More than words...

Instead of writing a lengthy post about all the 174,387 amazing qualities that Mark possesses as a Dad (and husband), I'll post a tiny fraction of photos taken over the past 7 years, showing what kind of dad he is. I think it's pretty easy to tell, don't you?

Beautiful. I love how intently he is watching the kids all the time, fully absorbed in what they are doing.

That was such a sweet post Olya! My brother is truly amazing. He loves his family that is for sure! Happy Father's day Mark!

Cristin said...

great little snippets of dad :-)
And I must say, you have an impressive collection of baby/kid carriers! Do you make them? Or buy them... or some of both? ;-) I want to make a mei tei... sigh - someday!

Who would have thought my abusive older brother could have turned out to be such a great dad? It's a miracle! :)

Baby carriers, let's see... There's an old style Beco carrier (with buckles), Kleinsmekker Mei Tais, and one Mei Tai made by me (with turquoise straps). I typically don't own that many at once though, just trade/sell/buy with other mamas who use baby slings a lot :)

Lisa, wish you could see my brother then and now. It's amazing how much good maturing and family life can do!

And if I may ask you one thing, I'll ask the same thing as Laura did: can you tell me more about those great looking carriers?

Monique said...
