My daughter knows three words; yeah, yeah, and duh.

But considering our last post was titled “Coming Soon!”, let’s catch up a bit.

 

 

September 17th, a date strategically chosen to honor Porsche’s first overall wins at Le Mans with the 917, is the day our lives changed forever. For months I tried to imagine what it would be like or how it would affect me, but there really is no way to explain it or comprehend it ahead of time.

Even now, I’m at a loss for words to adequately describe having every emotion possible sprinting through your body at once. And then it happens, and you hear her for the first time and see her for the first time and feel Michelle’s hand in yours and all at once – lose your shit.

The days following fly by like minutes. Everything is new. Everything is the first time.

This is it. The moment you trained for. Trained for? Oh those classes you took? Hahaha

Get the kid home. Relief. Wait. Where are the nurses?! Hold on I’ll Google it…

OMG Michelle is incredible. She’s a natural, obviously, and amazes me every day. The nursery is beautiful and becomes the headquarters of our now round-the-clock operation. Cadence instantly loves this baby as if she were her own.

Time seriously flies. I nickname her A10. It’s a hit. And the most badass bomber jet ever.

The Porsche? It’s fine. We’ll talk about that later. She’s now able to interact with us. Game changer! Baby’s first Christmas. We didn’t get her anything. Are we bad parents?

More interaction. More learning. Every day is the most exciting day of her life. We start with real food! On taco night! Then do yoga!

Namaste, bitches.

Holy cow (fingers crossed) I think we’re starting to get the hang of this. <- that’s what I say every time before everything completely changes. Again. But we’re in a good sweet spot now, and I guess that’s why I’ve finally written this post. Parenthood is awesome.
