Happy Daddy's Day.

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” ~ Forest E. Witcraft

My little boys love their daddy so much! You will read in Paxton's 10 month post, later this week, just how crazy he is becoming for this man. My little momma's boy might be making a turn towards his daddy these days. Not many people can make Pax's face light up into that beautiful smile. He doesn't give those grins out to just anyone. But Jeremy tops his list. Holden has always been daddy's little shadow. He loves him passionately and talks about him frequently throughout our days. And he lets out a dramatic gasp when our front door opens around 5:00pm. Since daddy's home, it's time for the real fun to begin, I suppose. It has been a special time to see a daddy with his boys. I grew up in a house of girls + dad, so it's been a new blessing to see a different kind of family. A family full of boys. Wrestling. Chasing. Laughing at bodily functions (yes, boys learn it young apparently). Getting dirty outside. Even making bathtime a mess. And I've loved watching Jeremy grow into his role of father. His love for his sons was immediate and whole. It's as whole and complete as love can be. I've seen it from the beginning. And I feel pretty lucky to journey through parenthood with Jeremy as my partner. I couldn't do it without him! And because I couldn't just pick one (or two) . . .

That moment when my husband comes through the door and my boys race to him, screaming "DADDY!!" is one of my favorite times of day! :)

Way to go Jeremy! You are a great Dad, and your family is beyond blessed to have you.
