First Father’s Day

It’s so funny to me how all of the holidays throughout the year that used to be no big deal are now so important and exciting for me. I mean, we’ve always celebrated Father’s Day with our families, but since we weren’t actually parents yet it wasn’t nearly as awesome as it is now. Now? I want to snap a million pictures, soak up all the memories, and enjoy every little holiday to the fullest.

I mean, this is the only first Father’s Day we’ll ever have!

We had a very relaxing Father’s Day this year and it was fabulous. We went out to eat with family, hung out, and just generally enjoyed our little family. I’m so blessed to have such an awesome partner in this crazy parenting adventure, and I can’t imagine doing it with anyone else.

As a little Father’s Day tribute, here are the top 3 things I love about Corey as a dad…

-Jackson’s whole face lights up when he’s interacting with Corey. He looks at him with an admiration that he doesn’t look at anyone else with, and it melts my heart every time.

– I love seeing who Corey is as a father. I’ve always known he was a sweet and wonderful person, but watching how gentle, caring, and just generally awesome he is with Jackson makes me love him even more.

– I love how much Corey loves our son. He gets so excited when Jackson learns something new, and it’s so sweet to see how much he clearly loves him. I could sit and watch them play together all day long – and watching Corey walk around the house with Jackson and talking to him? One of my favorite things in the world.

How was your Father’s Day this year? Anyone else want to share a few things you love about your partner as a parent? Or, if you aren’t one yet, just what you love about your partner in general?

    Thanks for sharing! I love following along with your little family. My husband and I have been married 2 years, and if it were up to him we’d already have a litter of children. He will make an amazing Dad, and I’m sure I’ll have even more wonderful things to say about him thank I already do once we have a baby. I’m just not there yet… I wish I was, but I’m still waiting for the motherly instincts to kick in I guess. If I was guaranteed a little one as adorable as Jackson, maybe it would be easier to say “lets go!” :) Congrats to you and Corey on all of your “firsts”!

    Thank you for sharing! Have been enjoying your blog for a while now. I feel like our lives are very similar (due dates very close together, first baby, little boys) have totally totally enjoyed reading your blog about pregnancy, new baby, working momma stuff & growing baby. It’s been fun. Thank you for all the fun posts & take care!
