1 year & 2 weeks into Daddyhood

Pre-birth…
Excitement… Anticipation… Fear…
Looking forward to the magic of parenthood – playing, learning, revisiting my childhood; even changing nappies!
And yet… what changes it will wreak…

Labour and birth…
Pain… exhaustion… relief!
Finally, she is here!

The first couple of weeks…
Stumbling through a lethargic euphoria…
We have a baby!
We are parents!

The first few months…
Hard work… adjustment…
Reality hits…
(but what about the magic?)

The next few months…
Her emerging personality… from baby to toddler…
She is a person!
We really are parents!

Now…
Excitement… Anticipation… The intensifying of feelings…
Every step she takes!
Every new sound she utters!
Everything she is learning and becoming!

The magic has returned… 🙂
