Prior to writing this blog and while my daughter was still snuggled in my wife's belly, the plan was to write once or twice a week detailing my experience with raising this wonderful bundle of joy.
Two weeks into her birth, that plan went out the window. I believe parents understand this better than anyone when I say that, this new life has taken full control of everything out of me. Physically, mentally, and emotionally, all that I have has been put to making sure that our baby is safe and taken care of. Yet I still feel like I want to give more to her.
I will never win the World Series. I will never play in the Super Bowl. I will not cross the finish line in Talladega. But I would imagine that being in those moments is in my humble opinion, equal to being a father to this wonderful baby.
It is truly silly to admit when I admire at her every breathe, laugh when she smiles, and even adore her when she cries because she is hungry. But I wouldn't trade this feeling in the world.
I will try to post more frequently as our schedule normalizes. I have some videos and photos to share once they are organized.
In the meantime, check out this short video of baby Ayumi or IU for short smiling beautifully in her mother's arms. Baby Ayumi - 2 Months 3 Days Old
