Jun isn't one for public exposure, but hopefully he'll understand. After all it's almost Father's Day, and it just happens to be his very first. So without getting too incredibly mushy, (because I darn well could), I will just caption some recent photos on just a few of the ways I think he is a wonderful Dad to our sweet baby girl. Thank you honey for all you do... Reise and I appreciate you more than you'll ever know!
|Real men brush hair. My poor Dad brushed my insane,|
curly, outrageously long hair for years and years. Jun's just
getting started but he's doing a fabulous job and Reise
loves watching him do it.
|Nap/Cuddle time is a necessity.|
|This might be one of my favorite moments|
of the two of them that I just got lucky
enough to walk in on...
|Jun insisted I take a nap after the long hours|
that are required as a mother, (awesome, I know). I
slept for longer than I had planned, but when I woke, I
heard Jun talking and rushed out to check on them.
|When I came out of the bedroom, he had everything under|
control and was reading Reise her very first book. She was
so intrigued and was LOVING IT! My heart melted...
(And thank you Laurie for the book!).
|Reise loves her beach chair time with Daddy |
while I get my turn stand up paddle surfing.
He always makes sure she's warm enough/cool
enough and keeps her covered with sunscreen.
|Don't panic... It's just a little splash. ;)|
He always takes her into the water when
we go to the beach and motorboats
her in circles.
|We both swear she will love the ocean, but Jun is|
planning on bigger things...
|...Like making a pro surfer out of her|
starting right now. They like to watch
surf videos on YouTube together.
|"Now see sweetie... That's Indonesia where|
you'll surf one day..." I somehow don't
think the fact that she currently looks like
a Michelin baby is going to help her anytime
soon with that aspiration. :)
|Right now she might have better luck|
in the sport of Sumo wrestling. ;)
|Our first fishing trip with her outside of the belly. Every Dad|
has to take their daughter fishing, no matter what age...
And beyond the hair-brushing, hiking, early swimming and surf lessons, feedings, storybook reading, and beach time... He does diaper changes, gives baths, takes on night time feedings, is teaching her to be bi-lingual, and most importantly, he makes her smile and laugh every single day.... AND he loves every minute of it. What more could either one of us girls ask for? And to think... It's just the beginning. Happy Father's Day Honey... YOU ARE AMAZING!
