Father's Day Fun!

For Russell's first Father's Day, Haven and I had our first public outing to church to visit him!  And take in a fabulous service!  I have to say... I have enormous respect for families that get their kids to church on time!  Or get there period!  Ha!  And I have even more respect for single moms and spouses of church staff that have to get the kids ready by themselves!  And multiple children?  I can't imagine!  I guess I'll learn one day.  Thankfully I had Aunt Rissa's help this time, and I'm so glad I did because we definitely wouldn't have made it there on time without her!  I'm sure I'll get better with time, but I'm sure we will have lots of tardy church experiences ahead of us!  Ha!

Aunt Rissa getting in some snuggle time so I could get ready!

Dressed and ready to go!

Happy Father's Day!

He loved showing her off!  :)

Proof that I do put her down...sometimes. ;)

Sunday afternoon nap!  Russell's favorite before Haven, and even more so now with baby girl on his chest!
Getting ready for her first ride in the stroller and a family walk!

Copper makes a blog appearance!  Ready for a walk!
They are great together! :)

Daddy & his dog

Mommy & her girl!

Overall, it was a great day!  We made sure to really soak up the time together because this week is the longest, most tiring work week of the year for Russell.  So as you can imagine, that will translate into the longest, most tiring week of the year for me with a baby and no Russell!  If you want to help make this a shorter week for my hubby, go up to at 121st between Memorial & Sheridan and help them decorate for our awesome series, At The Movies!  I promise it is a lot of fun... just a lot of work/hours for my hubby!  Maybe we'll venture out and go visit him this week!  We shall see!


  1. Addison is looking at your post with me and pointing to Haven in every picture and saying "baby!" She thinks she's cute! :) Glad you made it out by yourself and a baby!

  2. you will get the hang of it in no time! just be sure to allow plenty of time for interruptions, dirty diapers and outfit changes!

  3. The picture with Haven asleep on her daddy's chest is just precious. Absolutely precious
