A LETTER FROM PAPA

 

Dear Little Prince,

Hey there little guy! Your mother, sister, and I are so excited to meet you. Elinor can’t wait to help with “baby brudder.” She loves saying hi to you in your current residence and give you hugs and kisses and whisper how much she loves you. And she likes to visit your future room, showing everyone who is with her all of the fabulous things you’ll get to use. You’ll find out that she’s full of personality and can be a little intense, but she has the sweetest heart. She’s going to be a great big sister to you.

I am so excited to meet you too. There is so much I want to teach you, show you, and experience with you. I hope that you’ll grow to be a strong, thoughtful man. I know that your mother and I both will do our best to exhibit God’s love to you. We pray for you constantly.

I’m sure you’ll develop your own personality and interests, but I’m looking forward to teaching you all about those things I know and like. In our house, you’ll get a chance to learn about literature, art, music, food, a little sports, and a lot of silliness. I hope that wherever your interests lie, you’ll be knowledgeable and make a positive impact on the world around you.

Another important thing you’ll need to know is that the Yankees are the family team. Around here, it’s pinstripes all the way. Elinor knows how to watch sports (and eat snacks) with the best of them, I’m sure you’ll fit right in.

For now, just keep growing. We love you, Ridley. See you soon!!!

Papa
