There are many things about Luke that I am thankful for, but one of his most amazing traits is how good of a dad he is to Eli.
I married Luke for lots of reasons, many reasons that went beyond how cute I thought he was and how much love I felt for him.
But out of all those traits that I loved about him, I never knew just how good of a dad he would make one day.
I've heard women say that watching their husband with their kids made them fall in love with their man all over again and it is so true.
I love watching Luke with Eli and I love watching Eli with Luke. They have this bond that is so special. Eli ADORES his dad.
Luke and Eli have a nightly routine that involves bath time, reading a specific book and then a story from his bible. I've tried to take over a couple of nights and Eli always tells me "NO DADA DO IT". Well ok then. I'll just go read a book or something.
Recently I tried to use a tape measure and Eli was screaming for it, I thought he wanted to play with it so I gave it to him and he immediately ran it to Luke and said "here dada mama had it" like he was doing Luke a favor by taking it from me.
I love this above picture because Eli does this when Luke holds him, he plays with the back of his hair. He never does this with me, just something he does when his dada holds him.
Watching the way Eli gets excited when Luke gets home from work, or hearing him scream "DADA" every morning when he wakes up just melts my heart
I'm so thankful for the way Luke fathers Eli. He leads our family spiritually and just does such a good job of being a day and husband.
And I must say I'm not purposely choosing topics for talk about just to use our new pics, but hey if the SHOE FITS.
