a girl and her daddy

I am a daddy's girl through and through.  As a child, one look from my father and I knew I was in trouble.  One tiny word of encouragement and I was on top of the world.

They say that little girls have their daddies wrapped around their little fingers, but I think the saying goes both ways.  I would do just about anything for my father, and I know that Emmy will one day be the same.

Right now, she's actually a mommy's girl.  It's pretty much a direct result of me being the primary caretaker for the last 13 months.  But now that she is older, it seems that Chris is able to help with much more.

I'm cherishing this time that I'm her #1.  Someday that will change. At some point I'm sure that friends, sports, her driver's license, boys, shopping, etc will be #1. 

But when it's all said and done, when Emmy has cycled through all other #1's, I hope she realizes that....

daddy holds the top place in her heart.

(well, the #1 mortal...hopefully God always ranks first)


  1. So sweet, Jordan. Loved the post. And I can relate in the mommy/son way. Right now he is MY boy, and I'm not looking forward to the day a girlfriend replaces me! ;)

  2. Love your post. I feel the same way about my dad. One look from him and I knew whether he was proud of me or disappointed in me...or if I was in REALLY big trouble :) There is that brief moment where I thought my dad was a dork...well, he still is, but I find it endearing now, not annoying :)Great picture too! How do you get your pictures like that? I'm always looking for shortcuts/tips for picture perfection :)


I love hearing what you have to say:
