Ok, I preface this post with I’m not generally an over sharer on social media but something as amazing as this feeling I have deserved to be shared.
Since our son was born I have fallen more and more in love with him everyday. It has been a sincere yet gradual love affair that has come in waves. He didn’t just pop out and all of the sudden the rest of the world didn’t exist. To be honest the first few weeks I was more concerned with how our son’s presence was affecting our dog Coconut.
Here we are 3 months later. My son has started smiling, and laughing, and it melts my heart when I walk in the room and he smiles at me.
Two nights ago he wasn’t feeling well and Erin went in to console him. The crying was a little different, and I could tell he needed a little extra love, so I got up and went in as well. I took him in my arms and rubbed his head. Within a few moments he was ok. It was the first time I truly felt that he just needed his dad. It was a feeling I couldn’t explain and will cherish for the rest of my life. I never really knew that feeling growing up. I didn’t have that relationship with my dad as a child but I hope my son knows that I will protect him, and care for him, and love him with every ounce of my being til the day I die... On a side note after he calmed down he took the biggest poop of his life in my arms. Metaphor for something? maybe, maybe not, but I couldn’t end this post on too fluffy a note so there you go.
Praying for all our #Malibu family. Thank you to all the firefighters putting their lives at risk to protect this community.

OG crew in Venice. Mom wasn’t too keen on me parading our son around the neighborhood in just his diaper but she let me have this one because she knows Balfour Boys like to be wild, free, and nude!!! #dadlife#momsrule#newdad#coconut#adoptdontshop
