The Best Dad

I haven't had the chance to blog about Father's Day and give Batman the props he deserves. A little more than two years ago we brought home this bundle of joy.

I never knew how wonderful of a father Batman could be.  I mean I knew he'd be a great dad but to see him with our daughter warms my heart.  I love it that Batman makes up songs to Avery with her name it in.

I love it that sometimes the only way to get Avery to sleep would be to sleep him.

I love that he makes up voices for the dogs, for the dolls, and for just about any inanimate object out there.  I love it that it makes Avery laugh and she answers back.
I love that the first person he wants to see when he gets home is our litle girl. 

I love that when we are on the verge of melt down Batman is the expert of diversion and gets Avery laughing and smiling in no time.

I love that he likes to take random pictures of Avery. He may take more pictures of Avery than me!

I love that he wants to take time off to spend time with Avery.  When I don't have the time to take off from work Batman takes off and loves to spend the day with Avery. Even if it does involve jumping off the step stool!

I love that when we go to Target, he can't help but get something for Avery.

I love that Batman will color with Avery for hours. He will draw her monkeys, alligators, horses, dogs, and just about anything else she wants.
I could go on and on about what an amazing father Batman is to our girl.  He loves her more than I ever thought imaginable.  He wants her to experience everything, football games, smoking brisket with him, washing the car, riding a bike.  He plays with her, he sings with her, he tells her "I love you" at least 56 times a day, he puts her to bed late because he wans to spend me time with her.  He reads to her, gives her ice cream for breakfast and takes her to the doctor. He misses Avery when she isn't home, he misses Avery when she goes to bed, and he misses Avery when he mows the lawn.  He loves to water the flowers with Avery, have a water fight and hunt for frogs.  There isn't much he does't like to do with Avery.  I had to have an emergency C-section when Avery was born- I don't think I changed a diaper for 3 days because Batman would do it!
When I would hear someone say "I love my husband even more when I see him as a father" I didn't know what they meant.  Now I do.  I fall in love more and more everyday because Batman is an amazing father.
On Father's Day we had a great day.  We went to church.  Had a great lunch at my in laws and Avery and I gave Batman a small token of our appreciation.  We then went to my parents to spend time with my dad.  I am so grateful to have such great father figures - my Father in law and my own dad. I couldn't ask for a better father to our girl.
I love you Batman.  Thank you for being such a great dad to Avery and husband to me! I love you for not evening knowing what an amazing father you are!

Avery picked the koozie out especially for Batman. We picked the Turkey Steamer together.

I picked out this super cool watch for a super cool dad.

This is probably my all time favorite photo.  Because not only is Batman a super hero he is Prince Charming to me and Avery.

This blog does not even come close of expressing my appreciation for Batman and all he does for our family.  Avery and I couldn't do it with out him!

More adventures to come!

This post made me smile. And laugh. The stepstool pic-that was way fun.
