Sometimes you just need to treasure the ponders of your heart...

Happy birthday, Landon!

Today is a great day.  Today is the day that our daughter will celebrate in future years with drawings and clay handprints and sweet songs.  Today is her daddy's birthday.

As this is the baby blog, my birthday tribute looks a little futuristic.

Did you know that I have an amazing husband?  I do.  He's going to be an amazing father.  Of this I am absolutely confident.

This husband who is so kind to his pregnant wife will be a patient father.

This husband who thinks of his wife's comfort will be a tender father.

This husband who leans not on his own understanding will be a wise father.

This husband who makes his wife laugh till she cries will be a fun father.

This husband who dances with his wife every day will be a delightful father.

This husband who makes beautiful music will be a creative father.

This husband who gives from his heart will be a serving father.

This husband who leads by example will be a teaching father.

This husband who loves the Lord with everything in him will be a humble father.

Of this I am certain.

This man whom I have called Friend, Boyfriend, Fiancé, Husband, and Lover is going to add Father to the list very soon and I am so excited to see him flourish in that role.

To the man who teaches me to listen hard for the bass line, to look deeper at the light in a painting, to walk freely in Truth and Freedom, to give and accept grace without shame...

To the man who supplies endless refills on my water glass, who slows his walk to a snail's pace as I waddle along as fast as I can, who makes me take a nap on his birthday so I can be rested...

To the man who talks to our daughter, tells her she's beautiful, makes her dance, and plays tapping games with her and she's not even here yet....

Happy birthday, my sweet, dear, wonderful Landon.  I am so blessed to have you as my husband, my friend, and my love, and our daughter will be so blessed to know you, love you, and look up to you.

I love you s'much!
