Punawai Newsletter – May 2009

I just returned from seeing my 9 month old mo‘opuna, Ella. I’m amazed at how fast she is growing and changing. Perhaps because I don’t see her daily, I’m able to pick out how much bigger she is, how much more hair she has, how many more expressions she has, how she eats like a horse and how her smiles light up the room and rock my world. The only hard part is when she first sees me it usually takes about a day before she is comfortable with me. It breaks my heart to have her be scared or cry and not want to be with me when she first sees me.
