Blessed

Tonight I witnessed one of the most precious moments since Elli's been born. After finishing feeding Elli and getting her ready for bed, I laid her down on our bed to wiggle a while before bedtime. Not too long after that, Brian came home from a late meeting and knelt down beside the bed so he could be face to face with his baby girl. Elli gave her daddy a huge smile (as usual), but when he greeted her she suddenly became very focused and started "talking" in a way we'd never heard before. With an awed quiet surrounding us, she just stared straight into her dad's eyes and made sounds, gurgles and whispered squeals for a solid few minutes as if telling him all about the day's events and her cares and concerns. When she began to quiet Brian would barely whisper a word and she would start chattering all over again. You could literally them loving each other. It was beautiful. I'm so thankful for my baby girl and her wonderful daddy.
