I Can't Believe It!

I can't believe it. 9 years ago today, I was probably in one of the happiest and most confused states in my life. I didn't know how I was going to be a daddy to a precious baby girl but I knew I was going to give it all I had. I can't believe that that baby girl is 9 years old today! It seems like yesterday she was a tiny baby in my arms, looking up at me with eyes that could melt the hardest of hearts. Those eyes are still there, but they are in a much bigger girl now. Time flies so fast, when she was a baby I wanted her to be a little bigger so I could play with her, and now that she's a little bigger I want her to be a baby so I can take care of her forever. I never in a million years could have imagined all the happiness and love that she has brought in my life. She makes me want to be a better person, to be the dad that she thinks that I am. :) When she was little I'd tuck her in and say , "Holler at daddy if you need anything," and not 5 seconds after I'd shut her door and walk down the hall I'd hear, "Daddy I need anything, princess needs you." It seems like a long time since I've heard that little voice holler out as I walk down the hall. While I miss those times and cherish them, I cherish every minute I have with my beautiful princess and thank God everyday that she's mine. Happy Birthday baby girl, I'm so proud of all you are and all that you have become. You are a beautiful, courteous, intelligent loving girl and I love you more than words can say. You are the wind in my sails and my sun on cloudy days. Nothing on earth makes me prouder than being your daddy. Remember if you need anything just holler...Daddy will be right there. ;)
Through the Years


    What a sweet girl you have! And such a nice post. Happy birthday to your "little one." :)

    is it silly that i started crying as soon as i figured out what that post was about? sheesh. "i need anything, daddy!" ah! and the thing about wishing they were bigger so you could play with them but then wishing they were little so you can take care of them -- we're sort of in the first part of that stage. thanks to this, i'm gonna focus on loving taking care of them.

    happy birthday, makayla!
