Happy Mother’s Day (2012)

A lot has changed over the past (almost) 3 years – but not everything.

I love watching the relationship that has developed between Christine and Maile. Sure, Maile and I have our own bond, but the relationship between mother and daughter is truly something special and being able to watch it develop up close is incredible.

The second picture above captures a lot of it for me. It’s from a few weeks ago, but it shows how Christine is Maile’s #1 teacher. Christine is completely in tune with Maile’s budding interests and is always finding ways to help her discover and explore. Sometimes this is as simple as showing her how to blow bubbles … sometimes, it involves a creative art project (in fact, as I speak, Christine is sitting on the floor, creating little baggies of paper flowers, pasta and ribbon so Maile and her classmates can make leis in school tomorrow!)

I’d be remiss if I didn’t take this day to remind everyone that reads this blog that the pictures you see are almost always from Christine. Almost three years in, this blog is becoming quite the document of Maile’s life and it would be decidedly less interesting without all of Christine’s photos and videos.

So a very happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, but in particular, the one I am lucky enough to call my wife and who is doing an amazing job with our little girl!
