Daddy's girl

Our little cricket is completely and totally head over heals in love with her daddy.  The world stops when he is around and the space between them becomes filled with giggles and many hugs and kisses.  From a mothers perspective it's pure joy to witness this bond especially knowing that their first moments together were filled with fear, a deep anticipation and many, many tears.

I am forever dressing my girl in tutu's, dresses and all things girly and the cricket's daddy never complains about the fact that a tutu is hard to get into a car seat or that maybe there's a bit too much pink going on for a day or that sometimes he has to pick out a hair bow for the day.  He does it with a smile.   After all she is his princess!

There is no denying that the love between a father and daughter is one full of adventure, compromise, sharing life and pure unbiased love.   To capture a moment in time when the world around was full of no one else but a father and his sweet girl is a treasure to me.

Little Miss J is always ready to give kisses to her daddy.  Always!  Even when a stern no is uttered from his lips for protection or guidance, she will get to her daddy as fast as she can and cover him with kisses as though to say sorry daddy, I know I shouldn't have done that.

 After long days at work, my tired husband always comes home with a smile on his face and joy in his voice.  He immediately gets down at his crickets level and spends the rest of the night with her.   Their time together may be filled with Elmo, a Giants game or just an hour of building something out of nothing, but it is something they both look forward too all day long.  If my day has been full of cranky moments or clinginess, it disappears immediately the minute those boots hit the front door.

Being able to watch this relationship go from fearful acceptance to a love so deep you can't break it, has been nothing less than amazing!  I am in constant awe of how much has changed between these two and how much their worlds mean to each other.   I also am so grateful for a man who provides for us in a way that allows me to witness everything from those early morning stretches to that last kiss goodnight. 
We love you Daddy!

I'm always so touched when I hear how so many of the girls who have come from China absolutely LOVE their daddies!!! Kailahni loves Doug like no other and vice versa. There nothing sweeter than seeing Lauren Davenport skip through my front door with her daddy when he comes to tutor Jacob...I could go on and on...the daddy love thing is just pure sweetness and joy!
