I have fallen in love...

.... with being a full time daddy! I've been slammed with some emails, so let me tell you what's been going on...

Kyla SPEAKS so much! She's brilliant... Bawwwl means ball... Shush means shoes... juush means juice... she says go... she knows when it's time to get ready to go to work and to her nanny that i have for her here and she LOVES "hollaback" by gwen stefani! oh... and she's made some special new friends that she loves very much... and she's gone on many an adventure!

Oh... and she brushes her teeth by herself... loves Gerber Graduates fruit snacks above all other and gives her daddy KISSES! yes! real KISSES from baby! It's an amazing thing if you've never experienced it. It's kinda like when she hugs my knees to keep me from going away... you dont know if you've never experienced it...

We've been having fun... and this weekend, i'll post all the pics from her time with me so far on the site... so make sure to check back for it!

AND, i'll tell you where to find a blog where i'll tell all the stories of Kyla hangin' with me... there's a ton of them! So, keep listening!

Lifehouse/Breathing...

Hi there.

It's been a bit, hasn't it? New website at WNOK.com... and I've not really written lately because I've been spending some time, as Sam said, living my life. Savoring lost moments. Experiencing new things. And learning about unconditional love.

I know what you want to ask... let me answer it now...

She is fine. Thanks for asking. We're enjoying some quality time as father and daughter. Her days are filled with fun and her evenings are filled with fun. She's become well traveled... She's made new friends... she's grown... oh how she's grown... she, like her mom and dad, loves to talk... and yeah, like her mom and dad at times, she babbles incessently...

... but it's amazing.

I've not really written because this time is special to me in so many ways... and, no offense to you, I just made a decision to keep it private and close to my heart. You've read so much about me, her, our lives, the good, the bad, the ugly...

I just decided to sit this one out. To keep it private. Because it's a special time between me and her... and I just hope you understand.

So, why did I choose now to break my silence on the blog?

I got home late tonight... around 840-ish. Ky's evening pal had put her down... and when she left, I went to the nursery... sat in the rocker and watched her sleeping...

... so peaceful. So happy. So unaware of the world... it's pressures, it's heartache, it's joys and it's sorrows. Oh if we could get back to understanding the unconditional love a child... it's almost Godlike...

And she is a gift from above...

So, as I was sitting there, I got to hear her breathing. It made me think of the Lifehouse song by the same name. Go look for the lyrics. Maybe listen to it...

... and try to listen to them breathing... it's where I want to be....

All my best. We will talk again soon. Thank you for letting me have this time... and for understanding.
