it's november already?

yup. i guess so. better get this blog updated! starting with the youngest of our family...

kanoa is 7 months today and super mobile! he's been crawling for a month, and is now cruising around pretty well on his feet. he can make his way from one end of the couch to the other, from bookcase to the speaker to his jumper, etc. no teeth yet, but expecting them any week here. he LOVES following around his big brother! who we think he calls "na-na". he's also saying "da-da" and "ma-ma".

kaimana is pretty well potty-trained! still using diapers at night, but that's it! of course, there's the occasional accident, but i'd say he's doing great :) he is also very very 3 years old. he's definitely testing boundaries. we've also entered the era of "why?". about EVERYTHING. he also LOVES getting his baby brother to follow him around. of course, he also loves testing boundaries with his brother. like, hmmmmm, what will happen if i walk over and bump my knee into my brother's head?

as for me, i'm hanging in there. sometimes it feels like just barely. two kids is more than twice the work i think. we're still hunting for a boat... might be getting pretty close on one!

that's a general update for now. i'll try not to let 3 months pass by again without posting. but i'm not making any promises!! :)

4 months.

the boys both had check-ups last week.... kaimana for his 3 year and kanoa for his 4 month. they both did great (kanoa got 2 shots), and we're happy to have two healthy boys! we've also made the big step this week and moved kanoa into his brother's room.... now dubbed the 'brothers room'. hoping to encourage better night sleeping for the baby without ruining the big brother's. :)

kaimana (3 years)... 31lb (45th percentile), 36" (30th percentile)

12 weeks.

12 weeks old! at his 2 month check-up, kanoa measured in at 14 lbs and 24 inches. just this week, he's enjoying tummy-time a little more... though not for too long :) he's super vocal! i'll try to get a video soon to post. he's still getting up once or twice to eat at night, so mommy is pretty tired most of the time! but, he's a big boy and hungry! which has also led me to start trying to get him interested in baby cereal. he doesn't love it yet, but it's only been a few days. crossing my fingers that he'll take to it soon and that it may help us get through the night. but, we'll see!
