To my sons – Kaleo Samuel, Makani James & Keoni Schooler:
Happy 3rd Birthday!!!
I can not believe that another year has come and gone. We have been on so many EPIC adventures in the past 365 days! Kaleo, Makani and Keoni I hope that you will be able to look back fondly and remember all of the fun times that we spent together as a family. I know that I enjoyed being a part of all of these memories with you! 🙂
My first born – you will always be the oldest and most opinionated of our boys. You are a bit of a fashionista, yet still manage to be 100% monkey! You are so brave and intuitive. You can be so sweet and loving one minute and well, the polar opposite the next! These traits will work in your favor when you are older and have the ability to harness their power. You continue to create new dance moves on a daily basis and now you are mixing in a couple of yoga positions too! I love that you can still nap in your car seat, whether it is a short trip around the block or a 2 hour drive. I can’t wait to see what your future brings – you continue to be a beacon of light to those around you and your light shines bright for all to see!
My little Makani Boy! You are not little anymore, but you are so sweet! Especially to daddy. I love that you will share whatever you have with me, whether it’s ice cream or candy – it doesn’t matter to you! You are and will always be Daddy’s boy!!! I look forward to all of the different games that we play and our early morning chats. You are so cautious and very observant of the world around you. You lead by example and rarely get into trouble. I am sure this will be beneficial to you later in life. I see you striving to make the world a better place each and every day. I love this picture of you – ‘DREAM BIG – Makani Boy’!!!
Big Boy! Our little, Big Man. You are such a sweetheart, but you still have a little bit of a mean streak! I don’t think you realize how strong you are. You love your family and it shows. You are a mama’s boy and that’s ok! Mommy loves you too! I love how you run with careless abandon on our morning walks. My heart over flows with joy when I hear you laughing and having fun. I think your strength and physical presence will come in handy when you are older and know how to control it. I see you as our ‘protector’ and the next in line should anything happen to me. I love my little Big Boy!!!
I hope that someday each of you will be able to read this blog and remember some of the happy memories we had when you were growing up. I love you boys with all of my heart and I will continue to provide the best possible foundation for you to grow your future upon.
I am beyond blessed and honored to be your Dad.
Happy 3rd Birthday!!!
-With all of my love,
Mahalo ke Akua/God Bless!
