Dear Sweet Teddy,
Your arrival is approaching and I am so excited! I spent some time with your parents today and I have to tell you, it’s so evident how in love they already are you with. We spent time talking about who you’ll look more like, what color your hair will be, what color eyes you’ll have….both their faces smiling, full of joy at the thought of their son to be. Kid, I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again, you hit the parent lottery! Your mom and dad are two of the greatest people I know. I’m so thankful that our path crossed and we’ve developed a friendship over the last few years.
Your mom, she’s one of the most genuine, kind people I know. She always gives me good sound advice and she always speaks truth to me. Stuff that builds me up and helps me to see what sometimes I don’t see in myself. I know that I can turn to her and she’s always there to listen. She’s hardworking and smart. Like crazy smart! I’m certain she’s going to knock this being-a-mom thing out the park!
Your dad, one of the funniest most gentle men I’ve known. He treats your mom with such great care. Today, I saw him gently take her hand as we made our way through sand, making sure she was safe and comfortable! And boy can he make your mom laugh! Your dad’s happiness is contagious! His light, fun personality makes him easy to talk to. He’s a great husband and I know he’ll be father of the year, year after year!
I could go on and on telling you how great your parents are but you’ll see for yourself. Soon. And as you grow up, my hope is that you’ll realize how incredibly lucky you are to have them. The world we live in can be complicated and dark but your parents are lights in this world and I firmly that they will raise you to be the same!
