Annabelle,

I have had the unbelievable privilege of watching you grow… Ten years have come… and I’ve collected memories from every second with you.  I remember the first time I saw you…chubby…. red hair… blue eyes…. 8 lbs…  In an instant, I knew that the idea of having a little girl was exactly as I had feared and I’ve been wrapped around your finger since your first day….. The instant you were here…in my life… I became a different creature… something other than a man…but your Dad….  Now, my heart whispers your name… and I have a love for you that will require a lifetime to share…to give…

We’ve traveled down many…many paths… I’ve listened to your heart… heard your words… watched  your steps… I am so very proud of you… Proud of the way you’ve grown.  I’ve learned so much… I understand that you have an enormous heart…

….and I’m excited to see where it leads you…. I will keep a tight hold of your little hand, Neshume-le…. and I see the divine spark in you… your blue eyes give you away…..  

I have spent so many nights sitting by your bed….prayed that the angels cover you… I must confess, that I believe you to be one of them… an angel…  This weekend  your family gathered….. ’round you… celebrated your 10 yrs… Annabelle’s Decade…  My little girl….. I hope you enjoyed your birthday… I love you.  Of all that I am…or ever wanted to be… my favorite title is “Dad.”  If I ever do anything well…. to the best of my ability….  I hope it is being your Dad…

Baker….

the boy… growing up so very fast….  I’ve had nothing on my mind today…. but you….  and I stopped everything I was doing… the stress of life..work…the concerns of tomorrow…the consequences of yesterday….  just thinking about you…. just you. 

There is nothing….nothing I value more….neither goal…nor prize….  You are priceless…perfect… and no matter how big you grow….or how far you are… You are my little boy. 

I am so glad… so grateful…. that my son…. is you…
