"A Wife and Two Kids": Eden Turns Two-Weeks Old

Well, Eden is now 2-weeks old, so it’s about time that I show her off. She’s a precious little creature, she is! It’s still kind of hard to believe that I am the father of two children now. Growing up you see all of those movies that have the famous line, usually uttered by some down on his luck schmo that is pleading with his boss not to fire him, or some desperate guy pleading for his life, “please Johnny, I gotta wife and two kids at home!!” I remember thinking how old a guy must have to be in order to have a wife and two kids. I figured the age had to be about 40. Well, here I am at 28. Not too bad. Still, I don’t feel overly old. Kids have the tendency to make you feel younger, at times, because they can remind you how to have fun.

Eden is a great new addition to the family. She has brought a peaceful spirit into our home, which is helpful because it acts as a counterweight to Auri’s boundless spirit. Another advantage of newborns is that it tends to make wives more content. They can’t seem to get enough of the cuteness and the innocence. And I must admit, husbands can’t either. Happy two-weeks Eden.
