Always your Daddy's girl

Dearest Lily,

Daddy was gone for two weeks training for a new job. Last Friday we went to pick him up from the airport. I couldn't wait to see the two of you together again...you have always been such a Daddy's girl:)

I dressed you in a pretty new dress and matching headband...you slept the whole way up to Portland. We picked up Daddy and drove to Red Robin for lunch. Photobucket

When Daddy picked you up out of your carseat, you looked sleepily at him like you weren't quite sure where you were..

He held you close and kissed you, and still you kept examining him and looking all around sleepily...

He kept saying "Hi, sweetie girl! It's me, Daddy!"

You touched his face and stared at him quizzically..

Finally your face lit up in recognition! Your eyes crinkled and you grinned your happiest grin- the one where your tongue sticks out as far as it can go:)

You looked over at me as if to say "What a nice surprise, Mommy! Thanks for bringing Daddy back to me!"

And as happy as I am to have Daddy home.... I think YOU are even happier:)

Loving my Daddy's girl,

Mama oxox

Reagan and I were just looking at your newest post and the pictures of Lily with her Daddy. Reagan said, "Oh Momma, she's SOOOO cute." True! Glad Lily has her main man back. :-)

Clarie is totally a daddy's girl too. I have to send him from the room when I'm feeding her because instead of eating, she just looks at him and grins. :)

Here we go again Patti. Why post such blurry pictures....oh, it's my happiness tears that make the pictures blurry. Tell Sam to give that precious little Lily a kiss from Grammi.
