Been A While

So it’s been a long time since I’ve added a new blog. I figured I better get my butt in gear and drop a few lines haha.

My lil redheaded baby is growing in leaps and bounds! I’m truly upset by this. I want to keep her a baby forever. I know I know every proud parent says this and everyone who is sans kids says “oh geez get over it will ya?” To these people I say just wait. Some day you will be blessed with your own lil ankle biter and you will be repeating my words. Oh yes, you will. Watch and see.

Alissa is closing in on 1 year of age quicker than a west Texas hurricane. And no matter how much I plead with her to stop aging she just looks at me with those angelic eyes and gives me a Loki grin as if to say, “Dear Father I love you, and I know how much you adore my small stature and cherub cheeks, but dear sweet old man you cannot stop time and before you know it I will be walking down the aisle in my million dollar wedding gown. Oh and by the way, can I borrow the car tonight? “

I know it is inevitable that she will grow. But exactly why does it have to go so frickin fast?

I see so much of me in her. My sense of humor, my attitude, my temper. LOL I seriously don’t know WHERE she gets her temper.  (side eye) 

My girls are my life. My happiness and without them I’d be lost.

Sleeping like a baby…

Remember sleeping like this? ~~> Yeah, me neither. Just once I would like to wake up in the morning and know that I had the best sleep of my life! Look at her! Not a care in the world, sleeping in a hammock, soft fuzzy blanket next to her, binky in her mouth, KNOCKED OUT!  That’s sleeping people!

 

I wonder if they make Binky’s for adults hahaha I’M KIDDING! And keep your minds out of the gutter! LOL I need a bed that cradles my body and a soft fuzzy warm blanket, ok so I will skip on the Binky. I need to sleep like I haven’t a care in the world. Man what in the world can I do to get that kind of sleep back?!

<~~~That is some SERIOUS sleeping! Wonder what Babies dream about. What can they dream about really? Dirty diapers being changed, bottles shoved in their mouths, crying, laughing, loving. Ok so I want those kinds of dreams too. I usually dream about things that are real life nightmares….bills, work, personal drama 🙂 This sweet baby is dreaming about her everyday life and the people who love her. She doesnt have worrysome dreams, that’s what her parents are for, WE have those dreams so she doesnt have to.

So sleep on my little Angel, dream of all the fun we have and the love we share. I’ll be here when you wake up to feed you and change your diaper and to laugh with you and play games with you and teach you and provide for you and mostly to Love you.

Alissa

As a father looks into his daughter’s eyes, all she can see is her daddy’s love for her.
She may be small and she may be a baby, but she is daddy’s lil’ girl for sure.
He says he’ll teach her how to drive, and teach her what she needs to know.
She can only coo but when he leaves for work she will want to say “Don’t go”.
When daddy is stressed all he needs is to look into those blue eyes and see her smile.
He knows he has her love and his heart skips about a long country mile.
Staying up to feed her and change her diapers ain’t his game.
Without her though, he is lost and knows he wouldn’t be the same.
She will look at him and see her own hero, he will look at her and see his star.
When he is away, no matter where he is his heart and his love will never be far.
She wakes up in the morning with a smile and without ever a tear.
Her daddy says “Don’t worry Sweet-thing, I’ll always be here”
When she cries, she will be swept up into arms so tender and strong.
When mommy’s at work, daddy will say “Hush baby, mommy won’t be long”
He’ll be there for every bump and scratch, and hurt with her just the same.
He’ll say, “My sweet Alissa, how I love your name”
In her daddy’s eyes she is the reason for living, an she is his world.
And when she grows up and has a life of her own, she will always be daddy’s lil’ girl.
