Toddler Runs For First Time To Reunite With Military Dad

A two-year-old girl picked the perfect time to run for the first time as her military father entered her daycare to surprise her after being stationed overseas for six months. When Staff Sergeant Anthony Davis II, 38, headed off on deployment to Italy, his daughter, Nina, had only just started standing and barely walking. On his return home, though, Anthony got quite the surprise when Nina came running through Embracing Differences, in Havelock, North Carolina, and into her father's arms. The moment took place on March 17, and mom Britney, 35, was able to capture her daughter's milestone on video. Nina is extremely close to her father and while Anthony, an E6 in the U.S. Marines, was away, his daughter would walk around their home holding a picture of him, kissing and singing to it.
