What the Kids Say About Their Daddy

It has been amazing to see Ty grow in confidence as a father as the years have gone by. From being nervous for me to leave him with both kids alone to watching other kids along with our two and taking the kids grocery shopping while I run long runs! He's the go to for wrestling and after nap snuggles. He is the companion on bike rides and the nail clipper. He is at all the boy scout meetings and gymnastics classes. He teaches the kids how to fix things and how cars work. He is loving and wonderful and the best daddy for Carter and Elise. I love him so much and love seeing him grow and change as a parent as our babies grow and change.
