Back After a Weeks Vacation

18 Jul
My Daughters Violet and Rhys.

This past week I took the first vacation from work I’ve taken in several years. I spent my time at home with my wife and my girls and I could not be more grateful that I had the chance to do so.

I got to take them shopping, and for ice cream, and got to do all kinds of cuddling and playing with them. It was a tiring week but one filled with love and joy. I can’t wait to do it all again!

Until then, it’s back to work!

Becoming Daddy

On Thursday August 7th 2014, my life was changed forever with the birth of my daughter Violet.

Violet was born at 3:30AM on Thursday VIA a C-Section. During her first few hours of life Violet had what the hospital calls a “spell” which basically means she stopped breathing in her sleep, and for the first time ever, I felt what every parent feels when something scary happens to their child.

I put on a brave face for everyone, but inside I was terrified of what could possibly happen to her when these “spells” occurred.

In the end, our little Violet was just fine and has been home with us for a couple of weeks now.Β She’s had two follow up appointments with my family doctor and is doing very well.

I’m really enjoying being a daddy and watching my little girl grow bigger and stronger every day! She’s the best thing I’ve ever played a part in creating in my life and she could not be more perfect if she tried!

Our friends and family have been amazing and incredibly supportive! We love you all!
