it’s been so long since i’ve posted here.  life has been happening too fast for me to record anywhere but in my memory, which is rapidly fading.  i forgot what it’s like not to get solid sleep.  i’ve had plenty of short sleep nights but it is tough to readjust to an hour or two at a time.  kai has been pretty good about all this, but i’m sure his time will come.  i try to help out where i can, but sometimes alicia has to wake me up several times before i am conscious.

i took some shots in the hospital – tried to keep it clean and unobtrusive while at the same time being “there” in the moment for my daughter’s birth.  we have some favorite shots of kai when he first came out that we don’t show anyone else, but enjoy looking at privately to remember what a miracle his birth was.

let me just say that it is great to have family support at a time like this.  i don’t know how we would get by otherwise.  as we were warned, 1+1 is much more than 2 when it comes to kids.  i have greater respect for parents as time goes on and i experience the challenges of raising a growing family.

we love little kalena and will need to make sure she gets the same documentary photojourney her brother did.  thanks for all of your well wishes and advice.  lots of posting is going up on facebook so be sure to keep track there.

so instead of reading a bunch of books right now, i am asking for all your input/advice on changes, difficulties, and ways to make having 2 kids ‘easier’.  i have already heard a few ideas (buy a gift “from the baby” for the first child; trying to read to the older one while the baby naps), but i was wondering if there are more things that you’d advise on doing or not doing as our big day of change approaches.  i will probably tackle some books later, so if there are ones you recommend feel free to let me know.

mahalo and wish us luck!

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it."
