A Girl and Her Daddy

What is it about the father/daughter relationship?

Daddy can get her to giggle and laugh in the middle of a whining fit.  He pretends to be a puppy, a dinosaur, a horse, or any other thing that her little mind imagines.  He's big and warm, protective, caring, and the most important guy in Ava's life right now - just as it should be.

As time ticks by and we wonder if this baby is going to be a boy or another girl, I am finding myself pausing frequently to take in the sight of Ava and Daddy playing.  It's not going to be "just the two of them" for much longer...but Ava will always be the first born, the first (maybe only?) daughter, and there is definitely something special about that. 


  1. love this post A! esp the amazing pictures that described their relationship!!

  2. Came here because of "People I want to Punch in the Throat." This is a very nice, feel good blog. As a dad I can relate to those special feeelings we have for our daughters.
