(C) Stands For Claire

"From A to Z"

.....my little Cutie pie. The beautiful little ball of attitude that has forever changed my life. I'll steal a line from my blogging buddy Bruce that went something like this, "my daughter will become the last woman that will ever break my heart, and it's a good thing." TRUE DAT.
One day, I will walk her down the aisle, on what I expect to be the most bittersweet day of my life. Bitter because my little girl will be a woman, that will be moving on to the next stage of her life, leaving her proud papa to pout on a pew. The sweet part is all in the memories, and if I do things right while she's a youngin', she may not need me much but she will always know that I will be here, waiting, just in case. So, for those of you who read this, C stands for my lovely daughter Claire. Daddy loves you so.

I think I've told you this before but she is way too cute for her own good...and yours.

Us girls sure know how to snuggle our way deep into daddy's hearts; it's just what we do.

Soooo adorable. C is for cute. You and your daughter have it.

I am a proud 30 yr old Daddy's girl. I still call him Daddy, still call him everyday just to say "I love you" and he always answers with "what do you want?" or "What'd you do this time?" and each time I know he's kidding and that he loves me more than life itself (just don't tell my 3 younger sisters)! There is NOTHING in this world that shapes a girl and dictates what kind of woman more than her relationship with her father. You are in a powerful position. I was blessed with the best father in the entire world and am a better woman for it. She is a special little cutie to have you.

She's precious and should be sold in petshops across the country.

AP, thanks. She has snuggled, that's for sure.

Haven, thanks. She is the cute one, I just donated to the cause.

Jewels, thank you so much. It is sometimes overwhelming to think about the importance of my role. I try to look at it with a day by day attitude but it's hard to not look ahead.

Hed, thanks. I teared up a little when I loaded up those pictures.

Drake, I agree. I'll donate my "time" if any ladies are interested.

When I saw the first picture, for about 5 secs I thought "your daughter is a stuffed animal" and then I looked again and my brain went "ohhh"...but she is definitely Cute!!

Nice job dad! C is also for cuddly and I'll enjoy doing it with my own daughter until the day she says it's lame.

What a beautiful tribute to such a special little girl. I too have a daughter, whose name starts with "C" so your post was extra special for me, because I was reminded of all those wonderful years when she was as little as your Claire.

The time goes so quickly, enjoy every moment - what she will remember most is the "time" you gave her - and it sounds like that is something you do willingly and lovingly.

Good on you!
