week in review:3

my week in review is a little late...forgive me! life carries on. marin has perked up a bit and raises a fuss a couple times a day. the moby is our go to solution to all scenarios. no wonder they can sell a super duper long pieces of stretchy fabric for sixty works! she has quite the smile and her eye sight seems to be coming into focus. last night she ate at 9pm, went to bed and didn't wake till 3am for a quick feeding and was back down till 6:30am for another quick feeding, then we snoogled in bed till almost 8.  not all nights are like that, but i'll take it when i can. 

gami is still visiting and c is doing all he can to keep her busy playing airplanes, top gun (wes showed him a 15 min clip and he's hooked!), and lots of "sports".  she is getting some baby snoogles in once and a while too, but i am kind of a baby hog. don't judge me.

it took 3 full weeks for marin to loose her cord. to celebrate we let c take a bath with her. this bath seat is the best bathing option. i'm loving not having to fill up the awkward baby bath tub, and i can bathe two kids at once!

we took c to see 'wreck it ralph' in 3D and it was so cute and funny. marin slept through the whole thing...thankfully! 

sweet little miss just hanging out and sneaking right into our hearts.

this is actually from week two but it was on wes' iphone and i missed it last week. we took c up to the military camp in the national park for a family bowling date night. check out the score...he worked us! and we all bowled with bumpers...shameful!

and how do sleeping baby pictures never get old?! i think i have a million on my camera each time i upload photos.

gobble. gobble.

it goes without saying, but i have a lot to be thankful for. my cup runneth over with so many blessings and i am very very grateful for each one. this year i am humbled by the blessing of the two little handprints on my annual turkey card. i can't even begin to express my gratitude for the amazing husband i have. he is a rockstar at keeping us moving daily, rallying with both kids in the morning so i can get a few extra minutes of shut eye, and he is always offering me encouragement and affirmation. he works hard so i can stay home with our two little turkeys, keeps an eye on an active volcano, and looks pretty good while juggling all these duties! we. are. blessed. 

this year we spent thanksgiving with island friends. it is such a blessing to have fellowship with amazing people when you live in the middle of the pacific. of course we desperately missed our families, but were blessed that gami was visiting over the holiday. we had a lovely time eating (and eating! and eating!), passing a squishing newborn around, and coen played for hours with other kiddos. 

it was inneed and very merry thanksgiving. 


brand spanking new

kahuku photography came over to our house when miss marin was brand spanking new to capture all of her precious newness. 

isn't she lovely. her hair, her smile, her amazingly handsome big brother! 

head over heals. 

three weeks!

week in review: 2

man alive, the last two weeks have just flown by. i feel so so blessed that wes has been home hanging out with us the past two weeks. it's been so fun and i wish we could both stay home and raise the kids together...everyday. 

coen is such a good big brother. he loves his sister so much, and we love watching him interact with her. he is very gentle and kind. he is a little whiny these days, but it must be quite a shock to his system to not always be the center of attention. although he does a pretty good job at maintaining the spot light. i always have at least one self portrait on my camera when i download photos, what a cheese ball. 


marin is a dream. she is such a happy, content baby. if you knew us when coen was born, you should be very happy for us. i am still half waiting for her to get difficult and fussy, and if that happens i know darn well we can handle it. but for now we will just enjoy her cute cuddly sweet little self. 

here is a look back at the last week with kiddos...
