The Gallery – Dads

This weeks Gallery theme is a good one because I get to write about me and I never get bored with that so I’m sure you don’t! I have been a dad for just over 8 weeks now and I am loving it, sure it’s hard work and I’d love to get 8 hours of sleep at night, but I wouldn’t change anything. Matilda is such a lovely, happy little girl and for 8 weeks old is sleeping pretty well. To be honest I wasn’t that excited about the actual baby bit of this process, what I’m really looking forward to is the next stage when she starts to crawl, walk, talk, go to school, the list is endless. But those first few hours will always be some of the best of my life.

I may officially have only 1 child, but Bracken is most definitely part of the family. He is always with you be it under the table when you eat, by your feet when you cook or curled up next to you on the sofa. I think him and Matilda are going to get on like a house on fire once she starts moving around, then we’re in big trouble!
