Baby Gibby, Baby Gibby

Several weeks ago, one of my coworkers introduced us to the YouTube sensation Baby Monkey (Going Backwards on a Pig). It’s a video that’s been watched over 6 1/2 million times featuring, well, a baby monkey going backwards on a pig. What really burns this video into your mind though is the catchy, high-pitched tune that accompanies the ridiculous footage. If you haven’t seen the video, you can check it out below.

So why am I talking about a video of a monkey riding a pig? Well, my incredibly talented coworkers surprised us with this very clever spoof, in honor of our soon-to-be new arrival:

Meet Baby Gibby in 3D!

For Natalie’s birthday this year, she really wanted to get a 3D ultrasound of our upcoming addition. He was kind of a stinker and kept his hands in front of his face most of the time, but we were able to catch a few glimpses here and there. It was a lot of fun getting a peek at what he’s going to look like. We’ve included a clip from the ultrasound as well as a few of the still shots for your enjoyment.

… And they lived happily ever after!

On August 8, 2008, an angel gave our family the greatest gift we could ever imagine–our beautiful baby girl, Tateym. To take a trip back in time and remember that event you can check out this post. At that moment in time, life seemed perfect. Little did we know of the roller coaster that lie ahead. Continue reading “… And they lived happily ever after!”

Remembering 6 Years Ago

April 29, 2003 was one of the best days of our lives.  For those that weren’t there, or just can’t remember it, here’s a little re-cap…

(Just so you’re aware, this is a pretty long video and a pretty large download.  Consider yourself warned.)

Easter was a lot of fun this year.  This was Tateym’s first Easter ever, and our first Easter where the Easter Bunny had a legitimate reason to visit our house. 🙂  Saturday was the annual family Easter egg hunt.  It amazes me how quickly all our little nephews and nieces are growing up–we had nearly as many hiders as hunters this year.  The weather was much cooler than we had hoped it might be but that didn’t slow down any of the kids in the hunt (“get candy, get candy, get candy”).  We had a great time visiting with family and friends, and eating way too much good food.

A few pictures from the Easter egg hunt and Easter morning:

Is that the Easter Bunny?
