Happy Birthday Son!

It was Baby Pona's bday on Nov. 7th. Can't believe my little guy is 1!!! We cancelled his party because I got the stomach flu the day before his bday. I was so sad. Gma and Gpa still came up though. That was nice. We went to eat at his favorite pizza, pasta, and salad buffet, but he didn't seem to like it that much that day. Silly boy. Then we opened presents and he was too tired for cake. He had cake the next day. He didn't feed himself any of it. He just loved making a mess. I fed him a few bites and he liked it I think. Then we just threw him in the sink. That was his first time in the sink. It was pretty cute.

Halloween. This was at our ward's trunk r treat. Baby was Annikun. I was a Stirling High School Cheerleader.
I couldn't believe it. Pona carried all of these groceries up a flight of stairs in one trip! It was amazing. I really didn't think that was possible.


Little Pona always gets in the way of everything we do. Here he is helping with the dishes, vacuuming and laundry. He usually follows the vacuum all around the house. He loves it.

baby's first byu game

Gpa Pona always comes up for the first game of the season. We also always sit with Derick and Regan. There's cute little Regan. We were so excited to take baby Pona to his first game. And then it was a horrible horrible game. We also realized it's not so fun with a busy baby. He hasn't been to another one.

Aunty Lata comes to visit a lot because she flies for free. We love having her visit. She's so so so cute. We're so sad she can't fly for free anymore. We'll miss her.
Just too attractive.


Most of the time our little boy is very cute and sweet, but sometimes he is a devil child. And usually, we love that about him. Exhibit a of the sweet little guy and directly below, exhibit b of the devil child who tries to burn our house down.
Little Pona loves hiding things. Well, we started smelling burning plastic. We quickly went to our heaters. Our house is heated with electric heaters on the bottom of the walls. We were sure he'd put something in the heater, but we couldn't find anything? So finally big p took the thing apart and found it. The little guy put a marker in the heater. That's the mangled blue thing. Since then, we have found big P's phone and and a medicine dropper in the heater. Little Pona likes to help his dad try and fix things too. Or maybe he's just trying to look cute because he was caught trying to burn our house down. This should be a fun winter!!!

Hello All!

Baby Pona is growing up. He's almost one. Can't believe it. He's been doing some really funny things lately. Pona was changing his diaper and as soon as the diaper was pulled off, baby Pona who I will refer to as P3, crawled away super quick. He stood up next to the chair and proceeded to pee while standing. What the heck?

He lately loves putting his little toys in the craziest spots. We 'll find his toys inside the kitchen garbage bag box. Under all the walmart bags in the bag drawer. Behind frames. He loves hiding his little toys and then the next day he'll go back and get them out. Pona watched P3 do it finally. He saw him pick up 2 of my hair ties. He crawled into our room, opened his little drawer and put the hair ties in the corner of the drawer. Then he closed the drawer and left. Pona watched him do it again. He grabbed a little toy crawled into the room again. Opened his drawer, but just before he put his toy in, he noticed his dad watching him. So, he closed the drawer without putting the toy in and left.

Whenever I find one of his little hidden treasures I just laugh. It is so funny where we are finding things. He actually hid Pona's keys too. Ha ha! That's not funny when you're running late. We are having so much fun with our little guy. He loves animals too. Whenever he sees dogs or cats he laughs and laughs. Sometimes he tries to bark like a dog. Well, anywho, the time I allotted myself on the internet is up.

Random Sitake Stuff

Baby Pona is 10 months now. Hard to believe. He's almost 1. We have so much fun with him. I think big Pona plays with him more than any dad I know. It's quite cute.
College football has begun!!! We had a kick off party at our house the first night of college ball. So far, BYU is doing awesome! We love it. Go BYU!!!
Little Pona is crawling all over and getting into everything. He starting crawling a month ago. He just loves terrorizing our house. Here you see he's ripped up the Book Of Mormon and the Ensigns and dumped all the dots from the hole punch on the ground. Having so much fun. Now we have put those baby things on the door so he can't open them. So now, he pulls so hard on the door we think he's going to break the plastic thing off!
In August, all of us kids and our families went to our parents in Idaho for a week. It was great to all be togher. The little boys are taking a bath together. Cute cousins.
We all went to beautiful Jackson Hole and went camping.
Baby Pona's first family camping trip.
In Yellowstone we had a picnic and let baby Pona play in the dirt. He was having so much fun and getting so dirty. The bathroom there had a really big sink. We just stripped him down and stuck him in the sink. He looks embaressed to be naked in a national park.

Just looking so cute. Gma Donna gave him this church outfit. It's for 24 months. It fits him perfectly except for the height because he's so chubby. I just sewed the bottom of the pants up 3 inches. He's usually grumpy after church. Missing that nap is just super fun every Sunday.
My boy. I love him. Excuse my cheesy smile.

Pow Wow

This video is for anyone who wishes to see it, but is meant mostly for Gma Donna. The boys loves to sing and drum. Since you guys haven't been here to teach him to pow wow. We're trying. He may be white in color, but Native in blood. Well, at least that's what he said after the video. It's too bad we turned the camera off right before his first sentence.

summer time

Yet another attempt to make baby Pona eat. He finally started eating a few days ago. We are so so happy! Weird little kid? I didn't know if he'd ever eat? It took him 9 months to decide food was good. I thought I'd have to send breast milk with him to kindergarten. Thank heavens I won't.
Poor little Elisia. Pona was attacking her. She looks terrified. Hopefully they'll be friends someday. Cute cousin picture.
Me and the babe went to Tennessee to visit Lish and Paul and the kids. We went to a beautiful park called Cheekwood.

Random Shots

My little Ponas are best friends. When baby Pona sees his dad walk in, he knows it's play time. Once Pona came in and baby started jumping and looking his cutest because he knew his dad wouldn't be able to resist him. When Pona walked by, baby looked so depressed, and started crying. They are like 2 peas in a pod.
Once, when I was vaccuuming I put baby in this basket. He got pretty bored. He just watched the vaccuum and kind of zoned out.
Whenever Pona is on the computer he sits baby on the desk with him. This is a common sight to see when I walk in our room. I think they're so sweet together. Once Pona was putting baby to bed, but he didn't come out for like 40 min. So I went in the room and saw them like this in the dark watching Wall-E on the computer.

Sleepy Time

This is for you Lish. So, me and my sis were on the phone and she could hear baby Pona start to fuss. So, we got off the phone so I could put him to bed. This was him a couple minutes after he was fussing. He always gets hyper when he's tired. After he gets past the fussy stage, he gets a little slap happy. He always thinks the bottle is funny when he's slap happy. He just laughs and laughs. Then in usually about 5 minutes, he's asleep. I love him! Welp, lovely chatting with you Lish!

Pona and Lata graduated! Yipee! We had a big Tongan party that night to celebrate. Their cousin Tonga graduated too. His Auntie made so so so much food. I could not believe it. It was unbelievable. So good! Good to see friends and family. I made baby Pona a gown too to match Dad's, but I don't have a sewing machine so I hand sewed it. What was I thinking? Actually it didn't take that long. I made it too small, it barely fit. He looked cute in his cap and gown though. I'm proud of my husband and Lata. Yay!

Lately, baby Pona spits like crazy. It's pretty funny. He also loves his exersaucer from his cousin Talitha. I like when I tell him to be happy and he does, at least for a min. So, this is us chillin Easter evening. I told him he wasn't going to get anything for Easter cuz he wouldn't remember it. I think he's ok with that. Welp, he has to be!

Girlfriend already?

Sara had her little Charlie 6 weeks after we had little Pona. She was 12 lbs. at birth!!!!! But, good thing our kid is older so he can be big and strong for his girlfriend. Notice in the picture that they both look like, "Stay away from me!" But Charlie is making a sneak attack diaper grab. She looks so innocent too?

Ponas sleeping

Both of my Ponas love sleeping with their hands up. I walked in the other day and they were asleep like this, but they were holding hands. It was so stinkin cute, but the camera was dead. I just love my husband and my baby so much. Just can't stand it!

Exhibit A and B of our son's obesity

Neglected Child

Pona and I were having a nice time visiting after I came home from work. We left Baby Pona in the living room to play under his toy. We decided we should stop neglecting him and when we went out this is what we saw. He looked so cute and he wasn't even complaining.

Tia's Wedding

We went to Pona's cousins wedding last weekend in Vegas. We had so much fun with his family. I always love going to his family's weddings. They are so fun! Baby Pona went to his first temple and got to meet his cousins. It was lovely!

Baby Pona Rolling

Little Pona rolled over for the 1st time yesterday. This was the 3rd time he did it. He was getting tired by #3, so it took him a little while, but at least he did it again for the camera.

Pona gave me the best birthday ever. You might not want to read this because you'll be so jealous that Pona isn't your husband. You've been warned. So, he picked me up from school at 3:20 with a snack because he knew I'd be hungry. Then he dropped me off at the spa. He had already schedule me an hour massage and an hour facial. They were awesome!! Ridiculously awesome. Then he picked me up and took me home. There he had a big birthday cake for me and a present. He bought me guitar hero! I love guitar hero. Then we were going to dinner. Our friend Regan watched baby Pona for us. He took me to Tucanos. I love Tucanos. So delicious!!! The best part was that he had called all my old roomates who still live in Utah and they all came too! It was so awesome to see them all. Then we came home and watched 7 Pounds cuz I've wanted to watch it for a while. Now, that's an awesome bday! I don't think he could've fit another surpise in there. It was so fun. I love my husband!
