Best Of My Website

 

Friday, September 01, 2006
This website averages about 2500 unique viewers a month. Some months I've had as much as 5000. But most months, it's right around 2500. That's a lot!

I digress. I could have never imagined the kind of time I'd want to spend with my daughter. I mean, I thought before she was born that I'd want to spend a hell of a lot of time with her, but she's like a drug! I can't stop looking at her, kissing her, holding her, watching her, or talking to her. Hell, I even change her diapers. (Yes, even the poopy ones) Now if you know me, you know that that's HUGE for me. When Kayla wakes up, she's usually in her best mood. And I LOVE it when she looks at me, takes about a second to realize I'm her dad and that she LOVES me, and smiles. Huge. Her tiny little smile could end wars. She is so beautiful.

One of the worst catch-22's about life is having to leave for work in the morning. On one hand, I like my job. Let's not go crazy and say I "love" it. Not anymore. But, I like it. If you've read my website at all in the past, you know I was hurting to find a job earlier this year. So I'm very very grateful (and why if it's great, do we not spell it "greatful"? I've never understood that) that I am working. However, the catch-22 is, is that I have to leave this beautiful precious angel baby in order to do so. The worst mornings are the mornings that she is awake when I leave. I seriously contemplate calling in sick every time she is awake and playful when I'm leaving. It's a lot easier when I leave in the morning when she's asleep.

I have a great wife though. Since Nicki is breast feeding and not working currently (I'll have a major announcement on Nicki's job status very soon, btw) she wakes up every time Kayla does during the night, and feeds her. Not once has she asked me to feed her via bottle. Nicki breast feeds Kayla all the time. Even when Kayla has been cranky in the wee hours of the morning, Nicki will take Kayla to the living room and sleep out there so I can get my proper rest. Nicki is awesome. I love her.

Well, I know this is more text than you're probably used to reading on my website, so I'll end it here. Life is pretty good right now. Have a nice weekend.

    That's what mommies do Rick. They're the most under appreciated people on the planet.

    I admire Nicki for still breastfeeding!! Can she feed Quinn too? :) But seriously folks... I love not breastfeeding (who needs cracked nipples?) and giving Matt bonding time with Quinn when HE feeds him at 4 in the morn!

    It's spelled "grateful" because it's about "gratitude" not "greatness."
