To Be a Dad

The most surprising thing about having Jackson has been how much I love watching Mark be a Dad. Every girl loves a man who's good with kids, but I had no idea how attractive it was when the child was your own!

Besides being our at-home diaper changing service, Mark serves as a fantastic feeder and baby vehicle. Father and son time has included some interesting conversations including extensive lessons on the art of wrestling, conversations on politics, and discussions on the best time to do dishes. Needless to say, we don't have to pay for entertainment very often.

Here are a few Dad moments captured visually:

"Daddy's little wingman" waiting to fly (via Dad's arms)

Dad willing to hold a fussy baby in public ;)

Giving mom a break

Practicing a firm grip--absolutly necessary for backyard ball practice

Dreaming of something


Taking a break

Love my boys!
Happy belated dad's day.


  1. I love the pic of Mark holding Jackson while he's alseep, awww, so sweet! You two are awesome!

  2. These picture are so adorable!!!! I can't believ how much he looks like you two already. It brings back great memories of when Addie was that little.
