daughter


last night we went out for dinner. the dinner party was large so emma and i ended up sitting on opposite sides of the long table. mid-dinner, i heard her calling for me. i looked over and her bright blue eyes were fixed on me. she reached her arms out.

this morning i was laying on the red couch with eli. we watched some random cartoon while he drank a cup of milk. i closed my eyes and suddenly heard emma calling for me. i walked into her room and her bright blue eyes were fixed on me. she reached her arms out.

last sunday i stood in a line at church to pick up emma from the nursery. i heard her calling for me but there was 2 parents in front of me. i patiently waited, sticker in hand, so they could match me with her. my turn arrived, i peeked in the room and her bright blue eyes quickly fixed on me. she reached her arms out.

this girl is 2 years old today. "it's a girl," david said at 12:30am on this day. i paused while my heart fluttered, i melted and i reached my arms out. a daughter, i have a daughter and i couldn't be more blissful.
