Some updates on our life right now

I've already written once that this pregnancy is so different from my first one. It's held true so far. I am exhausted all the time, like I literally cannot get enough sleep. I'm sure that's partly due to having a one year old, but it can't be completely KB's fault. I have zero motivation, but I am also going to go ahead and blame that on the fact that my house is hot all the time.
(Insert: We live on the Windward side of Oahu, where it is rare for homes to be air conditioned. We knew this coming in, but we were under the impression that the breezes [WINDward, get it?] would keep us cool. We got gypped.  Our house has no ventilation through the living room except for one little place, and really no ventilation in the kitchen/dining room. I actually sweat while I try to get KB to eat anything. Insert over.)
My bedroom can actually get up to about 90 degrees, and I know the kitchen is hotter. So I never want to clean.. It's just too blame hot!

I began feeling little flutters from this little guy/gal last Friday. I feel him/her about once a day, and I love it. My next appointment with my awesome OB is in less than a week. I can't wait! I'm so hoping that she will do another ultrasound so that we get to see our little sea monkey.

KB is quickly becoming a little toddler. We caught her standing on her own about a week ago. She hasn't managed to stand for longer than 10 - 15 seconds, but she's making such progress!  We've also been working hard on getting her to gain weight, per the pediatrician. The ped's suggestion was the easiest thing you can imagine, high fat foods. I was sort of at a loss as to what to feed her to begin with. Then I had a good, long think about what foods I love but try not to eat too much of. So here we are - eating a lot of cheese and peanut butter.  Her favorites are cheddar slices and cottage cheese, but she also really likes guacomole, cream cheese and yogurt.

My little Pumpkin's new thing is that everything/everybody is "sweet". As in, "Sweet Mommy", "Sweet Daddy", "Sweet Dolly", etc. She makes a shhhhh sound (I guess for "sweet") and then she pets whatever she is holding or whoever is holding her. We always add in the "Sweet" part for her. Today I caught her giving herself kisses in the mirror, and then she started petting herself in the mirror making the "Ssshhh" sound. She's so smart, and so incredibly cute at the same time!

Kissing the best looking baby she could find

Giving "Sweet" pets 


  1. I cannot imagine not having air conditioning here! It isn't hot, hot, but it's still hot enough to be uncomfortable without air conditioning, especially without ventilation and your house is getting to 90! No wonder you have no motivation.

    And those pictures of KB are so, so cute! She is adorable! Such a sweetie.

  2. Ah, yes. Our good friends live in a much better-ventilated home on this side, and their house is much more comfortable. We'll make it a few more months :) And thank you! I love this little girl so much!

  3. Oh Lordy, 90 degrees. I feel your pain. You wouldn't think it would get so hot in the Arctic, but our house is 90+ in the summer thanks to awesome insulation, 24 hour sun, and no A/C.
    How big is KB now? She looks so...dare I say it? Sweet :)

  4. She is the sweetest baby around :) At her 12 month appointment, she was 14 lbs, 9 oz (<1% - sad), 27.5 inches long (25%). She fell off the chart with her weight, so that's why we're working hard with fattening foods. It makes sense though, since she started crawling around so much over the past 2 months.
