20 Pictures from 2008

We just got back from our trip to New York, but before we update you on that, we want to wish you all a Happy New Year! I'm going to be 3, Aki's going to be 1, and mommy and daddy will still be old.

The year began with me, the only child, turning 2.

Blowing out candles
I blew out the candles on my Nemo cake.

New big boy bed
I got a new bed. Sadly that laptop did not stay in my room.

Playing in the snow
It was cold and snowy in the beginning of the year.

Then a few months in, something happened.

Phoebe on the operating table
Aki came along. I wasn't the only child anymore.

Not too much changed for me at first.

Checking out storytime
It did get warmer eventually.

Window seat please
Then we went to San Francisco for a big fat Chinese wedding.

The aunties and babies at Harvard Square
Aunties came to visit.

I can soothe myself now. Sometimes.
Aki got bigger.

Running away from the cold water
And Daddy went to his college reunion. I think I had more fun than he did.

By the time the weather really got nice, we took off for Hawaii.

Aki in the water at Sandys
Aki touched the ocean at Sandy's.

Ah Gu and Mommy enjoying the shave ice
Ah Gu, Ah Gong, and Ah Mah came to visit us there. Here we are having shave ice at Waiola's.

I can sit up now
Aki learned to sit up about when we got back.

It got cold again a little while later.

Synchronized somersaults
We went off to Storyland for Daddy's birthday. Ronak and his grown-ups came along too.

Aki found something to drink
Aki learned how to crawl backwards.

Owen is giving Aki a back rub
We had Halloween.

Is someone touching my head?
Ah Gu came to visit us in Boston.

Aki with MOMS Club Santa
Aki met Santa. I stayed home.

Aki Wrinkly Smile
Aki learned to be super cute.

Getting ready to sled
It started snowing again.

Highlight of Owen's day: the eggs
And we went to New York City and hatched out of eggs.

We had a great 2008! Happy New Year! See you in 2009!

Hatched out of eggs?! Wow are you guys related to Mork from Orgk? I wished I could go inside that giant egg! Awesome 20 picture countdown of '08.
Happy New Year, and here's to a healthy and prosperous 2009! Just think this could (should!) be the last year that you'll be shoveling snow! (Unless something horrible goes wrong and Hawaii has a white Christmas, in which case, that would be an the least of our problems). Can't wait to see the New york pics - we're jealous we looove The Big Apple!
