It is hard to believe you will be seven weeks old tomorrow! Life has been very busy since your arrival. Your mother and I are both in school, and every single day seems to just fly by. Sadly, you have already had to embark on one unintended adventure. On August 28th your Great-Grandfather passed away. He was a great man, whom I loved very much. I will forever regret that he did not get to meet you.
We took you with us to his funeral. Long story short, you were in 5 states before you turned 5 weeks old. We even stopped in Yellowstone National Park, where your mother got a little too close to some bear cubs for my comfort. For your sake, she better not do that again. I can’t raise you by myself.
Seriously though, it has quickly become my greatest joy to see how much your mother loves you. You are a beautiful baby, and we thank God for you every single day.
