There's been alot happening at the Cash home and it's all stuff I don't want to forget about. So here it goes:
Traekon turned 8! Am I really old enough to have a 8 year old? He was baptized on March 26th and had lots of family and friends here to support him. He sang "I'm Eight" which was written by Grandma Norma. He sang so good, and i'm sure there was hardly a dry eye in the whole crowd. His toe popped up so he got to be baptized twice! The spirit was so strong that day. It was such a good day! He got to start scouts and loves it so far.
Traekon also fasted for the first time and did so awesome. He never complained about being hungry and lasted until 3:30. He's already a better faster then me! I am so proud of this kid!!
We headed to the dentist last week and the dentist informed us that Traekon's very large front teeth are blocking the way for his side teeth to come in, so we get to head to the orthodontist this week. Pretty sure he's going to cost me a mini fortune by the time we're finished with this mouth! Here's a picture of his big ol choppers:) Someday they are going to fit in his mouth and be beautiful!
Kenzi started kindergarten this year and loves it. She comes home excited to do homework which we weren't used to with her big brother who would try his best to get out of doing it! It's a nice change. Since Hudson's been born she has become the second mommy. She even loves to change his diapers all by herself! She's a keeper. She learned Traekon's baptism song along with him and loves to sing it at night before bed. Killed two birds with one stone, because now I don't have to teach it to her in two years!
Kenzi is currently in gymnastics and is pretty natural at it. She is currently on the "pre-team" and goes two days a week for a hour and a half each time. I just recently went to a parent meeting and they informed us that when they make "team" they will need to come to gymnastics 3 times a week, for 3 hours each time. What?! That's crazy!! Nothing is recreational around here. We'll see what happens with that. I guess if she loves it enough we'll consider??
Kenzi also went to the dentist and has her first two cavities...ugh! I'm afraid the girl has bad teeth like her mother.
Ashton just makes us laugh, period. We can't get enough of this funny little guy! He says the most random, funny things and we love it. He's in preschool and he just eats it up. I wish I could remember some of his randomness, but of course I forget to write it down and then forget whats said altogether! Next time...
Ashton loves Hudson. He can make him laugh pretty good and insists on hugging and kissing him every hour. He's definitely our most lovey dovey kid. He tells me everyday someone new that is his best friend.
Ashton also went to the dentist and did really good, but wouldn't let them x-ray his teeth so hopefully he doesn't have any hidden cavities festering in there!
Hudson started smiling at 3 weeks and started giggling at 11 weeks. He is now 12 lbs and and 23 inches long. He loves to smile! He is a momma's boy. He's pretty content as long as he's in my arms. It's been so fun having such a big gap between Ashton and Hudson. The older kids love to hold and help take care of him, sometimes to his dismay! We started letting him sleep in his swing (not swinging) when he was around 3 weeks because he was so congested and we still have him sleeping in it at night. I know, bad! But hey, he sleeps 7 hours straight sometimes so I can't give it up. Don't judge, you'd probably do the same thing for a little sleep!
Hudson got blessed the same day Traekon got baptized. He screamed through the whole thing! Sad to say I payed more attention to the screaming then the blessing! I'm sure it was a great blessing I just couldn't hear it!

Our family of 5 has now become 6! Hudson Kupono Cash made his appearance January 17, 2011 at 11:50 a.m. He was 6 lbs 10 oz and 19 inches long. He is such a sweet little guy and we all love him to pieces. All my sisters were able to come out and babysit me and my family the week he was born, and then Grams came the next week to take care of us. I'm so grateful for such a loving family who was willing to come and help! You're all awesome!!
