I just wanted to wish a Happy First Father's Day to my sweet husband. You have blown me away with the kind of Daddy you are. You love our son in a way it never even occurred to me that you would. I love the way you just want to spend time with him, sing to him, read to him, play with him, or hold him - just that you want to be so involved in his life. I love the way you take responsibility for the spiritual health of our household and the way you pray for him every day.Thank you also for making being a mommy so much easier for me. You listen when I need to vent my emotions, and then you offer me a voice of reason which I need desperately. You always have a hug and encouraging word for me. You do the dishes and make dinner, and you even make me breakfast every morning! I would be completely lost without you, and I hope that I convey to you every day how thankful I am to God for giving me such an amazing man to partner with in this journey of parenthood.
I love you and I'm proud of the daddy you are and the daddy you will become as Elias grows older. I can't wait to see him grow up to be just like you!
