Happy 1st Father's Day Sean!

Sean, there's no way I could possibly fit everything I want to say about you in this post. Plus, I'd lose all my readers because some super gushy displays of affection are just too much for a third party to take... (kind of like Barefoot Contessa's constant reference to her husband Jeffrey... it's just too much...) But seriously, 8 years ago, I woke up to a knock at my door and when I answered, it was you... standing there with 100 crunch bars, a dozen roses, and a bag full of groceries to make me breakfast. Chocolate and pancakes... I was impressed. Very impressed. Today, you do the same amazing stuff... you defend my honor at honky tonks, you get my name tattooed on your derrier, you'll leave the house at 11:00 pm if I mention the words, "I wish I had a Dr. Pepper", you make me homemade mozzerella sticks when I tearfully mumble to myself, "If only I had cheese sticks..."

Most importantly though, you love our tiny family with a fierce and constant love. You have fought for our precious Abiella again and again... You left the hotel at crazy hours to go find her hot, freshly made porridge.  You calmed her down and let her sleep on your stomach when she was wide awake and unaware of her very new surroundings...


You rubbed my back and poured water down my throat as I held Abiella in a very hot and incredibly packed hospital waiting room. When I was scared of court, you told me, "You're going to do great. I promise."

The first time we realized Abiella could move her legs, they were pushing off of YOUR legs. When we realized she could move her neck up and down she was straining to look at YOU. When you pat her back, she looks like there's never been a more precious moment in her entire life.

She's Daddy's little girl, through and through. You're an amazing father.  It's in your veins, it's who you are, and it's the greatest honor of my life to be a wife and parent by your side.

We Love you!!


Happy Father's Day!

If you were to look up the definition of "love" it may have a reference to this post with a picture of you and Sean beside it. You guys are quite the duo! Congratulations to you both on becoming parents.

Oh man. It was a terrible idea to read this at work. This post is so very special and true. Love it, love y'all, and Happy Father's Day Sean! xoxo

Okay, this post should come with a warning to have a full box of Kleenex on hand and loud music to drown out the crying hiccups at work... I am proud to have Sean for a son-in-law - couldn't have found someone more perfect if he had been ordered out of a catalogue.

Funny thing Susan, is that MS did order him from a catalog... at which point he showed up at her door step... :)I love this post. I think I will print it and read it often. You two are just the best.
