Can you believe it has been 3 years and a couple of months ago since the day I told you? Sitting on our couch in Wake Forest, I watched you behind tear filled eyes as you opened a gift that I knew was going to change your life (our lives) forever. I still laugh when I think back to it. You thought I had gotten you an iPod. Your face was priceless as you read a white and pink bib that said, "I love Daddy." It's a memory that will always be dear to me.
I never doubted that you would be a great father. But the grace God has lavished on you to lead and love your family well has surpassed all I could have ever thought or asked from Him. When I think about you as my husband and you as the father to our girls, I can't help but to think of God and his sweet mercy and grace to me. You are a great gift to us.
I could not imagine anyone else I would want to be alongside of in this journey of parenthood than with you. Thanks for loving the Gospel in such a way that you turn us to Jesus and shows us the greatness and life-giving joy of being in Jesus.
You are a father for our joy and God's glory. We love you!

None of her other toys has a mouth that she can open and close as well as his. This makes "feeding lunch" more believable to her...
Sorry for whatever reason I couldn't get the sound to work.
Elmo can also stand on his two feet. This means Elmo can hold her hand and walk. It is hilarious watching her drag poor Elmo by the arm.
She calls Elmo Buddy. I think I call almost all little boys that. Around the :39 you can hear her call him Buddy.
My favorite part? She has lots of 'babies' she cares for. Minnie, Mickey, Elmo, Bear, etc. And if she isn't 'mothering' the whole bunch, she at least has 2.
