My Sweet Hunter, from the moment I found out I was going to have a precious little boy I've had so many hopes and dreams for you.
I hope that you always follow your dreams, no matter what they may be.
I hope that you have compassion for others, no matter how different they are.
I hope that you find something that you are passionate about whether it be sports or music or art.
I hope that one of your passions includes fishing and that you and your father can spend many hours together sharing this common love.
I hope that you don't want to run off every weekend with your father to fish or hunt but also want to spend time with your dear old mom.
I hope that you continue to be the happy, smiley, sweet boy that you are now, even when you become a man.
I hope that you find someone that you love with all your heart and that they love you back just the same.
I hope that you treat this person as wonderfully as your father treats me.
I hope that you learn how to cook a nice meal, sew on a button and change a tire. There are just some things that every person should know how to do.
I hope that you have a love of animals and that you and your dog Moxie are best friends.
I hope that you grow up and look just like your daddy (because I think he's a pretty handsome dude) though I'm still crossing my fingers your eyes turn green like mine.
I hope that you are never too embarrassed to give your mama a hug in public, though I know this will probably be the case during your teenage years.
I hope that you always know how much your father and I love you.
