daddy’s girl

filed under: I Am Mommy on September 7, 2014

They didn’t know I was there.

Olivia and Daddy

Watching them.  Feeling my heart ache as she looked up at her daddy with such love and delight in her eyes.

Giggling to myself as she collapsed in a fit of belly laughs after the tickle monster came to visit.

Feeling blessed and thankful after seeing her close her eyes and lean into daddy’s kisses.

There is just something about a content child, a happy and loved child, that makes everything right in the world.

    These pictures are a reminder of my late husband and our twin boys…we never had girls, but had we, I am sure there would have been a special bond with their daddy. He was a good and loving man!! Precious pictures!!

    This brought tears to my eyes it’s so beautiful. Doesn’t it just make you love them that much more. I wasn’t blessed with having my father in my life. So I absolutely LOVE seeing my hubby with our little girl. It makes me fall in love with him all over again. 🙂

    Hi Amanda,
    Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures of your daughter and husband. I was so close to my dad and even though he has been gone for almost 20 years, he is still with me everyday. There is a bond between daddy’s and daughters that is never broken.

    So cute. I have two small daughters and there is nothing I love more than seeing them have special moments with their dad. I know they will carry with them throughout their lives.

  • Marsha says:

    It is a very beautiful picture. It brings tears to my eyes for a few reasons…..tears of love for my own father….but tears of the deepest sorrow for my husband who will never have this opportunity……..
