June 27 – Aug 3, 2017

Boy is this a big one! Yen has been choosing to get some sleep at night instead of staying up to process photos. Here we go! Isn’t she cute in this? One woman said, “You look like Dorothy!” Linus is…

Mystery Solved

Linus came downstairs this morning to find the kitchen rug (still) missing. Linus: What happened to the rug? Ba Noi: I don’t know. Linus: Mina spilled some couscous. Mama said, “Oh god.” Then Cha-Cha put it outside to clean it.

Adventurers

Adventurers

Whenever we take the car seats out of the car (usually to switch between cars), Linus and Mina like to lie in them so they look like little astronauts.

Check Up

Check Up

Linus had his three-year physical today. He’s in tip-top shape! 40th percentile for height, 30th for weight. Our skinny little guy has been consistent in his range. Yen took a few photos for me that I thought I’d share. First…

Cat and Cow

Cat and Cow

The kids haven’t decided yet what they’ll be for Halloween this year, but I thought you’d like to see them playing dress-up with some options.

Toddler Tossing

This is probably illegal in some states, but it’s how we passed the time Saturday afternoon when we were staying in a hotel and it was raining. Don’t worry, Grandpa Mike – Yen was very careful. Make sure you stay…

Charm School

Yesterday at lunch Yen gave up and let Mina eat her pho by herself. She was completely covered by the end and left the restaurant without a shirt. You can see how hard this was for Yen – at one…

From the Phone Collection

From the Phone Collection

Most of the posts on here come from Yen’s fancy camera. He downloads them all and sends them to me in bundles. But this is 2017, and of course we take photos on our phones too! I decided to grab…

June 8 – June 26, 2017

I must be getting old because I don’t remember summers being this hot when I first moved to New England. And yet here we are with regular days in the 90s. At least the kids know how to keep cool….

May 28 – June 7, 2017

It’s summer! That means salad is on the menu. Linus tosses a mean salad. Have you ever seen anyone so happy sitting on a potty? Linus just loves corn. Mina will eat a bit, but Linus sat down one night…

The Trans Go Out on the Town

The Trans Go Out on the Town

You’re about to see how nicely we all clean up! We were invited to a wedding, and the kids were actually included too, which was so sweet. Linus kept talking about “the party,” and once we were there, he repeated,…

April 18 – May 27, 2017

Another long stretch between posts. Busy family! And all with theatrical faces, as you’ll see. First up is Linus, with his familiary Monkey Face. And then Mina. I’m not sure what she was doing here, but it went on for…

Mina’s Bee

I think riding this little bee is Mina’s favorite thing in the whole world – well, maybe second behind Yen. She rides it all over the house, pivoting and stopping just short of a total collision. I’m worried what will…

Here’s a beautiful sight: Ba Noi and the kids having a quiet moment. They love her so much!

Daily Adventures

Daily Adventures

Yen sends me text throughout the day that contain photos of the kids’ adventures while I’m at work. Thought I’d share a few today. First up is Mina at the library. They tend to go every Monday morning. During the…
