One of my favorite things about living here on Maui is that we can go to the beach any time we want and there are so many beautiful beaches. When Elmer and I were picking out names for our baby the name Kai was a quick pick. Not only was it cute but in the Hawaiian language Kai means ocean, but with a deeper meaning. The ocean to the Hawaiians was a giver of life. My little Kai really has given me the gift of living. Each day he takes me with him and shares his joy in discovering this beautiful world. When we first got here Elmer took Kai out to the ocean and jumped in. He was only 4 months then and the BIG, cold, noisy waves that came crashing down only scared him for a minute, over the next couple of months he learned to LOVE the ocean. We go to the beach often, almost daily and while we might not always get in the water nothing feels better to me than to be snugly in my Elmer Sandwich watching the waves come and go.
I love to watch him learn. And am constantly wondering "just what is he thinking about"
I think that if you could take a picture of my heart you would find the same image, Kai's precious little foot prints all over my heart. I LOVE YOU KAI!!!
Work it Baby, work it! He is already posing for pictures on the beach half naked!!!
