It’s hard to believe that this is our 3rd father’s day together. (You were in your mommy’s womb on the first one.) You’re lying in your crib sleeping after a long and fun day. I just wanted to take a minute to let you know that you are such an incredible father’s day gift.
I love just hanging out with you. I love watching the way your contagious smile causes everyone in your path to do the same. I love listening to your giggles. I love watching you dance in the back seat of the car as I turn the music up.
I love watching you explore. I love the way you reach your arms out to me as I approach you. I love the way your face lights every time your eyes catch a glimpse of me. I love the way you throw your toys over your play gate so I’ll pick them up and throw them back over.
I love the way you hold my finger as I read to you. I love the way you grab your mom and I’s hands when we pray together. I love the way you push your little toy car back and forth with me.
I love to listen to all of those fun laughs you make when you crawl up the stairs…with me very close behind you. I love watching your walk around on your dino walker; laughing the entire time. I love the way you put your arm around me when I’m carrying you. That little one arm hug is so cute, I love it.
I love your hugs, your kisses, your little nose, your little feet, your stunning blue eyes, and your little teeth. I love every single thing about you.
I love you being your daddy so much.
It’s hard to believe how much you’ve grown, and all of the wonderful things you’ve done since last father’s day. I am so proud of you. There is no way I could ever put into words just how proud I am of you. But I want you to know that my heart fills like it’s going to burst with pride every day.
I am so proud to be your daddy. I love just carrying you around, and seeing all the people look at you with that “he’s so cute” look. I just want to look at them and say, “I totally agree….I’m so glad to be his daddy!”
You amaze me every day. Just watching all of the things you do. It blows me away.
I want you to know that I will always be here for you. I’ll always be your biggest fan. Your biggest advocate. Your biggest supporter.
I hope you grow up knowing how much your mom and I love you, how much God loves you, and how you were created and crafted in the very image of that God. He cares about you, and created you with a purpose. I can’t wait to see God’s purpose for your life unfold.
I’m thankful I have a front row seat.
I love the fact that you look at me like I’m your superhero sometimes. Like I could save the world if it needed saving (I couldn’t by the way, I’m a wimp.) But I love the fact that you think I can.
I can tell that you already know you can count on me. And you’re right. You can. I’m here for you 24 x 7, and I will be for as long as I’m alive. You’re the call that always gets through. You’re my man.
Thank you son for being my son. You make me a better dad. A better person. A better husband to your mommy. A better Christian.
While all of the father’s day cards, and presents are fun and nice, you are my greatest father’s day present. Every day that I get to spend with you is like a million father’s day presents combined.
You are my greatest father’s day gift.
Thank you Noah for letting me be your daddy. I love you so much. You are the best son in the whole world. It’s an honor and a privilege to be your dad.
