POD – 201014 (Our little Gracie) X

Gracie’s First Day in Life…

It would be contrived to try explain the emotional roller coaster of the last 24hrs, for too many reasons. I saw Shan valiantly deliver the most precious gift I could ever receive and from the moment she opened her eyes and we locked on each other, I knew my world had changed forever… Both my fathers’ summed it up in a way I could never…

One said:

“It’s a curious mix of emotions and feelings that cannot quite be penned but it is extraordinary to say the least. A calming feeling that you are immortal, that whatever happens you have carried on your lineage, a fierce protective nature surfaces where maternal instincts from both sides come into play, a love that is unexpected, and all pervading and now…you know with certainty how I feel about you.”

The other:

“This moment now changes your life forever. Your little girl will look at her Dad as the first man she will love, she will be guided by you, and in future years will judge all others by the standard you set. She will forever idolise her dad even though you will no doubt, make her laugh or cry, make her proud or glad & even sometimes sad, she will look to you as her first love & always hold those memories close. Don’t be afraid to make a mistake or say no to her, you need to be human with good points and faults so when she makes a life of her own, she expects normality not perfection.”

I only hope I am half the Dad you both are…
