First Father's Day

Dear Daddy,

Before I came into this world, it was just you and Mommy - living life to the fullest!

Taking beach strolls and being silly

Exploring sites

And hikes

Sharing cups of coffee even if you're not coffee drinkers because... why not?

Before I came into existence, I know I was a mere desire.  Not because it was a fad or a requirement to have a child, but probably because there is an overwhelming amount of love that you and mommy just have to give to a little peanut like me.

Here's a little secret: I asked God, "if you will send me to earth, please let me have a good father.  One whom I could look up to, one who's not perfect (for nobody is), but one who will make his love as the fuel to make all ends meet, one who will nurture me to the best of his abilities, and even if he's not capable of doing everything, may he be willing to strive to just try!  After all, I'm just a little helpless peanut.  It won't hurt if you'll make my every inch and crevice look like him."

God answered me this way

I always hear you say it's a miracle.  Well, I think that I'm not a miracle but just a little peanut.  Hehehe!  But if you must insist, then let's call me a miracle. 

Maybe the entirety is a miracle indeed because even from inside Mommy's tummy, I already felt a lot of positive vibes!  I would hear your voice and more than just the tangible sounds, I felt your love coming through whatever it is that separated us.  Thank you!

Fast forward to the 19th of July, I wasn't ready but come out to the world I must, with a wail as thunderous as a gong!  Should I really exaggerate?  Hahaha!

The first time you held me was all sorts of wonderful.  I could sense you were nervous but I've never felt more secure in the entire 8 hours of my earthly life!  Thank you!

Daddy, you are only in the sixth week of your fatherhood journey.  I'd like to present you now with your "Best Father in the World / Universe" badge!  Congratulations!  I appreciate you - every second of the day - for everything that you do for me and Mommy.

For looking like a tiger when you try to sleep despite my round-the-clock cries

For trying to keep it together and smile despite sleepless days and nights

For tirelessly washing my bottles

For celebrating with me on my first month 

For hushing me to sleep late at night even if you have to work early the next day

For changing my diaper whenever I wee or poop... with a pooping face like this, I know you can't resist!

For making me smile

For being our driver, sweet lover

For doing all the house chores

For always wanting to give the best to me

For going beyond your limits

For always wanting to become a better man, husband, and more importantly, father

For loving me unconditionally 

I look up to you, Daddy!

Cheers to your first Father's Day!  You are nailing it!  Mommy and I love you so much!

Little peanuts have wishes and prayers too!
God granted mine when He gave me to you!
