It’s obvious to everyone in our family that Gabby already has her daddy wrapped around her little finger.
Watching him holding her, interacting with her her is one of the highlights of my life right now. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen him this happy and fufilled. When he talks to her and she smiles at him, it takes my breath away. I never thought I’d give him a daughter, I never imagined I’d be sitting on the couch and I’d hear him singing to his “sweet pea”.
She loves her daddy. She’s so comfortable with him. Everyday when he comes home from work, he picks her up and starts talking to her. She smiles and coos and gets so excited she squeels. Ah! It’s the sweetest thing I think I’ve ever seen. Eventually, she’ll get tired and start yawning. Tony will sit her on his lap and gently run his fingers over her hair. She doesn’t even fight it, within minutes, she’s peacefully sleeping on her daddy’s lap.
Last night I told him that I will forever have that image burned in my mind. And as she gets older, I’ll always look at her and remember the time that she would fall asleep on her daddy’s lap and I’ll remember just how beautiful life was.
And I pray it always will be.
