daddy's girl

the little sweetie pie pictured above LOVES her daddy.  when he goes away on trips out of the country she sleeps with his picture under her pillow.  the way they love each other is one of the sweetest joys of my life.  he plays pretend with her...tickles her til she screams with laughter...buys her push pops from lowe's...and they have read through her story book bible almost 3 times together. 
when eden sees a homeless person she wonders if her daddy can build them a house.
last week she got a new pad of paper to "write lists on" at the target dollar spot.  it has hearts and puppies on it. she is going to make lists of things that daddy could help people with...like give them warm clothes, or food if they were hungry.
in her mind...there isn't much he can't do.
I wish every little girl could have a daddy like him.

He got the daddy gene for sure. Has loved children his whole life, beginning with his little brother. And his love certainly doesn't end there. I think he wishes he could take care of the whole world.

Hi Abby - Would it be OK if I posted the picture from this post on my blog at http://lifetoheryears.tumblr.com with a link back to your site?

Thanks for considering it!
