Those were the words he uttered the day the ultrasound tech told us we were having a girl. I looked into his worried eyes and gently assured him that he would do with her all the things he would do with a boy.
True he has had to play polly's and dress up and many rounds of pretty pretty princess or pick a posey...But there have been just as many wrestling matches, ball tosses and power tools. Note the continued new phenomenon of making faces when mom has the camera out!
He is a good daddy. Teaching her how to do many things on her own. I imagine when she is all grown up she will be changing her own oil and making her own bookshelves(or whatever else). By the time they were done building this bird house she was a champion nail pounder!
She is so proud of that birdhouse. She has been wanting to make on for ages, but this week it was part of school and daddy jumped right in with all the supplies and they made this perfect home for some lucky bird.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
