When you were born you looked like me, and know that you are grown you resemble my side of the family more. I am grateful that you were such a delightful happy baby, grateful that you have always loved to be around people, grateful for your gentle way with animals and newborn babies, grateful for your wicked sense of humor, and grateful you are my son.
You have introduced me to endless new experiences and emotions as my oldest son. I am excited for your future and proud of what you have accomplished so far. I am grateful you are my first son, grateful that you are compassionate and kind, smart and funny, and artistic.
