The Story

Roughly less than 2 years ago, my wife Ang (Angie), and I began to think about entering the wonderful world of parenting. Prior to that, we were very much undecided as to whether or not we actually wanted to have kids. Thinking that maybe we would like a life of travel instead.
As fate would have it, one month before we were going to start trying to get pregnant, we got pregnant. I looked at it as a sign that it was meant to be. Although, leading into the pregnancy, I had made up my own mind that I had a lot of love in my heart that needed to be shared with a child.
Fast forward to present day. Malaia (Ma-Lay-Ah), our beautiful baby girl is just over ten months old now. I'm not sure where I'd be without her my life. She is an absolute joy. She takes away any stress I may have with one tiny smile and she breathes new energy and life into my daily routines.
I look forward to teaching her and watching her grow. And if you'll allow, I intend to share my thoughts and her progress - if for nothing more than a form of a journal for her to read once she can, so she understands her dad a little better and sees what he was thinking on her journey as my daughter..
