It has been a good first week in the 6-person Brown compound.  Cana has her days and nights a bit confused.  She tended to wake up around 10:00 pm even while she was in the womb and the fresh air hasn’t changed her routine.  We are simply going to move to Hawaii where the timezone is more conducive to her sleeping habits.  Her first trip yesterday was to Wendy’s for lunch then to the new Super Wal-Mart in town.  It is the small town, modern day equivalent of the Old Testament sacrificial system.

Isaac and Grace (who turn 5 years old today) enjoy Cana.  For Grace, it doesn’t get any better than holding Cana while some kidshows are on the television.  Eden also likes having Cana around.  She is mostly concerned when Cana’s binky falls out and does her level best to return it forcefully back into Cana’s mouth.  We’re still working on the, “Easy, Eden, easy“.  Unfortunately, love hurts sometimes.

Hope is feeling well but could use a nap at any moment.  If Cana’s timezone confusion wasn’t enough, we’re also battling nighttime bad dreams for the other kids. 

I returned to work today and only had 5 voicemails but 200 e-mails.  I really, really like my work but it was nice to be home with the fam for a few days.  Tonight I am hoping to plant some tulip, daffodil and crocus bulbs in the front flower beds with Grace’s help.

  1. Good luck with the timezone issue!  I bet Gracie and Eden love Cana.  Hopefully the nightime bad dreams go away soon!

  2. Well, you’re always welcome in Hilo :)Hopefully she can adjust to the time soon!

  3. Is there a new Super Wal-Mart in Hilo?

  4. thanks for the update.  i dont know if this will help at all, but we were dealing with the bad dream thing and the doctor said it could help if you limit their tv time before bed.  i guess it gets the brain in an overstimulated state from all the lights or something like that.  I guess two hours is a recommended resting time without tv before bed.  that kindof threw off our routine for a little while, because we used to unwind to a movie b4 bed.  i dont know if that will help at all, a lot of changes cause lighter sleep which causes the kids to wake up during the dream rpm or whatever.  Well enough of dr. kim…

  5. hey jesse, let me know when you sort through that stack of 200 emails i’ve got one to send you. have fun on your move to hawaii!

  6. Wow … I know it’s simple math, but  I never put 2 and 2 together (and 2 more) to realize that you have SIX in your house.  I’m sure it’s wonderful … but I couldn’t imagine.
    There is an end to the sleepless nights (as long as you’re not planning on having 10 more children).
    All of our best to you and the fam!

  7. Congrats on the addition!  She’s beautiful.  Good luck balancing the testosterone to estrogen levels in the house.
