Anna Kate has worked hard to make this a very special day for her very special daddy! She made him a handprint painting, a card, and a book of pictures. She learned how to say "Happy Daddy's Day" (well, actually she repeats each word one by one and it sounds more like "Hapa...Da Da...Day"). And she is currently going on a three-hour nap...which meant Daddy got a good nap too! Here are a few pictures of Anna Kate and her daddy taken at church this morning.
I do just have to say that Luke is the best Daddy in the world to Anna Kate and I know he will be to our new baby girl as well. Day in and day out, if he's not at work, he can be found giving baths, changing diapers, reading stories, having tea parties, playing at the park, singing songs, making peanut butter sandwiches, and so much more. I am also so grateful for the way that he reads the Bible and prays with and for Anna Kate. I hope our girls grow up to know how blessed they are to have such a wonderful daddy, but also that they would grow to know their Heavenly Father better because of how their daddy loves them.
Happy Father's Day, Luke!
And Happy Father's Day to a few other extremely important dads in our lives: My Dad (Anna Kate's Grandpa), Luke's Dad (Anna Kate's Papa), and my grandpa. Thank you all for being such wonderful fathers and for the legacy that you are giving to our children. We love you!
