Father's Day--Sunday, June 19

I've been looking forward to giving Jesse his Father's Day gift ever since I completed it a week ago.  I wanted to blog about it so badly but that would ruin the surprise since Jesse reads the blog daily.  I stole the idea from my sister.  I bought the letters and frame, took dozens of pictures, and put everything together on the last day of school. 

Jesse's breakfast request was scrambled eggs and biscuits with sausage gravy.  I woke up early enough to feed and change Jackson first, then cook breakfast while Jesse showered.  After breakfast, Jesse opened his gift.

I was really surprised how much Jesse liked it.  Though he probably doesn't love me writing this, he definitely cried and hugged me for quite some time after opening it.  I don't think either one of us could have ever expected just how much we love Jackson and enjoy being a parent.

While I will forever be a Daddy's girl and it saddens me to know that Jackson is missing out on knowing an amazing man, I really wanted today to be about Jesse.  I was able to reflect a lot on my own father yesterday, so I think I was able to focus on Jesse today.  I am so proud of how hands on and loving Jesse is with Jackson; of course, I never expected anything less.  It's hard to believe it's only been ten weeks since bringing Jackson home.  It gives me great joy to watch the two of them interact.  I know I've said it before, but it really does make me love Jesse even more. 

I'm so happy to celebrate many, many more Father's Days with my two favorite boys.
