After ten long months of my husband being deployed, he surprised us and showed up at our house this week, ringing the doorbell. Baby Girl ran right to him and raised her hands for him to pick her up. There was no shyness, no worry, no fear. He is daddy and he is home!
I give my husband so much credit. He spent hours playing peekaboo with her on FaceTime while he was away. He didn’t go months, he didn’t go weeks, he did not even go very many days without being able to say hi to his baby. Because that is who he is, he is her daddy.
