Happy Father's Day! 2013

To all the fathers out there,

Happy Father's Day!

I came across some nice Father's Day quotes today and I thought I'd share one that I liked:

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.
A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.
A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail...

The day for me was full of the normal newborn stuff, receiving several "gifts" from my daughter. We spent some time competing in staring contests and she fell asleep a couple of times in my arms. I received a few messages from friends (Thank you all!). My parents came over, helped prepare dinner, and celebrated my induction into fatherhood.

All in all, my first Father's Day was a nice and quiet one. I look forward to more in the coming years.
