happy father’s day to Husbuddy

dear husbuddy,

i heard you say the other day that you aren’t as good of a dad as you’d always thought/wanted to be. and you wished you were better at it.

and that broke my heart. because i think you’re a lot better then you think you are.

i’m here to say, i’m your biggest cheerleader. i think you’re such an amazing daddy to our children. you work so hard to provide for them. you love their snuggles and sneezes and giggles and cuddles. you melt when they say daddy and they may have you wrapped around their fingers, but you still are firm as you learn how to discipline well.

darling, you love them so well.

and i think you are even better at this then you think, for the humility it took to say that you wished you could be better. i think that longing to be better is good, we should always strive to be better at this parenting thing, since we’re such newbies. lol. (i still remember driving out of the hospital parking lot, looking at you and being like, what? they are letting us leave? we don’t know what we are doing!)

but you know what makes you a great daddy? it’s that you long to show your girls the love of our heavenly Father.

you long to be an example for them of the love that our Father in Heaven has for us. THAT is proof you are a good father. because you are seeking the example of The Perfect Father.

so thank you.

thank you for loving our beautiful girls as best you can, with the example you have and for seeking the Father daily in your love for them.

“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4

i’m so thankful to get to do this parenting gig by your side.

Happy Father’s Day love.

why i know Husbuddy will make such a good daddy

master swaddler

husbuddy has already rocked the first 5.5 months.

he is a master swaddle-er. he is a master cuddle-er. he is a master diaper changer, bathtime buddy, spit-up catcher, beatbox-to-make-her-laugh-er.

kisses with daddy working with daddy

his help and his love make him a great dad already.

cute little old ladies at our church ask me almost every sunday if my baby girl is a good girl and if their pastor JT is a good daddy.

i always answer, “yes, of course!” to both of those questions.

the reasons above though, are not the reasons why husbuddy will make a good daddy.

he will make a good daddy because he has an example of a heavenly Daddy. he has the LOVE of a heavenly Daddy who empowers him to love our little girl with a greater love then he could get from himself.

his heavenly Daddy is more loving, more patient, more gracious than husbuddy could ever be. but husbuddy has that love, that patience, that grace filling him up so that it can overflow to our sweet girl.

i’m so thankful that i have a father for my daughter who knows that he can’t be the best daddy on his own! he knows he can only do it through the power of Christ.

daddy and sophia

i know without a doubt that he will make such a good daddy when i hear him ask our heavenly Daddy to help him be a good dad.

that, my friends, makes my heart melt away. there is something so beautiful about a grown man getting on his knees. don’tcha think?


Happy 1st Father’s day, my dear Husbuddy! you’re going to make a great daddy!

fathers who inspire adventure

we went hiking a couple weeks ago with the little miss.  as i’m working on all the photos from that adventure, i thought i’d share one that reminded me of ones i have of us with our dads for fathers day. i’m so thankful that both of our dad’s inspired the love for adventure in us at a young age! it all started by carrying us on their backs.
