Father's Day

Tomorrow is Father's Day. I was just reflecting on the many wonderful fathers I have in my life.

First and foremost my own father, who is one of the most incredible people I know. He's an amazing teacher, a funny guy, a sweet man, and a loving dad. He's amazing because he can literally do anything. I literally feel that my daddy can do anything. I love him so much, and hope he knows that he is a better father than I could have asked for and I am eternally grateful to call him mine....

My father-in-law is like no other. He would literally give the shirt off his back to you if you asked for it, but is more likely to give it to you before you could even ask, along with a Casey's pizza or two. He's been a great dad and example to my husband, and so accepting and loving to me. I'm glad to have him in my life. This picture epitomizes his loving nature so well.

My brother and brother in laws are such fantastic dads. They love their kids and treat them with respect and love. It's fun to see those you love loving others in such a special way.

And last but not least, the newest little daddy on the block- Mike Jacobs. He's a proud papa, and a great one to boot. At the hospital, the nurse came in and said that Drew's temperature was too low, and he needed to warm up. I'll never forget the overwhelming feeling of love I felt when I saw the sad look in Mike's eyes as he went over and caught the baby up and wrapped him in his arms with blankets all around them and snuggled him until he was back up to the right temperature. He has been a great provider and a great help to me and Andrew. I love him, and it's so fun to see him developing this other part of himself. Happy Father's Day, little Papa.
Happy Father's Day to all of the great fathers out there.
