Going Under (and Over)

  • Aolani is 1 1/2 today. We are in disbelief!
  • Aolani's antics: twirling with coasters on her head, dancing while eating pizza at restaurants and entertaining the other diners, blowing kisses (although she hasn't quite mastered the blowing part!), getting embarrassed when she does something wrong by running to one of us and burying her head in us, sneaking out of the restroom stall by crawling underneath the door in order to go see the other pottiers (OH MY!)...

  • While our house-hunting story is quite long and truly deserves to be told in entirety, I do not have the energy or time right now. Bottom line: After 9 days of searching quite desperately and thoroughly, we finally found the place where we are to live. It is a duplex apartment -- much smaller than our current condo, cheaper, and sufficient for us! Suffice it to say that finding a place to live should be easy enough for an able-bodied person, but it was very challenging to find a place that we could make work for our situation. Yet, we were confident that God had prepared a place for us, and He revealed it all in His perfect timing (aka last minute, to us humans). We are so grateful to finally be home -- especially Aolani, who now hates her car seat and puts up a good fight whenever we head towards our minivan. Poor girl :(

  • Did I ever mention how much Aolani hates diaper changes? People would always tell me that a baby hates a dirty diaper and that the child would come to you when their diaper was dirty because they wanted you to change it. Aolani would live in a poopy diaper. When it's time for a diaper change, she screams and cries and wails and fights. Oh, the injustice of having to lay here on my back when I got places to go and people to see! I'm just hoping that Micaiah is textbook in this respect ;)

  • Micaiah is making his presence known as I am definitely getting a lot bigger!
  • Verse to memorize this week: Ephesians 4:32 ~ Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
