A year ago today, I found out I was pregnant. A year ago today, I told my partner that he was going to be a dad. Today, we woke up and held our son for Dylans first Fathers Day.
This time last year, we didn’t know what to think or how to feel, but today our lives were full of happiness and love.
Dylan is an incredible father to Leo, I couldn’t ask for anything more.
Dylan: “Ironically enough, I first found out I was going to be a dad on Father’s Day last year (2016), I’ve never been more frightened in my life. I was just through my first year at uni and a baby was a long way from my intended plans.
Because it was so unexpected, getting used to the idea took a lot of time and it was the first time I’ve ever suffered from anxiety.
The day Leo came into the world I’ve never cried like that in my life! I was so scared that the worst would happen during the birth and for him to arrive loud and screaming is something I’m eternally grateful for, all the fear and anxiety was flushed away and holding him in my arms was the best moment of my whole life.
To my best friend and my firstborn son, you’re the reason why I get up in the morning. I’ll always strive to make you as proud of me, as I am of you. You’ve got so much to learn and so much growing to do and I promise I’ll be there every step of the way, holding your hand and guiding you with integrity and wisdom.
I love you more than anyone could ever know, I get the same peaceful reassurance from hearing you breathing as you do from hearing my heartbeat, none of this could have been possible without an amazing mother to Leo, so thank you and thank you to my amazing son for this perfect first Father’s Day”
I’m eternally grateful for the love and happiness my boys give me, I couldn’t ask for a better partner or more beautiful son. The love I have is unexplainable and I appreciate every moment with both.
I love watching our boy learn and grow and watching Dylan teach him and give him belly giggles.
