First Father's Day...

Happy Father's Day to my husband, best friend and daddy to my baby boy! We've been through so much together, but parenthood is certainly the best part of our adventure so far. I look forward to everything we have ahead of us. You truly are my soul mate and I can't imagine a single moment without you. Everyday only gets better and we have so much to experience with our Little Bear!

This little boy grew up to be an amazing daddy.....


1. Who is your man? Justin, Uncle Wheat, Daddy

12. Who takes out the garbage? We used to do it together...both taking a can out to the curb on Sunday nights, then he'd usually chase me back up the driveway, trying to pinch my bum--he's a kid trapped in a man's body! Now that we have little man, he takes it out by himself on Sunday nights while I'm putting Barrett to bed.

Thank you for holding my hand
and kissing my cheek.
Thank you for watching me grow
and rocking me to sleep.
But most of all,
Thank you for loving my mommy and me so much!
Happy 1st Father's Day, Daddy!
Love, your Little Bear

For Justin's first Father's Day, Barrett helped me pick out some new cookware (he really enjoys cooking and had been asking for a new pan) and a grilling cookbook! He loves to grill, so I'm anxious to try out some of the recipes! Barrett was such a good boy Saturday morning, taking a long nap while Daddy was golfing, so I was able to make a breakfast casserole for Father's Day morning and this Oreo dessert!!


  1. Glad you guys had a good day! Happy 1st Father's Day, Justin!

  2. WOW!!! I Love You! :)
    After our talk, by the pool, about your blog---sorry I am so ignorant about todays computer technology---I remembered your email back in May. It came when I was so stressed out from school and weekends full of special things happening that I hadn't read it.
    I opened your page.....and
    spent the afternoon reading and crying.
    My amazing and talented daughter did all this!!! Oh my goodness!
    I knew all of the stories...well almost, but yet I felt like there was so much more to you than I had ever dreamed. My beautiful baby girl is such a beautiful woman, wife, mother and friend... You are even more wonderful, kind and sensitive than I realized...not to mention extremely talented and so very, very special.
    Laura, I love you so much and I am so proud of you. YOU made all my dreams for you come true. Now live, laugh, love and be happy.
    Dad and I will watch over you as YOUR children fill YOUR heart with undescribable joy.
    All MY LOVE,

  3. ok, your mom made me cry, how sweet is that!!
