On Dads And Daughters


dads and daughters This photo kills me. When I say that it kills me, of course, I mean that it makes my heart melt into a drippy puddle of love.

There is really little in this world that is sweeter than seeing your big, strong husband hold your tiny newborn daughter in his hands, and look into her eyes with all the adoration in the world.

I can’t help but wonder how my husband’s relationship with our daughter will shift as the years go on. Will they be close? Will they have conflict when she becomes a teenager?

I’m sure that the future holds all sorts of surprises for us, and it is hard to tell how things will grow and change, but I can only hope that my husband always adores our little girl as much as he does in this moment, because it is truly one of the most beautiful things that I have ever seen.
