Father's Day

Well, hello there, blog enthusiasts. Long time no see!
I'm making a comeback. I promise.
Here's the thing. Since getting my iPad last July, I haven't been using my laptop very much. And I hate blogging on my iPad. So no laptop = no blogging.
Anywho... I'm back, if only for this one post. At least it's a good one.

Nate -
Happy Father's Day! I hope you've had a great day - from finishing your kitchen to spending all day with Paisley to playing soccer (and scoring! and winning!) - I hope it's been perfect.
I just want to take a quick second to say thanks.
Thanks for being the absolute best daddy to our sweet baby girl. She adores you.
Thanks for working hard so I can stay home with her - you don't know how much this means to me.
Thanks for loving us both unconditionally.
Thanks for putting up with me and my crazy (this includes, but is not limited to, driving 15 minutes to Chili's just to get one small container of sauce that they forgot to put in our order and going to 3 different Braum's (I don't know how to make this plural?) to get me a chocolate mix while I was pregnant.).
Thanks for reading books, being silly and dancing with Paisley.
Thanks for letting me be me and for loving me in all of my sweatpants, bun and no-makeup glory.
Thanks for taking care of us - there is not one thing we need other than you.

You are the most important thing in my life. I love you more than you will ever know, and I know Paisley feels the same way. When Paisley was born, we had been together 8 years and I didn't think I could love you any more than I already did. Seeing you with her when she was just minutes old - my love for you exploded. Paisley is the luckiest little girl in the whole world. There isn't one thing I could ask for that you don't already provide. You are everything I have ever wanted, and everything Paisley needs.
I know I don't say thank you enough. Know that I will never feel like you understand how much we need and love you. Know that we are forever grateful for you.

And just a few of my favorite early pictures ...

Happy Father's Day to all the dads in my life - especially my dad (who I am fairly certain will never see this, as I am sure he doesn't even know what a blog is) and my father in law (for raising Nathan to be the perfect father/husband)! I love you both!!
