Letter to My Little Lady: Your Dad Is Awesome

Dear Little Fish,

Every time your dad sees a baby his whole face lights up. Usually he starts laughing, too, like he can’t contain his joy at seeing a mini-person. When we first started dating, we were at this party together and I commented, in a mildly snotty tone, that there were “so many babies here.” Your dad looked me in the eye and said, “If you don’t like babies, we need to break up right now!” Well, ok then.

Your dad is very even-tempered. In the years that I’ve known him, I’ve never heard him yell. Not even once! Sometimes it’s hard to tell when he’s excited because he certainly does not wear his emotions on his sleeve. But whatever you do, don’t misinterpret his lack of outward emotion as a lack of enthusiasm for you. He’s over the moon about you and always will be. When in doubt, look for the twinkle in his eyes. It gives him away every time.

I love your dad so much it’s kind of ridiculous. I wonder all the time how I got lucky enough to snag him. And now I wonder the same thing about you. I’m not sure how I got so blessed, but let me tell you, I appreciate it.

Every single day.

Your dad and me about four years ago, way back when he had facial hair. I wish I still had those sweet shades.

  1. What a wonderful tribute to our baby Best’s Dad. our little fish is one lucky girl to have such great parents. We know that Tim loves babies, but the most impressive thing to me was he first time I met Tim, and we were all out to dinner together and Tim literally spent the whole evening talking with your nephew Martin who was only ten.

  2. I’ve known about his love for babies for a long time. I always hoped he’d be lucky enough to have one with someone who wanted it as much as he does, like you! Our little fish is one well-loved girl! Wait until he sees the baby stuff, those eyes with be twinkling for sure.
