what we've been up to {a videopalooza}.

i really should be sleeping now.

but, you know, i just can't resist showing off the cuteness that is my new son!

i just love him to pieces and could just watch him all day long. which is actually what we've been doing. ;) the hubs and i keep saying that EVERYTHING he does is so cute. the way he yawns, his little babbles, the way he waddles like a penguin...everything.

here are some videos so you can see the cuteness for yourself. honestly, i don't blame you if you don't watch all these videos. i promise i won't be offended. :) these are mostly for choi boy's eemo (my sister) who has proclaimed death by cuteness upon seeing any pics and videos of her nephew!

here is daddy's future basketball star. you can hear choi boy's adorable exclamations of "oh-wah!" as he plays -- he uses it whenever he sees something that interests him or when he's excited or does something that he's proud of. SO cute. and note, this video was taken at about 1:30am. jet lag is not our friend.


my friend, vic, was watching piper while we were gone and with the hubs being sick, she graciously offered to keep piper for two extra days. so, today was the fateful first meeting we've been waiting for! as you can see, things didn't start off on the right foot (plus choi boy had just woken up from a nap), but choi boy quickly warmed up to a very interested big sister:

and as you can tell from the wet hair, i actually managed a shower! huzzah!

choi boy even shared his snack with his big furry sis! check out the way he says "ahhh" for piper to open her mouth and his nods of thank you:


and finally, remember how i said choi boy LOVES to eat? watch him in action! he's obsessed with strawberries and stuffed an entire one in his mouth. we were jokingly cheering him on, and he loved it!

the nickname "chainsaw" is courtesy of our youth group boys. :)

thanks for indulging me! oh, and a confession for those of you that made to the end of this post...remember how worried i was about falling down the stairs with choi boy? well, um, after only two days at home with the little guy, it happened. don't worry, it was only from the second step and everyone's fine, save for a momma with a very sore bum. must invest in some socks with serious traction...

  1. YAAAAAY for videos!!! I watched every single one of them with a smile on my face. Partly because he's so cute, but also because YOU (Grace and Peter) are so stinkin' cute! I looooooove the joy of brand-new parents, and you guys are so radiant.
    Um, what else?
    I love Choi Boy's train shirt - awesome.
    And I love during the Piper meeting video, how she's looking at Peter like "am I doing good? He wants to smell my butt, right?" :)
    So much cuteness in one post!
    Ooh, except for the falling down the stairs part. Oh no! Well, I guess at least you got it out of the way, right?

  4. looks like things are going so well! so glad the meeting with piper went well and that you are all just enjoying being a family together. these moments and days are so precious. and how wonderful that you can talk to him in korean and english. what a difference that likely makes for him. sorry about the stairs - i've done it too. you aren't alone :)

    hope jet lag ends soon. and thanks for the videos!

  7. I love the videos of him! He is so cute. I am so happy everything went well on your trip home (except for Peter's bug). I'll be praying that your bonding time goes well. can't wait to meet him!!

  8. omg he is soooooooooo CUTE!!! He's even cuter in videos (so, I guess real life?) than his pictures!!!

    and Piper is so beautiful. Black lab is definitely in my top 5 of favorite breeds... she is not only gorgeous but so gentle and good too. Rob Sr. noticed in the video how Piper is showing Carson her back, which is a good sign of submission (letting Carson sniff her butt). Methinks they are going to be the best of friends!!! Are you going to let her sleep on his bed when he graduates to a big boy bed?? We are probably going to let Remy sleep on RJ's bed :)

    Keep the videos coming!!! We watched them all and wanted MORE MORE MORE!! heehee :)

  11. Ahhhh...I love him!! He's so darn cute and what a sweetheart.
    Few comments:
    1)I'm impressed by your 'spa' music in the first video, we were watching Entourage at 2am when G came home.
    2)He's so smart by totally understanding what Peter is saying to him. What a sweet boy to share with Piper.
    3)I sucked those same middle fingers that he did, but on my left hand. The bumps that were left helped me know which was my right and left hands :)
    4)Love the chainsaw!! We chant 'eat, eat, eat' with our arms in the air.

    Looks like lots o' fun and love happening at the Choi house right now!!

  12. Hannah and I loved the videos. She did not understand why he could not eat the snacks he was giving the dog, it seemed like a good idea to her.

  15. Oh! I'm jealous, yet SO happy for you that you are doing MUCH better than I was at this point! And with a husband that is under the weather . . . you are a trooper :) The jetlag is brutal coming home isn't it? We found that it was about 12 days before it went away. Cute videos!

  23. You make this look so easy!!!

    I love all the videos, especially the ones with Piper. Ben was also very excited to see a "dog dog dog (insert wild gesturing)".

    I hope Peter feels 100% better asap.

  26. Thanks for the videos! Your boy is so sweet and Piper is a champ too! You guys sound like you've been parents forever already. Love to see you all together at last.

  27. Okay...do you love posting pix of Choi Boy, or what??? He's home!

    I showed these videos to Evan and he looo-ved them! After we cleared up that the videos were not of "you" (what he says when he sees pictures of himself)...he kept asking, "More!" Even he knows Choi boy is adorable!

    And Piper's "look" kills me...she is too cute too!

  30. So love seeing the pictures of Carson! He is such a beautiful little boy! Alex played with the exact same basketball / sports unit when he came home too! Such a great toy. And looks like Carson and Piper are going to be best of friends - especially around the highchair!!
    Hope the jet lag goes away quickly...

  31. I've been saving these...and I'm so glad I did! They were well worth the wait. Spencer and I LOVE (LOVE!) the sharing snacks one. C, you are well on your way to earning yourself a very loyal best friend!! Now really, how do you not gobble him up?!

  32. I've waited until I had a moment to really enjoy these videos and they did not disappoint! I love seeing video of CB! What a cutie he is and I loved seeing him with Piper. BFFs very soon, I'm sure. I also love the "oh-wah!" So darn adorable!!

  33. Okay, you have two sweethearts there!! Piper and Choi Boy are ADORABLE together. I had to giggle at Piper turning her bottom towards CB - that's something our dogs would do. And CB giving that little nod - so cute! Thanks for posting videos. It's always fun seeing everyone in action.
