Thank You Easter Bunny – Bawk! Bawk!

For Easter this year I decided to build Emma her very own work-bench. I had seen a pretty good design on Makezine and scaled it down to her size. When I came back inside the house from the garage after working on it for a few hours she was clapping, jumping, and running to kiss me. It was evident from her reaction that she realized that I had toiled at its creation and she desperately wanted to show her appreciation. Needless to say, she was very excited to receive it. We have placed it in our office so that she has a place to sit and work while Elena and I are working. Now I just need to stain it for her. That will be the next project.

That’s My Girl!


I know it’s been a while but as they say, “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.”. Elena, Emma and I have been really busy with our business and have had very little time for personal endeavors. As a result, it’s been really difficult for me to get around to posting updates to this site. I hope that by doing so now I can somehow get back into the habit of making regular updates.

Emma is growing up so fast. She talks a lot now. She enjoys watching “Diego”, “Word World” (Which is a great show by the way!), and “Little Einsteins”. She also loves to sing and play in the park. A couple of weeks ago I went to the park with Emma and she really wanted to climb the “big kids” wall. I instructed her on where to place her hands and feet and how she should always have three of her appendages secured before attempting to grab a new foot-hold. She climbed to the top twice and was super excited about being able to accomplish this. I can’t believe how far we have come. It seems like it was just the other day when all she could do was lay on her back and poke at the mobile dangling above her. I believe Elena’s commitment to taking Emma to the “Little Gym” is paying off. Emma is quite the gymnast.
