Happy Father's Day

June 19, 2011
When Chris and I were dating and before we were engaged I remember a moment when I said to myself, “wow He is going to be a wonderful father!” … I remember when that thought ran through my mind that I was caught off guard.  I certainly knew that I loved him, but it was in that moment that I knew I wanted to marry him!
Years have passed and our lives have changed dramatically, but one thing remains true – Chris is certainly a wonderful father!
Chris and I had been married almost 6 years when Colton was born.  Chris has always been extra attentive to me and that was ever so true through Colton’s birth.  Chris stood at my side holding my hand and encouraging me along the entire time.  After Colton was born I remember looking over to my left and seeing Chris hover over the baby and the nurses – he was beaming when he told me everything was great!   It was the first time in 4 hours that he was not holding my hand, but it was okay because he was holding our son.

We had no idea what we were in store for and I had no idea just how wonderful of a father he was going to be!
The manner in which Colton loves him is a true testament of just how wonderful he is.  I could not ask for a better help mate!  I say time and time again that I have no idea how moms make it without good husbands.  Chris is as hands on as I am and anyone who knows him can testify to that.  He has does bedtime almost every night for the past 2 years which is Colton’s preference!  Chris has taught Colton them importance of prayer time and of family.

And now he is a daddy to a little girl – a little girl who is crazy about her daddy!  When he get home from work in the afternoons she cannot wait for him to pick her up!  She is most certainly a daddy’s girl. 
Someone made the comment about how crazy my children are over their dad, I said, “yeah you would think I was a terrible mom” and they said, “no, its just a testament to how wonderful of a father he is!” – I could not agree more!
