9 months old and a bucket of cuddles



Dear Baby,

You love your dad. The other babies were fiercely loyal to mama for the first year at least, and you definitely love your mama. But you also have a softspot for daddy. He can make you smile like no one else can. You love it when he throws you way up high and you love to play games with him. Your daddy feels so connected with you Liv, and I have a sneaking suspicion that it has to do with the fact that you are his little girl. You spend time watching football with him (yes you really do, and I am sure he will remind you of this when you are older and don't care for watching football with him.) And you love to cuddle with him. This is brand new to him. Babies don't usually like to cuddle with daddy. But not you, his baby girl, you love to cuddle with him. And if mommy can't be present, you are perfectly at ease with being with daddy. I love watching this bond between the two of you. It was a bond I wondered if he'd ever get to experience. And even though he loves his boys, and all the boy things he gets to do with him, I think he would truly be sad if he missed out on his little girl. You are so treasured; by your father and I both!


Love, Mama
