Been a While

25 Jan

It has been a while since our last post. Sorry. We have been very busy. Sold a house, moved, bought a new house, Nainoas 5th birthday, broken arm, remodeled the house, started new schools, moved into new house, Christmas, anniversary, New Years, Makoa 2nd birthday, trip to Hawaii… I sure I have missed something, but you get the point. Everyone is enjoying being settled, loving El Segundo, living on a cul de sac, and school. Couldn’t ask for more. Here are a few pictures over the last couple months. Enjoy!!!

9 months

13 Oct

Makoa is now 9 months and moving right along. He rolls all over the house to get to where he needs to go. He is now up on all fours and just about ready to go. He also loves to stand on everything. Loves to talk and tell his brother and sister lots of stories. Everybody is so impressed with him.
Oh and by the way he now has 6 teeth. All 4 top teeth at once poor little man!!!

Were back…

Sorry it has been so long. Linds and I had such a great time on our vacation. Missed the kids but so nice to be together. We needed it. Thanks to Grammy and Papa for taking care of our kids.
Makoa is getting so big, he is now
7 months, has two teeth, sitting up, and
getting stronger every day.
He is eating all kids of food, chicken, ground beef, ground turkey,black beans, pinto beans, lentials and all kinds of veggies. Could you beieve that most of it is all home made. Who would of thought. The healthiest kid I have had!!!
Any way such a happy little man he gets and gives so much love.
Here are some new pictures.

Were off… kids

5 Jul

Linds and I are off to Turks and Caicos with no kids. This is a much needed vacation, but going to be hard to leave my little kids behind. Altough no better people then Grammy and Papa to be watching them. They are in good hands. I am really going to try and let go and relax.
Makoa is now 6 months old and starting to try and sit and loves to smile.
Please say prayers for us to enjoy and have a safe trip.

Can you believe it!!! Makoa is doing so well. He is well over 12 lbs, rolling over, cooing, so many smiles, and his head is just about under control.
He has been very busy with trips to Palm Springs, weekends at Grammy and Papa’s, and his first Dodger game. We are all so impressed with his fearless attitude and his endless smiles.
Thank you for all the good thoughts and prayers!!!

4 months

5 May

4 months already. Makoa now weighs 11.7 lbs, and is 23.5 inches long, he is on the charts!!! He also has meet all his congnitive marks. Little behind is gross motor, but just in the neck, everything else is right on track. So close with the holding of his head. Loves his sister and brother, his hands, smiling, and his little stuffed hippo. He is such a fighter and such a hard worker. We are soooo proud of him.
Do I have the best pouty face or what?

Back to Reality

30 Apr

Back from Hawaii and back to reality. School, doctor appts, lots of therapy, and of course tee ball games and sports camps. That’s reality and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am so blessed, thanks to Linds that I am the one that gets to be here for all this.

Makoa is doing great, 11.5 lbs and laughing, smiling, rolling fom side to side, ( even stomach to back a few times) and holding up his head. He continues to amazes his doctors.

There is so much love for this little man, here he is with his favorite big sister.

Hawaii update

21 Apr

First off I have to say that my kids were angels for me on the planes. They came through huge.

We have been busy the last couple of days. Papi ( Linds dad), Lala (Linds mom), Kaialani, Nainoa, Makoa and me went for a hike, not any hike but to the top of Diamod Head. I am so proud of Kaialani and Nainoa they made it to the top. And with no whinning. We also have been at the Outrigger enjoying the sun and surf, the zoo, and just hanging out at the house. My little man is so good he just goes with the flow.

Linds comes in tomorrow for all the activities, should be fun.  Here are some pictures so far.
