Today Ka'ihilei is 20 months old! I can't believe it! To me, 20 months is almost 2 years old and I just can't imagine having a 2 year old! We are loving life in California because we have Daddy around so much more! It is nice to have him around to play and help me out because 'Ihi has been on the run since we got here. She literally runs around til she crashes and it is fun but very exhausting so I'm glad we are able to share the work a little. Kahili is loving his new property but at times he gets bored cuz he was used to being the 'go-to' person at his last property and he doesn't have very many responsibilities here yet. 'Ihi and I have been enjoying the company of living with my family and the weather has been fabulous. We spend most of our days out in the backyard with Oreo (the family dog) playing in our little pool set up. Well, here's some 'Ihi updates from the past 2 months:
*Words: keys, mine, bowl, food, moon, and she tries to repeat other words that I say or ask her to repeat
*Names: She says Mommy, Daddy, Papa, Gigi, Dodo (Coco), Day (Daylene), Ena (Ka'ena), Lana, Bubba, Noa (Manoa), Tu (Ku), Tutu (Tuti), and Oreo
*She makes correct animal noises for: dog, cat, bird, cow, horse, and lion. We are still working on others.
*She loves music and singing. Her favorite songs right now are Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Patty Cake Patty Cake, Wheels on the Bus, The Itsy Bitsy Spider and Popcorn Popping
*Her hair is getting so long and I think the sun is bleaching it blonde a little.
*She is not afraid of any dogs. In fact, she loves them and would just run straight up to any dog on the street if we let her. We really have to watch her closely at the park because we don't want her to get bit when she sticks her face right in the dogs face, ha!
*Since moving to Cali, she has started walking backwards around the house sometimes and thinks she's pretty funny when she does it cuz we all laugh.
*Her smile and laugh are contagious. She is always making us laugh because she has such a great personality...until she gets tired HAHA!
