To Thomas

thomas' first day

Your mommy and I have been best friends for a long, long time. So when you were being born four years ago, your daddy and I were the only people Mommy asked to be there. It was a long, long day, and Mommy did a lot of hard work to have you.

Very soon after that, you were with Mommy and Daddy at my wedding.

And before your first birthday, you were already walking!

When you got a little bigger, Daddy turned you into a Jedi.

And sometimes you and Mommy come to visit me in Houston.


And now, you’re four! I am sorry that I can’t be there to see you today. Mommy says you had a fun party yesterday, and I hope you had a good time.

I don’t get to see you as much as I’d like to because I live so far away. But now you’re so smart, and so tall, and you look so much like your mommy. Maybe sometime I will have kids of my own – but you will always be the first person that I saw come into the world, and that will always make you extra-special.

Happy birthday, Thomas – I love you!

– Aunt Susan
