You Capture - Real Life



What's my real life like these days? Well my photo should sum it up pretty quickly. It's funny, my wife and I have been talking about how much our lives have changed since our little girl was born. it's gone from 0-60 in no time at all. As crazy as it is trying to navigate the world of new parenthood, I wouldn't trade a single second. Being a dad is about the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. Sure we've had to make some sacrifices, we've lost some sleep, we've been pooped on, peed on, spit up on, but we have the cutest little girl you've ever seen to show for all of our trials.

She's wonderful. So what's my real life? My real life is my wife and my daughter and doing everything I can for both of them. I'm not perfect, sometimes I whine, but I try hard and we are doing well.

Beautiful sentiments...and I have a soft spot for rubber duckies :)

Thanks for stopping by over at my place. Hope you'll come back for a visit again soon--could use a little more of the male perspective over there :)

Oh, those baby hands. They are so perfectly formed...and so sweet and precious and postively edible!!

I can see from your previous post that she is 6 months, but congrats all the same!

This is such a sweet post. Your real life sounds wonderful and the picture is so cute! And as others have mentioned, it's nice to have a guy around in blogland.

Nothing is ever the same after baby. For the better of course, even with all the yucky-ness. LOL

Kyla said...

What a great photo! And things definitely aren't the same after kids. Makes you wonder what you did with all that time you had BEFORE kids. lol

Nice to see a guy's perspective on raising kids.

Great real life shot! Sometimes I wonder how many hours I've spent giving baths, but it always turns out to be good quality time.

Saj said...

What a sweet shot!

And I caught a bit of your previous post-try having baby boys whose aim is usually dead-on! :)

I love the capture! The post itself is so sweet, and I love your honesty.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, and the laptop skin came from DecalGirl. Maybe they've got one more your style! :)

You are a terrific daddy with a wonderful attitude. My husband was/is like this and my girls still run to greet him and kiss him at ages 18 and 15. Love the photo. BTW, my great aunt once told me that baby spit is like holy water. She never mentioned the pee or poo though. . .
