Napkin sketch


It's been 4 months since I've written on the blog. I've had so many moments with Faith and Erin these past few months when I wanted to grab the videocamera to capture a colorful chat that they were having or write down how each of them responded so wittingly to my questions. I will have to update you more on these thoughts later. But for now, I wanted to share a sketch of Faith given to us by a stranger while we were having lunch one Sunday. As we were eating, we did notice that this older gentleman was glancing over at us quite curiously. When we were done eating, he came over with a napkin in his hand. He told us that he made a quick sketch of Faith because he found her so charming. He complimented both Faith and Erin and went back to his table. Quite a random encounter. Have a look at the sketch.

Mandalay Beach






Brrrrr....it was a chilly 68 degrees (well, for us Californians, 68 degrees is cold) at Mandalay Beach in Oxnard while it was 100 degrees at home. The girls were in their sweaters most of the time we were there until the sun finally came out and we got to take some pictures in their swimsuits.

Potty training

Yay!!! It's finally going somewhere. I'm ecstatic that the girls are running to their potty chairs when it's time to go. We've been potty training for quite some time now with not much progress UNTIL THIS WEEK !!! Yay!!!! I am literally jumping for joy every time they go and so do they. What a milestone we've (almost) reached....not completely...not just yet but we're on our way. Erin loves to shout, "I di-yit, I di-yit!"(I did it) while I am jumping with her to celebrate each success. Faith seems more nonchalant about the whole process. Both girls love their Ariel and Belle underwear. After hearing about a fellow triplet mom who returned an unused box of diapers because her kids were potty trained in 10 days, I was challenged to make some progress with our girls soon. We've been at home all week to potty train and the only time we put diapers on them was at bedtime. Yay!! Will keep you updated on our further progress. All the mothers reading this, any helpful advice would be appreciated !

Manhattan Beach






Getting away from the scorching dry heat was the goal today. Parking was a bit of a struggle but the rest of the day was perfect.

Japanese American Museum

We enjoyed a day of fun at the Japanese American Museum in Little Tokyo. The girls were fitted for their very own haute-couture hats made of colored butcher paper.
