Sundays with Gage – Father’s Day addition

There are lots of dads in the world, but not nearly as many good ones.  I have been blessed in my life with two great dads, my own and Jason.  My dad was strict but fun and let me know he loved me a lot of different ways.  I grew up knowing that a good father makes a real difference in your life.  Gage saves his best smiles for grandpa.

I have also been lucky enough to marry a guy who is an awesome dad.  Different than the one I grew up with, but just as wonderful.  He changes diapers, feeds him and sings to him when that’s the only thing that will do.  I love parenting with him and can’t imagine a better dad for Gage.

I have every confidence that Gage will grow into a great man.  He’s got two perfect examples in his dad and grandpa.

  1. What a wonderful post! …except for some serious clashing between Gage’s shorts and his dad’s! LOL

    • I bought those plaid shorts for Jason for Father’s Day so he could ‘match’ Gage 🙂

  4. Isn’t it amazing and fun to see your husband become a dad? i’ve enjoyed seeing my husband and my son bond … but I can already tell they are going to butt heads when my Little One is older!

    • Some moments between them totally melt my heart. Too early to tell if they’ll be peas in a pod or not.

  5. That is so sweet and such an affirmation for both your dad and Jason. Gage is very lucky to have such great parents and granparents. I agree with Jenners that it is special when you get to see your husband become a dad. Mine took off a while ago to play some golf, but before he left he got a call from our girl, on her way to work (she’s a labor & delivery nurse) and they chatted for quite a while. That’s usually more my function with her, but I love it when she and her dad talk a while. It’s been a good Father’s Day. I’ve missed my Dad, but he’s in a better place now for sure and I had a little chat with him this morning before church. Told him I missed him. Told him Happy Father’s Day. 🙂

    • It’s sweet that your daughter appreciates your hubby. I am sorry that your dad is not here for father’s day, but you know he’s always with you.

  6. What a wonderful post. I know personally that both Jason and your Dad are great dads. I was blessed, too, with a wonderful Dad. May we never take them for granted. Great pictures!

  9. Always love the pictures of Gage and your thoughts. Both the photographs are very very good.

    I kept thinking of my dad the whole day (we lost him 9 years back). My younger brother must have felt the same way. He called me in the evening to go watch a movie with them. He said let’s celebrate Father’s Day. DAD would have wished for us to be happy and not sad thinking about him. I agree. My brother is a great dad to his son. But than all three of my brothers are!
