Nainoa not only loves saying "COUSINS!" he also loves playing with them. It's a trip watching him go from parallel play to playing with other kids. He's never been surrounded by so many little cousins before. At one point he was surrounded by nine kids from the age of 20 months to 8 years old. He just fits in here. Hawaii has changed him in ways I can't explain. Summers or Winter breaks in Hawaii are going to have to be a must as he grows older. He needs to always remember where his Daddy comes from. I want him to be an island boy at heart. I want Hawaii to be his second home like it is mine.

Hanging at the Honolulu Zoo with Brogan and MJ

Nainoa loved riding along with MJ

Alema, Donovan and Nainoa. Nainoa loved playing football with these two. I seriously thought Nainoa was going to have a heart attack because he was running so fast up and down the col du sac. He kept yelling "Alema! Alema! Alema!" He even said Alema's name while sleeping.

Kylie and Nainoa were so cute together. He kept following her around all morning.

My favorite picture of them. They are staring at a trapped fly in the window.

Nainoa Delaforce

Nainoa loves saying his full name now. Of course you have to prompt him. What's your name? Nai-n0-a Del-a-force. His Uncle Jeff Delaforce was really impressed that this 20 month old can say his 6 syllable name. It's so cute because he says his name with such pride. I feel like he has grown up even more in this past week that we have been here. I don't know if it's the new surrounding, the beach, meeting his other family but he has definitely changed since we got here. Yesterday at Uncle Jeff's house Nainoa bit his 2 1/2 year old cousin. It wasn't out of anger or frustration either. He hugged C so hard that he fell down then Nainoa took a bite! He has never done that before so it kinda freaked me out. I don't know if it's because he's teething or he just got so excited or what. I immediately hugged C and told 9 that we don't bite. Biting hurts and we never bite. Guess I'll be watching him like a dog everytime he hugs someone.

We've been going to the beach everyday. Nainoa loves the water. He like to float in the ocean. He puts his hands in the sand and let's his upper body and legs float. He usually says, "Mommy do it!" or "Daddy do it!" He can be a bit bossy when he wants you to join in on the fun. I don't mind because I just love hanging in the water with Nainoa. I love watching his little toes in the water. He's getting so brown. Eye wants to live here one day. I wouldn't mind that at all. :)

Loving Uncle Jeff's backyard.

Where's the drum circle at?


I love his Quicksilver rash guard with the Hawaiian islands on the back.

Uncle Verge & Auntie Paula

We have been spending a lot of time with Eye's best friend Verge. He is a brilliant musician singer song writer. Many nights Uncle Verge will jam the guitar with Eye on the cajon. Nainoa loves it when Uncle Verge plays the guitar. He is totally mesmerized. He'll actually stay still for more than 5 minutes and watch him play. It's been a real treat to be surrounded by such amazing talent and wonderful friends. So lucky.

Nainoa has such a funny sense of humor. He loves to make people laugh.
