Wow. This Father's Day takes on a whole new meaning, just like Mother's Day did. This man I met 6 years ago has transformed from boyfriend, to fiance, to husband, best friend, and now a daddy to our son. You are already an amazing daddy, and just get better every day.

I love how you change a diaper. Sometimes nothing is hotter than seeing you covered in spit-up, pee, and poo all at the same time. I love how you know how feed our baby, pick out his outfits, and how you get on his play mat with him to shake a toy in his face.

I love how you sing "Baa Baa Black Sheep" and "I'm in the Lord's Army". I love how you look with a Boppy wrapped around your middle while our son sleeps safely in your arms.

I love how you want to hold Eli in public because you want to show him off. I love the smile you get when someone says he's starting to look like you.

I can't wait for you to teach him how to do all the things your father taught you, and your grandfather taught him. Like how to hunt and fish. But more importantly, how to pray, respect his momma, and be Christ-like.

I love you sweet husband, and am so proud of the daddy you already are. I can't wait to have three more babies with you. I love being your wife and your baby mama.
