Leo, Tingting, Thomas, Amanda and I went to the Gathering Place in Tulsa yesterday. It is such a cool, beautiful and fun place. Paid for in all private funding, it is the best public park I have ever been in! The park is free to get into and took about 2 years to develop. There are at least two restaurants, tons of children playgrounds, splash pads, small Lakers for paddle boating, gardens,… Read More

We made it safe and sound to the USA last night, and Leo got to meet his grandparents, aunt Marianne, and of course his big brother Thomas for the first time. 19 years apart, and everyone says they look-alike. Overall, Leo did such a great job on the flights. Our first flight was nearly 13 hours long, and he slept at least 7 of them. I watched a couple of movies, but… Read More

We finally got our photos back from a studio we took Leo to. They turned out really nice.

We took Leo to Lillyput again, and he really enjoyed it so much more now that he is crawling and scooting about. He was mesmerized by the other kids jumping and playing. He also got to enjoy a large dish of mixed fruits… we discovered he hates grapefruit so much it almost made him cry!!! First two bites and he sorta coughed and look unhappy, third bite and the tears started to… Read More

And Leonard looked forth upon the masses and said, “You are blessed, now bring me some food.”

We took Leo out last night and again today, and discovered along the way, that he loves slides!! Haha we have to hold him the whole way down, and up of course, but he loves it so much!

Tingting took Leo to go swim for the first time in about two weeks. It was almost as if he had never been there before. He seemed to hate the experience. The first couple times he went, he cried in the beginning, but always settled in quickly and had a good time. This time however, he just cried a lot. Has he forgotten that he’s been there before? Or has he changed… Read More

We celebrated her big 40 yesterday! It was great. I custom designed a nine piece heart shaped puzzle, and laser cut poems on each piece. Then I hid the pieces around the house and each one had a clue to help find the next one. The first piece was presented to her by Leo. The second one was attached to some chocolates, the 4th one had an iPhone case on it with… Read More

Of course he is not doing push ups at 8 months old, but the shots are great, he did lift up on his own. We took him to a photo shoot and, though long it was, we got some really amazing pictures. These were just snapped on her phone, so not the final pic. Tingting is so awesome for organizing these kinds of things. The bottom two photos are not from the… Read More

I swear Leo is checking out the menu, trying to decide what to order…. lol
