I would have never thought how much I would miss my daughter until she is out of the room. I will sometimes look over at her swing expecting to see her there, she won’t be there and then I remember that she is upstairs with my wife. I just expect her to be there and I didn’t expect that to ever happen, that she could become part of my life so quickly.
It is funny to think that a year ago that I didn’t realize that I would have this beautiful bundle of joy who makes me so happy when she smiles at me or gurgles. Just the other day I was playing with a Oscar the Grouch glove puppet with her when she started giggling. I was so delighted at this giggling that I ran upstairs to get my wife and when I returned with the glove puppet she stopped giggling, but was still smiling.
