Father's Day

Tomorrow is Father's Day. It will be my husband's first father's day as a dad. It makes me so sad that he won't be able to spend it with Ella. I looked for a card for him today and it broke my heart to see all of the cards that I wish I could get him. There were cards to dads from daughters. There were cards to dads from moms that talked about raising kids together. There were even cards for soon to be dads. There wasn't a card that I could find that seemed right for my husband. There was no card that expressed what a great dad he was to Ella (and still is) and how much I love him for it. I posted a picture of them together. I can honestly say that this is my most favorite picture of my husband ever! It is better than any wedding picture, engagement picture or any other picture I have ever seen of him. The look on his face is priceless. The way he looked at Ella from the second she was born was something I had never seen before. He looked so proud, so happy and so in love all at the same time; and this picture captured that look. I will never forget that look. I know that tomorrow will be hard for him, and I wish that I could make it better. I am blessed to have such a wonderful husband, friend, partner and father to my daughter. And I know that Ella knows how much her Daddy loves her and is sending him kisses from Heaven!

Happy Father's Day, Jon, I love you!


  1. It is a great picture, such a proud daddy! Big hugs! Happy father's day to you Jon! Ella knows how much you both love her :)

  2. Hope Jon had a special Father's Day! Ella is so lucky to have 2 Father's that love her so deeply. If only she could have spent the day in Jon's arms...
