The Best Daddy to My Monkeys.

I started this post with intentions of posting it for Father’s Day, but packing for our vacation and spending time with my babies got in the way.
It is easy to forget how lucky I am to have a husband like RJ. He is such an amazing daddy to our babies. He loves Jesus and loves our family. He gets down on his knees every day after work so that Eli can run right into his arms; and it melts my heart each time. He reads to us from the children’s bible every night and sings to both Emaline and Elijah before tucking them in. He gives our babies tubs more than I do. He knows the importance of spending time with the monkeys and changes diapers whenever he is home. He is silly with Eli and sweet with Emmy.
I always knew that he would be a good dad, but I didn’t realize that watching him being a daddy to our kids would make me love him so much more.
RJ’s sister Molly took some photos of Eli and RJ in matching La&Ca Bowties for Father’s Day. Here are my favorites:

And yes, that was Elijah shouting “Daddy!” Continue reading
