This post is really late but I couldn’t let Father’s Day go unnoticed. Andrew was pretty excited for his first Father’s Day, but then he got told that he was going to have to work that Sunday (which is super rare). He was super bummed at first but then realized that meant he was going to have a four day weekend before we went home to California. He was excited to have all of that time to get stuff done around the farm before we left for a week. My aunt was in town the week before Father’s Day, so that afternoon my aunt, Oakley, and I met Andrew for lunch at a local barbeque restaurant. It was nice that we at least got to have lunch together and celebrate Andrew! Oakley made him a card and traced her hand on the back of it 😉
Even though Andrew’s first Father’s Day wasn’t that extravagant or anything special, he really deserves a lot more. He loves fiercely and unconditionally, with his whole heart. Every day she turns more and more into a Daddy’s girl and I can’t say that I blame her. She’s lucky to have Andrew for her dad, he has so much love to give and he’s always a good time. Andrew loves to act goofy and it keeps a permanent smile on Oakley’s face. Watching the two of them together makes me wonder if there’s such thing as dad intuition, just like mom intuition. There have been a couple of times where Andrew knew exactly what she wanted and I thought, why didn’t I think of that? He doesn’t give himself enough credit, but our little Oakley Lane sure is blessed to have a daddy like hers. I couldn’t ask for a better person to raise a confident, tough, sweet, and genuine little girl. You’ve stolen our hearts and we don’t want them back. We love you Andrew!
