Robyn is my hero, she suffered for about 3 hours with no breaks or rest, then at 3.49 am Troy was born. She is absolutely awesome! I really cant put it into words how grand childbirth is. I love you Robyn. Welcome to the world Troy! Congrats on being a big sister Melia!
Born November 26
Weight: 7lbs 9oz

OK so we want everyone to guess when Troy will be here!! And what does that have to do with these pics of the Hilton Village at Waikiki?? Well if you get it right we will put you up there for one night...totally on us! Sorry airfare not included but for some of you who are coming to visit this would be pretty cool! And if you get it right we will send you a sweet t-shirt if you aren't coming to Hawaii anytime in the near future. So Dan is guessing Dec 5th and I am stuck b/t the 2nd and 3rd of Dec so I will say the 3rd! I want that night in the hotel too!! Work with me, Troy! Oh and for those who don't know my actual due date is Dec 1st.

Melia does everything Robyn does. They shower the same...that is right, Melia prefers to shower than to bath... She dries off the same at the beach, puts lotion on the same, eats all the same stuff (egg whites, oatmeal, turkey burgs, sweet potats) Melia is always active and wakes up at about 6:30-7 every morning ready to go, just like her mommy. She also has her mommy's dark brown skin and blonde hair, very unlike my pink pale skin.
Thanks Robyn for all you do!!!
I can't wait for our son to be born this next month sometime. I have been anticipating this day and looking forward to the trip to the hospital for months now. Melia's birth was so exciting and amazing, that I am really stoked to get that call from Robyn, or the wakeup slap in the middle of the night and here that its time to go to the hospital!!! I want to be a good coach to you Robyn and I promise to try to help as much as I can!
Robyn you are awesome! I am proud that you want to have our son naturally, you will do awesome!!!

It's Saturday afternoon and I am just hanging out while Melia sleeps. My friend from church is having a baby shower for me at her house in a little while so that should be fun although I am a little nervous about it. THe last time someone from church threw a shower for me was in Pahoa and I didn't know everyone's name that came. In fast I don't think I remembered anyone's name at all. So when I would open a present and read the card I would look around the room and thank everyone pretty much b/c I didn't know who to make eye contact with. So I finally just told people to raise their hands when I read their name. Nice, Robyn. So maybe today I can just bring the gifts home and open them at my house?? So I had bought these cute little ducky slippers for Melia awhile ago but she refused to try them on until Granddad was here and he asked her to put them on and of course she did. Now she loves them and wears them all the time...even to do yard work.
This is how I find her lately. I will come downstairs to find little Melia naked. This happens quite often during the day. She will take her diaper off and clothes if she has them on and just want to be naked. When she pees she will come up to me and say Pee pee Mommy and point to her diaper. But when it is poopy she will just start walking up the stairs to get another diaper and start taking it off. I have to be careful on that one as I was on the phone and I looked out in the living room and saw her naked but her bum was all brown and her blanket was sticking between her cheeks b/c she had sat on it and it was stuck!! Gross!! But I will give her credit. She had brought some wipes downstairs and wiped herself as best as she could. Thanks for trying to help out!
