|Father's Day 2012 - 6.17.12|
I never questioned that you would be an amazing dad. You love your critters so much, nurturing is your nature. For the past few years, it's been tough for you to go to children's birthday parties, because you've had that lost, left-out feeling that you didn't have a kid of your own yet. Now that you are a dad, you totally shine in the role.
It's pretty safe to say that Cooper is your pride and joy. You beam when you see him - especially first thing in the morning and when you get home after a long day at work. You've always been so great at taking him and playing to give me a little "down time" or the opportunity to do those silly household tasks, like washing the dishes.

I'm so glad that you got your little boy first. Now, you are so excited and ready for a baby girl - you talk about her so much, it almost makes me sick because I'm totally not ready for another babe quite yet. I love you, and thank you for being such an awesome daddy.
PS - Cooper is so obsessed with you, he hates your working late on Monday. By the time about 6:30 p.m. rolls around and you're about an hour past "normal" he gets fussy and refuses to nap or even be happy unless he is being held, preferably outside. Once he sees your big work truck, he starts bouncing and is immediately happy again. It's sweet and sad, but definitely precious!
