    From thinking he was never going to crawl to trying feverishly to catch up to him as he ran around the house, it’s been amazing seeing how he has grown.

    Nothing puts a brighter smile on my face then coming home from working and hearing those precious two words, “Hi, daddy!”

    On the other side, I sure all parents know that not every moment of your child’s life is bliss.

    Sometimes, you get frustrated.
