I just had to see how writing that out feels! We're 90-99% sure your name is going to be Stevie Joy, after my dad (your grandpa).
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know how excited your dad is about you. I know you hear it a lot from me (since I'm the one writing this blog/journal), but dad is just as anxious for you to get here. You are going to have so much fun with him! When I found out you are a girl, one of the first things I thought about was how great it is going to be to watch you and your dad together. If you're anything like I was, you'll probably be a total "daddy's girl." I would love that--just promise me you'll give your mama at least a little bit of attention every now and then too! :)
Dad sent this email at work today:
I know I don't get excited about clothes and that stuff, but I do think a lot about bike rides with Stevie, finding a steel framed baby junker bike to build back into health for her to ride, oatmeal recipes that she might like, gardening, camping, building snow forts together and a bunch of other things. I think a lot about that blue Kelty carrier that your dad bought and I'm excited to go around to places with our girl strapped to me. You got me way off topic right now. I gotta focus so I can get everything done that needs to get done. I'll be home some time between 4 and 5.
He's already a great "dad" to Foxy and Jackie, and I know he'll be just as great of a daddy to you!
