It's Always Something!

  • Ricky's parents came to visit over the weekend and kept us busy! They brought their dog, much to Aolani's great pleasure! She wore new clothes, played with some of Ricky's old childhood toys, went to a park, wore pigtails for the first time (yep, I cried), and dressed up like a ladybug ;)

  • We ordered another crib, but we are still searching for someone to put doors on it. Please pray as we would like to have this done before Thanksgiving. Anyway, I am postponing a tour of our abode since much will be rearranged for Micaiah.
  • Aolani's antics: knocks on the front door as if to trick me into believing someone is out there and I need to open the door, climbs onto the kitchen chairs (and the table from there!), says daughter and butter, picks her own outfits out of her dresser and places the clothes (socks and shoes, too) on top of the changing table, is good at wiping her mouth and hands while eating, heard her say Mommy twice, makes the yum sound and smacks her lips when I go over to the snack cabinet, and...
  • Aolani is now climbing on her toy bins to reach the door knobs and deadbolts, which she quickly learned to unlock. So, we had to go get some deadbolts that are keyed on both sides. The little stinker!

  • Since we moved to a new city, we have started using Seventh Generation disposable diapers. It was a little sad and a little tough for us to give up the cloth diapers. However, the cloth diapers (BumGenius) needed a little extra TLC that I was unable to give them (stripping, able to sew, time in the sun...). If I was able-bodied, then we would definitely still be using them and certainly recommend them!
  • Verses to memorize this week: Romans 8:25-7 ~ But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
