A Happy Father’s Day

This year was a happy Father’s Day for us, as we got to celebrate Josh, who’s a great Daddy, and enjoy our sweet baby girl.


My heart melts when I see Josh caring for Taylor.  He is such a natural and she adores him!


We started the day off at church where they had a lot of fun activities for the Dads - a car show, putting greens, (root) beers and hotdogs!  That afternoon, we all napped.  Ahhh, how we love our naps :)


That evening I made Josh, his Dad, and my parents dinner. 

Josh’s request: BLTs with a fried egg with steak fries and sweet potatoes fries on the side.  Easy enough, right?  It was YUMMY!


I got Josh a digital picture frame filled with Taylor pictures for him to take to his office.


I also made a bunch of cards for Josh and our Dads…


My Dad was thrilled to get to spend his Father’s Day holding his newest Granddaughter.




  1. Those cards are precious! How did you make those? I love the picture of Taylor looking up at your dad. So sweet!

  2. Love the cards!! Taylor is looking so alert in some of those pictures & I love the one of her looking at your dad.. precious!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
