I didn't have a picture of us three at Thanksgiving, I am horrible at remembering to get us three in a photo, but I'm sure one of the sister in laws has one so stay posted.  Anyway here is my little Inoke's photo shoot for Thanksgiving.

He just loves his cousin Daniel! 

I am thankful for my family and wonderful supportive friends.  Sione and Inoke.  My Harris family, and the Asisi family.  This little miracle baby gives me so much love, I am thankful that Heavenly Father blessed us to have him in our lives.  I am thankful that my husband and I have jobs.  I am thankful we are able to pay our bills.  I am thankful that my mother in law has let us live in her home and take care of it while she is in California.  I am thankful for the challenges Heavenly Father places in my life only to have my faith grow stronger.  I am thankful for love.

Scooting to Crawling

So for the last couple months Inoke has been "scooting" on his back to get around.

It is the best and funniest to watch.

As I posted before Inoke has been trying to crawl for awhile now, up on his hands, knees and toes.  He's been able to move his legs but couldn't quite figure out the arm movement.
Well on Thanksgiving we were getting stuff ready, Daniel was in the living room entertaining Inoke and Ela was vacuuming and I was in the kitchen.  All the sudden I hear Daniel yelling from the other room and this is what I was able to capture!

I am so happy and sad at the same time, such mixed emotions.  I love that he is discovering these things and growing, but I want him to stay my little cuddle bug! I'm sure this is a classic roller coaster of emotions for every parent!

So now that he is getting the hang of it, I found that he had crawled underneath his bouncer and he found his basket of toys .....
HA! Busted! 

Love this guy so much.

6 months!

I can't believe my boy is already 6 months! It's exciting and sad at the same time.  He is moving, moving and moving some more. I love it.
6 months appointment stats:  Weight  17.1 lbs - 55%
                                                      Length 27" - 75%
                                                      Head  16 3/4" - 20% ;(

6 months:  
Sitting up on his own
Scooting backwards
Eating solids like crazy, he loved the turkey and rice combo.
Holding his own bottle, all the time!
Hates getting into the car seat, is fine once the car is moving though
Is an amamzing road tripper
Is distinguishing which toy is which, and getting particular about which ones he wants to play with
Laughing ALOT
Still smiling all the time
Starting to reach to be picked up
Starting to get shy around strangers
Bigger and grosser poos, from the baby food, sick
Still loves the bath, but now starting to splash around and eat bubbles

So alot is going on with this little guy, he just loves discovering new things, and I love watching him try and figure out how to get around, and watching him play with his toys is the best.

5 months

Inoke is now 5 1/2 months.  He is "talking" so much, he is so vocal, I love it.  Although it sounds more like more like squealing, shrieking, and yelling.
He is doing "raspberries", spitting and drooling everywhere.
He is chewing on EVERYTHING, i guess he's teething but nothing cutting through as of yet.
He his holding his own bottle, more or less.
He seems to enjoy peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, and green beans.  We tried bananas the other day and he didn't really care for them, interesting I thought he would love them because of the sweetness, it would be super great if he didn't have a sweet tooth like his mama!
He is scooting backwards when he lays on his back.
He is trying to crawl, gets up on all fours, rocks back and forth, gets one knee forward then falls down.  But he keeps on trying.
He loves his activity jumper, can sit in that thing for hours, well not literally ;).
He is over laying down.  Doesn't really want anything to do with his activity mat, bouncer, or swing anymore, he wants to be upright to see all of the action.
He sits very calmly with dad listening to music on the computer, to the point of dozing off and almost falling asleep.
He is still so smiley and I can't get enough of him.

He's been trying so hard to crawl he's got little red knees... 


I got the most wonderful news the other day.  My very dear friend Mindy told me she was pregnant.... with twins!!!! She is an amazing person and I love to be around her.  I know that her and Lucas are going to make the most awesome parents!  Mindy is creative, funny, kind, giving, a great listener, a wonderful aunt, just an all around fantastic lady! I am so thrilled and filled with joy for the Kane family!

Congrats my friend!

Fall time and Halloween

I love Halloween, and I cannot wait until Inoke is old enough to trick or treat, go to corn mazes, go on hay rides, etc.  I just love this time of year.

Somebody feed this Angry Bird!


Now that Sione's been layed off of work, we have lots of time on our hands.  We finished getting Inoke's room set up. He has been doing really well sleeping in his crib, has an occasional melt down where he doesn't want to be left alone, and just wants to be held, but that's just fine by me! 

He's propped up by his boppie, but he's been practicing sitting up on his own.

We rearranged the living room, cleaned out some closest, took stuff to DI.  Lots of fun.

The other day we met Fia, Scott and the boys for some bowling.  We had a little photo shoot to show you just how much fun Inoke was having!
