This past weekend was the end of the baseball season for Aaron, the boys were disappointed as they were really hoping his team would make it to the championship again this year. I got a little creative and made the kiddos shirts and Gracie a dress with Aaron’s number on it. The boys were so so proud to wear 23 and absolutely loved matching their dad. They would wear the shirts everyday if I let them!
The boys wanting to match daddy’s number is simply an outward sign of their admiration for him. They are his number one fans on and off the field. As soon as Aaron walks through the door after work the boys leap with excitement and run around like crazy little men.
Gracie who is usually in her bouncy as I am quickly trying to throw dinner together, gets a big smile on her face and literally begins to jump for joy. She has a huge smile for daddy whenever she sees him, even if he is sleeping her face lights up at 3:00am as I try to get her back to sleep.
When Aaron is home the boys are at his heels, whether it is weeding the garden, working on a project or mowing the lawn. It never gets old watching them follow Aaron like little ducklings the entire time he mows with their toy mowers.
It has been amazing to watch my husband become the father to our children. The love and joy he brings to our children has blessed their lives and has also certainly blessed mine!
