This is an adorable slice of domesticity - and I love that your love of the Jim-Cece bond is still just as strong a decade later.

There's just a lot of really good lines in here, it's kind of hard to pick them out. The image of young Jim having serious discussions alone with his father on a fall morning is lovely, as is Jim's dance around the kitchen with Cece and sheer desire for first-thing-in-the-morning Pam.

It's great parenting fic and also just a great Jim-and-Pam fic. I like this a lot. ::pours one out for NanReg::

Author's Response: Thank you so so much!! I love that you’re going back and reading older stories! This one is an oldie but a goodie, and yes, I love that Cece/Jim bond. I can’t get enough of that! I’m so glad you loved this parenting fic!! And that you like my work enough to keep reading more!

HI again.

Been devouring your stuff lately and enjoying it as always.

Love Daddy Jim - he is so endearing. And just how we imagine him to be at home with his daughter. And Jim the husband, still passionate about Pam.
Thank You for her - Just got me right there.

The present is such a cute anecdote -love the way the humorous touches are tossed in throughout.

Tell me - was there some reference in the show I can't remember to coconut shampoo Jim uses or is it just coincidence since I refer to Jim's coconut shampoo in my story too. Perhaps we both have the same image of Jim.

Ending just what I would expect - new parents are always a little frazzled but they make the best of their evening. A beautiful birthday story. Bravo.

Author's Response: Maxine, you did a deep dive here! I think I wrote this in college back in 2009! Thank you so much for giving it some life again! I think every man I ever dated used coconut shampoo. It smelled good, but they didn’t feel emasculated lol. I think Jim is pretty comfortable but he still maybe is a bit insecure about his emotional side. So coconut shampoo it is Lolol Thank you so much for deep diving back! I highly recommend my fic Paint by Number if you get to it. It’s a really fun read and it’s completed! I was 22 then, but still loved writing and was studying it at the time! Now it’s just my side gig, during the day I’m an Assistant Director at a college. Very different :). Thank you for coming back again and again!!

Wow!  I missed this on my passes through the birthday stories.  This is perfectly delightful, JHalpert!  I think you have done just a splendid job of capturing Jim's romantic and sentimental streak.  It's a really sweet picture of life in the Halpert family.  I love it!

Thanks for adding to the birthday fun!

Author's Response: Thank you Ann! I love getting reviews from you and hearing this just made my little writer heart melt. I love writing about Jim's fatherly roles, and of course the Halpert family is always a joy. Thanks hon!

Jenn, this is as sweet as marshmallow fluff ; )  I adore your rendition of Daddy!Jim.  ...this morning, his baby was in bed with him, along with the woman he never thought he'd share a bed with, never mind offspring...He carefully took Cece's finger out of her mouth, replaced it with her binky, and slipped out of bed...  I would sure like to see that--makes my heart melt!  Thank you so much for this lovely treat.  xo

Author's Response: Aww Nancy---YOU are as sweet as Marshmallow Fluff. I'm so glad that you liked it, I haven't written about Jim and Cece yet and this was my chance. Thanks so much for reading, and I love that you loved it. Thank you for everything you do xo

Very fun story; I love anything with Daddy!Jim.

And in response to your comment on the previous review - yes, please do another chapter, because this one was so great!

Author's Response: Thank You! I'm thinking maybe I'll write a little epilogue or something ;)

Your paragraph describing Jim and Cece alone in the kitchen made me swoon.  So incredibly adorable.  Well done!

Author's Response: Aww thanks Beeswax, I love their interaction in this and there's a part of me wondering if I should do another chapter...

Oh that was fun.   As much as we know that he loves Italian food, I'm sure Daddy Jim was just as happy (if not more so) to spend his special day with his two verrrry special girls! 

Author's Response: :) Thanks! So glad you liked it Mr. Bill, I enjoyed writing it :) And of course...had to throw in his Italian food ;)

I'm sure Jim wouldn't really mind that kind of celebrating! :) Bless Cece and her bizarre gift, you'd think her mother would have pointed her in the right direction, I mean, it's almost as if she wanted her to give her dad something funny. ;)

Author's Response: Thanks Katie! Of course..little Cece has to start giving Daddy funny gifts at some point ;)

Ah! I love this story! I love Cecelia, she's so cute, demanding and sleepy! The key chain gift is funny! Such a sweet story with a cute fluffy ending.

Author's Response: Aww thank you! I'm so glad that you liked it. I love Cece in this story, she's so cute! Plus, I like making her a little trouble maker ;)

What a lovely story. I kept laughing when Cecelia would fall asleep at the most random moments, in the most random places. Very cute and really well written. And the naked lady keychain? Priceless.

Author's Response: thank you so much ♥ glad you liked it!
