Watching Husband Become Father

Brad has been the perfect husband from day one.
I have literally never had a single moment where I thought otherwise.
He has been a man of God, my best friend, my companion, my greatest love, and my everything. 
I didn't think it was possible to love him any more than I already did.
I didn't think he could become any more perfect than he already was. 

But then he became a father, and I did. I loved him even more than I already had.
He was even more perfect than he already was.
He was somehow even more attractive than he had been before.
And let me tell you, he was already the most attractive man I had ever seen.

But to see this, the first look he gave our little girl, I fell in love with him all over again.
When I watch him rock her and sing to her.
When I see him wake up in the middle of the night to change her diaper before I feed her.
When I listen to him talk to her, telling her how perfect and beautiful she is.
When I see the way he looks at me when I am holding her.
When I watch him read her a story, put her pajamas on, and get her ready for bed.
My heart melts every time.
And I fall in love all over again.

When I see the concern that he has for me when I am completely exhausted.
When he calls me on his lunch break just to check in and tell me that he loves me.
When he tells me that I'm doing a good job, even when I feel that I have no idea what I'm doing.
When he lets me rest my head on his shoulder as he holds our gorgeous baby and just sit together as a family.
When he tells me I'm pretty even with spit-up on my shirt, bags under my eyes, and my hair in a wad.
When he leads us in family prayer and scripture study.
I fall in love all over again.

We have absolutely loved being parents.
We weren't prepared for just how much we would love it.
We somehow even enjoy being up long hours with her!

And what I was even less prepared for is just how much more I would love Brad.

Watching husband become father has been one amazing ride.

Fatherhood looks good on you, my love.


  1. This post is so sweet! Seeing the man that you love become a daddy really is one of the best things that you get to experience. It made me fall in love with Chris all over again!
