Almost Finished

Kai Quaker Lake Summer 2007 137

UPDATE: We made it back, and everyone is doing well. Still doing some Jet-lag adjusting, but things are good here in Japan. Also I added a new slideshow (mostly just Kai playing out in the back yard), and finally got those pictures of Kai Standing up. Just took another couple shots today of him up and on his feet for real, which seems to be the new cool thing for babies turning 9months old. I think we are going to see babysteps within 2 weeks. I guess we just have to wait and see, but the walking is definitely going to be soon, Kai can not wait any longer.

Well, we are just about ready to get up outta here, but it has been a lot of fun seeing everyone. We only have a few days left, as we will be leaving this Saturday the 11th (come take your goodbye pictures, and kiss Kai one more time before he returns with a girlfriend and a tattoo).

There were a few things we ended up doing while we were here, in order from semi-good, to semi-ridiculous: a trip to Atlantic City (Dad only, no physical evidence of us being there recorded, a.k.a. pictures/messes), eating pulled pork sandwiches, the parties, the swims in the lake, the baptism, and Kai standing all by himself for 20 FULL SECONDS.

Milestone: Kai Eats Rice

The Milestones have been updated.  First of all, Wednesday the 18th was his 5 month birthday, so a big shout out to Kai.  Following in the Big Boy theme, he tried his first bowl of rice cereal today and absolutely loved it.  We are hoping he will eat this more often and end up sleeping long at night.  So far, that’s a no go.  We think it is probably because he is used to waking up every three hours at night, but the good news is he doesn’t really need to feed all the time through the night.  The rice cereal really fills him up and that is the most important thing.

You should have seen him eating this stuff; he absolutely loved it.  I tried a little bit and basically it tastes like grits.  I guess if your from the south that sounds appetizing, but to me and Aya it wasn’t that great.  Kai on the other hand couldn’t get enough of it and he ate almost a full baby’s bowl worth.  So from now on we are going to be feeding him the rice ceral right before bed time, in order to ensure better sleeping hours.  Continue reading
