Daddy's Girl

Not too slowly but ever so surely, Baby Girl is wrapping her daddy around her tiny little finger.

It didn’t take too much, really. First, she came out looking quite a bit like him and continues to look more like him—a big departure from our first son who is a cuter version of his mother. Second, she’s an easy-going baby and is therefore easy to enjoy.

Lastly, he happens to love babies, and Baby Girl gives him a reason to dote on her—like she might need a little more protection than her older brother. I’m always finding my husband cuddling with her, whether he’s cruising Craigslist, watching home remodel how-to’s on You Tube, or just zonked out on the couch after a long day’s work.

Here are fifteen of my favorite daddy/daughter cell phone photos from birth until now. I have to admit the two of them make a pretty good pair.

Have a photo of daddy snuggling with his baby girl? I’d love to share it in another post. E-mail to

  • Hello in the Hospital 1 of 13
    For at least one of them, it was love at first sight.
  • Loungin’ 2 of 13
    Daddy's legs make a nice recliner, especially when you're just three days old.
  • Tired Twosome 3 of 13
    At this point, Daddy was working 60-hour workweeks and remodeling our home in his spare time. Baby Girl was busy doing what she does best: growing!
  • Early Morning 4 of 13
    Is there anything better than a having a newborn in bed? A sleeping newborn is especially nice.
  • Cuddle Bugs 5 of 13
    Cuddling up on New Year's Eve. I don't think either one made it to midnight, though I recall one of them waking soon thereafter.
  • Snuggled Up 6 of 13
    Here they are, hanging out in their new house together. I'm willing to bet Daddy was watching Sports Center and breathing a big sigh of relief that our big move was over and done with.
  • Face to Face 7 of 13
    Like father, like ... daughter?
  • Nice View 8 of 13
    I especially like the view of Baby Girl when she's resting her cheeks on Daddy's shoulders.
  • Taking Care of Business 9 of 13
    Baby Girl is happy to hang out tucked in Daddy's arms while he shops for hardware for our new kitchen.
  • Snoozin’ 10 of 13
    I can't say how many times I've come into the room to find this.
  • Getting Some Lovin’ 11 of 13
    Can't blame him. Those cheeks are irresistible.
  • Seriously Snuggled 12 of 13
    I dare her to try and make her way out of this one.
  • Side by Side 13 of 13
    She looks so big propped up like that. And somebody put some pants on that kid!
