Perhaps one of the first truths that made this man interesting to me were his obvious contradictions. He's a firecracker yet his heart is tender, he's overly protective but he masks it with his silence, he is firm but he is forgiving. Every day I relish in his seeming opposites, and every day it draws me in. I may not have enough words to write about you yet, but we do have plenty of family and friends who are witness to you.

This post is actually a late Father’s Day post, because I want to share a little about why we named...

We just celebrated our girl's second (*ugly cry*) birthday party over the weekend and we decided to do something low key which she would enjoy. Initially I wasn't really sold on throwing her a party but when I realized that we're spending her last few months as an only child and soon she'll be learning what it's like to have a sibling, I thought it was a good opportunity to deposit and invest in her love tank. I've also casually been asking other moms for tips on helping their eldest welcome another sibling just to prepare.
