Ellie's Bangoo Party

          So Ellie's auntie (Gomo Esther and her fiance, Uncle Timmy aka Uncle Candy) were over for the weekend. Ellie was so excited! So as we were in the car, Ellie asked us if we wanted to go to her Bangoo Party. BTW, bangoo means fart in Korean. Don't ask me why, but she's obsessed with talking about farts and poops lately. So Uncle Candy said, "no we can't go to the bangoo party it will be too smelly." And Ellie responded, no it won't be smelly you just have to shake your but after you bangoo. Then she proceeded to shake her booty super fast saying, "see it doesn't smell anymore."
          As you can see Elijah on the right, he used to be such a great eater when it came to solids. He used to open his mouth every time the spoon came to his mouth. One time I was feeding him homemade green beans, and he cringed with each bite, but still would open his mouth each time the spoon came to his mouth, until he finished the whole bowl. It's cause he didn't know any better at the time. But now, he just doesn't open his mouth... ever! It sucks cause now I have to force feed him. He used to whine every time the spoon would enter his mouth, and that's when I'd give him his next bite (while his mouth was open)... Now he just cries/whines with his mouth closed. Man, he's growing up already... Baby Elijah's too smart for his own good.
          I also posted a pic of some designs I'm making for my co-worker's granddaughter. I can't believe it's back to work tomorrow. I start feeling overwhelmed each time I think about work, cause it's just soooo busy now! Just rushing home, getting things done at home, pumping while at work, etc... It's a lot of work!

First Day of School

          Today was the first day of school for my students. The teachers started on Monday of this week, and the students started today. It's weird being back after 8 months of not working. I felt a little anxious and nervous this morning thinking, "Do I even remember how to teach?" haha. Overall it seems like I have a great bunch of kids. But you know how it goes, they're always on their best behavior the first few days of school. This is what I call the honeymoon stage...
          I wore some heels (ones that I used to wear prior to Elijah), and man, my feet were killing me so bad that I could barely get to my car. I used to wear it with no problems and it was pretty comfortable, but my feet must have grown from the pregnancy. I don't think I could do it anymore.
          So I get home and Ellie is dressed like this. When you leave it up to Dave, she's usually in mismatched clothes and notice she only has one sock on. hahaha. Look at her polka dotted pants with her lil' tank top. Oh my, maybe I need to leave out clothes for her from now on...
          I still can't believe I'm back to teaching. It's a weird feeling!Things just got busier. When I get home, things are go go go until I go to bed, which has been late all week. From pumping right when I get home to cooking the adults' meal, then Ellie's meal (she's picky) to Elijah's solids, washing dishes/bottles, it is hectic. I feel like I'm on fast motion all the time. Looking forward to when they're older so I could have some down time!

Wow, someone so little can have so much attitude!

          Sorry I haven't written in awhile. To those following along. Haha, I don't think anyone even checks this blog anyway.          
          Ellie n Dave came back on Thursday afternoon. I missed Ellie so much! When she came back she ran up to me and gave me a huge hug and was rubbing my back at the same time. She kept saying, "awww, I missed you so much". She's so cute. I feel like the cuter she gets the more frustrating she gets. I didn't know someone so tiny can make my blood pressure rise so much. My blood pressure rises as much as a soldier in combat. She's been very uncooperative lately.... Makes me sad. I'm sure it's just a phase.... oh well *sigh*
          I can't believe I go back to work tomorrow! Wow, time flies, I've been off since December so I'm so thankful I've had the last 8 months off. But I'm going to be sooooo sad leaving little Elijah. Starting tomorrow it will be the longest I've been away from him.  :( He's so adorable right now he's playing in his little saucer. He is so much more aware and playful it's adorable. He is constantly laughing and giggling it's the cutest thing. He weights 23 pounds now! He's a little chubster!

So Sad... :(

So sad, Ellie & Dave just left to go to Big Bear for the next few days....  :( It's always bitter sweet cause I'm glad to have some down time to myself, as I only have to watch one kid versus three, but I'ld rather have them here. I'll miss Ellie sooooo much. Please pray they get there safely and return safely. See you soon.

Food... with the Cousins

Today we went to Mollie's Famous Cafe in San Juan Capistrano. They have one of the best breakfast joints and it's served all day. Dave's cousins' kids (Ellie's 2nd cousins) spent the night last night. We've been eating way too much lately. Yesterday we took them to Curry House, one of Dave's favorite restaurants... We've been hanging out with Dave's cousins a lot, and every time we do, we are always eating, a little too much! And along with the eating comes weight gain. Ewww... Once I go back to work, I'll be back to my healthy eating habits. The cousins are currently watching Back to the Future 3. They've never seen the trilogy so we told them they need to see it cause it's a classic. They still haven't seen any of the Star Wars movies, so that will be next. I've made a few more adjustments to my website (, but it's nowhere where I want it to be, so there's still more to be done. .. But anyways, it's getting late, so I'm going to go to sleep.

Dad's Bday

          My dad just celebrated his 66th birthday yesterday. I can't believe he's 66. So weird. It sucks watching your parents get older. In a way, I wish I could just freeze time and be this age forever and have my kids stay this small forever. I try to take mental pictures of my baby and Ellie every day cause I know they will not stay this little forever. It's the little things we experience each day that we look back on and realize they were really the biggest things.
          Anyways, we celebrated by taking my dad out to dinner on Sunday at a Korean BBQ. Yesterday on his actual birthday, we brought over some cake (well pie from Marie Calendars cause that's what Dave likes - he LOVES pies) and sang him happy birthday. Of course we went to get him a birthday card that Ellie picked out from Target. She picked out a pirate cartoon theme. She likes to write cards for people, actually I write while she tells me what to write. It's usually a hodge podge of random stuff.
          Oh ya, this is something new Ellie does. After she goes number 2, she'll say, I want to see the family. Meaning she wants to see her poop. Then she says something like this, "ooh, I see ah-bah (daddy) poo, uh-mah poo (mommy) and baby poo. Ooh that's Ellie poo, and that's Elijah poo." She is soooo silly. (Sorry if this is TMI for some of you... haha)
          It felt great to get 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep last night. The night prior was no fun. On Monday night, I got fragmented sleep for a total of 4 hours. It's always harder when you get 30 minutes here and you're up for 2 hours, sleep for 1 hour, up for 1 hour, sleep for 1.5 hours and up for the rest of the day. I'd rather get consolidated sleep any day. Well, I am about to watch my favorite show online, project runway, so peace out, and thanks for following. (My 2 peeps which includes myself... haha)
