years together and years of marriage... Happy Anniversary to US! 8 years ago, we made it official as dating. 4 years ago, we made it official on paper by getting married. 3 years ago, we took this picture renewing our vows in front of our families and close friends in Hawaii or who traveled with us. And a year ago today, we found out we were expecting our last bundle of joy, Kainoa Donovan to complete our family. This date is special, because when you turn 11-8 sideways, it looks like = infinity (damn there’s no infinity emoji or symbol in the keyboard). I love you! And many many more years to come...
Today I turned 4 months old. I’m currently wearing a 9 month size onesie. I’m mostly seen trying to pull myself up with assistance from Mommy, Daddy or Ate. I love cooing, smiling and laughing. I dislike being too bundled up, because it makes me hot and sweaty. Since I drank up Mommy’s frozen supply of breastmilk and she has since gone back to work, Mommy dried up so I’m only drinking formula now. I go in for my 4 month well check on Friday, so that’s when I’ll find out how tall I am and how heavy I’ve gotten. #KainoaDonovan
Tomorrow I get to stand at the altar watching you walk down the aisle. I’ll be at your side as you exchange vows and rings with Jannsen. My only sibling will be going from Miss to Mrs. tomorrow and I’ll finally gain a brother. 10+ years in the making, 2+ years engaged and the big day has finally arrived... #itsMARZANtime I love you and tomorrow nothing else will matter! #Seesters#MySeesterIsGettingMarried
Happy 4th Birthday to the first boy I instantly fell in love with the moment he came into my life, my #KeolaFilemon
This past year, you've had to adjust to many changes. You're still trying to process it all, but I'm sure in due time... it'll all run smoothly. You're still keeping Daddy and me on our toes. But please, try to tone it down with your baby brother being around. You startle him with your loud talking. And be gentle. He's not ready to rough house with you just yet. Continue to be loving towards your Ate. Respect her, since she's the oldest and your only sister.
We love you, our little 12th man, our fighter, our Keola Bear!
Happy 30th Birthday to my other half! Welcome to your 30's! It's crazy to think we met right before you turned 22 and I was 25. 8 years have passed. You accomplished things that I wish I could've accomplished by 30, like buying a house and being done having kids . Now we can just enjoy watching them grow so we can take them out on adventures. Although you may be the biggest baby of my babies, the kids and I are so thankful to have you in our lives to guide us, support us, protect us, and most importantly... love us. cheers to 30, it's the new 20 We you!
Happy 9th Birthday, to my first born, the only Princess in our house, #KristelyeeElizabeth
I can't believe you're 9 years old today. It still feels like yesterday when you came into this world, I looked at you, held you in my arms, and instantly fell in love with you. 9 years ago, you gave me a new title in life, MOMMY. We've come a long way together as mother and daughter and it's exciting to watch you grow, although I wish you'd stay little forever. You're in your last year of single digits in age and next week you start 4th grade. I wish time would slow itself down, but I'm so thankful that you still give me hugs and kisses without me having to ask. Dad and I are so grateful that you help us with your brothers. Keola and Kainoa adore you more than you think. They miss you whenever you leave to go to your daddy's for the weekend. Like Dad and I told you, all we ask is that you be a good daughter and sister, set a good example to your brothers, and do well in school. We love you so much and can't wait to FaceTime you later on today to greet you
Today, I turned 2 months old. I'm mostly seen cooing, sleeping and eating. I love smiling and bath time. I dislike tummy time and loud noises. My favorite food is still breastmilk. I still love the Boppy. And today at my 2 month check up, I was measured at 23.5 inches tall and weighing in at 12lbs and 1oz. #KainoaDonovan
