Meet our son- Thesz Kealiikukahaoa Mokuahi Moikeha

Aloha everyone- It has been one month since our son was born and we would like to keep with our Chinese tradition of formally introducing him.

Many of you are wondering what his name is and where we got his name from. For those of you who are interested here it is......

Thesz Keali`ikukahaoa Mokuahi Moikeha was born on September 8, 2007 at 7:27 pm. He was 7 lbs 15 oz , and 19 3/4 inches long.

Thesz is the last name of the World Heavyweight Champion Wrestler Lou Thesz. He was Grandpa Steamboat's mentor and a very close friend. Thesz is a Hungarian name.

Keali`ikukahaoa is a family name from Kauokalani's grandmother's `ohana.

All of our sons carry their mother's maiden name as their middle name- Mokuahi.

Keali`i has really big eyes. When he was born he looked all around the room. He shows interest in anything that is going on. He also has really long fingers and large feet. He likes to be held so that he can see what is happening around him. If you cradle him in your arms you better be feeding him or be ready for his temper.

We are happy that Thesz is here in our family. We are very grateful for all seven of our children. We look forward to all the new things that Thesz will learn in his first year as a Moikeha.
