From the moment we found out I was pregnant, Ian became a dad. He was excited, nervous and happy! We got to see Liam when he was a 10-week-old fetus and we both became parents, thinking only of our baby's life and how it was changing ours. I loved seeing Ian's happiness each time we had an ultrasound, each time he saw our baby move and was updated on his health and strength...
When we found out we were having a boy, Ian immediately mentioned he had a caddy! (LOL) Ian is a dad. He dotes on all the things Liam does. He teaches Liam new tricks and plays with him each day. He has turned into an even more talented guy than he already was! It has been a wondrous thing to watch my husband transform into this person I always loved, but fell harder for as I've watched him with our baby. I never thought a tiny person like Liam could transform our lives, our outlook and our relationship.
Ian thinks about us on the job, touching base with me many times a day. Recently he told me that he tries to leave work a few minutes early so he can clear his head of the work stress and start concentrating on Liam (as he is the caretaker until I get home in the evenings). I am grateful that the two of them have that time together. Liam lights up when Ian gets home or even just walks back into the room. They have such a strong connection and it warms my heart to witness it each day. I feel so blessed to have a husband that is here with us and can support me in this parenting thing.
My favorite thing is to hear Ian stifle a laugh when I am in the other room because Liam just made a face, moved awkwardly or made a cute sound. I love that Ian can take in the joy of our baby! It's so fun to share in the marvel that Liam is. Marriage seems complete now that we have a baby. I am so happy I can share that joy with Ian. Happy Father's Day, Ian! We love you!
And not to forget the other two fathers in my life and in Liam's life... The grandpas! Thanks for all your support, concern and love you send to us always. We appreciate having such wonderful parents in our lives and grandparents in Liam's.
