Letter to Tuck // Volume 2

Dear Tuck,
One of my best friends told me yesterday how good it was I am having a boy – because “the world needs more men like JB”.  I agree with her, with  300% of my heart, little baby.  
Oh sweetness, you hit the jackpot getting him as a dad.  
My throat closes up just typing this because he is such a good man.  
He is filled with surprises.  I can only imagine the good surprises that are in store for you!
He will always protect you, just as he has protected me.  
He has enriched my life ten fold.  
He has made me happier than a pig in slop.  He’s going to make you so happy.  Laugh so hard. 
He has taken me on adventure after adventure.  I’d never know this adventurous side of me without him.
You just wait- your life is going to be filled with adventures too.  You will certainly have a little gypsy soul since you have your daddy in there.
He is the most patient person I know, and I think that quality will serve us all well when we’re parents of you.
He’s going to be so proud of you.  He thinks I hung the moon when I accomplish anything. 
  I watched a video of your dad recently at his 3rd birthday party.  He was hugging everyone at every chance he had.  He never stopped smiling and he still is.  right now most likely.  He has the best nature of anyone I know.  He knows how to have fun too!  Your father is strong, tough, a leader, as manly as they come … but he is compassionate, kind, gentle, honest, slow to anger, sincere, sensitive, with a soft heart.  Those last things are just as important as the first for men.  You are blessed to have him as an example.
i love you!  – mama
ps: i can’t wait for the day when you look at a girl like your dad looks at me.
she better be looking like that back!  ha.

    this is the sweetest thing ever… and she is so right, the world needs more men like JB and he is going to be such an amazing role model and daddy.

    that is one lucky baby there growing in your belly.

    and maybe you could start a matchmaking business where you find good men for us girls who can't seem to find any good ones 🙂

    I am pretty new to your blog – discovered it last week and have popped on daily. I don't always have time to comment.

    This post gave me a lump in my throat and is one of the sweetest things I have seen or read in the longest time.
    You two are so blessed and your little boy is blessed to have parents like you!
    Much love, Bailey from  Vanilla Blonde

    "He has made me happier than a pig in slop." Girl, you are just the funniest! I seriously love these letters. You are so lucky to have found a person who makes you so incredibly happy, and vice versa I'm sure. I hope one day I find what you both share. The blessing of being such amazing partners and being able to raise a child in that environment is one I hope you will never take for granted.

    My favourite part: "ps: i can't wait for the day when you look at a girl like your dad looks at me. she better be looking like that back!" Sweetest! Please show her that when the day comes, haha.
