Chris has been afraid that Madelyn wouldn't remember him since we hadn't seen him for 2 weeks, but yesterday after we picked him up he put his hand back to her carseat and she held onto it with both hands smiling from ear to ear. She was all smiles everytime he walked into the room and would follow him from room to room and look for him if he went missing.
This morning she woke up and after her little stretches and eye rubbing she looked over and realized that the lump next to her was not a pillow or down comforter but was Daddy! and she crawled over, sat on his chest and buried her face in his neck. I think she would have crawled in his skin if she could have and every few seconds she would sit up and look at him as if he were just a dream and she needed to make sure that he was real.
These two moments make the time apart a little easier knowing that she is a daddy's girl and time won't change that.
