I can’t believe we finally made it to this point. My little girl is a year old today! Where has the time gone? It still seems to me that only yesterday, I held her for the first time. Now she is walking! Yes walking! I will be sure to post that video later this week. As K-Dub is turning one, I can’t help but look back at the key events of this past year and wonder what will the next year of her life bring?
The first one is obviously the day she was born. After a long day of waiting for BrittWhitFun to be able to push, we decide for both of their well-being that a C section would be better. Finally we went from talking to one another as the doctor did their thing to hearing that loudest cry. It was music to my ears and just like that we went from just husband and wife to now being mom and dad. I remember holding her for the first time. Her eyes looking at me and me suddenly feeling this urge to protect her and never let her out of my sight. Then she reached and grabbed my finger and it was love at first sight. I will never forget those moments when it was just me and her waiting in the recovery room for BrittWhitFun to arrive. It was a special time for me as a new father to bond with my sweet daughter. That was a moment I would never forget.
The next moment would have to be her first Easter. It was one of the first holidays when she was first-born where we had to celebrate with family. She looked so cute in her dress. It was also the start of when we decided to build our house.
Another nice event was my first Father’s Day. K-Dub, with the help of Mommy, made me a wonderful piece of art that I still have sitting at my desk at work. I got taken to lunch and nothing will ever beat that first Father’s Day.
And who could forget her first Halloween when she dressed up like Pebbles. So cute!
Then she started acting strange. She started licking refrigerators, playing in the dishwasher and doing this with her bottle caps.
Now here we are. One year later and you have to admit that she gets cuter with age. I am so happy to be her dad and even though parenthood started off with no rest, crying, and a lot of coffee, I would not have traded a second of it. It’s funny how you think your life is amazing and then it changes into something that is even better. I love being a dad and its the best job I could ever have. I hope that in the next year K-Dub learns more stuff, starts talking, eating things other than chips and puffs, and that she is happy. As long as she is happy!
