A letter to our boy

May 28, 2008

Dearest Danny,

Today’s the big day! Exactly one year ago today, you came into this world, and I remember blurting out to your mama "it’s a Daniel!"

And what a Daniel you are! Someday you’ll read this blog, which is in many ways a chronicle of your life, and we really hope you can comprehend the powerful love that we have for you.

I wish I could write you something amazing and wonderful and profound and wise, but all I can think of, is to tell you that we love you with every ounce of our being.

Your smile is brilliant, your laughter infectious, and a hug from you is pure joy.

And even though we know you’ll continue to grow and change, we also know that there is a part of you that will never change--your essential nature. All that is good and kind and sweet. We love you Danny. Happy first birthday son.

–Yours oh so truly, Mommy and Mama
