....................................
dear sean,
and i was like
BABY, BABY, BABY OH!
like
BABY, BABY, BABY OH!
like
BABY, BABY, BABY OH!
i'm so glad you'll always be mine:)
watching you with our children takes my breath away.
every
single
time.
i love to see your smile in max's face.
your eyes in brennan's eyes.
and your melow sense of humor in everything you do.
you make me want to be a better mother.
you change diapers.
you get up with kids on sundays so i can sleep.
you jump on the tramp with both kids and keep them entertained when you can see i need a break.
you try your very hardest to keep max out of the kitchen when i'm trying to make dinner.
it is so cute.
you teach brennan how to do man things.
boxing,
mowing,
football games,
basketball,
being a gentlemen.
tools.
snow shoveling.
house cleaning.
and nose hair trimming.
you are a human jungle jim.
you show max how a woman should be loved.
you hold her.
you sing to her.
you rock her in the middle of the night.
you are wrapped around her teensy little finger.
and she loves you.
so
much.
you tell me i'm beautiful.
you tell me you adore me.
you make me feel like the most important person on the planet.
i am so lucky to have you.
but the kids are even luckier to have you as their dad.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY
my love.
i love with you.
always and forever.
xoxo
...
{the first night you became a dad}
the day we brought brennan home from the hospital.
we video recorded the entire drive home.
and i made you pull over twice on the way home to check on brennan.
we were so cheesy.
{baby max below, born Super Bowl Sunday}
you held her the entire game.
i don't remember anything about the game.
or seeing any of the commercials.
just sitting in the room with you holding baby max.
watching football.
 ...
and last,
but
very
not
least,
a happy father's day to my
father in law WILD BILL,
grandfather ryan,
grandpa dick,
grandpa casper,
GPG,
and grandpa mehr.
i am so lucky to have so many amazing men in my life:)
