Bye Bye Betty’s Bunch and Hello Henry to Kid Zone

The end of July marked another big milestone for Henry, as his time being a part of Betty’s Bunch came to an end. Vish and I both feel like we have basically hit the jackpot with our childcare experience. Having both kids start off at Betty’s provided them both with the best start they needed…

Eight is Great!

July 19th 2008 – one of the happiest days of my life, if not the happiest! Vish has been my rock throughout the last 8 years and this year more than ever I am grateful to have him. He can always maintain rational decision making despite my over reactions to many situations and he can…

The Craziness of Spring/Summer 2016

To say that our lives have been a little bit hectic over the last four months is an understatement. With each of the major events (and minor), I have been wanting to update our blog, but exhaustion and stress have gotten in the way (at least that is my excuse). Before Henry came along, it…

Carter and Henry both entered this world with full heads of amazing hair. Carter’s hair started to thin out around 3-4 months, however, Henry’s has never stopped growing. Vish and I have been joking that his hair has been incubating under his helmet, growing longer and longer until eventually poking out the sides of his…

Halloween 2014

Halloween this year was very fun for our family. As Carter gets older, he gets more and more excited about holidays — Halloween was no exception. Carter’s favorite characters lately have been from Jake and the Pirates, and we were able to find him a Jake costume for Halloween. He was very excited to wear…

Back to Work

The last 16 weeks have flown by. I cannot believe that my time home with Henry is coming to an end that it is time for me to go back to work already. I have really enjoyed all of the time that I was able to spend with Henry, despite the early struggles getting used…

Over Memorial Day weekend, we headed back to Iowa City for our last trip before baby #2 arrives. The entire Yem family was getting together to celebrate Grandma Yem’s retirement after 35+ years. On Wednesday night, Bophar and Jeff arrived in Minneapolis from Florida, and spent some time in the city before we headed back…

Krons Invade Minneapolis

A few weeks ago, my parents and two brothers came to Minneapolis for a visit. We had been looking forward to the weekend for quite a while. Carter always looks forward to seeing Grandma & Grandpa Kron, Uncle Nick and Uncle Nathan. My parents arrived on Wednesday evening to watch Carter for us on Thursday…
