Filling Out

  • Today is my first day taking care of the kiddos by myself as Ricky returned to work. There have been a few tears from me brought about by a wild toddler, but we're all alive ;)
  • Aolani is saying a few more words, which I do not remember what they are. Her new thing, though, is to strip and run around naked! Not fun for me (but cute still). She is a GREAT big sister! She loves baby Micaiah -- tries to pick him up, holds him, kisses him, pats him, and is gentle and kind towards him... She always wants to play with the baby. What a gift from God this is!
  • Micaiah is healthy, gaining weight (almost nine pounds), happy, cries little, spews milk from his nose, lost his umbilical cord on day 15, is filling out in the face (awww -- so adorable), and is still sorting out when to sleep and when to be awake.
  • Birth story will hopefully come in the next week or so...
  • Verse to memorize this week: Revelation 12:11 ~ They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
