Funny Baby

Tenzin is taking his nap, I should be too.... I haven't been sleeping much, and I do whatever I can at night to keep Tenzin quiet so that Tai can sleep (which means NOT putting Tenzin in his cot where he will scream.) So many people are telling me to let him "cry it out" and he'll learn to sleep by himself. That isn't working for us. One father said, I know you don't want to hear your baby cry, but if you don't get sleep you can't be the best parent the next day. It's very true.
I am hoping his night restlessness is just associated with his last front tooth, which has kept him up the the past.
My brother Mick is arriving today, to stay. Now Tenzin will have his auntie and uncle here. Mick's excited, it will be his first time to Hawaii, his first time in the tropics, and actually his first time anywhere. He's going to love it! We're off soon to throw him a welcome party at the beach, I made pineapple shrimp cabobs. Should be fun.
Here's some pics of Tenzin being his funny self!

Getting ready for Christmas

Well, it's that time again. But for Tenzin it's the first time! We are SO happy that we'll be going to Canada for Tenzin's first Christmas, so he can play in the snow! I'm a little concerned about the clothes issue though.... He doesn't like to put on a t-shirt, I wonder how he'll do with a few layers and and snowsuit, and mittens, and a hat.... He won't really have time to get used to the cold either.
Even though I don't like all of the manditory holiday related consumerism, I just really like giving people gifts!! I'm getting all my packages that need to be sent together, and really love to do it. I think I'm going to get Tai a surfboard for Christmas since I guy we know is moving back to Australia and selling one.
Tenzin and I have been taking care of another baby 16 hrs. a week. His name is Xavier and he's 2 months old. It's starting to go a little better, and Tenzin is getting used to having him around. Having two little ones is quite the job, but sometimes they both sleep too.
Lately Tenzin has been waking up at 5 am, so I am feeling pretty tired by 8 at night.
Well, I guess I'm off to bed.

Favorite Things

Tenzin's new favorte things are:
standing, and learning new falling techniques
green beans and brown rice
going on the baby swing at the park
waking up in the middle of the night just to see what's going on....
talking on the phone
saying "boppa" (or pappa we think) He got Mamma down so it's time to work on pappa.

I like to call him a rascalfarian, because he is that for sure.
I hope we can sleep tonight ;)

Blog for me Mamma

I never liked Blogs, who reads other peoples blogs...? I guess after having a baby I do a lot of things I never fancied before. Here's two pictures Pappa took without us knowing! We both fell asleep after a painful teething session, the other we were about to take a family photo and pappa was setting up the tripod. sneaky.
I figured I had better get writing, everything is happening SO FAST for Tenzin right now. He started crawling, then he started crawling super speed, and he's now standing up- all within two weeks!!! My little unscathed dumpling is now bumping his head and eating poisonous plants. Tai said the other day "remember when he would just lay there?"
Tenzin, you are amazing. There is nothing better. For You I will do anything, even blog.
