Ever since having Cohen, my life has been forever changed. He is everything to me and having my own little family now is the best thing in the world. Of course, I couldn’t have asked for a better husband and father to help raise this little boy. With as much as AJ already loves and takes care of me, I can only imagine how much he will and already does love this baby Cohen. I love watching him in this new role as Cohen’s dad and how good fatherhood looks on him.One of the greatest things in this world is watching the man who, once upon a time, was your college crush, surprised you with flowers a time or two, secretly decorated your house with Christmas lights, made you laugh til your stomach hurt, and smeared wedding cake on your face with a big frosty kiss… become the father of your first baby boy. It’s been one of the sweetest and most enjoyable experiences of my life. I couldn’t have asked for a better example of what a man and father should be and am so grateful my son has a great example to look up to for the rest of his life. AJ loves this little guy so much and I know Cohen will love and adore his dad more and more as he grows older. To my sweetest husband, it is my greatest joy to see the biggest smile on little Cohen’s face whenever he sees you and to see such adoration in your eyes each time. The love you have for this little family of ours is one of the most powerful things I’ve ever had the privilege of experiencing and I’m so grateful for it every day. I love being able to spend my life with you. Happy Father’s Day to you my love, and to the man who raised you right. And to all the fathers out there, especially to my own dad, who has always made sure that I knew I was loved, even from miles away. As well as to my father-in-law! I am the luckiest to have such amazing men in my life!
