I love you da-da!

Sophia can't talk but she can say da-da. It's pretty much the only word she says and she says it all the time and I'm not surprised, Sophia loves her daddy. She may not say it with words but I can tell by the way she lights up when Eric gets home from work and by the way she loves to rub his beard and read a bed time story sitting on his lap every night. When I do her hair or trim her nails or do anything that she is not thrilled about, she looks for her da-da and he comes to the rescue. They have a very special bond and that's evident in the way they look at each other, no need for words to realize they love each other.
It's father's day and I want to take the opportunity to acknowledge and recognized the amazing job that Eric does as a husband and father. He is my main source of support and strength to do my job as Sophia's mom the best I can. He is the only one who can truly understand how I feel when things don't go well for our daughter and always has the right words to make me feel better. We don't always agree but he validates my concerns and helps me make the best decisions for Sophia's well being.
He, just like me, had to go through the grief of losing the idea of having a typical baby and had to learn to deal with the challenges of having a kid with different needs. It hasn't been easy for him to see his daughter struggle and his wife cry but he is strong for the three of us and always finds the right words to make me feel safe, protected and loved. I am usually the one who is praised for how good Sophia is doing but I have to say that I couldn't do what I do if I didn't have such an amazing man by my side.
Yes, Sophia loves her da-da and I know without a shadow of a doubt that he loves her back just the way she is and that he is going to be there for her, protecting, supporting her and doing everything he can to make sure she has the best life.


  1. What a sweet tribute to a wonderful guy!

  2. Que hermoso reconocimiento a tan hermosa labor que realiza Eric como padre, él es un verdadero ejemplo de lo que significa la palabra Papá, al igual que tú , el amor que el profesa por su hijita es incalculable y puedo decir con conocimiento que no son necesarias las palabras para demostrar cuanto se aman, en los días que estuve jamás había visto tanto amor de su hija hacia su padre y viceversa y que decir del mágico momento en las noches cuando él le lee y ella con sus ojitos llenos de alegría y amor lo contemplan mientras él le lee cada frase llena de amor para ella.

    Un fuerte abrazo para Eric.
