The beauty of March 1st will never be lost on me. I remember holding you moments after you were born. It was just you and I in a little room for 20 minutes. I help you and you didn't cry. You just looked at me. You immediately became my favorite thing.
A year later - at our original house - we had all of our family and friends over to celebrate your first birthday. You had been your Mother and I's entire world for that first year. You were smart, obstinate, determined, and beautiful. You had remained my favorite thing.
Over the next 2 years you have become the daughter I had always dreamed of having. You're so smart I can't even understand it some days. You're kind when you are patient and you're loving when you stop and slow down. You have a warm desire to be a part of everyone's day. And you have a wonderful natural desire to explore and be interested in things. You compete. You try. You hustle. And you make me so very proud to be your Father. You are - and will always be my favorite thing. I couldn't imagine wishing a happy birthday to a more wonderful little girl. I love you so much.
Happy birthday Frank
