I have to tell you a story but first I want to say that this little girl has already stolen my heart and her daddy continues to remind me why I love him so much. I've always known daddies and daughters have a special relationship, but what I didn't know was what it would do to my heart to see my daughter and her daddy start to develop that sacred bond that only daddies and daughters have.
The other night Seth and I had just gotten done eating dinner and were just relaxing and talking. I mentioned to Seth that the baby had started kicking a little bit. (I could feel her kicking and/or elbowing, kneeing, punching at few different places.) I am now 21 weeks along and we found out that babies can start to hear inside the womb at 20 weeks. So Seth leans over and puts his face up against my belly and starts talking to our daughter. She immediately stopped kicking everywhere else and started kicking right where Seth's face was. Seth just kept talking and she just kept kicking. It was one of the sweetest things that I have ever experienced! When Seth stopped talking, she stopped kicking and every time Seth would start talking again the baby would start kicking again. I couldn't believe it!
Maybe it's just me because I am a little emotional from all the racing hormones; maybe it was because it was the first time that Seth has actually talked to my belly. Maybe it was because I got to be a part of it; I don't know. What I do know is that I got to witness the first of many sacred moments between a daddy and his daughter. I know there will be many more and I know that I won't get to witness them all but I'm going to treasure every one that I do. And I'm going to be thankful for every one that Seth and this little girl have because every daughter needs a daddy and my daughter has a wonderful daddy!
I could tell Jericho was going to be a daddy's girl from utero and I was right. Now that Jericho is here and I get to see Seth with her it melts my heart. Seth is the perfect daddy for Jericho and she absolutely adores him. I look forward watching them together in the years to come.
The video is a medley of just a few of the songs that Seth sings to Jericho on a regular basis and she loves it. No body can make Jericho smile like her daddy!
