Daddy's little girl

Today I held Hannah in my arms for hours. She wasn't fussy, or crying, I just held her. She still doesn't do much, but her gaze and occasional smile are enough to melt my heart. If this blog thing works, and I look upon it years from now, I hope I stumble upon this entry. Today was the day I truly felt like a Daddy. I wasn't feeding her, changing her diaper, or trying to make her stop crying. I wanted to hold her, and she just stared back at me. I didn't want to let her go, so I held her until she fell asleep, then I held her some more. Right now in my life, I shoot a lot of wedding videos, and have seen many fathers walk their daughters down the isle to give them away. I think I can wait a little bit.

Bath Time!

Bath time is usually (I say usually b/c we do have our bad days!) one of the most relaxing times for Hannah. It is the one time of the day where we all seem to slow down and enjoy the moment (even if it is only a few minutes!) We even get to steal Daddy away from his editing. I am the scrubber and Ricky is the rinser.

I imagine that once I go back to work it will mean even more since my hours I get to spend with Hannah will go from 24/7 to a few waking hours a day. Don't want to think about that yet! I still have 4 weeks at home to enjoy her!

Here is a picture I took a few days ago at Bath Time. Isn't she a sweetie?
