I know I write a post each week talking about you and how you are growing. Sometimes I even write little letters to you about how I am feeling and how much joy you have brought to my life. Today though, I want to talk to you about your Daddy. He was never good with babies. He had never even held a baby before. They were foreign and they were scary. When I was pregnant, I knew he was nervous. I wondered what it would be like to watch him hold you, how he would be with you, how he would love you. I wasn’t nervous about it, but just curious to see this foreign side of him. The day you arrived you changed him. I see it in him daily. It started as he watched you being born, haha it was something we thought he might not get thru (he sometimes faints) but he did. He didn’t even flinch. He knew that it was his time to arrive as a father. There have been somethings going on lately that are daily reminders of how thankful I am for him. We are truly blessed with each other and with you. I have grown to love him more and more since you were born. There is something so indescribable to see the man you love hold their baby. You. To see him hold you makes my heart melt. He loves you so much. You bring him so much joy and I know you have created in him an even better man than he already was. Every night he comes thru the door from work and can’t wait to hug and kiss you. His special time with you is bedtime. He dims all the lights, wraps you up tight and closes the door to the bedroom. Its just you and him in there. I can hear him singing to you thru the walls. He walks you back and forth until you fall asleep. He never wants to put you down until you are sleeping. He loves holding you. Sometimes when we are laying in bed to go to sleep ourselves, I will think he is sleeping but he will say little things like “she is such an angel.” I think he just lies in bed thinking about how cute you are. I know you will be a daddy’s girl. He is going to spoil you. One bat of your long pretty eyelashes and he is going to cave. You are wrapped around his heart and he loves you so very much. Always know that sweet little girl.
There is going to be a very special and awesome style file post later today!!! Check back!
