I love the bond that each of our children share individually with their daddy and I see that bond getting stronger and stronger between Britt and Zach. I loved looking back at their photos together from her 4th year of life and love the sweet letter he has written to her for her birthday!
This past year, it has been so amazing watching you grow. It seems like just yesterday I was holding you in the palm of my hand. You seem so grown! I know sometimes I probably expect too much of you. It’s because you seem so much older than you are.
It is so sweet how you look up to your brother. You want to do all the things that he does. I remember how at Disney world you wanted to ride all the same rides he did, even though you don’t like heights or going fast. You rode them too. You DID NOT like them, but you rode them because he did. It really reminds me of your Aunt Casey. She used to do the same things.
Many times when I am at work, I get excited to come home and just see your smile. It is infectious! You have your moments but when you are being sweet you make my heart melt. When I get home and you run in and yell “Daddyyyyyyyyyyyyyy”, and I see that smile, it makes all of the days troubles fade.
My favorite thing from this past year was you singing in the car. Me and you have had a lot more time together in the car without Kye since he started 1st grade. You love for me to turn the music up loud. You just sing at the top of your lungs and it is so beautiful. I also love when you say “Daddy, I can’t see you, fix the mirror”. You always want the rearview mirror on me so that you can make eye contact with me. Your favorite songs to sing are “Hello” and “Fire to the Rain” by Adel. You also like “See you again” by Wiz Kalifa (clean version!)
This year has also brought on a lot of dancing. You love to dance. If a song comes on during a movie you will just get up and dance around the living room. And the dancing is not complete without accessories. Oh my goodness. Hair bands, bracelets, gloves, scarves, hats, earrings, necklaces, rings, crazy socks, big pink boas, you accessorize like crazy. I love how you like to dress up. Whether is going out to dinner or checking the mail, you will dress up.
Lastly, I want you to know how much I love you, and how proud I am to be your Daddy. I hope that you know that I love you more than anything in this world. Every night when I sing to you and you look up at me with those gorgeous eyes and beautiful smile, I can see that you love me too. You will always be my little princes whether your 4 or 40.
