15 Photos of Daddy Daughter Moments

These two kill me with their cuteness.

There is little in life that is quite as sweet as the bond between a daddy and his daughter. Yes, daddies and sons are sweet as well, but there is just something about having a daughter that tends to soften a man up. I know that was the case for my husband.

The moment our little Fern was born, I witnessed a side of him that I hadn’t seen before. He was still the man I knew and loved, but there was a gentleness and sweetness in his eyes that was just a little different. When he holds our little lady, I can see in his face just how much he adores this girl; it is the look of a man in love, because that is exactly what he is.

When I see these two together I can’t help but go a little bit crazy with the photo taking (they’re just too precious!), so I thought I’d share 15 photos of my favorite Daddy Daughter moments between Craig and Fern.

    This was taken shortly after Fern was born. I love the look of joy and excitement on my husband's face. He looks like a man in love and it makes me so happy.

    When Fern was a baby and was hungry all the time, she was constantly trying to suck on the end of Craig's nose! It was pretty cute and hilarious.

    Her Daddy was the one holding her while she had her first taste of food: a carrot that she happily gummed away on.

    This was taken before bed time recently as Craig helped guide Fern through taking some steps. He loves watching her learn and I know how much he's looking forward to teaching her new things.

    This is Craig sharing Fern's first swing experience in our backyard.

    This was taken first thing in the morning when Fern was giddy with happiness after a good night's sleep. She loves spending lazy Saturday mornings with her Daddy.

    Coffee is a pretty important part of our family culture. We usually make espresso drinks at home, but on this particular Sunday morning we decided to have a family coffee date and Fern and Craig were both pretty excited about it.

    Face time
    Craig hates this picture, because I caught him mid-sentence, but I love the pure joy and excitement on Fern's face as she talks to her Daddy during one of his breaks at work.
  • Debriefing 13 of 15
    When my husband gets home from work, we sometimes all lay on our bed and talk about our day. It's a nice time to carve out quality family time.
  • Pre-bedtime cuddles 14 of 15

    His big giant hand...her sweet, tiny's almost more sweetness than my mama heart can bear.

    Sometimes, when these two are just being together I am overwhelmed by how lucky I am to have them. The other night the light hit them just right and they were being so sweet together and it was a little reminder that even though life isn't always perfect, these two are perfect for me.
