happy baba's day

father's day 2010

I don't know what it is about these two, but they can turn me into mush in a heartbeat. Really, is there anything more special than seeing the adoration between father and daughter? I don't know who adores who the most, but I'm pretty sure their feelings are quite mutual. Oh how I love them both, so very very much.

Last night Lilah and I snuck upstairs and we 'wrote' Baba's card. Lilah was so proud of all those 'X' marks (kisses) she put on the card, she's just learned to do it by herself. We discussed how the card was a secret and she put it under the blanket in her crib. I told her she could give it to Baba in the morning when he came into the room to get her. She was so excited about it, so much so that she had a hard time getting over to sleep! And I know Baba had a big grin when he brought her (and the card) into our bed this morning.

When we were praying together last night she said: "Thank you God for tomorrow - Happy Birfday (birthday) Father's Day" - it sure made me smile! She's trying to wrap her head around all these celebrations and maybe getting a little confused in the process! Also, last night when we were discussing the big secret and where we'd hide the card, she turned to me and said: "Where's Lilah's secret?" Heh! I guess she thought I'd hidden a card somewhere for her too. I had to break it to her that it was just a special day for Fathers and she wasn't a Father!

The antler hat she's wearing in a couple of the pictures below came from Montanas, where we had our dinner today, after Church.

To all the wonderful Fathers in our lives:
Colin's Dad (aka Pa), my Dad (aka Papie), Lilah's birth Baba and our 'Baba Boy'.
Thank you for the love you've each brought to our lives. We love you all so very much.
