So much happened this year, and despite most of it being really great, it definitely has changed our lives in such a way that, while I have time to write this letter, I don’t have time to make it as emotional or eloquent as I would like. Here goes.
As a new dad, it might not surprise you that I’ve had plenty of “firsts” this year, but some of them might surprise you:
Our family had some great adventures too!
As I type this, we’re a few days away from celebrating Charlie Hope’s first birthday. I can’t even begin to describe how much she’s grown up in the last year. She’s such a happy girl who loves to laugh and touch and grab everything she can, including my beard! She is content to sit in her play area surrounded by her toys, playing and babbling away.
We hope your year has been as milestone- and adventure-filled as ours has been.
