Giving Thanks

We had a great time in L.A. last weekend. We squeezed as many friends and family as we could in the three short days we were there. I loved the fact that my whole family was together for Thanksgiving. I only wish that Nainoa hadn't burned his fingers on the floor heater at the start of the night. He screamed throughout dinner. I felt terrible and everyone felt horrible for him. (Check out Dorian's face in the family photo) Thank goodness he can communicate with us. We had a cup full of ice water and he kept on asking for it by screaming, "COLD! COLD!" You saw the relief the ice water gave him. Then he was fine and then a minute later he was screaming again wanting to dip his hand. He was fine the day after. His blisters just popped today and we are keeping it clean and putting baby Neosporin.

Dorian couldn't hide the fact that Nainoa's crying was bumming her out.

Nainoa has been hugging a lot. He LOVES to give hugs and kisses. When he sees someone his own size he yells, "HUG!" He'll rush over to them and give them a big hug. Sometimes it a bit too hard. I don't think he knows his own strength. The other day at Marley's he was hugging him so hard that Marley had enough and said, "No!" If you have Facebook check out his link of Marley and Nainoa's dance party.

Nainoa met a very good friend of mine from New York last weekend also. They hit it off. Nainoa kept wanting to see pictures of himself after Wes took them. It's so funny how quick they learn everything. After every picture he took whether it was him or not, Nainoa kept wanting to see the results. Too cute!

Wheeewww! What an amazing L.A. week it has been. The show was success. We saw so many friends and family. The Lolos came down and stayed with us so that we can go out at night. It was great but very tiring! We went out pretty much every night. The highlight of the week was when 9 went to sound check before the show. We put on his coat tails and gave him his baby squonka so that he can join the cast. Luke (co-creator of Stomp & Pandemonium) a.k.a. BusterConductor got inspired to get dressed and do a photo shoot with 9. It was a perfect way to start the night. 9 was so happy. He loved the show. He stayed up past his bed time and almost watched the whole thing. He was so good during the show although he did cry out, "DADDA!!!" during the quietest moment. I love that he loves the show. I love that he loves drumming, squokaphoning and shaking. Sigh...I love my son.

We celebrated Halloween this year with the girls this year. We all met at Glo's apartment and headed to the fancy shmancy houses that Dan recommended us to go. 9 dressed up as Buster Conductor from Pandemonium and I dressed up as a Pandemonium performer. Dadda made 9 his own baby squonkaphone and I made him baby shakers. He was sooo excited to show everybody his moves. He was guided by the twins on either side of him. It was so cute. He loves the twinsies and calls them all the time when we are at home in Vegas, "Gilllliii....Dorriiii."
After 9 tried to go into three houses he decided the stroller was the best bet. Can't wait for next year!
