Dear amore mio, daddy of AOI,
Today is your birthday, the day a lovely mother gave birth to the little boy I am lucky to call my husband today. My words are nonsensical to express how much I care, appreciate and love you.
Being parents has shifted our priorities. We don’t live in our bubble of two, but of three. For this reason, sometimes, I find it difficult to show you my love and appreciation as much as my heart would love to.
Know that I am blessed to have you by my side, as my husband and the father of our daughter – and future sibling.
Thank you for loving our family. Thanks to your dedication and hard work, I can stay home with AOI, focus on my writing and try to be part of her development as much as possible. I hope we can instil in her the good values we both believe are important in life: respect for humanity, education, love for oneself, family and passion for life.
Few months ago, while inside was +20* Celsius, I watched you go into the –30* Celsius outside. I saw you struggle on your bicycle towards work. I was in the comfort of our warm house wondering if you would be pushing through all that snow if it wasn’t for the happiness of AOI and I. I felt so much for you. I loved even more than I already love you. You always put us first. You are selfless, thoughtful, caring and loving. You never complain – okay, just in few occasions.
Darling, please know that, I might not give you 100% attention like in old days but I love you more than these words can show. I appreciate you every waking hour. You are the best man and father a woman and daughter can ever dream to have by their side.
I once wrote that God knows me so well he sent you to me. You always here to support and comfort me, love and care for me. I thank your mother for caring you for 9 months so that you could love me.
I love so much.
