Thank you and please support the Lulu & Leo Fund [08 Nov 2012|10:42am]
[ mood | grateful ]

We want to thank you for your extraordinary outpouring of love and kindness. Lulu and Leo were 2 of our 3 best friends, and we miss them so much. Our daughter Nessie is very strong, and with your support we will be strong for her.

Earlier this week, we gathered family and friends to celebrate the beautiful lives of Lulu and Leo. It is important to us that they are remembered as the sweet, creative, and fun-loving children that they were.

We are honoring our children by creating the Lulu & Leo Fund. The Fund will support participatory art and science education for young children in schools, museums, and other community institutions. Lulu’s art classes provided some of her most joyful and enriching moments. We’d like to help other children obtain access to similarly great experiences.

More information can be found at lululeofund.org.

As we go forward, we are focused on our 3-year-old daughter, Nessie. It is of the utmost importance to us that she is afforded the opportunity to grow up privately, like any other kid. We ask for your support in ensuring that we achieve this goal for our daughter.

Again, we thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers.

Marina and Kevin Krim

Leo speaks in the most adorable way possible.  Firstly, he speaks super clearly, so you can understand every word is he is saying.  And he does things like, "(I) want a fresh bagel" and "Dito (what he calls himself) wants cold milk" and most adorable of all, "No thank you" - he never uses "No" alone, it's always paired with "thank you".

Friendless Leo [12 Oct 2012|04:40pm]
[ mood | amused ]

A sad truth about the third child in the family - Leo has not a single friend his age.  He is always surrounded by kids and always ends up tagging along with much older children.  A few days ago, he was pleasantly surprised when he met a fellow 2-year old (sister of a new kid in Lulu's class) at a class parents coffee I attended.  As soon as Hannah arrived, he walked up to her, shared his trains and they were instant buddies.  They completely entertained themselves with many different games of their own creation.  It was super cute.

And The World's Easiest Child Goes To......... [12 Oct 2012|03:06pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Leo "Lito" Krim!!!!! Yes, the 2 year old boy. One of the best parts of my day is after I drop both girls off at school and have 3 precious hours with little Lito all to myself. Ok, I'm near getting cheesy I adore this boy so much!!! He's obsessed with collecting acorns he finds 'on the floor', he loves riding 'the school bus' and he happily plays by himself for long periods of time. Here he has set up his kitchen in the living room and is "making bacon" (not sure where he learned the word 'bacon').

Pinkalicious [30 Sep 2012|09:56pm]
[ mood | amused ]

Here's Leo and his Pinkalicious-inspired cupcakes (one of his favorite books).  It's 10:04pm and all 3 kids are still wide awake and wild in bed....think I put too much sugar in those things?  Lito finally says he's 2...for the longest time, he liked to say he was 4.  Such an adorable boy he is!!!

Update -- 10:27pm -- all 3, still wild.
Update II -- 10:49pm -- all 3, still awake.  Nessie crying hysterically.

2nd Birthday [30 Sep 2012|09:48pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

We celebrated Leo's 2nd birthday today and a great birthday it was.  He's been receiving great presents all week, then woke up this morning to many more -- train tracks, this Brio tunnel and subway.  The 3 kids have been fighting over the toys all evening...in fact, Nessie took the tunnel to bed with her which Kevin later removed. We spent the day in the Hudson Valley, picnicking and picking apples at Minard Farms.  Then, picking pumpkins straight from the vine at a nearby patch.

Window Shopping [19 Sep 2012|10:05am]
[ mood | amused ]

While we were walking home from school this morning, Leo was window shopping and saw some toy cars/trucks/fire engines/etc in the window -- he said, "Mama, pay it, pay it".  I told him that maybe he could get that stuff as a present for his birthday.  We continue walking, and he spots a toy helicopter in the window.   This time he says, "Mama, present, present".  I said, "ok Lito, good idea".  Later, I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, and he said, "Fire Engine, Helicopter". 

Lito, I must say, is a very clever little boy.  He is super talkative and just has a million thoughts running through his brain and can express himself amazingly well for an almost-2 year old.  I'm thinking he could be a Mini-Kevin.

I am very proud that the 3 kids absolutely love to play together and never seem to get bored at home. They are constantly thinking up fun things to do in the house.

[ mood | sick ]

Here's Nessie on her first day of school -- she'll be attending Escuelita 5 mornings a week, from 9-12. All this activity and she doesn't nap...you can only imagine how hyper and exhausted she is by 6pm. Fun times with the Nessie!!
