Happy Father’s Day 2011!

(posting this a little early so Hubby can see it when Father’s Day starts on his side of the world)

Like father, like daughter!

I still remember Hubby’s face when I found out I was pregnant. He was beyond excited! In the delivery room, he was mesmerized with bringing his baby into the world.  Once she . . . → Read More: Happy Father’s Day 2011!

Building with Daddy and Grown-up goals

Before Hubby left, he and Lovebug worked on a project together.  They put together a couple shelves for her room.  They worked hard! They sawed, sanded, and glued these together and spent a few days working together on it.

Lovebug is turning her room into a “museum” because she LOVES to collect things. She collects . . . → Read More: Building with Daddy and Grown-up goals

Daddy Daughter Dance (at home)

About a month before Hubby left for his deployment, Lovebug asked for another Daddy Daughter dance at home “in our fancy clothes”.  No way was he going to turn that down!  So, once again, Hubby got all dressed up in his tux to twirl his daughter around the living room to a few songs.

It was PRECIOUS! . . . → Read More: Daddy Daughter Dance (at home)

Saying goodnight to Daddy

I just had to share this with you all.  When Hubby is home, he and Lovebug have a nightly routine that they go through to say goodnight.  She does it with me too, but it’s especially cute to watch her with him as they give each other

What is this…REVEALED!

I can’t believe so many people guessed that this was a THRONE!  You were SO CLOSE!

It’s sort of a throne…it’s a TOILET!

Lovebug created this as a toilet (with heat lamps no less!) for her Lego person.

Then, Hubby came home for Thanksgiving, took one look at it (without a person on it) and said, “Is that a . . . → Read More: What is this…REVEALED!

What is this??

It’s made out of Legos, obviously…but what is it supposed to be?  I want to hear your answers, then I’ll tell you . . . → Read More: What is this??

I couldn’t ask for more

Today at the park I asked Lovebug, “Do you know you’re beautiful?”.

She replied, “Yes. Daddy told me.”

I couldn’t ask for more.

I am so blessed to be married to a man that understands the importance of a daughter feeling loved by her daddy!

And that confidence leads to her continuing to try new things…like this really steep (fast) . . . → Read More: I couldn’t ask for more

Cheese in a can!

Remember this stuff from when you were a kid?  Or maybe just from last week?  I remember taking this with me every time I went to camp – no refrigeration needed!  We let Lovebug get one when we were shopping at the commissary while visiting Hubby this past weekend.  She had a BLAST with it!  At . . . → Read More: Cheese in a can!


Our Daddy (Hug-A-Hero) Doll arrived a couple weeks ago, and Lovebug is on cloud 9! 

Hubby has been gone since the end of August for training, and this really helps her feel connected to him!  He’s not deployed, and we are blessed to get to talk to him almost every night, but this is still . . . → Read More: Daddy-to-Go!

The best Daddy Daughter Dance ever!

A couple days before Hubby left, Lovebug was talking to him about the Daddy Daughter Dance they went to back in February.  Out of the blue Lovebug says to Daddy….”I wish we could do another Daddy Daughter Dance in our fancy clothes just in our living room at home!”.   Hey! We can do that! Why not? . . . → Read More: The best Daddy Daughter Dance ever!
