It's such a joy watching Kaish grow up into a young man. You are both raising him to be loving and kind. His smile lights up the computer screen. I am hoping that Kaishon has the best birthday ever. (I know he will because he is so very loved.)

LOVE that first pic.. snow in the wild hair.

What a beautiful boy.
And yes, I know boys don't like to be called beautiful, so don't tell him I said he was.

But he is.

Happy Birthday to him.

What they never told me was that the years fly, but a mom can still so easily see the little boy inside her big 11 year old. Thank God for the special mom eyes. My favorite mom super-power. ;-)

I hope you all had a wonderful 11th birthday celebration. Based upon what I see in Mayan's little brother, big changes are ahead for all of you. Hang on to your hats!!

Dana-from chaos to Grace said...

awwwww....the years go by so very very fast. :( Enjoy it! And I hope my little birthday buddy had a SPECTACULAR day! :D

(Oh, and I always use it as a reminder....the "be kind" comment. I've always used it with the youth girls at church as they go out of the cabin at church camp...I don't know why I always say it. Just a reminder to everyone to be kind. I guess that's my motto. LOL And no, no one is mean to me.....my husband carries a gun and I know how to use it. People know better than to be mean to me! HAAAAAA!!)

I'm just the MOM said...

11 is a good year :) And he seems to wear it well.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAISH!
