Letters to my boys on Joel’s first Father’s Day:
Your daddy loved you long before you were born.
In fact, I think he let himself love you before I even could. He just could not wait to meet you.
He never dealt with many babies before and I knew he was nervous, but he took to fatherhood like he was born to do it. He was the first one to change your diapers.
The first night you were alive he stayed up most of the night with me just to stare at your face and make sure you were still breathing.
He so clearly adores you.
I’m pretty sure you adore him too.
I’m so proud of what an amazing father he is to you. If mommy’s milk doesn’t do the trick he puts you to sleep better than anyone, even me.
Your father is an amazing man who loves his family and would do absolutely anything for us. He is brilliant, creative, a hard worker, tender, loving and extremely passionate. He is my rock and I know he will be yours too. I hope you grow up to be just like him.
Happy first Father’s Day. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner to raise our son. You amaze me every single day. I absolutely could not do this without you. I can’t thank you enough for all that you do.
Nothing sexier than my man wearing my baby. I love you.
