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.
