Happy 1st Father’s Day, Brad!

Happy Father’s Day, DADDY!


I cannot even begin to tell you what an amazing dad my man, Brad, has become this year. He’s my best buddy and he has truly held me up this year. I mean this is a guy who this year has done indescribable things for his family. I’ll just give a few examples:

*spending hours talking to insurance people about our claims

*cleaning up spit-up from the carpet, crib, wall, kid, dresser (you get the point)

*painting my toenails when I couldn’t reach them


*holding me through all kinds of pain

*shaking over one thousand bottles of formula

* putting together 4 bouncy seats, 2 cribs, 2 double strollers (and even looking at the directions occasionally)

*sleeping on the floor of our hospital room for 4 1/2 long weeks just so he didn’t have to leave my side

*working at his job while his 4 boys are in the NICU and later with no sleep

*eating chicken casseroles every week without complaint


*running to Walgreens in the middle of the night for emergency needs

*exchanging carts full of diapers for the next size


*blogging to keep all of you informed with the latest

*loving Christ

*praying daily for our kids and for God’s grace in raising them

*loading four boys, a diaper bag, 2 double strollers, and the rest of our “junk” in less than 5 minutes

These are just a few off the top of my head….He has sacrificed over and over out of love for his family. I really think he could win one of those “Father of the Year” awards, if I could find the time to write a 1,000 word essay! (Maybe if I find one with a trip to Hawaii involved – heheeee!)

I love you more than ever, Bradley, and it’s so precious to see our boys excited about their daddy whenever you are around them. I’m so thankful that I’m on this journey with you!

Love,
Your Jenny
