happy birthday g

gavie i love you
such a sweet and beautiful child
we're gonna go to the zoo today
eat some robot birthday cake
we're gonna spend the whole day as a family
doing things you like to do
make it as special as we can for you
maybe we'll make your first memory today?
i mean the first one that'll actually stick with you
a picture of momma in front of the lion cage
or dadda walking like a monkey?

a promise to you
i'm not gonna work a second today
or answer emails
or talk on the phone
all G
all day
mom and i got you some really cool toys
i hope you like 'em
some robots to add to your collection
and a bunch of other stuff
you are
such a funny and personality laden young man
so many words in you for only being 3
your vocab is already bigger than doug simmon's

we're trying to be good parents
i hope we don't fail you
i know someday we will
we're only human afterall
humans were made to fail
and fall apart from time to time
but it's what is in your heart that counts
right?
i'm asking you???
you're only 3!!
but i wanna be a good father to you
i hope i am
i'll keep trying no matter what

you came to us at 10:10pm
august 4th
2003
changed my life
and your mom's
for the much better
it was like my heart had been frozen solid before 10:10pm
8/4/03
at 10:11
completely thawed
i made a lot of sobbing "i love you, maaaaan..." phonecalls that night
i loved everyone in the universe
i wanted to show them
hug them
let them know i'd taken it all for granted before
ahh the night you were born
what a wonderful night
and we're gonna celebrate it today
all day
it's gonna be a non-stop action G party train!!!!!

He owes me four dollars! As soon as he learns to count and gets an allowance, it's PAYBACK TIME.
