I couldn’t believe she was finally here. Though she was only a few minutes old, I loved Gracie more than anything in the world.
"Do you want to hold her?" I asked Taylor.
"Yeah," he nodded as he carefully took her and cradled her in his arms. All along I’d been worried about how Taylor would handle things once the baby was really here, but watching him hold her, I knew everything was going to be alright. He was looking at Gracie the same way he looked at me. "Yeah, there you are, there’s my little girl." He told her softly, putting his pinky in her hand.
“Thank you, baby,” he whispered to me, leaning over to kiss my forehead. “You’ve just given me the best present that I’ve ever received.”
I felt tears pool in the corners of my eyes. “Thank you for being her daddy.”
