There is no one in this world that can make Max smile bigger than his Dad. No one has quite the right touch when playing "flying baby" and no one can make the correct sound effects during games of "broken elevator" and "dancing robot baby". Being a Dad is what Brett was made to do and it's been a blessing to witness him blossom into his role so seamlessly. I am absolutely the luckiest woman in the world.
My Dad is a brilliant storyteller and a genuinely friendly guy. I see him at parties and events making sure to talk to everyone in the room, especially the people he doesn't know. I think he talked to more of my wedding guests than Brett and I did. It's a trait I admire and try to imitate. He makes everyone feel welcome, even if he isn't even the host of the party!
Watching my Dad meet and interact with Max has been one of my greatest joys. He loves both his grandsons so much and it kills me that Max is growing up so far from his Papa. Despite the miles he still makes sure to keep up with Max through pictures, text messages and phone calls. I know that Max will get to be close with his Papa even if he lives 800 miles away.
I love you Dad. Thanks for always being there. Thank you for fostering my
He only looks like a mild manner dad and grandfather. Looks can be deceiving. He's a race car driving, flat track racing, aerobatic airplane flying, extreme sport superstar. Plus, he can build and/or fix anything! As I stated above, my husband is completely awesome so he obviously learned those awesomeness skills from somewhere! Watching my father-in-law with Max is so much fun. It's so obvious how much he loves his grandson. You have to pry the kid out of his arms for bed time or diaper changes! I am so lucky to have such a marvelous and supportive father in law.

My Favorite Fictional Dad- Danny Tanner*
Raising three young girls on his own? Admitting he needed help and allowing friend Joey and brother in law Jesse to move in (seemingly rent free)? Managing to always be cheery and positive even after working the tough gig as the co-host of "Wake Up San Fransisco"? How could you not love Danny Tanner? He's the ultimate TV Dad, always teaching his girls life lessons through situational humor. Plus, his commitment to cleanliness was impressive. I grew up wishing I could be part of the Tanner family.
