It was four years ago today. Mommy and I were anxiously awaiting your arrival into our world. We were in the hospital room, Mommy in the bed, Dr. B and I watching the Padres take on the Cardinals during the MLB playoffs.
You were going to be our first baby. We were beyond excited to meet you.
So we waited, and waited.
You decided it was time to introduce yourself.
As I was watching in complete amazement, I saw the crown of your head. I was completely overcome with emotion at the power and miracle of life. I fell in love with you right then and there as I knew that I had been touched by G-d. I could no longer hold back the joy that rained from my eyes.
I never knew how much a parent could love a child until that moment when I saw you in your full naked spledor, screaming, crying, letting the world know that you had arrived and it should take notice.
I guessed you had to be around 8.5 pounds. I was astonished when you tipped the scale at 9 pounds 11 ounces.
I now had a son, a beautiful baby boy who I would love and cherish.
I am honored to be your daddy.
It was four years ago today but it seems like it was only yesterday.
I love you, Hogan Isaac, forever and always. Happy birthday, big boy!
