Daddy's Girl

I really don't think there is anything sweeter on earth than seeing Chet with his baby girl.  And does his baby girl ever adore him!  Oh my.  I love Chet in such an intensely new way...he has always been my best friend, and the best husband I could ever have, but seeing him as a Daddy to his daughter is something my heart can almost not handle.

Thank you Tisha (my "mom) for capturing the first moments of Chet with his daughter (first 25 photos courtesy of Shuffield Photography).

Chet changed Grey's second diaper in the NICU, and has been changing them since.  There's not a baby task he won't do.  He loves and protects his daughter fiercely.  Just ask anyone who visited Grey in her first couple weeks of life. :)

I think Chet actually spent more time with Grey in the NICU than I did, because of me being in recovery, talking with doctors and nurses, etc.  He spent hours on end holding her - and still does.

From the moment he leaves in the morning until he arrives back home, we miss Daddy.  Not a lot of women are blessed enough to have a husband who works long hours (way more than 40) a week, yet is still happy to help out when he gets home.  Chet has helped me during the long "night shift" with Grey since the first night home.

The past two weekends I hosted baby showers, which meant Chet was on "Daddy duty".  I may have texted 100 times while I was gone, but he had a peaceful, happy, healthy baby for Momma to come home to.

Grey is also Chet's little "mini-me".  I am amazed at how much they are alike, even down to attitude and expressions.  It makes my heart skip a beat when I see her doing something especially like her Daddy.

We love you Daddy!

The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.  Proverbs 23:24
