Happy Birthday, Daddy!
Today my husband turn the big 4-0! Wow, where does the time go? I remember celebrating his 30th birthday with him... we had a big party with friends, family, catered food & a dj! 4 years later he did the same for me.
We have had many ups & downs the past 22 months with welcoming Jaelyn & Abbie into our family. We've endured sleepless nights, changed a ton of diapers, watched countless episodes of Caillou, Barney, The Wiggles & Dora. Thru all of it, my husband has been truly amazing and a wonderful father.
He was never one to just go right up and pick up a baby to hold whether it be his nieces or nephews or a friends newborn. He would quietly watch from the sidelines and witness the joy on my face as I held a little one, longing for one of my own. The night Jaelyn & Abbie came home to us changed all of that. Our 2 little girls have wrapped him right around his finger and it fills my heart to hear him being called "Daddy".
We sang Happy Birthday this morning (well, the version from Sprout anyways). We gave hugs & kisses and wish him a very good day. Tonight we will have a small cake with just the 4 of us and celebrate the best Daddy on earth!
