Even though I have known you for well over 10 months, today you have been in my arms for one whole month. In that month, I have loved like never before, worried about things I never thought I’d worry about (I’ll spare you the details 😉 ), cried more happy tears than I have ever cried in my life (that is saying something, I’m a crier), and I have never been happier.. This is all because of you. You and your baby breath, your sweet smell, your cooing noises, your waking grunts. You are amazing. Each day, I look forward to waking up and seeing your sweet baby face. As much as I want you to stay a newborn forever, the days are quickly passing us by. I’m promised that it only becomes more fun, which is hard for me to believe because I’m enjoying you so much already.
Daddy will rarely write you letters, because it isn’t very much like him to do that. I promise I’ll make him scribble a few (and when he does, he will be thanking me he did). But for now, I’ll tell you what he is thinking. He is thinking that there is nothing he loves more than being a father, being YOUR father. Unlike me, he wishes away the days. He looks forward to holding your hand and walking you to your first baseball game. He wants to share his love of bugs and boy stuff, and he can’t wait to get his pretty little hands dirty with you (trust me, only for you my little love). He comes home from work and glows in your presence. He loves you, so much (he is cuddling with you right now so mommy can write this).
Thank you for the past month my sweet angel. It has been the start of what I feel is going to be such an amazing adventure. We are going to do big things kiddo, grandpa already is calling you Mr. President.
So I don’t want to get all mushy and I’ll keep this what it is… Short and sweet.
