It's been really fun watching Dave be a dad. I think the world of him anyway - he's a wonderful husband, my best friend and an overall quality guy - but even more so now as I watch him in the new role of dad. I have to be intentional, though, about giving him the chance. I get so used to being with Daniel on my own that I forget to share when Dave gets home.
On Sunday evening, I cleaned up the dinner dishes and let them play. It was so much fun to hear Dave making up songs and to watch them playing peekaboo, reading books and laughing together. It's also good to see how Dave interacts differently with Daniel than I do. I've heard that moms tend to hold their kids close and dads tend to push them and play rougher with them, but I had no idea the hanging upside down would come so soon!
