May 16, 2017 – 20 Months & Happy Mother’s Day…

Hello Everyone!

Happy 20 month birthday to Kaleo, Makani & Keoni. 🙂


Happy Mother’s Day!!!

The past couple of weeks we have noticed that the boys are getting more and more attached to certain objects – e.g. pacifiers, lovies (monkey blanket), toys, etc… We had an incident last week where their lovies were in the wash, (unbeknownst to me). Kaleo & Makani were PISSED!!! They screamed and cried for almost an hour (Keoni is our best sleeper & he didn’t care either way). They all have been pretty good about naptime or bedtime, but on this night they were just not having it. Rachel replaced their monkeys with another plush blanket animal but that didn’t work. Finally I had to go upstairs and bring both of them down until their lovies made it out of the dryer. They were elated to be reunited with their monkeys and happily nodded off into dreamland…

We have learned that you should always have a backup of their coveted lovie or whatever they are attached to and rotate it out just for situations like I described. It sounds good in theory, but we all know how Real Life works! lol 🙂


Lovies (Monk, monk!)

Rachel is still in recovery mode. Things are going well, but she can not lift the babies yet and she is having a difficult time sleeping as a result of the pain medication that she has been taking. Hopefully her recovery will continue to progress with time!

It has been difficult to get the boys out of the house on a regular basis. I have been working on toddler proofing our small backyard with some success. We have a slide, sandbox, water table and a couple of garden boxes filled with dirt that they can play in. Getting outside into the backyard usually makes them pretty happy, but I know they miss our family outings on the weekends. 😦

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms!!!


Until next time, Mahalo ke Akua…

    It’s so strange to realize it’s been eight months since their first birthday and only four months until their second!
    Thank you, Paul, for Everything!! Including keeping up with blog posts during these busy- crazy weeks where you’re doing All of the Things!!!
    The boys and I love you and appreciate you more than words can express (way more than their words 😉

    Great article. Jacob is attached to his wubbanub – specifically the red dog one, though he is ok with others too. We now have 3 of the red dog ones. And Sammy needs his pacifier or he’ll stick his hand in his mouth and try to gag himself! He’s done that several times!! So I know what you mean about having these things handy.

    We also have a sandbox in the back yard so Jake can play in that. He loves it, and he’s learning to love going and doing just about anything outside. It’s amazing though that he gets into things that we don’t want him to get into, and he somewhat ignores the things we want him to focus on. Boys!!

    Feel better soon, Rachel!
