Watching Kayelle each day, playing with her, I am reminded of what my job as her father is. I am charged, and I accepted wholeheartedly, with being the example of what a man and father is supposed to be. At 10 months I see how she responds to me, as well as, how our relationship is growing each day. I read pediatric information often so I can understand what benchmarks Kayelle is supposed to reach and what my role should be to make sure she reaches each of those steps. I see how my voice effects her and how she is learning to trust and depend on her daddy to be a guide, teacher, and protector.
When I watch Tiffany and Kayelle together I clearly understand her bonding with Tiff is different then mine. I am the disciplinarian, but also the comforter. Kayelle looks at me differently than Tiffany. But you can tell her looks are filled with Love. When she is looking you can tell she is departmentalizing who each of us is and what each of us bring to her life. Her smile and laughter is infectious and she is maturing at a fantastic rate. One thing which is clear, Tiff is a softy for her tears. I'm a little older so the tears and pouting doesn't effect me as much. Kayelle is such a ham you can see that in here even this early in her life. LOL I am so excited about her upcoming years. Each of my current moves are with the idea of how I can make things better for her and Tiffany.
I pray all the fathers our there take their role as Daddy serious because if you don't there is so much missed. I am going to continue to be the example for Kayelle so as she grows. Working hard to make sure she'll look for in others what she is use to having in her life. I am going to make sure she'll search and create incredible healthy relationship like what she'll has with her Daddy.
I pray this helps someone. I pray someone who has missed the above with their daughter, goes back and looks to repair the relationship. It's never to later. For Princess Kayelle I am going to keep at the job of being the Steward the Lord has assigned me to be.
