Mornings are my favorite

On a good day, I hear Emily chatting away to herself in her crib over the monitor.  It's usually 6:15 or 6:30.  I roll over and nudge Steve and he says, "is she ready to get up?" 

He lets me stay in bed and I listen as he goes into our little girl's room to get her up for the day.  I can just hear the happiness in the noises she makes when she sees her daddy and it makes my heart swell. She flips herself over so fast (Steve calls this her ninja move) and stands up to greet him.

They go into the living room together, he feeds her a bottle and when I come out they are sitting on the overstuffed chair together talking.  She smiles and waves at me when I come into the room, always so happy to see me, I hope that never changes.

She helps daddy make his lunch, get dressed for work, eat (and share) breakfast, and put in his contacts.  He carries her all over the house doing these morning tasks and she sits up in his arms so proud that she's daddy's helper.

During this hour, I get to watch my husband be a father and it's the best thing to see.  I drink my one cup of coffee and revel in the happiness of the morning, feeling blessed that I have these two (almost three) people in my life.

  2. Awwww! Steve is such a great husband. I'm glad him and Emily get to spend that special time in the morning together and that he is so willing to take her everywhere while he's getting ready for work. Dad of the year for sure!

  3. Ahh you had me in tears!! What is with me today?! Posts are getting me teary eyed left, right, and centre! :P This was such a sweet though. I just love that love between a father and daughter and love how proud they are to be with their Daddy's. I feel the same watching Alidia with Anthony. Beautiful!

  5. This is so great. I can totally picture Emily doing her ninja move in her crib (b/c Chloe does that too, silly girls) and waving at you from her chair next to daddy. What a wonderful way to start each day!
