Christmas is four days away, and your birthday is only eight days after that. It is hard to believe that both days are approaching so quickly, and even more difficult to believe that you will not be here to enjoy either one. How could an entire year have passed so quickly and yet been agonizingly slow at the same time? Daddy can still remember the first time I got to see and hold you in the NICU. You were so tiny and looked so fragile that Daddy was afraid that you might break. Looking back, it was kind of silly, but you were just that small. Now you would be so big, probably starting to walk and definitely getting into all kinds of stuff with your Big Sister's help. Daddy can only imagine what the two of you would be getting into Christmas morning. It makes me smile and cry to think of the possibilities.
I love you and miss you very much!
