My Daddy


See the good looking guy in the picture that's my daddy (I'm the cute one with the pretty bow) He's a really great daddy and I want to tell you about him.

Pretty much he is the bestest daddy in the whole wide world. Don't try to tell me any different because I know the truth. What other daddy spends hours playing on the floor, gives nice warm bubble baths, reads to, sings songs to or many other things. Okay maybe there are a few others daddies that do that but mine is still the best!

Mommy and I have traveled a lot since I've been born. I've learned 2 things from my travels. First, I have the best daddy ever! Second, I don't like when mama and I travel without daddy. I try to be good, I really do, I just miss my daddy so much that sometimes I cry. I think that's why mommy doesn't want to travel without daddy anymore. It's my fault, but if that means that daddy get to come with us from now on, then I'm glad.

Ya wanna know my favorite time that I spend with my daddy? It's when he reads me the Bible to me. I know he doesn't think that I understand it yet, but I do. Some of the words are big and hard to understand but daddy does a good job of explaining them for me. I can't believe how many cool stories there are in the Bible! I hope he reads them all to me! So far my favorite one is about a big wall that God's people marched around and when they shouted to the Lord it fell down. Do you know what one I'm talking about? The other one I really like is about a boy, he was the smallest in his family, God told him to take his army, there were to many in his army so he had to send some home, to go defeat the Midianites. Hey I just realized that the boy and his army shout for the Lord just like they did in the story about the walls that comes down. In both stories when they obey God and shout they defeat the enemy. That is so cool!

I also love all the silly songs that he sing to me. It's especially fun when we get to dance together while we sing. I don't know where my daddy comes up with all these songs but I hope one day I can make up songs as well as you can. I hope he remembers all the words to them so he can teach them to me as I get bigger. Between the silly songs and all the fun games we play sometimes I can't stop giggling. I know mama gets worried because I get laughing so hard, but I just can't help it my daddy is just so much fun! I have the best daddy ever! We just got done celebrating our first Father's Day together. It was nice because I got to tell him how much I love him and how special he is. I'm excited about all the Father's Day's that my daddy and I are going to spend together!

Daddy if you are reading this I'm sorry I haven't said your name yet. It's not that I like mama any better her name is just much easier for me to say. Sometimes when I try to say your name it sounds more like baba. I know you're not a sheep or a bottle. I know your my daddy but like I said it's a hard name for me to say. I'll keep trying though and don't worry I'll get it one day. But for now can I keep calling you baba?
p.s. I love you to the moon & back!
