Daddy's Little Girl...

So, when I was pregnant, Jeremy and I talked about what we thought about having a little boy or a little girl. And like all men, Jeremy secretly wished for a little boy. He wanted someone to rough and tumble with, play football in the yard, fix cars, use tools, get dirty, etc, etc. So, when this sweet little lady popped out, I'm sure it made him pause (what am I gonna do now?), but I must point out, it was only a pause because the minute he saw how extremely identical IJJ was to him, his heart melted. They immediately bonded at the hospital...



And when we came home from the hospital, he insisted on being the one to introduce her to the dogs (I think I got left in the car....) It was like a proud papa introducing a new sibling to the brood, so wonderful.
Even in the early days, Jeremy found ways to bond with baby...whether it was making funny faces.... out shopping for new shoes



or swimming in the pool.

Now, they are pretty much inseparable whenever he is home. She absolutely loves him, watches him so intently and thinks he is the funniest guy. Daddy always gets smiles and laughs from baby. He's making plans for them to go camping when she's older (without mommy!) and talks about all the things they will do together (play football in the yard, use tools in the garage...etc,etc.) I've always wanted my little girl to have a wonderful, loving, supportive, involved father. It's happened (and it's why I picked him!)
Since the day they got married
He'd been praying for a little baby boy
Someone he could take fishing
Throw the football, be his pride and joy
He could already see him holding that trophy
Taking his team to state
But when the nurse came in with a little pink blanket
All those big dreams changed
And now, he's wrapped around her finger
She's the center of his whole world
And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
All American girl
