On Saturday at 2:22AM I was blessed with the gift of fatherhood. 9 long months finally came to a conclusion. My wife and I are overjoyed by this wonderful gift from God. It is moments like this that make life so awesome and amazing. Looking at my little girl makes me want to work even harder to make sure she has a wonderful life. As I promised, here are the pictures

Hayden,  Welcome to the club.  I know the exact moment I fell in love with my first daughter.  After the busy day with people in and out it was just my wife and I and the baby.  My wife dosed of to sleep and the room was dimly lit.  I went over to my daughter in the bassinet an just looked at her.  The first time all day I was alone with her.  I instantly fell in love.  I have loved her ever since and forever will.  Congratulations!

What a beautiful and healthy looking sweetheart. Looks like she has mommy and daddy wrapped around her little finger already! Congratulations on your bundle of joy! I wish you all the best.

p.s. Kids are an awesome form of motivation! You will be amazed at how expensive something so little can be.
