Did you know that I would always talk to Austin when he was still on my tummy? And one of the things that I would keep on telling him is that he is very blessed to have you as a father.
I am so happy to see how much you have grown as a man since you became a father.
I am confident that Austin would grow as a great man as he has you a role model.
I thank you for all your efforts to keep our family together and to provide for our needs. I know it is not easy that sometimes you would have to work in the evenings. But I understand that you do it for us, for our family.
I thank you for the mornings that you always have a special moment with Austin. That you will always be the first person to carry him in the morning, have a father-son hug, open the curtains, and greet “Good morning!”. You always set him on a positive start of the day.
I thank you for all the times I had to wake you up in the early hours to make milk for Austin. Some nights it may be difficult for me to wake you up. Some nights I would get half-awake random responses like – “delete password” or “sino yung nalipad?”. Creepy. But these are nights that I am happy I get to spend with you always.
Happy first year as a Tatay! I am so proud you.
You are the world’s best
Austin and I love you so much!
