For the first time in years I think. I'm not a very emotional person but this one got me good and I felt like sharing.
We were out to dinner with visiting family and my daughter (6 mo.) was getting fussy/sleepy and starting to scream, so took her outside to the car while everyone else finished up. I layed her down in the backseat so I could get a bottle ready and in the midst of her pouting/crying I distinctly hear "dada" a couple times for the first time. Abondoning the bottle, I scoop her up and then she just lays in my arms smiling at me until she faded off to sleep.
Never thought I could love someone so much.
Feel free to share so I don't feel like such a sissy man.
My daughter is two, and when I heard her say dada for the first time, I cried also. More will come, trust me. its a wonderful feeling to cry by happiness then sadness/madness.

My daughter pooped herself at that age so I took her out to the car to change her (one of the reasons why I now see why people buy hatches/wagons/suvs) because I had to change her in the back seat of our Accord. She was writhing around so much that when I finally got done, I picked her up and noticed she had rubbed off the cradle cap from her head with the seat belt. I nearly barfed. Poor thing.
The only thing that had to do with your story was taking her outside to calm her ass down. And I then remembered this incident. haha
You just wait buddy...you just wait.
Def remember this moment, it's special and you will never forget it. As hard as Infant stage is, it's probably one of the best/most memorable stages of parenthood.
I remember when I took my daughter to Barney concert, when he came out and I looked at her face >>>Instant tears (mind you, I hated barney, but as my daughter started liking him, so did I).

Gotta admit, watching my daughter let her terribly behaved and out of control cousin open some of her presents to stop him from crying (after he tore through all of his and threw them aside) almost had me there. She told all of us in the room that it's ok because she wants to share and not see him cry and that she already has a lot of things. ****in A, to hear that from a 4 year old when my own BIL and SIL don't know how to teach it was a proud moment.
My wife ended up taking control and correcting their boy, who for lack of a better word, freaked out by someone controlling him. I teared up a little when my wife told her sister in front of everyone to grow up and be a parent already.
I remember the first time my little girl told me "papi" that was unreal, and then she followed with a huge hug and a kiss.
Fast forward to a few months later and she still gets me she started running towards me and just said papi papi that was a glorious moment.
I had a funny signature before, and it went to waste with the switch!
