you are my favorite person. in. the. world.
you are loving, and gentle, and kind.
you share with me your love of music.
you have taught me to be a master climber.
you are the best reader-of-stories i know.
your smile makes me giggle with delight.
when you leave for work in the morning, i wave bye bye long after you are gone.
and when you come home in the evening, i smile a smile so bright, it sometimes brings tears to your eyes.
thank you for being the best daddy an apple cheeks could ever ask for.
happy birthday, daddy.
