On a somewhat dreary cold day in October of 2010 Chris and I found out we were having a little girl. I was flabbergasted and somewhat disbelieving. Chris was ecstatic; he always secretly (and not so secretly) wanted a little girl. Still, before the excitement took over, I saw just a flicker of uncertainty flash across his face.
I have to say I was right. It took us both awhile to get acclimated to being parents, but as far as the girl dad thing goes, Chris took to it like a fish to water.
He is so good with Evie, and she loves anything to do with Daddy. In fact most mornings when I go get her out of bed she looks around and says, "Daddy?!" before she even gives me a hug. At night we almost always arrive home before Chris. When she hears the garage open and the car pull into the garage she starts cheering, "Daddy! Home! Yay yay yay Daddy!". It's freaking adorable.
He's willing to play tea party and grocery shopping until the cows come home but he also has taught her how to give head butts and fist bumps. The two of them will make up games and play for hours. She loves to wear Daddy's boots and help him play Xbox. When she's in the mood Evie will demand hugs and kisses from Daddy for hours.
