Today was a good day!Â It wasn’t even about what I got or what we did (all of which were still really nice and greatly appreciated).Â It was about a little moment when Lil’ Baird and I were alone today.
We put Lil’ down after getting back from a late breakfast and a long day of shopping thinking she’d sleep.Â Better Half took that time to grab a quick nap too.Â I was getting stuff together to go take care of the lawn, stopped to pop my head in Lil’s room and there she was wide awake.Â Wanting Better Half to rest, I dropped my shoes, grabbed Lil’ andÂ popped down on the rocker.
For the next few minutes we just played there while I held her hands so she could stand on my lap.Â She then braced herself against my chest and started touching my face, giggling every time she did and I giggled right along with her…
We started getting a little too loud, so I gobbled her up and we went downstairs so not to disturb mommy.Â We laid out her toys and blankets on the floor and there we played for almost an hour an a half.Â Just the two of us being goofy.
She started getting sleepy so I handed her lamb to her and bundled her up. Soon she was fast asleep on the floor next to me.Â I just sat there and watched her little body take each breath and was overcome with the realization of what a blessing she truly is in our lives.
While there are a life full of memories yet to be made, this will be one that will never be forgotten!
Happy Father’s Day to me!
