Good Times

to the Library

since E.G. and I are mobile now, and the weather is cooling off (a little) we started going back to the library!!  This time we met a friend of mine there.

I planned to listen to storytime there, but N. found the cars to be a bit more entertaining. And E.G. just slept. IMG_2873

After saying “bye” to my friend we had a quick snack then head back home on the bus.

Good times!!

Dinner time!!

E.G. loves to be held! Put her down and five minutes later you will regret it. but if you keep holding her your arms and upper back will regret it….

anyway, it was dinner time in the Ashida house and just as were sitting to eat E.G. started to “sing!” N. offered to hold her.  but apparently she’s “too heavy. ” so dad took over.IMG_2857

but E.G. just kept on singin!!! Till she had her own dinner. then she konked out.

not Goodbye

boy does time fly!! it’s already been a week and a half since Sobou left Japan and returned to the states.

we had a good time while she was here. we “rode the premium wind” Shimakaze train, went to the beach, E.G.was born, had a library Day, an aquarium day, got rained on during a local festival, watched hula dancing at said festival, watched E.G. get a blessing at church, ate wonderful food cooked by our church family, relaxed at home, had daily photo shoots with the kids…

what a great month it was!!  thank you for flying over the ocean to see us!! come visit us again!! love you bunches Sobou!!!IMG_2801

just, see you again!!

Fun Day 2 of 2

Fun Day 1 of 2

the calm

Elijah is a good sleeper during the day. she  wakes up to eat and get her diaper changed. that’s about it.

but I realized that is just until big brother gets home!! then she can’t keep her eyes closed! and even when she looks tired she fights it to stay awake!!IMG_2515

she already knows, life is more exciting with big brother around!!

MCS

my current situation. (do people use that?). well, anyway. I’m back on the blog!

i’m also back at home from the hospital! I went in on July 16th to prep for my c-section. and on July 17th at 1:35pm Elijah Grace Ashida was brought into the world!!

and so life with 2 children begins!! breastfeeding one and helping get the other ready for school. breastfeeding one and playing with the other. hoping one will stay sleep just a little longer and helping the other get ready for bedtime.

then, mcs; one sleeping at my head, the other at my feet, and me on the edge of the bed trying not to fall off. IMG_2452

but i am thankful for every second of it and know ALL my blessings come from my Father in heaven.
