gimme a t-h-r-e-e



Good morning, my sweet boy. Today you are three. What more perfect day can you have your cake and eat it too? Chocolate cake batter is the perfect breakfast, of course.

You have enlightened us with your smiles and growls for three years now, and I can't think of a better way to be enlightened. If only I could growl just as good. Maybe one day, you can teach me. Although I somehow believe that a growl such as yours is one-of-a-kind.
Thankyou for teaching me how to love little boys with a perfect love. Thankyou for teaching me patience and how to see the joy in a simple cake batter turned mud pile. Thankyou for coming into my world little man. I waited for you, and you were worth the wait.

Today to celebrate your wonderfulness I will let you take the longest bath ever with as many bubbles as you want. And I will clean up the messy floor from your taking the longest bath ever without complaint. And we will play with your train and watch Wall-E and Curious George. And I will chase you around the living room not because I want to, but because YOU want to and you are super fast. And I will attempt to make a monkey cake because I think it will make you growl for joy. I say again, attempt. And we will do all of this for you not because it is your birthday (although that is a bonus because we get cake) but simply because you are you. And oh, how grateful I am for that.

Happy Birthday Sweet Kai! I love your crazy hair that reflects your personality so well, the glint in your eye, and the way you love PLAY! Have a wonderful day today - I know you'll rock at 3.
Love from, "Hah", "Juwee", "Babee", and your big wrestling partner who I don't think you've given a name. Mostly you just give him head-buts.
