Dads Are So Special!
Eric has, from the very beginning, been an amazing dad. My favorite part of the day is when he comes home from work. He gets in front of Everett and a few seconds later, Everett realizes who is in front of him. At that point, you get the biggest, sweetest smiles from him. You can see hearts oozing from Everett's eyes to Eric's. Ok, not really, but just about. :)
I was incredibly lucky as well to have an amazing dad. Among the many things he taught us were to be honest, work hard, and be on time. Dinner was funny face time and summers were spent getting ice cream after reading a novel (and giving a book report). He is fun, funny, incredibly hard working, tactful, smart...I could go on and on.
This weekend, Eric was working overnight, so Everett and I headed up to see Grandma and Grandpa. Seeing my dad light up when Everett is around and Everett light up when Grandpa is around is very fun. (Grandma too, but this is about dads.)
We're on our way home today, and one of the things I'm really looking forward to when we get back is that initial hello between Everett and his dad.
*Follow up: When Eric got home today and exchanged hellos with Everett, it WAS the cutest greeting ever. HUGE smiles, giggles, and some really cute baby talk. This boy loves his daddy. And his daddy loves him. We are a lucky family. :)
