We Heart Daddy
We asked Mommy to sit down with us at the computer tonight, so we could write you a very special Valentine. As you know, we don't have quite enough control of our little fingers yet to cut and paste our own cards for you, so we figured getting Mommy to type it on the blog was just as good.
First, we want you to know that we're smiling right now. Not because we have gas, either, although Lexie is being rather musical. We're smiling, because we love you so much! You are the best Daddy in the whole world!
We don't care if you are in desperate need of a haircut or haven't showered or shaved in a few days. It doesn't matter to us. We don't really have scent recognition yet. What matters is that you love us and take very good care of us.
We know you do lots of things for us every day to help us grow big and strong. You get up in the middle of the night and feed us of nice, full bottles of Mommy's milk. We love Mommy's milk! It tastes gooood! Even though you despise the scent of our vitamins, you still put them in our bottles and don't complain (much) when we burp them back up again. Sorry about that, by the way.
You also change our bottoms when we dirty our diapers, so we won't be stinky babies. When our Diaper Genie gets full, you take out the big blue bags and dump them in the garbage. We know that isn't very fun, so we want to say thank you! (We also want to warn you now that our poo poo is probably only going to get grosser. Did we mention we love you?)
We think it's funny when the other "big people" out in the world comment about how impressed they are that you do these things for us. You don't help us because Mommy told you to. You do these things because you want to. For you, it's second nature.
We're so glad you're a "hands on" kind of Daddy! We can't imagine not having tummy time with you; singing silly, made-up songs with you about smelly diapers; or sharing stories with you in our new, secret "coo" language.
You're a perfect Daddy, and we want you to know you'll always be our special Valentine! We love you so much! As soon as we figure out how to pucker up, we will give you lots of milky kisses!
Avery and Lexie AKA your lovebugs
PS: We made you special presents. They're in our diapers. :)
