Happy Father's Day!!

Jake,
I was looking for a good daddy/daughter picture for your Father's Day post. I spent hours scrolling through pictures and loved any picture of you two, there are a lot of them.. my Loves : ) I got all the way to an album called "birth" and my heart just melted when I found this one. Our daughter is only minutes old and has already been through so much.... she is premature, weighs less than five pounds, is in a crazy new environment and has been poked and prodded by a team full of doctors, nurses and respiratory therapists. She has every right to be freaked out and maybe even pissed off but she isn't. Her tiny face is as calm as can be because you're beside her. She found comfort because you were right there and she's clearly not letting you go anywhere... holding Dada's finger tight! I remember how special it was when she was so little and would calm instantly to your voice... really even before she was born she responded to you in my belly... you and orange juice ; ) It is amazing to watch your relationship grow and I feel very blessed to witness it. Happy Father's Day Jake! Thanks for being our rock.


and a note to my Daddio:
Thanks for showing me exactly what to look for... I am a lucky lady!
Happy Dad's Day.
