Kye’s 3rd Birthday Letter from Daddy

I am a sucker for traditions. Every year on Kye’s birthday we have each written him a letter. I plan to continue this for as long as possible and to do one for each child. I think it’s nice for me to write a letter, but it’s important for Zach to write one. The kids will have PLENTY of reading to do from their mama thanks to this blog, but when do daddies really sit down and write to their children? You can go back and read Zach’s letter to Kye from his first birthday here and from his second birthday here. Of course in true Emily fashion I like to include pictures in each letter of us alone with Kye (for some reason blogger scrambled them all up so they are in random order). Enjoy this year’s letter from Daddy!

Dear Kye,

Wow! You are three!

 It is so crazy to think that just a few years ago I was living a life without you in it.

I am so proud to be your father.

 You are growing up so fast that I wish I could slow down time.

 I think my favorite thing we did during your third year of life was going to Disney.

(side note from Mommy: SCORE!!!!!!!!!!!)

 You had so much fun and I loved watching you light up.

 The best thing that happened this year was hearing you say, “I love you Daddy.”

 I think you finally understand how much Mommy and Daddy love you and what it means to care for your family.

 I also enjoy watching you as a big brother.

 You are so sweet with your sister and I can tell you are going to always be such a great big brother to her.

 I love you so much and can’t wait to see what happens this year with you!

 Love, Daddy

    SO sweet!!  Where did you get that anchor shirt, I WANT!  I don't have to see a letter from Zach to know how much he loves Kye because I can tell from the pictures.  He is a devoted dad and Kye is incredibly lucky to have him.
