My Dearest Khai,
We are so proud of you in each and every way. We feel incredibly lucky to have you. You prove on a daily basis how smart and strong you are. You have amazing problem solving skills, such as moving a smaller ottoman over so you can climb onto a bigger couch. When we travel together, you would walk the distance with us instead of needing to be carried. You can sprout multiple teeth, including molars, simultaneously and never give a sign of discomfort or pain. You make parenting so easy and fun. Bring on year two! We don’t believe for a second that it’ll be terrible. 🙂
Your birthday celebration was so very delightful! Your friends and ours gathered for a “Choo Choo! Khai is 2” theme party. Everyone had a blast with the built-in play space (climbing center!) and especially with the awesome, custom-made train Photo Booth. The train was stationary for a hot second before it left the station and chugged throughout the center. 🙂 The dining cars were loaded full of home cooked food by daddy. And the entertainment climaxed when we brought out the piñata. We were very impressed with everyone’s batting skills!
My dearest Khai, words can never describe just how wonderful and special you are to us. Your infectious laughter, your bright smiles, your comforting touch and kind words (“Mommy okay?” when you hear me cough), and those inquisitive eyes… Khai, mom and dad love all of you beyond all measures!
