Two lil' Buddies
Here we have our little guys, Kingston & Tae. The other day we had Tae over so his hot mama could get her hair done. It was fun to finally get another snap shot of these little buddies together. We took their picture when they were just weeks old (Tae is a week older than Kings) so they are doing so much of the same things, it makes it pretty fun watching them both together. Tae however is a busy little body already rolling over. Kingston attempts it a bit, but chooses to chill. He is our little chill guy! I don't mind it one bit as I already have my hands full with Londs. Whew, busy times!

Serious Sk8eegirl.....

Our little girlie girl amazes us all the time, as all children do. This is a recent, just over the weekend clip of London on a mini scooter at the skate park. If it were her choice she would have the real skateboard to practice on; but with her so little, Robbie and I agreed that she should start on something more stable with wheels and then she can graduate to a skateboard. I love our little ball of energy! London has so much enthusiasm and zeal for life. Robbie and I want more than anything to have our children experience pretty much everything this life can offer.

Story: As I was at the park walking with the kids; Kingston in his baby Bjorn and Londs in the running stroller, we happened to walk by the skate park and I hear this little voice from the stroller say " I want to do that mom!", " I wish I could ride a skateboard". No Joke! I was taken back by her wish as she is totally a girlie girl to the T. I said " sure honey, one day we'll have to try it". There is not one thing you say that she forgets unless it is eat your veggies & time for bed, she could forget about those suggestions any given day. She remembers things so well and won't let you forget that she remembers them!

Anyhow, this last week Robbie brings home a mini scooter that a friend of the family had given him. He brought it home and then was off to do work, all while London was taking her nap. When she awoke she saw the scooter and in no time asked, "mama, can I try this?", me: Of course honey! A few minutes went by, " mama can I have this?". Knowing that it was indeed for her I smiled, chuckled and said, "sure sweetie, lets wait for dad to get home and we can see what he wants to do with it. ( I wanted Robbie to gift it to her). A few minutes later after taking a few pushes around the kitchen she then says "I want to take this and skate with the boys at the park", I knew that was coming next.

The next couple of days after she continued to remind me of the park and skating.. she wanted to go, the only thing we needed was pads and a helmet for protection. Friday morning came, we ran a few errand and ended up at Target for stuff and she was persistent to get herself some pads and a SKATEBOARD, so she could go skate! We bought the pads and helmet minus the skateboard. We almost bought one for her, as they do sale little boards at Target (just her size), but we want her to be comfortable on wheels moving and grooving first! So after her nap we were off to skate in the hot and that day windy conditions. She was on top of the world!

So for those of you that know London well, you know how princess crazy, dress up queen and all girl she is; I am happy to see that she has a well rounded personality, and is willing and wanting to try different things. You go girl!

With all that said, enjoy our day with London practicing to get her skateboard!
