Our last and final post of the year.

The kids have grown so much during the 52 weeks project and during the year of 2016 we, as a family have also grown up.

We’ve had some ups and downs but it’s been a wonderful experience to be part of this project.

I won’t be doing this in 2017 because I know I won’t be able to catch up but I will try and keep my own postings going so that I have something at least once a week.

Happy New Year everyone!!!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

크리스마스 이브날 우리는 아이들을 재우며 “빨리 자야 잠든 사이에 산타 할아버지가 와서 선물을 주신데” 라고 꼬셔서 일찍 재웠다. 솔직히 일찍도 아니였다. 10시 넘어서 잤으니깐.

On Christmas morning. Josh woke up and got the gift he wanted. A robot that turns into 3 different cars. This happy soul wanted to take this robot EVERYWHERE we went that day. Church, McDonalds, and on the ride home he wouldn’t let go of this robot.

This little kitty got a doll for Christmas. A baby girl that you can feed and hold with a sling kind of thing. She didn’t want to hold the baby but she LOVES to feed her. I think we’ll have a good babysitter when our baby#3 is born.

Our Christmas was very normal. Very average. Nothing really special. We all got up at 6:30am and opened presents (more like the kids opened presents). Then we all went to church. After church, we had McDonalds cause Josh wanted a Happy Meal (he said he hadn’t had one in a couple of months and come to think of it it was true). Kaden and I went out during the afternoon, just the two of us to visit Myeong Dong and Hong Dae, which we haven’t been to in  about 5 years. There were so many people that we couldn’t even walk properly, so we headed back to Ok Su Dong to eat dinner at Urban Spoon (my current favorite pasta place). Then we came home to have Christmas cake with the kids but they were sleeping by 7:30pm!!!!! WHOA!!! So we all just had a little bit of cake then went to bed early.

Concentrating on eating her Kinder Surprise. Andrea has been asking for chocolate a lot lately but I haven’t been giving her ANYTHING hahahaha

Loves to stack cups and loves to clean up. I have no idea where he’s getting this from but his organizing skills have increased so much lately.

Week 49 already.

I noticed I had the dates all mixed up but oh well. This will just have to do.

The kids are busy with their daily tasks and playing. Josh, however, seems to really want to go to school.

Andrea is always so interested in boy toys.

She does have dolls and baby stuff to play with but seems to like the big cars and trucks.

However, on this day, we was playing with her Sophia doll the whole day.

There weren’t that many pictures this week that I wanted to use for the 52 weeks project. This was the only one. I usually have a few to choose from but this week I only took one that I wanted to use for this.

Josh was in the bedroom watching a color learning video and Andrea was playing with Kaden’s magazine.

I said “say cheese!!” when I took this picture and Josh looked up but Andrea didn’t. You can totally tell the difference between the two characters. Andrea, when focused, doesn’t really care about her surroundings while with Josh, on the other hand, he’s curious and conscious of everything. Now that Kaden is here too, they both seem to be more focused on what they’re doing. 정말 아빠의 빈자리와 아빠가 옆에 있을때의 다른 모습들. 우리 가족이 이제 다 같이 있어서 그런지 아이들도 더 안정적이고 집중력도 좋아진것 같다.

안드레아는 태어나서 처음으로 목도리를 해본것이다. 엄마가 만들어줬다고 어색하지만 잘 하고있는 아이들.

이번 겨울을 무사히 잘 넘겨주길 바래.

목도리 뜨다가 내 목이 나갈뻔한 이번주.

이제 다음주면 아빠도 오고. 우리 다섯식구가 한국에서 정말 건강하고 행복하게 잘 정착하길 기도해본다.

할머니 할아버지 집에서 매일 내복 바람으로 이렇게 노는 아이들. 이제 점점 둘이 같이 노는 시간이 길어지면서 엄마는 그저 바라보고만 있는 ㅋㅋㅋ 전혀 간섭하거나 싸워도 놔두는 그런 상황. 알아서들 싸우고 챙기고 놀고 하는 지금이 너무 좋다.

한국에 와서 추운날씨에 적응하느라 코가 건조해지고 코피가 나고 살이 트는 일이 발생했지만 그럼에도 불구하고 두놈들이 다 잘 놀고 잘 적응하고있다.

이제 다음달초에 아빠 오면 놀러 가자!!

Going to Korea.

We have safely landed in Korea and have been adjusting to the cold weather.

Both kids are having a good time but seem to think that we’re just here visiting.

Josh keeps saying he wants to go home and Andrea has just been stuck like glue to me.

Hopefully we’ll all get through this winter without any problems.

너무 배고파서 힘들다며 하부지 한테 빨리 맘마를 달라던 너. 하부지가 여기서 일하는 사람도 아니고 ㅋㅋㅋ 정말 너무 웃겼다. 진짜 엄청 배고파 보이기는 했으나… 그렇게 까지 많이 먹을줄은 상상도 못했다 ㅋㅋㅋ 왕새우튀김 두개, 미소 된장국에 잡곡 밥 말아서 한그릇, 마카롱, 와플 한개 그리고 아이스크림 하나. 이걸 혼자 점심으로 다 먹었다 ㅠㅠ

감기에 걸리신 둘째. 매일 매일 이렇게 집에서도 땀을 흘리며 노는 너. 이젠 플레이도우도 갖고 놀줄 알고 많이 컷다. 감기가 너무 심해서 각종 검사들을 한 뒤 항생제도 먹었는데 아직도 코맹맹이 소리에 콧물이 가끔 나온다.

아이들이 크면 클수록 왜 조금더 큰 집으로 이사를 하려고 하는지, 사람들이 왜 이렇게 작은 집에 사는 나를 이상한 눈으로 봤는지, 요즘들어서 알겠더군. 아이들이 작은 공간에서 뛰고 장난감을 펼쳐놓고 놀고 하는데 한계가 있더군. 정말 조금만 어질러놔도 정신이 없고 조금만 애들이 울거나 그러면 더더욱 시끄럽다. 아이들이 이젠 좀 컷다고 노는 방법도 달라지고 자기들끼리 놀아서 좋긴한데.. 영혼이 나갈판이다. 우리집은 10평? 티비 소리도 레벨 5 이상 틀어본적이 없는 그런 작은 공간인데.. 요즘들어서 이 집이 우리가 생활 하기엔 정말 너무나도 작은 집이란걸 요즘에야 느낀다. 떠나는 판에 ㅋㅋㅋ 이제서야 ㅋㅋㅋ

우리는 이제 한국을 간다.

아마 다음주 포스팅은 한국에서 하게 될것 같다. 우리가 한국에서 한달이상 지내본적이 … 애둘다 데리고는 없는것 같다. 벌써부터 죠쉬는 왜 유치원 안가냐규 ㅋㅋㅋ 아 걱정이 태산이다. 가서 잘 적응하고 잘 지낼수있게 기도를 내가 더더욱 많이 해야겠다.
