Magnolia's Daddy


This Sunday is Ryan's first Father's Day! I've spent the last few weeks thinking about this day and the man I'm blessed to call my husband. I knew when we met that he'd be a wonderful dad and now that he is a dad he is so much more than I could have ever dreamed him to be. He is gentle and kind, tender and loving. I feel thankful to know that the first man Magnolia loves is him. I know one day she's going to walk down the street with her tiny hand in his and she's going to feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Her face already lights up when he walks in the room. I watch the way she stares at him with a big gummy grin on her face. 


He works hard for us and because of him I'm able to stay at home with her. There is no greater gift in the world than to be his wife and her mommy. The joy in watching my daughter fall in love with her daddy is like no other. 


Before she was ours, when she was only a dream to us, he prayed for her with the strongest faith. A faith that will inspire me all of my days. 


I can still remember the moment, one of our first days home from the hospital, when Ryan was walking down the stairs with tiny Magnolia in his arms. She was crying, as she often did those first weeks at home, and she stuck out her bottom lip. Ryan said "oh no, Magnolia, don't stick out that lip, you're breaking my heart!" She still sticks out that bottom lip before she starts to cry and it still breaks Ryan's heart every time. 


He shines with pride when he talks about her. He tells her she's beautiful every day. 


 
























I fall in love with him over and over again as I watch him love her. They are an answer to my fiercest prayers and I'll always be thanking the Lord above for them. 

Happy Father's Day Ryan! You truly are the very best daddy, and husband, and best friend. Thank you for all you do for us. We love you.
