Dear Baby Eva,
Today is the day my best friend was born- your daddy. Your Daddy and I have known each other a long time, but we didn’t start dating until 7 years ago. I was 18 and just finishing high school and he was 22 and away in the Marine Corps. In the past 7 years, I’ve gotten to know your Daddy very well, and today I’m going to tell you about him.
Your Daddy is a total goofball. He’s always joking around and making silly voices. He is so much fun to be around. This especially comes in handy when I’m feeling down. He can always make me laugh my way out of a bad day.
Your Daddy is fearless. He is “Airborne,” meaning he jumps out of planes for the military. He has been to war three times. He also does MMA and he charges bigger waves than anyone I know personally.
Your Daddy loves animals, especially our kitties. I always make fun of him and call him a cat lady. The truth is we’d have all sorts of animals if we didn’t travel and move around so much.
Your Daddy loves you more than you’ll ever know. I’ll never forget the look on his face the day you were born. His eyes welled up with tears and I could see the bliss and awe in them. You’re only two weeks old and he’s already done enough bragging about you for a lifetime.
