Andrew’s First Father’s Day

Andrew’s a quick learner. Since the middle of October, Andrew has learned how to be a fantastic Daddy to Gideon. It’s impressive to me how the man who not too far into the past wasn’t sure he wanted kids, has quickly become a willing dad that goes out of his way to make sure his little son is cared for.

Gideon was willing to do a photo shoot the other day to make a gift for Daddy.

Andrew received these pictures framed for his Father's Day.

I told Andrew that I know Gideon is too small to verbally express how thankful he is to have Andrew as his Dad. However, I’m pretty sure Andrew can tell that he has a special place in Gideon’s heart by the smiles, snuggles, and hugs he gets from Gideon.

If Gideon could talk though, I think this is what he would say to Andrew for being a great Dad to him over the past 8 months!

Dear Dad,

1 day old Daddy :)

You welcomed me into your strong arms with cuddles and snuggles. (1 day old)
