Dad has animal nicknames for all of the girls in our family. 
The boys also have nicknames, but they are not animals. 
I don't know why this is or really how they all came about
 but I love it!

I am excited to see him and the rest of the fam this weekend!

He has called me "Butterfly" ever since I was born, 
or at least as far back as I can remember

my big sis is "Blue Bird"

For every birthday and Christmas we both get something from him
with our animal on it...everything from Limoge Boxes, coffee cups to 
butterfly girl statues (i'll spare you the details, but it was how to put, hmmm...interesting 
and almost lifesize!?)
It is always a fun surprise!

There is also CooCoo (as in bird), Duckie & Chickie,
Hank, Willie & Chuckie

Love You Daddy!
