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.
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.
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!
