Connor – Week 1

Connor SleepingConnor,

One week ago Monday I watched as you came into this world. In a fraction of a second, my world changed entirely. Nearly everything I had planned for the future changed instantly. It’s amazing to me how much of a miracle it is to watch your children being born. I sincerly hope that you are afforded that chance someday. Just not for another 20+ years, I hope.

It’s a big scary world out here. I fear that I will not be able to do enough to protect you from it’s evils. At the same time, I refuse to shelter you too much either. You should know a hardship or two. It builds character. You will think me harsh to say that, but it truly does. I dearly want to teach you to avoid those hardships, but I realize that you will want to do things your own way sometimes and that will lead to mistakes. But I will sincerely try and teach you the lessons that I learned from my mistakes.

You’re mother and I love you dearly and we’ve only just met.



P.S. I know it’s just a time for being cold now, but bathtime will get more fun later!

    What a cute kid! Looks like he takes after his grandpa. Shane, there is no parent alive more proud of their son than I am of you. You have become a good man! We love you and Ann very much. I have not met my little Connor yet, but he has a special place in our hearts as well. See you soon, Dad and Dani.
