The Next Chapter: I’m going to be a Dad

I’ve always wondered what I’d feel the day I found out I’d become a Dad. Just today, I sat down in the ultra-sound room with my Wife to see my first child on a screen. It was about 9 weeks ago that we first found out and I was in two minds about telling the world or keeping it quiet til the first scan to make sure everything was ok. I’m absolutely thrilled to announceΒ I’m going to be a Dad.

I'm going to be a Dad

The proud smile on my face has no sign that it’s leaving any time soon, both Jen and I couldn’t be happier!

I keep kicking back in my chair, just thinking over and over again “I’m going to be a parent, I’m totally going to be a parent.” Now, I have the photo to carry with me reminding me that it’s completely true.

Becoming a parent was certainly something that I wanted to happen and I’m so overjoyed and proud that I can share it with Jen.

No doubt there will be terrifying exciting times ahead leading in to parenthood, but at the moment I’m just going to lap up the excitement as much as possible.

Life is amazing!
