My son is 3 years old today. This year has been a testament to how far you have come. I can’t even begin to remember what you were like at 2 or 1 before that. You have taken on such a great personality that it is hard to see you growing up so much more over the next few years.
You truly astonish me and show me how great it is to be a father. A father who spends most of his time trying to keep up with you and your wild ways. But all in all, I would not trade a single moment for anything else. Even the moments where you are throwing a loud enough temper in Target to have young ladies staring our way to see what I could be doing wrong. Even the times you cry out in that high pitched scream that sends shivers through my bones.
I love you and I am truly trying to be the best I can be to see you grow deeper and deeper into who you are. It is my simple hope that you would become the greatest man of your generation for God’s kingdom and I am baffled by your love for great stories and heroes.
You are now “reading” more than I am and attacking life with everything you have and I am fascinated by watching your curiousity get the better of you. Don’t lose that insatiable hunger to experience more. It will take you on great journeys.
I love you and I can’t wait to see all that you are going to become. Keep reaching for the stars and just let your mom and I join in with it all. We love you and thank God everyday for you.
