Once Upon A Sketch - February Challenge

I have never doubted that our sons would be awesome Dads; they have a wonderful Dad as a role model. I love to see them with their children, how they interact with them, how they teach them new things and how they are not afraid to show their love for them.
This is our second son, the biggest of the four, my diamond in the rough. He is holding his youngest little boy; the smallest and youngest of our grandchildren born five weeks early. Both have been the subject of previous posts: Daring you to Scrap - July and The Color Room #142. This photo shows the enormous love he has for his little boy and it melts your heart just to look at it. My letter to my son is tucked into the tiny envelope behind the flowers.
Thank you for looking and any comments you may leave, kind regards
