Fatherhood is a role that Matt has taken on with joy and grace. He has exceeded every expectation I could have ever had. I remember dreaming about my future and how my husband would act with our kids, but I never dreamed it would be this amazing. I thank God everyday for the man that Matt is. I pray everyday that Carter grows up to be a husband and father just like him. I am so thankful to Matt's mama and hope that I can raise my son to be just like the man his daddy is. Watching him interact with our son fills my heart. This man comes home after long days at work and yet gives himself so selflessly to his family everyday. He will come home and still want to give his son a bath and put him to bed. If Carter is already asleep by the time he comes home, he wakes up early so he can see Carter before he leaves for work. The way that this man loves his children, especially the ones that are no longer with us, is a love that brings tears to my eyes because it is so beautiful to witness. I think one of my favorite things ever, is walking into a room and seeing him and Carter sleeping or laying together.
It literally melts my heart. I probably have way too many photos of them sleeping together, but I don't even care. Anybody who is around them both can feel the pure love and admiration they both have for each other. I can't wait to continue to watch their bond get stronger as Carter grows. I want Carter to stay a baby forever, but I also long for the day when I walk in and they are running around the backyard playing or inside playing hide and go seek. Matt has been a good daddy from the very beginning, with all of our boys.
This man. I wish I could accurately put into words the joy and love he has for his family. I am so thankful for him. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I will just let these pictures do the talking. There are so many photos of Matt being a dad that make my heart smile, but here are just a few of my favorites.
