15 Months

We spent Nainoa's 15 month day at My Gym and the Natural History Museum. He loved running around My Gym. He especially loved hanging in the ball pit. His language skills are increasing everyday. It's so cool to watch his communication skills grow. His new words this weeks are "down" and "butt" and "Rora (Lola)." Today he actually gave me a real hug. I melted. I love those moments. I love my son. I love being a Mom!

Escaping the heat

Since the twinsies are here for the month we decided to escape the heat and take the whole family to Mt. Charleston. It was 30 degrees cooler than Vegas and oh so perfect. We had a great picnic, played frisbees and enjoyed the fresh air. With it being only 45 minutes away from Vegas we should be go there every weekend! Next time we're camping for sure.

Chuckie Cheeeese

Nainoa's not sure if he likes Chuck.

Isabella and Nainoa

Nainoa had a play date with Isabella last week at Chuckie Cheese. (Your still number one Pema) Nainoa had a fun riding the kiddie rides and he actually really loved trying to play ski ball. He kept on saying "BAALLL...BAALLLL." He wasn't even afraid of the animatronic Chuckie Cheese or the real Chuckie. Maybe this means we can take him to Disneyland soon!

***Sleep update.
So after the first three days of me putting him in the crib awake and him magically falling asleep by rubbing his back and singing....yea not so much after that. The other night Nainoa fell of the bed. I almost had a heart attack but he was fine despite fall onto the wood floor. I usually transfer when I go to bed but Eye isn't home and he rolled off on his side. UGH. So now I have to figure out how to keep in the crib all night without needed to nurse or just buy a railing or buy lots of cushy pillows for my hard floors. I really don't mind nursing while co-sleeping but I don't think I will be happy person if I have to wake up, get out of bed and nurse back to sleep. Sigh....what to do...what to do.....

11 days till 15 months

Now that my online Political Science summer class is over, I feel like I can post more often. (I got an A in the class from an instructor who rarely gives A's ) I haven't written much about Nainoa's milestones lately. I feel like over night he decided to talk. I was seriously worried that he was never going to say anything but "BALL!" So here are the words he can say.
  • Mamma (I melted the first time he actually said it with intention)
  • Wanamelo (watermelon)
  • 0-0 ba (Coco Puffs...yes I let him try it..bad Mom)
  • Peeth (Peas)
  • Uh-oh
  • Dis (this...said like a true Pilipino)
  • Dat (I think he seriously is going to have the Lolos accent)
  • Koko (kiko)
  • Hiiyeee (hi)
  • Gapes (grapes)
  • Ow-Ow (dog)
  • Bak-Bak (chicken)
  • Babuls (bubbles)
  • Boo-k (it's very cute because he says the word like it's a two syllable word)
  • Giyan (Gillian)
  • Dooyan (Dorian)
  • Brrrmmmba (ambrosia which is my word for breast milk..that story in another post)
I finding myself controlling my swear words because he is such a parrot. Nainoa is basically running everywhere. He never just walks anywhere. He runs full blast. My twin nieces are here and he loves playing with them. They are such a great help now that Eye is gone for 10 weeks. Nainoa also loves to climb our stairs. There are 14 un-carpeted stairs that leave bruise marks on his legs because he climbs them so much. He is getting better with the scoot, sit, stand on the way down but he still needs an extra hand.

Nainoa is getting too heavy for the sling so we decided we needed an alternate way to put him to sleep to save our backs, especially Lolo's. We are also going to visit Dadda on the road and we probably will get a babysitter for at least one night so that I can see the show. Two nights ago I breast fed him until he was almost a sleep and then I put him in the crib and started to pat his back. He cried and protested for 45 minutes. I kept singing, continued to pat his back, and gave him kisses when he stood up. I had to keep laying him on his side over and over again. The crying was killing me especially now that he can say, "Mamma." When he finally went to sleep I knew that he didn't need ambrosia to fall asleep, he could actually do it himself. The second night after our bedtime routine I put him in his crib after I nursed and started to sing and pat. He rolled around, stood a few times and actually started talking and singing. He slept in 20 minutes! No crying! I was so excited that today I decided to do the sing/pat for his nap and he fell asleep in 30 minutes. Whoa! Tonight I had to teach so Lolo put him to bed with a little of slinging then transfered awake and did the sing/pat. After 10 minutes he went to sleep. I still love to nurse and don't plan on weaning just yet but if he doesn't need it for a nap or to bed I feel like that's half the battle.
