::fatherly sigh::

My daughter took her first steps today.


I know I'm supposed to be "thrilled," but I can't help but feel like this is her first step towards not needing Daddy and Mommy as much anymore:-/

I know that I don't post about my experience as daddy a whole lot on this blog... but that's really just because I can't keep up with this little girl! Every parent says it, but my baby Shea REALLY IS growing up too quickly! There have been MANY challenging parenting moments for me during her 8.5 months thus far, but I can't even describe how overwhelmed with love I am for this little wonder-woman.

Note to Shea: Slow down... please.

[man, am I gonna be a sobbing-wreck when she goes to her first day of school!]

I feel the exact same way about our girls. It's ridiculous how they grow. I'm almost mad about it.

The only cure of course is to have another, and then buy a minivan.

Ooooh, the minivan. Not sure if we're ready to take that step. ;-)
