I never doubted that Chris would be a great dad, as he as always been so good with our nieces and nephews and kids in general. But I didn't know how lucky I'd feel to have him as a partner in this whole parenting thing. Adjusting to being a family of three was tricky, but for the most part we've found our routine and are getting better at our roles as parents and as husband and wife. The older Addilyn gets, the better he gets and the cuter their relationship gets.
I love how Addilyn hears the garage door open at the end of the day and immediately starts jumping up and down, running around and waiting at the gate saying "Daddy's home!!"
I love how she knows what "It's the weekend!" means, and knows she's getting lots of extra Daddy time.
I love how you take her to trips to the forest preserve, exploring outside, to play places and parks.
I love that most of our evenings are spent putting Addilyn to bed together. Reading stories, praying together and laying in our bed. I don't take for granted that you are home most nights and don't miss many bedtimes.
I love how you started "tickle robot" with her and play the cutest game on our bed at least once a day.
I love that you're overly protective of her when she's around others, and are always wanting her to be taken care of.
Thank you for being an amazing dad to our daughter, Chris Vale. We are so lucky to have you. Happy Father's Day!
