Baby Daddy

I usually find it annoying when people brag about how great their partner is (why would you be with them otherwise?) or openly profess their love all the freaking time (a little insecure, maybe?) but my husband does deserve some public recognition. He is a wonderful person. I often think how fortunate I am but really Natalie is the lucky one. This is going to sound incredibly pessimistic but our marriage is not guaranteed forever. It's not planned, expected and certainly not likely but Matt and I could always get divorced. Matt will always be Natalie's father though. As long as he's on this earth he will love, protect, provide and support her with every fiber in his being. As any good parent, he loves her infinite amounts. He has her pictures plastered on the wall in his office and his co-worker told me he talks about her all the time. Obviously any dad can adore their baby but he does so much more. He is so helpful with daily tasks. Diaper changing, feeding, putting her to sleep, getting up in the middle of the night... Anything to be there for her and help me out. I must admit that I did a good job choosing the man who knocked me up!

Awww your hubby is such a good daddy :)

A daddy that will get up with you in the middle of the night is a keeper in my book, so thankful that my hubs was there was I was too exhausted to be.

He sounds like a fantastic dad! Just when you think they can't love our little ones anymore, they show us they can. :)

Wow, it always bothered me when women do that braggy love stuff too! What you said about being insecure makes sense.

Love that sweet picture!

Sounds like you have a good baby daddy! What a cute picture of him admiring his little girl!

That is so sweet. I wish I could say the same. Chloe's dad loves her, but I'm not sure he really understands what being a father is about.

Yay for good daddies. Natalie is a lucky little girl and well, you are too!!

I think my ovaries picked out my husband, b/c I married a man who puts his family before ANYTHING and I am grateful for that every single day.

Hahaha "They guy who knocked me up" is still cracking me up.

I'm glad you found such an awesome baby daddy!

Oh I love it. My marriage and kids were planned, but there are no guarantees with it either. I work very hard to be a good wife and mother because I want Glenn to love me because he does, not because he feels obligated.

He is a wonderful Father and for that I am so thankful. I think about a few of the boys I dated and I cringe. They were fun and cute, but not the most responsible or the example I would want for my children. So glad Glenn's my baby daddy.

Lol... you are so funny. I ADORE YOU mama! This is SO sweet.

Haha...I can relate to your hate for the public declarations of love. I see it on Facebook all the time and it's almost always young teenage relatives who change their boyfriends/girlfriends as often as they change their socks LOL.

That said, I don't blame you for giving your husband some recognition. Getting up in the middle of the night?! Does he have a brother? Haha...totally kidding, I'm married, and my husband is wonderful, but I do wish he'd get up with the kids in the middle of the night from time to time.
