Birthdays

I always look forward to each of your birthdays, but... then the reality of it sets in. I don't have you to wish happy birthday to. There isn't anyone to call. No birthday card to send. No e-mail. No Facebook post. Nothing. I can't even tell anyone around me about your special day. (I mean, I could, but not without an explanation. And for those that don't require an explanation, I just put them in an awkward situation where they feel like they should listen to me talk about it but they really don't know how to respond.) There isn't any party to plan (at least that I'm part of) or gift to buy. It's just a day to everyone around me except for me and I don't even know what to do with it except to silently acknowledge it.

Kaitlyn, Kennedy, and Piper - I love each of you girls so much. That has never changed nor will it ever.

Kennedy, this June 5th, I hope you have the best birthday yet.

Love,

-Dad

Washington

Dearest Kaitlyn Fairchild, Kennedy Fairchild, and Piper Fairchild,


I talked to Uncle Steve yesterday. Ethan had a birthday on Monday (7/24). He is TEN years old now!

I finally moved back to Washington after enjoying several years away. I have always loved the idea of traveling. But there is a difference between visiting and living there. I wanted to really experience the places I traveled to. As a contractor I was able to "rent" my skills to a company, providing them with a service for whatever length of time they needed or until a project was finished. I sort of have two careers - I'm a certified procedure writer and a document control specialist. These jobs are very in demand and, thankfully, they pay really well. And this is how I was able to experience different states and cities. :)

My phone number has changed, too. It is now (337) 377-6919. Please feel free to call or text whenever you want, day or night.

I love you three so much! I think about you all the time.


Love,

Daddy

Holding You

As I sat here in my home office I reminisced about the times when I used to carry you in my arms. It's funny how something so small was one of those things that I had always looked forward to doing as a dad. I miss it. I miss having you on my shoulders, cradled in my arms looking up at me, and scoped over my shoulder asleep. I don't imagine you remember me holding you, as you were so little the last time you and I were together, yet I can still remember those moments so clearly.

I realize I was vague in which "you" I mean. Truthfully, I fully mean it for each of you - Kaitlyn Fairchild, Kennedy Fairchild, and Piper Fairchild. I can still distinctly recall the unique details in carrying each of you.

I love each of you so very much. I have never stopped thinking about you, missing you, loving you.

Meeeeeeerry Christmas 2016!

Some of my favorite memories were of waking up with you girls on Christmas morning and watching you opening gifts. Back then, with as little as you were, you didn't really have things you were looking forward to. So, it was more about the experience - just the joy of unwrapping gifts and the complete surprise in what the gift was.

I hope you three have a wonderful Christmas. I love each and every one of you so very much! I miss you and think of you often. I hope we'll be able to have Christmas together again soon.

-Daddy
