MY BABY IS 5 MONTHS OLD!!



Koa is 5 months old! The time really has flown by! He is the sweetest and happiest little boy. He loves to put anything and everything in his mouth... including his hands! He is working on his bottom teeth! He drools like i've never seen! I swear he goes through 5 shirts a day. He smiles non stop because he loves the attention it gets him! He rolls all around and sleeps 12 hours at night like his big sister... Koa is GINORMOUS for his age! He is 20 pounds... there is a 2 year old at church in nursery with Kaile who is only 22 pounds! His 12 month clothes are getting a little snug! He is the fat version of Glenn... I cannot believe how much both of my kids look like their dad! He LOVES toys. I am totally putty in his hands and I am pretty sure he already knows that I am a sucker for him!

Embarassing moments...

WE ALL HAVE THEM... RIGHT?! WELL I FINALLY STARTED WORKING OUT SINCE HAVING KOA AND IT'S FEELS REALLY GOOD... UNTIL TODAY WHEN I WAS DOING "STEP UPS" WITH A WEIGHT ON MY SHOULDERS (ONLY 20 LBS) AND AS I STEPPED DOWN MY ANKLE TOTALLY ROLLED AND I ATE IT. SURPRISINGLY MY ANKLE FEELS FINE BUT MY BACK IS KILLING ME! IT KNOCKED THE WIND OUT OF ME AND OF COURSE THERE WAS A FEW FIREMEN WORKING OUT RIGHT BY US WHICH WAS SUPER EMBARASSING! ONE CAME OVER TO SEE IF I WAS OKAY AND I WAS TRYING TO CATCH MY BREATH... HE WAS LIKE WE SHOULD TAKE YOU TO THE HOSPITAL... BUT I HAD MY KIDS IN THE DAYCARE AT THE GYM AND DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE THEM... RIGHT WHEN I AM GETTING INTO THE GYM ROUTINE I HAVE TO PULL A BLONDE MOVE! I THINK I JUST NEED A COUPLE OF DAYS OF REST... HOPEFULLY! THANKS TO MY "GYM FRIENDS" FOR HELPING ME WITH THE KIDDIES!

KAILES FIRST TATTOO...


SHE LOVES HER TATTOO!! I TOLD GLENN THAT WHEN SHE WANTS A TATTOO AT 18 IT'S HIS JOB TO TELL HER NO!

Oh GLENN!

This past weekend Glenn went camping and hiking in Owens Valley for his geology class and he came home with "presents" for the kids... Tattoos for a 22 month old and a 4 month old?! I love my husband because he is so dang funny. I think he doesn't want to be the only one in the family with a tattoo and since he knows I won't go anywhere near a tattoo needle, he's making our kids get tattoos! No tattoos yet, but I think he will probably sneak a few onto them the next time I am away for a minute or two!

BUSY WEEKEND!

My sister in law Kaila was having her work picnic at Knott's Berry Farm this year so she hooked it up with tickets to Knott's, a parking pass, and even food vouchers! We decided to take Kaile so that she could spend some time with just mommy and daddy and no Koa. We woke her up from her nap so that we could meet up with Glenns family for the picnic and she was not happy to be woken up! The whole way to Knott's she cried for "wassie" (her pacifier which she still wants when she is tired or sad). She was mad that I refused to give it to her! SHE'S ALMOST 2! She doesn't need a dang passy...
As soon as we got there and she saw her cousin Malia her mood totally changed! She was all smiles from that point on!
Kaile had so much fun on all of the rides! This one was her favorite! She had the cutest little scream every time the car would speed around the corner. It was SO cute!
She even went on the huff and puff ride and did a good job of making herself move on the tracks by moving the handle back and forth. We had so much fun at Knott's but we were SO tired from a long day of fun!
We picked up Koa from my sisters house (thanks again Auntie for watching him) and when we got home he kept coughing and coughing (he had a cough for the past few days but it got really bad last night). He was up for a lot of the night coughing until he would throw up and he had a fever that got pretty high. This morning I couldn't take it anymore so we took him to the ER. He turned on the charm for all of the nurses and doctors! I am pretty sure every nurse came in to see him because they said they had heard that "the cutest little butterball" was in room 6. The doctor did some X-rays because she was concerned about "sounds" in his lungs but luckily, the X-rays were normal! Luckily I got to nap for a few hours when we got home from the hospital! This weekend seemed SO long!


I had to throw in this picture of Koa! He loves to sit in his bumbo chair up on the counter or table when I cook! He is so precious!

My little skater girl

video

Kaile always wants to skateboard by herself so Glenn was teaching her how to bend her knees and balance and she was actually doing pretty good going down a little hill at Grandma Deenas house. It makes me totally nervous because she wants to stand by herself on the board... I am such a paranoid mother!

BACK TO REALITY....

video

(Koa started eating baby foods the past couple weeks and he doesn't know how he feels about it... and I know, I sound like a total wierdo talking to Koa...)

Glenn took the summer semester off of school this year and it was the best thing ever! It was so nice for me to have him home a lot after having a new baby. Glenn works the night shift (7pm-3am) and would come home from work and relieve me of Koa if he was having a rough night! Now that school has started again things have gotten crazy again! Luckily, Koa sleeps great now (well... most nights). When Koa does have a rough night Glenn tries to help but now I have to tell him "go back to sleep babe" so I don't feel bad for depriving him of sleep (I mean who needs sleep while working full time and going to school full time)?! I felt so spoiled having Glenn home so much this summer and am sad that we have to get back to REALITY...

Another little update... The kids went to the doctor yesterday... Koa needed his 4 month checkup and a round of shots and Kaile got her flu shot. I have to say that my kids are HUGE! I was looking at their "growth curve" and Kaile is in the 75th percentile for both weight and height she is right under 29 pounds and is 35 inches tall. Koa was 18 pounds 11 ounces and 24 1/2 inches putting him OFF THE CHARTS for weight and in the 50th percentile for height! haha my little chubby shorty! Kaile was the same way as a baby and is now pretty tall for her age. I was SO proud of Kaile for not crying AT ALL for her shot... it wasn't until Koa got his 4 shots that she freaked a little bit because he was screaming bloody murder. Kaile is so protective and sweet with Koa and it's so fun to watch her love him!

For the sake of journaling...

So I was kinda mad at Glenn on Wednesday (our actual anniversary) for not planning anything since this year was his turn... he kept telling me that he had plans for Saturday since he had to go to work and school on Wednesday. I said "SURE" (maybe with a little attitude) because Glenn is more of a "last minuter" when it comes to planning surprises (usually he is surprised too because he kinda just drives somewhere and acts like he was planning it for weeks). Well, to my surprise, he actually really did have something planned for Saturday and it was the sweetest and cheesiest thing ever (which was PERFECT). We dropped the kids off at my moms and then he drove me to the huntington harbor where a gondola was waiting. Haha yes, he took me on an hour gondola ride complete with a singing gondoleer in his little striped shirt. It was so much fun! He even had flowers, cheesecake (my weakness), and sparkling cider waiting for me! So, I have to give him credit for actually planning something in advance and for thinking of something that we had never done before! I was pretty sad that I didn't have my camera with me!

OUR 3 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

I cannot believe that we have been married for 3 years! It has gone by so fast! The past 3 years have been the best ever! I am SO lucky to have Glenn and am so thankful that I have such a loving and caring (and totally hot) husband and daddy for my kids!
I love you babe and look forward to an eternity with you! You're stuck with me FOREVER mawhahahaha!
Our reception was so much fun and turned out to be beautiful! My mom planned pretty much everything! I told her I love pink and black and didn't care too much about all of the details... I just wanted to get married! My mother in law made the gorgeous flower arrangements that I wish never died! I didn't want to leave my reception...
This is why Glenn married me... I am CRAZY and happy!
This is why I married Glenn... he loves to have fun and do random things... He is ALWAYS happy and has such a positive outlook on life and has such ambition yet he is laidback and calm (me... not so calm all the time) I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!
