Lena’s Going Home Video

Continuing with our tradition of “Going Home” videos we’ve created one to celebrate Lena’s coming home. We are so happy to have Lena in our lives, and can’t wait to watch her grow up. Thank you for all the support and well wishes.

We love you guys,
Mike, Melissa, Landon, & Lena

For those of you who never saw Landon’s video I’ve included it below too…

Still waiting for OR

We were told we’re next for the OR. Should be less than 20 min from now with baby in about 30.

Starting to feel real

10:54 and it just hit Melissa that we’re about to do this. Try to balance excitement with nervousness. It’s getting closer.

T minus 1 hour

We’re only one hour away from our scheduled OR appointment. The iPad is out and we’re getting antsy. Can’t wait to meet this little girl.

Heading to the Hospital

While saying goodbye to Landon this morning he asked if we were going to get him a new Superman monster Truck. Melissa responded with “No Landon we are going to go get your new baby sister”… Landon’s response was “Oh”, with disappointment.

Landon’s 3rd Birthday

Yesterday we started celebrating Landon’s 3rd Birthday with some great friends, good food, and amazing weather. We surprised Landon when he woke up from nap with a Bounce House for his present. We also played a lot of fun games and finished the night off with Pinata. Here are a couple videos and pictures from the party. Thanks to everyone who came over and helped make this a memorable party.

I’d also like to send a special shout out to Grandma Marcia. She flew out here from Chicago for the weekend to spend some quality time with us. Even though she was successful in that goal she also did a ton of gardening and prepping to make our house look great for the party. This weekend wouldn’t have gone as smoothly without you, so thank you so much!!!! We’ll see you soon.


Easter Egg Hunt 2012

It’s been almost a year since my last post, so I was thinking it’s about time for another video update. This was taken Easter Morning while Landon was searching for Easter Eggs. The first time around was a lot of fun, but he didn’t appreciate it as much when we started hiding the eggs without treats in them. What can I say, the kid is pretty smart.

This video is pretty long, but figured if there was ever an audience that could sit through it, it would be the loyal fans of Sterncast.com. I say loyal, because anyone who is still checking this site after a full year without any updates is definitely loyal!


Almost 2 Videos

Last weekend we took Landon to the Please Touch Museum and he showed us that he’s got some skills on the balance beam.

Melissa and Landon going down the super slide at the Harleysville County Fair going on right now.

After the slide Landon met up with an older chick and he drove her around in circles on a duck… I guess you’ll just have to watch the video to understand.

Patty Cake

Landon may not like getting out of the bath, but once he’s out he LOVES to play Patty Cake!


Landon is at that age where he is studying and repeating everything we do. This week Melissa thought it would be a good idea to teach him how to make coffee. Seems like a pretty safe thing for a 20 month old to do, right???
