Happy birthday Zui!

Zui caught up to me again, at a whopping 32 years :)  The kids were so excited to get him donuts in the morning, I was surprised to see one maple bar with "love" written on it--perfect!

 Zui was so excited to get some BYU gear for his birthday.  Thank you Rebecca for mailing them to me from Utah!!  He seriously wears them ALL the time :)

A few days before we went out to eat to celebrate--with the baby.  It was so funny, we were hardly ever sitting down together.  Ezekiel woke up as soon as the food got to our table.  The rest of the time one of us would bounce the baby outside while the other ate.  too funny.

Happy Birthday Zui!  Sure do love you!!

Children's Discovery Center

A few days ago we went to the Children's Discovery Center to celebrate Zeya's big accomplishment of giving up thumb-sucking.  The kids had a blast.  Tons of exhibits full of dress-ups and make-believe.

We wore our Jones family reunion shirts to keep track of all of us :)
Really awesome water table

Jasmine loved this gigantic stomach

Anjuli was in heaven when she saw the reading room :)

Chinese room

Dr. Kim

Plantation worker picking pineapples :)

The Korean room

Zion loved this wheelchair exhibit.  The kids got to wheel around a mini room to see how it felt.

The kids are begging to come back...maybe for their birthdays :)  It was fun for all of us!

Thumb-sucking no more!

Well I think we are FINALLY pau with Zeya's thumb-sucking, it's been 3 weeks now, hooray!  Zeya has been sucking his thumb since birth so it was no easy task.  We used a bitter nail polish called Mavala Stop. Thankfully it did the trick. 

First nap he fell asleep without his thumb
  Showing off his thumbs :)
I'm so proud of this kiddo. It was so hard for him. He had to learn a new way to console himself and put himself to sleep. Anytime he was upset he would just scream and scream, not knowing how to stop. After the first few days it got better and I think it's officially over, YAY!

Anjuli's Pink Cotton Candies

 Anjuli's first soccer season finished in August.  She had a great time with her team: the Pink Cotton Candies!  She loved the camaraderie, the team cheer, and "dancing" on the field :)

Mommy's helper

Zion has become quite the helper since the baby came.  Several times I've found a bottle of milk made with who knows how much formula inside. Yesterday Ziggy was crying on the couch and before I know it Zion picked him up and is bouncing him in his arms, yikes! But this one takes the cake. I was nursing the baby and look over my shoulder to see  my big boy changing a diaper like he's been doing it all his life. Gotta love that kid.

Big girl bed

Jazzy is growing up! She switched to a big girl bed a few months ago. I was nervous about the transition but she took to it immediately. Anjuli moved in with her so now we have a girls room and a boys room.
