Its true what they say!

It really is. I always heard parents telling Thao and I that kids get better with every stage. At 6 months old, we thought it couldn't get any better. Then the same when he was 1, when he started walking, talking, potty trained, etc.

Kami has been pretty vocal lately, and he know what Daddy's camera is all about. So today, Kami came up to me and asked "Daddy take a picture...?", and without hesitation, I grabbed my camera and wanted to take a picture. But I thought about it and figured since he's so vocal and understands everything we say now, I'd have a simple setup. I grabbed my flashes, stands, umbrella, and setup a simple lighting scenario in his room.

He was so awesome! he stood there, took direction, and was the greatest 2 1/2 year old model anyone could ask for.

Big News!

Thao and I just recently found out that we're expecting our second baby. We couldn't be more excited!

Above all, we want the baby to be (obviously) healthy, but I can't help but wish for a little girl. Everyone I know that is having a baby these days is having a boy. EVERYONE! My parents have always wanted a little girl. So much in fact, that they used to used to put our hairs (my brothers and I) in pig tails when we were kids and take pictures of us (No, I won't post any!).

We have a girl name picked out already, but we have no idea what we'll do for a name if its a boy. It took us 8 months and 3 weeks until we came up with Kami's name, so it would be a long and hard journey for a name!

So here's hoping for a very healthy baby girl.


And so he grows.

Today, we moved Kami from his crib to a big boy bed. He now resides in a nice (and big) Queen size bed in his room, complete w/ his whole zoo of stuffed animals. He was so excited about it, he kept asking us to go home so he could go night night on his new bed... at 7 PM! (he usually goes to bed around 9ish).

Even while I was putting things together for him, moving things in and out of the room, and cleaning things up in his room, he came and climbed on the bed and watched Thao and I work. So being the dad that I am, I grabbed my camera... which he of course loves.

My little boy is growing up, and as much as I love it, I also miss him being a little baby!
