Daddy's Girl

R helping daddy get pumped for cross fit!

R is becoming quite the daddy's girl and this mama couldn't be happier. I think it is absolutely adorable how much she loves her daddy. And M does a great job of making time with her special. We are also trying to get better at making Friday's a day for special family time, which looks like breakfast together made by dad and then a fun family outing. We have decided that once a month this will be special daddy daughter time while mommy escapes for some mommy time. So in a couple weeks I will be heading to get my hair done with a friend while they go on a special date.

But in addition to special times like these M really just loves the small day to day times with his daughter, and is good about pausing for a few moments before he leaves and right when he gets home to connect with her. They have made a habit of going on walks together with the dog and if R sees him getting the leash down and hooking Jake up she gets pretty demanding about going along. I am trying to learn the balance of finding this adorable but also teaching her that she just needs to use her "words" (signs for now) and say please when she wants to go.

I am so thankful to have M as my partner in parenting. We are definitely still growing and learning in all aspects of life, especially our parenting. But I am thankful that we are learning together and very much on the same page with each other on how we want to raise and discipline our children. I am so thankful for the strong desire M has to lead our family in a godly way and have seen so much growth in him lately.

We just got back from a morning family walk and M is off to work and I got Riley down for a nap so now this mama is going to go make some coffee and enjoy some peace!
