Happy Tuesday, friends!
Today we’re talking about fathers & daughters.
I’ll never forget the look on the Hubs’ face during our 20-week ultrasound with Little O. Those magic words that the ultrasound tech spoke~ “You’re going to have…a daughter!!”~ changed our lives forever. I tore my eyes away from the screen to look at the Hubs. Shining eyes, beaming face. Pure joy.
“A daughter!” he softly exclaimed, squeezing my hand. “A little girl!”
As it turns out, we have two little girls filling our days with laughter and loudness, kisses and chaos. We love every crazy minute of having Little O & H-Berry 20 months apart. And I absolutely adore watching the Hubs & the girls build their sacred father-daughter relationship.
Reasons the Hubs is the perfect daddy for our daughters
1. He’ll always be her first love.
2. He makes her dreams come true.
3. He helps her fly.
4. He understands the importance of one-on-one time.
5. He can bring out the very best belly laughs.
6. He’s always there for them. Always.
I don’t always take the time to tell the Hubs what an amazing father he is. How the girls talk about him non-stop every day when he’s at work, and how they ask constantly when he’ll be home to play. How their faces light up when they see him walk through the door, or how Little O talked for an entire week about how the Hubs was going to take her to dance class on Monday.
Quite simply: they adore you, Hubs. And I adore you. Thanks for making such a huge effort to be that constant, reliable, loving father in Little O & H-Berry’s lives. They’ll never forget it~ and neither will I.
Counting My Kisses: This father-daughter relationship is such a special one~ and so important. At 30 years old, I talk to my dad almost every day, and I love & admire him more with every passing year. I’m so thankful for my own father, and so proud of the Hubs for how much effort he puts into being the best father he can be for our little girls. Such blessings!
