Bringing It

  • Over the weekend, we had a family come over to play Settlers of Catan (during Aolani's nap time!), and our friend from Asbury just came for a four day visit! Our souls were nourished and refreshed :)
  • Micaiah has "found" his hands and feet. He likes to check his feet out more than his hands though! He is really filling out his 0-3 months outfits; maybe we'll move to the next size soon. He is still taking four naps a day, and I am waiting for it to go to three, so that a routine can become more evident. We are doing the eat, wake, sleep routine right now about every two hours or so. Ever since we moved the crib into the bedroom, he has begun to sleep a total of 15-16 hours a day compared to 13 hours a day. Micaiah (and I) went to church for the first time since his birth over the weekend. Besides being late and missing worship, most of our time actually there was spent with me rocking him to sleep (in the sling).
  • Aolani is really on her A-game this week -- playing with butter knives, pulling over plants in vases, pouring out essential oils, waving scissors, dumping hundreds of cranberries on the floor (and almonds and chocolate-covered raisins and prunes), wearing the baby's clothes, unloading the refrigerator, ripping my book, (almost) breaking the recliner, knocking over her wardrobe, touring the bins under the bed, standing on her donkey, locking me out of the bedroom, and the list certainly goes on but I'm stopping... OH MY. You would think that we are lax and sloppy, but everything is well-childproofed. She is just sneaky, fast, and way too smart! I.e., the drawers and cabinets in the kitchen each have two different childproof locks on them, yet she has figured out how to jerk them open really hard until they hit the lock so that the contents in the drawer slide forward some. She will do this repeatedly until she can reach her hand in the small opening and pull something out!
  • On a good note, Aolani is speaking a lot more today. Putting several words together. She always runs to me when she has something to say because she knows that I understand her the best (and can, therefore, get her what she wants!) Also, she put on a pair of her shoes today by herself for the first time -- the shoes may have gotten on the wrong feet, but still :)
  • Getting down pat last week's memory verses: Romans 4:20-2 ~ Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.”
