Oh, hallelujah! I wanna go there!! Lucky you! ♥

Birth.....was unlike anything I could have expected. Seeing the love of my life in labor for 15 hours (5 of those without any painkiller), vomiting the last 10, seeing the baby being born....it was all.....well....almost horrific.

The love of my life was hurting. She was in so much pain because of an accident with her epidural. I kinda felt robbed....all I ever heard was how great the birth process was....and it didn't feel like that to me....

Until I saw my daughter.

When she came out....and they placed her on my wife...when they handed her to me....never has something so light (7.5 pds) felt so heavy....and yet so pure....

I was so humbled to be in her presence....that I literally wanted to crawl under a chair because I didn't feel worthy...it was so emotional....

and all I remember telling myself...with tears coming down my face....is that no one....no one.....deserves all the blessings.....no one deserves to be this lucky....

for I am blessed...

I wanted so long to be a father....I've dreamed of it for nine months....and now I just want to spend the rest of my life being her Dad.....it seems as if nothing else even matters anymore...

My promise to my daughter is this....I will be the man she needs me to be. I will show her what a man is supposed to be....so that she knows what to look for one day....I will teach her to pray...how to win and how to lose...but mostly...through my example I set by how I treat her....I will show her how to love unconditionally....

She was born at 9:46 pm....she was 19 inches and 7.5 pounds...

and it was love at first sight....
Congratulations again! What a beautiful story!

Beautifully written, Coach! That made me tear up a bit! You are and always will be a wonderful father. Big congratulations to you!

I got to witness all 3 of my grandchildren being brought into this world and it was amazing! The boys came out kicking and screaming and my granddaughter came out so peaceful with a slight "waa" then she just opened her eyes and looked around as if she was observing the whole room and everyone in it. The boys are still kicking and screaming and my granddaughter is still so peaceful and sweet. Ha ha ha! Gotta love them all, they are really great kids!

I haven't posted a Blossom yet because I didn't have a camera in my cellphone. Now I do, but I'd be too shy to take it out and take pictures in stores.

I'm about to go to uni so I just popped in to wish all a nice day!

But we are always here for you when we finally get up!

I love your "Good Morning" greeting!

I think I'm on solid ground with it now. I couldn't understand why it failed several times, then suddenly began to update. Doesn't matter, it's done now! Usually I don't have problems with these things. I did last year's update to iOS 6 directly via Wi-Fi with no problem. I did yesterday's by plugging into iTunes. That may have been my mistake.

Have a Merry Day my friends!

Just getting situated at work. I think it will be an alright day so I can spend some time here. I actually did stop at the coffee shop on base and they had a pumpkin smoothie so I tried it and it's great actually and less calories than a latte. Anyhow I am waiting to hear what the doctors are saying about Jordan they left a whole hour before I did. There is a nasty bug going around here already and a lot of my coworkers have it. Well I have to do some supervising so I have to go for a bit. Meanwhile I want everyone to have a great morning~!

Another lovely morning here.
Thanks for your prayers everyone, mom's eye pressure is almost bakc to normal so surgery is not needed! We are all so happy about this.
Now I have to do some laundry and packing before leaving for Peterborough in the morning with my friend and her daughter.
I should say the will come after being a taxi first
