{Dear Papa}

Wednesday, October 29, 2014


Thank you for feeding me my first bite of real food.


For playing me like a trumpet.

For holding me in your lap before bedtime.


For taking me fly fishing.


For putting together my activity jumper that had a thousand screws.

For teaching me simple things like the importance of owning a good flannel.


For telling me you'd love me even if I had upper lip hair.


And for taking me hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the fall.
Love,

Brave, you are such a joy! I am loving being a father to you! Thank you for your grace and flexibility as I figure it out on a daily basis! It's a bonus that I get to team up with your sweet, beautiful, and witty mama! Love, Papa
