My Makaio turned 3 last month (on September 2nd). We must be doing something right because he is everything I’d want my little boy to be and more. He’s not perfect. He’s spoiled. I’m probably overcompensating for all the attention all the babies get. He’s my first born and I don’t ever want him to forget how much he means to me. No matter what happens in life, he’ll always be my number one! He’s naughty and selfish with his toys sometimes, but what he is NOT, is jealous. He loves, loves, loves his babies like a big brother should. I can already see how protective he’s going to be over his little sister. He even scolds his little brothers if they knock her over or hit her with a toy.
He’s my funny bebe. Makaio is the only person that makes me laugh every single day. His smile brightens my day no matter what is going on. It’s genuine.
We sing “Betcha By Golly, Wow” together almost every day. If you don’t know the song, look it up. Every single word is my truth to him. Another thing I like to do with Makaio is tell him “listen to my heart”, then I place his head against my chest. I tell him it’s saying “love you, love you…” One day after doing that, he said “Mommy, Mommy, listen to my circle”. I said, “it’s not a circle, it’s a heart”. He says back at me “no Mommy, only girls have hearts, boys have circle”. So every time I tell him to listen to my heart, he does the same and tells me his circle says “love you too”.
My heart loves you too, Makaio!
