I want to blog every once in awhile about all of the people in the world that love you the most and their relationship with you. So, naturally, I had to start with your Daddy. First of all, your Daddy loves you more than he or I even knew that he could. He always says that he had no idea how much he would love you until you were born. The second he saw you he got tears in his eyes and he said that you were the most beautiful girl in the world. He wanted to hold you, rock you, love you, and even change your diaper all of the time. This means something because your Daddy never liked holding babies but he liked holding you!
Here is a picture of the two of you the day you were born.
After we brought you home from the hospital, Daddy would come home from work at least five times a day to see you. He liked to snuggle with you on the couch and watch tv with you. (Or fall asleep!) Your Daddy also loves to baby-sit for you when Mommy is gone. Almost every Saturday and Sunday morning Daddy takes you to Panera to get bagels and coffee so that Mommy can sleep in. He always comes home saying the everyone there said that you were the cutest baby they had ever seen. (He is a little prejudiced)
Daddy also takes you on stroller rides and golf cart rides. He talks constantly about the sports you are going to play and how he is going to coach you. I hope you like sports baby girl, I dont think you are going to have much choice when it comes to playing or not!
Daddy also loves giving you your bath at night. (and you love it too!) He fills the water really high and lets you kick out as much water as you can. After he gets you out of the tub, he rubs you with baby lotion. He calls it "lubing you up". I love listening to him talk to you while he does it. He gives you baths by himself now all the time, but when you were really little I used to help him. Once when you were about 3 months old, Daddy decided to give you a bath by himself to surprise me while I was taking my own bath. He went really really fast so that he could have you all clean and dressed before he got out. He did and I was holding you about 30 minutes later when I noticed that something did not feel quite right. He had forgotten to put a diaper on you!!! We laughed and he said that he just "didnt think about it"!Caroline, your Daddy is so proud of you and loves you so so much. He will always be there for you in whatever you may need and you will always be his little girl.
