As Emma calls Ray her Dada, this post is dedicated to him being the best Dada a little girl could ever hope for. From the moment we discovered that we were expecting our first child, Ray has been there for her. He went to every single appointment for the entire 9 months of pregnancy. Even then, he was 100% devoted to his little girl. Ray was the one that told me we were having a girl, he could already feel that special bond beginning to form between him and his Sweet Pea.
The day she entered this world his smile could light up the night. Through her newborn days and even now with her being 11 months and 1 week old, he still gets up with her during the late hours of the night if she needs anything at all. Ray adores his daughter and his princess adores her Dada.
So to my husband, the person I fell in love with 17 years ago. You are the most outstanding Dada I have ever known. I am blessed to have you in my life. Emma will always be Dada's little girl.
We celebrated this very special day by going to dinner Saturday at the Republic, giving Ray some cards, and taking him a snow cone and visiting him at work. We have also scheduled him a massage to relax since he works so hard to give us everything he can. We will also be looking into a new BBQ pit if we can't get his old one working. Emma's new word today was BBQ!
