Long sleepless nights, endless diaper changes, and a spouse who now has little time left for you anymore. Add to that an overwhelming sense of responsibility that, at best, leaves you wondering about a largely uncertain future. Sometimes you wonder whether this is all that being a father is about.


But then, you remember all those little ways in which the birth of your baby has altered your life forever and you know it’s worth it… a hundred times over!


Here are just few of those many things that make fatherhood such a great experience. You can add to this list by sharing your own experiences. (To do so, click Post Comment, below.)

  • Looking into those beautiful eyes and hearing your baby say, “I love you Dad.” (And your child hasn’t even begun talking yet.)

  • Coming home to your baby after a particularly trying day at work, and realizing that you have never felt better in your life

  • Discovering the child in you all over again, as you get down on your knees to play with your baby

  • Taking endless pictures of your baby, and still feeling that you just cannot have enough of them

  • Taking your baby out for a walk and being aware of all the appreciative glances you are getting

  • Learning a whole new language as you communicate with your baby

When that busy baby of yours takes the time to stop and lay his/her head on you- even when it is just to cuddle for a minute before venturing off into their little world again!

When your smile is enough to soothe their upset.

Those first belly laughs.

Those sleepy-eyed looks and touches to make sure you are still there after they fall asleep in your arms.

These moments are priceless.

When my 3-year old boy says, "Daddy, I love you so much." I don't know if he knows what it means, but it sure is cute.
