My now 4 year old, Evan

Evan turned 4 yesterday, Sept. 24! He is growing up so fast.   Today we are having his party at Chuck E Cheese and he's super excited. We did let him open some of our gifts & his grandpa's from NY. He got a Cars Scooter which he loved and some Imaginext dinosaur toys.

Here he is on the morning of his birthday!!

I'll post pics of his CEC party later today or tomorrow.  Hope everyone is having a great weekend =)

Keoni is now 7 Months Old ;)

Keoni turned 7 months old yesterday, Sept. 23.  
He weighs about 18lbs + change and is about 26.5 inches long. 

Keoni loves his big brothers & sister.  He lights up with huge grins when they come home from school especially Owen.  Yes, he loves his mom & dad too ;) There's something about Owen he just loves.  His favorite food is Sweet Potatoes (like daddy) and cereal.  He enjoys his Mum Mums Banana flavor too, goes through about 2 pks of 2 in one setting.  If I leave him on his play mat for minute, he is on the other side of the room instead of on the play mat.  He rolls & scoots everywhere.  Yesterday, I went in to get him from his nap and he was sitting up, big surprise for me!!   He doesn't have a favorite toy, he loves them all.  He does sleep with a blanket close to his face for comfort. 
Below is a list of things he is doing now.
  • Chewing and biting on things
  • Rolls all over the place
  • Grasps and controls small objects
  • Holds bottle
  • Grabs feet and pulls to mouth
  • Adjusts body to see an object
  • Turns head from side to side and then looks up or down
  • Loves visual stimuli
  • Says one syllable sounds like "ma", "mu", "da", and "di"
  • Recognizes us & his siblings
  • Sits without support, leans forward on both hands
  • Can sit up from laying position
  • Bears full weight on feet
  • Bounces when held in standing position and in his bouncer
  • Bears weight on one hand when lying on stomach
  • Passes objects from one hand to another
  • Bangs objects on surfaces
  • Able to fixate on small objects
  • Responds to his name
  • Has taste preferences (hates sweet peas)
  • "Talks" when others are talking
He is just growing too fast so I'm cherishing all these little baby moments as much as possible because he is our LAST baby!
