We had a great first Father's Day on which Cason was honored, thanks to Madeleine. We spent Father's Day Eve (ha) in Cypress with the Deilys. Mexican food and margaritas, decadent dessert, made by yours truly ;) and some swimming was a perfect recipe for a lovely Saturday evening. To honor my dad I made him a bowl with lots of things that he says written all around it. Spanish nuggets of wisdom, family inside jokes...just little things here and there.
Our actual Father's Day was pretty low-key. We had a great Sunday at church. Madeleine even let some poop somehow get on her sweet church dress. Thankfully we were on the shuttle back to offsite parking when we wiped the little nugget off her back. Thankfully, that was not the only Father's Day surprise. We went home for some naps, and Madeleine and I ran some errands to let her Dad have some time with Rory while he won the U.S. Open. We had a family trip to the city pool right by our house. Look at how Madeleine just loves her daddy!
It was nearly bedtime when we got home and we realized we forgot to lower Madeleine's crib mattress. As I was nursing her, we agreed it could wait one more night. I put her down and she did her usual talking/fussing to sleep, and then it got quiet. I peeked in on her and the child was STANDING UP. She was surveying her room with a look on her face of absolute pride but utter confusion as well. "Wow! Look at me! But...now what?" I got Cason to come look, and we quickly went in her room to celebrate, and move the mattress down. That little chunk had her own gift to give her daddy, and he was so proud.
I love this video - at the end she shows us just how she did it!
I love you, Cason White. Thanks for being such a wonderful daddy to our baby girl.
