Kate’s Birth

At 5:25 pm today, Kate will be three years old.  It is hard to believe that I even had a life before she came around.  Someone once told me that his previous life completely ceased to exist the moment his first child was born.  At the time, I couldn’t quite understand his sentiment.  Now, I do.  At first I thought this sounded ominous and negative.  After having a baby, I realize how true this is but the amazing part is that I don’t for one instant miss my previous life.  Yes, it was great, but nothing can compare to the joy, fun and love I have been privileged to experience since Kate’s birth.  I think the best way to summarize the before and after is “all about you” to “all for your child”.  Nothing can prepare you for being a parent so to be a good parent I think you just need to do the best you can for the kids you have.  And sometimes most of the time it is a lot of hard work to do the best you can but you just do it because you are so much in love.

Looking back on my blog I noticed that I didn’t have any pictures up from her actual birth day.  So, here they are. Later, I will post pictures from today!
