Friday Baby Blogging - Kai Naka-James … The Year In Pictures 2008

I’ve done a lot of things in 2008, as many have, I’ve written a ton of words, met some great people, had a play or two done here and there in different parts of the country … it’s been a busy year. Oh, and we finally got a New President, a historic one, and he’s cool. This time of year I always mull this type of stuff … mainly because I’m about to turn a year older (tomorrow) which leads to contemplation.

Usually a year goes by and the only difference a guy is really concerned about is the progress his forehead makes on its long journey to the back of his neck. Not so for me, this year. While some really cool things have happened for me professionally, and I couldn’t be happier about the political change in our country, the thing that most occupied my private time was my son … and it’s fascinating to see how he’s grown in the course of a single year.

So here you go … Kai Naka-James, the Year in Pictures …

Some background necessary on this picture … if I recall, Kai just ran into the kitchen and dumped some water all over the place, which tickled him mightily. Heh-heh.

That’s the year in pictures … Pretty awesome to see how he’s grown in twelve months, ain’t it?

I may have to discontinue Baby-Blogging simply because my son is no longer a baby, he’s a toddler and before you know it, he’s gonna be asking me to buy him a car. But we’ll keep sharing pictures for family as time goes on.

Thank you all who stop by and visit, and may 2009 bring you all you wish and desire.
