Good Daddies, Birthday Friends, and Tea Parties for $400, Alex

On Daddy:
I like to catch him when he doesn't know I'm watching...just him and her. The first time I met him, before I fell in love...I knew he was the kind of dad I wanted my babies to have. Today I watched him...he didn't know I was standing there with my camera. He was talking to a friend, but the whole time, I know he was thinking about her...how proud he was to have a daughter in his arms, and the way his arms embrace her just kills me. Watching him play with her, look at her, kiss her, talk to her in his widdle girl voice--it's better than watching a movie. I love the way he loves her. And I really, really love good dads. Good, involved, huggy, kissy, fill-em-up-with love dads....they're hot. And I'm glad I got one.
We went to a birthday party today at the park, and Lainey was the youngest "friend" invited, but she was still part of the gang...even got a goody bag. It was so cute to see her looking up to all these little girls like she knew she was kinda part of them. She even kept her princess hat on like she wanted to do it 'cuz the bigger girls were doing it. I'm not ready for her to be big yet. I'm not done with Baby yet.


Stay little just a bit longer, Cubby.

I moved her room around yesterday and then I just stared at it smiling that this room belongs to a baby that's mine. I have a daughter. And, we're gunna have tea parties someday real soon. Somebody pinch me 'cuz I think I'm dreaming.

beaUtiful!! I want to sit in her room with her and sip make believe tea.

yes, bretchulous is a good dad. and he wears cool shades.

Dad said...

I concur with the jackdaddy talk about Brettles! He is the best...and he understands dads and daughters. My first impression of him came when we first met. It was at Flaccos Restaurant, and we chatted comfortably...our visits were overlapping--you were finishing dinner when we were beginning. You two left...and in a couple minutes you came back, saying, "Brett said your dad isn't down here very often...I bet he wants to spend more time with you...go ahead, you stay with him." Now that is someone who understands a dad and his daughter.

Awww...Kelly, what a SWEET post! Brett is a good daddy to his babies. I LOVE that pic of him holding LL Ok, I know Brandyn & Austyn are technically not "babies" But I am sure that deep down he still considers them to be! I am not a parent, but know that I am my mom's baby! And I am 33...LOL! I hope Jason will be just as good of a daddy, and hubby, as Brett is! xoxo

I love dads with their kids. In the pic with her daddy she looks very territorial. I think she's telling mom its HER time with daddy. ;-)

I love the pic of her in the swing, she looks SO happy. Her room should be in a magazine!

Yep, that's how I fell for Mike too. I watched him with his kids, Ryan and Jessie, now my kids as well. :) I knew he'd be the right guy to have around for Parker. Thanks for sharing your life with us Kelle! I love you!
