Happy Fathers Day!

Today is THE day. Our very first Father's Day as, well... you know - fathers.

On Thursday we received our first Father's Day card from the Carnevali-Oliver family. It was addressed to "Popi's Plural" :) Thank God I took two years of Spanish and could tell that the front said "A joyful wish on Father's Day".
I'll be honest.
Two years of Spanish and I can only say, "My name is.." and "the bathroom". You really can't do much in life with 'my name is the bathroom' (which, by the way is, 'mi nombre es el cuarto de baƱo'), trust me - I've tried :(

There was translation on the back :)

On Friday, we received the cutest "First Father's Day" card from Mary Cay and the M2 clan.

So, with multiple cards received, I still forgot to send Fazha the card I bought for him last week. And its not like I forgot I bought it or thought it went in the post when it didn't... I saw it 4 times each day as it was in my laptop bag. So every time I took my computer out and put it back it, it was staring back at me, and each time I thought, I'll get to this in just a minute. My only excuse is that I know have "daddy brain" and can still use the 'sleep deprivation' card. Are you buying this, Fazha? I hope so!

On Friday, Kensington's school did the sweetest thing - they had Kensi make two Father's day paintings/cards for us. One for "Daddy" and one for "Papa". Mine said, "Papa, I love you - for all that you do. I'll kiss you and hug you 'cause you love me too. You feed me and need me to teach you to play. So smile 'cause I love you on this Father's day.

And, she happened to give us the BEST gift ever this weekend. We can't tell you what it is... but you can see for yourself.

I'm new to your blog, but I just wanted to say that your daughter is ADORABLE!! The video made me anxious to have more babies to experience all those incredible "firsts" once again. Thanks!

Wow - what an exciting milestone on your first Father's Day!!!!!!!! I LOVE this song, btw - and I always think of my kids when I hear it. I totally teared up watching this sweet video. She's gotten so big and is perfectly beautiful! Matteo is in the pre-crawl stage - pulling himself up on all fours and doing a crazy sort of diagonal lunge. Won't be long now.

Hope you guys are well! xo
