Dad ME!

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

This is such a surreal post to write.

Your mom and I started writing this blog when you were just a hope and a dream. Today that hope and dream (you) is growing in your mom's belly right now.

I've thought about this day for so long. I always wondered how it would play out. Would it be this big extravagant reveal, or would it be a quiet celebration. Either way, I will never forget the way my heart felt when your mom showed me the test. I'll never forget the look on your mom's face, even through the pure and utter panic and fear the beauty and radiance that I saw reminded me of the day we got married, or the day I asked her to marry me.

I can't believe that I'm going to be a dad.

My prayer for today is that I hope I can be the sliver of a dad that your Grandpa (Opa) is. His patience, persistence, heart, love for me and your aunties has helped to shape me into who I am today.

I can't wait to meet you!
