photo bomb...because i can

yup...because i can and i'm the mama i am officially hijacking this post to shamelessly show pictures of my sweet boys

a glimpse into his future?

too too cute
he learned the "push them up your nose" bit from his mama

i got this!
my turn!
playing glasses with briana
my sweet little
trying to climb the tree...oy
flying with my uncle Jason
trying to be like my cousin Kayle

i just can't get enough of this little boy
trying to look up at Kayle's hot air balloon - this resulted in him falling over
the closest thing we have to a family photo this season...

so there you have it...
the family that i love and adore with every ounce of my being

i could not be happier...and what was truly amazing was spending christmas with angela's family this year i actually felt like a part of the family...with jason and the kids there and angela's aunt referring to me as a "cousin by marriage" when Kayle asked how i was all really fell in to place. it might have take 7.5 years (really has it been that long?!) but feeling like a part of the family for the first time in that 7.5 years was worth the wait...

hope you enjoyed the pictures of the two (well 3 including angela) best things that ever happened to me!


so when the boys were first born their bubbie started this things called "ah-boo"
you say ah and on the boo you tap heads. well if you're caleb sometimes you knock head but you get the picture...
each time the boys see their bubbie they go through this game and for the longest time it was their way of saying "i love you" - it's really quite awesome
now occasionally they will do ah-boo completely spontaneously - caleb will even say "ah.......boooo" - it's really adorable
tonight, after bath while we were picking out pajamas and getting our night-night diapers on, caleb came up to me and totally out of no where did ah-boo! then jared came up and had to do it too...after a few seconds of alternating ah-boos between each boy it turned into one big family BOO! it was the most adorable toddler moment. all three of us had our heads together with the boys giggling and boo-ing
the best part is that bubbie and poppie are coming for brunch on sunday and i'm sure the boys will show off their ability to ah-boo all by themselves!
