Wordful Wednesday

Kid likes her water, right?

This picture was taken last summer when our Itty Bitty was about a year old. My inlaws had gotten a 'Frog Pool' and had filled it up for the grandkids. As you can tell, our Itty Bitty thought that this was a smashing idea. This picture, probably more than most taken the first 1.5 year(s) of my youngest's life truly shows the personality of Itty Bitty. . One moment she's thrilled to be alive...the next, everything and anything 'just won't do at all!!' (She puts all sorts of screams, shrieks, and whines with that attitude.) Sometimes she pouts with world class effectiveness that the middle schoolers I teach would envy. But, fortunately, she is mostly happy. One of my favorite moments of the day is when my key hits the lock to come home and I hear a muffled, "Dada, Dada...Momma., Dada!!" Which, if you comprehend 1.5 speak that is simply, "Yo, Daddy's home...Mom...Daddy is here!!"

It's good to be the Dad.

By the way, if you'd like, check out a Wordful Wednesday on Addsy located on Sneaky Momma.

This is great! I found you through your wife, and I popped over to you because I noticed your name is Lane...I have very rarely heard that name, but when I first did, I fell in love with it. I'm also a former educator, so names were hard for my hubby and I to agree on when we were expecting...I taught first grade, so the rules were: it needs to be short, phonetically correct, and unique without being ridiculous.

Lane was the big winner! That is my first-born's name.

Anyway, so nice to see a daddy blogger who is so in love with his wife and kids. :)

God Bless!
