You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!

First Father’s Day

Letters to my boys on Joel’s first Father’s Day:

Dear Wesley,

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.


Dear Joel,

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.

  1. Happy belated Father’s Day to your man!

    I just wanted to stop by and invite you to add this post to my babywearing blog hop. Just visit my blog and submit your link! Hope to see you over there.

  2. This is such a sweet post, and that photo of your husband looking at him with his mouth open, and your baby looking back with his mouth open is priceless.

    I don’t have kids, but I know if I did, my husband being a good dad would be the sexiest thing ever.

  3. This is a super sweet post! The photo of the two of them looking at each other is adorable. It’s clear they love each other.
