He’s the most loving, protective, generous, engaged dad I know.

No, she makes us want to breed with JB.
LOL. Wish I would have with someone like him instead of the asswipe I did.
I love Riley’s little hands.
That is the cutest father’s day shirt you made him!

I almost shed a few tears, but then i sneezed (i’m serious!).
JB is a great dad, I’m glad that you do realize how awesome he is…your boys are going to love having him for a best friend as they get older. I know my brother and dad have an awesome relationship because of how great my dad was growing up.

Gorgeous photos, A+ daddy.
Resourceful too, what with the use of “Z” (and whatever that “i” is) in “kiss.”

Oh, what a sweet post- and I love the last picture with the baby-ish hands, and the big daddy shoulders and the father’s day 08.

Man, Dads are hot aren’t they? I mean that not so much in an “I’m hot for JB way” but more in a you’re hot for your husband and then they turn into Dad’s and you had no idea how much a man in a baby bjorn can just, do it for you.

I can’t explain why more men don’t understand what kind of amazing aphrodisiac it is when they are being good dads…. honestly, there are some days when I see mine playing with the kids it just makes me want to jump him. We should write a book.

Oh Linda! You totally turned me into one big mess with that sweet and beautiful tribute to JB. He is indeed one spectacular husband/father. And you and your boys are indeed lucky to have him in your lives!

Happy Belated Father’s Day to JB!

And you must share, what are those letters made of? (Kiss my hog!? Fantastic!)

Heh, a caption just occured to me for the first photo:

Dylan: “This dude here is my personal Sherpa.”

although its a little belated, HAPPY FATHERS DAY JB! when i see the pictures and hear the stories of your boys and their dad, im often reminded of my father. some of your pictures are eerily close to ones of myself and my younger sister with our dad. im blessed to have a wonderful relationship with my dad [aka “the dude”] and i hope your boys continue to have a great one with both yourself and jb.

i also echo everyone else’s comments as to what a wonderful tribute, linda! your boys (all 3 of them! teehee!) are lucky, indeed.

I hope it doesn’t make you mad because I do love our cyber friendship, but. . .

I have a crush on JB.

It makes me so sad not every little girl or boy can have a wonderful sweet doting father like himself.

Please tell me something, L-dog: You say all you do is aim your flash to the North + bounce the flash, but I do the same thing with my Nikon + don’t get the same results. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me your ancient Chinese secret. BTW I have a speedlight.

Maggie (born 2 days before Dyl) is meeting her grandparents for the 1st time on Friday + I need beautiful pix like the ones displayed here on this very blog that I love ever so much. :)

You know, I often look at pictures of the stuff your husband does with the boys and think, now that one, he has it right, how do i get one in that model?

I’ve read your journal since diaryland days, and seeing that you’re happy and still making me laugh, inspires me. I’m 27 now, and have someone who I feel would be a great loving husband and father. I’m actually looking forward to having kids, when I’ve been so apprehensive about it. Good for you! in a non-sarcastic/South Park way. Life is good. : )

You make me laugh. . . then you make me cry. . . . I’m thinking JB may have blinked away a few tears too. .

Your boys are doubly blessed.
