father’s day.

with all this wonderful talk on the blog about moms and motherhood the past few days, i find it extra fitting that we get to celebrate fathers everywhere today! josh and i both feel very lucky to have such exceptional fathers in our own lives, and seeing my man take on the role of ‘papa’ in our house over the past year and a half or so has been nothing short of wonderful. especially seeing him juggle two little babes these past few weeks. :) i love this man dearly. our kids are some very very lucky ducks having him around.
happy father’s day!

    LOVE the picture xx

  7. You need to have your hubby do a guest post about being a rock star husband. I get jealous of the things he does for you. My husband needs to read about what other men actually do for their wives.

  8. This photo is perfection. It looks like he's got the juggle down already! Happy Fathers Day and Birthday!!

    Umm I always thought Eleanor was still a tiny baby until I saw this – what the?!?! Baby Samson makes her look huge! They're both adorable.

    You guys seem to be the sweetest family, and I'm sure Josh counts himself as lucky to have you three as you count yourselves to have him. You're all very lucky! Happy father's day to a brilliant dad, I'm sure!

  26. this is beautiful. he seems like an amazing dad.

  27. Happy Father's Day to Josh and Best Birthday Wishes to you Taza! Your family is beautiful.

    Fatherhood certainly hasn't caught up with his waistline yet. But then again chasing around babies keeps you thin. What a sweet family you have…
