Everyday I understand a little bit more about what it truly means to be a father. The moment I first heard Ramona’s cry I knew but I did not fully comprehend. This little girl is an extension of me and her pain is also mine. Ramona is cutting a tooth and it hurts to hear her cry. If I could I would take all her pain so she would not have to suffer. I hate knowing that we are going to have to go through this several more times, but I guess no pain, no gain.
On Sunday my family had a late Easter dinner. I was not able to go, but I hear it was a great time. Ramona got to spend some time with her cousins. She seems to enjoy conversing with the other babies! I am thankful that we have such great family, and that Ramona has multiple cousins that she will get to grow up with. I remember all the fun I had with my cousins as a kid at Granny Grunt’s and now Ramona gets to have those memories as well.
