Hey Lil, its Dad

It wasn’t long ago that I started to imagine you in my life. I would sit and think about you and how important it was for me to be ready to welcome you into the world. I would always tell mommy I wanted everything to be perfect. I needed all the puzzle pieces together. I had some of the pieces already.

Most importantly, I had your mom (its where you are now incase there aren’t any signs in there)…. who is the most perfect perfect person to make you and bring you into the world. She will also make you much smarter than I, which is important…brains are something not everyone gets. I’ll give other stuff, like the ability to laugh at ridiculous things which you and I will appreciate together a lot, just wait. You also have the most beautiful circle of family and friends. They are waiting patiently for you all over the place and will love you unconditionally. So, with all that, what was missing? I guess what I was stuck on were the things that distracted me from the truth.ย Jobs, money, homes, ……..strollers ๐Ÿ˜‰

After the news of you settled into my mind it started to make more sense. I had it all together. You were ready, and so was I. The world seems a little bit crazy sometimes when we lose our focus but when you get here I will teach you that as long as there is love waiting for you somewhere…just like now…..its perfect….and you reminded me of that in a way only you could…because a lil elephant never forgets.

Love u lil,




  1. Wow………just wonderful, You will be a great Dad, and what a lucky baby!!! (PS strollers are not that scary but those car seats, well good luck getting a kid out of one of those, just sayin…..(tried it recently and almost took out trauma scissors) thanks for sharing your life


  2. This is your Great G”pa. The slowest typist in the world. I just had to make the time and effort as slow as I am at typing to tell you what a tremendously lucky newborn you will be. And even more lucky and PROUD your great Grandpop has been made with this news from your MOM and DAD, I love you all so very much.


  3. Beautiful,Adam.
    I read somewhere that “dreams are the children of the soul”…and I’m sure you and Nicole have had this dream from the moment you said “I love you” to one another.
    When a child is born from and raised in love….there is nothing more amazing in this world.
    …and the lil elephant will be amazing for sure!
