The Sand and the Sun

For Father's Day we did a little beachside picnic. Maya and Kai had a pretty good time and lets just say that they wore the sand well. :-)

So this one is for my Pops. He brought Kai Taki, the talking bear that sings songs in Greek. Maya & Kai got down to Taki's little songs. You'll notice that Kai says Opa at the end!

We love you Papou Victor!

Hmmmm. . . who do I look like?

It's funny, I think people always say that children look like the person they're standing next to. For Kai, people look at the light hair and ask where that came from. Lately I've been tempted to tell them that we rescued him from a Swedish Orphanage. Looking at this photo, the resemblance is pretty clear.

A beautiful day!

Over Memorial Day weekend, Brendt's cousin Cade married his longtime sweetheart Shauna in a elegant, personal and playful celebration at Cade's parent's home in Tucson, Arizona. With the sun setting over the mountains they said vows that were very much their own. The occasion also brought together all the Wilson cousins for the first time in quite a while along with all their kids. Here are a few of the highlights from that wonderful event.

Giddy Up!

While rocking out to a little Men at Work, Kai jumped on the Blue Dog (a favorite birthday hand-me-down) and took off.

Good Morning World

In the mornings, Kai is at first snugly and then happy. Here he is after he hopped into his chair, a family heirloom that his papou had as a child. Don't you just love footie PJ's? They're pretty easy to find up until side 4T, after that it is a bit of a trick! We can enjoy them for a few more years without much hassle.

Belly B

One of Kai's favorite books is Sandra Boyton's Belly Button Book. Likewise, he has an affinity for this part of his anatomy. You'll often find him wandering around the house with two hands firmly on his Bely B, Beeboo, bee-beep, you choose the name, the fun is still the same.

Playing at Nana's

Kai got the great fortune to spend almost 2 weeks in Arizona in May. The first one with his Grandma, and then the 2nd with his Nana. Here are a few photos of Kai and his cousin Maya playing with water in the atrium at Nana's house.

School's out for Summer!

Yesterday was the last day of school at Steele Canyon HS. Brendt will be doing a little Daddy Day Care with Kai this summer and I'm sure there will be many days on the beach with my guys, like this one. This happened to be during our family party on Kai's first birthday.

Bye bye helmet!

So, it's official, Kai's head is round(er). After 4 months of Starband treatment, Kai's head is significantly less flat than it once was. Hallelujah!

This photo was at his final session where they took these amazing computerized photos in 360 degrees to show his improvement. It's noticeable to say the least. I know it's a strange photo, but it is a milestone that we greatly celebrated.

Wonder where the blog went?

Ahhhh, so Kai is so very active these days. It only takes watching us one time for him to figure out how to open a cabinet, drawer, closet, etc. So the possibilites are ENDLESS. :-)
