Daddy, what’s a birthday? I don’t think I’ve had one of those yet, but I think today is your birthday, because it seems that there’s a special feeling in the air.
What’s air, Daddy? I don’t think I’ve felt that yet, but I have special feelings around me all the time.
What’s time, Daddy? I know Momma tells big sister Hope “Time for a snack, time for a nap, time to play, time to wash hands, time to go to bed.” So many words I don’t know.
But one thing I know is that you must love Momma and big sister Hope very much, because they seem happy. I know, because happy is a feeling, and that’s what I do best!
One day soon, I’ll be able to do more than feel – I’ll be able to hear, and I’ll wonder what all those sounds are that I hear.
Daddy, what are you all doing out there? Whatever it is must make you happy, because I feel happy to hear you.
One day soon, you’ll hear me, and I’ll hear you without all these thumping and swooshing noises around me. But for now, I’ll stay warm and cozy in here.
I love you, Daddy.
Happy Birthday! I’ll meet you soon – on my birthday! Momma says that’ll be late November.
What’s November, Daddy? Never mind, you can tell me later."
Your new little one
