All Hollow's Eve 2008

She was right in the middle of trick-or-treating and she wanted to lay down and look at the stars. Everyone around (like 10 families) was cracking up. That kid is the best.

Was I Born Yesterday?

Kesiah and I were playing when she covers her face with a card size piece of paper indicating that she is now playing the hiding game...

Dad: Where's Kesiah?
Kesiah: I'm in Chicago.
(realizing she gave away her location she dropped the card)
Kesiah: I was born in Chicago.
Dad: Oh yeah?
Kesiah: I was born in Chicago the other day!
Dad: Really?
Kesiah: I'm going now.
Kesiah: I'm going to jump over the moon.

Welcome to America (Reminiscing Part 2)

Sometimes Evin and I are funny too. I will spare you from the details leading up to the photo and just let you absorb it. This is what we call our immigrant photo.

This one's Blog-able

The 3 of us were driving home after dinner with my other equally wonderful in-laws when...

Kesiah: (adamantly) I want to look in the kitchen bowl!
Mom: Are we in the kitchen right now?
Kesiah: No, we're in the CAR!
(sits, ponders what she just said.)
Kesiah: There are no cabinets here. Just doors.
Dad (quietly to Mom): That's blog-able

Obsolete Children

I overheard this conversation a few days ago. Evin believes it happened differently but it's my blog and my memory, so I am posting it this way:

Kesiah walks in to the room with a little booklet.
Kesiah: Look mommy.
Mom: So, do you like that catalog?
Kesiah (with great excitement): It's a boring book! What is it?
Mom: It's a book of things to buy.
Kesiah: Oh... for boring kids?
Mom: For grown-ups.
Kesiah: Grown-ups are boring kids.

Photoshoot (Reminiscing Part 1)

When Kesiah was 1.5, she asked me to follow her around our Chicago apartment and take photos of her doing various things and standing next to random objects.

She set up this shot, looked through the viewfinder, and asked me to "click it". Enough said.

For the whole shoot, visit\photos\galangfamily and it is somewhere in there. Create a free account and I will friend you so that you can see the whole collection of cuteness.

Kesiah on Showers

Since starting this blog (I just realized it has been only ONE DAY) I have been plagued with questions every time Kesiah does anything cute or funny... "Is this blog worthy?" or "Should I write this down so I don't forget it?" or "Should I tweak this to make it more funny?"

Notice I never ask myself, "Will this embarrass her when she gets older???" ;)

The real question is, "Does this ruin moments with Kesiah?" Nope, but it is a nagging thought. Anyway, being new to blogging and worried about its blog-ability, I test drove this little tidbit on some of you and it only had a lukewarm reception. Oh well, here it is. This is pure Kesiah, pure amazement, pure joy, and never tweaked:

I just came out of the shower
Kesiah: Did you take a bath?
Dad: I took a shower, sweetheart.
Kesiah: I don't like showers.
Dad: Really? Do you know the difference between a shower and a bath?
Mom(in the background): About 20 gallons.
Kesiah: Yes and I don't like showers.
Dad: Well, maybe you'll like showers when you're older.
Kesiah: When I'm older and I'm a mommy and I carry a baby and I pee pee... I will def-fin-nit-ly take a shower.

Yes, she said definitely. She said it very slowly but she definitely said it.

Shaving with Kesiah

Being a mix of various Asianalities, I rarely have to shave but I do on occasion (if only to get those weird wiry hairs off my neck). Seeing that I do not shave often, Kesiah is very curious at this oddity. After explaining that I have to shave those little black dots off my face, she wanted to shave as well. Nothing funny was said but her cuteness is totally blog-able!

The pics were taken 10/14/2008.

Kesiah on Football

About a week before the "Ask me if I'm a truck" incident, my wonderful in-laws were giving Evin and me a break and had Kesiah over for dinner. Grandpa being a Georgia Tech fan had the game on in the background. Of course hilarity ensued and here it is:

Grandpa: Kesiah, do you like football?
Kesiah: Yes and Noah likes football too.
Grandpa: Who do you think is going to win?
Kesiah: Obama.

Am I a Truck Saga Continues

11/11/2008 Kesiah at 2.5 yo

So during dinner I asked Kesiah to ask me if I was a truck (as I have annoyed many of my friends with this type of never ending questioning). Here's her response:

Dad: Kesiah, ask me if I'm a truck.
Kesiah: Are you a truck?
Dad: Nope
Kesiah: Are you sure?

She did not skip a beat, bat an eye, or even wait for my answer. She just returned to eating her dinner.
