My sweet baby....

Taking the Wheel

Thank you all who have been supportive during this most recent transition to day care and my new job. Your encouraging words have been so wonderful. My new job is AWESOME! I can't wait to get groovin'....I have so much to learn and am loving every bit of research I'm doing.
Day care update We've made it through two weeks now and all is well. We've survived our first cold (yes, after only 4 days he brought home a cold) and a transition from weekend back to "school." He's doing wonderfully and each day seems to be a bit easier and he's a bit more comfortable to be himself. He's even doing 'art.' I had the pleasure of watching him play one day before he noticed I was there. It's hard to describe, but it was so neat watching him. He's still cautious and always has a serious look on his face. He seems to be intentional in every move he makes and is very aware of his surroundings. I'm still learning so much about him and his wonderful personality. Then...the look when he sees me. It's the best look. It melts my heart and makes me smile throught my whole being. His little legs can't carry him fast enough and he flaps his arms as if they'll propel him over to me.

Mother's Day After many years of bittersweet (some were downright sad) Mother's Days...I've had two very special ones. Exactly a year ago, we found out about Kainoa. It was such a wonderful celebration...my heart was light and we were so excited...I hadn't started to feel the weight of the wait yet. Then, of course, this year, he's here with us. My hubby and little boy took me out for pancakes...what a treat! Then, we had my parents, brothers and their families over for lunch and swimming. The food was delicious, as always, and we had so much to celebrate. We are expecting a new neice next month and my 8 month pregnant SIL was absolutely glowing. I've said it before...and I'll say it again...thank goodness for families...especially Moms.

I'm so glad he's doing so well in daycare! You are the cutest little family and it's plain to see that Kainoa is meant to be YOURS! He's a lucky little boy to have such a great mom. Keep me posted on things. I want to hear more about the new job when you have some time.

So glad you had a nice Mother's Day! Also glad to know you guys are doing well. We will be taking that big step with daycare starting in the fall and I am not looking forward to it. A big step for Camille and a big step for me. Congratulations on the new job!
