Happy Father’s Day to our amazing twin husbands, Matt and Mike! We would like to take the time to say how much we love you and what amazing fathers you have both become.
Michael – Happy First Fathers Day!!! It’s bittersweet to celebrate today because you can’t be here with us, but at the same time we are just 5 days away from you coming home! I am so thankful that you are Madeline’s dad. Even from afar she has always been your number one priority, she’s the first thing you ask about in your letters, the first one you say you love, and I know how much it must be killing you to be away. You are such a natural dad, you stepped into the role with ease and strength and we cannot wait to have you home. Don’t worry – this is just the first of many. I can’t wait to watch her grow with you – she’s a daddy’s girl already. Madeline made you a picture at daycare that is so very true, you’re not just our superhero – you’re our actually hero. We’re so proud of you, soldier. I hope the days pass quickly for you and that you get to take a moment today to read Madeline’s card, look at her pictures and know that your are such an amazing dad ever from afar. We love you very much. Happy Fathers Day!
Matt, my greatest joy in life is our son, but the second greatest joy is watching you be a father. I never had a doubt in my mind that you would be amazing at it. I will never forget the look on your face when Logan was born while tears were filling your eyes and you looked at me and kept saying, “He is here! He is ours!” while I sobbed uncontrollably – tears of joy and relief. They say when a baby is born, so is a father. Those words couldn’t be any truer for you. Although, you were in love with Logan from second I told you I was pregnant (and you finally believed it ha!). I can’t believe that in less than 5 months we are adding another precious baby to our family. I can’t wait to see you become a father again.
Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs in the world, but there has never been a time where you haven’t put in 110+% for Logan. You are always the first person to Logan’s side whether he takes a stumble or wakes up crying in the middle of the night. The second you come home from work, you immediately light up, run right over to Logan and play with him – who instantly smiles from ear to ear with excitement to see you. That pure happiness on both of your faces fills my heart right up to the top and then some. I know there is nothing, NOTHING that you wouldn’t do for Logan or me.
You truly are the best father in the world. You are Logan’s chosen protector, biggest fan, preferred playmate, and of course his favorite superhero. You are the glue that holds this family together. Thank you for everything you do for us! We love you past the moon and stars! Enjoy your day today, you deserve it! <3
Wishing all the wonderful fathers out there a very Happy Father’s Day!
