Making Dad Smile

We have a LOT to celebrate this weekend! Yesterday I turned the big 3-0 and on Sunday we are going to toast Charles’ first Father’s Day! So much to smile about!

It’s so much fun to have been able to enjoy Mother’s Day {for me} and now Father’s Day for Charles this year. It’s a completely new experience because now WE are the parents, which is crazy because so much has changed in such a short time. It’s great to be able to celebrate these holidays as not only the child but also the parents now ourselves. It’s also only been a mere 4.5 months since our little guy made his arrival into the world and gave us the greatest gift of all – he made us his mom & dad – the best job in the world! 

New Smiles

For me, the most amazing part has been watching Charles be a father to little Brooks. He’s always been an amazing dad to Jackson, but seeing how much he loves his son makes my heart melt every single time. They have formed such a great bond over the past few months & it’s so wonderful to see how Brooks lights up when he sees Charles enter a room or when he comes home from work each night.

Also, Charles is the best at making Brooks have the most amazing giggle fits. It’s incredible {and infectious!}

And of course I couldn’t let a Father’s Day inspired post go on without giving a shout out to MY dad – I was able to spend last week with him & my mom at Bethany Beach, DE so that was a real treat. He’s the best dad {& now granddad} ever & I’m lucky he’s mine {Brooks is lucky too!}
