The Baby Has Landed

…And Plans Went Out The Window

Okay, it’s been 5 weeks since I wrote anything. Why?
Because baby, that’s why.
I had plans for blog posts, notes written, and even a few photos considered. Those are all memories, now.

There’s an astounding amount of hubris involved in planning for your first baby. You don’t know what to expect, so you pretend you’re preparing for the worst, when in reality, you’re just making stabs in the dark as to what you need.

I heavily overestimated my need to do anything but sit and stare at my daughter, sometimes rocking her, sometimes not, always wrapped in wonder and worry and the most absolutely strange love I’ve ever experienced.

There’s a recap post coming. And more considerations of the many ways being an older Dad is just insane (not more insane than any other, younger Dads out there, just beholden to its own style of insanity) and not for the faint of heart.

Not that I’d change anything now.
