I am not the blogging one of the family but while Becky and Emmett take a super well deserved nap I thought I would dump a few photos for everyone to look at.
I have to say that seeing him for the first time was probably the most PURE joy I have ever felt. Better than skiing, kayaking, climbing, surfing or the combination of the them all. That is a big statement for me. I never thought love would be so instantaneous! All I want to do is watch him, teach him, learn from him and just be his best friend.
You know the feeling you get when you meet a new friend or a personal hero of yours. That feeling that you don’t ever want to go home. Or that you want to stay up all night telling stories or causing some mischief. You just don’t want the moment to end. Well that is what life is like with Emmett.
As hard as it may be, My favorite part of fatherhood so far has been getting up in the middle of the night, Picking up a crying Emmett and holding him to my chest. It is like my heart beat or the rhythm of my breath quickly calms him down and we just sit in the dark together, I feel like at that moment I could tell him everything on my mind. Whether he understands or not does not matter as long as we are bonding, I am happy to sit there all night. What can I say he is such a cool dude.
So here are some photos, Enjoy and expect many more to come!!!!
