Just ask his kids. The first "date" we went on, before we were a family, Amanda rode on Steve's shoulders. She was amazed. He was so big to her. All she could say in her cute little voice was how huge, huge, huge he was.
The other day in the car Evan said, "Daddy you are tall. You are a giant."
And Steve said, "Why thank you young man. I am huge. Watch me flex my sexy biceps."
No, he didn't really say it, but I could see the small twitch on the side of his mouth that means something like, "You are right, son. I am huge. And someday you will be too."
Then Evan would say, "I a big boy dad. I Evan."
