Thank you for an incredible summer. It has been amazing to witness you grow in your new role as a father these past few months. Seeing you as a father has deepened and strengthened my love for you. Remember driving Peter home from the hospital in May? It seems like yesterday and so long ago all at the same time. I remember it was a bright, warm day. You drove carefully, looking back at us in the rear view mirror when traffic allowed. Your eyes were full of deep love for Peter and me. Those are the little memories I treasure in my heart and pray I never forget.
I cannot believe it is mid-September and that we are entering the last week of summer! Peter is almost four months. Every day he changes and there is something new and beautiful he does. I love seeing him flourish. I love watching the two of you together. The way he looks at you, the way you sing to him and make him laugh – these are the joys of my heart.
Mike, I am so proud of you. This summer was one of change and growth. The way you have balanced school, a new job, and fatherhood inspires and motivates me. You truly live life to the fullest, and through your actions you are teaching Peter to do the same. Thank you for all you do.
I love you.
