Smitten

032

I’m not sure why I haven’t written more about seeing my Fabulous Dude become a Daddy. When I was pregnant, this was of the things I was most excited about.

And it has been so awesome.

Watching the Dude with Evalyn has caused me to fall even deeper in love with him – as if that is even possible.

It is funny because I was convinced she was going to be a boy for the first three quarters of my pregnancy. I think mostly because I pictured the Dude with a son. And now? I cannot imagine it any other way. Evalyn is Daddy’s little girl through and through and I can’t picture him without a little lady.

Evalyn loves her daddy. She has since the day she was born. She lights up as soon as she sees his face and hears his voice. And he does the same. As soon as he walks in the door after work, he showers her with kisses and makes her give him a big goofy grin. He gives her her bath most nights before bed and I love watching the moments they share together.

The Dude works so hard for our family. Sometimes, too hard. There are some days when he doesn’t see her because he’s gone before she gets up and home after she’s gone to bed. And I know he hates those days because I see him sneak into her room every night and every morning to look at her and to give her a kiss.

If there is one thing I know it is that my baby girl is so blessed to have the Dude as her Daddy and I am blessed to have him beside me on this wild journey.

Aww! Chris was like that with our first. And to this day, she ADORES her daddy. When she was a baby she actually preferred him. It was so cute.

Craig gave 98% of the baths. The kids adore him (not necessarily connecting the two, though it couldn't have hurt).
We are blessed women to have husbands who are amazing dads!
