Coolest Feeling Ever

...happens when Katie eats frozen yogurt and it I can feel our son squirming all over the place inside her. It's still so surreal to think that I'm a father, that my son is growing and moving inside my wife. I've been reading passages of Scripture (Jacob, David, Jesus) and watching quite a few films in recent months that highlight fatherhood (Dear Zachary, W., Shotgun Stories, Gran Torino) and I'm realizing that my emotional response has changed. These stories have a deeper impact on me as I prepare to be the best dad I can be; they remind me of the sacred responsibility I bear.

I'm sure the title of "coolest feeling ever" will be quickly replaced when this little guy is born and we get to hold him for the first time!

  3. Your emotional response really does change. I was able to empathize with Liam Neeson's character in Taken a lot more! =P

    But seriously, when I read news stories about children dying or being killed, it affects me a lot. I mean, it still upset me to read it before I became a dad, but the impact it has on me is even greater now.

  7. Kristy, I will try and get some up this weekend with an update.
    Candace, of course it is Golden Spoon, by now I should be part of their Golden Quart Club (that is if they had one). I eat it daily, it is my one splurge!
