The "ie's" have it.

I don't know what it is about a little girl that makes the world such a beautiful place. I've been spending a little extra time with AJ lately and I am in awe at how she is in love with so many things. Adults are just unable to express the amazement in seeing new things and seeking out familiar objects in the world around us quite the way that a child does.

My daughter who is four doesn't come right out and say "I love the birds, or horses or cat's or dogs" She expresses her undying affection for these things with the suffix "Y" or "IE" Such as kittie or doggie or get the picture.....Maybe not, but I just did and it warmed my heart in a way that only a daughter can for her father. And that moment of love and amazement came with one word......Daddy!

I know that as the days turn in to weeks, and the weeks turn into months, and then into years she will drop many of those ie's and y's. The horsie will become a little less special and turn into a plain ole' horse and the beloved doggies and kitties will become commonplace and be simply called cats and dogs. I truly hope and pray that through the years, good times and bad times that I will always be her......Daddy!

She melts my heart when I hear her say her "ie"s. Too bad I can't be Danielleie!
