Paige Bennethum's Father Returns From Iraq

Little Girl Who Captured Hearts Welcomes Dad Home From Iraq

Last July, 4-year-old Paige Bennethum captured hearts when she held her father's hand and wiped her eyes as he stood in attention, about to head to Iraq. Her mother snapped a picture of the moment, and the photo and the family became an overnight sensation.

Now dad is home and Paige is five, and she's less cuddly and more "teenagey" according to him. Of the picture, which now sits on the fireplace mantel of their Pennsylvania home, Paige says "Now I'm always gonna remember that he's going to be back after work every day." Sounds like she's still daddy's little girl!
