An Ode to Her Earthly Father

He's amazing.
He anticipates our needs.
He thinks ahead.
He is calm and level-headed.
He cleans.
He cooks.
He brings me food.
He brings me water.
He changes diapers.
He takes out the trash.
He cuddles.
He holds.
He takes her when I'm tired.
He walks with her when she's crying.
He swaddles.
He does laundry.
He helps with her baths.
He runs errands.
He tells me that I'm a good mom.
He makes me laugh.
He does more than I realize.
He takes care of me.
He takes care of her.
He loves me.
He loves her.
We love him.


  1. Beautifully written. We love all of you!!!!

  2. Awww... Precious!! No doubt my brother will make a wonderful Dad... No doubt he ALREADY is!!

    He had lots of good experience... ya know, being such a good big brother!!

    Word to Molly - There's a good chance your Dad will be a bit protective!! When you start dating, let's chat!! :)

  3. So sweet. Lucky baby girl to have both of you!

  4. By the way, Hayley. This is a completely random thought. But, do you have a recipe for the cilantro jalapeno hummus?

  5. Such a precious Daddy! We always knew he would be! And that precious Daddy is so blessed to be married to such a precious Mommy! Being a Mommy has always been my favorite job in the whole world! We love the three of you so much!!!
