I have to say that my girls have the best dad there is. Bryan adored Kate like no other. She was his world and he did anything and everything for her. It was so hard for him to make it on time for work because his favorite thing was playing with Kate in the mornings. He loved it when Kate would reach for his mouth. This picture is one of my very favorites of the two of them:Bryan was always so proud to be Kate's dad. He loved to have "Daddy/Daughter" nights (that's what he called it). Basically that consisted of taking her to Lowes. I didn't know that Kate had so many friends that worked there, until I went there with the both of them and everyone knew Bryan and Kate by name. One of my favorite memories was last August I had gone to a wedding reception with my mom, and Bryan decided to have a "Daddy/Daughter night with Kate. When I got home Bryan had Kate dressed in this: ...I mean I probably wouldn't have chosen this ensemble, but he was very proud of his choice. The best part was that Kate's shirt was on backwards. His response, "all of my shirts button in front...." CLASSIC!!
Bryan has always been devoted to making sure Kate had the best. He kept up on all the latest and greatest trying to help Kate's growth and development. One day I got a call from him and he had decided to go to Babies-R-Us on his lunch break. He had told me about this "AWESOME" device that he thought Kate would love. Sure enough, he showed up at home after work with this jumper:With the great amount of stress and hardships that we have endured the past 23-months, I have never once heard Bryan complain. When Kate was hospitalized, he couldn't leave work fast enough to drive to the hospital to be with Kate.
His girls mean EVERYTHING to him and Kate and Mia are so lucky to have him as their Daddy. Here's to making new memories!
