Merry Christmas!

It's that time of the year again!

Aaron is definitely getting better at taking "group" pictures with his bro...

They boys were able to sit still for more than 2 minutes, so kudos to them!!!

But of course, this is what they really wanted do (with matching hats and all, no less):

(The Band of Outsiders for NM+Target hats were a big hit, actually. Too bad they can't be found anywhere anymore!)

Bangs or no bangs?

I love the idea of having bangs but they are quite a hassle to manage (a professional haircut every 2-3 weeks is not an easy thing to achieve with two young children).

Here is how they can start to look if you try to trim them yourself once in a while:

(Well, this is how I look on MOST nights when I'm working at home, with my laptop on our dinner table (instead of the downstairs office/guest bedroom), across from Sung who sometimes has to catch up on work e-mail before going to bed. I was probably very very exhausted by that time of the day but I look so happy in this picture because I was smiling at Sung when he took the picture! :o)

Aaron at 14 months

Of the three men that live in our house, Aaron HS Kim is the real man around the house because he is so easy-going and so easy to please and so very happy-go-lucky overall.

He is always doing a cute/funny/silly/sometimes reckless/ominous thing (in that order) that would totally make us laugh/filled with amusement and delight (or shock, of course); and he never cries, ever.

He just has got to be the baby with the highest tolerance to pain because he just would not cry! (OK, by pain I mean if he stumbles on the sidewalk or bumps into the sofa or drops his toy car on his foot or just things like that!)

Either that or all those theories about birth order and personalities are very true.

Oh, how we love him so!

Birthday bash at home

Speaking of Aaron's birthday... This is what the wall next to the dining table looked like:

I just printed a whole lot of pictures and hung them up onto a piece of string using tiny wooden clothespins.

It was actually a big hit and everyone wanted to take pictures in front of the display. :^)

Happy first birthday, Aaron!

We cannot, cannot, cannot believe that it's been full 12 months since this other guy arrived in the world! @_@

Happy first birthday, Aaron!

We are so happy and glad that you're ours and we love you so so so much! We thank God for you every day!

"Somewhat" 3-D Valentine's Day cards...

One of my most favorite bloggers is of course, Gabrielle Blair of DesignMom, her fabulous blog is my go-to source for a lot of DIYs that I've had to do for Collin.

And one of the bestest ideas I came across on her blog was this insanely cute 3-D Valentine's Day card idea Gabrielle had kindly shared with her readers back when. She keeps a rotating lists of DIY instructions for various occasions throughout the year.

I couldn't make the cards look exactly like what the instructions had said, but Collin's Valentines were nevertheless quite impressed.

(According to Gabrielle, the original idea came from another generous mom blogger Alissa from 24-7-365 (what a cool name for a mommy blog!) :o)

Thank you, Gabrielle and Alissa!!!
