I’ve been working on this post for quite awhile and have started over several times along with writing it in my head.
On Wednesday I became a father. That’s right…. There is now a small child that relies on my wife and I for everything. From food and shelter to training and instruction.
I’m not one for hospitals blood, or pain so I was dreading the whole labor/birth and watching my wife go through labor pain was extremely difficult.
My wife and I didn’t know exactly what sex the baby was going to be, we decided early on that it should be a surprise. When the baby was born the doctor asked if I wanted to announce the sex, and I did. We had a boy, and my wife promptly gave him the name “Caleb.” Seeing him for the first time is an experience I will never forgot and is also very hard to put into words.
So if I seem a bit distracted, or disappear quickly, chances are if I’m at home, its because I’m off helping with the baby.
