Look what we did! We made a little Sugarpie, and what a sweet one she is. I always knew you would be a wonderful, hard-working, devoted daddy, but you have exceeded my most optimistic daydreams.
You were so attentive during the pregnancy, and worked so hard to take care of me when she was brand new so that I could take care of her. You cooked AND cleaned, kept my water-glass full (BIG task), ran errands, and made sure that I had my favorite nursing cookies. This is just a tiny bit of what you did for us, but it is huge to me.
I love seeing how Georgia lights up when she sees you. In the morning, you take her away to change her first diaper of the day. When you bring her back to me so that I can nurse in bed, she glances back at the door over and over to see if you’re coming back. She loves her time with you!
Because of you, she will love old movies, speak Latin, excel at math but have a musical soul, get exited about Hebrew National hotdogs, get to grow up vacationing in La Jolla, talk about her pancia, love Petrarch, say gazuntite instead of bless you, laugh at Mel Brooks, and be able to sing every song in A Chorus Line.
But the most important thing she will know is how hard you work so that I can stay home with her. Your drive and energy in building our business inspires me every day and I think of you every time that I am rewarded with a kiss, giggle, or smile from our sweet baby.
I always knew that I would love my child, but I never knew how much fun it could be. Thank you for being the type of man who not only shares that with me, but allows me to be there for every moment.
Happy Father’s Day to my dear husband! We love you.
