When Daddy comes home!

Those of you that read my blog (all five of you!) know that David has been spending a LOT of time out to sea over the past few months. We were very excited when he got to come home for a few days this week!

Anytime Daddy is home, waking him up in the morning is top priority to the kids. Ian would much rather roar and attack as he wakes Daddy up. Isabelle on the other hand has a much sweeter approach!

This is the picture that I got of her laying on Daddy's chest. Notice the plastered-on grin. It reminds me of the one that gets stuck to your face when you have been taking wedding photos for an hour and you still want to give it your best. You could not wipe this grin off of her face. She rested on his chest for nearly 20 minutes. Just. Smiling. She is Daddy's girl, through and through.

I am thankful for the relationship that they share and I pray it will continue as she grows.

The other day we were having a conversation about how someday some man would make her feel like a princess and love her more than anything else on this earth. He would love her so much and she would love him so much that she would marry him. It didn't take her long to share with us that her intentions were to marry Daddy.

Needless to say, Daddy is wrapped around this little girl's finger!!!

After the cuddling was done, it was time to be goofy. If you want to be goofy, Ian is your guy, but Isabelle is sure not going to miss out on the fun! Poor Daddy got trampled in this game...good thing he loves them!
