There's nothing quite like watching the GI who, once upon a time ... was your biggest crush ever, flipped out on one of his best friends (on said friend's birthday) for making you miss your curfew, helped you through college homesickness with 5-hour phone conversations when he had to get up for PT at the crack of dawn, proposed in the snow by moonlight, and dumped ice water on you while you were in the shower your first week of married life ... become Dada to your sweet baby. It is, quite possibly, the most fulfilling experience of my life. I'm just floored that our tiny daughter has this wonderful man as her father. A man who loves her more than I could do justice to, with my silly little words here. A man who can give her wings -- because that's super important.
I love you, my love. And your mother who raised you right.
Today, I'm linking up with Becky, of Apples of Gold, for her encouraging "Let's Be Real" feature.
