Fathers Day & Maddux is Two Months Old

So I know this is a little late but I just wanted to wish my adorable husband a Happy First Fathers Day again! It was fun to celebrate and spoil him for the day :) First of all I got all ready, and Maddux all changed and ready and let Ty sleep in until it was time for church. He was very grateful for that. Also Maddux's first present to his daddy was sleeping through the night. Wahoo! After church it was present time Maddux got him Invictus (the new Rugby movie) and a handsome shirt and I got him the "New Dad" Willowtree and his favorite candy bar king size Milky Way. He seemed to like his presents so I guess we did good :) Then we took an awesome family Sunday nap and went to dinner at Chris and Ems after and had some delicious chicken and rice and cookie brownie dessert that I made. We hung out there for the rest of the night just chatting, relaxing and watching some TV.
Maddux and Ty after church on Father's Day!
Ty is such an amazing husband and daddy. He is way too good to me and spoils both me and Maddux. He would do anything for us and that means the world to me. He is always changing diapers, helping when he is fussy and playing with him. Daddy is also really good at making Dux smile. I can always count on Ty to cheer up our little man. He is so cute when he talks to him, snuggles him and gives him kisses. I can already tell these two boys are going to be very close and Maddux already adores his daddy. Daddy is his hero and always will be. There is something about a father son bond that I just love to observe. Thank you for supporting us and always wanting to do best for our family. I love you honey thank you for being such a good husband to me and father to our son.

We got this shirt for Dux to wear for Fathers Day it says
"My Dad Has Super Powers" and he is wearing it loud and proud.

Our first picture of Dux smiling in his daddy has super powers onesie. Sorry its a little blurry he was moving a lot. We can finally get him to smile by tickling him, singing to him or talking to him. He has such an adorable smile and it already melts my heart. This kid is going to be so spoiled. How can you say no to that face? ;)

Also happy fathers day to my dad! I love this man so much he has done so much and sacrifices so much for me and my family. I always knew I could turn to my dad, him and my mom were always there for us and so easy to go to. Him and my mom are such a good team and I love to see how much they love each other. They are such a good example of marriage and parenthood to me. Thank you dad for always being so supportive of all the things that I wanted to do. Thank you for always cheering me on in gymnastics. Thank you for being a good husband to mom. Thank you for always playing with us. Thank you for playing guitar and singing to us. Thank you for holding the priesthood. Thank you for swimming with us in our pool. Thank you for working so hard for us even when it meant working in another state for a while to make sure we were all taken care of. You are so selfless and are always thinking of others, your wife and your kids first. You are such a cute grandpa and I loved seeing you with Maddux especially your little nap you had together. Thank you for coming down to Cedar to keep me company when Ty worked on holidays. Thank you for always wanting to be with us. We love you dad thank you for being you!

And Happy Father's Day to my father in Law Ty's dad! Dave is such a good dad to his sons and daughter in laws. He treats all of us daughter in laws as if we are his own daughters. He is so sweet, one of the sweetest men I know. He has always made me feel so special and loved and a part of the family from the very beginning. I love hearing Ty boast about his dad and how much he means to him. He always talks about how his support growing up meant the world to him. He was always at the boys sporting events and other events going on throughout their lives. Dave is also a good teacher he taught his sons a lot most of all being a hard worker and taking pride in their work to support their families. He also taught them to have fun. They were all active and in sports and shared that love with their dad. He has also passed on his love for water skiing to his boys. He raised such good husbands and fathers. He is such a fun grandpa and is always willing to play with the kids. He gives the best hugs (this is where Ty gets it from). He is easy to talk to and fun to play games with. Thank you for being you we love you.

Second of all our little Maddux is 2 months old as of June 28th. I can't even believe that he has been in our lives for 2 months but at the same time I almost can't remember life without him. He is such a joy to have in our home and we love him to pieces. He is such a good baby and is so fun to just stare at. He is becoming more interactive and smiles all the time.

Some other things about Maddux at 2 months old:

*He also had to get his shots today which I was so nervous about My poor baby. He did pretty good with the first one but after the third he was so so sad and I felt so bad then when we got in the car he fell right to sleep which was good since that helps him feel better.
