My Dearest Son,
Today you are 1 month old. On one hand this is nearly impossible to believe because it feels like just yesterday that saw you open your eyes to the world for the first time. On the other hand it feels like forever ago because I’ve watched you change and grow every single day. Your transformation has been nothing short of amazing. I’ve watched you start to discover yourself, your world, your mom, and of course me. I’ve felt the strongest love possible with you from the day you were born, but now I feel the roots of a bond, a connection, growing between us. You reach out and grip my finger. I “boop” your nose and you smile. You cry, I hold you, and I see comfort and security in your eyes. Even when I can’t solve your pain, just holding you in my arms seems to help take the edge off. Maybe I’m just projecting my feelings and you can’t really tell, but I hope you can feel it.
My goal over this next month is to explore our connection and strengthen it even more. I want nothing but the best for you and I know that starts with me. Keep growing, little man, and you’ll accomplish great things. I hope when you sleep you rest easy knowing that I’ll be there every step of the way.
