Baby Girl

Pappy is crushed. From the day she was born until yesterday she was his "Baby Girl." Twenty-four hours ago that changed. Came to a screeching halt.


She informed him in too grown-up a voice for a soon to be 4-year old that she was not a baby. Her exact words were: "Why you call me that Pappy, I not a baby." She broke his heart in one sweet moment.

I'm afraid I have news for our little princess.

You will always be Pappy's Baby Girl. Of that I am certain.

Oh BOY! It seems as though an intervention is in order. From one teary eyed Baby Girl...to another, YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD!

See you soon!
XO!

I don't think anything has changed. She has just become aware of how special she is to her granddad, and how sweet it is. My granddad called me Suz (sounds like Sooz) for some reason. I don't know how it's spelled. Sometimes he called me Skeeter. I never saw that spelled out, either. Our language wasn't a written one!
