be a father.

i took a little break from my blogging glory. it has been a crazy year. a year of ups and downs. but mainly ups. having a kid is one of the most amazing/tiring things i have ever done. everett definitely rocks my face...thoroughly and daily. i hope her fearlessness never ends.

So for the next task. Be a father. that could be kind of challenging for me...considering that i have to be a mother and i might have to hand this one over to joel. so far he has done a dang good job. he does so well at being patient and not giving into her cute face.  he can put her to bed with ease and can put her to sleep and endure the crying, knowing that she will go to sleep soon enough and know its for the best. he loves her so much already. i often catch him looking at pics of her after she has gone to sleep just to get a glimpse of her sweet smile. she is gonna be a daddy's girl...i can tell already. she cracks up at just about everything he does. i try and compete for those laughs and it just doesn't work for me...but i'm okay with that because i am laughing right along with her. so somehow i think joel has got the hang of this father stuff. everett and i are pretty lucky i think.

Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.
