"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."

2011 with Daddy!

I have three confirmed Daddy's girls on my hands. Each of the girls have their own unique relationship with Lamont, but they all adore him and have this super cool connection with him that just makes my heart happy. He is the best daddy I could have ever wanted for my daughters. They count down the days until the weekend when he'll be home, and have been loving him having some extra time off this last week! I love that he thinks it's fun to take them out for special shopping trips and stop for frozen yogurt on the way home, in the middle of winter, and then send me adorable pictures like this of their happy faces...
I love him for being this kind of a daddy. Most evenings after dinner, when the toys are picked up and teeth are brushed and pajamas are on, Lamont and the girls settle into the livingroom together to read books, or to play Candyland or Sorry! or Uno or Old Maid. It is their favorite time of the day (and mine too), this peaceful hour of the evening when the day's work is done, and happy voices and delighted giggles punctuate the quiet. The beautiful richness of our lives together fills me in those evening moments. I can't wait to watch these precious daddy-daughter relationships continue to deepen and mature as the girls grow older!
