Gibson, You’re Awesome!

by Byron on April 19, 2021

Gibson,

This letter is just to you.  I think you are such a special person.  I love watching you interact with the world and get excited by the world.  You are smart and kind and you find the world really interesting.  Being curious is so important.  Life is more about the questions you pose than the answers you have.

You are still my little guy.  You talk to me in a high voice sometimes.  I say “Hi, Gib” or “Goodnight Gibson.”  You respond in a high little voice, “Hi Daddy” or “Good night, Daddy.”  You are sweet as syrup!  You are getting older and bigger and it won’t last too much longer.  I’m trying to savor every second.

You are calling yourself “Little Byron” because you hear others call you that.  Last night, you told me that if you are going to be Little Byron you really need a cell phone.  Then you said that maybe that can wait until you are Medium Byron.  We both laughed.  We spent yesterday in DC with Moses and Cleo.  You really like hanging out with Cleo.  She was smiling at you and dancing in her standing thing.

You are a special guy.  You and Decker are both super smart and sensitive.  Decker is more on the cerebral side, you more on the emotional, at least for right now.  Let your life evolve as it’s supposed to.  You don’t need to change or conform.  Be you.  Feel the highs and the lows.  Know that you will be alright.  Know that a new day is always right around the corner.  Let life in, it’s all going to work out.

Love,
Dad
