Asa and Alice

So they say not to compare your kids and Janet always yells at me if I tell Asa "why can't you behave like your sister" But I cant help it, its amazing how different they already are but the same also so this next blog will be all about their difference and alikeness. Asa was sitting up unassisted and not falling over 3 days after he turned for months. I remember this so clearly because it was 2 days after we left Hawaii and I was disappointed that Tutu and Tutuman didnt get to see. Alice is still working on it but basically has it down at four and a half months. Asa started eating mush at 3 months exactly and eat it for dinner and breakfast everyday along with breast feeding clear till 10 months. He ate mush at least once a meal everyday till he was a year old. He tried to eat babyfood but he hated the meat and Kapono ate the fruit. Alice Loves babyfood except the meat of course, who could like that..gross, she eats it nearly 3 times a day. Asa has basically never slept through the night off and on when he was little little he would get in a pattern and sleep about 4 days out of 7 but then we would take a trip or he wouldnt go to bed at bed time and he would inevitably end up in our bed. He still to this day makes his way to Kapono's side of the bed to join us about 2 am everyday. Alice on the other hand sleeps through the night about 6 out of 7 nights and stays asleep anywhere from 7:30-10:30. When she falls asleep I am able to put her in her crib and walk away. I dont worry that she'll wake up becuase she puts herself back to sleep. Asa has to be held in cradle position on the couch by kapono with the tv on we have to keep him like that till his thumb falls out of his mouth and then its safe to move him, otherwise we get to start the whole thing again. Alice found her thumb when she was a couple days old and has enjoyed it ever since, Asa didnt find it till 6 months and gave himself so nasty looking sores from sucking to hard.Asa could reach for and grab things with his index finger and thumb and 3 months, I never worried about him putting something in his mouth because to this day if he eats something he tells me about it. Alice has no desire to pick something off the ground she is only interested in it if it looks like it will fit in her mouth and gets very upset if it doesnt make it there soon. Asa shed twice when he was a newborn it was basically disgusting. Alice didnt shed at all. Nick my brother in law was saying that smelly lotions and oils cause shedding this might be true because with Asa we lotioned and oiled him everyday and with Alice I sort of forgot to. Alice talks all the time, and she needs to be the center of attention. If she is in a crowd of people and we dont speak to her she will get upset and return all the focus to her. Asa talks all the time too however he didnt start talking till her was closer to 9 months. Asa being older understand a great deal however he only chooses to listen when it benefits him.
