Laine did a short clip of some footage he had before Kai was born! I wanted to share...
My moms camera had tons of great pictures from her visit when Kai was born. Yes, it was a month ago already, but they are such great memories, I have to share!!

One last goodbye to Aunt Sheryl. So glad they got to meet Kai before heading home!
My crazy boy at the play area! Working on his ninja/superhero moves!
I know, so many pictures!! But all the more fun to look at my precious family! How blessed we are with so much wonderful people in our lives to pray for us and support us! Now, our family has grown from three to four and a new journey has begun!
How you have filled my heart with so much love, beyond what I thought was possible! Thank you, God, for our precious boys and surrounding family. I pray that we will continue to be good servants with what you have blessed us with and that we will be honoring and glorifying your name through these things!
These are pretty outdated since I haven't been pregnant for over 3 weeks! HA! But, Laine just finished editing them and they turned out really great! We went to a park in north west LA (Malibu) area called Paramount Ranch Park. It's so cool!! It's a mini "wild west" town with trails all around. It actually is the set for many movies and shows including Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman! Anyway, we hung out for a little while and got some shots! Enjoy!
Did you know that I have been completely drained of energy, therefor no family blogging updates? Did you know that LA has had the hottest September in history last week? Did you know that being 9 months pregnant during a record breaking heat wave is misery? Of course you didn't know these things because I haven't done an update in forever!!!
Not too much to update on, really. So maybe that's why I haven't been very inspired on blogging. Here are some random things throughout the last couple months...
We had a fun little joint baby shower with some great friends, the Liu's, from church! They recently delivered their fourth child, and first daughter!! Very exciting! It was a fun shower with lots of fun for the kids and family!! OH and amazing food!!!
My parents came for Labor Day weekend and brought our niece, Amia!! It was so much fun to see the kids bonding! We had a great time together!!
And one more cute one just because he's just so squeezable!!
Hoping to get some more updates in soon!! And stay regular again!!
Last week we got to spend a day at the San Diego Zoo with Grandma Faye from Hawaii!! We had a great time!!
Panda viewing! They only had a couple pandas, but they were so close! Keane loved them!!
Then we ended our visit together with a yummy dinner! We LOVE Grandma Faye!!
We had our 3D ultrasound appointment and loved the outcome! It makes him seem like he's right there! We can't wait to actually squeeze our new baby! He's so active in there. And healthy as well.
I'm 26 weeks now and everything is just flying by! Can't believe I'm going into my third trimester already! I remember it being all down hill from there, so we have a lot to do to prepare!!
God Bless you friends and family!
Last week was Keane's first VBS experience. Although it was mostly cause I was leading parts of it, he got to hang out with the older kids! But he loved it and loved being with the older kids! We learned new songs, scripture, did a few activities including tie dying shirts!!! I made a little clip with the song performances at the end. So cute!!
We did a little prep for Father's Day with a painting project at home and learning a fun Father's Day song to preform at church!
The sunday school classes all did a little something for Father's day at church this Sunday. So cute to see the little ones up there!!
We had a very fun week!
Pregnancy update... I am now 24 weeks! Can't believe how fast time is going by with this one! I am learning to balance both rest and preparing for new baby, plus doing my other responsibilities! Thank God for my sweet husband who is so patient and understanding! He helps so much! And Keane is growing so much! How blessed am I?!?
Please keep me and baby in your prayers for a safe and healthy pregnancy!
Happy belated Mother's Day! We had a quiet mother's day. Went to church where Keane performed his first Mother's Day performance! SO SWEET!!!
If you can believe it, Keane finally has had a haircut!! Oh-MY-GOODNESS!!! He's so handsome!!!
Last week was one of the hottest weeks here in LA in a long time!! For some reason, Keane has been into the Peanuts Christmas movie! He brings it to me asking, "Thnowman?" SO cute!! Makes me miss winter, for sure! But we've been keeping cool by visiting the pool and beach time!!
We had our 2nd semester appointment for baby this last week and everything seems to be fine so far! We are waiting for our ultrasound coming up this week to hopefully reveal the gender and to be sure baby is growing well!! Please keep us in your prayers!!
Until next time!
I have to say, I am sincerely surprised to have so many faithful followers on this website! Sadly, there's hasn't been a blog update in over 2 months, but you still come back to check on us! THANK YOU!!! Any given day we can have as little as 10 to as many as 200 views! And I thought our little lives were so boring! HA! I must be wrong!
Well, the big question is, "What have we been doing?" NOTHING!! I've been a sick mama with persistent morning sickness all day and night for the past couple months. My poor family has been sitting on the sidelines waiting through it so we can get moving on with our normal life. Finally at 16 weeks now, I can say, I haven't been nauseous or sick in 2 weeks!! The biggest hiccup in this pregnancy was an uninvited wisdom tooth that gave me, well, HELL!!! It caused severe swelling to the point I couldn't open my mouth. It was so painful, but no dentist would touch me till after my 2nd trimester! So I waited with the pain and frustration for 2 weeks before it was removed. Praise the Lord, it has been removed and everything has gone down and back to normal!!
Keane did come down with a little flu bug a couple weeks ago, but we made it through with tylenol and candy to wash it down!
And Keane did find fun little ways to keep himself entertained while I was sick... like a new hobby of barricading himself with the couch cushions and pillows.
Can't believe how fast Easter came and went already! We had a quiet and humble Easter. This was the first year Keane actually cared about Easter eggs and candy and the toys in the basket. He's actually never met an "Easter Bunny" since I'm not too huge on it myself, but, there's a huge pink bunny in someone's front yard we pass everyday to go to the church and he gets so excited every time he sees it!! lol it's pretty funny, actually! He's like, "BUNNY!!!" Anyway, here's Keane Easter morning with his little basket of goodies.
I do have so much more to share and I have to work on getting my next couple entries all organized and ready for you. Hope this will hold everyone over for a little while!
This is Laine, Jessica, Keane Kai and Chia's blog. We love sharing some great moments with our close friends and family. love, love ~
