November 2015: Ngai

1FAmilyNovember 2015: Daniel Becker and Ivy Ngai are 26, Chloe is 2 and Lara is 1.

2Awake Ivy:  Lara has been waking up a lot at night and the only one who seems to be able to get her back to sleep is Daniel.  He doesn’t complain about it, I think he likes the extra cuddles he gets and he doesn't seem all that tired in the morning.

2Space With the two girls and all the toys we now have this house seems to be getting a little small for us.  I’m just not sure where we want to live.  I work downtown and Daniel works in Chantilly but I think he’s not as happy as he used to be before they combined the upper and lower schools.

3shopping I’ve started thinking about wedding stuff so one day after work I went into a bridal shop.  I was very disappointed, the staff were less than helpful and I saw nothing that I liked.

4LunchDaniel's parents came over on the weekend to take care of the girls while we went out on a date.  We had lunch with them before we went out.

4Date We didn’t go anywhere special just a diner downtown that we used to go to a lot.

4Date1 We finally had a chance to talk about the wedding and things going on with Daniel at work.  We haven’t set a date for the wedding but we think this summer would be nice time of year.

 4Date2 Daniel mentioned a conversation he had with Claire, she had heard that the school in the downtown area was expanding ad they might want more teachers.  It might be a bit more challenging as the type of kids going there don’t all have money and support at home.  I think Daniel likes the idea of the challenge.  If Daniel worked downtown maybe we might want to move there too.

snapshot_fca8ac8b_224e2e81I had Bailey over to sort out wedding plans, she has a friend who is  a designer and had recently done the wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses for a wedding.

5I asked Bailey about living downtown, I’m not even sure if it’s what we want.  Bailey told me all about the area where she an Juan have an apartment and that there are some nice houses down the street.  It’s also close to the school and not as busy as the main downtown core.

Their house looks cute from the photos, but I can understand outgrowing a house, little kids take up a ton of space with toys! I like the idea of Daniel working downtown at the schools there, and getting a new place to live. Summer wedding would be sweet for this family too.

A wedding soon how fun. I can understand the need to either move or expand once kids are around.
