Peek-a-Boo

When Bret arrives home after a long day at work, I'm not the only one excited to see him. Looney Tunes' Roadrunner has nothing on Gillian Grace. When she sees her Daddy walk in the room, her tiny legs can't get her across the room fast enough. There are days when I half expect to see smoke {or at least a little dust since we all know I have plenty of that} come flying out from beneath her as she burns rubber across the living room floor to welcome her Daddy home.

Evening after evening, regardless of how dog-tired Bret may be or the kind of day he's just had, he always has time for his daughter. And, after playing a while with Daddy, it's no wonder Gillian Grace sleeps so soundly at night. Am I a lucky gal or what?!

Again, adorable pictures! I think Daddies always have an extra gallon or two of energy when they get home for their kids. I know mine does! Happy Thursday!

Awww!!!! What a cute video!!! She gets so excited and near the end it seems she knows he's coming back up so she'd rather wait then keep bending down. Hahaha!! Smart little girl! :) Thanks for sharing!

It's impossible not to have permagrin while watching that.

I don't know who enjoys it more, though, Daddy or Baby?

VKT said...

That is one precious baby girl. I loved watching her play with Daddy! If you ever come to NC, I would love to meet her. She is beyond adorable in the one peeking under the ottoman.

Avery is the same way! I can't describe the excitement when Charlie comes in the door. He gets home after 8 and is tired but you would think they just woke up. They have way too much fun together! lol
