What makes me happy: Relationships

I love my job! I love the fact that I get to stay home with Abbigail. I love being able to play with her, feed her, see her when she wakes up from her naps, go on walks with her, etc. I know I have a bond with her that no one else does. I know she loves me; I'm her mom. Sometimes I get thinking about how Drew is gone for a lot of the day and I wonder if she will be able to build that kind of relationship with him too. I want her to be able to connect with her daddy and I feared that because she is so young and he is gone so much that she wouldn't be able to do that. I don't feel like this all the time, but occasionally this wanders into my mind. But yesterday, this happened: 

This made any fear or worry that I have. Seeing Abbi interact with Drew melts my heart. Completely. They way she smiles, giggles, growls (if you know my daughter, you know thats a good thing), and talks with him tells me I have nothing to worry about. Now that she is crawling, she follows him places and lately, as he is walking out the door in the morning, she doesn't take her eyes off of him. The relationship these two share is special. No one can take the place of her dad. With all of the craziness going on in this world, I am so thankful Abbi and the rest of our future littles have Drew to be their protector, provider, example, father and friend. 

This is what makes me happy! What makes you happy?
