I shan’t write anything that will bring a tear to your eye.
Instead, I’ll keep it simple.
You are respected.
You are supported.
You are so loved.
I am so thankful that we’ve been able to live less than a mile away from one another for nearly five years.
I love you to the moon and back and I am so, so glad that you were born.
happy, happy birthday.
P.S. Lila says she loves you and happy birthday, too. Vivienne, while she concurs – she can’t talk quite yet and only waves her arms. I take that to mean, “hear, hear!”
