A lot of people say that girls end up with life partners that are like their fathers. If that’s the case for you, you’d be one lucky chickadee. Just in the past week your Daddy has done and said some really cute, sweet things that I don’t want to be lost forever in my subconscious so I thought I’d start off my series of “Dear Sirena…” posts with one dedicated to the special relationship I know you and your Daddy are going to have.
- He already donned you with your first nickname, Sireenie
- He told you (via my belly) that he’s “ready to meet you anytime you decide to show up!”
- He cracked me up to the point of tears when he carried your crib mattress on top of his head (no hands) up the hill to our apartment, through the front lobby door, up and around the staircase, and down the hall to our apartment front door. You should have seen him walking so slowly and methodically in an attempt to keep the mattress from falling…and surprisingly, he succeeded in his strange and hilarious effort!
- He dedicated Stevie Wonder’s song You are the Sunshine of my Life to both of us
We already love you more than words can express and can’t wait to meet you,
