The Ordinary Moments: Daddy and Daughter

I met my partner back in 2011. I remember trying to speak to him through Facebook messenger back in 2010 but he didn't seem interested with his one word answers, but after speaking about it (a few months back), we think he was seeing someone at the time - oops! (I didn't know!). I had since then made a new Facebook and my partner had seen me at a bus stop at the end of my street (he said) and he then found me on Facebook, we met up and that was it. Nearly 5 years later we have a beautiful daughter together and a son on the way.

He is a fantastic step-dad to my first daughter, Mia and a fantastic Dad to our daughter Elliw. I can not wait for our baby boy to arrive, then our family will be complete. Seeing my partner and my girls together really does make my heart melt. I feel like such a lucky girl to have found such an amazing man and an amazing Dad to the girls. I couldn't of chosen a better Dad for Elliw and baby boy, and a step-Dad to Mia. He is truly amazing.


My girls really do look up to him. They ask for him often during the day when he goes to work. He works from 7am until 5/6pm (sometimes later) 5 days a week and then again Saturday nights So, I am also really lucky that I have such a hard working partner and that is something I hope my girls will really look up to and follow as they grow older.

When I was pregnant with Elliw, it was so nice having a partner there supporting me all the way through. Seeing him getting excited near the end but also seeing him worrying about the new arrival, was lovely too see. He was amazing during labour and it was so nice having that experience of the baby's dad/my partner with me at the birth, something I didn't experience with Mia's birth.

Since day one, my partner has grown such a big bond with Elliw. It's been so lovely seeing them play and joke around. Elliw is a spitting image of her Dad, everyone says it. I had a close bond with my Dad growing up, so it's lovely too see Elliw having that kind of bond with her Dad.
