Fatherhood, One Month Later

It’s been one month since Tyler came into our lives. One month. Seems completely unreal to me.

For Kim, this has been an experience she’s accustomed to. She’s helped her sister with her two children… So diapers and bottle feedings are nothing new to her. For me, each day is an adventure. I think I may have changed two or three diapers in my lifetime, prior to Tyler. Now, I change a couple a day… feed a couple of times a day… make bottles… clean bottles… the list goes on.

Tyler runs the show. I think, even in his infanthood, he gets a sick sense of satisfaction to see his daddy dry-heave at the sight of a dirty diaper.

But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Fatherhood serves to test the best of us. It will test your patience, your endurance, your faith, your love. But the rewards are awesome if you’re willing to give it your all.
