Last weekend was filled with good memories including dinner with friends, a free outdoor blues concert, eating authentic Chinese food from our favorite local place, going to the movies, relaxing at the pool with my man, and of course - Michael's first Father's Day! A quick shout out also goes to my oldest niece and Goddaughter who turned three years old on Saturday; I love that little girl so much!
Obviously next year will be the first Father's Day after Michael has actually experienced firsthand what it is to care for a child of his own, but that didn't stop us from celebrating his new role as "father" as we prepare for the upcoming birth of our first son! I have already caught glimpses of my husband's emerging personality as a father and wanted to take some time to acknowledge that and celebrate him this past Sunday.
I sort of wish I had snapped some photos to document the day, but other than taking a picture of me being 32 weeks pregnant that simply didn't happen. The photo on the left is from October 2011 - about 3 months into our dating relationship (shortly after we first discussed a possible future being married to one another). I stumbled across the Proverbs quote as I searched for something to write inside his Father's Day card and immediately knew that it was perfect. I am so blessed to have a husband - and now father of our first child - that walks in his integrity
...and how blessed our son shall be because of it.
"A righteous man who walks in his integrity-
How blessed are his sons after him."
