What more can we say besides Leif is just a wonderful boy. We have been able to make it back to the beach again and he simply loves exploring the sand, trees, and even enjoys being in the water. He especially enjoys splashing the water in his buckets and crawling in the sand. He has always like being outdoors and this is becoming more evident as he laughs, smiles, and squeals when we go to the beach!
I love the beach!!
Maybe the other toy will taste better.
Yup! It sure does!
OOO! I want that , too.
It's not hard to get overhead waves when you are only 29 inches tall.
Sweet, I found the ball.
Mom...where does sand come from?
These margaritas are great!
Oh do I have an idea!!
We have been having a lot of fun taking Leif to parks as well. If there are big kids there it is even better for him. He loves to follow all the older kids around the playground though he often becomes a little shy if one of them stops to talk to him.
I like going for walks with my dad.
I should have paid for the upgrade to first class.
Supporting Dad's home team even though they get their butts kicked.
Amanda and I thought Leif would be walking by Thanksgiving but as the days approached he just didn't seem ready to. Low and behold, to our surprise one night when he decided to just let go of the furniture and toddle, wobble, and sway to the other side. Since then he prefers to walk over crawling and is so incredibly fast. One minute he is in the other room and the next he is right next to you.
Finally, Thanksgiving was a real treat. We started Thanksgiving's Eve at the Kauiho's (Uncle Kimo, Auntie Tasha, and cousins Dylan and Elijah) watching them cook prepare their great big Imu (traditional Hawaiian oven) to cook the turkeys in (about a dozen or so people came by to drop some off). The imu is big enough to cook a 400 pound pig! On Thanksgiving day we went to the Putegnat's to eat lots of potatoes and stuffing. Leif loved his Mom's stuffing the best.
That is one big imu!
I love my Mom's stuffing!
WOW! Smashed potatoes!
We can't wait to see all of you and hope that it is sooner than latter.
aloha and a hui ho
Cory, Amanda, and Leif
