Christmas Eve
We had the best Christmas ever this year, with the birth of our second son, lots of family and friends to share the holidays with,nothing could be more enjoyable to us. We had Christmas Eve at our house this year and then my sister and her husband met us Christmas morning and then we headed to my mom's house Christmas day.

Brandon enjoyed his First Christmas just looking at all the lights on the tree and enjoyed being held by all family memebers..(where are they now) he asks?
Justin of course loves the holiday 6 weeks off from school good times with the neighbors, staying up late, playing video games, basketball and going to the snow. Santa was good to Justin this year as always, but we did limit ourselves a little more this year due to being off of work with the baby..
We had a great time visiting with our family this holiday season, shopping at Victoria Gardens, eating at Cheesecake Factory and the sad farewell of my sister as she heads home. Come back soon!!! Well onto New Year's 2010!!!

From Santa

All I wanted this Christmas is this beautiful healthy baby. We are enjoying him to the fullest. I thought it would be fun to do my own photos since I did one with Justin. I got some good photos and some that are funny from a baby moving around but hey we are going to have a lot of photo shoots just ask Justin....Merry Christmas to ALL....

Splish Splash I Was Taking A Bath

My belly is full of MILK

Drying off

This is me in my little sauna whirlpool bath for the very first time. I love bath time and I enjoy putting my feet by the jets where the water squirts out at them.

One Month Old

Our little Monkey is one month old today. Wow we can't believe how big you have gotten in one month. We took you for your check up and you are doing so well gaining weight and very healthy. You are eating very good and mom is doing her best to keep up with you. You are starting to go for longer sleep periods at night time which makes mom and dad very happy. You dislike having a dirty diaper and even changing the dirty diaper is not your favorite. You make a lot of noises and everyone laughs. You love your bath time and smile the whole time. You love to be bundled up and cuddled. You love to swing, look at the Christmas tree lights and listen to the rain. Happy one month birthday!

A visit from Auntie Marcy

Sweet Baby Brandon
One Happy Auntie

Marcy and Brandon

A little photo shoot for Marcy

My sister flew down for Thanksgiving this year and we were very lucky to have her stay with us a couple of days. Well I should say Brandon was very lucky to have such a sweet Auntie to hold him all day long and attend to his every need except for feeding of course. These photos of Brandon and Marcy are just like the ones I have of her and Justin. So sweet I think Brandon really misses his Auntie and I know his Auntie misses him. Don't worry the both of you we will see each other at Christmas!!

Brandon Is Here

Our Newest Addition
Proud Big Brother

We are pleased to announce the arrival of Brandon Connor Tanimoto. He made his debut on Thursday November 12 at 4:30 in the morning.
My labor was 6 hours from the time my water broke till he arrived. Everything went seamless and the hospital San Antonio in Upland was wonderful. Had my own recovery suite and my experience was remarkable. My labor coaches were great even though the husband fell asleep from being so tired from not having a day off in more thatn two weeks. Rest up dear hubby you will need it. Brandon is doing well and adjusting perfectly. Mom is a little tired but can't complain. Justin is the proud big brother and very protective no one can touch him.....

The Stork Will Be Here Soon!

The Stork is getting ready! Things are quite busy at the Tanimoto house as you can imagine. I am not sure if we waited to long or just find more to get done, but anyways we are busy. I need to learn to take it easy and not let my blood pressure get high and end up in the hospital like I did a couple of days ago. Nothing is more important than a healthy baby right now!!! I have a hard time relaxing when I see things that need to get taken care of and I want to cross every item on my to do list, but am realizing I just can't. We are also taking a poll to see when Brandon will arrive. Just post it under comments and I will let you know who wins!!! Just please do not pick Friday the 13th ha ha!!!!

Happy Halloween 2009

Aydan,Lucas and Justin
Mario and Harry Potter

Here we are on Halloween 2009. It was a full moon out tonight and was a great night for Trick or Treating! There were lots of kids out tonight with great costumes. All the kids said thank you after giving them candy which was a pleasant surprise. The moms stayed at the houses in our cul de sac and passed out candy, while the dad's walked around from house to house Trick or Treating!. I think this is Justin's favorite holiday due to the candy!!! Good thing I work for a dentist!!!
