During the latter part of our courtship (I like that word), I wondered what it would be like for when Sam became a father. I knew he was wonderful with children, especially his nieces and nephews, and my two nieces, when they were smaller, (who are now by the way teenagers). He adored them all and yet I couldn't even imagine then that he'd be like the father he is today. He surpassed those early immature expectations by far!
Caroline just lights up when she sees her daddy whether if its him coming home from work or picking her up from church nursery (even if I'm closer she'll still walk (run is the better word) to him, or even picking her up from Ms. Leah's. I'm sad to say but she's a daddy's girl (although she chose to come to me after he first picked her up)! It warms my heart to see them together playing, singing, talking, laughing, or whatever they love doing together.
Fathers certainly have a very special role to fill in their children's lives and I'm so thankful and blessed that Caroline has the example that all of my life I had hopes and dreams for in a father for my children!
Thank you Sam for being all that you are to Caroline and me. You are such a wonderful husband and father. I could not ask for anything more.
So with it being father's day we decided to take a few family photos. Here's some of my favorites!
