Anyone who has been following my blog for a while will know that I have a baby girl. She is ten weeks old tomorrow and the absolute centre of my world.
Before she came along I had no intention of ever having kids, I hate kids in general, but this little baby has completely changed my life. I know people will say this when they have children but I never believed it until it happened. The morning she was born I was so completely overwhelmed that I could not speak for 40 minutes. My wife and the midwives kept asking if I was alright and all I could do was nod.
The only thing I could say was “05.57,” the time she was born when the midwife asked so she could fill out the paperwork.
The first time I held her she screamed, it almost broke my heart and my biggest fears that she would hate me came crashing down around me. I know now that I could not have been more wrong, she I such a little daddy’s girl it’s scary.
After she was born I went outside to phone my parents, and I still couldn’t talk to them because of how emotional I was, there is nothing that could have prepared me for this.
Now ten weeks later I can’t remember what it was like without her, I miss what little sleep I used to get but its worth it.
Coming home from work to see her is what is get me through the day.
I have never felt a love like this, and I wanted to write this down. When I saw today’s Daily Prompt Baby I had to write this especially since it been a terrible day.
At 10:45 am today my wife phoned me at work in complete hysterics telling me to come home because the little one had been screaming for two and a half hours and kept being sick.
I rushed home from work, and she had cried herself to sleep. We bundled her up and rushed her down to the doctors where she was absolutely fine and giving it the big smiles. The doctor couldn’t find anything wrong with her and thinks it’s just a little stomach bug that she has picked up.
The entire time we were there my wife was freaking out, and the baby was just laying there on the doctor’s table, staring at me and smiling. Even the doctor said that she is a daddy’s girl.
So what else can I say I’m lucky to have this little bundle in my life and I love her completely.
The last two weeks have been really hard, we have moved house, and some other things happened that I’m not going to go into, it been hard and stressful and wth the baby not sleeping too so much it’s been rough. New house new surroundings and the cats haven’t been taking it well they are hissing at each other and swiping, but they will adjust.
What makes it worthwhile is coming home to this baby girl.
I never thought this could happen to me.
This may be me rambling on too much, but I had to say it.
Hope you all have a good day
