Someone once said that mother’s become mothers the moment they find out they are pregnant. They have nine months to bond with their baby. Fathers on the other hand, usually need a little more time. I have been absolutely awed by the amount of love Evan has for Sophia. It seemed to me that their love affair took some time to blossom but it is well earned.
In my wildest dreams I couldn’t imagine such a quiet, graceful love but one where feelings flow freely without abandon. You won’t hear him exclaiming his feelings loudly or often, but it is his actions that speak louder than words. It is in the way he looks at her when she is not looking and in the way he makes her laugh, delighting in her mischievous nature and in the way he stops by the family room every morning to say he’s heading out to work. I couldn’t dream of a better father for Sophia.
