Daddy’s Little Girl

When I was pregnant, a friend of mine (who also has a daughter) told me that the first moment I see my husband holding our baby, my heart was going to explode with more love than I ever knew I could feel. Oh boy, was she right.

When I saw Abby in his arms, I knew it was all over. I was overwhelmed by how much love I felt for Abby and Josh, and what a beautiful sight it was to see them together. I also knew that I was now chopped liver (not really, but you know what I mean). Abigail was officially a Daddy’s Girl.

As we get ready to celebrate our family’s first Father’s Day, I find myself wanting to make this day more special than any other holiday. When I was a child, my family had a special tradition of sending the respective parent on a scavenger hunt for their gifts. The first clue would be in their card and at the end of a series of other clues, the presents would be hidden. My brother and I would always help search for the gifts, filling those Sunday mornings with wonderful memories for us. For Josh’s first Father’s Day, I intend to bring the scavenger hunt tradition into our home so that Josh, Abby and any other children we have can also make some new and special memories.
