Father's Day #2 (MR.DADDY!!!!!!)


Mark,
   Happy Father's Day. Can you believe this is already your second one? I can't!!! 
(Remember your first?)

There are MANY males who are fathers, but it takes a MAN to be a good one! Over the past year (or so) you have been more of a man then most will ever have to be.....

A little over a year ago you drove me to the hospital with the anticipation of not only becoming a father to one son but to two! For almost nine months you prayed, thought, read, and talked over and over about you becoming a daddy. There were so many emotions but you were ready!

For most becoming a dad is an amazing experience...the first cry...being there in the room....the emotions....etc. That's not the way it happened for you....that's not the storybook "becoming a FIRST time daddy" you had. You say that night in the hospital was not only the best night of your life but the worst. You were alone when the Dr. told you. ALL ALONE. You had to tell me, your parents, and my parent's the news. You were "supposed"  to be the strong  one...and you were. The word strong doesn't even do you justice. You were a rock...You had to tell us Ryder, your SON...didn't make it.
Those few days in the hospital were a HUGE growing experience for us as a couple. You demonstrated what a Godly husband, son, and father should be. It was as if a switch was flipped...you could see it on your face and in your eyes. 

There was/is a love...a deep love. 

My Mr. You are an amazing father. The daily example you set for Wyatt is outstanding. The way you show him the importance of family, the way you demonstrate your love for me, and the way you speak to your son all are a representation of you as a real man, a FATHER.

You work hard at what you do but still always have time for Wyatt. You always have just the right words to say. You always know what we I am feeling. You never hesitate to help meet Wyatt's needs, ALL of his needs. 

 You are a MAN. A Christian father...

who wants nothing but to be there for his son....
to experience ALL his "firsts"





You show Wyatt what is important in life...



You always include him in whatever you do...






You make him smile SOOOO BIG....



Babe-I love you! Thank you for being such a great daddy...I can't wait to watch you with Wyatt as he grows and even as our family expands! Thanks for being the MAN that you are!


WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!
