Day 3 and 4

Day 2 continued: We attempted to go out for dinner as a family. Um, we're not ready for that yet. We just went to White Spot and Gary had to stand and hold Koen the hold time (he was crying) and Kai ended up covered in ketchup, head to toe. I did not enjoy my meal due to the antics.

(We put him in here and his neck is fine. He wants to reach the toys but can't grab onto them. He loves being upright!)

Day 3: Church and then I went and picked up a huge lot of awesome size 3 clothes off of craigslist. It was a whole box of clothes that will be his entire wardrobe for a year, all name brand stuff in perfect condition, for $50. Then, Gary and I spent about 2-3 hours each cleaning the house. We've been decluttering and also cleaning all the things you rarely clean (you know, behind the fridge and stove etc).

Day 4: We went for a family walk at 8:30am to see the houses that were burnt down by our place. Then, we all did some shopping and I got a new bathing suit and shoes! Kai and I played outside and Kai learned how to ride a tricycle.

I love having one on one time with Kai. He is such an easy kid. I find Kai way easier than Koen right now so I appreciate it when Gary takes Koen and I can do something fun with Kai.
(I wish i had changed the aperture...this could've been cute. It's so hard to catch him looking at the camera these days)
Koen has a crazy schedule. He basically eats every 2 hours throughout the day. He eats for 10 minutes, is up for about 1.5 hours and then power naps for 30 minutes to an hour. I fed him at 7, 10, 12, 2, 4, frustrating. However, all this eating during the day allows him to sleep a lot at night. Last night he went down at 8pm and woke up at 4am for a feed and then slept til 7am. Good stuff.

This is how he sleeps during the day with Gary. If we put him down somewhere, he just cries and does not sleep. I tend to carry him in the bjorn because he's just so heavy. When he's a bit older we'll have to work on this a bit more but as long as he's sleeping well at night, I don't care how we get him to sleep in the daytime (at this point!)


  1. was the fire late Sunday night? Where? We heard lots of sirens, and was wondering what it was all about...

  2. Hey guys
    Glad you are enjoying your spring break.
    Koen looks happy in the exersaucer!! That's awesome.

    Much love sent to Kai and Koen (and you guys) from our kids.
