Wordless Wednesday – Daddy’s Girl

by Erica

Erica here, stepping in for this week’s Wordless Wednesday.

This photo was taken this past April, before my princess and her daddy danced the night away. I LOVE this picture and it brings such a smile to my face.

The Daddy-Daughter Dance has become an annual tradition for my daughter, Audrey, and the hero in her life. I hope that it will continue for many years to come.

“Oh, I will dance with Cinderella.
I don’t want to miss even one song.
‘Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she’ll be gone.”
Cinderella, by Steven Curtis Chapman

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

It’s a great tradition, one she’ll cling to as she gets older (even if she goes through a little stage of “Ewwww, Daddy!” :). Love the SCC song, too…perfect companion to your photo :).

36 The Gang's Momma August 5, 2009 at 7:42 am

Love it! What special memories (and standards) Daddy is creating for his girl!

Did you catch the blurb on the 700 Club about SCC’s opening of Maria’s Big House of Hope in China? A home in Luoyang China for medically fragile orphans in honor of the daughter they lost. GREAT stuff going on there!

Oh, I’m a dork. I don’t have a recipe and coupon link, that’s a carryover from the other meme I did. :( I think I’ll repost it properly.

And, great pic! I’ve been totally amazed about the way my daughter loooooves her Daddy. It’s a new thing for me!

What a gorgeous photo! I absolutely adore pictures of daddies with their little girls.

Where did they go for their daddy-daughter dance?

Also: I love that song by Steven Curtis Chapman. It’s so beautiful and always makes me tear up a little, especially when I consider Chapman’s personal tragedy…the loss of his little Cinderella.
