most of my children want mama when they are hurt, sick, or tired.... but not this one.... she is daddy's girl. she wants everything from daddy. she follows him around throughout the day. she can't go to sleep at night without something from her daddy... whether he tucks her in, gets her some water, or takes her to the bathroom... mama can put her to bed but she will not go to sleep until she gets her daddy. her most popular phrase right now is "i need my daddy!" and, if you can't tell from my typing, she really emphasizes the "need" part.
now there could be many reasons for this special connection. it could be the diapers daddy changed or how he often fed her breast milk bottles. it could be how he gives her four wheeler rides, or lets her steal his pillow. it might be how he lets her have a doughnut if she calls it a "bonut" (he has a few weaknesses). whatever the reason... this bond is wonderful and, with the birth of a new sibling eight months ago, it had perfect timing.
