Kaiya turns 8 and i love her so

my baby 'princess from heaven' (thats what her name means in hawaiian) turns 8 today. Lauryn Kaiulani Ward. my firstborn, i remember the day like it was yesterday. she started out in this world a bit stubborn, totally determined and full of cuteness, and always some attitude!!

So far and hopefully she stays that way!!

upside down in the birth canal, wouldnt budge when they tried to turn her.............so a couple minutes and a slice or two later, our little kaiya was here. born in hawaii via c-section.

Proud dad? You have no idea.

It was as if the world revolved around us and our new little baby princess. She slept in our closet. Our apartment was made of cinderblocks, minutes (walking) from the beach. I loved going surfing and seeing kaiya in the car seat next to alissa on the beach. EVERYDAY!

i loved taking her for ride on my longboard skateboard with alissa all worried. Holding her against my bare chest at night. I remember one day when the swell was big, waves were double overhead, 12 foot faces or so. Catching a bigger wave than i should have i went right, backside on the wave, got worked, my leash snapped, board washed way down the beach and i was struggling. it was a long time. there came a point after being held down by wave after wave that i really thought i was not gonna make it. i was ready to blow out my air and it was gonna be the deep sleep in the blue water. what killed me the most was the thought of not seeing my baby grow up. now all i want to do is be an amazing dad. Be there for them, everyday!!!

She was walking at 9 months. Loved books from a young age. Always wanting to help her daddy. She always did and still does, LOVES her friends. Amazing at spelling, sensitive of the underdog, responsible.

She now has grown into quite an impressive young lady.

I love and respect her so much, but sometimes i am a butthole of a dad. I get impatient, i am too hard on my little princess. i expect perfection when i shouldnt. Hells bells....kaiya is just like me, once she has her mind dialed into something, that train is nearly impossible to derail

She is responsible, loving and caring. She is starting to be extra clean and I REALLY love that. She is super helpful with her siblings. Very athletic. Her little arms are ripped, she loves ballet and gymnastics and karate and skateboarding and riding her bike while i go running.

Happy Birthday Baby, thanks for letting me learn how to be a dad with you.

Kaiya is such a princess!!
We love her tons and certainly we were so excited when she was born, making us grandparents (a new adventure for us)!
It is hard to believe how fast she is growing up.
The pictures certainly bring back some fun memories!
Love ... Mom & Dad
