My Little Angel(ish)

Ms. Lois M. Smith, 30 minutes old.
Name: Lois Miriam Smith
AKA: Little Miss Stubborn; Daddy's Little Brat*
Age: 2 weeks 5 days
Weight: 7 lbs 15 oz
Favorite Activities:
  • Eating
  • Pooping
  • Not sleeping
  • Scratching myself with my claw-like nails.
  • Tricking mom and dad into thinking I'm ready to sleep and then totally waking fully up when they put me down for a nap.
  • Watching My Little Pony with Dad. We watch it for me; it's not that he likes it at all and he just watches it for my sake.
 Bright-eyed and with a head full of hair this little girl seems lucid at only 30 minutes of age; full of life and curiosity. It was at this exact moment that I fell in love with her, that I knew that I would do everything I could to be the bestest daddy in the world and nothing could stop that.

And I love her. She is my little girl and nothing will change that. I will protect her, I will see to her happiness, and I will make huge mistakes while trying to be perfect; this is my job.

Let me translate: "Get me out of the baby torture device!"
Even at moments like this one, she is my little girl and I love her.

So let me say now to my little one for posterity's sake:

Lois, I am sincerely sorry for all the mistakes that I will make and the ways that I will screw you up as you grow and learn about this world around you but I hope you never doubt my love for you, little one. I'll do my best, and I'll never, ever, EVER stop laughing at you, or myself.

And your mom? She loves you too. She'll make sure that I don't mess up too much so try not to worry about it.

*This is another thing we could NOT tell her mother. Thanks.
