Claire and I recently had a hat party. It actually consisted of me putting hats on her, taking her picture, then her pulling them off. But it was amusing for both of us. I particularly like this picture. She is such a sweet baby and this picture captures her sweetness.

Below is a sneak peak at Claire's Halloween costume. She's the cutest little butterfly I've ever seen. And she seems to like the wings on her back. They helped her crawl up the stairs pretty fast. Now that Cody is 2.5 he has an opinion about everything, including his Halloween costume. So far he's suggested Fom-ka (the Russian swiping bear from Dora's World Adventure), Ming Ming the WonderPet (because Ming Ming's cape is green), and his Clifford costume from last year (which still mostly fits).

Cody has been helping me cook lately. Below is a picture of him helping me make banana bread (by the way, he no longer says "babanana" and I really miss it). He was mostly interested in just burying the bananas.

It's been over 2 months since the last post. Seriously, where does the time go?
Claire stood alone for the first time today.
A few days ago Cody gave me a sticker and told me that it said, "Dear Mama, I love you." It actually said, "Party Time!"

Isn't it the sweetest thing when they "read" or "write" something that says, "I love you." So glad Cody is a man who expresses himself. :)

That is so very sweet! I love the way toddlers say things. Like you, I'm sad whenever Suzy learns the correct way. I guess it's a good thing, but I hate to think she's growing up so fast! I love the hats on Claire. Tea parties will be so much fun with all those hats. She is such a beautiful little girl!

Great to hear from you again! I always love to know what the cutie-pie Chengs are up to. I can't believe how fast your kids are growing, but I guess that's the name of time. It just keeps passing, huh?
