Elijah's 10 month update!

Add caption

Elijah's toothless grin is now gone! He has one tooth on the bottom. He is such a good eater and always wants to eat what the rest of us are eating but he still does not have enough teeth. Hopefully more will follow soon so he can start eating things like steak!
"Can you see my tooth?"
He is still doing the army crawl. He is so quick with it too. He can crawl a little on his knees but he is so much faster doing army style that he does it most often. He can go from a sitting position to crawl position and back again without any trouble.

He loves playing with J.P.'s cars and often messes up whatever pretend game J.P. is playing. Elijah has such a sweet spirit about him. When he looks at you it's like he is looking into our soul. He has a way for bring such peace to a very crazy situation. He has a great sense of humor already. He laughs at all of Daddy's joke at just the right time.

We cannot wait to see what this little guy is going to be doing next month. We are so amazed at how well he is doing for how early he was born. We are so blessed with all three of our children. Our quiver is quite full. Thank you God for all three of our little blessings.

Elijah's 9 month update

Elijah is 3/4 of the way to his first birthday! He is doing and eating well. He had a growth spurt since his last checkup and is now in the 27th % for weight 

Elijah is still doing the army crawl all over the place. He really can move around pretty quick. He is just starting to feed himself. He loves being outside with the cool breeze blowing in his face. He loves calling for "momma" and "dada" to get our attention. He loves making all kinds of sounds.

Elijah is such a happy baby.
He just adds so much joy to our family.We never knew how complete we would feel just having him in our family. He is such a welcomed addition to our family.

Jeremiah's 3rd Birthday!

Our "big" three year old

Jeremiah is now 3! We cannot believe it! Where has the time gone. We are planning on sending him to preschool when we get back from our California trip. We think that it is something that he will really benefit from. He is already can count super high, knows his colors, shapes, opposites, can name all the alphabet letters, name the numbers, and is learning to read the sounds that the letters make. He is really wanting to learn to read so we are focusing on that right now.

For his birthday party J.P. wanted Disney Pixar Cars 2 theme. He is really into cars and anything related to cars. He had a blast with all his friends, cake, pinata, opening his presents, and just being a kids where ice cream can be what's for dinner.

It is amazing to see how much he has changed from last year. He is a great boy and a real joy to have as our son. We are amazed at what a sweet spirit he has. So loving, caring and compassionate. He is always looking out for his brother and sister.Don't get me wrong he does at times fit into the "trying threes" sometimes but his general overall personality just amazes us for his age. He is wise beyond his years.

He has also asked Jesus to live in his heart. He wants Jesus to go on a car ride with us and really wants Hi to come over to play. It is the curtest thing ever. He loves praying to God or "talking" to God. It is such a wonderful blessing to see. He has a precious moments Bible and loves to get it out and "read" it.

Elijah's 8 Months Update

Loves being outside!

Elijah is growing up right before our eyes. We cannot believe it! He is scooting all over the place now. He gets up on his knees in the crawl position and rocks back and forth. He has all the right motion but has not put it all together yet. It will not be long before he is really crawling. He thinks any toy on the floor is there for him and he goes right for it (which doesn't always make his siblings to happy). He has already gotten into our DVDs and started teething on the DVD cases.
Can you tell I have green eyes (all three kids have different color eyes) and I am getting some hair!
 He is teething like crazy but he still does not have any teeth yet. You can feel them right underneath the gums though. Everything is going into the mouth. We are really having to watch the toys that Rachel and JP leave on the floor. He can drink out of a straw now and wants to drink out of whatever cup his siblings are drinking out of. He's still a great eater and trembles for his dinner. He is starting to talk now and loves to say "dada" all the time. He has said "mama" but only once or twice. I know it will not be long before I am hearing "mama" all the time.
Love the expression on his face in this one!

Side profile!

Elijah loves to be outside playing. He gets such a big grin when we go for a walk. He loves to see all the trees and feel the wind on his face. He is not a big fan of the swing yet. If he goes to fast he gets freaked out but every time he is in it it gets better and better.

Elijah's 7 Month Update

He is such a happy boy!!!!

Elijah is growing up so fast. He is such a wonderful addition to our family. He is such a smiley, happy, and content  boy.  He is starting to scoot around now, but he prefers to roll over and over to get where he is going. He is very independent and is happy doing his own thing but also loves it when you interact with him.
Elijah up on his knees in the crawl position!

Elijah is still working on sitting up. He would rather work on crawling then sitting up. Although he can and knows how to sit up it is not something he is really interested in right now.  He will sit up for me every now and then and I actually got a picture of it...

One of few pictures of Elijah sitting up!

Elijah is eating really well but he is still spitting up. We hope that the spitting up stops real soon for the sake of our carpet. His favorite food would have to be carrots. He trembles when you are feeding them to him.

There are a few toys that he favors one of which would have to be his little radio music player and we never leave home with out it. He loves his tags ball. He also loves monkeys. We have some toys that have monkeys on them and we have noticed that he is drawn to them. 

We are so impressed with how loving and sweet his disposition is. We are excited to see his personality develop and cannot wait to those precious first words. We know God has many wonderful things in store for him.

Happiest Half Birthday to Our Tuffy Elijah!


I am 6 months old!

We cannot believe that Elijah is already 6 months old! He got more shots and handled them like a champ. He now weighs 14lbs 2oz (3%). He is 23 1/4 in. (13%). Elijah is growing well from where he started. His growing curve is going up even though he is really small compared to others his age. Our Pediatrician is not concerned at all.

Elijah had his first cold this month. He had a really hard time breastfeeding because he could not breath out of his nose. He likes easting out of the bottle now and we are giving him milk that has been pumped more often than the breast.

He also went to the zoo for the first time. He had a hard time seeing any of the animals because he was stuck in the stroller the whole time. He did loved being outside although his little eyes are so sensitive to the bright sun.

He is such a sweet and content baby. Elijah has such a way for bringing peace to such chaotic situations. When things are going crazy and everyone is melting down, he remains clam and peaceful. He is definitely the calm in our storm. We love it when he looks into our eyes. It's like he's looking into our soul. We know God has many great things in store for Elijah! 

These past 6 months have just flown by. We are looking forward to seeing him grow and interact with his siblings more. His first Easter, camping trips, first steps, first trip to Cali., first "real" word, and so much more.

Thank you God for this precious gift of our second son!!

Love this expression!!

Elijah is 5 months

Elijah is now eating lots of solid foods. He loves sweet potatoes, carrots, and squash. He is not so big on peas. He is still working on rolling from his back to his tummy. He gets more than half way and than rolls back onto his back. Still working on sitting up. He stands and can support his weight. He laughs and laughs at the silly things his brother and sister do. He has built in entertainment. It is cute to see all the siblings interacting with each other.

 Elijah loves to talk and I love to listen to him. I wish I understood his little baby language. I cannot wait to hear him saying "mama" and "dada" with meaning.

Day at the Zoo!!

 I took all three kids to the zoo! I met some girlfriends of mine from our church there. We had a great time. I know that the kids loved it. I cannot wait to go back. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun!!!

Elijah was not happy!

Rachel is 1 and a 1/2!

Rachel is already a year and a half! Where does the time go? We feel so blessed to have are little princess Keiki! She is talking in sentences now. She loves to be outside. She climbs the ladder and goes down the slide all by herself. She loves to be in the swing. She loves being girly and playing with her purse, wallet, mirror, comb, dress up outfits, and tea set. But she also loves playing with cars, and trains too. She loves the movie cars and can name a lot of the characters. She loves Thomas and Percy the tank engines.She loves getting her hair done but often pulls her hair accessories out. Her hair is long enough for pigtails now!!! 

She loves dancing and has started singing. She loves to sing "Jesus loves me". She loves playing with her brother.

Love that their holding hands!

Rock wall climbing all by herself!

She can climb the rock wall all by herself. She is adventurous but also cautious at the same time. She is more girly and does wear her emotions on her sleeve. She really wants to please but cannot help herself when it comes to trash, toilet paper, and our DVD's.

She is always happy and laughing. She is such a joy to have and we thank God for our Keiki girl!

Yay, I did it!!!
