Daddy I Love You! Happy Fathers Day!

Pin It I didn't have a Daddy, and you didn't have a Lexi. So God made us for each other. He made me so much like you. He even gave us matching hair do's when I was a little baby! He knew I needed a Daddy who would rough house with me, but also a daddy who would bathe me in hugs and kisses, patience and kindness, love and respect and who loves me with every ounce of his being! He knew you would need a little girl who has the most precious laugh on the planet, who loves to be tickled, who follows the rules to the T, who has the sweetest voice, who looks cute in anything she puts on, who is a bit crazy about the word NO right now, who thinks bugs are awesome, who thinks you can fix anything, and who loves you with every ounce of her being!! Isn't God AMAZING!

Together 1 week. Guangzhou China, November 2009
Home 3 months

There is nothing in this world your daddy would not do for you! Nothing!
And if he could, he would skip work every day just to be home, hanging out with his family. He so loves being a Daddy!

If we get home after your Daddy is already home, he comes running out to the car and straight to your car seat! He takes you for bike rides and sometimes the two of you go early in the morning to pick up a surprise cup of Starbucks for Mommy. He watches Dora with you and even does the ants in your pants dance with you. He gives you the best shoulder rides and elephant rides, all because he was made to be your daddy and you were made to be his Lexi!
He takes us on special vacations, he comes to all of your doctor appointments, he reads to you and sings to you. He works so hard so mommy can stay home and take care of you. He makes it possible for us to visit Grandma whenever we want and even though he just loves it when you wear just a plain pair of jeans and a t-shirt (rare never), it is daddy that makes it possible for us to shop til we drop for all of your precious baby clothes! (Thanks babe!)
He chose your name.! Yep, that's right. Daddy named you.
Holding your first lizard..... Daddy  taught you that you will never have to be afraid of anything!

Daddy is so protective of you. Even though your little 32 inch tall, 22 pound body could handle the big kids trying to push past you on this ladder, your Daddy was not going to step away!

Daddy, I love you to the moon and back!
Lexi, I love you to the moon and back!
And they lived happily ever after!

Your first face drawing.

You love the color BLUE

And the color PINK
You turn bright red when we go out in the heat and you sweat like no child I have ever seen!! (just like your daddy!)

Look at these shots, her hair is dripping from root to end!!
This is from a little outside time.

You love swimming and playing in the water

You love gymnastics and dance

You don't like dolls. Shortly after we gave you this one to play with you shoved her in your closet and put a towel on top of her! You do love to take care of your stuffed animals though. And you LOVE polly pockets!
You can count to 10 perfectly on your own and count to 20 with a little help.
You can identify many numbers and letters and all of the 8 basic shapes. You know 13 colors and you are learning about mixing colors to make new colors. You tested in 99th percentile for receptive vocabulary, expressive vocabulary and pre-school skills. With an age equivalent of 4 yrs 10 months.  On the other hand, you have a really tough time with articulation and stringing words. We are starting speech therapy in a one on one pre-school setting next Monday. You will go 4 days a week for 30 minutes at a time in hopes that the intensity of these short visits will help you to make a habit of using multiple syllables and gain better articulation.

You love to sing and do flash cards. You love to draw and play games on the ipad. You love to help grocery shop and often eat what we are buying before we even make it the the check out line. You love lip gloss and hair flowers. You love counting and saying your ABC's. You love doing puzzles and reading books. Your favorite foods are Eggs, Cantaloupe, watermelon, pure chocolate, milk, Gatorade, water, mac n cheese, broth, corn, green veggies, sweet potatoes, sweet potato fries, grapes, nutella, cookies and cream ice cream, frozen yogurt, soft yeast rolls, granola, yogurt, bananas, mandarin oranges, vegetable soup, goldfish crackers and Chinese noodles.

We love you to the moon and back baby girl!!!
