Happy 4th Birthday to the first boy I instantly fell in love with the moment he came into my life, my #KeolaFilemon
This past year, you've had to adjust to many changes. You're still trying to process it all, but I'm sure in due time... it'll all run smoothly. You're still keeping Daddy and me on our toes. But please, try to tone it down with your baby brother being around. You startle him with your loud talking. And be gentle. He's not ready to rough house with you just yet. Continue to be loving towards your Ate. Respect her, since she's the oldest and your only sister.
We love you, our little 12th man, our fighter, our Keola Bear!

Happy 30th Birthday to my other half! Welcome to your 30's! It's crazy to think we met right before you turned 22 and I was 25. 8 years have passed. You accomplished things that I wish I could've accomplished by 30, like buying a house and being done having kids . Now we can just enjoy watching them grow so we can take them out on adventures. Although you may be the biggest baby of my babies, the kids and I are so thankful to have you in our lives to guide us, support us, protect us, and most importantly... love us. cheers to 30, it's the new 20 🥂We you! 🏻🏻🏻🏻
Happy 9th Birthday, to my first born, the only Princess in our house, #KristelyeeElizabeth
I can't believe you're 9 years old today. It still feels like yesterday when you came into this world, I looked at you, held you in my arms, and instantly fell in love with you. 9 years ago, you gave me a new title in life, MOMMY. We've come a long way together as mother and daughter and it's exciting to watch you grow, although I wish you'd stay little forever. You're in your last year of single digits in age and next week you start 4th grade. I wish time would slow itself down, but I'm so thankful that you still give me hugs and kisses without me having to ask. Dad and I are so grateful that you help us with your brothers. Keola and Kainoa adore you more than you think. They miss you whenever you leave to go to your daddy's for the weekend. Like Dad and I told you, all we ask is that you be a good daughter and sister, set a good example to your brothers, and do well in school. We love you so much and can't wait to FaceTime you later on today to greet you

Today, I turned 2 months old. I'm mostly seen cooing, sleeping and eating. I love smiling and bath time. I dislike tummy time and loud noises. My favorite food is still breastmilk. I still love the Boppy. And today at my 2 month check up, I was measured at 23.5 inches tall and weighing in at 12lbs and 1oz. #KainoaDonovan

this filter. If only these Snapchat filters would give me eyelashes like these in real life, I would be happy!
When you're missing your baby girl, at least her stepmom is nice enough to text me some photos. Looks like #KristelyeeElizabeth is having a blast in #LakeChelan and getting #tanned. 1 more week until she comes home!
After a rough Wednesday with my boys, an even rough night. #KeolaFilemon didn't want to sleep in his bed, let alone his room. For some odd reason, he wanted to sleep in our walk-in closet last night. He finally knocked out at 11:15 and Kainoa was waiting for me to put him to bed too. 4 this morning, I felt a pillow being tossed at me. Keola woke up then woke Kainoa up. Couldn't get the boys to go back to sleep. They stayed up even after Don left for work this morning. We slept until almost 10 this morning and I'm still tired. Why must you give me a hard time??? #MommyNeedsSleepToo#GiveMommyABreak

#MotivationMonday This was me at 32 weeks pregnant doing my first WOD in 4 years. It felt so good and I wanted to go back. But when I started having contractions, it scared me since I wasn't ready for Kainoa to be born just yet.
I got the OK last week to workout again, I have ZERO excuses. Although I can fit back into my regular clothing and my bridesmaid's dress for my sister's wedding this October, I still want my flat tummy back along with my fit and toned legs and arms. Today is the day to be committed again. Let's do this! : @gargoyle_cf#PostpartumFitness#PostpartumJourney#Crossfit#GargoyleCrossfit#MommiesWhoCrossfit#MommyOf3
Mostly seen: Sleeping. Pooping after eating.
Loves: Mommy. Eating.
Dislikes: Being bullied by Kuya Keola. The car seat.
Favorite Foods: Breastmilk.
Favorite Things: The Boppy when nursing.
Hi, my name is #KainoaDonovan. I'm #2weeksold. I like to eat, poop and sleep (in that order). When I can, I like resting my head between Mommy's boobs and I fall asleep. I tend to spit up on Daddy the most and I fart just as much as he does. My Ate Kristelyee helps Mommy take care of me but also tries to make me hold her toys. And I hate when my Kuya Keola constantly kisses me all over my face and steals my bassinet.
Today, my two nieces graduate as Class of 2017 from high school. It's crazy to think we've been in each other's lives since 2001 when they were just 2 years old and still in diapers. Here they are now; teenagers, young women, both moving onto bigger and better things. 🏽Katelann, who's taking a 🏽♀️golf scholarship from WWU. 🏻Jeralee, who'll be going to UW-Tacoma and finishing up in 2 years since she did running start. I couldn't be more proud of these two with all their accomplishments and what still lies ahead. I love you both very very much

It's been too long since @_dproject has gotten me anything without me knowing about it. Was definitely surprised on Saturday when he came home from picking up last minute items for our baby shower. He ran up the stairs to our bedroom and gave me this bouquet of red roses. (Don's only given me flowers 3 times that I can remember in the 7.5 years we've been together.) But that wasn't it. After family left the baby shower and it was mainly our @legacy_ohana and @urbnpanda families, another surprise. Fruit cheesecake from 85c Bakery that Don had @tedwardo__ pick up, since I was getting suspicious as to why he had to go to Tukwila so early in the morning. Was definitely surprised he managed to keep this a secret from me. Thank you, Babe! I love you!
Thank you to everyone that celebrated my 33rd birthday with me during our 🏻baby shower. Thank you to my sister @kimmyyee and my soon-to-be brother-in-law @jannsenm for putting the shower together. The very few family members that showed up. Our close friends, our car family Legacy Ohana, and the clothing/modeling family Urbn Panda. I love you all. Now the waiting begins...
