This blog has been up and running for almost 2 years now….281 published posts….and I have written them all! No help from Mister LK. He has read all of them though & has been telling me for a while that he’d like to post something himself one day soon….well all, today is that day! He doesn’t ask me for much, so when he asked to get his words on here, I couldn’t refuse! (Plus his words are pretty great!)
Here is a letter that Mister LK has written to our little Miss A…
You turned two this past weekend and it has been amazing watching you grow up to be the smart, beautiful and wonderful girl that you are. The highlight of my day these past two years has been seeing you when I get home or waking you up on the weekends. You never fail to bring a smile to my face.
I read mommy’s blog and it highlights your accomplishments, crazy antics, funny moments and all that is you, but it’s from mommy’s point of view and I wanted to take this time to write you a letter from daddy.
I love spending time with you. I love you uncontrollably, without reservation and always will for all that you are and the promise of the lady you will become. Our time together is very special to me and I hope that we have a lifetime of special memories. Your smile, laugh, hugs and kisses are infectious.
For a two year old you are very active, curious and as mommy will tell you vocal. You know several colors, can count to 3 and know most of the alphabet. What you do, say and are capable of at this age makes me yearn to see what your future holds and what you will bring to the world. But, as mommy says don’t grow up too fast. You have a bright future ahead of you and should always know that mommy and daddy love you very much. We will always be here for you.
At two years old you are my sunshine and you love it when I sing that song to you often saying “again daddy”. You have been talking for what seems like years, but I still melt when you say Daddy. Our nightly bath-time ritual of playing, singing, counting and learning the alphabet makes me smile just thinking about it. Bath-time has become our special time to hang out with one another when I get home from work and discuss each others day, even if we have spoken on the phone several times already.
I hope that you had a wonderful birthday and enjoyed the party. Lots of people came to celebrate your special day and your mommy did an amazing job decorating the house and cooking deserts for people at the after-party… you’re the only two year old I know of that has an after-party!
On a final note, be kind to mommy and learn from her. She is a creative, smart, caring and beautiful woman that can teach you a lot. We both love you very much.
Nice job Daddy…we love you so much.
“Nice job” doesn’t quite cut it. Excellent job 🙂
