Two weeks ago we celebrated lolly's 2nd birthday. Her "pappa" flew in just for the occasion. I wouldnt say he wouldnt fly back exclusively for Gooly's birthday but because his is on a public holiday all over the world, he gets to celebrate it with his papa most years, except a couple years when he was too busy. And we havent really been particular about birthdays n such.
However...on 24th March, for what seemed an ordinary day, he decided days before that he would spend it with his daughter.
It took me by surprise - a bit, cos like I said, we never give two hoots about birthdays. They have always been low key celebrations.
Thus..I knew it. She is indeed so special in his heart.
Well, I mean I knew it all along..the way he smiles the moment he sees her on screen when we facetime each other. And when she says "hayo pappa", he waves n smiles even broader while replying, "hello meimei".
And he would watch the videos I sent him over and over and whatsap me a thousand times about "she is so silly" or " she is so cute". (Ok, I do that too :p)
When he sleeps, she would call out,"pappa~" and he smiles like he had the most wonderful dream even with his eyes shut.
He asks if she would know how to find a husband she can control in future.. he got worried early there.
Every girl out there is daddy's girl..but we have a daughter's pappa~ here.
It's too cute. Both of them. Together.
