Maikah is 9 months old!!

The last month has been filled with a lot of firsts! Maikah started crawling out of nowhere when he just learned to sit up a week before that. He went from the army crawl for about 2 weeks to now a full on knee crawl. Just this last week he started pulling himself up onto things! The cutest thing is that he now says "Mama". I am 90% positive that he's saying it to me lol. This is definitely a little fast for me! He is a huge eater and likes any veggies or fruit. He's not so much into meats so we supplement with some tofu :)
We are all ready to celebrate his first Xmas. Before we know it will be his 1st Birthday!!
Much love, Amanda

Maikah is 8 Months Old!

Holy moly I'm a week late on this update! It seems like I can't get a moment to myself ever! This little kid is all over the place. A lot of progress has happened this past month. Maikah started sitting up by himself and went right into the "army crawl". It seems like he did it all overnight. I knew I would be kicking myself when he started to be mobile and I remember why. Baby proofing time! He gets faster and faster everyday.

This kid also feels like he weighs a ton. He's gotten so big and strong. He could seriously eat all day if I had time lol. He seems to have gotten a lot better sleeping throughout the night (knock on wood!!), but it seems to go in phases. His teeth should definitely be coming in this month so that will be a whole new thing to go through. His napping is still horrible. He doesn't like sleeping alone. Babies his age are supposed to have 2-3 naps/day. Maikah has MAYBE 1 nap or 2 if I'm realllly lucky.  He sleeps a lot better if someone is laying with him, of course, but I obviously don't have the time to do that with the other 2 girls. It's a constant juggling act.

Kiyoko is my main support when Ian isn't home. She is totally my little helper. At this time she really loves to help, but I know that will change as she gets older. He loves to be with her so much and gets so happy when she gets home from school. Kaya, on the other hand, still could give 2 craps about him. She likes to pretend she's playing with him, but she's kind of scared to be around him a lot. She's been really needy so that's another hard thing to juggle, but I know she needs it so I really try to give them all attention.

The girls are doing great in school and we are getting ready for the holidays (already). It's our favorite time of the year! We hope you all are doing great and we'll update you again soon!!!

Maikah Is 7 Months Old! The Battle Continues...

Maikah is 7 months old!!!
Weight: 19lbs Length Yes, he is SO adorable, but this little man is still giving us a run for our money!! Everywhere he goes he gets to be held. Whether it's with his cousins because they don't see him that much, Daddy that misses him when he's at work all day or even big sissy Kiyoko who picks him up just because she's strong enough to...he is having a really hard time being on his own. This makes it especially hard when I am with him during the week. It's hard for me to get stuff done when he cries if he's not held all the time. He is crying laying right next to me AS I WRITE THIS!! You'd think after baby #3 that I would have answers, but I don't. I know this obviously won't last forever, but my days seem like months and I'm pulling all my hair out. On the flip side...he is really trying to do more things like sitting up, trying new foods and rolling over (when we put him down for 10 seconds lol) He loves to be outside, at the beach or just hanging out at the pool. I love this little dude regardless of all the frustration. I know there will come a time when I wish I could rewind back to when he's little. Time goes by so fast and we are really lucky to have 3 beautiful children. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy some of the pictures from this last month :))
