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.
Ramona had her four month doctor visit this week. She is 25.5 inches tall and tipping the scales at 14.5 pounds. All signs are pointing to a healthy little girl. I thank God everyday!
