Happy 3rd Birthday Maia!!!

Happy 3rd Birthday to our sweet, little girl!! Maia you are so smart and feisty and we love every minute of it. From your caring little pats on the back when we are not feeling good to your temper tantrums in the driveway, we love it all!! Just yesterday you reminded me what a caring and thoughtful person you are when a store clerk asked if you wanted a balloon and you immediatly requested one for your brother. And, sure enough as soon as Aiden came home from school, the very first thing you did was give him the green balloon you had picked out for him. Way to go baby girl, way to go!

With lots of love,

Mom and Dad

Aiden picked a dandelion this afternoon on the grass today and I told him to make a wish and this is what he wished.
"I wish for my daddy to come home (from work) and for my cousins Jake and Jenna to love me a lot and give me lots of hugs and kisses."
I almost cried, it was the sweetest thing and totally sincere from his heart.

Latest sayings...

"Mommy, it smell like farti in here, did you farti?"
" I a big girl now, I go to Disneyland for my birthday."
" Oh, thank you Aaee (aiden)."
"Ladies first..." (she holds open the door for Aiden)

"I love you so much"
" Wenis" (combination of weiner and penis)
"I love you sister" and "Maia's so cute"
"I fight all the bad guys"

San Diego Wild Animal Park April 2008

Near the Lion enclosure. The Park happened to put all FIVE Lion cubs out, which was spectacular to see!!
On the train into the "Heart of East Africa"

Now who can actually say they have gotten a chance to pet a real African Gazelle? My kids, thats who, my kids.

Entrance to Wild Animal Park. My kids love this park, we go quite often and love it every time!

The Glue pictures I promised...

Maia got into the art cabinet and emptied out two whole bottles of Elmer's Glue; there is a big crusty patch on the carpet to remind us of Maia's true capablities.
