To My Brother, on His FIRST Father's Day

You've been a father for about 6 months now, and it still amazes me. I remember when YOU were still in diapers, and here you are now, changing diapers on a son of your own. Sometimes that's incredibly scary to me, and other times, it's the most beautiful thing in the world. There's this sense of wonder that has come alive in you, and it brings (happy) tears to my eyes.

And I can't wait to see all the adventures that will follow.

There's this tiny little person looking to YOU now... for guidance, for protection, for love... (and for clean socks)

And I know you're up for every challenge (and reward) that comes your way.

I can't wait for the day you get to hear him call you by your new name... Daddy.
