HAPPY BIRTHDAY,KAI

This is a special day in our lives. The above two pictures were taken hours after Kai's birth on January 3,2006. At this point Jake and I had become first time grandparents. What an awesome feeling this was and still is. The last two pictures are now three years later, and grandparenthood is only getting better. Grandma and Grandpa love you Kai.

Happy Birthday Kai (on the 6th)... I love the pictures. Both you and Jake obviously adore that sweetie pie. I especially love that last picture of you, Ruth, with Kai. Hope you framed that one!!!!

Now there's a child whose photo exudes the love for her grandparents. And it's obvious the feeling is mutual (from grandparents to grand-daughter). Happy birthday, Kai. May you have many more BDs with your grandparents.

Yes, it doesn't get any better than being 'gramma' and 'pap' at our house, too! You just don't think you have that much love to give until you get a grandbaby! Beautiful pictures, memories...and what a doll your grand daughter is!
