Today is your 30th birthday and I wanted to write you a note (and share it with everyone) because I am just so proud of the man you are. I know we have always joked that 30 meant we were now officially adults but I have loved watching you grow to this point. I am so excited to be here. I could not be happier to be 30 with you. We have been through a heck of a lot over the years. Watching you become and embrace being a Dad over the last 2 years though has made me fall in love with you all over again. I have always been madly in love with you but boy, oh boy seeing you as a Dad makes my heart flutter in a whole new way.
You are the most amazing Dad. I couldn’t ask for anything more. You are so caring, loving and hands on. You get home and I know you must be so tired from working but you are always right there for her. You are instantly down on the floor playing blocks or out skateboarding with her. She loves you so much. She has been a Daddy’s girl from the very beginning and there is no doubt in my mind why. You make her feel secure, protected and loved beyond belief. You have patience when I have none left. You are the perfect balance of stern when she needs it and a big, full of life kid ready to play. I could not be more proud of you. I can’t wait to see you grow again as a Father of two in the coming months.
You are my better half and I will love you now and forevermore.
p.s. How adorable is this video of Kev playing with Rowan and her little friend at the park?

I can’t quite put my finger on it but whenever you talk about your child and the one to come … or the way your husband is with your little one it brings a tear to my eye … I remember a video that you did a while back that just touched me like not other … I don’t know you but I have a lot of admiration for you!! congrats on a beautiful life and a beautiful family!!! My husband and I have been on the fence about children but you really make me reconsider!!
The sweetest post!

Jen, your post and your videos has brought tears to my eyes, you have an amazing family. I don’t know you and you don’t know me, but your happiness and love are contagious Thank you for always making me smile.
Uncontrollable kid laughter is contagious. Too cute! Loved the video. Rowan is such a lucky girl to have such a great dad. 🙂
Oh that is SO precious.
Big hugs to Kev from all of usâ€¦(Maybe some future son-in-laws. :))
Happy birthday, Kev!!
As I am awaiting my first little baby girl, seeing my hubby with her is one of the amazing things I am so looking forward to. I can’t wait to see him wrapped around her tiny little finger and for moments like your video!
First of all happy birthday Kev. You are blessed with such a lovely family and so is your family with such a caring dad and husband.
The post brought tears to my eyes because it is truly beautiful if you have the chance to experience LOVE of this kind on a daily basis. I have been a happy girlfriend of an amazing guy for 8 years mysef, but since our baby girl was born, 5 weeks ago, my love for him has become even bigger. So beautiful to see him talking to her, putting her to sleep or lying on the sofa cuddling together.
Thank you for sharing this!
I think I learned more about Kev in that video than I have in all the years reading your blog. Love it!
That is so sweet! You are a good wife.
