2 Years?!

When you find out that you're going to be having a baby, people give you all kinds of advice. They tell you that life as you know it is over. They tell you that you're not going to get any sleep. They tell you that it's going to be expensive. They tell you that your carefree days are over, and that you have to start being responsible.

Nobody ever told me that I was about to fall in love with the most wonderful person I could ever imagine. Nobody said that one day this amazing little kid would run across the room to throw her arms around me and give me an unbelievably fierce hug for no reason at all, and that my heart and mind and soul would blaze with a passion that I've never known before. No one ever said that everything I've ever thought about life, the universe, and everything was about to expand exponentially, and that I'd finally understand what is important.

I don't blame them. No one could have known. There really aren't any words anyway.

I can't believe it's only been two years. I can't imagine or remember life without you in it. Happy Birthday, Yoyo.

D'ya know that feeling...

- when it's an unbelievably gorgeous day, sunny but not too hot, and there's a nice little breeze blowing....and you're in some fantastic place - like on a sailboat off the coast of eastern Australia, and you can see the sunlight glinting off the buildings of a beautiful city way off to your left, and the ocean as far as you can see to your right....and there are actual, for real, honest-to-god dolphins playing along the bow-wave of the boat you're on; and you are (for the first time in probably five years) pretty happy with the outfit you've decided to wear, and you're actually looking pretty good and you know it, and you're with about half a dozen of your best friends, and you're on your third beer and you're starting to get a pleasant buzz, and you've got this big stupid grin on your face, and you look over at your friends and they are all smiling back at you in a really great way because you look so happy and it makes them genuinely glad to really see you that way, and just at that exact moment someone turns up the radio and U2's "It's A Beautiful Day" comes on, and you just feel like everything you've ever done in your whole life has led up to this moment, right now?

Well I feel like that everytime my daughter kisses me.
