Trick or Treating!

It's the twins first trick or treating!  We decided to go to a mall where they have free trick or treating for kids.  Since it was freezing cold outside, we had to bundle them up quite a bit.  There were a ton of people there, so we ended up holding them most of the time.

Leo sitting in the front seat while I dressed up Max in the back of the car.  Their gloves are for 2 year olds, but they were the only ones that we could get.  

Leo, up close.

 The twins are ready to go!  Actually, they weren't really sure of the whole situation. they stayed close by me.

Once it got dark outside, the boys kept wanting to walk into the street (non-driving street).  They were obsessed with the road!  

Overall, it was a fun experience.  Dressing them up and seeing them in their costumes was the best part!

Halloween Costumes!

Now that I have two kids to dress up, I love Halloween!!  My mom got Max and Leo their first Halloween costume. I put Max in the ladybug costume and Leo in the pumpkin costume.  They didn't seem to have a problem with it except that they keep pulling their hats off!  At first, we didn't plan on taking them out for trick or treating since they're too little to say "trick or treat" and to eat the candy (or even take the candy).  But I found out that some shopping malls have trick or treating for little kids!  So we will probably take them to that and show off their costumes!  Can't wait to take pictures for that!

Leo looks like a sad pumpkin here!

Baby fashion show!

Twins 1st Birthday - Seattle

Max and Leo had their first birthday celebration in Korea this year, but we still had to celebrate it back at home!  

Here they are playing with their Glo Worm dolls that my mom got them.  They love them so much and always hug them and dance to the music that they play!   Thank God they have their own Glo Worm because they constantly fight over things.  

I made them each a baby carrot cupcake, which they destroyed.  

Leo eating his cupcake (or playing with it, actually).

We like to take them to the park so that they can walk around in the outdoors.  They are such explorers!  Leo was hanging out by himself here on the grass while I was walking Max around.

We got them a toy car from Costco that they just push around and sit on.  Leo is the one who sits on it while Max pushes him around.  Here, Max is doing hard labor while Leo enjoys the ride!!

Sometimes they fight to sit on it, so I have to put both of them on and pull them around.

Max is getting his Glo Worm toy in the morning.  I love his backpack t-shirt!

The twins running around at night with their matching pajamas.

Max is carrying around his new toy.  His hair is getting pretty long (compared to Leo's)!

They love getting into cracks and small places.  Leo managed to squeeze himself through the drying rack and behind a chair.

We decided to pull out the baby swing again so that we can sell it... and shockingly, the babies are obsessed with it!  They like to sit in it when they get tired.  Good thing we didn't sell it!

Leo asleep in the chair.  He still looks the same here as when he was three months old to me!

Exhausted from a long birthday!

Twins 1st Birthday Party

The twins had their first birthday party while we visited family in South Korea this summer.  It was in Hotel Prima, which is a beautiful hotel!  Unfortunately, it was only 1 week since we've been in Korea and the babies weren't yet adjusted to the new environment.  This made the party pretty stressful... yet a once in a lifetime kind of thing!  The whole time, both babies cried terribly since they were so scared and tired and hungry and unsure of everybody there.  Overall, I'm happy they got to experience a korean birthday party (even though they're too young to remember it).  

Here is the ice sculpture the hotel supplied for the party.

Max outside getting his picture taken.

And now he's crying.

I ended up having to hold both of them like this 98% of the time.  If someone paid me to do that all over again, I would absolutely NOT do that again!!  Even my husband couldn't hold one of them without them starting to cry!  

My mother-in-law walking Max around.

And Max crying, again.

Traditional 1st birthday table set up for the party.

The photographer tried to take a decent photo of them alone on the table, but this was the only one he got without them crying.

Me holding both again.  Max is the one without pants and has longer hair.

 Max is frustrated...and thus picks his nose.  No matter how many times we try to tell him no, he still does it!

We ended up having to feed the babies while holding them since we couldn't put them down.
 At Korean first birthday parties, the baby usually picks from a tray of items.  Depending on what they choose from the tray, that is what they will be when they grow up.  Leo chose a book, which means he will study hard  and do a lot of reading!  Max chose a pencil, which means he will be a journalist or writer or just like writing.  
Max is chewing on a hammer, but he really chose the pencil.

The babies are in their traditional Korean outfits, called Hanbok.  My husband's aunt made these for them!!!  Perfect fit!

The flight to Korea took 11 hours.  We were able to get a bassinet/crib for them (and they gave us another free one for the other baby).  The bad part is that they didn't like sleeping in the crib for too long since it was so tiny and up in the air.  

Max eating a popsicle, which they both LOVE.

My mother-in-law got the babies their own Nike sneakers!  They're really flexible too!  

We got some hats and baby sunglasses for them at Baby Gap and StrideRite.  The glasses fit perfectly!
