Father's Day

To my husband
Who grinned every time he rested his head on my belly and got a kick to the cheek
Who sat behind me and played the guitar against my tummy so the baby could hear the music
Who held my hand through contraction after contraction and wanted to take the pain from me
Who got tears in his eyes when he saw his son for the first time
Who cradled his baby more gently than I ever thought possible
Whose diaper changing and swaddling skills will never be surpassed
Who gently lifts his son off my lap to softly walk him to his crib
Who washes bottles every night without complaint
Who I can't imagine doing this without

Happy Father's Day

And happy father's day to my own father, who taught me so many things in life, worked incredibly hard to provide for our family and continues to be a great father and grandfather.


  1. This is such a sweet post! I love how the Barrett's pictures evolve into a bigger smile in each picture--does that make sense? I bet Tim loved it!

  2. So sweet =) Those pics turned out better than the ones in the guest room. Practice makes perfect!
