Dear Sweet Henry David,
Today, April 25th, is your birthday! You are finally here, and we could not be more in love with you. You came into the world with determination and grace at 3:00am this morning, weighing in at 9 Lbs. 0 oz. and measuring 20.5 inches long. You have perfect dark hair and captivating hazel eyes, and at this very moment, we are the proudest, most delighted parents in the world. Already you’ve had the chance to meet all of your grandparents (who made a special trip from Chicago today just to see you!), and you have captured all of our hearts, just as we knew you would. You are a miracle. A tiny, blessed, sweet, amazing, glorious miracle, and we can’t wait to see what you will do in the world.
Welcome, baby boy! This has been the very best day of our lives…
thank you, little one, for already enriching our family in the most wonderful way,
your mommy (mm)
