My sweet +Matthew H
I can't begin to express to you how much I love you. You came into my life at a time where I didn't think I could ever trust anyone with my heart, and you have stayed by my side through some of my hardest of times, without batting an eye. You've laughed with me, cried with me, and believed in me more than anyone I know, myself included.
You don't like this whole "getting older" thing, but since I've met you, I have been so lucky to watch you grow more each year, to love you more each year. Each year another reminder of how time flies when you're having fun.
You are patient, kind, affectionate, and never stop wanting to know everything about everything, and teach everyone around you about everything you have learned. We never lack conversation.
You are a fantastic partner, a wonderful and loving father, and I'm so proud to call you our rock.
As I write this, you're patiently handling a horrid fit from our toddler that would have me pulling my hair out, but you handle it with such grace and love and as I finish this sentence, I hear the tears have stopped. Just like that, you make everyone around you happy.
I hope today leaves you feeling nothing but happy and loved as much as you have made sure that we are.
Thank you for being you. I am so grateful that you were born. You deserve to be celebrated.
Happy birthday, Pinguino. I love you.
