Daddy Time


So the other day Rachel was being really fussy and her loving Father took it upon himself to sing her to sleep. (Now, those of you who really know Mark know that he is completely tone deaf and cannot sing to save his life). But my wonderful husband, doing all that he could decided to sing Rachel to sleep. We have a little Winnie the Pooh mobile that plays the theme from Winnie the Pooh, and he not knowing the words just sang to her, going along with the Winnie the Pooh music..."Daddy loves you, and Mommy does too, yes we yes we yes we do do do do, we love you, yes we do!" Over and over again until she just fell asleep. It was so cute, and when I told him that I heard him he said that he was singing for Rachel, because she likes the sound of his voice...I can't really say much about that, but it did put her to sleep.

I am so blessed to have such an actively participating Father for Rachel. Mark has been SOOOOO wonderful with her, it truly is a blessing! It's nice to know that we can all be together for the whole summer. He is such a GREAT husband and Dad!!

I love what we learn about our husbands as they become fathers. We are lucky they only get better. I tried to relieve James of a hysterical boy the other night and he said, "no, we're in this together." And I wanted to cry bc he's awesome. Sing your little heart out, Mark!
