Happy Fathers Day!
I always thought it would be so cool to surprise Christian on Father’s Day with some grand announcement that I was pregnant. I must admit, this is the first year that I’m totally OK not making that announcement- our hearts and hand are completely full this year!
I’ve been working really hard with Juniper on her “dada” and its paying off! I haven’t been able to capture a video of it yet because she is obsessed with phones and as soon as she sees the phone come out she can’t do anything but try to get the phone. But i promise she can say, "Dada" and it the sweetest if I do say so myself. Watching her learn and develop is way more exciting than anything else I can think of.
Last year on Father’s Day we were expecting twins and anxiously awaiting the birth of our sweetest adoption miracle. As we laid in bed on Father’s Day morning I said to Christian, “next year we are going to have three!!” As excited as we were we had NO clue what that meant. Turns out having three babies is amazing but so much work. Our kids are awesome but the demands are almost constant. We quickly realized that we needed more help than what we originally thought and we soon made arrangements for me to stay with my parents in California until the load got a little lighter… well here we are a couple months down the road and I’m still in California. The distance has been so hard and not the ideal for either of us but Christian selflessly supports me getting this extra help so I can enjoy these first few months with the babies and not go too crazy. He has been working like crazy and traveling back and forth between CA and UT every couple weeks to spend time with us. The days we send together are the best days :)
Ever since I was a little girl I dreamt of being a mom. I think I played with dolls and barbies until I was 15 and of course I always wanted to be the mom. Now I get to be a mom and Christian has been so supportive me in stepping down from my career in order to raise these beautiful souls. Every day I look at their little faces and my heart melts because I love them so much and I can’t express enough gratitude to Christian for being our family’s provider in order for me to be the mom I’ve always dreamt of being.
Happy Father’s Day to this one in a million “Dada”.
Sure love you- love your 4 biggest fans!
