A Father’s Love – For Mike (and Heather too)

June 21, 2009

Today is a pretty big day around here, today this little guy turns 1 month old…

today this guy is celebrating his first Father’s Day as something more than someone’s son…

and today this guy is missing his little girl…

I don’t think I could find the words to describe the thousands of emotions that I have swirling around my head right now if I sat here all night trying. I simply can’t imagine how hard today (and everyday) will be for Mike and his family. It breaks my heart that all I can do is send my love through the wires and hope that it offers a fraction of peace. 

(the following piece was written by Dawn (@kaisermommy) of KaiserAlex. If you didn’t already know, she is teh awesome and I’m so glad to call her a friend)

Sometimes, the best we can do is share a person’s experience and let them know we have their back. That while we may not how they feel, we recognize that there are days that are just going to suck beyond the telling of it.

So today we celebrate firsts. Just a very few of Maddie’s firsts from the Spohr family flickr photostream:


First time being held by daddy


First time being held by mommy


Chillin’ after the first bath


First Christmas


First Sunshine, First Car Ride


First nap when a totally embarrassing picture of Mike was taken


First Baseball Game

We celebrate all the joyous firsts with you, and stand guard over you for all the firsts to come. The Women of Room 704.

Leave some love for Mike here or over at Room 704
