because we love him.


Yesterday after missing 10+ phone calls, and getting the lecture of why I even have a phone in the first place...I thought I might just drive Paul crazy enough to not come home last night. :)

When he came home he delivered me a bouquet of flowers and a package of chocolate dipped strawberries. I cried. After everything seemed to go wrong, he still managed to make everything right.

I woke up this morning to make a special Valentine breakfast for Savannah before school, and we started talking about her Daddy. I loved when she said this...

"Mommy, I mean I don't wanna hurt your feelings on Valentine's Day, but Daddy is much better at grocery shopping than you. He remembers everything, and even buys special things for my lunch."

That girls loves her Daddy, and will defend him to the end...

When I started thinking about Devin, and what he would say about why he loves his Daddy this came to mind.

Devin really hates going to nursery. He hates strangers. He doesn't give his love freely. When I say let him cry it out, and he will get use to it...Paul stays with him. When Paul goes past his classroom, and sees him sitting on a chair in the corner by himself...Paul goes back in and comforts him. I am sure Devin appreciates this.

And then there is baby Sabrina, and why she loves him. When we found out we were having her, Paul was the one that was excited. When we thought we lost her, Paul was the one that wanted to try to have another one.  When we found out we were still having a baby...he told the ultrasound tech "just tell me it's my girl!"

We are a lucky little group of people to have a guy like him around.

We love you Daddy!

Love this! There is something so special about dad's and daughters. The other day my 2 yr old looked at me with a big grin and said "Mommy. I love Daddy Best!" It did not make me feel bad because I just saw how sweet her love was for her cute Dad.

Daddy's are the best.

(I will tell you now, I don't know how to spell Daddy's. He is not owning anything in that sentence besides being the best! Grammar police? Anyone? Daddies, Daddys, or mostly likely... it's not even a word!)
