So here is a cute story... This morning in church the pastor had all the fathers stand and was saying a prayer for them. I was holding Anna Kate in my lap doing everything possible to try to keep her quiet during the prayer. She reached up, grabbed Chris' hand, looked up at him and said "Da-Da!" So precious!I love this picture!
Mom made us pose more seriously... :o)
Chris, his dad, and his brother Lee
We had a wonderful day sending time with our family to celebrate father's day. We went to early church and then to brunch at Blue Water Grill with my family (becoming a favorite tradition!). Then we all came back to our house for a little Wii bowling. After a short "intermission" and a THREE hour nap for the smallest member of the family we joined Chris' family at Smokey Bones dinner.
Chris and I are both certainly thankful for our fathers and the ways that they have provided, cared, protected and loved us through all these years. I am so proud of the father that Chris has become over the past nine months. He is amazing with Anna Kate, and watching him with her only makes me love him more!
Chris. Amy. Anna Kate. Throw in a dog and a couple a cats, and that's our little family! Chris and I were high school sweethearts and were married in 2005. Anna Kate stole our hearts and changed our lives with her arrival in September of 2007. Our time together as a family is now spent on playgrounds, playing with baby dolls, watching Sesame Street, reading board books and finger painting. My wonderful husband deals with the headaches of the stock market all day, so that I can have the privilege of staying home with our beautiful one year old. This is a peek into our world.
