Hello! My Name Is Daddy...

I should have started this project fourteen months ago when my wife gave birth to the Young Lady around whom this blog will focus it's contents. Better late than never. This is why I am here today on the 11.11.11. A special day indeed. 

My wife got pregnant on the day we got married. We celebrate our second anniversary on the 9th of December. It has been a great season for us I hardly remember the bad days. All along our daughter remains the gift of joy and strength. Her life allows a deeper meaning to our sense of togetherness as a family. She brightens our faces when she loves us back. To see her transform from a helpless baby each day into a stronger human gives us a feeling of fulfillment. We know we are at the start of this journey- and we anticipate great days ahead.

My hope is to be a great father. I do not know how to do this best. I hope and pray each day that I will not be a disappointment to my daughter after she matures. I am not laying aside my desire to be the best husband. To be great in both roles defines another aspect of success. And so I work towards this goal each day, and reflect on the outcomes when I see them.  


  1. Welcome to the Dad Blogging community!!

    I think NOT knowing how to be a great father is what can make a great father... Being able to shoot from the hip, punt, and a willingness to learn and adapt is exactly what we need to do.

    You'll do JUST FINE! Looking forward to reading more!

  2. Thank you so much for your thoughts sir. I noticed from your blog you have been doing this for quite some time now. I am so inspired just reading the things you share. I definitely will be heading back there more often for inspiration. Thanks for reading!
