i’m a dad

on october 21, 2010 at 11:10 in the morning, i officially became the dad of a beautiful, strawberry blonde girl named everli raye.

it’s been a week so far. a challenging week. she has a little jaundice, so we’ve been getting her blood drawn everyday at the hospital to check her bilirubin level. they also gave us this tanning bed thing that glows blue light. she is supposed to lie on it as much as possible, but we have trouble getting her to stay on it because she squirms a lot when we try to put her on it.

all in all, i’m happy to be a dad. candace is a natural mother. she’s doing a great job.
