To My Darling Boy,
Today you are 3 months old and I am nearly speechless. The last month has gone by so quickly that I can’t help but wonder how we’re both able to handle all the forces from the rapid acceleration of time. From what I can tell, you’ve handled them amazingly well. You’ve grown physically and cognitively with a multi-layered personality that’s just starting to blossom. I’ve enjoyed every minute of this last month. The smile when you recognize me when I come home from work every day; our “conversations” where you have so much to say; the hand-eye coordination starting to come into focus; the look of security and safety when I wear you on my chest; the communication bond between us where you’re starting to tell me what you need and trust that I will provide it.
Every day I discover more and more of who you are and who you will become. I see so much potential in your eyes, so much life and joy. My heart bursts with pride and excitement that you want to share that potential with me. Everything from singing songs, dancing to some of my favorite music, or even just our simple game of sticking tongues out. Every single moment like that just reinforces how much I love you and how grateful I am to be your father.
And as if things couldn’t get any better, the next few months you’re due for an explosion of growth, activity, and personality. Even though there will eventually be tough times ahead I’m all smiles and excitement for our future together. You are everything I envisioned as the start of our family’s next generation. Keep growing. I’ll be right here the entire time.
I love you.
