was not sure what the outcome would be for the living twin because it appeared the 2 babies shared a sac. Not only did they share a sac, but it also appeared the 2 might even be conjoined at the abdomen. Of course I went to a specialist who was able to determine the "syndrome." I really HATE that word. But my baby had what is known as OEIS Syndrome. Oomphalocoele, Exstrophy, Imperforate Anus, Spina Bifida. Wow. What is this and do such things really exist? Well, the specialist really only wanted to help us out in 1 way, abortion. He felt this child would never live a normal life. And yet he had never…

Beach Blanket Bingo

Last week we packed our bags and headed for Hilton Head Island. We had never been there before and heard rave reviews from quite a few friends.  Being just 5 hours from our house, how could we not look into it. Such a love affair between father and daughter. These two absolutely adore one another. My fearless Ethan.  He scared me too death because he was always out far from the beach and alone. He had absolutely no fear and was a pro on that little boogie board. Funny story, on our first day there,  Ethan had gotten out a little far and was alone so Larry Denzil went out to join him. Behind Ethan, Larry saw a fin peer up out of the water  in reaching distance and pulled Ethan to him. When he turned toward the shore, it was just a dolphin.  Whew!   I absolutely love this picture.  Ethan just sat in the shallow pool of water and did what looked like synchronized swimming.
Xander and Larry both boogie boardin' fools. Larry tried to hit dad up for a surf board. What was he thinking?  I can tell teen years …

One Last Summer Hurrah

Well, our saturday got off to a rocky start, but in the end, I think we all enjoyed ourselves.  We started the morning off by running a few quick errands.  On our way home, we stopped at the local Krispy Kreme and went to Carrier Park for breakfast.  While at the park, Larry and the kids did a little exploring and I found this neat tree.  Each kid was super excited to climb up and have their picture taken.  Xander was the first.  He had absolutely no fear and climbed up fairly high.  He was much higher than any other child.

This is my favorite picture of little Larry.  He just looks like such a man here.  He is really good at posing for shots too.  Can you tell I take hundreds of pictures of the kids because they instinctively know just how to pose.

We placed Ruby and Ethan up in the tree.  Both of them wanted down as soon as they were up. Ethan said he was too high.

Here is my beautiful Savannah.  She is growing so fast.

Ruby loved the tree once Daddy was in it with her. As a matter of fact,…
