This Father's Day is a bit different for me. Instead of celebrating my wonderful Dad, I am also celebrating Rhea's wonderful Dad. Justin and I entered "the 'hood" (parenthood) in November and we have been scared as hell since! We are still trying to figure it all out. There have been plenty of ups and downs. And though at times I feel I have struggled with doing things my way (the right way!) and Justin's way, I am learning that his way may not be what I consider "right" but just another way of doing things. An example of his way of parenting is rigging pillows under her bottles so she can feed herself while he continues on his i-Pad.
Or when he used his nose to hold the bottle because he really needed the extra sleep
Drinking beers while walking her around the neighborhood ( I feel like Nana "what will the neighbors think!!!!)
Yelling out "She looks like the mailman!!!" to a room filled with doctors in the delivery room
But all in all he has been wonderful. Rhea has him wrapped around her little finger and he loves her with all his heart. His way is the road less traveled as a parent and I wouldn't have it any other way! I love you Justin. Thank you for being a wonderful husband and wonderful father. The past year has been a roller coaster for us both but there is no one else I would want to share this ride with. I am so lucky you picked me to be your wife and so happy Rhea has you as her father.
