At 5:57 am on the 17th of December 2016 my life changed forever.
That was the moment that my daughter Jessica was born and since then nothing has ever been the same.
These pictures were taken when she was two hour old. And I’ll be honest she broke me. I’ve said this before she was born at 5.57 am and from that moment I couldn’t speak at all for at least 40 minutes. I manged to drag myself away from her to go outside and call my mum, I could barley get the words out.
It was a brutal day.
In that first year I learned a lot, a lot changed she grew everyday becoming more and more of a person and I was lucky enough to get to be there for most of it. I got made redundant and took up the role of a full time stay at home dad.
I’m not going to lie it’s been hard, harder than I ever thought it would be but it’s been worth it.
Fast forward to 17th of December 2017 and the wee ones first birthday.
She really grew in that first year.
The second year was life changing as well she started walking, talking and became a real wee person. There are so many moments in the last twelve months that I will never forget, so many moments that reduced me to tears and still do.
Again it’s been really hard but we’ve managed it.
We have struggled with money for the last year and it’s been tough but I made it through thanks to Jessica.
The last two months have been particularly hard with her birthday and Christmas coming is a real struggle.
But again fast forward to today 17th December 2018. My beautiful daughters 2nd birthday.
Her new Scooby Doo is her favourite new toy.
That last pic was taken 2 hours ago and writing this post has been very emotional for me.
I love her more than anything else in the world and everyday with her is insane but amazing.
In February I go back to working and I won’t get to spend as much time with her but what I’m doing is for her.
Thanks for reading this.
I don’t know where the last 2 years have gone but let’s see what happens next.
