Dear Daddy

6.19.2011
Violet is a little young to know that it's Father's Day, but I imagine if she could, this is what she would say to her daddy today:

Dear Daddy,

Thank you for being the best daddy a little girl could ask for. Thank you for giving me love and snuggles when I need them most.


Thank you for getting up in the middle of the night to change my diaper. Thank you for refilling Mommy's water bottle a billion times when only she could feed me. Thank you for holding me while I slept and spending time with me while I was awake, even when I couldn't do much. Thank you for taking care of my needs and keeping me safe.



Thank you, Daddy, for comforting me when I didn't feel well and for taking me to the doctor when I needed to go. Even though I was afraid sometimes at the doctor I felt better having your calming presence and strength nearby. 
Thank you for helping me to get through bouts of teething when I couldn't have any pain medication and for walking me around in my carrier when it's the only thing that would give me comfort. Daddy, thank you for taking me to fun places where I could see new things and meet new people, even when it would've been easier to go without me.


Thanks for talking Mommy into making me a fun witch costume instead of one of the usual cutesy baby costumes like a duck or a ladybug. I'm sure someday I will like zombies and vampires just as much as you do.


Thank you for playing with me and being so much fun. You let me do great things like crawl on you and pull your hair that Mommy won't let me do. Thank you for always giving me kisses and telling me how pretty I am. Daddy, thank you for thinking that I'm a smart little girl and for teaching me new things.






You helped me learn to walk and you've taken me on countless wagon, horsey, and stroller rides. I love when we go outside to exciting places like the neighbor's yard, the park, and to see parades. 


 
Daddy, thank you for being you - the very best daddy a girl could ever ask for. Happy Father's Day, Daddy. I love you.

Love,

Your Violet.
