The moment Ellie was born, she let out a cry and the doctor placed her on my chest. Matt said, “It’s a girl.” And he was laughing. I was in an over-whelmed haze at that moment, but hearing that happiness, that emotion is something I will never forget.
So much joy that he had to laugh.
A few hours later, our midwife asked for her name. I looked at Matt and he said her name for the first time. That act of him naming her is one of the best moments of my life.
We have some amazing examples of fathers in our lives. Men who are hard-working, kind, selfless and who do anything for their children.
These are qualities I have always seen in Matt, and they have reached another level as he has become a Dad.
Happy Father’s Day, from our family to yours.
