There are a million little anecdotes like that from our year together. I really tried to savor every second of it. Parents out there, you know it's tough and I’ll be honest, some days are really hard. Hard to the point that I’m not sure I can keep going. But then I peek at the baby monitor and see the daughter I dreamed of, warm, fed, loved, provided for, and asleep in her little bed, and I know I helped give her everything she needed today. That’s my reward and that’s when I feel like a really good dad.
