Greg's finest Daddy Moments!
Greg's Top 5 Parenting Moments
#5 I went to my friends baby shower. I offered to take Jace with me but Greg insisted that he would be in good hands if I left Jace with him. I left happily and was excited to give Jace and Greg a little "daddy time". Like the untrusting wife I am, I called to check in. He tells me he is on his way to his hunting spot and Will and Sebass are watching Jace (two of our more responsible ball players). I leave the shower early and rush home. I walk in and there is Sebass feeding my sweet baby boy (with my breast milk of course!) His hand alone is bigger than Jace's whole body. Not a site a mother wants to see. Let's just say, Greg and I had a little talk, and this won't be happening again.
#4 Greg insists that I bring Jace up to the gym for his practices. He wants him to get used to the sound of basketballs dribbling and squeaky basketball shoes...no lie.
#3 I had to run a quick errand. I knew it was risky because Jace was having a fussy night. I wasn't going to be longer than 15 minutes. I asked Greg to bounce him, hold him, swing him, do whatever it takes to make him happy! I pull into the driveway and see Greg peek out the window. I walk in and Greg is standing there bouncing Jace in his arms. "Where was Jace when I pulled into the driveway?" I asked. He puts his head down and responds "in his crib". He put Jace in his crib to cry! Poor baby.
#2 Greg is keeping track of Jace's crying spells and he will be punished in suicides the day he takes his first steps.
#1 It was day 2 of Jace's life. We were still in the hospital room, it was 3 a.m., and Jace is screaming. Greg looks at me and asks, "is it too early to spank?"
But on a more serious note, Greg is an excellent father. The very best in my book. He loves Jace just as a father should love his son. It is such a joy to watch him love on his boy (maybe he will even consider a few less recruiting trips this year). They worship Jesus together in the morning and Greg says it's his favorite time of day. I couldn't ask for a better role model for Jace than my husband!
Here are some more pics of the last couple of days!
Can you believe I sometimes worry about him getting enough food??

We love bath time--all 3 of us!
