This is a little late, but one of my gifts to my husband yesterday was to stay off of my computer
I wanted to wish a very happy Father’s Day to my AMAZING husband! I knew he was going to be a great dad, but there’s no way I ever could have imagined that he would be this dedicated and in love with his baby boy. The way that these two look at each other and the fun that they have together is so incredible to watch. Brayden loves his Daddy. His eyes light up when Chuck walks in the room. I always thought I wanted a girl, because I wanted a little mini me, but having a little mini Chuck is so much better.
Chuck promised me that if I carried Brayden for 9 months that he would do all the work once he was out and he has totally held up his end of the bargain. He changes diapers, does the late night feedings, gets him out of the house when I’ve had a long day with him, and he still manages to find time for me. Chuck knows that while I love Brayden, I love photography too and that it’s what make me feel like me. And he’s doing everything he can to give me the time I need to continue my career and to grow as a photographer.
Chuck, thank you for being such an amazing dad to our son. That little guy already loves you more than you could ever imagine. For someone who didn’t even know how to put on a diaper 4 months ago you have really come a long way. Thank you for allowing me to continue my dream and for giving me “Drew time” when I need it. I didn’t know I could love you more than I already did, but seeing you with our son has made my love for you grow. 143, Tuck.
And also happy Father’s Day to my Dad as well! This is the man who I got my love of photography from. It was his camera that I stole for my high school photography class. He was the one who would look at my blog long before I had any other readers. He has been my number one fan from the beginning. I get a lot of my good (and some of my not so good) qualities from my Dad. I got my determination from him as well as my stubborness (which I think is a good quality, but my Mom and husband would probably disagree!). And it was probably because we are so alike that caused a lot of conflict during my teenage years, but I couldn’t be happier to be like him now. He does SO much for our family and makes sure we are all taken care of. He’s been through a lot the last couple of years and doesn’t get told thank you very often. So, I would like to say thank you to my Dad for all the little and big things he does for our family and for being the best Papa G to Brayden and Hauggy. No matter how old I get I will always need my Dad. I love you, Daddy!
