Lillian, What Do You Want To Say?

Lillian, What Do You Want To Say?

My Darling Lillian:

Words just cannot elucidate the power you have over your mother and me. Your go get em “no, seriously, I am going to do it and there isn’t a thing you can do about it” stubborn attitude. The look on your face as you raise your hand, index finger pointed to the sky, and say with an intense face, “one more”… one more cookie, book, or game of stack the blocks. Your hugs and kisses for no reason. It’s all too much sometimes. My heart swells with pride when you point to pictures of family and say their name. When you tell us, with words no less, exactly what you want in a completely understandable context. Something I never expected you to be doing at 19 months. You are profound in so many ways. You are loving, caring, artistic, athletic, smart, adventurous, inquisitive, and friendly. Lillian, you amaze me at every turn. Undoubtedly fatherhood is much more enjoyable than I had ever imagined it to be. And I know that every parent feels this way about their children, but I want you to know with certainly that this is how I feel about you. Because it won’t always be just you and me and mommy. Some day you will have a brother or sister who will require a lot of my time and I don’t want you to think for even one second that you mean anything less than absolutely everything to me.
