Happy One Week Baby Olivia!

Oh Olivia,

You are the cutest sweetest little baby! You’re a great eater and a great sleeper. Your cord fell off on Monday night (6days) and you got your first bath real yesterday (7days)

Mommy took some pictures for your birth announcement and here are a few from our photo shoot. Lol. Your first of many I’m sure :)

From your FIRST bath! You’re already growing up to fast!

Happy Father’s Day 2018

This year Sophia planned a super special surprise “party” for Daniel for Father’s Day. 😂 Complete with cards, gifts, and fancy brunch on the lanai. 

She spent the last couple of days making things. In the meantime she put up this sign so Daniel wouldn’t ruin the surprise. Haha! Creative little lady!

They hid in their closet and yelled “SURPRISE” when I made him walk in This morning. ❤️

Olivia slept through everything. 🙂 She’s the sweetest little thing!

We had a lot going on this year, but the kids helped me pick some new sunglasses for their Daddy because his always seem to be in the wrong vehicle.

Michael and Sophia made trophies and ribbons in keiki art class last weekend.

The kids helped set the table and we had fancy brunch with omlettes made from all the odds and ends in the fridge, and toast and tea and coffee.

On the lanai, because it’s been a billion degrees inside lately.

Ethan was not about to be left out of the action and DEMANDED his own espresso cup full of milk with a splash of tea- or “kid coffee” as they like to call it.

That was all the pictures I took. Daniel and the kids spent the rest of the day in the pool and fishing at the wharf. I spent the rest of the day nursing and snuggling Olivia.

And my mom made Daniel his favorite “Pudding Cake” for dessert.
