June16_IcePop

There are very few things that my husband and I disagree on, but one of them is blogging. He doesn’t want his pictures to appear online, so instead I put a picture of his daughter in this post. Everyone says that she looks exactly like me, but I see a lot of him in her. They both love talking, don’t like messes and strive for perfection. They both love hugs and kisses (on their own terms). They both can be stubborn and argue non-stop for what they think is right. They both seem to have an inborn sense of fairness and desire to set up and follow rules. And even though sometimes these two loved people in my life butt heads, they love each other to pieces. Anna is very used to having her papa available since he is the one working part time and taking care of her while I am in the office or traveling for business. But she really misses him when he is not home. In a way, she is a lot more used to separate from me than she is used to being away from her papa for more than a day. That’s why I can travel now with an easy heart even though I would have really loved to be at home for our anniversary and Father’s Day (what was I thinking setting the wedding date for June 17!) I know that Anna is in best possible hands – in the loving hands of her daddy.

PS – Happy birthday, my papa, and happy Father Day! You gave me so much when I was growing up, and I find a lot of you in me too. I still enjoy your opinions and your advice (as long as we are not talking politics :)).

It is enlightening to see personality traits from family members develop in your own children.

From the photos on your blog, I have always thought that Anna looks a lot like you.

Very sweet post. You really have a lot of special events happening all at once!

Probably not too much but I can't wait to be married. My Mom just got married on the day before Mother's Day and she is having the same thoughts.

Great post.

Blogging is also one area my bf and I disagree on too.

Happy Father's Day! It really is nice that she gets so much quality time!

That is interesting. My husband does not want to be featured on my blog either. I hope Ana's Papa had a great Father's day! He sounds like a wonderful father.

My husband has made it very clear that he does NOT want his picture to ever appear on my blog. You may remember that on his birthday I said there was a birthday in our house but the birthday person wished to remain anonymous. He is not a fan of anything blog related.

I'm pretty lucky to have a husband who likes my blog, he has become more interested in it over time though. =)

Our anniversary was Sunday (nine years!) - I definitely wasn't thinking when I picked that wedding date either!
