When a "boy" daddy finally has a girl

Having a girl after 3 boys was a shock to both of us. Dominic really was surprised...said he didn't think he had it in him.

All of our boys looked the same at birth - so he was just a tad worried about how she would look. He didn't want a "manly" looking daughter! :)

But she is every bit sweet and girly and petite and it is so much fun to dress her up in pretty dresses.

So this week Dominic was out on the road for work and he and his boss had some downtime between appointments and they ran into a TJ Maxx.

And when he came home he had this for our girl - his "miss" as he calls her...

A beautiful dress - maybe for Easter? And it was only $10! It has a matching headband and these beautiful rhinestones for buttons on the back....see?!

The most special part to me was when he said "This is the first thing that I have ever bought for her on my own". (Insert tear)

And I couldn't help but think that one day he will buy her another dress....and that one will be white and I will always remember the day that my man brought his "miss" home her first dress from daddy.

I am so blessed to have such a caring and tender hearted man! And my girl is going to be beautiful in her little pink dress this spring!

Precious! There's nothing like seeing a masculine man "dote" on his girl! Karlena will be even more beautiful in that nice dress! :-)

That dress is precious, but the "story" behind it, even more so.

Blessings to you today!
