    Too cute! love her Tutu skirt! 🙂

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thank you, Ann. Shannon had that tutu made for her when she was still little, and we have other photos of a mini-her wearing it as well. She’s not quite 29 months old, and already looks to grown up for this daddy’s taste. Still, there’s no denying how cute she is.

  2. Nicole

    Aww…. she is so stinking cute!! You better start getting ready, she’s gonna be a heart breaker!!!

    1. Michael Schmid

      “Stinking cute” is probably a good description. She’s already got one guy wrapped around her little finger. In truth, though, while she may break hearts, I suspect it will break hers to do so. She’s a sweet little soul. Can you tell I adore her? Have a safe and Happy New Year, Nicole.

      1. Nicole

        What?!! She’s got you wrapped around your finger! No way!! 😉

        I hope you and a great New Years weekend and have a wonderful New Year!

        Oh, I just wanted to let you know that every time I come to your guys’ feet up there I just want to tickle them!! Too cute! Been meaning to tell you for a while now.

        1. Michael @ A Daddy Blog

          Hi Nicole.

          Yes, I’m definitely wrapped around her little finger. How could I not be? 🙂 On the subject of my feet photo (which I use on twitter, facebook, google, etc.) my wife says I need to change it to my face at some point. Personally I see no reason to scare readers away. Perhaps I hold a blog vote for which picture I should use as my avatar.

          Happy New Year!

  3. Letters From Home

    Very cute!

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thank you. I’m forced to agree. 😉 Loved your Santa’s Sweet Reprieve blog. Have a lovely New Year!

  4. Mitzi

    I love this photo! She is absolutely beautiful!

    1. Michael Schmid

      Awww… thank you, Mitzi. It was Texas’s loss when you abandoned us to live and love in another. state We however forgive you, as your happiness is our prime concern. Regarding this photo, yes, I must concur, she is absolutely beautiful. What else is a daddy going to feel? Hope you all are having a great holiday season.

  5. Kristen

    Tutu Cute!

    1. Michael Schmid

      Tutu Cute!

      Pretty much says it all; thanks, Kristin. On an unrelated subject I left you links to the dietary approach I’m taking to finally get rid of my “baby bump” on your blog. Hope you have a wonderful new year!

  6. Shruti

    Pretty little princess !! (:

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thank you, Shruti. That’s certainly my opinion, but I may be biased. 😉

  7. Shelley T

    So adorable! Love the Pigtails!! My girls were bald (or peach fuzz) for so long. Well Little J still only has very little hair, Big J at 4 now has some crazy curls.

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thank you, Shelley. She had very little hair when she was little, and finally (at almost 29 months of age) it is long enough to do something with. Hope your trip is going better than you feared, and that you are feeling better? Safe travels.

  8. Jennifer Cahoon

    Adorable 🙂

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thanks, Jennifer. You should know adorable kids when you see them, as they wake you every morning at your house. 😉

  9. Sharon Korkes

    She is too cute!

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thanks so much, Sharon. Did you figure out what to do on your mommy’s day off?

  10. JDaniel4's Mom

    I love her smile. She looks like she is in ballerina heaven.

    1. Michael Schmid

      My wife had that little tutu made for her years ago, and she’s worn it in two different photo shoots at two very different ages. I love her smile, too. It warms my heart so. Have fun with your New Years Eve party at Noon.

  11. Jessica AKA The Leaky Boob

    I make my girls a tutu like that every first birthday, cute and so much fun! Peeking from behind the curtain she certainly looks like she’s a star waiting in the wings!

    1. Michael Schmid

      She really wasn’t on a stage of course, but it does look like it. Very cool you made your girls tutus on their first birthdays. Loved your blog on the occasion of “Smunchie’s” first birthday.

  12. Adryon

    Awww! She’s beautiful and I love the tutu!

    Her face is just pure joy.

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thank you so much, Adryon. I’m following your blog now. Interesting story about you beating up the “firefighter”… your young, drunk and stupid condition notwithstanding. 😉

  13. SweetTMakes3

    Happy New Year to you and your little princess! Every girl needs a tutu. It’s a wardrobe essential. 😉

    1. Michael Schmid

      Happy New Year to the three of you, Jenn. Thank you so much for dropping by. I really rely on my wife for info on what little girls love. I grew up with one brother and no sisters, so this is all new ground for me. 🙂

  14. KandiLand

    First of all, I love your profile picture! Very cute. And that’s a very sweet photograph of a very sweet little ballerina! She’s got a great mischevious look in her eye and I like that!

    Thanks for stopping by from MomBlog….nice to meet you! 🙂

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thanks so much, Kandi. Hope the five of you (counting puppy Charlie) are doing great. Wishing you all the best in the New Year!

  15. tracy

    She is so adorable!

    1. Michael Schmid

      I appreciate it, Tracey. I’m forced to agree. 😉

  16. Megan (Best of Fates)


    That is all.

    1. Michael Schmid

      Megan, always great to see your… um… smiling face. 😉 Thanks!

  17. Scott aka This Daddy

    Sweet pic man. Too cute. Daughters they make you love them so hard.

    1. Michael Schmid

      You said it, Scott. And I do love her so hard. She is the thing to which my life thus far has been leading. Loving and protecting and taking care of her and my wife is my raison d’être. Always was, just didn’t know it until I met them.

  18. Lori @ In Pursuit of Martha Points

    I would have killed for that tu-tu as a child.

    And I considered my little brother dispensable.

    Probably better they weren’t around.


    1. Michael Schmid

      Thank goodness my wife was once a girl. Well, for many reasons, but in this case it’s because I’d be rubbish at knowing the things to get a little girl… like tu-tus. My wife had this one made for her, and she has at least one other I know of. She’s not quite 30 mo’s old, and daddy is completely smitten.

  19. My Somewhat Simple Life

    Well both genes did just fine! Kudos to Mommy & Daddy. Those little shoes crack me up. Too cute! 🙂

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thank you. As for the shoes, my wife found them at a consignment store. 🙂 Actually we get a lot of great stuff (some never used) for good prices there.

  20. Renee

    Oh my, what a cutie!
    And I’m thinking ham too 😉

    1. Michael Schmid

      She’s not very shy, you are right. Wonder where she got that from? Thanks, Renee, I have to agree about the cutie, part. 😉

  21. Amber

    What a doll! Love her tutu. This really makes me miss my girls being little.

    1. Michael Schmid

      Hello Amber. We have pictures of her in that exact same tutu more than a year ago. Nothing more wonderful than a little girl… and I definitely am in no hurry for her to grow up, but I understand that’s inevitable? 🙁
