Father's Day

So I had the best first Father's Day. Barbie was so good to me, and having little Josh here is such an amazing experience. Barbie had a friend take this picture as a surprise (thanks Lisa Allen!). She gave me a copy in a really nice frame for my desk at school. My wife and child are just so beautiful! I LOVE this picture.

JJ also showed his love with a cute outfit. Barbie made an amazing steak dinner (filet mignon) and topped it all off with strawberry shortcake. I feel like the luckiest dad alive!

Month 1

We received a great tip: document our son's growth with a picture from the same position everymonth. Here's how our adorable son looks now. I can't even imagine him getting any bigger, but he's already outgrown his newborn outfits.
Here's JJ with his best buddy, Sock Monkey.
