Kai turned 3 years old today! I can't believe he is 3. 3 years ago after 17 hours of labor and at 8 pounds 12 ounces my big first child was born. I am constantly amazed by him. By his intelligence, kindness, intuitiveness and humor. He carries my heart. No 3 year old should ever have to carry their mothers heart but we have no choice. I depend on him to soothe my sorrow even though no words are spoken. He holds my heart and loves me because I am his mama. That is how he rescues me. I am not sure how I would be coping right now with out him. Honestly he buoys me. I feel so lucky to be his mother. I wish Camille could have been here to eat chocolate cake with him. We gave him a bike with training wheels which he can already ride. We celebrated with our friends who Kai loves dearly and he will have a little kid party on Friday. Everyday I am thankful for his aliveness, for his hugs and kisses and sweet funny self.
Happy birthday baby. I love you bigger than the sky.
