Somebody's Two

Two is one of the best birthday ages. Malakai was right into his gifts this year.

The whole time we were working on our basement, Kai was helping by running Daddy's drill (until the battery died each day). This set with his very own drill got the best reaction ever. "Yay, yay, yay, yay!" exclaimed while jumping up and down. Man, I wish I had the video camera turned on for that.

While my little man turns two, his Papa has a special day as well. And it just occurred to me how foolish I was to pitch in for his birthday gift - after all, the gift of a grandson on your birthday pays off for a lifetime of birthdays...

Anyway, back to my Kai guy. Malakai, I sure do love you! Your eyes alight with mischief at every turn, your quick grin, and the way you dive right into everything without an ounce of fear - these little bits of you are reflections of your Daddy. You bring me a whole lot of joy and laughter, as well as your fair share of headaches. You're totally living up to your age. And since it's my last time to celebrate this age with one of my babies, celebrate I will. Love you, little buddy!


  1. Happy Birthday, Kai & Lee. Wish I could be there to help celebrate. You better come out next summer...it seems like forever before I can see your little guy again. And all your other wee ones!


I am so glad you stopped by! My hope is that we can engage in a conversation together. I love to reply to your comments, but I need your help to make that happen.

If you have a blogger profile, would you consider editing your profile to "show my email address?" Then, when I receive your comment in my email inbox, I can reply directly to you.

Alternately, you can check the box "email follow up comments to..." so that I can reply to you right here. (You will also receive other readers' comments using this method.)

I'm excited to get to know you better!
