To my sons – Kaleo, Makani & Keoni,
Wishing you the Happiest of Birthdays!!!
The three of you have brought so much joy to our lives 🙂 When we are out together, total strangers always come up and say to us – ‘Wow, you have your hands full!’
–Not nearly as full as our hearts!!!
What you lack in size you make up for in attitude and cuteness! You are such a creative thinker and always try to be the center of attention. It cracks me up when you come up with all your ‘new dance moves’!!! Sometimes, I feel like you get the short end of the stick because your brothers are a little needy when it comes to Mom & Dad’s attention. Never the less, you manage to keep yourself entertained and happy! You are fearless to a fault – I have never seen you shy away from a danger or a stranger! Hopefully we can get you to reel it in a little, but I definitely don’t want to hold you back – it is who you are!
Daddy’s boy! I have stopped trying to count how many words you know now – the number is unfathomable. So smart, so articulate and such a Papa’s boy! I am grateful for the unspoken connection that we share. You teach me new things on a daily basis. I love how observant you are, especially as you notice all of the little details in the world around us. You are always quick to point them out to me! Keep smiling and flashing those baby blues!
-Keoni ‘Big Boy’
Mama’s little Big Boy! People say all of the time that you are a Mini-Me, so I guess it’s true that the apple doesn’t fall far from this tree! You are clearly the shyest of our boys. It takes you a little longer to warm up to strangers, but I think you have the biggest heart. Also, like me – you love your Mom so much and I know it warms her heart when you give her one of your Big Boy hugs! I hope that your love of life continues to grow and blossom!
Mahalo ke Akua! (Thank you God!)
With all my Love – Happy Second Birthday Kaleo, Makani & Keoni!
