Happy 8th Birthday Hue!

You’ve been looking forward to this day for the longest time! Why do you think even numbed ages are so much cooler than odd numbed ages? It is so cute that a birthday is the best day for you, even better than Christmas!

You are becoming such a smart, talented and hard working boy! I am impressed with your reading improvement. You’ve been working so hard and I am proud of you for sticking with it. You’ve been doing so well with running club and karate practice. I know why you are getting so good at karate. It’s because you listen to sensei and practice hard everyday. I believe that you can reach any goal when you are determined to do so, and I want you to know that I am here to support you.

Hue, I am enjoying seeing you being an awesome big brother to baby Charlie. Your kind soul truly shines when you are with Charlie. You are nothing but a loving, caring and thoughtful big brother. I enjoy seeing this side of you so much.

You wrote on school project, “I understand baby has to cry sometimes.” Yet you are so concerned and feeling bad whenever Charlie has to cry. You want to help him be happy at all times. In the car when baby cries, I hear your shushing sound, along with Kai’s singing of Hush Little Baby. When he starts crying at home, you always run to him to give him a pacifier. If he doesn’t stop crying, you ask me to hold him. You scolded me once time for leaving Charlie on the changing table for a few seconds!

Hue, you are such a competitive boy! I hope you can loosen up a little and enjoy life as it is. Sometimes it’s nice to be able to laugh at your flaws or losses. When you are calm and working hard at what you want, the result will naturally follow.

Happy birthday my big boy. I still want to hold you and kiss your beautiful face all the time! I love you so!


P.S. Ok this is what he really wanted me to take a picture of…. him and his Nerf gun. This is his passion right now and he will talk about it for hours.
