Good Times Family Photo

Talking about not paying attention to our friend who was trying to take our family photo. Ah...we all looked in different directions. Thanks Christina for carving out time in your busy schedule to take some great photo/memories for us.

Olivia @ 4 weeks

Our Baby Girl has certainly filled out. She takes her time when she eats but she can eat. I know it's only formula but still. Olivia has her moments during the day when she's not sleeping and just to look into her eyes and her be able to follow your movements...is so very cool.

Her hair is still short...but I wonder if it's gonna be wavy.

Little Feet

Olivia @ 3 weeks today. Wow, where has the time gone. We finally got around to doing the foot print or shall I say the foot stamping on her birth certificate from the hospital. She was either always sleeping or it was just too complicated to coordinate three adults for the photo op.

We started feeding Olivia 4 oz. per feeding cause the little girl never seems to be full. I'll have to go on record and say that she oftens falls asleep before finishing which causes her to cry for another feeding...it is quite the chore. On a good meal, it will take about 30 minutes...on a meal where she falls asleep...it could take over a hour. For reals. She lost her cord yesterday...so we can finally give her a proper bath. Yeah! She's sleeping at least 3 hours at a time in the evening which makes it nice.

Landon @ 16 months

I got my new haircut yesterday

 All smiles as Landon is watching Yo Gabba Gabba
My baby boy is 16 months today. His personality is shining through more and more each day. Although his words are not clear but I'm understanding that he knows how to say his name...it's not quite "Landon" but it comes out as "an-and", he also knows how to greet his "Po-Po" but it comes out more like "Po". It's really cute. He also knows how to say banana ("nana"), yes, mama, daaa, mum-mum(food), and woe(dog).

He loves to go for a walk outside, especially with his Po-Po. He also loves to lay on the lawn...it's really quite funny. He got his third haircut yesterday with Christina and he actually sat quite still, it went better than I thought it would. If he wanted a treat like candy, I would have given it to him. He was that good. So proud. He loves to help Po-Po sweep and vacuum the floor, he pretty much puts things back in place (the grown-up stuff) not so much his toys. His toys are just...all over the place. I believe he comprehends a lot more than we give him credit for. He also helps out with the laundry by taking the laundry out of the wash and putting it the dryer or taking clothes out of the dryer and into the hamper.

Don't get me wrong, he does typical toddler things like going into drawers, closing doors, putting the lid down on the toilet seats, plays with lotion bottles, remotes, loves to talk on the phone, tries to open front doors, climbs onto chairs and boxes, loves to push the buttons on a keyboard and rolls the little ball on a mouse with his index finger, loves to turn the tv on and off, the list goes on and on. He recently discovered my iPad...enough said. All we can do is keep a close eye on him so he doesn't hurt himself. He loves to explore, that's for sure. He continues to scribble with pen and paper, is a good eater and his enjoying more and more table food. He even loves some of the Chinese soup Po-Po makes. When he hears music...he dances not only with his arms and hips...but he picks his feet up and stomps. His drool is finally slowing down and he has a mouth full of teeth that are beginning to bust through his gums. It's getting tough to clean his teeth...as I'm afraid he'll bit down. It's killer.

Landon continues to surprise us everyday and brings us so much joy. I love you Landon Boy!

He has been a great big brother to his little baby sister Olivia. He loves to give her kisses...all the time. No apparent jealousy but it is juggling act when the both of them need the required attention at the same time. We're adjusting and making it work.

There's a whole lot of love in the Lau House.

Daddy's Little Girl

As you can see it didn't take me long to decide which photo to use for this frame project I put together last night. I'm inspired to create. What's next on the list...stay tuned.

Landon a penguin

Landon got this cool hat from his Uncles Nicholas & Scott in Australia. I never knew how hard it was to snap a decent photo of a running penguin. This is what I got. Will have to try again soon.

Olivia @ 2 weeks

Tiny little fingers
Look at those cheeks.
Landon's little sister
Do you think it's time to get Landon a little table and chair set?
A sweet moment.

Boys will be Boys

What is the tulle on Norm's head you might ask? It's a tutu that Auntie Joycee had made for Baby Olivia.
Of course Landon wants in on the fun too!

Olivia sleeps most of the day...makes it really hard to take pictures. She's usually up from the wee hours of the morning. All is well in the Lau Household.

Halloween Baby!

Norman, Landon and I welcomed Olivia Addison Lau on Halloween @ 8:45am. 
She weighs 7lbs. 11.3oz and is 21" long.
Olivia ready to go home
First family snapshot

We are all adjusting including Landon. The first time he heard Olivia cry he was wondering where the sound was coming from. He was quick to imitate and laugh. I'm not sure he knows what's going on but he loves to give her kisses and rock her bassinet(not so good, cause it usually wakes her up).

Norman and I are finding ways to get rest in between the their naps. My parents and sister have been super helpful, without them we wouldn't be eating, sleeping or doing much of anything but tend to the to Landon and Olivia. We are very lucky.
