How to put into words the ways I have changed, grown, been stretched, been heartbroken, been anxious, been unsure, been positive I was messing up not just my life but another human's.
The heartbreak of parenting is that from the moment they are conceived, they need you just a little less every day. This gradual, but consistent tiny bit of independence has been breaking my heart just a little every day.
It's a good reminder that being a parent is truly being a temporary steward. It has been the biggest privilege and most intimidating responsibility.
You are our sweet prince. You are our joy. You are a gift. We love you.
