A little love letter...

I stare at my daughter in utter amazement that I had some part in creating such a remarkable child. I cannot claim to have much responsibility for the athletic, courageous, determined girl she is, but that doesn't alter the phenomenal pride that courses through me every time she scales the monkey bars or enchants a room full of strangers with a song and a dance. Surely there must be some part of me in her! If such physical and spiritual beauty exists within her, it must be possible that I possess a similar beauty!

And so I continue to stare into her brown eyes, memorizing the sparkles of mischief and joy. I marvel at her ability to be a princess covered in mud. I pray that the wonder and beauty she sees in the world only expands as her life's course continues...Did you know that if left to her own devices, she can transform herself into a tiger? FYI, if it's not body paint, it doesn't wash off QUITE so easily...
Giving her Papa a heart attack one monkey bar at a time...
Fairly clean in this shot, actually...

Don't you just want to eat this kid up?
