Two years and a day later

A beautiful baby girl was born.

We had no idea how she would change our lives. She spoiled us, really, by being such a sweet child: always quick to laugh, tender hearted and smart. And did I mention pretty? Oh, very.

Not that I'm biased or anything.

And the young woman she's become just amazes me. I know her mother and I deserve some of the credit, but our influence only goes so far. We've provided a strong foundation and a stable framework, and it's up to her how she builds on that from here on out. At seventeen she's just beginning to realize the world is hers to shape to her will. I pray that she continues to make good choices.

Happy birthday, sweetie. I love you.
