.memorial day 2010.

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  As a celebration of Memorial Day, mommy's last weekday off for who knows how long (she's going back to work PT/Temp), and daddy's day off...we went to the beach, again!! We knew since it was a holiday, the beach would most likely get crowded, so we decided to head to the beach right after breakfast.  When we got there, there was one other family (who left about 15 minutes after we got there)...but we could tell there was going to be some sort of party because the pavilion was set up for one (the same pavilion where we want to have Kaiya's 1st bday party).  Good thing we got there early, because by the time we left, 4.5 hours later, the beach was full of kids and adults.  Nonetheless, we thoroughly enjoyed the first part of our Memorial Day at Salt Pond...and of course Kaiya enjoyed being in the water and sun.

"Why are we here so early?"
Quickly cheered up by a toy.
Daddy and Kaiya...and my pigtails...and Hello Kitty bathing suit!
Loves to fly in the air.

A little power nap before lunch and one last swim in the water.

When we got home, Uncle Wes, Aunty Dawn, Kaytin and Caleb were already back from camping.  And since Kaiya missed Kaytin and Caleb so much mommy and Kaiya stayed outside to play, while daddy washed the car and got it all spiffy for mommy to take to work tomorrow!

Yasu squeezing Kaiya's everyday occurrence.
Yasu "brushing" Kaiya's hair.
Yes...he was squeezing her cheeks.  LOL!!

That was our Memorial Day 2010!  We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.

.kaiya loves kaiya.

I know everyone likes videos since they don't get to see Kaiya in person, so here's one of her giving herself kisses in the mirror and just being Little Miss Kaiya!

.what happens when kaiya doesn't nap.

Most days Kaiya naps really 2-hour nap and one 1-hour nap.  Sometimes she even throws in a 45-min nap...and cat naps in the car.  However, there are those days where she refuses to take one of the naps.  She'll usually sleep early on those days...or sometimes she'll stay up later because she's so tired.  Well, today was one of those days where she didn't take her long 2-hour nap.  I could tell she was tired, because she would try and sleep when I rocked her...but for some reason she fought it, and she wanted to play with Caleb.  Since I knew I probably wanted to put her down for the night a little earlier, I decided to try and give her dinner at 5, instead of the usual 5:45-6, so that I could start her bedtime routine a little earlier as well.  Weeeelllll...Little Miss Kaiya decided she was too tired to even finish dinner, resulting in....
She kept trying to doze off mid-bite...and I knew she was going to fall asleep in her chair.  So I tried to get in as many bites as possible.  Isn't she too cute!!  And on another note, I cut up an avocado to use on my sandwich so I decided to cut up some little pieces for Kaiya to try and feed herself.  She's had avocado pureed before so I figured why not?  She didn't love it...but she did eat a few pieces.  

And earlier in the day, I was trying to play around with the different options on the Hipstamatic app again and I caught one of her trying to stand...again.  She LOVES to try and stand up...she's only doing it for a couple seconds at a time, but she's trying more and more.  Sometimes she falls on her butt and laughs, sometimes she falls all the way down into a laying position...and laughs.  But look at her chubby little legs!

Mommy got a new iPhone app...and of course it has to do with cameras.  She only has about 20 different cameras, and about 20 different iPhone camera apps.  Well, her new favorite app is the "hipstamatic."  It pretty much combines all of the film cameras (and different types of film and processes) she has and put them onto this one clever application.  Love it!!  So to test it out, she took a few pictures of Kaiya and daddy...see how fun they are?

.tuesday funday: 25may10.

The new Tuesday Fundays!  Today's post is all about Kaiya and her newfound skills.  In recent weeks, Kaiya has been working on mastering her skill of putting things in her mouth...mainly SNACKS, which I believe is her favorite food.  (Yes, above all the delicious baby food we've been giving her!)  So lately, she's been trying to grab the snacks with her pointer finger and thumb...and shove the snack into her mouth.  She's actually pretty good at it...shoving the snack into her mouth, not the pointer finger/thumb grasp.  I'm sure she'll get that down in the next few weeks, though.  She's also perfected her growl (yes, I said growl...her and daddy love to growl at each other.  LOL!), sticks out her tongue (randomly, we don't ask her to do it), and loves to suck on her pointer finger...we think it's because she's getting her top teeth cause we can see the white starting to break through her gums.  She also has mastered crawling, and has started to pull herself up to a standing position.  She's pulled herself up a couple of times only to stand for a second or two, then fall on her butt (good thing for all her cushion!).  She thinks it's pretty funny.  She also cracks up when mommy laughs at her...not a real laugh, though, it has to be an exaggerated fake laugh.  

Anyway, here's some pictures that mommy took from today while she was hunting for snacks and eating them.  Only to get distracted and then she decided she was going to try and get mommy's camera.

Here she is shoving the snack container into the camera...she's crazy for snacks I'm telling you!
Oh, and this is her with her phone...probably calling daddy to growl at him!  :)

.kaiya loves photobooth.

Photobooth is a program on our Mac computer.  You can take silly photos, or you can take regular photos. But it displays right on the monitor what the picture will look like.  Well, Kaiya seems to think it's possibly one of the greatest inventions that she's come across.  She was all about smiling at the cute baby on the monitor with mommy!

.keiki ID cards.

We went to Kukui Grove on daddy's day off and there were cops everywhere!!  Luckily, it wasn't because of anything serious...there was some sort of Police Expo going on.  A nice lady cop (is that possible?  haha.) stopped us and informed us they were doing FREE keiki (child in Hawaiian) ID cards.  We like the word we decided to go and see what it was all about.  Turns out it's just a laminated card with the child's picture, contact information and fingerprints....nothing special, but we decided to do it anyway.  So Kaiya got her little fingerprints taken...but since they're so little the girl had a hard time taking them, so it looks like little smudges.  Kaiya seemed to think it was fun, though.  Check her out...

.eight months old.

Kaiya turned 8 months old on May 14!!!  It's been so fun to watch her grow the past 8 months, we can only imagine what it'll be like to continue to see her grow.  Every night, when she sleeps, we both look at her and can't believe how big she is getting.  You can see more and more of her personality everyday...while some minute she's doing the silliest things, the next she's crying for mommy.  Speaking of crying for mommy...have I mentioned that she's been saying "mamamamam".  Right...I know she's not really saying mama...but when she's crying and looking around for me and saying it, I can imagine she's calling me, right?

Anyway, we spent the morning at the beach since Kaiya LOVES it there.  She loves the sun, the sand, and the sea!  She was all laughs when daddy was helping her "swim".  Looks like someone has to take swimming lessons soon!  Maybe mommy should too!  haha.
Here's Kaiya just waking up from a power nap during the car ride over, which takes about 10-15 minutes.
The tide was really low when we first got there, so we decided to just play on the sand for a while.

Then daddy buried Kaiya in the sand...
...she didn't seem to mind.
And of course, she passed out on the ride home and slept in her carseat for a while after we got home.
When she woke up, she had an early bath and we headed over to Grandma Barbara and Papa Harry's for dinner.  And since we didn't take her sticker pictures yet, we took them over there.  Let me tell you, these pictures are getting harder and harder to take...especially since she's mobile.  So excuse the blurriness, it's because she WON'T. KEEP. STILL.  Happy 8 Month Birthday Baby!!!

.kaiya wears pigtails.

Kaiya's hair is getting to the point where we can finally put it up into a little ponytail...or in this case pigtails!!  She looks so cute in them too!
