Four Years Ago Today

Four Years Ago Today, my son Kai came into our lives after long hours of labor … and we couldn’t be happier.

Here’s just a few pictures of Kai through the years up until his birthday today. Hard to believe he started out like this:

And then we have him today, here with me at Toys-R-Us under the T-Rex:

And this morning, on his way to school, officially four years old:

Being this kid’s father has been the most enlightening, challenging and rewarding thing ever … and it seems like time just flies, as I walk by his side, and I couldn’t be happier for it.

Happy fourth birthday Kai Tate Naka-James, you’re the best ever.

Love,

your dad.
