Taula'i: 1-5 months

Don’t worry!  I’m only posting a couple of highlights for each month so I’m not blogging your eyes off for days hours.  I’m posting this today because my little Radical will be 6 months in 3 days; EEK!

I month:
` Took your 1st road trip to visit Ama and Papa.
` Went to the beach.

2 months:
` Started sleeping through the night.  Hallelujah!
` Switched to formula; this made you more happy and content.  I was sad and beat myself up over it but that’s for another post.

3 months:
` Experienced your first Merrie Monarch week.  You loved all the attention.
` Had your first taste of poi.  Your daddy just couldn’t wait…

4 months:
` Went on your 1st plane ride to visit Nana and the rest of the family on O’ahu. 
` Started rolling over.  You gave me a mini heart attack when I woke up one morning to find you on your tummy.  Thanks for the adrenaline rush at 5am.  I was definitely wide awake after that.

5 months:
` You’re worming your way to your toys or to whatever catches your eye.
` Your 1st tooth is making an appearance.
` You love to sleep with your face down.  You get mad every time I turn your head and as soon as I walk away, you resume the face down position. I’m not sure why you do this but it makes me paranoid.

You love your brothers and the attention they give you.  They come to your rescue with every little peep you make.  They love to make you laugh and they love to cuddle with you.  You can’t wait to get in on the action but for now you’re stuck on my lap watching them, squealing in delight at everything they do.

Happy Saturday, friends!

Coffee Date : I'm Still Alive

Good morning, Lovelies!  I’m linking up with Alissa over at Rags to Stitches for Coffee Date Friday.  Wanna join me?

If we were having coffee, you would probably tell me “it’s about darn time!” to which I’d reply “I know, right?!”  Shoot, life’s been chaos busy.  I seriously forgot what life was like with a baby; they gotta eat, they cry, they gotta be carried and cuddled and loved.  It’s been non-stop from one Radical to the next and sometimes I feel like I’m hanging on by a thread.  I’ve been in my own world trying to survive life with 3 Radicals and man oh man; time totally flew by like it’s nobody’s business.  Can you believe we’re 2 days away from July?  Holy cow!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell that I have so much to tell you.  Haha!  I guess I would start with how we had to postpone our move (with tears in my eyes).  Moving cost money and it never fails that when we’re almost there…something happens that involves spending money.  The truck broke, the boat broke, a family reunion, and the list goes on.

Are y’all wondering why the heck do we have a boat when we’re trying to save money?  In my dysfunctional brain, a boat = leisure time.  Well, if we were having coffee I’d tell you that the boat is our income.  And the source of my irritation.  I’m just kidding.  Or maybe not.  Anyway, now that the boat (and truck) is up and running, the overnight trips have returned.  It’s bittersweet.  Great on the making/saving money; not so great when the Mister is gone for days.  Hmph.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that Radical #1 starts Kindergarten this year.  I was doing great emotionally until I went to get his application.  My anxiety returned with a vengeance as soon as I walked out of the office.  I was having hot flashes and all.  And I’m now finding every excuse not complete it. 

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m so excited to go home for the 4th of July.  I cannot wait.  I haven’t seen my parents since Mother’s Day.  That’s a long time.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that Radical #3 will be 6 months in 4 days.  6 months?  I’d tell you that I feel guilty for not doing his monthly updates.  I’d tell you that because I don’t want to blog your eyeballs off, I’m hoping to get his 1-5 month highlights post up tomorrow.  Keyword: hoping.  Haha!

If we were having coffee, I’d ask you how the heck you’ve been.  What have you been up to?  How’s life?
