Dear Son,

I’m a little behind on these, and hoping that I can make them all up in short order, while still writing some quality letters to you.  In the past few days, your mother and I have been assembling and disassembling more furniture, building toys, washing clothes, cleaning, and putting things away.  We’ve even made a run to the city dump to get rid of some things and make sure we have space for the things that you will need.

Our doctor has decided to do a procedure tomorrow (Oct. 15th) that could bring you into this world a week earlier than we had planned, and we want to make absolutely 100% sure we are ready to welcome you home.

It’s exciting stuff, becoming a father, and a little stressful at the same time.  I am glad that I have been able to take a little breather and write a few more letters to you.  For me, this collection represents the first parental promise I have made to you, and I want to be sure that I see it through and start this relationship off right.

And that I will be able to do the same for many more.

With Love,
