Sound Recording of the Sweetest Words Ever

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and finally got down to doing it. I luuuuuuurrrrvvvve the way Clare calls me “Daddy!” and wanted to record it for all posterity 🙂 This first video is basically me narcissistically chasing her around her dollhouse insisting that she calls me.
