I'm lucky to have known my husband for the past 12 years. I've seen him go through so many phases. From winning best hair in high school, to wearing a suit and tie for 2 years, on to spilling his heart out to me underneath the stars on his backyard trampoline saying that we had the real deal going on. And that he and I together were going to rock this world. My favorite phase, though, has to be this daddy phase. I can't tell in words how happy it makes me to look at Evy Rae and see that she is 100% a spitting image of her Dada. Like, holy cow, he and I created a mini-me? and we get to raise that beauty? Astounding. These past 16 months of watching Jared transform into something more than a man, but earn that title of father, has been so rewarding. He and I both agree that this parenting thing is totally the hardest thing we have ever done. But I am so glad he is the one I am raising my family with. What a stud.
