Too Long

by Byron on December 19, 2013

Hey Decker,

It’s been so long since I’ve written a “Letter to Decker.”  I’m sorry.  I’ve been so busy.  We’ve been so busy.

You just started walking.  You had been taking two, occasionally three, little steps before plunging forward.  A few nights ago you took about eight steps from me to Mommy.  She scooped you up and screamed and danced.  Our boy was walking!

I thought it’d be a slow process until you were walking a ton, but, sure enough, when I picked you up the next day you were walking all around.  Everybody loves you at day care.  Everybody.

Life moves fast.  You’re walking.  I probably haven’t written to you in months.

But you smile everyday.  We see each other everyday.  I try to make you laugh everyday.  And I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.  You and your mom make me ecstatic.

Love you, Decker

Dad
