That's great! Our "little girl" is three now - it goes by quick. Get a digital camera and take lots of pictures. You'll be happy you did when she's grown.
Remember - don't get discouraged when she has no real use for you in the first say, nine-ten months. Once she gets out of the immobile stage you're going to be VERY important to her.
My daughter teases me that she's mommy's girl, but I know she knows she's mine. We've been really close since she started talking. The first few months - not so much. They don't appreciate the "help." Only Mommy. But then, once they can play with you, it's all about Daddy.
And, great choice to name her after the Cubbies. My wife would have none of that, but it wasn't for lack of trying...
