An Evening With Daddy...

    Tonight was a special night.  Quinn turns 3 this Saturday and it was the last time I would see her before the.  I picked up Quinn and we headed out!  It was raining so hard today!!  Every street was flooded.  I would roll Quinns window down, then back up she loved it!!!

    My parents came over for a little because they are going on a vacation for a while.  We had dinner and played a little and they said goodbye.  Have a good trip!  

    That night we were laying on the couch and I would go okay Quinn time for bed and she would say "no no" in this cute voice..  They say a pictures worth a thousand words but tonight I didn't take any i just enjoyed our night.  What touched me was when I was rocking her tonight she just laid on me in the rocker as we listened to some music.  She then looked up and put her hands on my face and just looked at me in the glow of her night light.  She didn't say a word, she didn't have too.  She just looked at me for about 10 seconds like don't worry dad its going to be okay...  

    She then gave me a kiss and rubbed my heart and said boo boo getting better.  I looked at her and said yes honey it is...  I usually bring her to bed after about 2 songs but tonight I let them keep playing on.  I just looked down and thought to my self this moment wont last because she will grow up, so I'm going to take advantage of it now...  I held her and we rocked into the night...  

    I carried her to bed and said our prayers, she's so cute how she folds her hands...  I kissed her goodnight and just looked down at my little girl.  

    I wanted to post this tonight to all the parents out there that get to look back at their little ones as the lay in bed sleeping.  

   I hope everyone is having a good week.



  1. Happy Birthday Quinn!!!

  2. Such a cute post! Sometimes I let Emma stay up a little later so we can get that extra cuddle time in or read just one more book. Some days you just have too. It's these moments that I want to hold onto forever because they grow up way too fast!
