The one thing I am not complaining about is this silent moment I have right now with my sleeping daughter. Since December 26th, 2011, I am finally alone at last with Zoë. Laura is away with a dentist appointment. This is what I really needed, to listen to my daughter's breathing while she slept.
Zoë is an infant with so much vigor, its inspiring. Does she know that she inspires so many people, first on that list is her father. Is she aware that the way we spend our minutes is how we spend our lives? The two strongest memories I have had for the past month is the first time I saw daughter and the smiles she gives me at random times throughout the day.
After Laura told me that she was pregnant, I was in disbelief for a couple of months, and then one day I called her at work to tell her how excited I was to meet my daughter!! It sunk in that I would become a dad, and I came right out of that daze. I love being Zoë's dad.
