Happy Holidays 2021

Welcome, Baby Ruby!

This year, we were so delighted to bring sweet Ruby Lee Ngo into our family. Ruby, aka “The Scoobs,” was born on January 17, 2021 at 9:27AM—the first baby born in the hospital that day! While she was 6 lbs., 7 oz. at birth, she’s stayed pretty little!

Welcome, Baby Ruby!

Friends Forever

While Louis thought Ruby was a bit boring at first, the two have become best of friends. Ruby thinks Louis is the funniest thing ever, while Louis loves practicing his wrestling moves on his sister.

Ruby Lee

Ruby is very into chewing on things, throwing things, and tearing things apart. She does all of this destruction with a sweet smile—so she is very good at never getting in trouble! Her first words were “ba” (“dad”) and “hello!” She loves to crawl around the house, wave, and squeal at the cats.

Louis Sandino

Louis’s favorite things are cats (real and stuffed), music, and TV, when he can get it! He especially loves cat videos that combine all of this favorite things. He’s also very into going to the park, reading to his sister, and hanging out with Grandpa Lou (ông nội). He continues to hate bedtime and vegetables.

Our Family

We have now been in our new home for over a year. The cats have definitely done their best to fill it with fur and scratches, but we’re doing improvements little by little. We even get cat visitors from next door!

Richard continues his job with the SSA, while Mandy is still working with the gender studies program at UCSD.

We wish you the best end of 2021—and a great start to 2022!
