2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the Maldonado Family!!!

ImageWe hope that you and your families are all doing well and having a great holiday season. Here is what we have been up to the past year!


  • Turned 6 this year
  • Is currently in kindergarten and is learning so much. She can read more than 100 words and is constantly spelling things.
  • Has kept the tooth fairy very busy over the last few months and is missing all four of her front teeth
  • Is STILL obsessed with all things Justin Bieber
  • Donated 12 inches of her beautiful hair to Locks of Love
  • Has a tad bit of an attitude that makes me terrified for when she is a teenager
  • Loves to work with Ceci and come up with new ways to make me crazy everyday


  • Will be turning four on Sunday
  • Loves Barney
  • Watches the Justin Bieber movie all day everyday (if I let her)
  • Loves to pretend to be a dog trainer
  • Is really really really good at making Orlando cry and scream
  • Goes to imaginary school. Everyday when I ask Skyla how her day at school was and she is finished telling me Ceci says, “Today at my school we…..” She gets pretty creative
  • Tells Carlos, “Daddy I didn’t have any bad dreams,” as a way to convince him to let her watch Walking Dead with him



  • Is celebrating his 2nd birthday today! Happy Birthday Handsome!!!
  • Is most certainly a Daddy’s boy (he cries like the world is ending every time Daddy leaves)
  • Loves “fixing” things with his tools
  • Is best buds with our dog Randy
  • Loves to be the dog when Ceci is pretending to be a dog trainer
  • Carries his blanket EVERYWHERE
  • Thinks he needs to sleep with Daddy at least for a few hours EVERY single night
  • Kicks, hits and punches in his sleep-but only me not his Dad?!?
  • Has a growing vocabulary: no (which is his answer to everything), mine, more, Mommy, Daddy, eep (Jeep), owe, ball, dog, wow, knock knock, nine (instead of 1,2,3, go he says 9,9,9,go), hi, bye, ook (look)
  • Loves cherry tomatoes and eats them like Ceci eats candy



  • Is 9 months old and is a hound dog that joined our family when we moved to Georgia in September.
  • Is spoiled rotten
  • Lets Orlando torture lay on him and play with his floppy ears
  • Loves to jump the fence and play “run away from Mommy”
  • Plays fetch really well in the house but his hound nose gets him too distracted to play fetch at the dog park.
  • Hates the vacuum cleaner and thinks it is going to attack him every time it comes out of the closet


We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Love The MALDO’S
