A big thanks to Disney Baby for sponsoring this post and the Disney Baby “Little Character” Contest.
Sweet little moments… little moments to cherish forever… life is made up of wonderful little moments, especially sweet little moments shared with your child. I can sit here and think of so many cherished moments with my baby girl, moments that always make me smile and brighten my day no matter how stressed out life gets. Of course I have the sweet moments, the wonderful moments of when I held her in my arms for the first time, the “oh isn’t she adorable” moments, the proud mommy moments when she reached milestones, my list is a mile long. But some of my favorite moments are those extra special ones, those magical moments in life. I had a hard time figuring out which is my favorite magical moment, I have so many, but most of mine are seeing my husband with his baby girl.
Abby is such a daddy’s girl and when she was little she was happiest in his arms, often that was the only way she would sleep. Hubby had to be away from home for a weekend for training and I’m not sure Abby (nor I) slept much that entire weekend. She wasn’t happy he was away, couldn’t figure out where her daddy was nor why he wasn’t there to hold her, she was upset the whole weekend. No matter what I did, she never was completely soothed and my poor baby cried so much. She was only about two months old (if that) and all she wanted was her daddy. I remember that morning, we were in the bedroom trying once again to get a quick little bit of sleep when he sent me a text that he was finally on his way home. For some reason I got up to get my camera and I’m so happy I did. She was fussing and had these big tears in her eyes when suddenly daddy walked in the room. She was so surprised to finally see him again, to finally have her daddy back in her sight, she just laid there staring at him for several moments. Shortly after I captured this picture she started grinning and he reached for her, oh my she was so happy to finally be back in her daddy’s arms. Moments like this, always bring tears to my eyes as I remember the details. To see that special bond between Abby and her daddy, to see how much he means to her and how much she means to him. There really are no words to describe it.
